Not everything comes easily for you in February—and it’s not supposed to. If you’re feeling tested, you know that you’re doing something right. The yin and yang energies in the world don’t want to balance right now, but you seek balance. This means you might be struggling with some big life decisions that disturb the very foundation of your optimism. You may be reflecting on the very person you thought you were over, finally realizing some vital things that your younger self didn’t know. More than that, the temptation to regret some decisions might feel too strong to resist.
Remember that everything looks different in hindsight. You tend to know a lot more about the consequences of your actions when you look at them from the position of working with their burdens. The issues are there to make you fly. Forgive your younger self this February. Only when you do so can you honestly—and joyfully—start thinking about where you want to go.
