Projectors are non-energy types. Projectors have power (knowledge, skills, expertise) but no energy. As a non-energy type, their Sacral Center is undefined, and they do not have a motor to the throat. This means that accessing energy can be a real challenge for Projectors, and when they are not living their strategy, they can quickly burn out their bodies and their emotions.
Projectors comprise about 20% of the population. Projectors have innate wisdom about what others need and they have an innate impulse to use this wisdom to make the world a better place to alleviate pain and suffering. Projectors are designed to guide and direct energy, especially Generator energy. Their life purpose is to guide others.
Because a Projector has no motor to the Throat and no Sacral, they will struggle with being heard and recognized, and as well with getting things started. Projectors can address a crowd and talk up a storm but if no one asked them to talk, they run the risk of either not being heard, having their ideas stolen, or inadvertently insulting or criticizing the people around them.
A Projector who initiates conversations may be misunderstood or ignored. A lifetime of this kind of reaction from others can damage self-esteem or make a Projector seem bitter. It seems counterintuitive as most of us are raised to speak up, be bold and “just do it” but truly, for the Projector, this is just not natural or easy. However, a Projector who waits to be asked, recognized or invited has an enormous amount of wisdom to share with the world. A Projector is here to be wise about energy, particularly work force and life force energy.
Projector energy is not sustainable. As a result, they are often thought of as lazy. A regular Monday through Friday, eight-to-five job is exhausting for a Projector and most Projectors, when faced with only those work options will eventually feel deeply bitter. At the same time, because they take in Sacral energy and amplify it, they can be super-generators for a time. Projectors are often out of touch with knowing when enough is enough! Because working hard and putting in long hours every day don’t work for the Projector, learning how to leverage their energy is important. Unlike Generators, they cannot be “on” all the time. Because the open Sacral takes in work force energy and amplifies it, Projectors can work intensively for a short period of time, but not for a long period of time. The open Sacral is not here to work in the traditional way. The open Sacral types are not here to work sustainably. They cannot maintain the traditional work schedule forever. Projectors usually burn out completely at 40 if they are minding a corporate schedule.
Therefore, the Projector’s way of creating has to be very intentional. One of the keys to sustaining your energy as a Projector is to leverage knowledge by mastering a system, i.e., become a specialist. You will benefit by having specific tools through which you offer guidance and direction. As a Projector, you also need time alone and lots of breaks. After being around others, it is important for you discharge that energy and get back into your own auric field.

The Projector strategy is to wait to be invited, but they can also invite others. An invitation for a projector is going to be about big life events. The big events are: job/ career, romance/ marriage, where to move to, and where to live. These must come by invitation. When those invitations come, it’s almost as if time slows down. The invitation seems to ripple through the time-space continuum. The invitation will be clearly recognizable as an invitation. However — just because you are invited doesn’t mean that you have to be grateful and say yes. It’s essential that it’s the right invitation, that the invitation feels delicious — because if it’s not, the invitation won’t work for you.
Timing between the invitations can take a long while. Society tells Projectors they can’t just sit there and wait. They have to go out and go for it. But Projectors have no energy to the Throat, so they can’t initiate. And they will not be heard if they offer their insights before they’re asked. They cannot artificially stimulate an invitation. That is why you struggle. You have no sacral energy. There’s nothing for you to respond with and nothing for others to respond to in you. Before you despair, keep in mind that you as a Projector are not here for everyone. You might know how to help everyone, but you are here only for a specific group of people. They will recognize you and invite you into sharing your wisdom with them. Your people will recognize you by your aura. That is how the Projector gets invited to the big things. But you have to wait. While you’re waiting, follow your bliss. Study what intrigues you. You are adding knowledge to your toolbox and getting ready for your next invitation.
The not-self emotional theme for the Projector is bitterness. Bitterness is very repulsive energy. Nothing pushes an invitation away faster than bitterness. It’s not a Projector world. Projectors cannot manifest their destiny. A Projector cannot just go do it. They must wait to offer their wisdom to those who ask for it. Otherwise, they will not be heard and they will be rejected. In the short run Projectors can work very, very hard with few results. While you’re waiting for the invitation, focus on your gifts, not your problems. Focus on what you are grateful for.
The Projector Aura. The aura is an invisible energy field that surrounds all living creatures, extending about 6 feet in every direction. Its frequency communicates who we are to others, and governs the way we impact or connect with others. The Projector aura is penetrating and focused. It is the Projector’s specific gift to be able to recognize the other. Their aura penetrates the G-center of the other, and that is how the Projector is able to read others. Because of this deep and focused penetrating ability, the Projector is also vulnerable to being conditioned by the other.
Projectors and sleep. Projectors have to go to bed and lie down before they’re tired. This is because of the nature of how your energy works; you need time to discharge the energy you’ve picked up during the day. You have to lie down to do this. If you wait to go to bed until you’re exhausted, you will not sleep well. Sleep alone if you can. Or with another Projector or Manifestor, provided you don’t create a defined sacral center in your composite chart.
