IN&OUTTONIGHT STARS&PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN2 Intheright-handpicture,Agynessssleeveislonger,herstockingsare shorter,abuttonismissingfromhercoat,thezipismissingfromher bag,andtheladyinthebackgroundiswearingdifferentshoes Recently youve spent far too much time thinking about whether others are happy and far too little considering your own position. Because of that, youve actually undermined your standing with them. Talking this over will achieve nothing. Simply change your attitude. You come first, and theyre second. No discussion. Somebody has backed you into a corner. If you do as they wish, you will run into serious problems. But if you stand up to them, there will be problems with mutual friends. Or so they say. Think carefully about this. Or raise it with those friends. Their reaction could surprise you. Earlier this week your instincts told you that something wonderful was coming your way, and now it has. While the form and direction of these developments isnt exactly what youve been expecting, its worth pursuing. In fact, once Saturn moves into a new sign later this month, what has arisen will make sense. Its the rare Capricorn whose emotional wellbeing relies on the good humour of any one individual. However, judging by the clash between Venus and the unpredictable Uranus, even you could be struggling with the unsettling attitude of somebody whos managed to get under your skin. The best thing about clashes with others is the awareness that the relationship has weathered a storm and is now the better for it. This is especially the case now that youve finally been able to talk over issues with the kind of frankness that, in the past, youve avoided for fear of causing serious upset. At the beginning of the week, crises involving financial or practical matters had you in despair. But now not only are the situations concerned on an even keel, youre feeling more positive than for ages. Learn from this, and recognise that lifes challenges neednt ruin your day. This hardly seems the ideal time to confront those who are already struggling with difficult situations with yet more in the way of burdens. But much as youre dreading these discussions, once its clear whats concerning you, youll be surprised how open-minded theyre able to be. Occasionally you say more than you need to. But now, it would appear that whatever it is youre keeping to yourself could be causing you real problems. Its just you dont realise it, and wont until you begin to ask others if theres something wrong. Theyll have no hesitation telling you exactly whats bothering them. Others will learn far more if theyre allowed to make their own mistakes and then work out what went wrong than if you warn them. Still, dont be tempted to discuss your concerns. Soon enough their unwise decisions will cause them problems, and theyll be back, seeking your advice. Few things in life are more frustrating than situations in which others back out of commitments at the last minute. While you may fume about how inconsiderate they are, at least at first, youll quickly end up thanking them. In fact, once you realise why they had to make changes, youll begin making a few of your own. Just as you feared, sudden, unexpected and exciting developments are forcing you to alter plans you have only just agreed to. Discuss this frankly with others. Theyre just as influenced as you are. Once the talking is done and everybody understands whats involved, its unlikely that therell be any problem making changes. Answer:hairy-hood-e-knee(legendarymagicianHarryHoudini) No 654 ACROSS 1.
