This crosses the parts of your chart that accent close relationships, and the next seven days are likely to be just as revealing about your inner feelings as they are dramatic in a general sense. At first when you suggested certain plans, one particular individual seemed unenthusiastic. But they said nothing, so you assumed theyd be happy to let you take the lead. Ever since then, theyve been undermining your efforts. The only way to stop them is to address this head-on. Youve been struggling like everyone else with the confusion caused by Mercurys retrograde cycle. But with your ability to view almost anything from a humorous perspective, certain individuals think nothing matters to you. Tedious as it is to explain yourself, if you dont, theyll think you dont care. Discuss every idea you hear about, including those that make no sense. Ordinarily, exploring these far-out concepts would be a waste of time. But while you might not adopt any as theyre presented to you, the odds are youll incorporate them into what, ultimately, you decide to do. Some people always insist on having the last word. While usually youre easy-going, lately youve been very different, more combative and less willing to listen to others. Now its you whos determined to have the last word. Out of character as this is, youre making your points with those whod otherwise be impossible. Recent insights about the attitude of certain individuals and the reason theyre so difficult have explained a great deal. Now that you understand more about them, you need to apply that knowledge. Thus, youll back off when they begin acting in a manner that will lead to dramas. Having dealt with someone whos especially tricky, and found they only become more impossible with each experience, youre dreading your next encounter. That time has come. However, theyve been made to realise how impossible they are, and have made a complete transformation. Only days ago, events cornered you into being far more frank about your feelings toward one individual than you intended, resulting in a few uncomfortable moments. Since then youve realised that youre not only more relaxed, but while you thought they were upset, they felt these exchanges cleared the air. When you consider the origin of discussions about potential changes in your way of living or working, you realise youve been reviewing versions of these for ages. Now things are moving swiftly, you must give serious thought to whether or not you actually want to take plans further. Few things are more frustrating than being locked in a power struggle that is as much about ego as it is about the actual situation in question. You may fear backing off would undermine others confidence in you. Actually, its the reverse. Theyll admire your courage for addressing these already tricky issues frankly. Negative feedback from others has never kept you from pursuing what you believe in, and it wont now. However, before you decide that youre on your own, give certain individuals a few days to reflect on what youve been discussing. They need time, and by then its likely theyll see things in a far more positive light. Answer:jay-ms-cam-heron(directorJamesCameron) No 643 ACROSS 4. Narration (7) 8. Aviator (6) 9. Blow up (7) 10.
