The coming week is likely to see a dramatic increase in communication on all fronts, but where it will prove most beneficial is in the area of work. There will be many who are attempting to do things that require carefully synchronized teamwork, and only by communicating effectively will such projects be realized. Anyone who underestimates the importance of talking out each and every step, and each and every detail, is sure to miss out -- and may actually see things come crashing down before the week is out. If everyone knows what to do, and when, then everything can get done as planned this week.
Some relationships may be strained, but this is something that cannot be overcome -- and should only prove dangerous if the cause of that strain remains unknown or misunderstood. Those who appreciate the importance of cause-and-effect can certainly rise above any ill feeling that might otherwise result.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Take the time to carefully and honestly assess your feelings about an opportunity that you know is fast approaching. Does it really speak to you? (April 5-April 19) -- Others may not understand just how you are able to do what you do -- but you can demonstrate once more that you are an expert in your field.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to work very quickly this week to assemble the right team for the job that lies ahead. The group dynamic is perhaps more important than anyone's expertise. (May 6-May 20) -- Trouble may be brewing on the home front, but not for the reasons you may expect. It's time to circle the wagons, perhaps.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may find yourself drawn to a certain group of people who display many characteristics that you have always found irresistible. They're likely to welcome you with open arms. (June 7-June 20) -- Don't let your own presumptions stand in your way this week; an open mind makes you available for all manner of new opportunities.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The mess made by another can be cleaned up rather quickly if you are put in charge; indeed, when all is said and done, no one may know anything untoward ever happened. (July 8-July 22) -- You're sitting pretty this week, though it doesn't mean that the workload will be any less. Rewards, however, should be considerable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Style and substance can be combined this week as you strive for something that others before you had only dreamed about. You can reach your goal ahead of schedule. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Someone in authority is likely to recognize that you are no flash in the pan; he or she offers you a deal.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Quality and quantity must both be considered carefully as you begin to stock up for something big that is just around the corner. Don't skimp! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may not understand what is driving another, but you can surely offer your support and do much to help make his or her dream come true.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You will want to keep your eye on the clock throughout the week; scheduling is perhaps more important right now than it has been for quite a while. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Give yourself a break today, and don't let others drive you to the point of frustration -- or, worse, to the point of calling it quits.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- It's a good week to call in favors from those who have benefited from your own involvement in the past. Be sure everyone knows what his or her job really is. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself on a strange kind of "seek and destroy" mission this week -- but remember, ultimately it's all in fun!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be the beneficiary of another's generosity this week -- and this, in turn, may speed up your development in a certain key area. You're ready to rock! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A conflict develops between you and one who thinks he or she is a suitable candidate for a job you really want.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Those in charge may not understand just what is required this week -- but you can settle any disputes by putting the job ahead of your own personal feelings. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A rendezvous of sorts gives you the opportunity to analyze how you feel about a situation you had only a small part in creating.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- What goes on around you this week may reach the level of controlled chaos unless you are able to exert a strong influence. Approach this from the top! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Someone who is calling the shots this week doesn't understand the psychological elements involved -- as you most certainly do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're likely to be asked more than once if you are planning to step forward and take control of something that only recently has lost its leader. (March 6-March 20) -- It's a good week to stay out of the spotlight if you can; others will be far more eager than you to attract such attention and scrutiny.
