You may gain a very clear picture of your priorities, although what matters most may prove difficult to attain, at least for the moment. There is an element of surprise that typically runs through this cycle and which tends to disturb what you have built over an extended period of time. Sometimes what you have taken pains to develop can break apart if it is not firmly rooted. Even what you grasp tightly may come feel the pressure since this is a period where sudden realignments are possible. You may suddenly recognize whatever is out of place and is not working according to plan. To the extent that you know what you want, and it is consistent with your true needs, you likely find this period propels and excites you.
If the goals that you pursue are unsatisfying, you may awaken to the realization that you want something else or that what you have is no longer able to sustain your interest. While change can occur now, it often produces conflict. The pull of the past and what you have relied upon for so long may be opposed by the future and the promise of a new direction. Fear of leaving behind may contrast with the anticipation of moving forward. Depending on how rigid you are in particular areas usually determines the level of stress that can surface.
Although this period can highlight where you are most resistant, it also can clarify what should endure despite the environment of unpredictability that tends to surround you. The potential exists to gain insight into whatever or whomever has lasting meaning for you so that an unambiguous purpose may emerge uncluttered by extraneous pursuits. Your focus can become much sharper on the essential qualities of life. On a practical level, solving longstanding problems can happen now due to your ability to cut through personal biases to an objective point of view and approaching the same set of conditions from a unique angle.
This cycle may force you to contend with people or conditions that are different, sometimes very different. Your authority may be tested by what is unfamiliar and what you can?t control. Being set in your ways can make it more of a challenge since you likely experience insecurity when your established order appears threatened by what you consider counter to your dependable world. Having to manage elements that are outside of what you know can actually bring about greater reward and respect since it prompts you to grow rather than to settle for what is familiar. By exploring alternatives to conventional methods, you can further your reach, maintain a fresh perspective, and create a spark.
