There is a turning point that recharges you and eventually brings success. This is associated with the turning of darkness back toward the light — the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year, the day when darkness begins to decrease and the hours of daylight start to increase. This is the beginning of a turnaround — a time for letting go of the old and making way for the new; a time of new beginnings. And it starts with rest.
Don’t move too fast right now. The new momentum is just beginning. The turnaround demands that your energy be recharged by adequate rest, so that your life force is not spent prematurely. This principle of hibernation, of allowing energy to renew itself and be strengthened by rest, applies to many situations: recuperation after an illness; the slow return of trust after a period of estrangement; the careful development of new relationships after a splitting apart of old ones.
