While this period can indicate that you slow down in certain areas of your life, you likely benefit from measured pace rather than breakneck speed. Generally, you approach important issues that affect your identity with greater care now, and you have the ability to distinguish what matters for you from what appears as a passing interest. You have an opportunity to become more certain about your direction in life and the goals that you wish to pursue. Deep reflection on what you want to express to the world can bring answers, and although this usually is not a time to take action, decisions that you make now on objectives you want to achieve in the future can begin a process that unfolds on its own.
You have the ability during this cycle to accept life for what it is, which allows you not to rush things. By slowing down you can recognize more easily when to move ahead, to standstill, or to move backwards. This is not necessarily a period of rest since you can apply yourself with great concentration on a particular task with good results. Yet, it is an excellent time to take stock of your direction in life because you tend to see things in context better than before. Being more deliberate can assist you to focus on details that you ordinarily might miss, details that can make a significant difference.
You seem to know what obligations are worth meeting. Those duties that you already perform can seem less of a chore now and more of an opportunity to grow or to learn. It is possible that a leadership position is available for you, although you may doubt your credentials or capability to carry out the assignment. Yet, by taking on greater responsibilities you tend to gain more confidence, as your efforts usually get rewarded. If you fear making an important decision, know that you generally make wise choices now and taking a calculated risk where the odds are in your favor will usually work to your advantage.
Organizing your priorities now can make a difference in the future when you may not have the time or the inclination. It also can orient you correctly towards whatever it is that you want to achieve, whatever is that rings true to you. The simple process of separating out, in your world and in your mind, what you like and dislike can cause you to see clearly the next step in your development and at the same time to dispense with all that is unnecessary or not needed. As long as you have a commitment to something, this period likely reinforces that focus. If you don?t have an anchor, use this time to ground yourself to whatever you deem important so that you can move forward assuredly and securely at the appropriate time.
