This is the start of a new year cycle. Why not reserve some time today to celebrate and enjoy yourself? There could be a gap or window in time that opens now, making insights possible. Take a look. Also, one of these days is a happy birthday! A good day to spend with a loved one. Emotions are up and you may even find yourself pondering a bit on the meaning of life. You feel at one with your situation. All in all, a productive and potentially satisfying day. A day for thinking and ideas. You may feel like talking a bit more than usual, exploring new ideas or getting happily lost in a conversation. There will be this urge to communicate.

Hectic emotional energy. Don't do too much dreaming just now. It would be very easy for you to get carried away with some fancy or another. Your feelings are not in sync with your imagination. You may be hard to satisfy. Intense emotional drama is available if that is what you need. Your emotions are not in tune with the more sensitive and private areas of your life. Push on now and you risk some very turbulent emotional scenes. A great time when good fortune and plain old luck surrounds you. It is easy for you to make correct decisions, find the right path and move forward as far as career and success are concerned. Life's problems seem easy to solve and manageable. A time when support and recognition from both the public and family & friends should be forthcoming. You feel at home in the world and it more than takes care of you. You could have deep insights into your own feelings and inner, spiritual nature. You find that you can really use your mind to make clear choices and think things thru. Career decisions are straight forward and easy to make. You make your way through ideas, concepts, and your ability to communicate and express them to others. You may find yourself more than a little acquisitive, and your current appreciation for just about everything may lead you to overspend, indulge too much. You will make career gains by your ability to sense quality and choose accordingly. Things are happening, and your career or path depends upon your own ambition and drive, which is strong now. Able to use good common horse sense, you can feel trends and make the right moves. A time to get ahead by taking action, doing. A time of good fortune when things open up in a very natural way for you. Situations are almost tailor-made and it is easy to see which path is the one to take. Opportunities abound and you may find yourself wanting (and able) to do almost everything. A real time to buckle down and consolidate your career. Your organizational abilities and sense of responsibility will be what guides you and proves successful. Your career could assume a much more determined and solid form. A firm foundation. A time to take risks and dare to be a little unconventional. You will prosper thru new insights, inventions, and an independent point of view. Your career could open up by taking the road less travelled by, daring to be the oddball... new approaches. You will prosper by pursuing your ideals and most deep-seated dreams of how life could be. Don't be afraid to project that image, make those dreams real. Ideas of group cooperation and communion (mass images) could further your career. You may find that both your personal growth and career may depend upon how you can handle the very sensitive psychological material that could be coming up now. You will benefit from analytical insights, getting to the heart of things. Penetrating. Opportunities appear all around you but always seem to challenge your status-quo. Some real decisions have to be made whether the risk is worth the change it will bring about in your situation. The clear choice may go against your better interests. Career choices, decisions that should be made, may appear to go against or challenge your current sense of security and home environment. The easy way out may not be beneficial to your health and general well-being. Weigh alternatives with care. Opportunities and obvious career decisions may go against your own ideas on the subject. These easy solutions and possible alternatives may be a challenge to the way you think. Communication about your job may be difficult now. What is a clear career decision (an easy solution) may go against your own sense of values, how you feel about the matter. You may find yourself having to choose between your career and your sense of enjoyment, the things you love and appreciate. A career decision, something that is obviously in your own best interests, may go against feelings and emotions. You may have to ignore your feelings and put them aside in order to benefit from the current sequence of events. Possible resentment. Possibly a career turning point that may require some careful thought and good judgement on your part. The current flow of events may dictate a path that runs against your own real talents and abilities. Don't sell yourself short. Hang in there. Opportunities may go against your own sense of security and responsibility. Career choices may require that you take a chance and neglect the home front. This is a tough call, and some compromise is perhaps the best way to a workable solution. Career choices, the obvious path that is opening up for you may grate and go against your own sense of freedom and independence. Success and security at the express of originality may be too great a price to pay. Some middle road could be found. The career path is open and clear, yet it may go against or challenge some of your ideals and life dreams. Choosing between what your intuition tells you and the road to success is a toughie. Take care to cut a deal that is a fair compromise. Your career choices may go against your own sensitivity and need for change and growth. You may have to struggle to balance these two real needs: success on one hand and personal growth on the other. This should be an interesting balancing act. Everything may be pouring in at once, and all good news. Your career direction gets some encouragement, and life's problems should find easy solutions. You may benefit from a older person or one in authority. Life could assume a dreamlike stance. Your home environment, friends, and surroundings in general get facilitated and receive encouragement. Your work or career is in real harmony with the rest of your life. You could gain from subordinates or younger people during this time. You find that you can really use your mind to make clear choices and think things thru. Career decisions are straightforward and easy to make. You make your way thru ideas, concepts and