Energies around you since January 2010 suggest that career matters, studies, other activities outside of your home, and the relationship you share with an authority figure and/or your mother have been prominent. This energy will be around until early June 2010, and will return again early in September and will be around until the end of January 2011.
During the visit of this energy it seems that will have at least one major opportunity to change where your life is going – most likely through the areas mentioned, or because of the involvement of the people mentioned. Even if nothing major seems to happen right now because of the changes you make, the benefits of what you change will become apparent as time moves on.
A stressful development during the last couple of weeks of May 2010 is likely to need attention, but will most likely be beneficial in that a major source of conflict will be resolved and lead to a major breakthrough at home and/or in your activities outside of your domestic arena. It seems that the responsibilities in your private life will be in conflict with your desire to take hold of the opportunities in your outer life. The trick here is to try and balance these two conflicting energies.
As part of this process it looks as though an unexpected opportunity will present itself during September 2010 and again during the Christmas/New Year period. The energies around you during these times suggest that you will have a sudden, unexpected and/or unusual opportunity to change where your life is going. However, you will most likely to need to take hold of this matter very quickly in order to make it work.
From early June until early September 2010, and then again from the end of January until your next forecast period, this expansive energy will be working in other areas of your life. The energy working in your life during this time suggests that it is time to expand on and to enjoy your social network, and to share your interests with others as well! It also suggests that you will be seeing the results of changes made to your career and other activities made outside of home during 2010.
During the times mentioned, the energies around you strongly suggest that this is an excellent time to spread your social wings and to expand your circle of friends and people you associate with. New friendships made are likely to work well for all involved, and are likely to bring many benefits. These include an increased confidence in dealing with other people. Sometimes this energy means that the friends you make will be from a different background (cultural, religious or social) that expands you awareness of how others live, and that opens you mind to new possibilities.
The children of other people may feature as a positive aspect of your life during the times mentioned as well… this could be children you are involved with through fostering, teaching, or adoption, or any other contact you have with them. A son or daughter-in-law may also be part of this picture.
Generally, this is a very enjoyable energy to have around, however, like anything in life too much of a good thing can be too much; alternatively there may simply be crisis points that you don’t find enjoyable, but clear the air and provide a change that will bring you benefit later on down the track.
The first period of time when you may experience some stress around the areas of life mentioned is likely to be from the end of May until the middle of June 2010. Energies around you during this time suggest that events are not likely to turn out as expected or planned, however, this doesn’t mean that they are not positive – just different!
A long standing issue around joint finances, debts, trust, and/or ‘secrets’ may be triggered by this energy during July/August 2010 and again during the second half of February 2011. Again, these are likely to be periods of time when you experience some stress – probably emotional, but also represents periods of time that present the opportunity for reaching major turning points. These are likely to be triggered by a friend, your involvement within a group, or through a situation involving the child of another person.
The periods during the second half of August 2010 and again the second half of March 2011 are also looking like stressful, but productive times, particularly in the areas of life just mentioned. It seems that difficulties may arise because you will be in a position where you won’t be sure whether to move forward with a particular person, or to leave things as they are. This energy sometimes feels like being pulled apart in two different directions, and for you it may come about through having to make a choice to pursue a new relationship vs staying in a current one; working alone vs for the benefit of a group, having a child of your own vs adopting; these are just some examples of the possibilities. The good news is that the energy working in your life at these times will help you make a decision; thereby easing a lot stress!
From the beginning of this forecast period until the end of July 2010, it seems that you will need to finish up a family, domestic and/or property matter than has the source of a lot of work and/or worry since the end of 2007. The good news is that you won’t have to deal with this sort of activity again for nearly 30 years: although it can be tough, this energy does provide you with the opportunity and incentive to prepare a solid foundation for your future.
A development late in May 2010 looks like it will herald a major turning point in these matters that will relieve a lot of stress at the same time. Although stressful, by the end of May 2010 you should have a much better sense of where you stand in terms of your private life.
At the end of July 2010 this energy shifts gears and will stay around until 2012. This energy shift suggests a strong focus on issues around love, what it means to you, and how this definition affects the quality of affection shared with those around you. Creativity and fun are also strongly accented, as well as issues around pregnancy and/or children. If you are single it seems that love will be harder to find, however, once you do get involved with someone the relationship is likely to last – even if does seem to take forever to start! Those of you already involved may find that the relationship either gets more serious or ends: depending on where you are at within it.
The period from the middle of July until early August 2010 looks like a period of time when a sudden or unexpected development involving another person will mean that you will have to work on restructuring your relationship with one of your children, or another loved one. Those of you involved in anything creative may have a sudden burst of creativity energy or an unusual one! This period of time is one to break out of your old ways of being creative and/or showing or receiving love and affection.
Another period of time when these energies are particularly active is during the second half of August 2010. It seems that there will be an intensely emotional turning point involving the relationships and/or areas of life previously mentioned that will perhaps mean taking into account the different values or beliefs of another person… in other words there are likely to be tough compromises to be made! Another way this energy could be experienced is through having to deal with a difficult financial matter involving one of your children and/or another loved one. Although a potentially difficult time, this energy brings the opportunity to reach a cross-road and turning point with these relationships and issues.
Another energy shift happening this year is a big one and only comes around every 84 years or so… it is in effect from your birthday until the middle of August 2010, and will be back again in your next forecast period to stay for about 7 years; so this small period of time now is a taste of what to expect then!
This major energy shift strongly suggests a change in your social life: it is likely over the period of time mentioned that new friendships formed will be with people who are radically different to those you would normally associate with, and that open up a world of new ways of looking at life. These new relationships are also likely to uncover aspects of yourself that are yet to be discovered and enjoyed!
Where it comes to groups you belong to it seems that there are likely to be changes to the way these are organized or you could find yourself involved in radically changing these. Alternatively, you may decide to join a group that shares an unusual interest.
The children of other people are another way this energy can be experienced. By this I mean adopted or fostered children that become like your own, or a son/daughter-in-law. It seems that a new person that fits this description is likely to be the source of surprising developments: perhaps one of your children will bring home a partner that is very different than the type of person that they would usually be involved with. Some of you may adopt or foster a child over the coming years.
Early April 2011 sees the biggest energy shift of all this year. Although it will only be around for a few months after this, it will return later on in full force: the importance of this first short visit is that it is likely to give you a taste of what to expect when it returns again in your next forecast period.
It strongly suggests that your life will take on a spiritual, artistic and/or altruistic path and that you are likely to experience changes to your vocational pursuits and other activities outside of your home. More about this in your next forecast!
