Even if we wander into a dark forest, we know we will arrive somewhere comfortably familiar if we keep walking in a particular direction for long enough. That's something to bear in mind as you head toward unfamiliar territory now. It may appear daunting, but you can trust that any trepidation on your part will be brief. As long as you keep moving, you will get through the other side and end up somewhere that feels reassuring.
It is a given that the final months of any year are going to fly by and before you know it we will be hearing how many days or weeks there are until Christmas. This makes it important to take a major life review that has been underway all year seriously, even if it feels like all you are doing is wading through old memories and reminiscing. Major new doors are due to open in December but before then it is not about closing old doors and more about exploring what lies behind them before they close on their own.
