Chinchilla News - - LIFE - with Patsy Ben­nett


The key to progress this week lies in good peo­ple skills. This week­end’s busy and intense tone may re­ver­ber­ate through­out the week, en­abling you to get on top of fam­ily mat­ters, in­ter­per­sonal dy­nam­ics and train your mind on your favourite ac­tiv­i­ties as ways to re­lax in times of stress. This week­end and mid­week are flash­points for po­ten­tial con­flict, so en­sure you ra­di­ate calm!


Where your work and daily sched­ule leave lit­tle time for self-nur­tur­ing, this is the week to change things so you feel em­pow­ered and hap­pier in your daily life. Progress now comes down to val­ues, and events this week will point out where your val­ues are spot-on; and where you might tweak them to cre­ate a more re­al­is­tic ap­proach to life’s ev­ery­day de­mands.


Saturn in your sign is at a dif­fi­cult an­gle with Mer­cury, sug­gest­ing you may have missed a key de­tail in a trans­ac­tion, es­pe­cially fi­nan­cially. You may sim­ply learn some­thing about some­one you have un­til now not re­alised. Luck­ily, your in­ves­tiga­tive abil­i­ties are on top form. You’ll en­joy find­ing out more. Avoid over­spend­ing and con­flict, es­pe­cially this week­end and mid­week.


If talks and travel seem a lit­tle more intense or com­plex than usual this week, blame Mars and Pluto. Th­ese plan­ets are at coun­ter­point this week, bring­ing tem­pers and tantrums, dis­agree­ments and con­trary views into the open. The good news is that, if you de­cide to fo­cus on hard work and col­lab­o­ra­tions, you could ex­cel, es­pe­cially fi­nan­cially. You may also ex­pe­ri­ence an ego boost.


Your goals and aims are on tar­get, but you might con­sider where you can de­vote more time and en­ergy to your sta­tus and di­rec­tion. And, if your ca­reer is thriv­ing, this week’s events will ask that you self-nur­ture, and nur­ture those you love more. You may find, oth­er­wise, that intense in­ter­ac­tions take your en­ergy away from trea­sured ac­tiv­i­ties that would oth­er­wise bring you joy.


You’re bet­ter known for be­ing me­thod­i­cal and over­com­ing ob­sta­cles; and less so for your sen­si­tiv­i­ties and vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties.

And yet, this week, you may be in­clined to let slip some truths that some­one close may be sur­prised about. Be pre­pared for some­one to bare their soul in turn; per­haps they need the help that you’re adept at sup­ply­ing. Avoid con­flict as it’s likely to es­ca­late.


Pre­pare to ex­cel, es­pe­cially if you’re the kind of Twin who thrives on pres­sure. And, while you tend to live off your nerves, it’s im­por­tant this week to sup­port your ner­vous sys­tem with ton­ics and rest and re­lax­ation, or you may find that the busy tone of the week gets the bet­ter of you. Luck­ily, work and your gen­eral sta­tus should flour­ish, but you must avoid ego bat­tles.


As Jupiter gains in­flu­ence in your sign, there is an el­e­ment of drama, and you may ex­pe­ri­ence this as joy and vi­tal­ity – or as op­po­si­tion to your plans. If the lat­ter, it’s im­por­tant that you il­lus­trate your plans to those who are im­pacted by them, step by step, so that an in­clu­sive – rather than an ex­clu­sive – ap­proach pre­vails. Then, you’ll be ready to en­joy a change of pace.


You’re a help­ful soul, and yet some­times, you can over­step the mark of what is your re­spon­si­bil­ity. This week, if you feel you’re sim­ply giv­ing more than you’re re­ceiv­ing, it’s im­por­tant you state your case mat­ter-of-factly, and back up your ideas with facts, or com­mu­ni­ca­tions could be­come heated. This aside, you can make con­sid­er­able progress at work and fi­nan­cially.


The align­ment of the Sun, Mer­cury and Mars in Can­cer op­po­site pow­er­house Pluto spells two out­comes: pow­er­ful progress – or po­ten­tial con­flict. The choice, to a de­gree, is yours. You’ll em­power your­self this week by pay­ing care­ful at­ten­tion to dis­cus­sions, pa­per­work and ne­go­ti­a­tions, but you’ll wreak havoc if you pan­der to un­re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tions and en­gage in con­flict.


In­ner tension can be ex­pressed in many dif­fer­ent ways. If you’re un­aware you’re fun­da­men­tally con­flicted in some of the ac­tiv­i­ties you do this week, tension may be ex­pressed as out­bursts, er­ratic be­hav­ior or un­hap­pi­ness. If you’re aware of your in­ter­nal con­flict, you can re­solve mat­ters. This week, sort out ar­eas that are not work­ing; you’ll be sur­prised by your progress.


A great wave of feel­ings in­di­cates you re­ally wish to en­joy your­self this week, and to in­dulge in your favourite ac­tiv­i­ties with favourite peo­ple. But events may have some­thing else in store, so en­sure you plan some time out or you may be swept off your feet by oth­ers’ de­mands. Work out where the line is that you will not cross in be­ing help­ful to oth­ers, or you may feel put upon.
