It seems very few like where they're at right now. Let's say this is the case. Do you feel you're headed in the right direction?  Or do you feel you need to shift your focus and head somewhere new?

I firmly believe that everything happens to us for a reason, and if we're on a path that feels wrong, we have the choice to change our aim for a better outcome. I really don't like where I am now, but if I hadn't gone through it, I wouldn't be so sure of what I did want/need in my future. It's shaped me to know myself better and aim for my higher good.

I have some important things that are hanging in the air and I'm attached to those things, a lot. But, as much as I love them, I feel the pressure coming from it and lately, I'm asking myself: how much does my peace at night cost, and is it really worth it? I don't like this direction but it's here, it real and it's happening and I can't longer deny that things between my family and me will improve. They will not. We are who we are, and no matter how much I try to prove that there is something worth fighting for, there is always one person who doesn't think the same. Yes, I need to shift my focus and focus on what makes me happy and pay the cost of having a peaceful and calm night.

I feel like I'm going in a circle to large extent. I hope I'm not!  But I sort of am. Because it's garden season and what will it be next year?  Garden season?

Ha ha

But I do feel there is a significant chance that society is repairing. You can't hear about it on the news but when you're actually talking to people and interacting with them, they are not at all insane and full hate, though we're constantly told they are.

Time and direction or orientation will be squirrely with Saturn in Pisces. And we're all connected.  So try this out...

I can be headed in the right direction if the people I hang with are headed in the right direction, because it's like a wave.

There is an often used analogy around turning a big ship around. How it takes time, which is true.   It seems something like this is underway. I want and try to be part of it, but turning around is not an exact direction so really it's like trying to find the tail of the donkey, post spin! 

I always liked that game so there is that!

@elsa Circles are the way of life! They are perfect. I think it's a good thing. 

I'm reminded of a game from my childhood, that takes place in a pool or a lake (any body of water that is not already moving - so not a river or the ocean). In about chest deep water, a dozen or so kids, or people, all hold hands in a circle. Everyone walks in the same direction (clockwise or counterclockwise doesn't matter) and moves around the circle several times. Then on the count of 3, everyone lifts up their feet and lets the swirling force carry everyone round in the continuous motion, floating and still connected! until the circle disintegrates into a less perfect shape... It's fun! 

That reminds me of my favorite quote: "Big whirls have little whirls that feed on their velocity, and little whirls have lesser whirls and so on to viscosity."—Lewis Fry Richardson.

Eta: I'm imagining everyone moving in the right direction together, and the circle catches others in its beneficial orbit.

Yes I am. This is one of those years that I’ll probably always look back on as being the turning point year for me where I knew that I was on the right path. I know this because of the way things feel effortless. I mean, I am putting in effort for sure, but the effort doesn’t feel like I’m going up against anything.
