Depending how rigid you are in particular situations may determine how well you handle the unexpected twists and turns that can occur. If you are very set in your ways, unwelcome surprises can surface and upset what before seemed so reliable. If you are ready for something different or a break from the routine, this period may provide just that. While you may need to make some readjustments in your life now, you may find them difficult to accomplish. There is a tendency for this cycle to pressure wherever you have the most resistance and wherever you hold on the tightest.
Usually the stress that you may experience during this time is intermittent, but it can flare up acutely forcing you to come to terms with unforeseen elements. It is possible that you may consider making significant changes at this time either by preference or due to circumstance. Although conditions may warrant a sudden shift, the steps that you must take are not always easy, and they tend to go against your grain or an established pattern. Sometimes you have to make a choice between the past and the future and between new horizons and continuing obligations that bind you. This interval should make it clear where you are stuck as well as the value of maintaining what should endure.
Responsibility for something or someone unconventional may cause you to deal with those that defy order or defined rules. By having your authority tested, you can learn how to better manage what is outside your level of expertise, and in rising to the challenge, you can open wherever you are closed. Occasionally you may give or follow unpredictable commands that may appear out of character. You may have to contend with discontinuity since there typically is a sporadic disturbance to expectations that may bring inconsistency to what is usually very dependable.
If you demand complete control of your life and those around you, this period can unsettle you because of the likelihood of events that upset even the best-laid plans. Not knowing when such an intrusion will occur can be very trying and can spark fear of what you can?t control. One of the lessons here is recognizing that anything can happen at any time in spite of all precautions. Realizing this, you can become much more focused on the present moment rather than on the past or the future. In this way, you can respond appropriately to whatever is immediate rather than being frozen by indecision or subject to snap judgments. You then are effective whether everything goes according to schedule or not.
