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.
Your thoughts are likely to be more on home and family now. Changing circumstances and situations may call for personal adjustments. Communication may increase now with family members and there may be discussions concerning needed changes and the logistics associated with that as well as discussions around security needs. This may prove to be a good period for getting extra sleep or catching up on any sleep that you've missed and your sleep now will likely be deeper than usual. You may be more prone to dreaming now or at least to be conscious of your dreams and to probably find the content of your dreams as being more meaningful or of impacting your mind intensely now.
You may be more concerned about your finances and money in general, than usual now. That may be, in part, because you are also more attracted to objects of beauty now than you typically are. In fact even artistic things will probably hold a greater attraction for you than usual and that will likely include the dramatic arts as well as physical objects. In short, you are not in your most practical mode at this time - and that may cause you to spend more money than you should. It might be a good idea to try to curb your desire nature to some degree now. In any case, you will probably indulge in and enjoy some harmless pleasures more than usual now but try to apply some moderation, especially in relation to food, such as pastries, as you are probably a little more inclined to gain weight now.
It is likely that your mind will now begin to focus on your material resources, personal assets and finances. Your mind will tend more towards practical thought now and - you may find yourself doing some financial planning. This may also be a time in which you are more inclined to think of your body - even if you don't act on your assessment of your physical condition it will likely register now that you are either feeling OK with your physical shape or that your shape is in need of attention.
You may be rather uncertain about your financial life at this time - it is probably best to suspend any decisions around that facet of your life until later when you have more certainty about that concern - it especially important that you take heed in respect to any intuitions that you have now in regard to anyone trying to deceive you about financial concerns. You may feel the need to make small personal sacrifices out of love and compassion for another at this time. Beware of getting involved in any type of romance now that "necessitates" a "behind the scenes" secrecy based scenario as that could be very much to your own undoing.
You are likely to experience a good deal of social grace now within the context of friendships - you may even gain the financial or material favors of a personal friend and benefit from the general goodwill, generosity or support that a friend offers or gives graciously at this time. At this time there may be a prompting or even temptation to become more involved with another who has hitherto been just a friend or acquaintance - be sure that the changed or increased involvement is appropriate and emerges naturally from emotional intimacy so that the change in the status of your relationship doesn't hurt anyone else.
You are quite likely to experience interpersonal "politics" in the context of your home and family life at this time. What will likely be very important now is honesty but of equal importance will be the manner in which you convey concerns to family members - any sort of compulsive or anger driven expression at this time may add fuel to the fire - apply reason in relation to any sensitive family issues now, especially where group values are concerned and especially where joint resources are at issue. Make sure, as much as you can, that disputes that are potentially volatile are not engaged in to any extreme or excess - moderation and balance will be important now. There may be a need for repair work in respect to the home at this time - be positive and patient about that and look at the positive side in respect to the changes that can be made.
This is an excellent time for learning about the arts, or about things which are centered within the arts, especially the fine arts such as painting, sculpture, dance, poetry, drama and the like. You will also be attracted towards those things that provide a cultural learning experience or opportunity for you and this may even include a bit of travel. You may find yourself in a position of "ethical" mediator or instructive counselor that this time. At this time you may feel unusually spiritually inspired about a number of personal "developmental" issues in your life, particularly in respect to the overall direction that your life is going in and in the "existential" meaning that you might find in that direction. This may be an especially good time to engage in a new educational or learning endeavor that is not too demanding on your long-term time. You are likely to feel quite good about your goals now and may have more clarity than usual on those issues. An excellent time to take in a good movie as well.
Involvement's with others at this time are likely to be more intense than usual. It will be important not to let your emotions override your reasoning power at this time - if you begin to feel real emotional intensity that causes you discomfort to the point of wanting to make drastic and compulsive changes to your social life or in respect to a particular relationship, then take a bit of time to think before you act. In the financial department it would be wise to take a second look at what you might spend your money on - make sure the object that you are thinking about buying is truly worth the expenditure.
This will likely be a good time for relationships in general and for intimate relationships in particular - things are very likely to be in a real state of harmony between you and those with whom you are in close contact. This is a good time to reach an agreement with another and to engage in compromise that allows both yourself and another to mutually benefit from your particular relationship at present. You tend to look at the world in positive terms now and you may find yourself more attracted to the good that you see, perhaps more easily now, in others - a good time for socializing.
Your thoughts and general awareness may shift more to the external, outer world now and that could certainly include a greater awareness of others. Your thoughts are more likely to be in an "objective" mode now and judgments regarding your outer world may come easier now and perhaps more intuitively. You may be significantly more prone to forming agreements, with others now, especially where that may pertain to business interests. This should prove to be a good time for compromise and negotiation and there will likely be more communication with others at present. A close relationship may increase in it's communication aspect. Partnership issues in business or marriage may arise now. This is not a time when thoughts will remain internal to yourself - confidences may be gained at this time.
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.
