STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Wednesday, 5 August 2009 29 Intheright-handpicture,oneofScarlettssleevesisshorter,shehasa biggerlockofhairoverhershoulder,thefrillonherblouseisonthe right,hertattooismissingandthestripebetweenherfeethasgone Youve put off decisions involving elements of your work or lifestyle because you were short of facts. While you still dont know everything youd like to, with your ruler Venus now dominating the crucial midheaven angle of your chart, those decisions will have to be made. Trust your instincts and youll get it right. Having maintained discretion over certain delicate matters for so long, being forced to discuss them openly has felt odd. But while speaking in a forthright manner has seemed almost disloyal, its finally been a relief to talk about these issues without worrying that you might say too much. Ordinarily, the events triggered by eclipses bring swift, sharp changes. However, those youre facing are slower moving, and so make you wonder whether you need to reconsider your priorities. Because the results are likely to be far-reaching, take time to explore both familiar options and those that have only just arisen. You are a perfectionist, and demand more of yourself than others, even when theyre making a real effort. So when things go wrong, you worry youre losing your touch. Actually, with the current eclipse triggering shake-ups, nobody could have anticipated absolutely everything, including you. Obviously, waking up to discover that something -- or somebody -- you once found entrancing is no longer of any interest to you is a shock. But this, and other changes in your perspective and priorities, are natural at the time of an eclipse in your sign, which marks the end of one cycle and the beginning of another. It is important you dont mistake the complaints of certain individuals about the influence of recent developments as an indication they expect you to help them. Theyre moaning to everybody. Even if you offered assistance, theyd probably ignore it. Theyre having way too much fun grumbling. Since earlier this year you have been encouraged to alter certain habits. Only now is it becoming clear just why certain others were so insistent this would be a wise thing to do. But while youre unsure youll go along with everything they suggest, youre also no longer able to dismiss their ideas. Eclipses bring situations to a head and the intensity and impact of events are influenced by its aspects to your solar chart. Because this weeks eclipse accents your point of view, the emphasis is as much on your attitude to certain matters, and the need to make changes, as on the changes in the events themselves. Because youre more sensitive to the full moon than others, you wont be surprised by the meltdown certain individuals are experiencing when it comes to emotions theyve been ignoring. Encourage them to discuss those feelings, and be as open about yours, and miracles can be achieved. For ages youve been encouraging one or two individuals to take a more aggressive approach to the changes theyre considering. Now they are, youre concerned theyre overdoing it. But this is more about you and your anxiety that theyll achieve so much theyll leave you behind. Never fear. Youre unforgettable. While every sign will be influenced by this, the last of the current series of three eclipses, youll feel uncharacteristically vulnerable emotionally. Ordinarily youd resist this. Dont. The more you focus, the more youll learn about your own feelings and those of others, many of which you ignore, often to your loss.