your ability to communicate and express them to others. You may find yourself more than a little acquisitive, and your current appreciation for just about everything may lead you to overspend, indulge too much. You will make career gains by your ability to sense quality and choose accordingly. Things are happening, and your career or path depends upon your own ambition and drive, which is strong now. Able to use good common horse sense, you can feel trends and make the right moves. A time to get ahead by taking action, doing. A time of good fortune when things open up in a very natural way for you. Situations are almost tailor-made, and it is easy to see which path is the one to take. Opportunities abound and you may find yourself wanting (and able) to do almost everything. A real time to buckle down and consolidate your career. Your organizational abilities and sense of responsibility will be what guide you and prove successful. Your career could assume a much more determined and solid form -- a firm foundation. A time to take risks and dare to be a little unconventional. You will prosper thru new insights, inventions, and an independent point of view. Your career could open up by taking the road less travelled by, daring to be the oddball... new approaches. You will prosper by pursuing your ideals and most deep-seated dreams of how life could be. Don't be afraid to project that image, make those dreams real. Ideas of group cooperation and communion (mass images) could further your career. You may find that both your personal growth and career may depend upon how you can handle the very sensitive psychological material that may be coming up now. You will benefit from analytical insights, getting to the heart of things. Penetrating. You may be experiencing a bit of a crunch as your career direction (and path to success) squares off against your more personal self-interests. This may be a real test for you. Be careful not to blow an opportunity for success. Your career and life direction is putting some real pressure on your home and emotional life. Obviously, you can't live without both, so some kind of self-control on your part is indicated. You may have trouble with subordinates, younger people. Your own ideas may not agree with the direction your career is taking. The price of success could mean that ideas and methods of communication you are happy with get ignored or set back. You may feel that you cannot communicate your thoughts. Career decisions that point to real success may go against your sense of values. You may not be able to appreciate this particular way or road to success. The way life is going may seem to ignore much of what you love and appreciate. You may not feel like taking the obvious road to success that has opened in front of you. Good choices from a career standpoint may tend to ignore your feelings and ambitions. Your own basic drive may be at odds with the direction your life is taking. Your career may be at a rather delicate point, and under a lot of pressure. It could be hard to find solutions and make the right decisions as to how to proceed. The whole process could be stopped up and sluggish. You may have to bide your time. Your path or career may be at right angles with your own sense of security and responsibilities. A hard trade-off to figure. You can't win, so some negotiations are in order. Try to cut a path that includes both of the above options. Career choices and direction seem to indicate a loss of freedom and originality on your part. You may feel stifled and forced to go along if you want to succeed. This could result in a real situation, building up to an explosive level. Tread with care. Continued success on the career level may point to your abandoning some of your hopes,dreams, and ideals. While success is important, don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Your ideals got you where you are. Try for a good compromise. This could be a difficult situation. Your career and path to success seems to be running counter to your own need for change and self-growth. Job requirements may stifle your sensitivity, hold you back from growing. Tread this one with care. A crucial time during which you (depending upon what age this takes place) may reach new highs of determination and accomplishment. This will bring great discipline and a concentration or focus that could make or break you -- the ability to work hard. A time for deep probing, during which you may be forced to witness and work thru some of your more inward and emotional issues -- getting to know yourself psychologically. This could result in a serious relationship, perhaps even marriage. A time to organize and discipline your mind and methods of communication. Perhaps a time for serious thinking, getting down to the essential thoughts. School (studies of all kinds) are in order. A time for perspiration in the idea department. You can expect some sort of major re-evaluation of your likes and dislikes, how and what you enjoy or appreciate about yourself and life -- your value system. You may find that your appreciation for the quality of everything is stronger. Re-appraisal. A time during which you could accomplish a lot thru sheer discipline -- control of your energy and drive. You may find yourself turning out any emotional pockets and working with your feelings a lot. A very strong time. Don't push too hard. Here is an opportunity to bring some discipline and determination to the way you are going, your life's path or career. Now you can be selective and practical when it comes to your direction. A good time to start a business with a firm foundation. A major life event that marks the end of a formative period and the beginning of more independence. You are on your own, and this marks the start of increased responsibility and accountability. A time for deep thought, review of self, a new chance. A time to channel and put into practice new insights, ideas, inventions and the like. At the same time, your more rebellious and independent side may come under better control. Your practical solutions to day-to-day problems are organized and solid. You could be forced to re-define your ideals and reshape your own self-image. Making your dreams real, and seeing that reality is all that you dreamed it could be, is where it is at just now. You may find your intuition and sense of truth deepening. You will probably be reviewing a lot of very sensitive psychological material. Although you may not be able to notice any change, this is a chance to organize your thoughts and build new habits that will bring orderly