You can only push so hard. Then, at a certain point, the universe pushes back and you need to get some rest. For example:
i A New Moon or Full Moon in your twelfth house is a clear message that you need to withdraw. The Sun's annual monthly passage through that sector of your chart is a wonderful time to schedule a retreat.
i It's also wise to withdraw when the Moon is in the sign preceding your own. Thus, if you're a Scorpio, the Moon's journey through Libra is a time to pull back, to meditate, and to catch up on your sleep, content in the knowledge that when the Moon enters Scorpio two or three days later, you'll receive a boost — and you'll be fully rested and ready to take advantage of it.
That's what astrological timing is about. It isn't about fate. It's about using the stars to maximum advantage.
