This month, it won't just be the lower temperatures outside that will encourage us make the utmost of our home-life and intimate relations. We will be disinclined to frolic around outside among crowds of people, but will prefer to stay at home to enjoy the time spent with our loved-ones and rest in a calm environment.
This period of withdrawal should also give us an opportunity for introspection, with the aim of identifying or re-identifying our fundamental values. There's a possibility we have somewhat lost our bearings while becoming absorbed in a variety of tasks. More recently, we will have had the chance to review our own personal story. It will now be time to identify solid foundations for forging ahead and taking our rightful place in the world, fully in tune with our true selves. In this context, our working life should be put on hold as far as possible. It may be that our direction will need to be reviewed. Above all, we will need to do what we can to find a new balance between our life in private and our life in public, between our obligations and responsibilities, and our need for relaxation and intimacy. Often, life leads us to the point where we feel divorced from ourselves. November will offer us the possibility of reconciliaition with our fundamental selves, or whatever else, an awareness of the need to find the means to get there.
