Breaking through your illusions so you can identify your dreams is important now. Dreams are real even if they are still just in your mind. Illusions are dreams that have no reality to them. There is nothing wrong with having illusions but it is good to identify them and set them free.
You have entered a rather complex period. You feel the need and desire to retreat. At least you want to lay low. You may feel impatient and short tempered. Disturbing energies may be met with a sharp retort. This will become increasingly true this week and over the next several. Seek refuge.
You have been called within. Answering this call is actually your job right now. It may not be your employment, but it is important work. The goal is to feel grounded, centered, realistic and healthy. Breaking through old habit patterns so you can create new and better ones is another key feature of this work.
