What once you may have kept to yourself, it is time to exchange with others who have been in the same situation.

The one-size-fits-all philosophy will see some serious setbacks as quality and quantity part company and leveling bureaucratic structures get shaken up and shaken down. This time it is likely to see the latter, when progress is not to be resisted or it will overcome you by sheer force. This does not mean you have to get on board of every new brainstorm, but if you see a juggernaut coming, either climb on or get out of the way.

MidLifeCrisis is when see the Truth. Midlifecrisis is another way of saying - see the truth - face the truth - deal with the truth - the truth will set you free. Prior to the age of 29 - most people are adaptable - when they see an answer is NO - or - something is blocked - they accept it easily. And the refusal to ACCEPT changes is reason why people get "stuck" and "frustrated" is because they're refusing to accept the truth. When relationships fall apart because one has gone-off with a new lover - it's a truth - that is sometimes very difficult to accept - but the sooner you accept it - the quicker you too can move-on.

So the happier you are when it happens - the happier you are because you're embracing the changes - the more you're in sync with exactly what life wants you to be. When you embraced your digital camera, iphone and emails - you didn't even think how much money it would save you in postage and film for your camera - and yet it's changed all our lives for the better. To experience a lie - to find the truth - and - then to set yourself FREE - is truly liberating. The biggest problem is loosing ambition and faith. An indication that you're going through a Midlifecrisis is that you've lost ambition and faith in life that good things are still to come You see - your mind has been conditioned from an early age to want something - with a goal and ambition - it's the goal that you set yourself and you're determination to get it - is why you achieved it.
The problem comes is that you've arrived and you're not happy with what you've got. Midlifecrisis could be when realize everything you wanted you'll never achieve - or more than likely - it is defined by everything you've achieved you don't want anymore - it doesn't do it for you - it's empty and meaningless. Do you remember as a child or teenager how you had an obsession to want something - and - then when you got "it" - you were really disappointed - you see as a child you ACCEPT it - but as an adult - people find it difficult to accept it.
When you've found yourself - that's when you'll unlock - what works for you and what doesn't work for you. When you've found yourself - that's when you will come alive again with vitality and energy. You see these 4 strong Midlifecrisis energies that create BIG changes - means - all you need to do is see what needs changing - see what direction your life needs to take - and then you will UNLOCK the full potential that's sitting within you. Likewise you too - when you get the moment of dead-end - all you need to do is realize you've gone along a dead-end pathway - now is time to RESET and RESYNC your life with the true real version of yourself.
Find yourself by going-backwards and realizing what's been wrong and what's been right in your life - what's created success in your life and what's created failure in your life - and then - use all your wisdom and experiences to get "it" right. The good news is that you will arrive at your destined destination sooner or later - and thanks to Saturn in Capricorn until December - you will do it via really good people in your life. However, you should remember that good people in your life should be TWO-WAY relationships - if you don't respect them - if you don't care for them - if you don't give them any positive energy - as you want them to care about you - you will loose some of your friends.
Indeed Saturn in Capricorn defines relationships - the people who are genuinely good for you - as you are genuinely good for them. I have to add that unfortunately the "internet" creates a world of ONE-WAY relationships - were people take from others and give nothing in return. That too is a karmic lesson - so if you've become an "internet" addict that just takes from the "internet" and gives nothing back - then you can expect to learn about "relationships" during Saturn in Capricorn - as you too will change and learn to give to others as they give to you.
Gratitude is the way forwards - continuity to life. If you're in a state of frustrating stagnation and at a dead-end - stop complaining about it - get yourself out of it Being grateful and saying "thank you" for the gift of life is the way to unblock blockages. Ofcourse - we can all see the obvious - "sell the house at any price - get out of it - if it's so bad for you".
