You have the potential to reach great heights right now. If you can overcome the temptation to overindulge, or learn not to get lost in your ego, this will be a time of powerful transformation.

Your sense of identity is shifting and in some ways you are coming into your own power. You may feel like the Reluctant Hero, setting out on a new quest with apprehension.

At this time in your journey you may be called to leave behind whatever you have considered your ‘home base’ including setting out on a solitary path away from friends and family who have anchored you before.

You are likely to feel enough excitement and drive to move forward in spite of apprehension. You may seek a new career or take on a new lifestyle which requires more autonomy as well as creativity.

You may also have to ‘fake it ‘til you make it’, relying on your charisma and confidence to set the foundation for the genuine expression of resilience and power that you now learn to wield.

This is a fortunate time to develop your talents and express yourself through creative endeavors. Others will see the best of who you are and you will become more comfortable with leadership and self direction.

You may be sabotaging your growth at this time by sticking with what is familiar. Your creativity is stunted and you may be overemphasizing aspects of your personality with which you most comfortably identify, while not allowing yourself to fully blossom.

Lessons abound as do opportunities to expand beyond your comfort zone and even transform personally. You are on the verge of a major rebirth which will redefine your path and your sense of identity.

Rather than moving forward at this time, however, you are likely to be tempted to remain stuck. Restlessness at work indicates you have outgrown your current role but are underselling yourself to avoid the fear of change and the unknown.

For the same reason you may also be playing small in relationships.

Let the tension between where you have already been and where you could be headed be an intuitive signal that you are destined for more than what you have already accomplished and allow yourself to grow into your full potential.

You are likely to have opportunities to shine and flourish as a creative individual, yet will have to make some adjustments to your expectations. An opportunity to showcase your talents, for example, may be accompanied by some stressful elements. Perhaps your band has finally booked a gig in a high exposure venue, but you won’t be paid as much as you think your work is worth.

Perhaps you are going to have a chance to give a presentation to your team at work, but you have to work with a coworker who doesn’t share your work ethic.

At this time your best option is to compromise to some degree. You may feel the need to bite the bullet and try to aim for whatever gains you can make under the circumstances while accepting some conditions which present a nuisance or slight setback.
