Concerned as you are about the issues that one particular individual is facing, their agenda is far more complicated than it appears. Steer well clear of it, at least for now. While youre capable of great diplomacy while seriously disagreeing with others, youre also able to be breathtakingly direct. Be cautious about the latter. No matter how strong your evidence and convictions about the situation in question are, you could still find you are wrong. Its certainly the case that its been a demanding period. But everybodys been struggling with something, so theres really no excuse for neglecting those you care about most. Its just that youve become so wrapped up in your own pursuits, time has got away from you. Make up for it now, before they become really upset. Theres a difference between having good ideas, and there are several percolating in your mind, and taking them to the next stage. By the end of the week, when Mercury meets your ruler Saturn, ideally youll have thought these through and be ready to discuss plans with others. Heartbreaking as saying farewell to ideas or concepts youve been nourishing for a very long time may be, they really are on their way out. Mourn for them if you must, but then focus on the new, and far more appropriate, activities coming your way. They will soon prove so exciting that you completely forget the past. Few things are more thrilling than being swept away by something exciting and intriguing. Others are warning you to be careful. However, your instincts are telling you that this is even better than it seems. It is, as will be borne out by amazing events around the end of the week. Last weekends full moon may have accented certain unfair arrangements, and brought both the issues and your feelings to a head. But they also forced you to reveal more than you thought wise. Only now are you realising this is exactly what others needed to hear from you all along. Just days ago certain individuals simply couldnt recognise the potential ideas you found so promising. Now theyre viewing these more seriously, yet they also seem to have seized possession of them. Annoying as saying nothing while they take all the credit may be, its likely the only way youll get them to co-operate. Others have a free-wheeling approach to joint ventures which doesnt suit you. Raise your concerns now, and in detail. If theyre dismissive initially, events will soon show just how right you were. And, happily, youll already have made them aware of what needs to be dealt with. Although you can be fearless when it comes to looking after the interests of others, youre often far less forthright about more personal matters. However, if you dont make it abundantly clear to certain people that youre unhappy with things as they are, theyll assume youre contented. Which is by no means true. Youve had a little while to analyse the events triggered by your ruler Marss stunning aspect to the unreliable Uranus. While youre seriously intrigued, others are urging caution, which means proceeding slowly and asking lots of questions. That may be good advice. But with things moving so swiftly, its now or never.
