A rebellious streak may emerge during this cycle where you find certain limitations intolerable. If you have labored under tightly controlled conditions, you may reject them completely now. You tend to take steps to liberate yourself wherever you perceive confinement since you often need freedom no matter the cost. Even if your life is unrestricted, you still may seek greater independence and you likely express yourself unpredictably and unconventionally, at times. This interval sometimes indicates a strong urge to separate yourself from others. On the one hand, this may mean that you seek to demonstrate your uniqueness and individuality. However, it can reveal an uncompromising spirit and a certainty of being right.
You may experience from time to time unusual events that can alter your perception of yourself. It may be occurrences that are different from your usual expectations, or it may be interactions with people who challenge you with a surprising point of view. If you don?t know yourself very well, and even if you do, you can have startling self-discoveries that can turn your life upside down. While this sometimes is a shock, it can awaken you to certain truths about yourself that help to define clearly your path in life. This is an excellent time to see yourself for who you are and to open new doors that further your development.
This period can bring significant strain as you may have difficulty adjusting to changing conditions. You likely find life less reliable than usual, and stability may turn into volatility. Trying to maintain the status quo is probably unachievable for now, and you may occasionally come unglued adjusting to unfamiliar pressures. Stepping outside of yourself is an appropriate consequence of this cycle since you may find your old ways no longer have an appeal, especially if your heart is not in them. The less you resist the inconsistencies and oddities that can appear, the easier it should be to handle any situation or person.
It is possible the more you try to fulfill expectations that are in some way false, the more likely you will, at some point, rebel. However, pursuing independence as a need to get away from what displeases you can cause rifts in relationships and often isolates you from others. The key to success now is to differentiate between what is true and what you believe is right. To defend yourself or to oppose others so as not to lose face ultimately may provide little reward. Expressing the truth of the matter, you likely have a positive impact and your way usually is clear.
