During this period your thoughts and mental energy might become rigid and critical, bringing you to narrow thinking.

You might find it difficult to communicate your thoughts and feelings and might isolate yourself from daily contacts.

However, it is a good time to concentrate your mental energy into a single task, because your analytical and critical qualities are now much more developed, but be careful to not narrow your view even more.

Now you want to seek mental stability instead of strong emotions or wide intellectual views.

Don't strain your mental energy too much, because the best projects were born from small, but focused ideas growing step by step.

While it's a great time for the professional field, be careful when making definitive decisions on the financial side by investing only in what you have thoroughly examined.

Remember: focus is important, but we must always be open to new experiences and new ways of seeing the world.
Being critical is useful if it doesn't turn into narrow thinking.

Learn from your mistakes and try to accept the opinions of someone else when it's constructive.

A lesson in the consequences of hasty words and reckless actions may be in order at this time. You may be forced to slow down and reconsider your views, plans and communication with others.

You may also have to initiate discussions of a more serious nature, or make plans for tedious, mundane or uncomfortable future events such as end of life care or insurance plans. While your mind may want to dart to more interesting and stimulating subjects, you will be repeatedly pulled back to deal with the tasks at hand.
