You have the opportunity to distinguish the difference between feelings that are real and those that are false so that you can become more assured about what your true needs are. While we all tend to live our lives supporting certain half-truths or avoiding facing certain realities, you can easily assess what works emotionally and what doesn?t now. You can look at yourself and accept what you feel and what you don?t.
This is an excellent time to secure your life, not only in making your home or living situation more stable but also to make you personally feel more attached. This may be to your family, especially if there are difficulties. You tend to see those who are closest to you more realistically, and you often are more willing to accept responsibility for any shortcomings that exist with others and with yourself. Indeed this cycle?s benefit of achieving an enduring accord with close friends generally comes when you meet them halfway.
Steadiness may replace uncertainty in your personal life now and that may provide enough satisfaction for you during this cycle. However, if you make an effort to face your feelings, especially those that are raw, vulnerable, or otherwise unpleasant you can begin to really see the emotional issues that have a long past and may hinder you from connecting to life fully. Like all of us you likely hold within yourself scars and wounds that color your responses and can interfere with your interaction with someone even when harmony seemingly exists. This period affords you an easier time to look at the conditions that underlie your behavior and to choose how you want to feel. A lifetime of carrying emotional baggage naturally won?t dissipate in a few months, but this cycle repeats every seven years allowing you regular opportunities to ease any pain.
One potential reward of this period is to learn how to take better care of yourself and to appreciate those who nurture you now and who have done so throughout your life. You can become more self-sufficient by choice rather than by force of circumstance, which can prepare you to handle more easily future occurrences that require you to become self-reliant. The attention that you turn inwardly can bring you greater peace and can allow you to meet the needs of others gladly.
