But things have evolved since then, which means you must either make some serious adjustments or take them back to the drawing board. And this time around, youre urged to ensure arrangements are flexible enough to accommodate the coming weeks changes. With the ideas planet Mercury retrograde, getting straightforward answers wont be easy. However, because this also accents your intuition, you might be better off relying on what you sense over hard facts. What is apparently reliable information could eventually turn out to be unreliable anyway. Over the next few days youre going to learn a lot. Some of this will involve the thoroughness that is part of dealing with any new plan or project. More important, however, will be the respect you begin to develop for the wisdom of one particular individual who, previously, you regarded as unimaginative and uninspiring. Dont make the mistake of thinking that in deciding to give up on certain plans youve worked hard to organise, youll be viewed as weak. On the contrary, others admire your persistence. But as the odds are stacked against you, they will recognise the wisdom of backing out now. While every sign is influenced by Saturns clash with Uranus, in a few days time, because the latter is your ruler, events are bound to have a deeper resonance. This not only means youll rethink certain elements of your life youve regarded as unchanging, youll find youre also reflecting on various cherished goals. The sooner you acknowledge that certain once- exciting plans arent working out, the better. These involve circumstances that are beginning to unravel. Keep such arrangements going and youll only face increasing struggles. Clear the way to explore new, and more suitable, options. Youve always been fascinated by friends who are able to rearrange their lives at a moments notice. You usually need to know whats involved before you consider changes. Now, however, youre giving serious thought to new ideas that, only days ago, youd have regarded as impossible. Its not that youve been avoiding heart-to-heart discussions with loved ones, as they complain. Rather, from experience you know these are likely to turn into an emotional marathon. Your objective, therefore, is to find a time when everybody can say what needs to be said without the constraints of other commitments. Think very carefully before you get involved in what seem like civilised discussions. These may begin in a restrained manner. But theyll gradually become more intense, until that veneer of restraint vanishes and the individuals concerned are just as excessive as you anticipated. As recent weeks have passed youve come to realise youd have to be considerably tougher in a situation in which youve been far too generous with one particular individual. Next weeks encounter between your ruler the sun and the stern Saturn is that time. Events will make it clear exactly where the line must be drawn. When arrangements arent going to plan, you tend to do all you can to ensure they proceed as you intended. Do that now and youll only complicate things. Judging by the dramatic changes currently reshaping the circumstances youre dealing with, youll need to take many of those plans back to the drawing board.
