We have previously written on issues arising during the ages 38 to 44, but it deserves more attention. To see our previous posts visit http://holmastrology.blogspot.ca/ or www.facebook.com/HolmAstrology
This is the turning point where one moves from early adulthood into a more mature individual. It is a time of reconciling with oneself and usually we are pretty comfortable with who we are at this point in our lives. This is a time when we are restructuring our association with ourselves on a more profound level. A sense of individualization is occurring at a rapid pace, due to the major influences taking place in our lives. We are experiencing transiting Saturn in trine to its natal position and Neptune in square to its natal position. These signify inner transformations and a realistic approach to who we are.
There may even be a feeling of urgency as our quest in life, our ego and the ongoing search for “who am I?” are undergoing alterations in the consciousness of those that feel they need answers. There is no formal training when it comes to dealing with the midlife crisis and no one can say they are prepared, particularly because no one knows exactly what to expect. Each individual goes through their own personal crisis followed by an awakening period. This is a time of great soul searching and a desire for inner change which often coincides with outer change, as one affects the other.
The body is also undergoing physical changes during this time, and those who have placed too much attention on physical appearance may experience depression due to the reflection they are seeing in the mirror. Many who have placed importance on appearance will go deep within to find out what they actually have to offer, as the appearance previously has held an elevated position in their lives. The ego is actually in a somewhat delicate state as the inner self gains supremacy and control, at least for those who are searching for something more in life.
This is often considered a turning point as we truly begin to question who we truly are and relentlessly search for answers. Many turn to deeper subjects such as Astrology, Religion, Spiritualism and/or Mysticism to find answers to some truly profound questions. This is an awakening stage for many who have been wrapped up in the material world and are left feeling empty and want to experience more meaningfulness in their lives.
Doors that have been boarded up are now beginning to open and a deep restlessness is awakening within. The search continues and those longing for answers begin to question their existence. This search activates the opening of channels within as well as awakens a more intimate relationship with the inner self.