change in the future. This may be a difficult time period during which you may experience opposition and blockage from events, others, the situation in general. A turning point. An opportunity to take control and become more disciplined. A chance to see your own problems. This could be a time when everything around you (your living situation) seems to be in flux and even turmoil. You may feel opposed and challenged by others. Working thru problems acted out with others will be the order of the day and hard to avoid. Mental organization and discipline may fall apart or be challenged during this time. Communication may be difficult or work at cross purposes. Hard to write or exchange letters, ideas with others, or write that book. A lot of mental energy stirring. Could be a damper on your ability to enjoy or appreciate your self and your life during this time. You may disagree with and find yourself at odds with the value system of someone close to you. Financial and aesthetic matters could be under seige. Emotional challenge, probably offered from someone close to you may mark this time period. Circumstances may press you and tend to bring out the rebel in you. You could feel frustrated and thwarted by events. Self-control is in order. Circumstances may block or challenge your path or career. Progress or growth may slow or seem non-existant. It could be difficult to make decisions, get a sense of direction, and solve problems. Another person could block or stand in your way. A major time of change where circumstances manage to get our attention and some sort of challenge or turning point is to be expected. Our response here depends upon how we have acted thus far and may foretell the flow of events for years to come. Circumstances may conspire to limit and hinder your sense of independence and originality. It could be hard to find easy solutions to problems right now. Conservative forces or events may challenge or oppose your ideas and sense of freedom. The world may appear to challenge and oppose your dreams and ideals. Harsh reality may seem to ridicule you, and this could come thru another person. You will have to hang on to your dreams and uphold your own self-image in this rather rough weather. Circumstances may appear to work against you and bring very sensitive issues to the fore. Changes you want to make or are making may be challenged by someone close to you or by events. This could heat up and be an explosive time. A time during which circumstances will bend to your will, and things have a way of working out smoothly. Here is a real opportunity to complete and work out difficulties and projects that require both long-term effort and a high degree of discipline. A good time when your efforts really pay off and things seem to run smoothly. Now you have an ability for sustained work that allows you to coordinate and organize like never before. Bring to fruition uncompleted tasks or character development. Your mind may be very clear now and your thoughts brought to a sharp focus. Easy to organize your thoughts, and communication of all kinds is furthered. Write that book, take that course. Your thoughts count now, so use your mind. Communicate. Circumstances may augment and stimulate appreciation and enjoyment of your life situtation. Your system of values may deepen, providing you with a better sense of discrimination and good taste. Purchasing, selecting colors, etc. is at a high. Circumstances may urge you to great effort and hard work. Things are working with rather than against you, so don't hold back. However, don't overdue and try to go too far too fast. Let things take their natural course, which should be an easy one now. Outer circumstances and the flow of events make it easy for you to make clear decisions, see the road ahead and move forward. Things seem to fall in place and progress is easy. Be careful not to overextend or bite off more than you can chew. Outer circumstances are favorable and it should be easy for you to push forward in projects and in all aspects of your life. Things may seem almost magical in the way they work out in your favor. A great time to organize and get things accomplished. Events may make it easy for you to be original, find new solutions to old problems and have breakthrus. You may find yourself able to implement your ideas and to put them into practice. Independence, originality, and eccentricity are to the fore. Circumstances should work together to help to bring out your ideals, make it easier to make your dreams real. You may find yourself examining and testing ideals, separating the wheat from the chaff. All in all, a good time to project your image. A good time to make some changes and reach new levels. A lot of personal and sensitive psychological material may be surfacing, but you can handle it and turn it to your advantage. You may look back on these months as very transformative. Circumstances may effect you in a very direct manner. The great wheel of change may appear to grind to a halt or to move at a snail's pace. A time during which everything you do may seem more difficult and require great effort. Could be tough. A touch-and-go time when it comes to your emotions and the environment in which you find yourself. You may be up against it for a while as things get tight and progress is slowed. Your emotional life may be blocked or slow to a trickle. Patience. A lot of mental energy churning around, but it may be hard to put it to work. Circumstances may prove difficult regarding communication, writing, ideas, and the like. Things can get tight, and you may find it hard to think or study during this time. A time to be patient and tread a little lightly when it comes to indulgence and overextending yourself. Things could be tight. You may find it hard to appreciate or enjoy very much just now, and times may find you feeling lonely and at odds with life. Not an easy period for most of us. Events conspire to work against our own ambition and drive, bringing obstacles and slowing progress to a halt. Easy to overdue, strain and explode under these aspects, so take it easy and bide your time. Events make it difficult to make good decisions concerning career and life direction. The danger of building on unsound foundations, expanding too fast is present. You could feel up-tight and blocked on all sides... unable to move forward. Patience. This could be a somewhat difficult time when circumstances may block or bring us to a standstill. It is easy now to work at cross purposes to your own interests. A good time to step back and re-evaluate your aims and goals. This