Strong forces may bring a slow but profound change. There often is an intense pressure that can cause you to realign your priorities not always according to your own wishes. If you are indifferent to a defined objective, this cycle can help you to focus unambiguously on what must be done. When you are absolutely committed to a goal, this can give you the stamina and perseverance to overcome any resistance. Any weaknesses in the structures that you have created, however, may become undeniably obvious.
Initiating strategies to reorganize can be very important since circumstances should make you keenly aware of whatever is out of place. The decisions that you make now can have lasting consequences that likely are difficult to reverse. Neglecting the important readjustments that this period sometimes demands can reinforce past and ineffective patterns and probably assures their continuance for an extended time. Taking the lead to begin eliminating unnecessary or unwanted elements can clear away impediments to achieving what you desire.
Typically this period compels you to strip away all that is unnecessary so that you are left with only the essentials. Whatever is not working well, it may stop now, and you often have no choice but to discard previously supportive influences that no longer are useful. Because efficiency is an aim of this cycle, you can experience anxiety when you hold on tightly to what no longer serves a constructive purpose. Sometimes situations may coerce you to confront your fears of letting go of dependencies, even when they run counter to your best interests. Being attached only because something is familiar may cause you problems now if it lacks real substance.
This process is all about fundamentals and forcing you to reduce certain areas of your life to a minimum. If you are accustomed to a wide range of options, this tends to narrow them considerably. While losses can occur now, they usually help you to recover what really matters. You can become much more grounded through meaningful pursuits or inquiries, ultimately providing a lasting security. This cycle assists in strengthening you despite events that can expose your shortcomings. Taking charge of your life is available to you. Although you may have trouble with authorities, they can prompt you to assume greater command wherever you are able. Your own leadership may be severely questioned so that you can redefine your role in order to be significantly more effective and powerful.