Unfortunately people are stubborn - they've created bad karma for themselves which makes them stubborn and fixed - refusing to change. Hence they inflict their own pain. I had another reader who's husband was constantly mean to her and forgot her birthday for 3 years - until - finally she realized the she needed to make a change and divorce him. I'm sure many of you - would have dumped the grumpy mean man after the 1st birthday he forgot! I had an Indian businessman who hated his business - always complaining about the hard-work he had to do - and he never liked the people who worked for you - so destiny - took the business away from him.
It happened because his aura and mind wasn't happy with his business. At a dead-end - search for the way-out. The way forward from a dead-end is to reset yourself to become alive again and to be connected to everyone that makes you feel alive. The truth is that was taking years to arrive at the moment of a dead-end - so it shouldn't be such a BIG surprise when it happens. Even if it comes as a surprise to you - it has been in the process of happening over many years.
So when it happens - you should be delighted and feel totally liberated it's finally happened. When you feel STUCK in a negative situation - when you feel you've arrived at a dead-end - the only way out is to keep moving forwards. Find a way - there's always continuity to life - there's always an answer - there's never a dead-end - so keep moving - the internet has lots of answers.
Indeed - the truth is you've searched and found this website and you're reading this to inform you that you're not at a DEAD-END - so listen to advice of someone who has been through lots of changes - and that's keep moving. Often people make the stupid mistake of thinking of the negativity instead of finding a positive way out. Like a Dr acknowledges the illness - the Dr doesn't keep on talking about the illness - the Dr works on finding the cure - finding the positive answers is what you need. So whatever trouble life is giving you - it's the illness - not the cure - your midlifecrisis is telling you to search for the cure.
The cure is to feel alive with optimism. Collectively everyone everywhere in the world will be experiencing transformation - searching for "cure" for humanity. Whilst "some" idiots still believe the only answer is WWIII and an end-of-the-world - the truth is humanity is being driven forwards to find the answers - instead of creating more problems and instead of complaining of the situation - the outer planets - will ensure everyone concentrates on finding the cure instead of creating the illness. The illness is defined by something that's not right - something that's wrong - something that makes you feel your life is a dead-end - whereas the cure is defined by something that's right - something that gives you hope for the future - something that makes you look-forwards with happiness - something that makes you want to live life with an aliveness.
Indeed, the World - Mother Earth - will appear to be going throught it's own Midlifecrisis - which will awaken all of humanity to face the truth - that some things are unacceptable and wrong - some things will have to be faced and confronted - some things in all our lives will have to be changed.
The quicker we accept the need to change - the quicker we change and adapt - the quicker humanity gets the cure and begins to live with optimism instead of continuing along a pathway that's creating the illness and pessimistic fears of end-of-the-world. We've all been through a midlifecrisis.
Your choice to come out of it happy or grumpy! Unfortunately, so many people get so hurt by the inexplicably strong aspects that are forcing changes that some people get stuck into a negativity that sends fixes them into a life of being grumpy and miserable forever. But - there's no need for sadness - when you realize that life is giving you a new life. It can only give you the new life when you've let-go of the old life. Being liberated in your mind is all you need to do. There's a lot of people who go through a traumatic midlifecrisis will an illness - the moment they get cured - they come-out of it with a joy of life - a sincere happiness to be alive - and - a gratitude for the gift of life.
Hopefully, you won't have to through that - but the end-goal after any midlifecrisis - is to be a different person and appreciate the gift of life. We've all been through something BIG during midlifecrisis - everyone gets something - it's fact of life - and - on the other side is a much better quality of life - true happiness - acceptance and appreciation of the truly good things in life - whilst simultaneously it creates a sense of honesty - hopefully you'll say - " I was so immature and silly - because prior to seeing the TRUTH that I've seen - I was stupid and ignorant ".
Thereafter it is the power of truth and honesty that will set you free and ensure you stay of the pathway of freedom. And keep away from anything that makes you feel DEAD. It sounds obvious - but many people get STUCK in negativity that they forget to move-forwards towards a new life The 3 Midlifecrisis Astrological Aspects.
