The coming week is likely to offer up one or more key surprises, but only to those who think they know with certainty what lies ahead. It's a lesson of sorts to the overconfident and cocky: There is only so much one can know, and the more one thinks he knows, the more he has to learn! Indeed, what transpires this week is likely to take on surprising significance, even for those on the periphery. It's a good time to make a wager of sorts, especially in a case of "winner take all" -- though it must be remembered, and carefully considered, that someone in that case will most certainly be the loser!
All must pay keen attention to unspoken signs and signals this week. There is something in the air at this time that may have many individuals on edge, and this is a sign that important shifts are on the way. This is where overconfidence can prove most dangerous!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- What occurs naturally this week is far more significant than anything you may force into place. Focus on smooth transitions. (April 5-April 19) -- Are you ready to do for another what was recently done for you? It's certainly time to return the favor.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be tempted to withdraw from your most important projects at this time simply because you feel overwhelmed. Don't be hasty! (May 6-May 20) -- A friend or loved one comes to you with an offer you simply cannot resist -- but it will require a major change.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may want to consider changing your surroundings in order to maximize your own creativity. You'll be surprised where you get your ideas. (June 7-June 20) -- Someone will give you the nod this week, allowing you to do something you've waited a long time to do.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may have trouble convincing another that you are in the right this week, so you may have to wait until circumstances prove it for you. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're likely to hear from someone who has been keeping an eye on you of late -- and he or she has a bone to pick!
