Being different is often easier than following the crowd, and circumstances may allow you to be yourself. Seeking a new direction is appropriate now, and you typically can find what you want, especially when you take a chance. Some risks can work out very well for you during this cycle although they may require instantaneous action. While good things can come to you unexpectedly, the gifts that this period can offer are sometimes off the beaten path, a path which you have to discover. Fortunately, you are more likely to seek what is out of the ordinary and thus put yourself in a position to experience surprising advantages.
It is possible that a sudden turn of events may occur during this period that is precisely what you need even if you do not anticipate it. Recognizing the rewards of living without expectations is one purpose of this cycle since what you receive often is not what you foresee, and the more that you can stay in the present, the more you can take advantage of whatever arises. Situations may occur, however, that make everything very clear, giving you a certainty about where you need to go. Such a vision can help guide you now and in the future, although no matter how plainly you see things, you likely will alter your course over time. The benefit comes from providing an unequivocal picture of what to do at a particular moment, motivating you to take an unusual step.
You tend to succeed by being original rather than imitating what already has been done, and conditions favor unconventional approaches. No matter how conservative you are, there generally is a side of you that is willing to experiment, and now is a favorable time since people are more prone to appreciate the independent positions that you may uphold. If you enjoy being free of restraints, circumstances probably afford you the opportunity to experience this fully with little or no outside or internal resistance.
Important changes may happen during this period, although the shifts that you may undergo often come from within rather than on an external level. Yet the insights that can appear should help you to move forward. Typically this is a cycle that has you looking ahead rather than behind so that you generally are more appreciative of what you and those around you can do rather than what you can?t do. Despite the dynamic quality that is inherent to this influence, it occasionally passes without notice because its effects are erratic, and unless you are looking for alternatives and open to what you don?t know, you may miss the irregular beat when it occurs.
This period of time signifies an important stage in the development of your individuality and you’ll feel ready and capable to make changes in your life to allow you more freedom in your self-expression. This cycle will occur twice in your life, once in your late twenties and again in your mid-fifties. If you’re in the first cycle, you’re ready to face the world as an adult and a distinct individual. You may branch out on your own and will feel more confident about making your own decisions. You may want to become more independent in your career or try a new direction that you may have felt unsure of in the past. If you’re in the second cycle, you may be considering retirement or other changes in your life that will allow you more personal freedom. You may change your schedule to give you more personal time or explore new ways to bring excitement into your career. In either cycle, the next few years will bring a significant process of re-evaluation of your life direction, and the events of this year can prepare you by making you more aware of who you really are and what you need to continue to grow as an individual.
This one-year transit is all about making good changes in your love life — positive changes that will open you up to the love you’ve been seeking all along. You may have been involved in relationships that held you back in some way, such as a love affair with someone who was depressed or who tried to control your behavior or your time too much. Now, you’re being offered the chance to break free from all those old restrictions. You know the ways in which you’ve allowed yourself to be held back in the past, and you’re no longer willing to put up with the restrictions. Now you’ve got some good ideas for how you want your life to change — new ways that you’re going to spend your time and live more closely to who you are as a person. Do you want to go out and learn salsa dancing? Then do it! Have you always wanted to be a writer? Join a class, or better yet, sit down and start writing in a journal. Whatever you do now will be beneficial for your love life, either directly or indirectly. You’ll be able to ask that special someone on an interesting date, or at the very least, your new confidence and energy will attract and impress them.
