"Right before a change, we encounter all our obstacles to that change. This is known as a 'sunset effect': as a pattern goes down, it glows most vividly. Just before people are ready to change, they often thrash around, saying, 'I've already worked through these issues, so why am I dealing with all of this again?' The answer is, 'These issues are coming up again because you've almost resolved them.' When you feel this intensification coming on, remember Saturn's motto: 'Things are so hard, I must be almost done.' "

To Practice: Admire the sunset, rather than despairing over it, the next time your demons start acting up because you are about to really change.
