Actions taken may produce uncertain results. The urge for freedom can reach a peak during this cycle especially in those areas where you experience tight control. You tend to rebel against any limitations to your independence as your individuality likely is very strong now. Although this cycle may bring you into contact with people, you often have trouble working agreeably with others since you usually like to have your way. You also can have a compelling need to be right. Anyone who interferes in the achievement of your desires may find a formidable if unpredictable opponent; compromise is unlikely. It is possible that you encounter someone who is extremely willful and attempts to combat you in such a way that you are forced to react.
Generally, you don?t back down during this period, and you can demonstrate lightning fast reflexes to any provocation, which can surprise those around you, and even yourself. Problems can occur since you may not distinguish clearly between what is worth fighting for and what is best left alone. While it is difficult to curb the volatile energy that you may exhibit or experience from others, it benefits you to choose your battles and your competitors carefully if possible and even to walk away, especially if it is an unanticipated move by you.
Surprise often is a feature of this period and you can use that to your advantage by doing the unexpected when it is appropriate. This can come from knowing what moment to seize and what to let pass. The discipline required to remain still until the time is right is difficult to attain since your instinct typically is to keep moving. However, if you really know what you want and are willing to try anything to get it, it is easier to recognize when to advance, when to retreat, and when to stay motionless.
Physical exercise provides a useful means to channel any anger or frustration that can manifest from unexpected setbacks. Even if all is running smoothly, you can benefit from employing ways to dissipate the strong nervous energy that you likely possess now. In all affected areas of your life during this period, you must take care not to exceed certain limits, physical or otherwise, since you can easily overdo it. Knowing when to stop is a key lesson of this cycle. You have the ability to lead now, though you may go it alone, and strong ideals can compel you to take charge. This is often a period of challenge, although any events that occur are generally not constant and typically unexpected. Success can come through risk, but you must consider the consequences before taking a step. Plan carefully, act skillfully without expectations so that you are ready to adjust, and you can move ahead rapidly.
