Pressure to examine the basis of particular areas of your life may expose your weaknesses as well as your strengths. One purpose of this period is to probe below the surface to the core of what supports you. If you are well grounded, you likely find this time helps to reinforce those necessary structures as well to point out existing problems to be addressed. To the extent that what you depend upon is unstable, you likely have to purge inappropriate elements in order to fortify your position.
How you define yourself in the world may become reshaped during this period as your status may be challenged. The goals that you seek sometimes come under intense scrutiny, and if found inadequate, you probably are forced to make significant changes. Although major readjustments are possible now, they serve to refocus you on the important things of life if you have lost touch. Even when you are on course, this period can require you to achieve greater efficiency by eliminating extraneous steps. Facing loss is a possibility as this process usually seeks to strip away the inessential so that what?s left is what matters. At first, you may not see the benefits of relinquishment, especially of what has been reliable or familiar; resistance is a natural response.
Typically the forces that are at work here are inexorable so that fighting them is usually futile. Not that you must surrender, but you do best when you cease trying to alter an outcome or to avoid consequences. Generally, the reality of a situation is plain and direct. Much of what transpires here is the result of previous actions that you must accommodate. At the same time, the decisions you make can have enduring effects, which is another reason to recognize the obvious and choose according to need rather than want. Attempting to exercise extreme control in order to maintain what you desire likely will prove unsuccessful since you usually are up against significant odds.
All is not lost. In fact, what you uncover here should prove invaluable and ultimately deepen your security even though this cycle can make you less stable than before. Because of the adversity that you sometimes face, you can tap into a steadfast determination that allows you to overcome any obstacle. You can anchor your ambitions and access the drive to finish whatever you start. Sheer effort directed appropriately for what is in your best interest can reap substantial achievements at this time or clear the way for completion at a later date. While this period can tear down what you have constructed, it can empower you to rebuild stronger, more enduring forms that gain you respect and stature.
