STARS with Shelley von Strunckel
aries Mar 21 / Apr 20 leo Jul 24 / Aug 23 sagittarius Nov 23 / Dec 22
What began as casual discussions about seemingly unimportant matters have brought highly significant issues to the surface. While you wouldn’t think this the ideal moment to begin discussing such matters, there’s no better time. Better yet, once you begin, you’ll have an enormous sense of relief that you’ve finally had the courage to tackle them.
You’d rather face a difficult fact than live with an untruth. As you’ve learned over the past few days, when it comes to such matters, not everybody has the same courageous approach to life that you do. Rather, certain individuals have made it clear that they’re unwilling even to discuss the issues in question.
You’ve just learned that somebody you’ve trusted has been holding out on you, and you’re both angry and devastated. However, before you say too much, reflect on certain recent situations in which you said less than you could have. Your excuse was avoiding unnecessary dramas. Still, there’s not a lot of difference between then and now.
taurus Apr 21 / May 20 virgo Aug 24 / Sep 23 capricorn Dec 23 / Jan 20
Being an earth sign, you’ve a knack for dealing with even the more challenging of situations both cleverly and constructively. But what’s just come your way has you foxed and feeling somewhat panicked, particularly as it involves finances or your resources. Challenging as this seems now, you’ll soon figure out a brilliant solution.
Being ruled by the planet of ideas and expression, Mercury, you’re skilled at explaining even the most complex of situations in a way others understand easily. That will prove extraordinarily helpful now. Not only do others need to have the obvious clarified for them, it needs to be presented in a manner that makes argument impossible.
Life will be a lot easier when you and those you must work or live with are viewing pivotal plans from the same perspective, which is by no means the case now. This can only be accomplished by thoughtful discussion. Time consuming as this may be, there’s no doubt that it’s an investment in your future.
gemini May 21 / June 21
You thought that when you discussed recent troublesome situations with others, they were being as frank as you were. But now you’re beginning to realise that they were speaking in half-truths. Tedious as going over everything may be, not only will it eliminate any potential misunderstandings, what you learn about their strategy could prove useful.
libra Sep 24 / Oct 23
You’re by no means secretive. Yet there are certain facts you keep to yourself, mostly because you feel that discussing them would only upset others. That might be true. But still, they’re important. If in doubt whether or not to mention these, just think how you’d feel if somebody kept the same facts from you.
aquarius Jan 21 / Feb 19
A combination of recent frank discussions and the insights triggered by changes in the attitude and behaviour of others has revealed that you really must review certain relationships. This is likely to reveal an imbalance. But it’s others who’d have to mend their ways, as you’re doing far more giving than you are receiving.
cancer Jun 22 / Jul 23
You’re only now discovering that those who swore they told you everything weren’t exactly being honest. If you confront them, however, you’ll realise that this variety of half-baked truth is what they consider to be honesty. Shocking as that is, there’s one advantage. At least you now know exactly the sort of person you’re dealing with.
scorpio Oct 24 / Nov 22
When you neglected to mention certain plans to others, you weren’t excluding them. You simply regarded those arrangements as not really being their affair. Not only do they beg to differ, they’re very hurt about this. You may not have intended to upset them, but still, it’s easier to apologise and put it all behind you.
pisces Feb 20 / Mar 20
After having tried every possible way to get the point across to others without being blunt, you’re finally realising subtlety isn’t going to work. The fact is, they’ve been well aware what you wanted them to do, but have also known you were unlikely to confront them. So when you do, they’re bound to be shocked.
