Necessity, as the Greek philosopher Plato observed, is the mother of invention. If a task needs doing that requires a diligent and urgent approach applied to it, then is there anyone better than you to do it? That's unlikely at any time, and it's even less likely now! There are times when the need for something becomes essential, and we're forced to find ways of getting or achieving it. Now is such a time for you. Rise confidently to this challenge.
We tend to resent delays but also forget or overlook how helpful they can be. There are times when a delay encourages us to take stock of a certain situation or assess it in way we hadn't been able to. This can often lead to a revelation and one that highlights how we could be doing something better. That's why whatever is delayed in an area of your world needs to be appreciated, not begrudged.
A wave of optimism making its way into your world could be wonderful on some levels but problematic if it causes your focus to become erratic. This is a time to ensure you finish what you start and don't allow yourself to go off on tangents that might appear more appealing or interesting. It can be easy to put yourself in a position where you start many tasks or projects but finish none at this time.
Until such time vehicles are fitted with helicopter blades, we have no choice other than to accept the slowness that comes from traffic jams. We can swear and curse as much as we want to but doing either or both won't help with making progress with something beyond our control. Try to bear that in mind with any delays you experience in any area of your world. This is a time to accept they exist for a reason you're unlikely to be able to influence.
When we're not being listened to, we can still keep working on our message or whatever it is we must convey, so we get it absolutely spot-on for when the time comes when others do finally listen. Now appears to be such a time for you. If you've struggled to make a particular point or get others on your side recently, it might feel as if they're finally willing to listen or accept your views. Something extremely positive will result from this.
It might appear as if a plan or idea might receive a green light to proceed but this probably has more to do with others' willingness to be supportive or cooperative in ways they haven't been recently. You're able to take the proverbial reins in some way and help steer whatever-it-is in a direction it has needed to head toward for some time. This is your chance to shine, and you appear – understandably - very keen to seize it!
Standing your ground might appear to be the only option where a dispute is concerned, possibly in the workplace. However, doing so might only gain you the upper hand briefly because this issue is unlikely to be put to rest quickly. Although it's unlikely to have an indefinite shelf life, there's much you can do to help bring closure by being a bit more accommodating. Don't confuse this with allowing someone to 'have their way.' Taking the high road will gain you admiration and respect in time.
You're encouraging transparency in any dealings with others now. However, to help them to be more upfront or above board, you'll need to set the scene yourself. You might be one of the most private or secretive people those around you know but dropping your self-protective barrier is essential if you want others to do the same.
You might be aware of how others, possibly in the workplace, are focusing too intently on the finer details of something that needs to be done collectively. You can spot this because you're probably aware of how you've done so yourself recently. However, it's the bigger picture of a particular plan that inspires you the most and spurs you on to leave the devil in the details. The more you encourage others to focus on a future vision, the sooner you'll all arrive there.
Your curiosity is your greatest ally at this time. You're unlikely to settle for immediately obvious answers and want to dig deeper to find concealed facts. Your determination to uncover the truth in any situation could attract the attention of others who might question your methodology, but they'll soon see the very clear method in what might appear to be madness initially.
A challenge presenting itself might appear familiar but demands you tackle it in a new and possibly unorthodox way. Once you get your unusual exploration underway, feelings of uncertainty or unease will ease. Circumstances were undoubtedly different last time this challenge presented itself, but current ones bode extremely well for you to apply knowledge and experience unavailable previously.
You might feel uncomfortable with having to take someone's word regarding a career or professional matter, but it's important to accept they might know more about what they're talking about than you do. Rather than focus on or become frustrated with your perceived professional shortfalls or weaknesses, shine a bright light on what you are confidently capable of. That's what someone needs to know.
