A situation might look and feel familiar. But rather than ponder how or why a deja vu scenario exists, focus instead on what you learned or gained from similar circumstances previously. You have knowledge and experience that can be applied helpfully and constructively that you didn't have before. This can make whatever seems confusing or daunting much less serious or problematic.
We often hear about opinions, beliefs, or attitudes 'set in stone.' But stone, as we know, isn't the most durable or hardest of all materials. It has weak spots and can be easily shattered with the right level of focus and effort. That's worth bearing in mind where a belief you may be determined to be inflexible toward is concerned. You could discover it's not as resilient as you thought it was. That will prove helpful.
Even if it feels as if something is progressing or unfolding at a painfully slow pace, you can be certain that momentum will pick up shortly. If anything, you have a chance to use this 'calm before the storm' to focus your efforts and become clearer about what you will do when the pace quickens. Enjoy this respite - because it looks set to be brief!
