IN&OUTTONIGHT STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN2 28 Tuesday, 6 October 2009 London Lite Intheright-handpicture,Naomiessleeveisyellow,hershirtislonger, thereisanextraclasponherpurse,someofthehaybaleismissingand thereisanextralightontheceiling Dont mistake taking a tough line with somebody whos proving troublesome, with being unsympathetic to their plight. Because youre aware of the problems theyre dealing with, youre tolerant. Too tolerant. While this means that setting a clear limit for them is more difficult, the longer you wait, the worse it will be. By embracing one particular plan, youll have to give up certain others. While theres nothing to prevent you trying to juggle them all, youll soon realise that youre not only spreading yourself thin, but that in concentrating on one, you cant possibly give anything your best. Earlier this week you guessed the time or cost of certain activities. Now Mercurys encounter with the precise Saturn indicates that arrangements have reached the point at which you must commit, youre urged to go over things carefully. An inaccurate estimate early on could cause you problems later. Others seemed far more excited about recent developments than you were. At the time, you assumed they hadnt anticipated the problems, and once they did, would be less enthusiastic. Now that they have, they are still thrilled, so its clear these are better than you anticipated. However much you enjoy what youre doing, your friends and loved ones are the core of your existence. So when something disrupts these precious relationships, youre concerned. You neednt be. The changes taking place may be unsettling, but youll soon realise that theyve also introduced a fresh perspective. Think carefully about what, and who, you put first in your life. While much of what youre doing has evolved, your priorities have remained unchanged. This is already creating confusion. If you dont invest a little time in reassessing these, youll soon run into serious problems. Theres a difference between things going as you planned, and proceeding in a direction thats in your best interests. Disruptive as developments seem now, by Fridays alliance between your ruler and the planet of innovation, Uranus, youll recognise them as genuine breakthroughs. Sometimes youre astonished by the lack of imagination of certain individuals. Youre only just now turning recent exciting ideas into more solid arrangements, and they want hard facts and promises. Tedious as this is, their questions are pertinent, and what you learn could influence the shape of your plans. The dramas triggered by the recent full moon are lingering. True, others said more than they should have. But you were also overwrought, and may have misinterpreted what was expressed. Now that things are calmer, ask just exactly what those involved meant. You may be surprised. Youll never know whether one particular individual was actually trying to take advantage of you or hadnt really considered the impact of their arrangements. Its not worth asking. Instead make it abundantly clear that these would cost you dearly, and you expect things reorganised on a more equitable basis. Right now. Ordinarily, finalising plans while youre still learning about what youre involved in would be very unwise. But with Mercury meeting the practical Saturn, the moment has come to deal with practicalities and tie up loose ends. While a certain number of changes are inevitable, you can tackle them as they appear. Answer:chair-rum-e-gnaw-thumb(actorJeremyNortham) No 652 ACROSS 1. Loss of power of action (9) 8. Possess (3) 9.

The rest of the world is not as cautious and thorough as you are. But as youre well aware, certain individuals have never been cautious and have no intention of adopting that behaviour now.
