As You Watch
Click here to review our February forecast, then consider the following as you watch this month’s selection.
- Observe how Kumail pursues his freedom in the face of strict tradition by sometimes going along (relationship Kaleidoscope area) and other times pushing the boundaries (professional Kaleidoscope area).
- Watch how he remains always in his own driver’s seat despite sometimes intense pressure, by staying calm and respectful of another’s viewpoint—even when it could (or is actively trying to) knock him off balance. In this way he creates room for himself to focus at his own pace on what brings his freedom into being (sometimes quietly, other times in a flashpoint).
