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 may find yourself inclined towards learning that really empowers you in your daily life. In other words the learning that you do now is not likely just "academic" and for interest only. You may find yourself, at this time, more attracted to business and technology than usual. During this time you may find yourself more inclined towards travel than usual and you may even find that this urge becomes a little complusive. Essentially you will probably have a strong underlying urge now to expand your knowledge base - you may also become more attracted to foreign cultures at this time.
This is a time during which you may experience difficulty in respect to group situations or group involvement. It would be wise to be careful not to get too involved with others now such that you cannot extricate yourself later without experiencing personal loss. In other words it would be particularly advisable to avoid any types of social entanglement currently and that of course includes overly committing yourself in respect to others drives or projects now. Obviously this certainly might include investments of any type, including finances, energy and time. Ironically this is a good time for business if you have a significant degree of separation from others, including partners, with whom you are doing business - in other words boundaries are important now, as well as maintaining a measure of independence. On a more subtle level it would also be in your best interests to be very careful in terms of physical intimacy or "expression" currently as that as well is a type of investment where you may feel one way or another more a part of another's world or be led to feel that way or responsible for same unless you indicate that you are less inclined to becoming an "us" in contrast to just being "you and me," as one might interpret the physical expressions or involvement - so therein be careful of the signals that you send so that they are not misinterpreted and, as well, be careful of your or another’s passionate impulses for which you might choose not to be responsible. On an overall level this time in your life may include some difficult or challenging changes - you may be asked to let go of something that you are trying to hold on to. Understanding that everything changes sooner or later and being willing to transcend your own self-centered interests may be significantly helpful now.
This is a time when you will likely find yourself to be more wound up, intense, willful and perhaps impatient in relation to getting what you want. Be careful in respect to not being as tolerant as you ought to be or would be normally. You are also likely to attract and possibly make new friends at this time but they, as well, may be in the same mode of intensity and willfulness as yourself - in fact that may be the common ground in the mutual attraction. Don't allow any highly driven "friend" to spur you on to act impulsively. Others may find you to be somewhat aloof or unusually detached emotionally at this time - best to be aware of the degree of your emotional expression at this time - or the lack of it. This would otherwise be a good time to engage or begin what you might see as your "ideal" activities or hobbies.
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 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.
This will likely be a time of increased self-confidence and strength of self-expression. You will likely project your personality more dramatically than usual. You may find yourself attracting more attention than usual and it would be wise to check yourself now for increased vanity and competitiveness - keep in mind that humility is a virtue if you find yourself tempted to blow your own horn now. This is a time when you will be more inclined towards seeking entertainment and pleasurable pursuits and you will likely feel more romantic than typically. You may have a stronger and more intense interest in the arts now - this would be a good time for seeing a movie or reading a novel. Be careful not to take too many risks now as there may be a strong inclination to gamble with things of value. Recreational pursuits may be indulged in to a greater degree now, than usual.
At this time the foundational aspect of your life will play a major role and will likely either be at the forefront of your mind or be intuitively drawing on your awareness. Your home and family will take on a major role and gain the focus of your attention. Your focus may be taken up with home improvement or interior and exterior decorating now. Activities such as painting, buying new furniture or home renovation in general may kick into play now. Interaction and identification with family members may also take on a central role in your life currently. More extensively, identity with your community may now become important to you, including your residential environment in general, in fact some under this influence may begin to consider a residential move. All of these issues may significantly impact on or be quite tied up with your sense of emotional security and certainly, if anything, you will find yourself to be more sensitive now, especially in respect to those issues that you directly or indirectly identify as being the basis of your existence or roots. You may be more in touch with your preconscious mind now and for that reason your dreams may have a seemingly greater impact on you at this time - if so, be mindful of the content of those dreams as there may be an important message there.
The whole context of communications, in your day-to-day experiences may begin to feel circumstantially restricted and limited. But what might seem to be a handicap now will actually bring you into a lifestyle mode that you may later appreciate as being a type of leverage. Now is the time to really focus and concentrate on just what is essential as far as your day-to-day lifestyle and communications are concerned. In other words, you may become very busy in terms of your daily responsibilities and thus any indulgences in unneeded, impractical communications with others would really limit the time and energy that you would have that would otherwise go into getting more important things done. Your current daily responsibilities may seem quite pressing so it is important that you prioritize now. There may be a slight tendency for your to think negatively now and to conclude too often that things won't work out but instead of using that doubtful thinking to come to a less than positive conclusion of what may unfold it is advisable that you apply practical thought to the reality that is, as opposed to the imagined scenarios that you think might be. Thinking that is based on the current facts of your real-life situation can be helpful in relation to your being assured that what you connect with now is substantial and real. The paradox is that this may lead towards greater happiness whereas imaginative or wishful thinking might just lead to "disintegration" or illusion.
At this time you may find yourself focusing on your personal resources now more than usual. Of coarse, the most general and direct resource is often considered to be your financial assets, in the most simple terms, your money. It may be a good idea now, though, to take stock of the more subtle aspects of your resources and as to how that source of wealth might generate a healthier or improved financial picture for yourself. It might be a good idea to go beyond or deeper than your direct and immediate assets such as home, automobile and bank account and rather look at what you possess as your natural talents. If you are not already using and applying those things of value and getting a return on that directly or indirectly this might be a very good time now to reassess as to what you can do with what you have got, that is, as your most personal resource, which is your abilities and talents, especially in the sense that what you have got, you have got to give and what you have to give, you will be given a fair return on, by the just hand of life. Keep in mind that a reward implies a reaction to an initial action and that initial action can be based on you're simply giving what you have got to give, whether that be of the physical or metaphysical.
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.
This is a time in your life in which the circumstances and situations that you find yourself in will vary considerably from day to day, perhaps so much so, at times, that you will feel like you are playing a game of chess with life. It is important to keep in mind now, that major plans might have to be suspended until the pattern of your life becomes more stable and predictable. Your use of electronic equipment for communications purposes is quite likely to increase at this time - that is, you may find a greater need or use of things like faxes, e-mail, pagers, voice mail etc.. It is also important that you have some method or technique for relaxing your nerves and maximizing tranquility in your busy, on-the-go type of lifestyle at present.
