This month ends a long cycle in your relationships and begins another. We might be talking about something that dates back eight to 10 years. That's quite a while, especially with time speeding along in dog years. Plenty has happened to you; and as you take a step forward, it's time for a review of what this past decade of relationships has been about. Consider the people, consider the patterns, and consider how your expectations have evolved over time. One hint I can offer you is that as time has gone on, you've made peace with what a quirky individual you are. You've figured out that your priorities are different, your values are different, and that your drive to be your individual self—almost at all costs—is genuinely unique. This discovery may have come gradually, or it may have come all at once (of course, after building up for a while). Now comes a kind of summation of all your progress and experience. If you feel like you're heading into unknown and uncertain territory, you're in the right place. Yet, despite some sense of intensity and living on the edge, you have every reason to be confident. I would sum it up simply in a few words: you've reached a stage of life where a real exchange is possible. That translates to: give consciously, and receive graciously.
