However, the attitude and behaviour of one particular individual is increasingly worrying. Say nothing for now. If you must speak up, youre better off doing it at the end of next week. You are more patient than other signs, particularly in personal matters. Still, you may not be happy to learn that in one very tricky matter, youll probably need to wait until both Mercury and Venus powerfully aspect your ruler Pluto, in mid-October, for things to come together. Not until youre viewing the past two years efforts in retrospect will you realise how much youve accomplished. For the time being, however, youll be relieved to know that youve only four more weeks of the tough Saturns influence to deal with. Once its moved on, you can relish those achievements. You would never make plans based on questionable information, but recently youve done exactly this. Thats because while Mercury was retrograde, even seemingly simple statements and promises werent reliable. Now its moving forward again, youll be able to tell fact from fiction. Dont misinterpret the unsettling situations youre currently contending with as serious problems. While they might involve changes beyond anything youve anticipated, and developments you regard as disruptive, theyre taking you in the right direction. But you wont know that until youve begun exploring your options. As a Pisces, trust is essential. And when its broken, you must either rebuild it, or reassess your standing with the individual involved. Dont decide anything yet. Actually, with Mercury only now ending its retrograde cycle, what seemed like solid facts could be completely wrong. Its not that youve been avoiding tricky issues. Youve simply hoped the situations behind these dilemmas might improve. But judging by the coming weeks planetary activity, things can only deteriorate. Discuss these frankly and openly, to seek solutions everybody can live with. Everybody is relieved that your ruler Mercurys retrograde cycle is over. But you in particular, because youve taken elements of the resulting confusion too much to heart. Now that things are calmer, youll find that because youre able to view them from a more rational perspective, theyre easier to deal with. Few things are trickier to handle than misunderstandings with hypersensitive types. However, if you can manage to draw discussions out over several days, the more theyll recognise the degree to which theyve contributed to the tension. This revelation should change everything. If others arent acting fast enough for your taste, tell them. But dont expect them to move any faster because of your urgings. Theyre having to contend with obstructions of which youre unaware. By next week, when you learn what was going on in the background, youll realise why they were dragging their heels. The last thing youre in the mood to do is dwell on situations that aggravate unsettling issues or leave you feeling vulnerable. However, this weekends Aries full moon accents exactly such matters. Deal with them now and, although it may be somewhat tricky, youll conquer them before they get out of hand. Answer:pat-e-oars-tin(singerPattiAustin) No 646 ACROSS 1. Scorn (8) 5. Slave (4) 9.
