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.
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.
At this time you may feel tested in your relationships, both with others in general and more in particular, with individuals with who you form interpersonal relationships. This reference, by way of contrast, does not include your experience now with "ideas" or with your experiences with "things' (objects.) Rather it is people interaction now that may prove to be the more challenging part of your life. And we can narrow this down, not so much to group interaction but rather to individuals in your life who may be either close to you or who you must interact with now on some level of significance such as with a business partner or a professional consultant, for example. It is doubtful that the one-on-one relationships that you experience now will be of the type that is light and dynamic in nature as the type of interaction that you experience now may have more of a serious or strong practical component and may involve restrictions and your own personal frustrations regarding same. You may find yourself now focusing on the balance involved in the relationship/s in the "give and take" aspect - fairness may be brought into question and this may be especially the case in respect to individuals with whom you share a valued resource asset or active project. Responsibilities on both sides or on one side may become an issue, especially where "partnerships" have been established. As well marital partnership may become a concern in terms of the interaction of the individual partners and the responsibilities that lie therein. Any type of agreements that you have with another individual currently, especially contractual agreements, should involve your utmost scrutiny as well as honor on both sides - the point being that there may be a need, perhaps not easily established, for a balanced give and take.
This may be a time for limiting or restricting your diet, in other words avoiding any unneeded excesses that do not promote your health. If you find yourself becoming physically tense at this time then it may be advisable to engage in stretching exercises like yoga or even moderate weight-training which may help to stretch your muscles. If you find yourself plagued by mundane responsibilities now that are aggravating you from the back of your mind or generating passing moments of anxiety then there is probably only one true solution - take care of them. This is a very good time indeed for taking practical action in respect to little mundane responsibilities and nagging chores that need attending to. This is a time when you may really benefit from putting things in order and getting personally organized. When you communicate with others now it may be a good thing to sort of monitor yourself as you may be a little more critical and less tolerant than usual - you might inadvertently come across negatively at times without intending to do so, so it might be a good time to practice an extra measure of empathy and "liberality" in relation to others. This is probably not a good time to try to get others to do your work for you. In general - perhaps a time to keep your head down, mind your own business, attend to your practical work and plow ahead.
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.
The foundational aspects of your life may require attention now - that is, that area of your life that includes your sense of community and belonging, most centrally experienced through family and home or "residence." Renovation or repair work in respect to your residence may be required now. There may be a need to take a look at some "structural" issues in respect to your home, such as the roof, walls, drainage, doors and the like. Issues centered within and revolving around the family may become more apparent than usual now, especially in respect to your father. In any case there may be some challenges in relation to your family where responsibilities should be carefully considered, that is in contrast to engaging in any impulsive action that might lead to greater restrictions later. You may feel like you have a personal quest to establish security and stability now, especially in respect to your family and community - a sense of "belonging" may be quite important to you at this time. It would be wise to be realistic regarding any rent or mortgage issues now - exercising responsibility may keep the "control" in your own hands. If you are having difficulties with sleep or disquieting dreams it might be best to try some mild exercise prior to going to bed.
This is a time in which you may find yourself a little more predisposed towards argument or to reacting to critical remarks made by others - it may have a little to do with the way your mind is working at present, that is, your mind may be more prone, than usual, to be a little more aggressive and rigorous. Also you may simply be attracting those, now, who seem to communicate in an aggressive, combative or competitive manner. It might be best, at this time, to focus on things that have more of a neutral nature such as with technical things or simple, practical work that you can do independently. Keeping busy, doing constructive things and tending just to your own business will likely allow you to avoid getting involved in petty disagreements and disputes.
This would be a good period in which to be conservative in respect to your spending patterns - spending more than you really have to spend could become a significant problem now. It would also be an appropriate time to take account of your personal assets so that you get a clear and certain picture of the state of your personal finances and resources in general - if that view is not already intact. Financial restructuring could become a reality at this time. It may be important to relax your muscular system at this time by engaging in moderate anaerobic exercise.
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.
The central focus of your life, at this time, is likely to be on practical work and mundane responsibilities, especially in regard to putting your affairs in order, such as in sorting out your finances and in listing the day-to-day priorities in your life. Attending to things that must be done, regardless of whether or not the activities themselves are "boring" or "unstimulating" will be important now. Try not to leave any responsibilities undone, unfinished or at least unaccounted for now as you may find yourself having to pay a heavier price later for neglecting those things than you would as compared to taking care of them at present.
