This period often provides a mental spark that can sharpen your ability to think. Your mind can work quickly so you tend to learn more easily although occasionally the effect of processes speeding up is a short-circuiting that can cause nervousness and irritability. Generally, though, this cycle offers clarity of thought, which can allow you to solve problems that before seemed without answers. You have the capacity to apply innovative approaches to common or long-standing issues that can produce effective results. Rarely do you get stuck, and if you do, you usually devise a way to press forward.
You tend to experience a heightened restlessness now making it difficult to stay still. Many short trips may have you on the go, and you occasionally discover new and unusual places that you have not visited before. Staying busy is a near certainty now, but unless you have a focus, you can become like a pinball bouncing from one activity to another without ever really slowing down. Exhaustion can occur, especially mental fatigue, so it is important to take the time to rest and to recharge. Not only does physical activity often increase, but your restless mind can take you where you have not been previously. While this generally means new insights, it can make you a bit crazy, since your thoughts often go much faster than you can articulate them. Flashes of brilliance can fade as quickly as they appear.
Interactions can create interest during this period. You generally say what is on your mind, and sometimes you surprise others with your unexpected responses. You are more likely to confront people directly as keeping quiet is almost impossible, especially if you take offense. You can clear the air when necessary, and this can bring certain situations into the proper perspective where the guidelines are well defined. It is possible that you encounter people whose speech or writing has a strong impact upon you. Unusual communications can effect you in unforeseen ways where you may have to change your approach or direction in midstream.
One manifestation of this cycle is playfulness. You can enjoy the freedom that comes from losing track of time and by fully being in the moment with something that is fun rather than a burden. You tend to take life a little less seriously which can open you to the whimsy that exists amidst the multitude of responsibilities. While you can appear as superficial or uncaring, taking a break from the inexorable demands of the world can help balance your existence and make you better prepared to handle whatever comes your way.
