You may find yourself focusing on your general path in life and even more particularly on your working life and career. At an even deeper level you may be wanting to get a deep understanding of your role in life and how that is tied in, karmically, to your life path and career. You are prone to be thinking and doing things on a more conscious level now and wanting to maximize your sense of self-control and self-determination. You want the elements of your life, social and work involvements to be "on the table" and out in front of you for fully conscious and deliberate consideration. You have a more businesslike attitude now and may feel strongly towards becoming more organized regarding your life and especially your working life. You may not want to employ your imaginative thinking much at this time and you are likely to be rather impatient in respect to any "poetic" excesses or impractical thought from either yourself or others. You probably have a greater degree of efficiency in your life now and are likely to feel rather business oriented and ambitious and very perceptive regarding matters in respect to contractual agreements or business "deals." You are probably quite focused now and may have a greater ability of concentrate on practical matters than usual.
The financial context of your life may present some instability at this time but that is likely only to be in reference to your taking risks or spending impulsively now. In fact, impulsive spending will likely be the strongest concern at this time. Now it may not be entirely as simple as avoiding spending though, as you will likely have to contend with another element in relation to finances that may cause some instability and that is changes of your mind, especially in relation to your intentions regarding your own personal values and the real world objects which your mind will see as being "worthy" of those personal values. When making choices now regarding material or spiritual values try not to make decisions that come from the surface area of your psyche but rather from what you feel at a deeper level.
In respect to the working part of your life things should go well for you, at present, that is, in relation to both that part of your life involving employment and in respect to the simple mundane personal responsibilities involving daily maintenance work and chores. This would be a good period in which to take care of practical business, especially as that would help to institute more order and accountability in your life. You may even find that others are of helpful assistance in respect to getting practical tasks accomplished and out of the way.
This should prove to be an excellent time for recreational social activities as your spirit will tend to be more light, happy and festive than typically. This is also a time in which you are more apt to feel romantic and to generally be more interested in pleasurable engagements and entertainment in general. This influence may bring a disinclination towards self-discipline and certainly self-imposed hardship. You are more likely to be interested now in cloths, fashions and even jewelry and are apt to be more focused on your appearance now. The dramatic and fine arts may also begin to hold more of an attraction for you now and you may find that your entertainment manifests in the movie theatre.
This will be a good week for time spent at home and with family. You may be more inclined than usual to want to stay at home as opposed to going out and your daily decisions regarding activities may testify to that now. This will probably be a good time to catch up on any needed sleep - you may find sleep to be more sound than usual and dreams to more prominent now. You may want to redecorate your home or rearrange things during this period as you are more inclined to be conscious of the appearance of your home, the color patterns and coordination of furniture and other objects in your residence. Relations with family members may be contain an extra element of harmony and cooperation now and it would be a good time to resolve any conflicts with family members.
At this time your mind is likely to be in a mode of thought which is characterized by harmony and balance. You are more inclined now than usual to experience a mutually gracious attitude in your communications with others - conversations certainly should prove to be desirable and pleasant now, in fact, this would be a good time to write a letter to another, who you would have relate to you now in a manner of compromise and balance. This is an excellent time for any type of negotiations and agreements, especially ones that need balance. Relations with family members should go well now and you may find yourself taking a number of short pleasant trips.
At this time you will likely feel more optimism and inspiration, in relation to things in general. Your mood will likely be a little elevated and you will be more prone to find humor in your daily experiences. This is a good time for planning, as your vision of the future is probably more accurate than usual and you are more goal oriented now. You are also more likely to initiate activities now and to act in a more independent manner. Self-directed learning may come into play at this time.
This would be a good time in which to make a conscious, extra, effort towards being patience and cooperative in respect to family members - that may counterbalance any tendencies to the contrary. You should also watch for any self-centered impulses that you might subconsciously be manifesting, now, in relation to family members. This would be a good time for rigorous work around your residence, especially work that may involve using a good degree of physical effort. You may find yourself going to bed rather later than usual and that may be due to your feeling a bit restless at night - as a remedy, you might consider doing some physical exercise before retiring in order to dissipate any tensions or anxiety that might keep your mind from relaxing sufficiently.
You are likely to find that you are now focused on your life as a working whole, that is, you are prone to looking at the integrity of all of the elements of your life as they are working or not working in respect to your life path and especially insofar as all of your current activities compliment your working life, career and position that you take in respect to your family, be that as care-provider or "breadwinner." At this time it is rather less likely that you will be simply satisfied to see things "intuitively" and in terms of probability, rather, you want certainty now - you really want to see all the cards on the table and to take a totally conscious and deliberate view of what you are involved with and with what you can and cannot control.
This may be a period in which you feel rather restless physically - for that reason alone it might be a good thing to exercise now, that is to curb the type of energy that you may feel, especially in consideration of the fact that feeling compelled or driven to do something, just on the basis of temporary drives, can lead to erratic and impulsive decisions. Often a good counteractive influence in relation to impulsiveness, or a tendency towards being headstrong, is to simply relax your nervous and muscular systems. There may be a bit of a tendency now to spend more money than you have to spend - try to think carefully before you go with your financial impulses now - you may want to acquire different things more intensely that usual. Being aware of your temperament and slightly increased disposition towards agitation may help you to avoid getting into arguments with others, due to your feeling easily agitated. This is not a "negative" or "destructive" period but there is a need to use your mind to balance your energy-based impulses. It is a time in which you should be careful as to how you are applying yourself and also as to how you use your personal resources and, again, that includes spending patterns.
You are very likely to feel significantly more energetic, at this time - you will be prone to engaging in vigorous action as opposed to taking it easy - you can probably accomplish a lot at present but be careful not to act in a manner that is impulsive or rambunctious now - try not to "put the cart before the horse" or to "jump the gun" - hold yourself in check, where you conscience prompts you to do so and think before you act. This may be a very good time to engage in physical exercise. It may be important, now, to give extra thought and consideration to others and to try to apply as much compromise, grace and harmony in your daily relationships as there be a bit of a disposition towards acting very quickly or impulsively in respect to your own needs, without sufficient balance therein, in respect to others.
There is likely to be some degree of confusion in your life now and you may be strongly influenced by unconscious desires. You may even feel a bit drained due to being pulled down by unconscious drives or quests that are taxing your conscious mind against it's own will. Activities that you engage in now may take on an element of secretiveness and may even operate in a mode of seclusion. There may be a need to disguise identities in a manner that maintains your privacy. If you are a little troubled by a confusion of purposes now then do not be worried that you will miss out on anything because you are not quite able to take deliberate conscious action, rather accept this as a time when life is subtlety introducing a change or two into your life so that your familiar frame of reference is only temporarily "suspended." Try to relax and accept a little necessary change.