may take some time. This may not be an easy time, for events and circumstances may conspire to block your sense of freedom and independence. Someone challenges your ideas, finds them unconventional. It may not be easy to find suitable and new solutions to problems now. Could be a difficult time in terms of your self-image, dreams, and ideals. A close examination may find you separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to realistic ideas and dreams of what can be. Your imagination may feel blocked and stagnant. Not an easy time unless you like walking on eggs. Outer events could manage to challege you at every turn by bringing up very sensitive issues, one after another. You may have to move ever so gently and with patience to avoid explosions and anger. A time of real breakthrus when insights into your ambitions and self will be possible. This is a time when authority figures, older people, and men may figure in your life. The discovery of a teacher or vison of the future is possible. A time when the new and unexpected may figure in your living situation or surroundings. An insight into your support system, mother, or females may be important. You could discover a student or a younger person that opens to you. A time when you could achieve real breakthrus in the form of ideas, communications, and the mind in general. Computers, electronics may suddenly become important. Insight into your own mental workings, original thoughts and the like. New and (perhaps) unusual ways of appreciating and loving may be possible now. You may discover something new about love, or may adopt a different and unconventional value system for a time. A time during which insights into your emotions or drive may be forthcoming. You may discover new and unconventional feelings, or bursts of emotions or temper may occur. A time of emotional breakthru and discovery. Career insight and breakthrus are possible. You might discover unconventional solutions to life's problems; new directions and paths to take are in order. You could find a teacher or guide, a new approach to your career, etc. New ways to organize and discipline yourself are possible now. Here is an opportunity to get some insight into some of your problems and responsibilities that may prove of great value in the years to come. Break up old habits, get out of ruts, etc. An important event that marks a time during which you can have the experience of taking a greater role in the creation of life itself. You become one with the creative force to a marked extent. A time of discoveries and insights, in particular as relate to your most inner dreams, visions, and ideals. New ways to feel union and communion with life, and also some new escapes. Your imagination really opens up and breaks thru. A time when personal insight into your most secret and personal psychological self may be possible. Breaking with what went before, you may find new ways to take change and transform yourself. Penetrating to the heart, opening up what is sealed. A time when considerable tension could accumulate, with release coming in the form of unexpected bursts of temper that may well involve other people. You may find yourself feeling rebellious and challenging those in authority or the established order. A (perhaps) difficult time when you could find yourself feeling rebellious and independent regarding your current situation or surroundings. Your erratic behavior could bring you in opposition to a group, younger person, or just strain relationships. You could be under considerable mental tension or feel hemmed in by an overly conservative mental atmosphere. You may feel compelled to change your mind now, and have new thoughts and forms of expression. Bucking other people's ideas may be in order. A time during which you could be unappreciative of much of your life, especially your standards and value system. Freedom and independence come to the fore, possibly provoking independent and unusual behavior in you. You may not be appreciated for this. Unexpected behavior and an urge to be independent could find you ignoring your feelings and much of what has motivated you up to now, taking you off in a different direction. Your unusual behavior could provoke others, cause emotional confrontation. A restless time, which could find you trying new and unexpected ideas at the expense of the status-quo, especially your career. You may feel like breaking out, getting away from the path you have tread up to now. Sudden breaks from the routine. A tendency to break away from routine, ignoring responsibilities, trying new and different things. This unusual behavior on your part could challenge your sense of order and discipline, sending you into a time when you are unpredictable, unstable. Coming around the 42nd year, its no wonder this aspect has been called one of "forty-tude." It often signifies an attempt to reverse the current life direction, to "stop the world, I want to get off" and redirect toward more personal, religious issues. A time of independence when you may try new and different things that don't necessarily go with your established ideals and image of yourself. You could rebel against any "pie in the sky" you may have bought, sentimentality, and too much dreaming. A time when you may feel rebellious and act out a need for freedom, especially from any psychological, and deep-seated feelings of insecurity and vulnerability. You have no interest in self-analysis, deep conversations, gossip, and the like. A time during which you may be able to breakthru and move ahead with your ambitions and general life's purpose. You could receive unexpected help from someone older or from authority figures. A man or teacher could appear.

Communications are facilitated, connections of all kinds, news, etc. are furthered, often at the expense of tradition, established order. A time during which you discover new and different reasons or ways to enjoy and appreciate life. A kind of mini-revolution may find you altering your value system, allowing yourself to like new things. A new approach to love and compassion. A time during which you are unusually motivated, or driven in new and unexpected directions. You could receive unexpected backing and, in general, your efforts are successful and reach new heights of originality. New and unexpected emotions may come up. Breakthrus in your career could open up during this time, making it possible for you to solve problems and reach new levels of accomplishment.

