While this made sense then, things have moved on. To the extent, in fact, you owe it to yourself to discuss these frankly and openly. Besides, others know more than you think. Finally, events are forcing these out in the open, enabling you to ask a few questions and, importantly, get a few answers. What you learn could be as much of a surprise as it is a relief. On the contrary, they often clear the air. However, certain individuals seem to approach every discussion as if it were a confrontation, which complicates matters and can be exhausting.
Carefully choose a time, then discuss their aggressive manner. Changes, probably within a few days, could shift the focus to entirely different matters. However, the problem is as much about a lack of communication as it is the actual situation. Tempting as it is to talk things over, for the moment, say nothing.
Things are likely to work out, if at the last minute. The big question is how? Ironically, once you begin talking things over, the rest will be easy. The last thing you want to do is upset anybody. Yet your frustration with certain matters that are becoming more complicated by the day is nearing boiling point. Say exactly that to those whose indecisiveness is causing those problems. Discuss existing options and, even more, make a point of devising others. With so much in transition, the line between circumstances that are unchanging and those that were once fixed but which are beginning to shift is increasingly unclear.
Tomorrow's horoscope - Thursday, 10 October, 12222
You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Not only can you raise these, discussions are likely to be surprisingly uncomplicated. Now, however, you must win certain pivotal individuals over to this way of thinking. Ironically, their attitude is far more flexible than yours. Raise and discuss these ideas.
That will do the trick. The irony is, those individuals who somewhat intimidate you are no better informed than you are.
Knowing that will change everything. Being a Libra, you avoid conflicts, although some born under your sign thrive on them. State your case, then back off. That being the case, resist the temptation to battle issues now but, instead, focus on decluttering your thinking and your life. As much of a relief as it is that certain increasingly urgent issues are finally getting attention, the resulting discussions are endless. The problem is that you, as a quick-thinking fire sign, will express your views, swiftly and clearly.
But others will take longer or, in certain cases, be unsure what to say. At the moment, however, events seem to have taken that first, sudden, step on your behalf. Do as you normally would. Wait, watch and learn. Facts may be exactly that, facts. But with so much in transition, even seemingly solid arrangements are being rethought, if not subject to a top to bottom review. Once those changes have taken place, life will be far less complicated than it has been.
The time has come to take a firm stance, if not be demanding. Forget about being sympathetic and take a firm stance. Your birthday chart underlines the importance not only of dealing with these, but with keeping more up to date with tedious issues of this nature.

By no means are you stubborn. Many of those born under the sign Cancer are conscious of the strong intuition that comes with being a water sign. If you sense something needs your attention, take action.
However, with Mercury having just moved to accent these, and it being joined by tactful Venus, on Tuesday, frank discussions regarding issues could go amazingly smoothly. During much of August, you faced a range of obstacles. Some involved gathering crucial information, others standing up to certain difficult individuals. Forget arguing but, instead, stand your ground firmly. The planet of action and confrontation, Mars, has moved into Libra for a six-week stay. However, with Mercury and the charming Venus both moving into Scorpio within a few days, that will change, and suddenly.
However, with the foundation on which these are based shifting, and probably several times over the coming week or so, even seemingly solid plans will change, and change again. Once things are more settled, you can update your own plans. Obviously, new ideas and changes need to be discussed before they turn into reality. But many are out of your hands, which means either battling arrangements you regard as unrealistic or simply waiting to see what happens.
Opt for the latter. True, the Pisces Full Moon was three weeks ago. You needed to both gather facts and review the situation in depth. As a Libra, and a logical air sign, you long ago realised that as important as what you say and do may be, being prepared to take the initiative can be crucial. While this change in attitude will be as sudden as it is unexpected, it will also be a huge relief. When you first raised questions about already tense issues, your intention was to encourage discussion. However, the resulting exchange of ideas swiftly descended into a clash of egos, including you.
But events, early next week, will force them to adopt a more flexible approach. That should do the trick. Ironically, that may be your best option. The fact is, certain matters need time and thought. This slower pace will provide for that, and pleasure in the process as well. Sudden changes in plans are always annoying, especially when they demand you rethink existing arrangements. There is no wrong way to speak the truth, although in the past, certain individuals have criticised your way of raising any such issues.
