IN&OUTTONIGHT STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN2 36 Friday, 18 September 2009 London Lite Intheright-handpicture,Ditasearringsaremissing,hershoulderstrap isnarrower,herpurseisgreen,shehasanklestrapsandtheredcarpet stretchesfurtherback Only days ago you were complaining about the heavy-handed approach of certain people to what you regarded as minor differences. Youre now discovering that things were more serious than you realised and that, far than being overbearing, their way of dealing with the situation in question was restrained. Things may look bad. But dont assume others were up to no good. Recent planetary activity involving the unruly Uranus has resulted in sudden and often seemingly unwise changes. Now, you can talk over whats happened and learn how those concerned handled these developments. By now youve probably had a chance to think about the seemingly outrageous suggestions that came your way during the past week. Usually youre the one whos shaking up others, but now its your turn to be perplexed. This is timely, as its broadening your perspective just when youre having to make decisions. Reorganising existing arrangements and keeping everybody happy simply isnt possible. Acknowledge that and youll have overcome the biggest obstacle youre currently facing. Explain to others what you intend to do, making it clear that youre merely informing them what to expect. Everybody seems to have advice for you about how the exciting developments currently reshaping your life should be handled. Listen carefully, as certain of their observations will be worth considering. But steer clear of anything but the simplest of plans, since this cycle of change is by no means over. Theres a difference between defending your views, which you must, and others acknowledging what youve said, which they might not. The process of gathering information and putting your thoughts in order is something youre doing for yourself, not to win anyone over to your side. It may take you some time to fully understand the insights in personal matters triggered by the recent new moon. Dont allow the urgent mood of others or your own feeling that decisions must be made swiftly to corner you into making agreements that would constitute a compromise. While theres no use arguing with someone who simply refuses even to consider anything new, youre not stuck with their old-fashioned attitude. For now, back off. Then, when the current changes force them to take a more serious look at the ideas youve proposed, make yourself available and ready to discuss them. You were wise to steer clear of the clash between partners, at work or at home, even if you felt guilty at the time. Since then its become abundantly clear that the battle is a personal one. Not only does it have nothing to do with you, any advice you give would be misrepresented. When you were first told that somebody was concealing important information, you didnt take it that seriously. Now, youve not only been convinced by events, youve been made aware of the elaborate measures theyve taken to keep things under wraps. Getting the truth requires only that you ask a single direct question. Typically, you undertook certain complex projects confident you could deal with them solo. Now that you realise you cant, its time for teamwork. Happily, certain individuals have already offered a hand. You just need to muster the humility to confess you couldnt handle things yourself and say a simple thank you. Answer:rod-jar-sun-heart(composersRodgers&Hart) No 640 ACROSS 6. Protection (7) 7.

Splitpersonality Can you work out the name of the famous person from these pictures? Its not your pride thats the problem. Its that you explore the facts so carefully before making even the simplest decision. Consequently, you find it difficult to believe you were so wrong. Thats how it looks now. But coming days revelations could show how right you were. If its your birthday at the weekend... SATURDAY The fact that your ruler Mercurys retrograde on your birthday, and in Virgo, suggests theres more to it than mere errors but something you need to go into to examine how beliefs influence your thinking. SUNDAY Celebrate this birthday, as the move into Virgo by Venus, the planet of love, beauty and wealth, shifts the focus to these delightful topics. MONDAY Speaking frankly can sometimes be difficult, and speaking from the heart can be even more challenging. Now, you must combine the two.
