Privileged information, whether insider or intuitive, can be a mixed blessing — especially if you don’t know whether to share it, or with whom. It may help to favor honesty over concealment, or to check that the facts are in good order before you speak. Regardless of what you do with what you know, your chart suggests you consider carefully your motivation.
You seem to be feeling the need to withdraw inside yourself. Reflection is a useful thing, and you’ve recently discovered the creative source hiding within your depths.
