Waste no time trying to find a solution for these. Things are changing so swiftly that whatever you organise, the circumstances involved wouldnt last long enough to justify your effort. Do only whats easy, and nothing more. Loyalty comes high on your list of virtues. You demand it of yourself and expect it from those closest. Which is the reason youre so troubled by the questionable behaviour of one particular individual. Dont judge by what you see. The story is a more complex one than you realise. After a week that has been every bit as changeable as its been rewarding, youve a great deal to think about. So much that, pressing as numerous tasks seem, you really owe it to yourself to pause and reflect on your priorities. Judging by whats taken place, you might want to reconsider what needs to be dealt with first. You may be right to be suspicious of sudden offers or those that involve little effort from you. However, what has just come your way, under the influence of the bountiful Jupiter, is an exception. Its just as good as it seems and, once youve investigated, could prove even better. For the past two years, the grim but powerful Saturn has accented practical and financial matters, particularly those that involve others. While youve learned and accomplished a great deal, youll probably be relieved to know that at the end of the month it moves into a new sign, and you can enjoy a break. Sometimes a gentle no is all it takes to make others understand what you mean. At the moment, however, a subtle approach would only confuse matters more. The only way to say what needs to be said is to be blunt, and then ask direct questions that ensure your point has been made. Its unlike you to make plans one day and revise them the next. But with the circumstances youre dealing with in transition, even the simplest arrangements should be regarded as tentative. Knowing this, organise them so that when disruption arises, alterations can be made easily. While you can understand why certain individuals are feeling cautious about the new ideas that are currently adding much-needed zest to your life, that doesnt mean youre willing to let them interfere. When they proffer advice, therefore, listen with interest but make it clear that doesnt mean you intend to take it. Because you sometimes struggle with situations about which youre sensitive, youre hyper- conscious of those who seem touchy. In one particular case, however, the individual in question is using this as a ploy to avoid discussing certain topics. Dont be fooled by their little game. Theres a school of thought that says confrontations are best staged the moment you realise theres an issue that needs sorting. However, judging by the fact that Mars remains in the most strategic portion of your chart for only a few more days, then moves into Leo on 16 October, youd be far better off biding your time. When you were discussing certain exciting plans, you left out details you regarded as unimportant. At the time, they were. Now that things have changed and theyre of more consequence, talk them over with the individuals involved. Youre worried theyll be upset. Instead, theyll be interested in exploring them further.
