But when you feel others are being unfairly dealt with or mistreated in any way, you can be amazingly forthright. However, mustering that ferocity on your own behalf is another matter. Still, nobody else can confront certain individuals now. Its up to you, and you alone. Having already had difficult talks about increasingly troublesome situations, youre in no mood for yet more of the same. But you owe it to yourself to at least meet again. Once you do, discuss things from the beginning. Youll soon realise that you both had certain facts wrong. Making plans is one thing. But with the full moon, late next week, accenting both your domestic situation and your activities out in the world, its unlikely that arrangements will remain as organised. Recognise this, and instead of struggling to keep these as they are, youll allow them to evolve, in the way they must. By now you have probably realised that one particular individual has not exactly been honest. Their strategy has been to leave out facts that either undermine their own objectives or which they regard as distracting. Begin probing now, and youll soon learn what theyre not saying. Be wary of those seeking your advice. While they may be sincere, its more likely theyre looking for somebody to blame for certain problems theyve handled unwisely. Get involved, and should things worsen, theyll pretend youve been guiding them all along. If they get better, however, theyll happily take the credit. Recent clashes may have involved somebody who doesnt deal well with stress. You are beginning to realise, however, that this individual has ignored your more polite efforts to express your concerns, but responds swiftly to forthright exchanges, if not straightforward confrontation. Having thought long and hard about how you could convince others to go along with certain arrangements, you have one problem. In doing all you could to make everybody else happy, you have forgotten your own interests. Invest time in ensuring youre as well looked after as they are. Somebody appears to have taken an offhand remark you made far too seriously. Unimportant as it seemed at the time, it has meant they have drawn the wrong conclusions about you. As a result, what theyre telling others is just plain incorrect. Gently, but firmly, review the conversation in question and put the facts straight. There have been times in the past when you have thought far more about the others needs than your own. However, bear in mind that because some of the decisions you are currently making could be of far-reaching influence, its essential that you put you and your requirements first. The ideas that others are proposing as solutions for certain persistent dilemmas make no sense to you. Yet they are convinced these arent just worthwhile, they would constitute a real improvement. At least consider what they have to say. The more often you hear their views, the more logic you will recognise in them. When you first discussed breaking away from once exciting arrangements, you worried the process would be complicated by emotional dramas. Now others have admitted things arent working and while regrets and the emotions that come with them are inevitable, its unlikely that there will be problems of any kind.

Splitpersonality Can you work out the name of the famous person from these pictures? While you would prefer to clear up persistent issues in a straightforward manner, one particularly stubborn individual insists there are no problems to discuss. Thats because the issues in question dont affect them. Try exchanging your civilised approach for a more aggressive one. If its your birthday at the weekend...
