Theyre never happy with anything anybody does. Once you understand that theyll find fault whatever you do, youll feel free to organise things according to practical requirements and, more importantly, to suit yourself. Youll sidestep unimportant facts if theyd cause unnecessary discussion. However, certain information you regarded as being of little significance is becoming increasingly crucial. You must reveal any relevant details to others. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be. Of the 12 signs, youre best at dealing with the unexpected. Bear this in mind over the coming weeks, since with Mercury retrograde from Monday, sudden changes and revelations can lead to chaos. While, from your perspective, this is an exciting challenge, others see it as a nuisance and treat it accordingly. The recent full moon didnt just make everybody feel vulnerable, it also triggered highly emotional debates. Now that youre able to assess what was said from a more rational perspective, youre recognising that in their rather overwrought ramblings, others revealed pivotal facts. What began as a litany of complaints has turned into a lengthy rant. It could be that others are simply going through a bad spell and are taking their frustration out on you. If so, its your responsibility to inform them that, sympathetic as you are about their plight, such erratic behaviour is completely unacceptable. Youre always interested in new ideas and what others are up to. Be cautious about the way you express that interest, since it could be misinterpreted as a desire to support them or become more involved. Gently but firmly make it clear just how far youre willing to go. By the time your ruler Venus has departed the portion of your chart that accents family and domestic matters later this month, youll have dealt with far more issues than you imagined possible. Youll learn something from each which, in turn, makes it easier to tackle the rest. After seemingly endless talk about various potential changes in your domestic or professional life, the events triggered by the recent full moon are forcing you to commit to one plan. Once youve stopped debating and are turning your ideas into action, therell be no question about what works and what doesnt. Dont make the mistake of assuming that having discussed plans with others once, theyll do as agreed. Their attention span is short, so theyre expecting you to alter arrangements as you go. Keep in close touch, updating them at each stage, and youll avoid last-minute surprises. Most Leos enjoy being generous. This is so natural that you wouldnt think of keeping track of what you do for others or, conversely, their efforts on your behalf. But those closest are insisting that you focus particularly on one or two individuals, who they rightly say are taking unfair advantage of your generosity. When youre standing up for something or somebody you believe in, youre fearless. But even the most forthright of confrontations achieve little if the individual youre talking to is paying no attention. Bide your time. Within a week, events will force them to get involved in these urgent situations. Answer:awl-butt-fin-e(actorAlbertFinney) No 630 ACROSS 1. Wander (4) 3. Fraud (8) 8. Muddle (4) 9. Adherent (8) 11.
