STARS&PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Wednesday, 4 November 2009 33 Intheright-handpicture,Emilyhasalongersleeve,herdressis patternedtotheneckline,shehasnowatch,herhairhasmorelowlights, andabackgroundlogohasbeenremoved When you first began discussing certain plans, they seemed straightforward. Since then, various obstacles and objections have appeared. Tackle these as they show up, even if it results in head-on confrontations. Forget any hopes theyll clear up of their own accord. Wait, and theyll only become more complicated. Often, difficult issues are best left unspoken until youve devised a solution. However, with the ideas planet Mercury currently positioned in Scorpio, the time has come to air these and other matters youd usually keep to yourself. Youll be amazed how insightful others ideas are. Certain plans were agreed in a rush. So much so that you couldnt possibly have covered all the necessary details. Now some of those you neglected are coming to light. Discuss this now, and rework whatever portion of your arrangement needs to be reorganised. While disruptive, the results will constitute an improvement. Yet again youre juggling obligations and personal commitments, and the personal commitments are taking second place. While you may be unable to rearrange things right away, you can think about future plans and ensure theres no need to short- change those you care about most again. Usually, youve a wonderful instinct about others, one that enables you to get along with everybody, even those most find difficult. But you seem to have misjudged certain individuals recently, with the result theyre seriously upset. Waste no time on reflection. Ask whats wrong. The answer you get will surprise you. Time to confront somebody who has assumed youre happy to do things their way, despite your protestations. The problem is, you have been too gracious. The individual in question has a strong character. Unless you approach them with equal strength, they wont even notice what you say. For ages youve known youd have to deal with contentious issues on the domestic front. Deep down, youve been hoping somebody would say something provocative enough to trigger the necessary discussion. Since this hasnt happened, its now up to you to ensure these are cleared up. Youve encountered unimaginative people before, and will again. But someone now needs to have every stage of plans explained, and with the reason why. Tedious as this is, ultimately youll thank them, because in the process of review youll discover minor errors that would have surfaced at a far less convenient moment. In the past, youve sidestepped even mentioning contentious issues to one particular individual, knowing that youd have to acknowledge how strongly you differ. Now that time has come. State your views simply, without inviting debate, and youll get through this with relative ease. If you felt guilty about the harsh words you exchanged with others recently, youve apologised and put it all behind you. The individual in question, however, hasnt, which means you may need to review what happened all over again. Tedious as this seems, theres surprisingly lots still to be learned from the experience. Generally, youve no problem making decisions. But now, its almost as if youre frozen with doubt. Thats because you havent acknowledged how much you care about the situation or individual involved. Once you do, youll invest the thought and reflection necessary to reach a conclusion about what you should be doing.
