STARS & PUZZLES PUZZLES&FUN London Lite Monday, 9 November 2009 31 Intheright-handpicture,Laurassleeveislonger,thereisanextrapink patchonherskirt,thestripesononepatchhavechangeddirection,the shadowofherfingerismissingandashapebehindherisupsidedown Certain arrangements that once suited you and others are reaching a natural end. You neednt be concerned that the individuals in question will be upset. They, too, are aware the time has come for a serious reorganisation. Actually, if you bring it up, theyll be so relieved theyll happily agree to whatever you suggest. Ordinarily, when somebody tries to withdraw from an arrangement, you wonder if theyve been doing things behind your back. Judging by this weeks planetary activity, however, those individuals had no choice, and are rather embarrassed about changing direction. Hence their silence. You may have been in a hurry or regarded others questions as unnecessary, so dismissed them with only a few words. Whatever the reason, youre now having to pay the price for that haste in the form of misunderstandings or confusion on the part of those concerned. This time, talk things through. Frustrating as discovering that somebody has been careless about the facts may be, its not as much of a disaster as you think. By the weeks close, youll have revised your plans anyway, and therell have been plenty of opportunity to ensure that all your information is correct. While the odds are good that your plans will succeed, be prepared for the path to be bumpy, requiring that you adopt some unusual strategies and make changes. And all during the course of this week. Exhausting as this sounds, the effort you invest will be more than compensated for by your remarkable progress. There is no way you can get through this week, with its numerous difficult aspects by the communication planet Mercury, and avoid the odd clash or misunderstanding. But bizarrely, when you look back, youll recognise these seemingly inconvenient moments as having been significant. With both the sun and your ruler Venus in the partnership angle of your chart, you must leave decisions to others. If youre lucky, their decisions will be no surprise. But judging by their current mood, they could opt for something as disruptive or outrageous as it is unexpected. A good idea is always worth considering, even when you know it would upset existing plans. True, initially others are bound to complain. Stand firm and dont give in. Once theyve had a chance to learn more and reflect on what youve told them, their attitude will be transformed, and youll be regarded as a genuine hero. Few things are worse than witnessing battles between those you care about that you know could be averted. But if you have offered advice and been refused, then you must leave it up to them. Hopefully, if left to their own devices, theyll get to the bottom of the issues in question. When making promises, they were based on already shaky situations. While youd have been wise to warn others you may be unable to keep those commitments, you didnt want to create doubts. Now that changes are inevitable, view them as alterations and discuss them in those terms, since thats really all they are. Sometimes obstacles are nothing more than a nuisance that distracts you and slows progress. But those youre facing at the moment are designed to make you stop and notice what youre doing and, more importantly, to realise that youre basing decisions more on the past than what youre dealing with in the present.
