Me too, I've been on journeys throughout different times in my life. How I dealt with them depended on my life wisdom at the time. At the moment, I'm on a Plutonic journey (parallel my natal Venus/Mercury and heading to parallel my North node/Neptune conjunction). I actually feel this drawing my energies inwards, I will probably be able to describe it better once its over, though right now if you encountered me, I would come across very much like a 'Ms Pluto', and certainly not smiling (that much, unless the humour is ironic or dry...). That is not to say, I feel unhappy, I feel contented just sitting with this journey, I think my meditation practice helps this greatly, just observing what comes up and seeing it for what it is.
Possibly very vague, I know, but when your on a journey, you know what you mean even if no one else does.
