Your mind is likely to be quite active now and that may be due the to internal stimulus of your own body now as your nervous energy is likely to be quite high. Your mind is like a double edged sword right now - that is to say that the potential to get many things accomplished is there due to the abundant mental energy that you have but at the same time there is also more of a tendency now to get distracted by something that is just passing but which nonetheless ends in completely drawing you in and taking you down a path that is quite diverting from what is the regular business or routine of your life. You are also highly prone to talk significantly more than usual as well as to re-think things that you may have thought that you already drawn conclusions on. The important thing now is not to get too caught up in ideas, either through conversation and planning or through endless thinking about things as opposed to doing them. In other words try to take that extra mental energy as fuel for really planting the seeds of thought into the soil of reality by engaging real practical action.
You may find yourself in a brief period of uncertainty about some aspects of your self and your life and if this is the case it likely contains an association with that part of your mind that is not entirely at the "cognitive" level - that level that holds fully conscious awareness and deliberation regarding personal issues in your life. In other words your mind may be influenced by your preconscious now - the level of your mind that precedes the conscious mind. Images, memories, emotionally charged thoughts, perhaps a degree of sadness, fear and confusion may possibly influence your thinking now. But the act of your mind's plummeting the depths at this time may paradoxically bring deeper peace and complacency. The gatekeepers that allow access to that deeper peace may be courage and spiritual strength. You may find "rational" thinking to be a little bit more challenging and you may find that your typically more refined logic alludes you or that you are not at the height of your analytical sharpness. On the other hand your imagination may be quite charged now, that intuition is stronger and that there may be a greater sense of psychic and spiritual attunement. Attempts at compensation now insofar as self-assertion or patterns of aggression in social relations will do more harm than good as this is not a time for personal projection in that what gets projected may have more to do with the historical "shadows" or complexes that do not likely form any permanent part of your relatively more constructive personality. Any confusion or fear that motivates you now may be far more obvious to others than you think. Internal resistance is not necessarily the answer either as attempts to dismiss or repress deeper personal insights now may disallow you the benefit of later clarity and growth. Now is the time for simply lying low, being humble and perhaps more "quiet" than you normally might be - in other words going within yourself may seem quite natural currently as you are likely more introverted than usual. This is a very good time for introspection, meditation, extra sleep and dream content. You may find it quite worthwhile to pay attention to your stronger intuition regarding what's ahead shortly - a period of greater clarity and certainty.
A beneficial interest in health may arise at this time. Ironically that would be quite appropriate as your appetite may pick up now and thus you should be careful not to consume foods at this time that are excessive and really not needed by your body. You are likely to have a constructive attitude now in respect to work and towards getting many practical things done, as well as putting personal things in order. You may very well accomplish many personal tasks and chores now as your physical stamina is "high" and you are more detail oriented in your perception of your environment. If you are currently employed you may find that working conditions change for the better now. You may be a little bit more prone to experience an increase in anxiety or worry now which may be due to your not appreciating the long term goals and overall picture of your life, largely as a result of concentrating and focusing too much on the trees rather than on the overall forest - don't let small things take too much of your attention now, at least not at the price of jeopardizing or sacrificing more distant goals.
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 should prove to be a good period for the foundational aspect of your life, that is, home and family. You are likely to feel quite complacent, emotionally secure and have a general sense of well-being, at this time, at least in relation to the familiar aspects of your life. You will likely enjoy quite deep and peaceful sleep now and you may even receive guidance, pre-consciously, if not consciously understood, through your dreams. You may find that the idea of changing residence may enter your mind at this time. You are likely to find that your home becomes the place of choice for you now, even insofar as entertainment is concerned.
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 is a period in which you will likely be focused on your material assets and values and there may be very good reason for you to do so as you will likely experience this present period as being one of financial benefit. This may also be an excellent period for acquiring material things that are purchased for significantly less than what they are worth. During this time, it might be a good thing to draw limitations on what you eat, as your appetite may be such that you could take in an excess of food, or junk food, that you simply don't need, that is, you may be a little more prone, than usual, to gaining weight now.
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.
During this period it is likely that you may experience a little confusion about the direction that your life is headed in. This is likely just a time when you will being going inward, into the deeper part of your mind, to find what it is that your heart, soul and spirit would really like to attain or acquire. There may be some initial confusion, especially regarding your sense of direction, because of old internal frames of reference that no longer have as much meaning or significance as they once had. When the fog lifts you may very well find that your goals have changed in some aspect or another or that they really have changed entirely. This may be a more spiritual time in your life and you may find yourself a little more withdrawn, introspective and meditative now. Your dreams may become more powerful in their impact on your mind now and it may be an important thing to make note of what they are trying to tell you.
Even though your thinking may be very clear and practical at times now it, is not likely to be consistently at it's clearest at this time - you may find that your imagination, at certain times, is more active and that, as well, as your thought may contain an unusual degree of mental imagery. What you are seeing on the inside may distract or cloud your thinking to some degree, at least in respect to more logical and practical matters. On the other hand, this is quite likely a good period to get into touch with and refine your rapport with your own intuitions and the general notions of where you are headed, on an overall level, as your thinking is apt to be more on the emotional and spiritual level now and this may allow you to get a deeper sense of what you really want to do with your life. In short, this may be an easier time for you to deal with the forest than the trees, but try to be careful not to overlook important details.
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.
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.
