But when something holds little interest for you its difficult to summon enthusiasm. Forget about keeping others happy, just be honest. Once its clear how you feel, theyre unlikely to force the issue further. A gentle refusal may maintain your popularity, but it will also cause considerable confusion. You really have no choice but to state frankly what you intend to do, and why. Once youve acquainted others with the reasons behind your stand, theyll realise you really had no choice. When you make an agreement, you regard it as unconditional, subject to unexpected difficulties. However, one particular individual takes the view that all agreements are tentative and meant to be reviewed, refined and, perhaps, radically changed. Bearing this in mind will make dealing with this individual a lot easier. Sticking to certain increasingly challenging arrangements doesnt show courage and fortitude. On the contrary, with each passing day youre putting yourself in a more vulnerable position. Discuss your concerns frankly with others and theyll reveal theyve been just as worried. You find it difficult to believe a resolution for certain persistent dilemmas even exists. Theyve been a part of your life for such a long time that youve almost become accustomed to them. Still, its worth exploring the suggestions of somebody whose wisdom you respect. Youll be amazed how well their ideas can work. Of the 12 signs, you are perhaps the most idealistic. Now that youre facing the fact you may have to give up on one particular project, you wonder if you arent making a grave compromise. Actually, youre merely replacing something that doesnt work with something far better. While youre not secretive by nature, you long ago learned that tricky topics are best sidestepped during tense times, like now. If others ask why youre avoiding the issues, be frank. Tell them that you think it would be better to delay discussions until the general mood has improved. It appears that you have encountered a consummate game player. Their habitual way of manoeuvring is to ensure they keep everybody but them off balance. This enables them to treat others as if they were nothing more than chess pieces to be moved on a board. If youre not wary, theyll do that with you. Youve been exploring ways to improve on certain unrewarding elements of your life. In some cases you knew what was needed and took action right away. But others have mystified you. Wait until this weekends new moon, which provides insights that could become astonishingly helpful. In the two years since Mars was last in your sign, the circumstances around you have changed and so have you. More, perhaps, than you realise. Now that youre dealing with the influence of this dynamic and courageous planet, youll begin to recognise those areas where you need to make major alterations. Sometimes its important to stand your ground with others, even if you know that makes a battle inevitable. However, theres one particular situation in which youre beginning to realise that whether you confront the individual involved or ignore them, it makes no difference. Theyll do exactly what they please anyway. Answer:crease-tea-more(singerChristyMoore) No 658 ACROSS 6. Watery (7) 7. Narrative (5) 9. Devoutness (5) 10. Advent (7) 12. Incitement (11) 14.