Breaking away, turning over the applecart. New visions, sudden insights into your image of yourself or into your ideals and dreams are possible. A time to reshape and renew your own philosophy or religion, during which your imagination is at full tilt. Breakthrus in compassion and communion. A time of sudden insights (maybe jolts) into some of the most sensitive and vulnerable areas of your self and psychology. Breakthrus as regards inner growth and transformation. A time during which you reach new levels in understanding life and death. You may have to control an urge to rebel and be different that could set your ambitions and goals back a step. An inner struggle between your own sense of purpose or direction and a need for independence and freedom makes this a possibly tense time. An urge to change and try new things may challenge and upset your domestic scene or support system. In this case your tendency to rebel acts at cross purposes to those who care for you. A no-win situation that requires treading a fine line on your part. A tendency to act suddenly, without thought or consideration. A lot of mental tension or worry stemming from a rebellion against ideas, the way you think and communicate. An urge to break out of old mental patterns that could be destructive. Your value system may receive a challenge from a new independent streak in yourself that wants to break away and try new things. You may not appreciate the urge to upset and change things that is trying to assert itself. This leads to tension. A possibly explosive time during which a rebellious urge within you presents an emotional challenge. You may have to resist attempts to divert your drive and energy in directions that will take you nowhere. A lot of heavy energy. An urge on your part to rebel or break away could affect your career direction or vocation. Your wish to be independent, to try new things and so on, comes at an inappropriate time and could cause real problems, tension, etc. at work. Go slow just now. A tendency toward change and the unexpected or new could affect your sense of security. A rebellious mood might find you wanting to ignore responsibilities and go against what you have built or established. Something could break. A period of pressure and tension relating to your sense of independence and freedom. You may find yourself curbing a tendency within to rebel, and actually find freedom this time by pursuing more established routes. You could find yourself struggling to overthrow everything that is dreamy or otherworldy in yourself, perhaps even undermining your real dreams and ideals. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Perhaps your rebelliousness can be kept in tow. An urge to rebel against all that is hidden, private and secret about yourself. Your independence could be at the price of superficiality, denying yourself opportunities for inner change and growth. Internal pressures could burst out of the closet. A time during which you bring imagination and new ideals to your ambitions and life direction. You could get carried away and lose sight of the practical, day-to-day realities in your quest for religious, philosophical, and mystical understanding. A time during which you may be able to carry your ideals and dreams into reality, make your home and environment reflect your inner desires, become as you dreamed it could be. You may find that you can escape with your friends, those who support you. A time of inspiration and creativity, especially if you like to write or speak -- communication of all kinds. You are able to put your dreams and ideals into words. Could also be a time when you are a fuzzythinker when it comes to practical decisions. A time to appreciate philosophy, religion, and all that is mystical. Your value system, and the way you care for others may shoot up a notch to a higher plane. Imaginative purchases and aquisitions are at an all-time high. Not a very practical time. You may find that you have intuitive and psychic abilities that have never surfaced before. A urge to be more devoted to higher ideals, to making your dreams real is possible. You may feel emotions that are more religious. Don't get carried away. You could find yourself pursuing more spiritual directions, or finding someone who can guide you to realizing your inner dreams and ideals. Your path is toward cooperation and union with others, even at the expense of the practical and selfish. Problems could lose some of their definition, appear less difficult now. You might have a sense of living in a dreamworld, or of being awake in your own dream. Everything seems less solid and definite. The spirit world seems real and possible. A time when insights and ideas flow together and add up to form a larger reality, the big picture. A sense of unity and connectivity as everything merges together and works. It is almost like a big dream, like being out of the body. A vision. A dream world where ideals are real and reality is as we always dreamed it would be. The dewdrop slips into the shining sea. A sense of unity and world communion. A sense of devotion and the spiritual. A time to explore your own inner resources and psychic sensitivities. The psychological world takes on the qualities of a living dream. A journey to the essence or beginnings of life, regeneration. This marks a time when you could easily get carried away or even deluded with respect to your own goals and ambitions. A tendency to over-imagination and dreaming. If you spend all of your time at the sideshow, the main tent will be gone. A tendency to escape or withdraw into your imagination at the expense of your friends and supporters. You may be unrealistic, taken with dreams, psychic goings on and the like. Your living situation or a younger person may challenge your dreaminess. It could be easy to get carried away and to ignore facts, or think in a fuzzy or deluded manner. Your ideals, what you imagine for yourself, may be challenged by the ideas and thoughts of others. Communications could become blurred. Others may challenge or not appreciate your expressed ideals and goals. You could find it easy to get carried away and be indiscriminate, or lose hold of your sense of values. You could do something that goes against your own sense of good taste. Your imagination and fancied ideals may mislead you to the point of motivating you in a wrong direction. Your real feelings could be overlaid and obscured by some supposed spiritual or humanitarian ideal. Later you may feel you did the wrong thing. It could be easy to be misled by high-sounding ideas and false ideals to make career or vocational decisions that are wrong for you. Be careful that you don't involve yourself