A sudden call to power can occur, and there typically is a quality of unpredictable strength that pervades this cycle. You may demonstrate an unequivocal will in breaking through previous barriers. At the same time, you may encounter resistance that you cannot tolerate, and you may press the attack using innovative tactics to reach your ends. Because of the inherent inconsistency, it often is difficult to sustain your efforts, and whatever you engage likely requires exceptional output on your part. While you are capable of unusual feats, they may prove very taxing.
Unexpected depletion of resources may come from expending so much energy to uphold a position or from seeking an objective without sufficient rest. Unforeseen losses can happen now although whatever is taken away usually is necessary, even if not immediately apparent. The impact of this cycle is long-term, and generally whatever goes out, something else will come to take its place if not now then later. Conditions may compel you to make certain changes during this period that can introduce a whole new set of elements that tend to revitalize you while allowing you to eliminate what is inessential or even what may be diminishing your influence.
Although a compelling interest can become ignited now, you may find its quest disturbed periodically despite your most unwavering intentions. One of the lessons here is the importance of interruptions no matter how consuming the passion. Disconnecting, especially from an obsessive pursuit, allows time to get away for awhile and to gain a better perspective so that you can return refreshed and clear. Events during this cycle may bring fixated issues to light, and may motivate or even require you to change what may have an unyielding hold. Conditions favor the disruption of any intense pattern by creating enough space to loosen the grip.
You may have to deal with circumstances that force a sudden turn of well entrenched elements of your life. Resistance to what is different and original may emerge, particularly when defending what you consider valuable or irrevocable. Fear of the future may cause you to become uncompromising over certain issues since the unknown can be unsettling now. One purpose of this period is to stimulate an investigation beyond appearances to the core of matters of ultimate concern. In doing this, you can realize greater meaning to your life and free whatever has been deeply rooted to grow upward.
