It has only just occurred to you that they can be dealt with, and swiftly, by approaching them from an entirely unaccustomed angle. Once these are successfully resolved, youll be trying this method on other frustrating dilemmas. Some decisions can, if necessary, be made within minutes. But those you are currently wrestling will require considerable investigation and reflection. Even then, it may not be until the courageous Mars aspects your ruler Pluto, later this month, that youll feel ready to commit. Complicated as the obstacles you are facing seem, between sudden changes in the situations youre dealing with and enlightening discussions, you can achieve miracles. But youll need to approach them in the right order. First, youll want to analyse the dilemmas themselves. Then focus on solutions. Every full moon heightens feelings of emotional vulnerability. However, because the recent one was an eclipse, youre coping with practical anxieties too. Worrying as you find these, when you view such concerns in retrospect, youll recognise them as necessary, if not long overdue. Leaving familiar elements of your life behind could trigger some sadness or concern that youll never again find the same kind of joy in a new and unfamiliar setting. If those worries are overwhelming, think back to times in the past when you felt the same unease, and the wonderful things that then came your way. If you disagree with others plans or what they are actually doing, express those views clearly. They may not be welcome. However, at times of dramatic change such as this, an exchange of ideas is vital. The more thoughts you offer, the more youll encourage others to offer theirs. Accepting that youll need to make changes is one thing. But the timing involved is another matter and, obviously, youd like a moment to reflect on your options. You may not get it. Actually, youre better off undertaking those changes, then adding any alterations after the fact. Of the 12 signs, youre the last one anybody would regard as rigid in your thinking. For this reason, what youre learning about the degree to which youve ignored certain worthwhile opportunities is as surprising as it is embarrassing. This may make you wonder where else youve bypassed valuable options. Standing up to those who are being unreasonable or unkind is vital. However, because this is a period of transition, timing is even more crucial. Raise these issues now, but say no more. This gives others a chance to think, and could mean finding a solution without any drama at all. Sooner or later, youll have to be firm with certain individuals who have been doing exactly as they please, without the least regard to the impact of their actions on you or others. Youre dreading this. But just wait until early next week, and events will give you the perfect justification for confronting them head-on. Its clear that youre going to have to face up to one particularly difficult individual. Youre tempted to stage a confrontation now. Instead, do some research first. Gather important facts about them and learn more about the situation in question. Do this now, and by early next week youll be ready to take a firm stand.
