This week begins with either you feeling as if you are on an emotional roller coaster ride. Perhaps you will be dealing with someone else whose feeling change quickly and who may not think through the long-term effects of their actions. It might be a good time for self-reliance and making a move to take charge of your own future. If you are craving independence now is the time to put things in motion to begin securing the foundation for that. You will need to act with self-discipline to achieve your independence. It is time to pay attention to your body, the earth, and nature there could be messages in the physical world that will help you. It may feel like there are forces against you no matter where you turn right now. You are advised to face up to the challenges, you may even be required to be aggressive or defiant. If you are confident in your perspective then don’t back down. If you find yourself feeling stuck because of all the challenges ask yourself what you get out of remaining “stuck” and what you could gain by moving forward. You may find yourself needing to think in a new way. It is quite likely that the limitation you feel is self-imposed. You may be thinking that you need to continue dealing with a situation because you are needed. Or because if you don’t you will lose something. In this case, you will need to tune in to your heart’s desire but pay attention to logic. Ask yourself if your head and your heart are united. Sometimes making a choice for independence causes us to choose one path and sacrifice another. Your thoughts about a situation are as important as the actions you take. This week is for new beginnings.
