With Mercury positioned in Libra and going retrograde early next week, those facts you sidestep now could turn into misunderstandings that could be both costly and time-consuming later. It seems like somebody that youve trusted hasnt been entirely honest. Because truthfulness is fundamental to any relationship, this has become a concern for you. Instead of wondering, express your thoughts directly. What you learn will relieve your doubts and prove unexpectedly informative. Every full moon brings things to a head. But because this one accents elements of your work or lifestyle, the odds are youll have to turn changes youve been discussing recently into action. This isnt the end of those changes. With powerful planetary activity continuing until mid September, this is only the start. Certain stubborn individuals are determined to have the last word. The problem is, they dont know their facts. While you realise that arguing about such petty issues is pointless, youre tempted to correct them. Dont. This will only result in another round of time-consuming squabbles. Dont mistake a stubborn adherence to plans for loyalty, either to certain individuals or to ventures to which youve become exceedingly attached. Acknowledging that changes need to happen isnt just important, it is the only way that all the necessary adjustments can be made so that things can to proceed as you hope and intend. Challenging as dealing with bitter disagreements may be, they are actually helping to clear the air. Youve been busy sidestepping certain contentious issues, mostly because you thought that theyd upset others. Nevertheless, the time has come to acknowledge these and talk them over frankly. Being a canny earth sign, you sense that certain elements of your work or daily life are about to be radically altered by whats about to take place. Trust those instincts, even if youre unclear as to how things will unfold. Simply knowing such changes are coming means youll recognise them. Making promises is often tricky. But with so much in transition right now, thinking that you can fulfil even the simplest of guarantees is risky. Even the most straightforward of situations may change suddenly. Ensuring any arrangements are flexible from the outset should enable you to avoid any such difficulties. Youre uneasy about relinquishing certain arrangements that form the foundation of your life, stability and security. While you recognise that many are already history, youre still anxious. Take action instead, and youll feel the surge of confidence that comes with focusing on the future. As a Leo you enjoy a little drama. However, you prefer things to end happily, which means youre sidestepping the issue triggered by the current full moon, where there seems to be scant hope of a good outcome. But actually, this has got more to do with the attitude of those involved, and their taste for more tragic dramas. When you offered a hand to one particular individual, you regarded the arrangement as temporary. Either they were thinking of something much longer lasting, or they have become so accustomed to your support that theyre reluctant to let it come to an end. Whatever the underlying reason, its up to you to call it a day. Answer:mat-d-angel-hoe(actorMattDiAngelo) No 628 ACROSS 1. Crafty trick (8) 5. Breeding farm (4) 9. Employer (4) 10. Incursion (5) 11.
