Although the effects of this cycle are not always apparent, when they do manifest, they can be very strong. This typically is a time for a complete change in certain areas of your life where you can unleash your independence. Generally what you start now can usher in a new direction that can carry you for a long time. To the extent that you have wanted to do something different, this often provides the motivation to break out. If you ordinarily prefer following the crowd, you may experience an urge to go forcibly against the prevailing trend even if it is in a small way.
Powerful influences may produce unpredictable events that have a significant impact upon you. There is a discontinuity that exists now that can be very upsetting if you are used to dependability. It is not that things necessarily fall apart, but you may experience surprises that can reorient you quickly. If you are comfortable with the unexpected, you may enjoy the volatility that can manifest. Still this period can force you to make adjustments that are extreme no matter what your bias. You may have to contend with compelling drives that surface and then disappear as quickly as they come. Just as you start something that really seems meaningful, it may lose its hold, or it may be taken away.
One purpose of this process is to learn to enjoy the intensity of the moment while not becoming attached to it. This way you are not upset when the passion shifts or is gone. Typically, you have very little control over the flow or the order of proceedings here, so resisting the ups and downs that can occur likely increases the severity. Occasionally a loss may bring freedom where giving up someone or something can provide the impetus for an unexpected turn of events. It may not be your choice because circumstances may require you to discard in order to progress freely.
You may experience a drive to investigate the very edges of your world as you usually are unafraid to push the boundaries, although often they get pushed for you instead. It is possible that you demonstrate unique qualities that can be very influential when you allow them to show. You may possess an unusual ability to persevere while being unconventional. Even if you are averse to standing out among others, this period can allow you to reveal your individuality or at least to acknowledge it so that you can initiate steps to manifest it in the future.
