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.
At this time you may find yourself dealing with some "legal" or governmental administrative issues - the nature of those issues perhaps giving rise to a consideration of significant principals involved in your present circumstances. In other words this may be a somewhat ethically sobering time, involving a morally charged situation in which a decision may have to be made or at least a definitive position taken and made clear to one or more individuals. Difficulty and stress should not so much be shied away from as faced in order to resolve any current tensions or unsettledness. Mental tools that may have to be mobilized now might include a sense of structure, integrity and fortitude. The actual contexts in which this may be played out might include legalities, aspects which involve foreign or international cultural interests or even educational concerns. Likely the more beneficial or constructive part of this experience may include learning, growth and development. It is advisable to take a sober look at any travel ideas or plans at this time.
This is a time when you may experience some frustration in respect to the exercise of your will, that is your "intent" in relation to activities or personal projects. There are generally two ways to look at the situation if in fact you find that to be the case. Perhaps your first reaction might be to become even more willful, wound up and intense about manifesting your intentions but the problem with that is that at this time you may very well overlook that aspect of life that is all too real in human experience, that is the inevitable encounter with "contingencies" - there ought to be an intuitive point at which time you come to understand that either life is not supporting your current endeavors or is not supporting your particular manner of application. And that is the point at which you might try the alternative view and application, that is one that takes account less of your particular intent and more of what life may be trying to "say" to you. But it is not simply that you might alliteratively take a look at your own personal environment, the situation and circumstances and conclude that a different plan of action is needed. Instead what may be required is that you become less "pro-active" and rather allow life to introduce to you to elements in your plans, goals, intentions, visions, etc. that, in your human limitations, you simply cannot see or predict currently. Certainly that requires a more passive and accepting view of your life "situation" than you may tend towards currently.
This is a time when you will likely find yourself to be more wound up, intense, willful and perhaps impatient in relation to getting what you want. Be careful in respect to not being as tolerant as you ought to be or would be normally. You are also likely to attract and possibly make new friends at this time but they, as well, may be in the same mode of intensity and willfulness as yourself - in fact that may be the common ground in the mutual attraction. Don't allow any highly driven "friend" to spur you on to act impulsively. Others may find you to be somewhat aloof or unusually detached emotionally at this time - best to be aware of the degree of your emotional expression at this time - or the lack of it. This would otherwise be a good time to engage or begin what you might see as your "ideal" activities or hobbies.
You may find that a considerable number of changes are taking place at this time - the important thing is to look at the ultimate outcome rather than what you might "lose" at present. The aspects of your life that are not working at present may have to be analyzed and broken down, that is, taken apart in order to build or rebuild new components that are ultimately more constructive. This can certainly apply to individual or group situations where the interaction does not amount to any significant good for anyone concerned.
You will be inclined towards the type of exploring and learning that brings you into contact with things that are unusual at this time - it's not that you, yourself, are necessarily feeling or acting strange or unusual in any way but rather that you feel like having your mind "refreshed" with something new or different. What you may find to be new and refreshing may provide greater motivational intensity in respect to the subject, or concern, that you are focusing on. At this time traversing a new and different path may bring you into contact with a different culture as well. In the context of education and learning in general you may find yourself focusing on a subject that brings more excitement and intensity than usual.
