The opportunity exists for steady progress during this cycle in areas that are of concern to you. This may mean moving toward an important goal with little resistance. It also can indicate alleviating burdens and freeing yourself of certain responsibilities that weigh upon you. Support is often available, especially where you need it most. You have the capacity to consider your shortcomings in a broader context than usual which allows you to understand their purpose and to recognize their value.
This is an excellent time to learn what is practical and to apply it in a positive way. You tend to have experiences that expand the basis of what you know and can cause you to reconsider those fixed positions that may be more of a hindrance than a help. Reassessing the effectiveness of ingrained patterns can come from a willingness to broaden your outlook. You can see more easily how you, others, and circumstances hold yourself back while recognizing possible ways to release the grip of unwanted fears. At the same time, you can appreciate the function of responsibility and the importance of certain duties and rituals. Your participation in formalities or ceremonies may assist in making this point clear.
Although this period can enhance the seriousness of certain facets of your life, it can also help you to distinguish what is worth your attention and what is not, thereby allowing you a balance between attending to important matters and enjoying yourself while you let go of your worries. Whatever has enduring meaning to you often becomes more firmly rooted within you as its significance typically is enhanced now. On a mundane level, you do well to make improvements to the foundation of any building, relationship, or project that requires your attention since you can readily repair whatever is cracked.
Generally, this is a good time to take care of practical issues. Security questions, financial or otherwise, can bring answers now, and you may achieve a better position in your climb to the top whatever path you travel. You typically exercise your authority prudently yet kindly which makes success more probable, while at the same time those who have charge over you generally are more open and less governed by the letter of the law. This is one of those periods where expanding and contracting forces can reach equilibrium so that you can keep moving ahead without being in a rush.
