However, the current aspect between Mercury and the unpredictable Uranus indicates events are unexpected and sudden. Tell those involved. They may be annoyed, but once you explain, theyll understand. Only days ago, you were fighting to keep certain arrangements as they were. But what youve learned since has made you realise that times have changed and so, too, must those plans. Now you have the task of justifying to others changes you recently rejected, and with conviction. The only way youll overcome others opposition to your plans is to discuss their objections point by point, which is exactly what youve been trying to avoid. Dull as both the process and the individuals involved might be, you have a choice. Face things as they are, or risk those obstacles remaining firmly ensconced. Generally youd regard anybody who changed plans at the last minute as both unreliable and inconsiderate. Now that youve been put in exactly that kind of situation yourself, however, youve a better understanding of others actions. You may even find yourself seeking their advice. Be conscious of your perfectionist tendencies. While, ultimately, ensuring things are done properly will be vital, at the moment flexibility is far more important. The actual situations youre dealing with are changing, frequently within hours. Permit any rigidity in your thinking and you could face serious problems. Youve been covering up certain facts to protect someone. Actually, those individuals who you think youre protecting are well aware theres something unspoken. Once youre speaking frankly, youll recognise that being anything less than honest is actually damaging the relationship. There are occasions when even the most challenging of situations can be dealt with in a civilised manner. This isnt one of them. If you want to get others attention, youll need to be bold. This may not be your style. Stick to what youve done in the past, and youll be ignored. When you made certain promises things were going far more smoothly than they are right now. Acknowledge that to yourself and, just as importantly, to others and you can begin discussing a new plan that everybody will be happy with. Know that if you wait much longer, your position will become increasingly difficult. Current circumstances are demanding that you have to start relying on those you dont really know well, or with whom youve never previously faced obstacles. In the absence of experience, exchange your ideas frequently. This should do wonders for trust and mutual understanding. Being the soul of generosity, youll often offer to lend others a hand before youve given serious thought to whats involved. While ordinarily thats no problem, at the moment it could become one. As there are only 24 hours in each day, youll either have to explain you cant do as promised or cancel other commitments. Little frustrates you more than those who insist on talking over plans when theyre better made as things progress. While that might save time, it would mean you begin lacking facts that would prove very helpful. Making essential decisions will take only minutes and could save days, if not weeks of extra effort.

Upsetting others is never fun, but its particularly worrying when youve unwittingly hurt somebody you care about deeply. Tempting as it is to hope theyll get over it, that would only make it worse.
