This is a time when you may experience an odd mixture of inspiring potential and daunting conflict. Both of these are your allies, even though it might not seem so at first. Your job is to cultivate as much awareness of what is happening as you can, and to use that awareness to determine a way to respond to the situation that is creative and cooperative. Your response also needs to be nurturing – certainly toward yourself, but also of others, even those who seem like they don't deserve it. People often become highly argumentative when they feel they're not being heard or they're being dismissed or ignored.
You might encounter someone like this, or you might even behave like this yourself. The thing is, there's more to the outer behaviour than meets the eye. Knowing what is motivating it, triggering it or pushing it will be potent knowledge—not to blame them or overpower them or shame them or judge them, but to understand. Use awareness and empathy to listen and truly understand without judging. You don't have to agree with them—or let them off the hook if they're genuinely being a jerk—but if you really want to shift the energy between the two of you then one of you needs to take the initiative to do something different that doesn't just provoke more warfare. And since you're the one who's reading this.....
In order to gain a better understanding of what happens when you are in conflict with another person or a situation, it might be necessary to delve far into the past, whether that's your personal past, your cultural roots, your spiritual traditions or even the story of your ancestors. It's very possible that you once had access to knowledge and wisdom that could help you in the present, which was somehow forgotten but can still be accessed if you reach back for it. There is an abundance of creativity, emotional sensitivity, empathy, imagination and practical ways to put them all into productive use, but you'll have to work to access it. Once you have started to master how to deal with the conflicts, problems, obstacles, turmoil or disruption in your life, those abundant gifts will flow much easier into your reach. It's not that hard – you only have to choose a different response or a different path or a different way of looking at the situation. Choose something new and different that involves cooperation, negotiation, waiting before reacting, or even just having some faith that it will be okay, even if you don't know what that will look like yet.

This is a time to stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and beyond the limits of your knowledge. But this isn't just about adding ideas, information, facts and theories to your repertoire of learning, although that is certainly part of it. Instead, this is about pushing yourself to a broader understanding about what is happening in the world around you, in your personal life and in your inner experiences. The bottom line: what you think you know about something might suddenly turn out to be completely wrong.
This is not about second-guessing yourself or shredding your self-confidence in the name of perfect accuracy. It is, however, about expanding your horizons by questioning what (you think) you know and being open to seeing it with different eyes. Some of this will require the use of imagination – allowing yourself to stray beyond the boundaries of logic and into the fluid realm of intuition, dreams and inspiration. Watch for new insights into your motives, opinions and intentions, and especially what lies within these that may be hidden or obscured. Learning is often simply a method of sharpening your focus to see more clearly what was there all along – clear seeing, which is the meaning of clairvoyance: the ability to perceive in some way other than the five physical senses. So watch for flashes of psychic perception and intuitive insight.
On the other hand, the problem with going beyond consensual knowledge and perception is that you can start to lose a reliable frame of reference, which means your data and conclusions could be wrong. That's when it's helpful to be armed with facts, information, details, theories, concepts and knowledge that can be used as a reality check. It's not enough to have these and decide that you have enough – your job is to find the greater meaning, significance and implications of your experiences and ideas, within the context of the more fundamental information you have. Treat what you find as information to add to the whole of your knowledge. It's also important to find ways to act on the information and knowledge you gather, but choose your actions carefully. The repercussions could have a much bigger ripple effect than you realise. Aim to act with as much personal integrity and self-honesty as you can muster. This can be a chance to use your new understanding to sever your attachment to old events, beliefs and wounds that have festered in your spirit.
