A test of your will may characterize this period. This often is a significant time in your life where you may be blocked in your attempts to advance. Whether you are aggressive by nature or not, you likely make strong efforts to defend your principles and to advocate yourself. You can overcome resistance through perseverance, and you usually won?t take ?no? for an answer. Such persistence can ultimately allow you to triumph, although you may lose sight of other options in your desire to prove that you are right. Therefore it is important to pursue what really matters to you, not out of ego satisfaction, but from the core of your being. Otherwise, you may find any victory less than fulfilling.
It is possible that you experience powers larger than yourself that tend to dominate you and make it difficult for your light to shine. You may struggle at times to assert your individuality, but ultimately the circumstances can empower you. A key theme for this cycle is the likelihood for a fundamental change in yourself, especially if you have lost sight of your identity or if adjustments are required to the purpose that guides you. However, you may resist the inexorable forces that now may influence your life, which can make this period more difficult. The more that you can accept that this is potentially the beginning of a new phase for you, the easier it is to acknowledge the probable end to something old or outmoded.
You may seek greater control in all that you and others do, and you may seem overbearing as you can insist on your way or no way. The strength of your convictions generally is impressive, although they may narrow your focus to such an extent that you are oblivious to the concerns of those around you. Certainly, you are a very capable leader at this time, and you typically know what is right, or at least you are convinced that you do. You sometimes are intolerant of any interference to your command, however, as you may prefer unquestioned allegiance. If your intent is pure and you are true to yourself as well as others, you can have a significant and compelling impact.
Self-expression typically is strengthened during this period. Whatever it is that you love to do, you tend to do with great passion now. You generally don?t hold yourself back when your heart is in it, but when it is not, you usually have no interest at all. It is unlikely that you can remain unbiased during this interval, and you may promote extreme positions. You may push yourself or be pushed to your limits. If you really know what fulfills you, you may use this time to lock in on it, and if you don?t, take advantage of situations to uncover it.
