STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Friday, 21 August 2009 25 Intheright-handpicture,Ambersshoelacesareblack,shehasaclutch bag,anothershoulderstrap,adifferentnecklineandnobraceletonher righthand If ever there were a time to be adventurous in matters of the heart, its now. True, its difficult to predict the direction in which the kind of encounters indicated by your ruler Venuss stunning aspect to Uranus will take you. But one thing you can be sure of is that your life will be so much the richer for them. You have numerous issues over which youve disagreed with certain individuals. And there are some in which the gulf between you appears unbridgeable. As impossible as achieving an accord seems, wait until next week. Changes in circumstance could revolutionise things. Within days, the courageous Mars moves to accent new arrangements, which suggests that your current situation could be vastly improved. And soon. Knowing that, instead of struggling with what you have now, ensure youre out and about, so you can be certain you wont miss the promised exciting developments. Theres saying whats on your mind, and then theres the frankness demanded by the current crop of aspects to the uncompromising Pluto. Hold even minor facts back and you not only risk them being revealed, but also others could interpret it as an indication youre hiding something vital. Sometimes some of the happiest moments spring out of nowhere and can be enjoyed for what they are. Currently, however, there are so many distractions that savouring even the simplest of pleasures is going to require a certain amount of concentration. While this may not be easy, itll be worth it, as youll soon discover. Both the source of others problems and their resolutions are clear to you. But resist the temptation to advise them. You wouldnt be helping. They need to reach the same conclusions on their own. Difficult as observing their struggles may be, theyre a vital part of the process. Life would be a lot easier if you could reach an accord with close friends, colleagues or neighbours over joint ventures. While you agree about the big picture, minor details are causing contention. Instead of debating further, proceed, knowing that each step will reveal the next. For the past several days youve ignored rather bizarre suggestions, both because they are so far out and would require a top-to-bottom reorganisation. But as youve learned more, youve been converted. Now you face a bigger challenge, which is winning over those individuals who are considerably less open-minded. Youre about to get a lesson in the gentle art of disagreeing. While certain individuals are encouraging you to take a firm stance over increasingly tense issues, you prefer a subtle approach. But you must make it clear that, ultimately, youre unwilling to compromise. It was only a week ago that you were convinced youd never alter certain arrangements. Now, not only are you doing exactly that, youre venturing out in all sorts of directions you would once have regarded as very unlikely. Yet with every step you take, you realise this was what you should have been doing all along. Problems in vital arrangements are sometimes best dealt with as if the situation in question is coming to a close. While thats by no means the case at the moment, this spurs you to consider your true feelings and reminds you why this mattered so much in the first place. That should make your priorities crystal clear. Answer:ewe-den-hiss(actorHughDennis) No 621 ACROSS 1. Choice (10) 7. Oust (5) 8. Clearer (7) 10. Outside (8) 11. Minus (4) 13. Struggle (6) 15.
