Relationships often take center stage during this cycle. Being single you likely have a strong desire for companionship or for a lover, and your ability to draw people into your life can make it happen. Whether single or not, you likely attract a wide variety of people and objects to you now. However, what looks good at the moment may not wear well over time, as you sometimes settle for appearances only. Looking past the image can bring you in touch with the reality of whatever you seek. Being in partnership you may experience a greater desire for freedom and change. Travel and other activities together that take you out of what is familiar can add a new spark to your relationship.
Obtaining pleasure can motivate you now, which possibly becomes excessive if you allow it, but this is a time to enjoy yourself and your friends rather than to deny yourself what you like. Social interactions usually prove rewarding, and the potential exists to make new and interesting contacts, even contacts that can benefit you in some way. Occasionally, you can experience increased dissatisfaction. You may find the more you try to gratify yourself with what seems enticing, the less it fulfills you. One lesson of this cycle comes from encountering situations, especially with others, that fall short of your expectations. Such interactions can make you acutely aware of what does not bring you happiness, so that you can begin to recognize what does.
You can gain clarity on what brings you joy not from what you lack but from appreciation of what you have. It is possible to enrich your life to the extent that you achieve contentment, at least for the moment. If you rely on external adornments to make you glad, your contentment likely is transitory. By acknowledging the abundance of who you are and what you have as well as the value of your friends, you often will have pleasure that sustains you well beyond this interval. This is an opportunity provided you; it is a matter of being aware and being open to take advantage of it.
You tend to want harmony now. While seeking compromise can prove very effective in all your dealings, be wary of giving in just to please others. Certainly being generous is an excellent attribute, and you have much to offer to others, which they gladly receive, but try to exercise some selectivity in your beneficence. Indiscriminate choices may erode the value of what you have to extend. Spending money and other resources usually is easy, and although you likely purchase objects of beauty and worth, it is possible to exceed your financial limits. Others may exhibit generosity towards you, especially if you are in need, but it may not be as beneficial as it appears at first glance. Again, exercising good judgment is an important lesson during this time, and helps to make a potentially rewarding period a reality.
