Unusual opportunities may appear during this period, and you can benefit from taking advantage of them. Although you can gain in unexpected ways now, there is a tendency to lose your perspective suddenly and perhaps miss the point that you are trying to grasp. Occasionally this cycle brings an abrupt shift that is a challenge to handle. Despite the discomfort, it is likely that whatever comes your way at this time becomes an advantage in the long run. Learning to trust in the overall pattern of your life is available now where you take a longer-term view rather than maintaining a narrow focus.
Situations may arise demanding your inclusion of more than is your custom. This may mean dealing with people who are outside your normal circle of acquaintances and seem oddly different. Or it is possible that your beliefs receive a shock from a new idea or a surprising disclosure. Typically, the ease of your existence is upended periodically and often when you least expect it. One of the lessons here is to embrace the unforeseen, even if it appears to throw you off balance. While discontinuity is usually present, it can offer a welcome change of pace to your everyday life. Not only can it help you to stay alert, but it also can facilitate a different set of viewpoints that may allow for greater understanding.
Tremendous progress can occur in certain areas during this interval since the direction of movement is forward and often at a very rapid rate. The difficulty is that you can go too fast so that you overlook key factors. Occasionally you can take off on a tangent that puts you at odds with others and conventional wisdom. This is a time for exploring uncharted waters, however, and you may have an urge to pursue unusual interests that teach you more than you might anticipate. Travel often occurs during this interval, and while it can prove enlightening, it can take you to places that are disruptive in some way.
If you are restless by nature, this period tends to enhance that quality immeasurably where any restriction seems intolerable. To the extent that you prefer the reliability of what you know, you likely have trouble with the unpredictable elements that should arise. The tendency during this cycle is to make a sudden decision without due consideration, yet you may miss an opportunity if you hesitate. The key is to know when to take a risk and when to avoid it. That can come from stepping back and objectively looking at your options while removing your subjective bias as much as possible.