You may find yourself to be a little less energetic and less motivated in respect to getting practical things accomplished at this time - ideas about action are good but real implementation may be called for - include practicality . In that sense the mental energy available for daily tasks may be slightly compromised but there may be a simple solution in going inwards and engaging in some type of process of introspection or meditation so that if there is a spiritual or an emotional concern in the deeper areas of your mind there that your subconscious is trying to deal with then your mental energy may be in a sense freed up, for more "focused" practical, mundane purposes, after introspection or meditation. Taking "cap naps" is also another means of means of freeing up mental energy and motivation by way of shutting down your conscious mind temporarily so that you can gain access to your subconscious or intuition which state of consciousness may ask for a quite different means of processing or approaching daily issues or practical concerns at this time in your life. Maintain adequate levels of protein intake as well as eating fruit may become important now in order to maintain your physical energy levels and to maintain your blood sugar level - alcohol may have more of a debilitating affect on your energy system at this time and so, currently, may not be advisable. Nor is it advisable to compromise on the amount of sleep you get now as that need may be stronger now if you are not feeling as energetically driven as usual. There may be a tendency for you to be less focused on details now than you might usually be but on the other hand you may be more attuned to creative methods of dealing with daily tasks at this time and your use of intuition in respect practical thinking, as opposed to using "hard analysis" may prove to be more to your advantage due to unforeseeable contingencies. Compassion is suggested in relation to those with whom you work or deal with on a daily basis even if those practical interactions do not involved formal working relationships - stay flexible and be willing to compromise and allow for "imperfections."
At this time you may find yourself more interested in forms of art and entertainment, whether you find that on TV, a video, in the theater or in a novel. You mind may be a little more restless than usual and may seek simple little sources of entertainment or amusement such as drama or even games such as chess, computer based games and card games. Another thing that you may find yourself attracted to is recreation that is based more on sport activities but it is more likely at this point that any activity involving that would be more along the lines of discussion and registration rather than the activity itself. (For those who have children this is can be a busy period of more intense involvement in their pursuits, especially in relation to all the logistics and running around required in order to facilitate the activities that the children are involved in.) You will probably feel a little more self-conscious now, for whatever reason and this may manifest in as strong a way as to express yourself artistically or to be more vainly careful in how you appear. New romance may begin, at least in a manner now but probably more by way of initial recognition and communication rather than in any feeling mode, such as in feelings of affection.
At this time, there may be some confusion experienced in relation to your family or to a family member. A lot of emotion may surround around a family member now. The feeling will not necessarily be negative, but compassion may be called for now. This will likely be a period when you tend to sleep more and, in general, feel a little less energetic, so getting plenty of sleep may be important to you. Your dreams, at this time, will likely be more vivid, colorful and more powerful than usual and this may be a time when, if you were to understand what your dreams are saying to you, you may gain valuable insight into the direction of your life through your dreams. Be sure not to jeopardize your residence at this time by taking any risks in relation to any water or plumbing problems that you might experience. If you are having any kind of problems with water it would be appropriate to attend to that promptly.
You may engage in an unusual amount of short trips in your local environment at this time. Communications will probably also be significantly on the rise as there will likely be a need to coordinate yourself with others now in relation to all your extra "running around," that is, in your short trips, here and there, to get small practical tasks and short term projects done. It may be important now to make an effort to avoid getting caught up in idle and passing conversations that amount to nothing really more than passing distractions. Stay focused on the practical work and responsibilities that you have in front of you and try to prioritize those activities which have the most importance - this may be quite important, given the temporary juggling act that you have to perform now.
There is likely to be some uncertainty around your finances now - it is best to be cautious about how and where you spend your money - any dubious purchases should definitely be avoided as it is likely that what is presented to you is not what you would end up with. At this time your perceptions as to the value of what you possess may change somewhat - in order to avoid adjustments later it might be wise now to suspend making judgments about your personal resources at present. You may come to see the value of what you own in a different light later, so if there are any uncertainties now, it might be best to avoid any buying or selling until later, when you can better and with greater clarity, assess the value of what you have and what you want to have. Be carefully, especially, of making any purchases now that you are uncertain of.
You may find that a friend comes across, now, in a rather negative and restrictive or limiting manner - it may be important for him or her to think or believe that they are controlling you. If you feel that a "friend" is acting in a kind of restricting manner and not in a supportive and constructive manner it would be best not to resist but rather move around him or her - not that you want to "objectify" someone but on the other hand you might see their behavior as being an "obstacle" in your own personal path - in short, take a slight detour as avoidance may be the best policy.
