We are going to take a look at what is called the beginning mid-life turning point at ages 38-44. This is a turning point when we grow from early adulthood personality into a more evolving personality--reconciling and developing into a personality with which we are more comfortable. This is a time when we are restructuring ourselves on a more profound level. A sense of individualization is starting to shine through 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 truly are.
There may even be a feeling of urgency with our quest at this point in our lives. Our ego and the ongoing search for “who am I?” are undergoing alterations in our consciousness, for those individuals that feel they need answers.
There are neither formal guidelines nor a book called “Mid-life Crises 101”. No one can say they are prepared, particularly because no one knows exactly what to expect. Each individual goes through their own personal challenges and then an awakening takes place. This is a time of great soul searching and a desire for inner change which often coincides with outer change, as one seems to affect the other.
The body is also undergoing physical changes during this time in our lives, and those who have placed too much attention on physical appearance may become depressed with what they see in the mirror. Many will now go deep within to find out what they actually have to offer, as the appearance has been held in an elevated position most of 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.
This is often considered a turning point as we truly begin to question who we are and relentessly want answers. Many turn to deeper subjects such as astrology and the mystical side of life, furthering their pursuit and hoping to find answers to some truly profound questions. This is an awakening stage as many who have been wrapped up in the material world now somehow come up feeling empty and want greater meaning to their lives.
Doors that have been locked 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. They open the channels from within and make more intimate contact with the inner self. The process has begun. We raise our consciousness and continue on with our mission.
At age 42, we are also experiencing the Uranus opposition with itself. This intensifies the search and often we reach for something new to bring to the forefront of life. Some reach out radical solutions and this is when people become bored with life and want something that is exciting and exhilarating. There is a bit of an eccentric flavour bursting within our personality. Many find this newly found personality which is developing within reaching out to find satisfaction beyond the normal material confines of life. Their outlook becomes a bit erratic and different.
These life expressions are sprung on us and we make untimely changes that will affect those around us. This is often quite disruptive for family members that are accustom to life being steady, solid and secure. Some leave their marriage partners and start a new life. In many cases, the change is sudden and comes without much warning.
For those that have not yet experienced this life event, you should be ready for change and transformation as this is a very intense period. Be ready for disruption in all that if normal. You will welcome change and that which is new.