in some plan to misguide or deceive another. Misguided idealism and false spirituality could find you ignoring responsibilities in favor of a lot of high-sounding talk. You might find yourself losing your resolve or determination to take care of business and get things accomplished. Ideals and dreams conflict with your need to be different and perhaps unconventional. Being slavish to established ideals could result in a loss of freedom and insight. Be aware that lofty ideals do not automatically guarantee honesty. A time of real change when many give up or accept life on new terms. There is the possibility of taking a more active part (consciously) in life, a sense of sharing the creative force, the experience of becoming one with the creative force, the creator. Your dreams and ideals may conspire to ignore and push aside the need in you for real inner growth and transformation. If you get too carried away or lost in the dream world, you can expect to be hauled back by some very personal inner confrontations. You find that you are able to bring more imagination to bear on your goals and ambitions now. You might find your ideals taking a more spiritual turn, thus involving yourself more in community and religious projects. An opportunity to use your imagination to improve your living environment, beautify your surroundings. You may feel very idealistic about your friends, especially those younger or who could use your help. Others give you ideal support. You are at your most poetical, able to put your dreams and ideals into words and communicate them thru speaking and writing. Your whole mental environment takes on an almost other-worldly hue during this time. Your muse wakes. An appreciation for ideas and thoughts that are quite other-worldly is upon you. It is easy for you to love and be compassionate, and to value what life offers. You have a sense of unity and brotherhood that will stay with you. A renewed set of values. Moody, even dreamy during this period of time. Your emotions and feelings could reach heights that are close to ecstatic. It is easy for you to find the proper motivation to fulfill your ideals, to make your dreams into reality. Your career could become almost ideal, or you find yourself taking an interest in more spiritual and mystical matters. The direction of your life could turn more to questions of religion and world unity. Occult and esoteric subjects may concern you. The problems and responsibilities of life may be seen in a new light, as part of a larger drama (almost like a dream) that you are living. You are able to handle difficulties more easily, seeing them as part of a larger story. Insights into your deeper, more spiritual nature are available to you during this period of time. You may be able to see and discover whole new areas of your psyche or mind that have been closed up to now. Insight into dreams and ideals. A time to reach beyond the physical into the realm of myths and dreams. You may have the sensation of being awake within your own dream, and reality may be like you dreamed it could be. This is a time for visions and seeing the unity beyond differences. Your own inner psychology and vulnerablities are open to you now almost as if in a waking dream. A renewed interest in exploring the realm of dreams and imagination finds you getting to the heart of secrets and sensitive areas of your self. Your idealism and the dreams you dream right now may end up costing you in terms of lost ambitions and setbacks in your life goals. Escape just now could be at the expense of a reality that you have planned and worked for. Delusion is in the air. You could get the wrong idea, develop false ideals, and let your imagination carry you away to the point that those who support and care for you are neglected or hurt. Walk a careful line when it comes to dreams vs. realities. The dreams can be bad. A long dreamy time, when you find it easy to lose yourself in one flight of fancy or another, and often at the expense of rational thinking and good judgment. Normally clear ideas are fuzzy now, and it is hard to be logical or consistent. Your current bout of idealism may carry you away to the point of damaging or obscuring your true life values. Probably not the best time to make aesthetic or value judgments, since your ability to appreciate may be blurred or unrealistic. Your current crop of dreams and ideals may not feel right to you, or may seem to go against all that normally motivates you. It may be easy to be misled and find yourself pouring energy and effort into directions that will bring no return. A time when false optimism and high-falootin' ideals may wind up affecting your career. It could be easy to make career moves now that are the result of deception, your own or somebody else's. Your imagination carry you in a wrong direction. There could be a tendency to view your accomplishments as having almost no substance during this time. A false set of ideals may mislead you and cause you to neglect your responsibilities and get lost in what will amount to a bunch of nothing. A (perhaps) rugged time when it is easy for you to get lost in the clouds and lose sight of your own intrinsic originality and independence. You could deceive yourself in matters concerning personal freedom and real insight. A time when dreams, fantasies, and the urge to be free of this hard world could themselves be a fantasy that deceives and misleads you. Your own goals and ideals may be stressed and challenged. A tendancy to become unrealistic and over-imaginative may lead you to ignore and deny your own need for inner growth and personal change. Your current ideals may tell you that analysis and sensitivity are not where it's at. A wrong message. An ultra-intense time, during which you may eliminate a lot that is superficial and unessential in your life. A deep and lasting change in your ambition and life goals could evolve. A time of very hard work, cutting thru appearances down to the quick. A time of great change and evolution, in particular regarding your home life and surroundings -- your support system. You may draw a whole new environment around you after boiling down the current situation to the bare essentials. If you think that you might lose your mind under the current mental pressure, probably not. However, you will be intensely examining ideas, thoughts and concepts with an eye to getting rid of unwanted dross. Searching, research, detective work, etc. Stand by to cut loose a lot of dead wood, in particular regarding what you appreciate and value -- your value system. This coul d be a permanent