In relation to others, you will likely find yourself as quite action oriented now, that is, your mode of relating to others is likely to involve activity as opposed to being just communication-based. What this could equate to is a mutually shared project that could be based on work or it might amount to an avocation or business activity that is common to both of you. It is important, though that you apply moderation though in your endeavors with others as your drives in relation to partners could be significantly more aggressive now, and without some measure of grace, could cause offense or even direct antagonism and conflict. Try to avoid impulsive and aggressive behavior in relation to others unless the situation is one that requires a "defense." It would be a good idea to exercise as much patience as you can in relation to any intimate partners in your life as there may be a tendency towards impatience and argument. Sales persons may appear in your life in a manner that becomes a concern as the aggression is likely to be experienced both ways, that is, someone may act in an aggressive manner towards you and try to get you to conform to his or her will, with their best interests intended, rather than your own best interests - be careful in respect to anything that anyone has to sell (to you).
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 critcal 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.
This would be a good time in which to make a conscious, extra, effort towards being patience and cooperative in respect to family members - that may counterbalance any tendencies to the contrary. You should also watch for any self-centered impulses that you might subconsciously be manifesting, now, in relation to family members. This would be a good time for rigorous work around your residence, especially work that may involve using a good degree of physical effort. You may find yourself going to bed rather later than usual and that may be due to your feeling a bit restless at night - as a remedy, you might consider doing some physical exercise before retiring in order to dissipate any tensions or anxiety that might keep your mind from relaxing sufficiently.
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 may be a period in which you feel rather restless physically - for that reason alone it might be a good thing to exercise now, that is to curb the type of energy that you may feel, especially in consideration of the fact that feeling compelled or driven to do something, just on the basis of temporary drives, can lead to erratic and impulsive decisions. Often a good counteractive influence in relation to impulsiveness, or a tendency towards being headstrong, is to simply relax your nervous and muscular systems. There may be a bit of a tendency now to spend more money than you have to spend - try to think carefully before you go with your financial impulses now - you may want to acquire different things more intensely that usual. Being aware of your temperament and slightly increased disposition towards agitation may help you to avoid getting into arguments with others, due to your feeling easily agitated. This is not a "negative" or "destructive" period but there is a need to use your mind to balance your energy-based impulses. It is a time in which you should be careful as to how you are applying yourself and also as to how you use your personal resources and, again, that includes spending patterns.
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.
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.
Responsibilities may be pressing at this time and will likely not allow you as much freedom as you would like to have. This may not be the best time for social engagements - it's more likely that your investments of time would bear better fruit if they were put into physical and business work - circumstances will likely support that. But even if there is no one in your life who is trying to restrict or even frustrate you then it is indicated, at this time, that patience is still, now, very much a requirement. You will probably have the general feeling of wanting to be alone, at least at times, more than as would typically and you may even feel like socially retreating or withdrawing. These are not necessarily negative nor over-riding influences but just part of the scenario at present.
At this time you may not feel at all inclined towards retreating or withdrawing in respect to the "outer world." In fact you may find yourself to be significantly "outward bound" and therein in a relatively restless and perhaps even unsettled frame of mind and attitude due to your exploratory, adventurous spirit currently. There may certainly be a strong and dynamic period of mobility now which may even give rise to a short period of travel which may include a trip of considerable distance. This is also a period in which you may learn some practical, working skills which may quickly manifest into applied action regarding same. Legal conflicts or disputes may arise at this time - if so, it would be best not to act in too aggressive manner or in a manner which would be impulsive and rash, which action may end up causing you to "shoot yourself in the foot," so to speak. As well you may find yourself becoming involved in philosophical or moral disputes and may therein feel that you are forced to defend your values or beliefs - again, it would be advisable to avoid excess in the vehemence of what you express - try to use as much grace as you can without compromising your personal values - remember that courage of conviction does not necessarily equate to an aggressive defence.
This may be a time of rather intense, short term changes or adjustments for you. You will likely feel an unusual amount of intensity at this time. The important thing to keep in mind is that without change we cannot bring in new and often valuable circumstances or experiences into our lives. Focusing now only on what you presently have may create a desire to cling to old and familiar situations that may give a temporary notion of comfort but do not allow you to fully open up to new possibilities in the very near future. Fear of change or of losing what you are familiar with could become a bit of a problem if the situation demands change for the better. It is advisable to make an extra effort to apply reason at this time, especially where your mind helps you to transcend current emotions that are not fully supportive of your personal development. Be courageous and open to constructive change now. Looking beyond the moment to the new possibilities that change promises may help you to better adapt and accept any transformations that seem to be pressing now.
