STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN Intheright-handpicture,Michelleshairispartedontheotherside,she hasbraceletsonbothwrists,hershoeshaveextrastraps,theword DubaiisinyellowandanShasbeenaddedtoLasVegas Theres a difference between being inquisitive, which you are, and actually taking advantage of what you hear about. The problem is, you suspect that once you get involved in investigating certain developments, theyll begin to take over your life. Judging by what theyre bringing your way that would be no bad thing. You so dislike being viewed as vulnerable that even when others offer to lend a hand, youll refuse. Reflect on this now. They already know youre having a tough time, and are willing to help. Continuing to pretend things are going well when they arent makes absolutely no sense. Lifes practicalities may seem urgent, but its no surprise. This isnt ominous, its about concluding the challenging but ultimately rewarding cycle that began when Saturn moved into the mid-heaven angle of your chart two years ago. Now that its about to depart, your instincts are telling you to tie up the loose ends. Initially you could regard others questioning of your ideas as an irritation or evidence that theyve been inattentive. Actually, youve kept so busy pursuing your plans that you havent updated those around. Explain your intentions and there will be no more of those annoying questions. Having long ago learned that life is easier if you express your views openly, you discuss your emotions frankly. Yet theres one particular issue on which youve said little, mostly because youve been unsure of your feelings in this case. Talk these over with others. It will prove amazingly, and unexpectedly, enlightening. Its unusual for you to become so agitated by a dispute that you insist on having the last word. But one recent clash has brought out your fiery side, and you want everybody to know what you think. Powerful as your convictions are, once youve calmed down, those views will change. A full moon always brings issues to a head. Occasionally thats a relief, as it forces others to recognise what needs to be tackled. However, you wont be as enthusiastic about the sensitive personal issues now being accented. In fact, youve been doing all you can to avoid them. The best way to deal with the next few days exciting if bewildering events is to explore everything and agree to nothing. This will be more difficult than youd imagine, as certain ideas or offers may seem urgent. But with situations changing so frequently, theres absolutely no rush to make commitments of any kind. Others are encouraging you to confront those who have refused to discuss troubling dilemmas. You sense that they will talk, but they need to decide when. At this point, they can barely acknowledge whats going on to themselves, so it wont be easy to verbalise their feelings to anyone else. Rarely do you allow obstacles of any kind to undermine your enthusiasm. This is fortunate, because lately youve faced serious difficulties. Others are suggesting you give in. Dont. In a weeks time your ruler the sun brilliantly aspects the bountiful Jupiter. That will be the turning point youve been waiting for. If youre excited about new ideas or revolutionary offers, its no surprise. These are under the influence of the planet of innovation and the unexpected, Uranus. While theyre somewhat disruptive, theyre still too good to pass up. Your only problem is convincing others to go along with something so different.
