STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Monday, 29 June 2009 29 Intheright-handpicture,oneearringissmaller,onetrouserlegislonger, herbelthasanextrastrap,thepurplebitofthecarpetisgreenandone ofthelogosinthebackgroundsaysSerenanotSonyEricsson Recent disappointing developments made you wonder whether your faith in certain projects is misplaced. This would be a huge loss, as you care passionately about them. Dire as things seem, this is only a warning. Respond now, and youll catch potentially troublesome problems before they turn into anything serious. Dont make the mistake of thinking that just because you must give up some ground, you should worry about losing the battle. Actually, this is alerting you to changes in circumstance that could influence the shape of your goals and, quite possibly, your approach to achieving them. Obviously, youd much rather make a plan and stick to it. But with a pair of eclipses ushering in dramatic developments in the practical, business or financial side of your life, changes arent just likely, theyre inevitable. Worrying as all this may sound, the odds are good those changes will be extremely welcome ones. Although everybody will be influenced by the unexpected developments triggered by next weeks lunar eclipse, because its in your sign, you could already be experiencing shifts deep within. Be consoled they are a prelude to much-needed movement in restrictive elements of your life. Sometimes its easier to go along with what others say than point out inconsistencies in their thinking. Such as when they blame you for situations that arent your fault. Allow this to pass without comment, however, and theyll soon be upping the ante, and laying more burdensome issues at your doorstep. Call a halt now. Having been born under what is perhaps the most compassionate sign of the zodiac, you often find yourself putting others interests first. Now, circumstances will force you to think of your own needs. Odd as this seems, events will soon reveal why things are playing out like this. Ever since late May theres been talk of changes so far reaching you couldnt really take them seriously. But with each passing day its increasingly clear these could well become reality. Once they do, probably early next week, youll feel real excitement about what they offer. One of the virtues of long-standing relationships is that you know who you can trust. But, however sure you are that recent acquaintances are reliable, youre urged to be wary. Theyve promised the earth. But while theyre contending with this weeks challenging situations, they may not live up to those expectations. While life will be easier once decisions are made, rushing things would only complicate matters. Certain unanswered questions are unlikely to be resolved until the ideas planet, Mercury, moves into Cancer at the end of the week. Make addressing personal issues your first priority. Last week you were contending with difficult situations, and the unbending attitude of certain individuals. Obviously, making decisions under these circumstances was nearly impossible, and forced you to compromise. Now those same individuals are in a more flexible mood. Take advantage of this. Few things are more frustrating than dealing with somebody who insists on having the last word. But the deeper you consider their ideas, the greater respect youll develop for them. Ultimately, this will mean that instead of grumbling about their overbearing manner, youll find yourself doing a lot of listening. Answer:claw-deer-sheaf-r(modelClaudiaSchiffer) No 582 ACROSS 1.
