A few obstacles to surmount

The adage that one door closes while another door opens is one I’m sure you know well. In theory, it sounds viable, practical and even doable. In reality, it doesn’t always feel so pleasant. How do you decide which door to close? How do you know you even want that door to close? If you do get a choice about which door to close, how do you know it’s the right one?

Sometimes you get to choose, sometimes you don’t. Sometimes life just has a way of disentangling connections and situations in order for new ones to be established. For many, the past couple of weeks have been tough both emotionally and physically, especially if the bonds that connect you to something or someone have loosened.

This week begins with a dramatic total Solar Eclipse in Aries. On paper at least, this eclipse has the components to really thrust you forward into a new direction. While you might be eager to start something new and leave the old behind, there are a few obstacles to surmount first.

Before you venture into the unknown, don’t just think about what you want now, also think about what you want most. Problem being, in order to get what you want most, you have to heal the wounds you’ve been avoiding.
