Youve run out of excuses for avoiding one particularly contentious individual. They seem to have appointed themselves as your best friend, and are informing everybody of that fact. This alone is reason to get together with them. While the ensuing discussion wont be a pleasant one, you really must put them straight. Youve just realised that youre fighting a losing battle. Having acknowledged this, youre now free to say farewell to the ideas, plans or dreams that meant so much to you. After a surprisingly short mourning period, youll discover far more interesting things to occupy your time. Ever since the determined Saturn moved to accent your work and lifestyle two years ago, youve been reviewing your priorities. While youve already made changes, this weeks clash with the planet of innovation, Uranus, is bound to introduce some surprising developments. They could prove to be exactly what youve needed. Ordinarily before you commit youd want to know what youre dealing with. However, between the confusion that accompanies the retrograde Mercury and the world around you in transition, even straightforward situations are unreliable. Listen to what your instincts are telling you. While every sign will be influenced by this weeks rare and powerful run-in between Saturn and your ruler Uranus, it has a double impact on you. Ironically, the developments that seem most disruptive in the short term could prove to be best in the long run. Try to remember this when youre feeling overwhelmed. Some people argue for the sake of it. Keep this in mind now, since with Mercury retrograde and aspecting the uncompromising Pluto, you could easily get into heated disputes about even simple statements. Speak your mind, then back off and allow events to testify to their accuracy. The last thing youre in the mood to do is change the way you live your life because of the capricious decisions of others. Discuss their plans with them frankly. The more you learn, the more youll understand whats behind their thinking. You might even find yourself agreeing. Just when you thought youd organised obligations on the domestic front, changes in circumstance force a rethink. Obviously, this is inconvenient. However, because it requires an unexpectedly extensive analysis of the situation, what you devise this time will be more adaptable and, therefore, longer lasting. Your refusal even to consider rearranging various elements of your life suggests that, at least here, your views are very rigid indeed. Ironically, what you learn when dealing with the mistakes triggered by the retrograde Mercury could give you a glimpse of what youre missing. At some point soon, youll realise that so much of what youve been battling to maintain as part of your life isnt actually worth fighting for. While you may have sentimental attachments to certain individuals or arrangements, its increasingly clear they belong to the past. And you have a golden future awaiting you. Although others are concerned about the sudden and far-reaching changes currently shaking up elements of your daily life, youre not nearly as worried. Disruptive as these are in the short term, youre thrilled with the chance they give you to update certain arrangements that are as tedious as they are time-consuming.
