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.
During this time you may center activities around friends. On one hand there may be some construction but the activity will likely, in any case, involve some sort of aggressive action such as with electrical or mechanical work or repairs. Recreational activities may also be stepped up now in association with friends. Any type of associations of which you are either a member or a pending member may come into play or focus now and demand your consideration. This is unlikely a total period of relaxation and withdrawal as the accent is on friends and activities, whether that be recreational or practical and business based, in nature.
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 is a good time for self-analysis, that is, looking into your own motivations on a psychological level, so that you can gain a better understanding of what drives you to seek what you feel driven towards. The more self-understanding at a deep level you gain the more self-control and personal power you gain and the less the chance that adjustments, as you live your life, will be needed later. In other words, if you really have an insight into what you are aiming for, is clearly understood by yourself, then it is far more likely that your ultimate experiences will be meet as "one" with your expectations. This is a good time to clear up nagging responsibilities and to set your life's agenda in order and to straighten out and clarify records and schedules that add order to your life and support personal responsibility. This may be a good time to deal with and take care of any paperwork regarding business matters, such as invoice payments and the like. You may be more prone to attend to small things, mundane issues and finer details of the general business of your life now and you may also find yourself, in addition to setting your personal business affairs in order, doing a fair amount of cleaning and tidying-up of your personal environments. If you find yourself a feeling a little more anxious and tending towards worry or even feeling a little compulsive now then it may be that exercise will help to "smooth out" your nervous and muscle systems and help you to relax more. But it might also be the case that the anxiety is being generated because your preconscious mind is telling you to attend to practical matters now that you may be somewhat neglectful of or even ignoring.
The romantic department of your life will likely bring the question of human motivation to the forefront - it may be that someone enters the scene now who may have hidden motives and who's agenda is other than what he or she is indicating to you - if someone is there now who seems to want to influence you about choices or, worse, seems to want to dictate or even manipulate you then it might be advisable to deliberate over this person's intensions on the romantic level and as to why he or she is trying to have an impact on you. Be careful of individuals who come across as having a powerful personality.
At this time it would be best to be very careful in respect to the manner in which you relate to others as you go about your daily practical business and as you are in the process of taking care of mundane responsibilities, especially at your place of work. Minding your own business may, quite simply, be the best personal policy at this time. Others may be somewhat more predisposed towards argument and strife in relation to you now and it would not be advisable to give them something to go on. You may have a tendency, at this time, to be more picky than usual about what you do in your work and what others do in their work associated with yourself - it may advisable to add an extra measure of tolerance and compromise. This is a good time to concern yourself with detail but try to avoid being aggressively critical in your perceptions of other's (small-scale) imperfections.
In the romantic context of your life you may find yourself attracting rather forward or even aggressive individuals who's agenda is more likely to be self-serving than not. It is not advisable to try to engage in "amorous" behavior with anyone new to your life now as you are likely to experience a lack of grace and harmony which would otherwise be necessary for things to go well in that area of your life. What is recommended at this time is to engage in recreational activity where you get a chance to become involved in rigorous physical exertion and certainly that would include outdoor activities, such as hiking, skiing, tennis and the like. Creative projects that ask for your physical exertion are also favored now, such as home or property improvement projects. Be careful to avoid letting your pride or vanity get the best of you now, a good dose of counteractive humility, that is, a humble spirit, is recommended.
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.
Your "frame of reference" for your thinking at this time may be your "ideals," plain and simple, and thus you may be less inclined to compromise those ideals in the face of external social pressures. In terms of decision making though you may find yourself subject to rapid changes of mind at this time and so your ideals may serve as the measuring rod. You are likely to be more mentally clear currently and thus less affected emotionally in relation to thoughts or decisions that may require logic, regardless of feelings attached to same. Your communication is likely to be more rapid than typically and that may be reflected in the rapidity of you or your friend's mutually shared speech with each other. In fact this may be a period in which you are significantly more inclined to communicate with friends. Others may see you as being or coming across as more emotionally detached at present. You may even seem to be or feel to be oddly alienated or disconnected from others now despite substantial communications.
Your life may center around your preferred and idealized life situations and circumstances at this time. You may find yourself engaging more in those things that you want to do as opposed to those things that you have to do and that certainly could include your social life as well as your ideal activities such as would center around avocations and hobbies. Friendships may may come into focus more now as well as the basis for relating to others now is more in accordance with desirable, as opposed to "compulsory," relationships, such as would be the case in a workplace setting. At this time it would be wise to avoid taking any extreme positions in your activities or communications as you may be overly independent or self-willed - best to remain open to compromising with others.
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.