change that leaves you appreciating only the essential and lasting things. Careful that you don't become some sort of speed demon, for intense (passionate) feelings and drive will be at your command for a good long time. You could find yourself driven to dig and search deep within the human passions, deep in the psyche. Intense focus on your career can find you mercilessly cutting back and getting down to the bare essentials regarding the path or direction you are taking with your life. You will have a sense of being almost driven to pursue your course, and succeed. A time when you are intensely concerned with matters of personal security and responsibility. Any project or enterprise will be examined in minute detail to determine if it is sound and well put together. A sense of being driven to find the facts. You may become fiercely independent and rebellious, defying rules and conventions, especially as regards psychological mores and taboos. You could find yourself gaining insights into everything secret and psychological, breaking accepted rules. A time of intense soul-searching during which you examine your ideals and goals with an eye to separating the wheat from the chaff. You could take an interest in world unity and a more communal type of existence. Search for pure ideals, pure vision. The symbol of the phoenix -- complete burning and regeneration or transformation. Power struggles, in particular with authorities can be one sign of this aspect. Your need for constant inner change and growth may end up setting you back as much as it helps. Your ambitions and basic life direction could be challenged. Your tendency to analyze and probe, and to generally get at the heart of things finds itself at loggerheads with your living and support system. Others may resent your persistent prying and digging, and confrontations can be expected. A time when your inner and personal thoughts and experiences cannot be put into words, or had best not be. Ideas and communication in general may tend to be superficial, deliberately avoiding getting into anything of substance or controversy. You may not appreciate how others insist on getting personal, or your own prying and inner diggings may not be enjoyed. The intensely sensitive psychological material you are coming up with rubs the wrong way, upsets your own values system. A very emotional time during which you can find your basic drive and energy ramming up against questions of security, power and deep insecurity. You don't feel like dealing with some of the very hot psychological issues that keep springing up. Career opportunities and choices go dead against what you feel in your gut to be right. Your own sense of honesty and sensitivity squares off with some possible moves that could lead you nowhere, or worse, lead you astray. Inner searching and a sense of being vulnerable and exposed could tempt you to drop your responsibilities and spend more time on personal growth. It may be difficult to concentrate on your duties during this time of psychological sensitivity. A time of legitimate tension when your need for security and privacy is challenged by all that is rebellious and unconventional within yourself. A need for deep self-examination cuts into any sense of freedom and independence you may have. Ideals and dreams tend to take a back seat to your current need for security and privacy. A growing sense of vulnerablity could lead to behavior that goes against much of what you believe in -- your own stated goals. A time of extreme vulnerablility during which deep and profound change and transformations can take place. Rebirth. You could receive some help in the form of a real drive towards realizing your self and life ambitions. You are able to cut thru a lot that is unessential and get on with the real work. Also: a special relationship with an authority figure or teacher. Your support system (family, home, those who give you nourishment, etc.) become more secure. You are able to dispense with some of the unessentials and develop what is most basic and true in your environment. You encourage better support. Your mental energies (ideas, thoughts, etc.) may undergo some transformation or change, a natural sense of growth and development. Concentration and getting down to the really essential ideas is facilitated during this time period. A natural transformation of your values, the way you appreciate and love yourself and others, is taking place. You may cease to waste time (and money) acquiring that which is worthless, and develop an eye for that which is lasting and worthwhile. A time when you may feel very passionate, or during which your feelings, emotions, and basic life urge undergo change and possibly transformation. You feel more personal and direct and find that you waste less time with hurt feelings than before. A time during which your career (life path) undergoes a certain amount of change and transformation. You find yourself uninterested in sidetracks -- what is not essential. You can really home in on how to solve problems and get where you want to go. A time of change that finds you examining your foundations, responsibilities, and basic security. You can dispense with all that is unsound or superficial, leaving only that which has been properly determined or solid. Get down to the nitty-gritty. A time to break the mold and try what is unconventional, but with real passion or persistence. You may be relentless in your quest to discover new insights, trying new and different things. A much more independent and adventurous you results. A time to really examine and analyze your dreams and ideals. It can be easy now to separate the wheat from the chaff and get rid of much of the "pie in the sky" stuff you have bought along the way. The results are solid goals that support you, stand up. Continual discovery, persistent search, and continual change and transformation keep you on the move and growing. You are able to penetrate and get to the very heart of things; thus research and the like would be good. A time when your basic life direction and sense of purpose may be tested by sensitive and very personal matters. Questions of vulnerability and insecurity may hound you, trying to force you off your slated path. You may have to tread with care. Sensitive matters of extreme vulnerability may tend to intrude on your home life and environment. You could be unable to share all the changes you may be experiencing with those around you. Someone may be unable or unwilling to support your feelings. A crazy time when you may feel under a lot of mental pressure. You