Certain aspects of your life that are slow or even stagnant may become more active during this cycle. If you are cautious by nature, you may experience an urge to move forward more rapidly, and you may broaden your set standards by being exposed to new ideas and situations. Sometimes this period can seem to challenge what you have established by forcing you to deal with more than you can handle, and you may have to contend with possibilities that require you to rethink a position.
This is an excellent time to implement strategies that expand what already is well founded so that you can make steady and deliberate progress toward your goal. Whatever you begin now tends to have structure, yet with enough freedom to prevent rigidity. Responsibility merges with restlessness so you may only assume those obligations that you either enjoy or know are necessary. To the extent that you are weighed down by your duties, this cycle can offer opportunity. This may mean a break from ongoing tasks, support from others who ease any burdens, or perhaps a better understanding of what it means to be accountable.
You may have experiences that require you to be dependable while at the same time remaining independent. Greater confidence is often available to deal with your deepest insecurities, and you can initiate steps to move past whatever it is that holds you back. By appreciating shortcomings rather than rejecting them, you may recognize their meaning as your fears can teach you invaluable lessons now. This cycle can have you focusing on what is affirmative and seeing the best in any situation. You have the capacity to bring together realism and optimism where you can accomplish things that are a stretch yet are within your reach.
The authority that you possess may widen. If following the rules is important, you may ease restrictions and give others more freedom. If you are uncertain of your ability to set limits, you may find it easier to do so now. At the same time, your dealings with those who have command over you may improve or expand. You tend to benefit from being strong without being rigid, from being focused without being anxious. If you are stuck, try to take advantage of this time period to begin a new phase of activity that truly matters to you. A deeper understanding is available to you that can soften fixed opinions and long-held perspectives. You benefit from seeking to embrace what you ordinarily refuse to accept.
