But judging by the retrograde Mercurys clash with the unpredictable Uranus, thats exactly whats about to happen. Theyre disruptive, but youll soon realise theyre better than anything youd come up with previously. By saying nothing about certain tricky matters that are making your life difficult, youve given the impression that youve no problems or, alternatively, that youre deftly handling those you have. The reverse is very much the case. Discuss your situation frankly and openly now. You enjoy a good debate, but youve found that a contentious attitude can actually stimulate thinking. At the moment, however, certain people are in a sensitive mood, which means they could take some of whats said personally. Be conscious of that, and however lively your exchanges, youll avoid upsetting others. Altering plans you worked hard to organise seems insane. But judging by recent planetary activity in the part of your chart that accents ways you could broaden your horizons, youd benefit enormously from at least exploring whats now coming your way. Youre could learn something. Sometimes arguments are just that. However, because the retrograde Mercury is at odds with your ruler Uranus, even seemingly unimportant clashes could prove revealing. So instead of dismissing these, focus on making the best of them, by both questioning their source, and exploring what you can gain from them. Disagreements arent just normal, they help you get to know others and understand their thinking. But there are one or two topics about which feelings are running so high you could say more than is wise. However urgent it seems, youre better off waiting until the mood is calmer. Its understandable if recent offers that were as exciting as they seemed worthwhile made you suspicious. But now you know more, youre beginning to realise theyre as good as they appear. True, with Mercury still retrograde, there could be some problems but these will be minor. What began as an innocent deception has blossomed into a potentially troublesome situation. The problem is, others made an incorrect but convenient assumption, and you didnt put them straight. It didnt matter then, but now it does. Waste no time hoping for a solution. The sooner you clear things up, the better. Once you were tolerant of somebody who has badgered you ceaselessly about their often petty needs and desires. But lately youve been on the point of blowing up with them. The individual in question is so self-involved that they wont notice anything less than a dramatic outburst. Others seem convinced that certain new ideas are the answer to numerous awkward problems. Youre not only dubious about their claims, you think theyve been taken in by the promises of those who stand to profit. That might be true. Theyll only find out if you give them their head and allow them to take things further. Normally youre the first to respond to worthwhile suggestions about existing plans. Yet in one particular situation, youre refusing to even discuss changes. This has nothing to do with the arrangement and everything to do with a clash of wills between you and somebody whos managed to make you very angry indeed.

Otherwise youd seem weak and would also regard the time youve invested as wasted. On the contrary, each plan is but one stage of many.
