A Five-Year-Old Child Takes A First Dancing Lesson is the symbol at 8° Virgo. It’s about learning to use one’s capacity for self-expression. It’s ruled by Taurus in a twelve-fold sequence, a sign that is all about latent potential and talent. The child is being initated into a cultural tradition. We might examine our early forays into socialized beheavior whereby we were expected to play assigned roles. There may or may not be skill or ability here, but that isn’t the issue. The point is to begin cementing the self into the social dance. This may come in handy in logistical terms. We might have an ease and less social anxiety as a result of having been socialized early.
