Beautiful Words and Diplomacy

“If you need something from somebody always give that person a way to hand it to you.”
— Sue Monk Kidd (The Secret Life of Bees)

The art of negotiation is an intricate skill. Words must be carefully chosen and a good tone makes all the difference.  If you miss the mark in either of those areas, you can lose what you seek to gain. Men know they must use  combination of words and tone that is pleasing to a woman they desire. Sometimes it can necessary to be flowery and poetic. At other times it may be necessary to be intellectual and direct. Sometimes you must also give up something in order to get something. Diplomacy is not a straight road; there are many twists and turns before you reach a mutual final destination. diplomacystoneSometimes, when one person will clearly lose the battle, it s also important to be gracious and allow them to save face. Mercury conjunct Venus in communicative, social Gemini will bring all this to our lives just before the lunar eclipse in Sagittarius. Diplomatic communication, social relations and awareness of others will be necessary for negotiations  agreements, and settlements that mark endings of longstanding matters ad bring release. What arose and cam to an end in your life at the April 24th lunar eclipse in Scorpio will now come to completion. You also had the benefit of the energy of a new beginning with the May 9th solar eclipse in Taurus, so you were not left empty-handed. You lost something then two weeks later gained something in its place that better serves you and is a better direction for you to take. Now, at this next eclipse, the past is to be fully released. In order to close this chapter in our lives, we may need to negotiate terms of surrender, finalize contracts and agreements, write letters, or give people the opportunity to concede without clearly being labeled “the loser” (and some us us will be on the receiving end of that opportunity). Win-win solutions will be easy to find under this Mercury/Venus conjunction. Mutuality, balance pleasant communication will be easy to achieve.

And more than that, of course, there is opportunity to verbally endear yourself to someone with words they want to hear, during this transit. It will be easier to overcome objections and find a solution that makes it possible for both of you to get what you want from the connection. That could be a romance, a business partnership, a mediation situation, The eclipse will terminate anything from the past that is not needed and what you are left with is the new beginning you got a glimpse of two weeks ago. Creativity, joviality, enthusiasm and optimism will be a part of the outcome if diplomacy is to (in terms of romance, friendship, business, partnership, or even an adversary!), talking gently and listening receptively can be the key that unlocks the door. You may also get new creative ideas from your interactions with people or from observing them.
