Obstacles to your development and the goals you seek can emerge during this cycle. People generally, and those in authority particularly, may oppose your will and what you want most. To the extent that you are directionless, this period can impose rigid circumstances to your life that you resist. Moving toward an objective, you tend to experience delays in your progress, or you may have to redirect your efforts into other areas if your aim is sufficiently off the mark. While this period often delivers frustration, it serves to clarify your purpose and to face realistically the consequences of decisions made in the past. By heeding the warnings you can make the necessary adjustments to ensure future success.
At times this interval represents a culmination of what may have begun 14 years ago. You can achieve a position of stature and authority due to wise choices and the ability to handle important duties, so that this can mean the fruition of your efforts to attain certain ends. Even with fulfillment comes greater responsibilities, and whether you experience the best of this time or not, you often have arrived at a crossroads in your life. It may signify a minor turn along your path, or it may indicate a major departure from what you have known. Either way this generally is a time of decision that affects the trajectory you travel.
Although you can make significant choices now, the time for action may occur in the future because your life often slows down even reaching a standstill. The intent is for you to see clearly the steps to take and the missteps perhaps taken. This process takes time to unfold as the recognition usually is not immediate, although occasionally it is so obvious that you do what is necessary. Even so, lessons of this cycle involve patience, acceptance, and perseverance. Instant gratification is unlikely, and any gratification generally requires that you move deliberately and consciously toward your target.
Confidence sometimes meets humility, which ultimately can produce a positive outcome. However, you tend to encounter negative feedback in expressing what you believe is true, thus the possibility of self-doubt. This often makes you averse to risking yourself or to exposing yourself to the criticism of others. If this is your experience, realize that the effect is temporary unless you make it permanent. Also, a reason for this time period is to make you acutely aware of any inadequacies so that you can strengthen yourself wherever needed. Focus on what is most important in your life at this moment; develop it and pursue it. Be patient with yourself, accept the reality that you encounter, and persevere till you arrive at your destination.
