Much of your story for the approaching seasons surrounds how you define yourself in the context of others, and how they define themselves in the context of you. You have opportunities to come to many new understandings about yourself and the world, but rather than consciously “deciding what you are,” the greater gift will be about seeing, through a process of elimination, who you are not.
You can safely let the tensions of the week go. It seems like people around you were feeling a bit revved up and expressive at the same time, and their reactions may have left you feeling some shade of insecure. Or rather, they may have affirmed certain pre-existing insecurities you’ve been experiencing, which in turn date back to old material.
You can take a vacation this month without taking a day off of work, buying an airplane ticket, or putting more than 25 miles on your car. You’re in one of those cosmic nanophases where you find things; where they find you; where you just bump into what you want and need. None of this is an accident.
I hope you’re not feeling left out of the action. On one level it may seem like you’re the odd person out of the game, but there’s something to be said for not having to pick sides. You have plenty of influence at the moment. Rather than doubt this fact, I suggest you look for confirmation — but don’t waste too much time doing that, either.