This is actually their strategy for avoiding the matters in question. Planning ahead may be a virtue. Judging by the current crop of twists and turns in circumstances, the more flexible both arrangements and your thinking are, the better.
Tomorrow’s Horoscope, Thursday 10 October
Each is teaching you to be more direct, if not forthright. Sometimes obstacles are exactly that, difficulties to be overcome as swiftly and easily as possible. Recently, however, a few have left you with more questions than you have answers. While that may be true, you need the variety of insights they can offer.
Explain the nature of your concerns, saying you value their insights but must make your own decisions. These particularly accent the variety of discussions necessary for an understanding to be achieved, which is in turn part of a far reaching plan. Things will come together, if at the last minute. Few things disappoint you more than having to acknowledge that somebody simply has no intention of doing as they promised. The real issue is the individual in question is unreliable.
Acknowledge that, and everything else will make sense. For now, focus on the latter. The rest can wait. Keep it that way. Yes, that means sidestepping discussions involving the matters in question. That will require tact but, still, is by far the best option. Better yet, what you learn now will prove handy when the need to make those changes arise, as is likely soon. As a Leo and a fire sign, you rarely suffer from the shy self-consciousness others do.
Yet you, too, have sensitive sides of your nature, some of which are currently especially vulnerable. Instead of avoiding these, discuss them openly. Not only will this help others with their struggles, it will boost your spirits, as well. On a more mundane level, you might be moving or renovating; use the full moon's energy to purge whatever you don't want to carry with you any longer into your new space! The sun's connection with Jupiter points to a leap in emotional growth and an inspiring energy for deep, inner work.
October 14 finds messenger planet Mercury making a helpful connection with Saturn and creating a supportive energy, especially around discussions about the future. It's a great time to hammer out details with groups or associations you want to work with. Again, be mindful of egos and control issues that may emerge as the sun clashes with Pluto that same day. Stay flexible, but if you feel like someone is being manipulative or shady, bring in a third party to help mediate any disagreements.
An especially empathetic energy flows in your communications on October 15 as Mercury connects with Neptune. This is also an amazing time to explore your spirituality or read up on intuitive development. Secrets are shared and intriguing news comes your way on October 19 as Mercury connects with Pluto. You're feeling appreciated and secure, especially in your social life, on October 20 as Venus connects with Saturn. Romance flows on October 21 as Venus connects with Neptune, creating a perfect vibe for being whisked off your feet.
Even if you're not in the mood for love, this is a brilliant time to connect with people on a deep level. If Libra season is all about your career, Scorpio season, which begins on October 23, is all about the fun you have after work: the hobbies you enjoy, the groups and associations you work with toward causes you're passionate about, and the space you make for yourself to imagine the future.
October 25 is an especially intriguing day to network as Venus connects with Pluto, finding you mingling with VIPs. Watch out for frustration on October 27 as warrior planet Mars runs into the big brick wall that is Saturn: Rejection is in the air, and no one is very happy about it. That said, October 27 is also the new moon in Scorpio, so make time to slow down. A new cycle is beginning, especially in your social life. It's natural to feel unclear about the future at this time, but things are only just beginning!
A rebellious energy is in the air on October 28 as the sun opposes Uranus, bringing drama descending onto your social life yet again. You may witness a few breakups and even go through some of your own if you and your partners are inflexible not just in your love life, but in your creative partnerships as well. Fortunately, a lighter, easier energy for connecting takes place as chatty Mercury meets charming Venus on October 30, bringing a fun energy to your social life!
Many of the conversations and decisions you have and make this month will be reconsidered over the next few weeks thanks to Mercury retrograde, which begins on October 31 in Scorpio. Avoid starting new projects; instead, try picking something back up that was on the back burner. Expect to run into old friends, but avoid traveling or making big purchases at this time, and watch out for miscommunications and delays. Good luck this month, Capricorn, and see you in November!