The 3 Midlifecrisis astrological energies - affecting everyone sooner or later It's complex because it depends on all your planets. I'd suggest you study your chart and realize what is being affected by the 4 outer planets of Saturn in Sagittarius - Uranus in Aries - Neptune in Pisces - Pluto in Capricorn - because each planet is affecting and will continue to affect you UNTIL you realize the message it has for you - and UNTIL you change what life is asking you to change. The energy of the planet won't go-away until you deal with it - and life will ensure everyone deals with it. Some of the changes you'll love and will appear to be miracles - whilst other changes will challenge you - until you change.
The most remarkable destined events will be created because suddenly you'll wake-up and see something with a truthful clarity - that will make you say " oh yes - now I see life clearly " - and - it make you know exactly what to do next - but if you need some help to understand when these moments will happen - why not ask me? The Astrological Midlifecrisis moments defined Transit of Pluto squares Your Natal Pluto. Transit of Neptune squares Your Natal Neptune.
Transit of Uranus opposes Your Natal Uranus. Pluto in Capricorn. One of the most fascinating aspects of understanding "astrology" is knowing that there are destined changes coming - and they will be real and affecting everyone on Earth - and yet the "not knowing" exactly how they're going to unfold to create the results that "destiny" has planned for each of us - both individually and collectively is the most curious aspect of "astrology" of the outer planets.
Astrology means you get to see the destination and know that life-on-earth has continuity, meaning and purpose - you get to see the rough pathway to get there - but due to the outer planets annual retrogrades - going "forward" always means going "backwards" - and in fact going "backwards" is vitally karmically necessary - before you can actually go forward permanently.
Unfortunately, when it comes to generational astrological energies - many "old-fashioned" people REFUSE to accept that parameters of the fundamental ways of life has changed - they're still living in the "past" and hoping that they can sustain a life that no longer exists. Meanwhile, everyone has been adapting to "life" by - a method of what I call unpredictable - that's because Uranus in Aries is cleverly twisting and turning as it manipulates changes - as it waits for specific moments when it either creates sudden unexpected surprises - or it takes people to a limit of stress that then forces changes - because they can't live in the "past" anymore.

But the essence of what's happening to everyone - is that it makes everyone feel unstable with a nervous "Aries" feeling - that you're just about "surviving" - that's UNTIL you've adapted, moved, changed and allow Uranus in Aries to do what your DESTINY wants you to do. Soon DESTINY will give everyone no choice - and everyone will be forced to concede the need for "change" and accept changes as "progress" in the world for the collective benefit of everyone on Earth. Indeed, it's a fact of life - the constant cycle amongst humanity - to make mistakes - and then be forced to correct and undo the mistakes.
When you accept that everything PRIOR to January - was part of an immature version of "you" - you comprehend that your destined job is to use your newfound clarity and wisdom to redefine - what was RIGHT and what was WRONG - and therefore define your future by keeping in your life everything that is truthful, correct and right whilst simultaneously deleting everything that's karmically wrong for you. The truth is although it seems that "humanity is collectively slow, stubborn and lazy to change" - we aren't - for everyone is actually living in SYNC with the OUTER planets.
So whenever you have moments of stubbornness and total laziness - don't feel guilty - for you're in SYNC with time. However, I should mention that as - you become more spiritually enlightened and awakened - you will have many more IMPORTANT KARMIC moments - and therefore you'll remember more - even so - your life won't happen any quicker - and attempting to push to make things happen - will fail because collectively humanity is moving forward together slowly.
If the events happened quickly then you wouldn't be able to cope with them. So "Time" is created to gently prepare you - guide you - and lead you to make the karmic changes - collectively with everyone else on Earth. The 1st stage will be completed by - when everyone realizes the need and actually begins the process of change - through an awakening of TRUTH and realization of LIES - but profoundly stirred by "enlightenment" and awakened "realization" of the preciousness of time - and the precious gift of life.
Because it is the energy of LIES that creates instability and negativity.
