STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Tuesday, 1 September 2009 31 Intheright-handpicture,Johnnyshatistaller,hismoustacheisjoined tohisbeard,moreofhischestisshowing,hisbeltchainislongerand thewhitedetailonhisleftshoehaschanged When theres a serious clash with others, you often feel youve failed. You assume that, had you been more diplomatic or assessed issues correctly, things would have gone more smoothly. However, the exchanges indicated by the clash between Mercury and the volatile Mars arent just inevitable, theyll help clear the air. Between your ability to evaluate situations and your sharp instincts, youll notice facts that dont fit or sense what doesnt seem right. But now you could easily mistake the disarray that accompanies change for the inconsistencies youd regard as a signal somethings not right. You really enjoy a lively debate, especially with those who are well informed and able to give as good as they get. Be aware, however, that with so much in transition, and therefore the actual basis of fundamental situations changing, even those whod ordinarily be regarded as experts could have certain facts wrong. Consider every option, but regard anything you organise as tentative. Clear-cut as circumstances seem now, the unanticipated twists introduced by your ruler Saturns clash with Uranus, planet of innovation and the unexpected, in two weeks time, could revolutionise things entirely. Certain individuals seem very sure of facts. But a combination of your instincts and personal knowledge makes you suspect theyre mistaken. Do a little investigation and you might discover youre right. With so much in transition, things are changing quickly and its impossible for anybody to keep up to date. Little is worse than disappointing others. However, its becoming clear you simply cant proceed with particular arrangements as you first organised them. Discuss these frankly. Those involved are fully aware of the circumstances and wont be surprised that changes need to be made. You have recently tried to inform others that certain arrangements they regard as somewhat of a work of art wont pan out nearly as well as they expect. Theyve had the chance to remedy problems while they can. Unfortunately theyve no intention of listening to anybodys advice. Its mystifying. You can discuss problems with others, they say they understand, then only hours later you realise nothings changed. Thats because from their perspective, discussions are only that. If you want action, you must state it clearly, and with the conviction of somebody whos making a demand, not a request. Suddenly you feel unhappy about potential changes. Only recently, you welcomed these. Now, however, youre wrestling with the heightened feelings of vulnerability that accompany the Full Moon. Once its over, in a few days time, youll regain that more clear-minded perspective. While youre a fire sign, and therefore have an impetuous streak, youre also capable of enormous patience and, whenever necessary, remarkable subtlety. Thats exactly what youll need now, if youre to convince others to go along with plans youre thrilled about, but which they regard as nothing but disastrous. Having already discussed contentious issues several times, you wouldnt think theres any need to inform others what your views are. However, their attitude has changed frequently and so they assume yours has as well. Talk things over in detail now, so when plans are settled, you can be sure therell be no surprises.
