You are at a kind of crossroads where you must decide what direction to go in. This is a tipping point where a situation has built up for some time and you're at the point where you must do something about it or with it. This is likely to be perceived as a problem, perhaps even a crisis, although as you dig into it you will likely find that the problem is really made up of several layers of cause-and-effect. What you think is the cause of the problem may only be the result of some factor that lies hidden behind it.

How you respond to the situation will greatly affect what happens from here. The potential for making a bad thing worse is definitely in the air, but it's not a certainty by any means. It could become amplified, complicated or intensified if you become stuck in the desire for revenge, retaliation or conquest. Responding with awareness is crucial in order to move forward constructively and cleanly, without a lot of baggage to weigh you down. Being aware of what you really want, what is in your best and highest interests, will help you stay focused.

The key is to use only as much force, power and defiance as is needed to accomplish what you truly are aiming for. It's best not to get sidetracked – keep your eye on the prize that you genuinely want. Give yourself permission to say "yes" or "no" when you need to. Listen to your instincts and your impulses, and then decide with your rational mind how to respond. Courage is invaluable, but there's also no shame in waiting until you understand the best move before you take action. Do frequent reality checks to make sure you're seeing the situation as clearly as possible – remember there are multiple layers of reality here, and what seems to be what you're looking for might actually lead to bigger problems. If that happens, find your centre again and reach for a deeper understanding. This time has great potential to start something new and exciting, so it's best not to jump to conclusions or go charging off before you're ready.

This is a good time to dig deep into your life, your feelings, your motives, your situation, to discover what these are really made of. You may find something quite different underneath what they appear to be on the surface. For example, anger is often driven by fear or sadness. Depression or indifference can often conceal anger or rage. Generosity or even love can sometimes hide a fear of being ignored or disliked. It's important to identify and understand what is pushing up from under your surface feelings and perceptions, since that is what will ultimately steer your course. If you're driving on a flat tire, it won't matter how much you compensate for the wobbly steering by holding the steering wheel tighter or changing speed – none of this will put air back in the tire. And if you can solve the underlying issue, you won't have the surface problem anymore.

The thing is, we tend to cling to our problems. If you've been dealing with a long-time issue, it gets pretty exhausting after a while. It can seem like you have no energy to spare to look into any underlying problem, so you pour your energy into "managing" the problem, which only gets worse and drains more of your energy. You might also be afraid that what you'll find down there is an even worse problem that can't be fixed and now you have a bigger monster on your hands that can't be controlled. The saddest thing is that there is a more authentic and beautifully human You hidden underneath all the fear and shame and self-doubt. That's why it's important to keep finding the courage to dig down below it – otherwise, your efforts to be free of it will ultimately keep you trapped.

The digging that you do now and over the next several weeks will have far-reaching implications and influence. This is a process of transformation, where you can bring out your true, beautiful self by shedding outer layers of your self-image. Be careful about finding or manufacturing what looks like a more authentic self, which is really just another layer of artificial self-image. That doesn't make you a bad person, but if you aren't able to dig down to the bedrock, it might indicate you aren't ready. That's okay too. As you work with a mask of who you want to be, this can help you believe there is a real self underneath that, which is worth believing in. Keep the faith, but also watch out for false hope that can keep you lost in a detour off your main road.
