STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN Intheright-handpicture,Melindasshortshaveayellowstripe,theblack logoonhertophasmoved,herbrakeismissing,theuprightchocolate barbehindthebrakecableandthehorizontalpolebehindaremissing Unsettling as the heightened emotions that accompany the approaching full moon may be, theyre forcing you to focus on issues youve been ignoring. Begin discussing them now and youll understand whats behind these dilemmas. Better yet, youll also find youre able to deal with them without drama. Inevitably, the events triggered by next weeks numerous aspects to Uranus, planet of innovation and the unexpected, will be disruptive. Still, it wont take much to recognise just how much the accompanying ideas promise. Whatever the changes required, youll happily make them. When you agreed to new ventures, you were conscious theyd be chaotic, but regarded that as being a small price to pay for what would ultimately be achieved. Unfortunately, those whose support you need lack your enthusiasm. Dont just hope theyll agree eventually. Convince them now, or prepare to abandon your plans. Its the rare Capricorn whos happy with others taking over decisions about important matters at work or at home. Yet it would appear thats exactly what youre facing. Unhappy as this makes you, the individual in charge is very well-informed, and has your best interests in mind. As somebody whos both tolerant of others and a firm friend, youll occasionally withdraw, but rarely cut off communications. However, now thats exactly what youre thinking about doing. Dont. Youd regret it. Theres been a serious misunderstanding, as youll realise once youre actually discussing events frankly. Youve invested considerable time, thought and heart into one particular plan. However, things have changed dramatically. While you could continue as you originally intended, it would be an uphill struggle. Fortunately, you already have a new and more appropriate concept in mind. There are some important decisions to make. While life would be simpler if you could get these sorted, and soon, nothing is falling into place. Actually, life is more unsettled than it seems. Take it slowly and youll avoid organising hasty arrangements that youd only regret later. The emotions triggered by the full moon in a few days time are likely to be unsettling. But its probably the only way youll get certain otherwise uncommunicative individuals to talk about their feelings. Once theyre actually discussing them, youll be amazed how easily youre able to resolve persistent dilemmas. At the moment, the last thing youre interested in is exploring ideas that would lead to far-reaching changes. However, within days your attitude will be transformed. Youll realise these arent just inevitable, theyll allow you to take advantage of certain intriguing new concepts. Somebody dear to your heart has hinted that you need to talk over certain issues. While you dont want to upset them, youre dreading what could be lengthy and emotional discussions. Putting off such conversations achieves nothing. In fact, the longer you wait, the greater emotional intensity those exchanges will have. Having struggled to organise certain plans, youre in no mood to alter them. However, the new and exciting ideas that are currently emerging will become increasingly compelling, so that by early next week, when your ruler Mars aspects the planet of innovation, Uranus, youll actually be eager to change things.
