IN&OUTTONIGHT STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN2 34 Monday, 19 October 2009 London Lite Intheright-handpicture,thebadgeonPrinceWilliamshatisupside down,hehasanextramedal,thebottomofhissashismissing,the middlebandofhisbeltisredandhisrankbadgeisfurtheruphissleeve As youre aware, decision-making can be an agonising experience. So once youve finally got things organised, you stick with plans. Thats understandable. Still, during this unsettled but highly creative cycle, youre better off regarding all arrangements as loose. This way, you can change them as often as is necessary. The current expansive mood has everybody eagerly discussing all sorts of intriguing concepts. Youre interested, but regard most of these as unwise. This highlights your tendency to be suspicious of the new or unfamiliar, emphasising your inquisitive side. At least ask about them. You cant, and shouldnt, ignore a good notion. Still, before you explore it with too much vigour, consider whether pursuing it would mean undoing a great deal of organising that youve only just done. Reflect on this carefully now, before youre so excited about its promise that youve reached the point of no return. Because you pride yourself on being logical, you take care not to be seduced by the variety of trendy thinking that youve witnessed others falling for. But somebody has introduced you to something you find so persuasive, you cant resist exploring it. Go ahead and broaden your horizons. You try to maintain a serious and somewhat intellectual facade, but deep down youre a real romantic. This hidden tender-hearted side of you is being touched by the genuine kindness of one particular individual. Let them know how much it has affected you. It could be the start of a wonderful friendship. Or something more. Youre clear what you think and what you believe but you keep most of it to yourself. But a certain individual has drawn you into discussions that are not only taking on epic proportions, you are beginning suspect theyre designed to win you over. Tell them its not working. Its not cruel, its kind. When others suggest ideas you immediately recognise as impractical, you wonder what they are thinking. But they have insights into the changes that are developing of which you are completely unaware. Only once you know more will you realise just how clever their concepts are. While some Geminis play it cool, others wear their heart on their sleeve. Between your quick wit and tendency to be embarrassed by overly sentimental situations, youve said too little. Unfortunately, thats caused confusion, which means you must explain where you stand or face dramas youve tried to avoid. Reorganising elements of your daily life or domestic setup seemed pointless. Yet when the events triggered by the recent new moon forced you to do exactly that, you had no choice. These changes worked so well that youre wondering why you waited so long, and are considering more. There are several pivotal situations coming up where decisions need to be made. Youre also under pressure to make them sooner rather than later. Still, youre better off waiting until the end of the week, when your ruler, the Sun, moves into the part of your chart that accents the very structure of your life. Its understandable that youre upset about recent disappointments. But theyre no loss. Although it probably doesnt feel like it right now, youre in fact better off without these activities in your life. While it may take some time for the full story to surface, once it does youll realise what a close call you had. Answer:g-me-mug-oven(writerJimmyMcGovern) No 661 ACROSS 4. Debate (7) 8.
