This is a period in which your attention will tend to be turned inward and you will be quite content with the simple pleasures of life. You will be inclined to spend extended periods of time alone or in seclusion, or if there is someone important in your life, you will appreciate quiet times together.

This is not, however, a time to gamble with your security and things that are important to you; in other words, don't take silly chances. You have a great deal to be happy about, but you need to beware a sense of boredom, which often comes about when people are actually at peace. Don't shake things up for the sake of it. Count your blessings, at all levels.
