This year for you
Although this is not a particularly strong or active period you may experience an increase in energy compared with recent years. Like someone slowly awakening after a period of slumber, it takes a while to get going again. When looked from an external perspective, from the outside, it may appear that nothing much is happening. Nevertheless, this is a time of great creative potential since it contains within it the seeds of the whole cycle. After a quiet period, you should gradually start to feel more energy and enthusiasm as your life slowly begins to gain momentum again. Rest continues to be important since lack of activity on the surface is necessary to conserve energy for increased activity within. This can be a solitary or even lonely time as you separate yourself from something or someone, usually connected with the old cycle that you are leaving behind. There may be some goodbyes, some heartfelt, some long overdue. On a spiritual, intellectual and creative level this can represent an emptying as you say goodbye to an old lifestyle, old attitudes or opinions that have served their purpose but which need to be discarded, replaced or renewed before your new cycle gets underway. Because this phase is concerned with conserving energy, resources and economizing, this can be a good period for accumulating wealth, goods and possessions. However, the more worried you feel the more likely you are to hoard. Greed and possessiveness now may be due to uncertainty and anxiety if you feel you can never have enough of the sense of security money and worldly possessions bring. Nevertheless, as you gradually regain your energy and enthusiasm, the more you can be cheerful and look to the future with optimism, the more you will find that things go well for you.
