STARS&PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN Intheright-handpicture,Lilyshairisshorter,herlipstickhaschanged colour,oneofthedarkstripsonherdresshasmoved,theANDnow saysDNAinthebackgroundandthemanontheposterhasalargerhat Obviously youre going to discuss what youre planning with others involved. But bear in mind that your ideas are being influenced as much by your intuition as hard facts, and itll therefore be rather difficult to get across. So much that in some situations, youll discover that the less you say, the better it will be. It may seem early to prepare for the Scorpio new moon in mid-November. But there are some areas of your life in which youre stuck and would benefit from some insights. Reflect on these and youll be ready for the fresh perspective that appears, as if by magic, in a months time. With the Sun and, as of next week, Mercury both accenting certain situations over which youve had little control of late, you must finally face up to these. Initially, youll try to deal with them yourself. But this wont work. Once you realise that everything is best left to others, the rest will be remarkably easy. Its the rare Capricorn wholl take a chance without knowing exactly whats involved. However, youre being lured into one particular venture by somebody whos expert at overcoming your resistance. While thats by no means accurate, this particular risk could well be worth taking. For some reason, youve treated certain increasingly intense, but pleasant, emotions as if they were a state secret. This may be because they rouse feelings of vulnerability that you dont know how to deal with. The sooner you discuss these openly, the more swiftly youll get past this awkward and uncomfortable stage. After reflecting on certain rather peculiar offers, the situation is clearer. Your instincts told you that others had good intentions. But their suggestions were wide of the mark only because they didnt know what was needed. Talk things over and theyll adjust things accordingly. Dont confuse sticking with what youve committed to, with loyalty to others. Their attitude about the situation has changed. Begin asking some questions and your attitude will change also. Waste no time mulling this over. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to extricate yourself. The best way to deal with the current, rather difficult, mood of one particular individual is to do a lot of listening and very little talking. They may well ask for your advice. Offer it though, and youll soon find youre getting the blame for what is, essentially, their lack of judgment. The less you say, the better. While relying on your instincts is easy when the situation involved is of a purely personal nature, those that have to do with joint decisions can be very tricky. If others cant understand why you feel the way you do, dont try to explain. Simply tell them theyll have to trust you. As a Leo, youre not naturally suspicious. Yet one individual has been so cagey about certain plans that even you are wondering what theyre up to. The answer is, something devious. Since direct questioning wont achieve much, youll need to wait until next weeks revelations to discover what theyre plotting. Often, when you disagree with others, youll battle it out then and there and keep at it until youve achieved an accord. Thus, when you walk away, everythings settled. In one particular situation you didnt do this, and its now proving troublesome. No matter how pressing other matters are, make this your priority.