may be unable to put some of your insecurity and sense of change into words, to communicate them. A tendency to probe and analyze may not fit in with your normal way of thinking. An intense time, during which your need for inner growth and change may not agree with how you feel, your current value system. You may not appreciate all of the intensely personal stuff that is boiling up, coming to your attention. Power struggle may well be the keyword here. You could find yourself pushing against a need for greater sensitivity and inner growth. Push could come to shove, and you may end up driving against your own inadequacies and vulnerability. Your career can end up at right angles to your own inner sensitivities and need for growth and change. Emotional material welling up from within you may challenge and threaten the current path you travel, causing you to stop and consider it with care. Your sense of responsibility and sheer determination may not allow you to admit any feelings of vulnerability and sensitivity that may be coming to your attention. A power struggle could result and a careful compromise may have to be found. Your own fears and insecurities come up against the rebel in you with potentially explosive results. The independent side of you cares little for matters of protection and security that you may be feeling. Result: a real power struggle to negotiate. Your ideals and dreams are locked in combat with your need for inner growth and transformation. Sensitivities that continue to pop up don't fit in with your avowed set of aims and goals. The resulting friction requires a careful compromise. A time when all that is personal, sensitive, and secret will come storming out of the closet to confront you. A cornucopia of emotional vulnerabilities for you to cope with. Change is the easiest thing to do. Let it flow and let it go. A time to let go of all that is worn out and superficial and to bring what you can across into your personal life. A turning away from the outer world, focusing now on personal and inner changes. New information emerging catches your whole attention. A time when you can respond to new ideas, and find a footing upon which you can build a foundation. You may be gathering resources, materials, finances to catch and hold on to vital ideas, impulses you have experienced. Nurturing and growth. You are exploring and searching now, linking things together, following up connections, seeing where the ends meet -- communications of all kinds, finding the limits. A sense of being on your own without the support you might like to have. The end of a time of questioning and feeling your way. Now you can get a handle on it, secure your position, feel whatever limits there are, and move forward. You have a base to build upon. You have sent down roots. The sense of having lived and experienced something. Perhaps the dawning of an awareness of who you are and what you have been thru these last months. A growing sense of discovery and even ownership of your own self and experience. A time of discrimination and possible self-examination. You are sorting thru the experiences of the last several months, separating the worthwhile from the worthless and in general salvaging what you can. Also, attending to your health and well-being. A time for turning away from personal experiences by responding in a more spiritual and social manner. You can handle your own past, and you want to share by relating to others, or in community work. You are able to love and care for yourself and others. A time for getting down to business, stripping away and discarding unessentials, memories of things past, and the like. You can separate the wheat from the chaff, concentrating on important things. You are unsentimental about all of this. A time to concentrate on essentials and to focus on the essence of your situation. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. Perhaps a rekindling of philosophical and religious thoughts. A time when practical vision may be at a high, during which you can see what needs to be done and just how to go about doing it. Career and vocational issues may benefit from the increased clarity you possess. 13Astrology is as old as measured time. Although there are different approaches to astrology, all astrologers appear united in the idea that there is a connection between the heavens and the Earth -- they share one common space. There has been a misunderstanding about astrology to the effect that the heavens somehow "influence" events here on Earth. This theory of celestial influence has penetrated into the modern world until today it is the main public idea of astrology. Professional astrologers do not hold with theories of celestial influence. Instead, the modern astrologer conceives of the heavens and Earth as united, interpenetrating, and sharing a common space and time. There is but a single phenomenon. The great cosmic or celestial events happening around and beyond the Earth (eclipses, line-ups, etc.) are not seen as causing events to occur on Earth, but are great signatures of events ALSO happening here on Earth. No simple cause and effect. Thus, there is no "cause" in the heavens and then an "effect" on Earth. Rather, both planetary and earthly events happen simultaneously and are mutually reflective. Neither is the cause of the other. Both are the product of this single moment. One in the heavens above, the other here on the Earth below. While astrologers don't feel that heavenly events are the cause of events on Earth, they do feel that specific heavenly events are enacted here on the Earth, too, and at the same moment. In other words, there is only one grand "play", or moment. The great drama enacted in the sky is also acted out (in exact detail) on Earth in the same instant. Thus the Earth is an equal part of the cosmos and shares in that cosmic moment. Scientists have been discovering (for example) that Sun spots, solar flares, and solar activity have a very definite (and almost immediate) effect here on Earth. Astrologers tend to feel that all major cosmic events (eclipses, etc.) are interactive. They represent an activity also taking place within our self and consciousness. In summary, astrology is a study of heavenly cycles and cosmic events as they are reflected in our earthly environment and vice versa -- a vast cosmic clock. Astrologers find the cosmic patterns revealed in the rhythmic motions of the planets a help in shedding light on the seemingly helter-skelter of everyday life. Astrologers have their heads in the heavens only to better guide their feet here on Earth.
