There is a great saying that suggests that even having dreams at all is positive, regardless of whether they are realized. Maybe you can do one better and realize both.
Getting in touch more fully with who you are as an individual, continues. This may well include travel interests. At deeper levels, there is a push to break through fears and insecurities. Mercury retrograde in Taurus has perhaps stirred things up in the subconscious, but not quite enough to be conscious. Now you know why.
Who are you now and what do you want? Perhaps you want answers, direction, inspiration, purpose or all of the above. If your answer is none of the above you are probably very in-tune. At best you are enjoying a peaceful, meditative time. In the deeper end, a soul-searching journey is underway. New alliances beckon.
The time has come to enter new territory. Yet ironically, it may also manifest as a journey down memory lane. Good thing there are two of you so you can enjoy both directions. Weaving the experiences of both into a new synthesis will prove inspiring and may even manifest as inventiveness and opportunity.
