So you could find sudden unsettling developments in the circumstances of somebody who is dear to you very worrying. Soon, their reaction will reassure you that their loyalties are unchanged. Accepting last-minute changes of plan is one thing. But having been given no choice, youre making the best of the situation. Still, others are being informed of your displeasure. But dont say too much. While theyll also benefit, youre actually the one who stands to gain the most out of this. Yet again youve been caught in a situation in which your options are curtailed by the views of somebody for whom youve got little respect, or whose rules you regard as pointless. Still, they have considerable influence, and the fallout from ignoring them would scarcely justify the pleasure youd derive from doing so. It is very unlike you to be impetuous, but judging by this weeks powerful aspects to the planet of innovation, Uranus, unexpected events could lead to extraordinary opportunities. The trick is to show your interest, while making it clear that you need time to explore the practical side of things. Youre still thinking about the profound insights and dramatic developments triggered by the Aquarius eclipsed full moon nearly two weeks ago. Some of the events that took place were quite straightforward. However, others were more complex, making you reflect on areas of your life youve regarded as unchanging. Initially, you had hoped that certain dilemmas could be resolved without any dramas. But some people are determined to make an issue of their feelings. Let them. This is as much about getting attention as anything else, and theyll soon calm down. And that attention neednt be from you. Certain elements of your work or lifestyle that you regard as sacrosanct must change. Its true that at one point organising things as you did made sense. But now those arrangements are becoming a nuisance. Once youve undertaken these changes you will realise how badly needed they are. By now, youre recognising that one individual doesnt just have no interest in what anybody else has to say, theyre determined to ignore hard facts. Be patient. Within a few days theyll discover the world doesnt revolve around them and their whims. After that, theyll finally be willing to face the truth. While youre right to think the reception youll get to potentially contentious issues is likely to be better at certain moments than at others, some sort of clash is inevitable. Instead of waiting for right mood, address these now. Then therell be time for over-heated tempers to cool down. Little annoys you more than those who spend so much time questioning their actions and objectives that their indecision holds others back. Now youre about to become just one such individual. Until recently, certain arrangements were ideal. Still, before you can take things further, you must give them serious thought. Sometimes obstacles are just that, but your current difficulties are prompting you to ask questions about certain arrangements youve regarded as relatively straightforward. Theyre not, and if you dont make changes, youll regret it, as youll learn by discussing recent developments with those who are in the know.
