If there are conflicts or tensions of any kind, youre usually the one who knows how to defuse them to everyones satisfaction. Now, though, this would only make things worse. Some disagreements are a prelude to direct exchanges that will either remedy existing problems, or make it clear that changes are needed. Youve told others that youre happy leaving decisions to them. However, deep down inside youre unsure, and will be monitoring their actions. Theyre bound to notice, which in turn will make them feel insecure. Discuss your concerns now and youll put most of them to rest. Having always regarded disagreements as one way of airing and clearing up issues, and decisively so, youre puzzled by the reluctance of a particular individual to express their obvious discontent. Be patient. Their pace may be considerably slower than yours, but eventually theyll find a way to say what needs to be said. We all dream about opportunities coming from out of the blue. But now thats actually happened, as a result of last weeks potent alliance between Jupiter and Neptune, youre not exactly thrilled. However, once youve looked further into who and whats involved, youll feel more enthusiastic. Others are constantly telling you how excited they are about the dramatic events currently streaming through your life. You recognise their potential but you havent had much time to explore, because nearly all your attention is being devoted to dealing with the confusion and chaos caused by the accompanying changes. Only days ago you were discussing intriguing ventures, but had no idea how youd overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Ironically, the disruptive developments others regard as such a nuisance have ushered in the necessary changes. Its time now to start to take these plans further. Both your ruler, Venus, and the courageous Mars are accenting practical matters, so its time to take stock. Certain activities have become unrewarding, yet they take up a disproportionate amount of your time. Instead of struggling on with these, consider whether theyre worth the effort any more. Over the past month or so you agreed to several arrangements. Either you were manipulated into them, or it was your own feelings of guilt that made you say yes. Whatever the case, extricate yourself starting with immediate effect. While this wont be easy now, the longer you wait, the more complicated it will become. The problem isnt what youve said to others. Its what you havent said. This has given the impression that you dont care about certain situations, when actually you have very deep feelings. Much as you dread raising these issues, saying nothing will only confuse things further. Once you are able to understand that even the simplest of plans are unlikely to remain as you organised them, you will have overcome your biggest challenge. This is a period of opportunity and radical change. And because these changes come in stages, the plans you make as a result are bound to change frequently, too. Excited as you are about the thrilling opportunities peppering the lives of several people in your life, you cant help but wonder how this will influence your relationships with them. Dont worry -- while there are bound to be changes, youre just as important to them, and no matter how busy they are, you always will be. Answer:Almond-r-hole-den(actressAmandaHolden) No 592 ACROSS 6.
