Interpretation for Immediate Situation:

Life for you seems quiet for you at this time. You feel yourself withdrawing from what you enjoyed, perhaps from your ambitions, or the people you enjoy spending time with. Don't be afraid to reemerge - spend more time with those you love and don't be afraid to be ambitious instead of staying within an easier comfort zone.
