Old things - and the weight of family responsibilities could really get to you. Even a childhood illness could resurface. You might also be reminded of an old relationship you'd rather forget. Whilst all this might be painful, this could be the platform that makes you determined to move forward - despite everything. You could find a curious ally in an older person who seems to understand exactly where you're at.

A task may have become too big or complicated: you might now need the help of someone who's totally detached. With a voice from the past - or even a past love affair bringing back memories, making space to devote to affairs of the heart instead of business could appeal. You might not like what you hear about a friend's love-life - and may even feel the need to give them advice.
