The coming week is likely to result in some confusion regarding duties and responsibilities, especially where close collaborations are concerned. Many will be reminded of the importance of clear and timely communication, and of the fact that no one interprets information exactly the same way. How, then, do people get on the same page? Though many may rely on long-distance communication aided by technology, the truth is that only face time can really solve the potential problem of hearing and interpreting things correctly.
Those in charge will want to tread lightly whenever a sensitive issue arises -- and when all is said and done, it is best both in the short and the long run to assume everyone is hoping for the best. To suppose that anyone is working against the system isn't really in anyone's best interest at this time.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A group effort is likely to pay off in unexpected ways -- and you're likely to enjoy gains that you had not originally anticipated. (April 5-April 19) -- It's a good week to put those old cares behind you; something good is fast approaching, and will be yours very soon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can capture the attention of someone who has been in your sights for quite a while. Now, the game really begins! (May 6-May 20) -- Focus on those who are willing to put in that extra effort for you; those who are not will only stand in your way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll get the lay of the land rather quickly this week, and be able to pull ahead of the competition without doing anything unusual. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll have the chance to do a little something extra for a friend -- but you mustn't expect anything in return.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Despite repeated attempts to get updated information, you may find that others are not all that willing to give you what you need. (July 8-July 22) -- You are prone to giving someone what he or she doesn't really need -- and this week, certain issues may arise as a result.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Now is not the time to delve into another's personal affairs -- but you need one or two details in order to do the right thing. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll find that those who gravitate toward you at this time are the very ones whose participation you most need -- and will welcome.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- When the time comes for you to step up to the plate, you'll want to put your own unique strategy into play. Timing is the key to success. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may have to rely on someone who is not completely in the loop for the most current information this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're not likely to get the cooperation you need from someone in charge, so you must heed your own instincts at all times. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The response you receive to your "surprise" efforts may be mixed -- but you know you're on the right track.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Give someone else the reins and you'll be able to observe just where things go wrong when you're not in charge. It's a good lesson! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A promise comes to you in an unusual form, but you can rely on it nonetheless. Stick to what you know.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You and a friend may not agree on the best way to get something done -- but one of you must prevail if you are to get a strong start. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Now is no time to be stubborn, especially when it comes to who is at fault in a given situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You will want to be sure that those in your care are given the best of everything that is needed; don't compromise on quality. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Family members may be concerned about the frequency of your mood swings at this time. You can put them at ease.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You are usually looking forward to a particular endeavor at this time each year -- but this year the circumstances have changed. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You are relying on someone else to step forward and deliver what you need; instead, try taking a more active role yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your hopes are well placed, but there is little you can do yourself to ensure that your team comes out on top. (March 6-March 20) -- Your direct influence on another will be noticed -- and appreciated -- at all the right times this week.
