Yet you’re entering an ideal cycle to explore and discuss such matters – what you have, what you’re gaining, and what that means on a personal level for you. You might discover you’ve been giving too much of your time (to your boss, mother, spouse, or friend) and can think and talk it over in weeks ahead.

Consider your relation to place, improvements that can be made that impact your levels of comfort, security, and address you feeling safe in your space; your relationship and boundaries with parents might be ready for enhancement too. What would sweeten your experience of ‘home’. 

From the superficial or surface titivations of interiors to overcoming sensitivities, knowing what you deeply desire from family. Pull back to appreciate and elevate your foundations, roots, and relationship to where you’re from.
