The coming week is likely to require a far more in-depth understanding and appreciation of circumstances both large and small, expected and unexpected, fleeting and permanent -- and all who really want to make progress at this time had better be ready to devote a good deal of time to the proper study of what is going on all around them at this time. This week, assumptions can only serve to confuse and cloud the major issues -- at best! At worst, they can do serious harm, especially to those who are dependent upon others for their care and safety. It's a good time to cozy up to those who are most trusted, as they will play major roles all week long.
Those who are trying to negotiate special treatment of some sort may want to postpone such efforts until the prevailing winds are more conducive to general agreement about such things. Those who are trying to make meaningful changes in their lives may find help in the most unlikely of places.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll come to some important conclusions this week based on a few accidental encounters that leave you quite impressed. (April 5-April 19) -- That which is not said this week may prove far more important than anything clearly and explicitly explained.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You will want to look closely at yourself this week -- particularly at how you behave with certain other individuals, and why. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll have the chance to play the hero this week as another needs precisely what you have to offer.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be getting too wrapped up in things that are not really your concern this week; steer clear of things that can trip you up. (June 7-June 20) -- You may be grappling with issues that have only recently come up; one may prove unusually tricky.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can expect someone to interrupt you in some way midweek, causing you to backtrack and then pick up where you left off. (July 8-July 22) -- Quality control may prove a central issue all week long. You can't afford to settle for that which is sub-standard.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may have to work much harder this week to achieve what was much easier only a week ago. This suggests a change you must navigate. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You are able to go the distance this week, but you may also be disappointed with your showing at the finish line.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- There's no need to sugar-coat that which everyone needs to hear and understand. Tell it like it is. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Before you head off in a new and exciting direction, you'll have to tend to a few tedious and routine chores. Don't be a slacker!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can find a way to make the impossible possible this week -- or at least to make it seem as though you have. Perception counts for much. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though you got the short end of the stick -- but take another look, and rejoice!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You are eager to follow someone else's lead this week, but you may find that you have one or two ideological objections. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- What begins innocently enough as the week opens may prove to be something you should avoid at all costs.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may get so wrapped up in your own preparations this week that you never really get anything started. Don't be slow to act! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You'll have the chance to relive something through the prism of someone else's point of view this week.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Consider adopting behavior that is more conducive to mental and physical health. You may not be treating yourself well! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- It may be difficult to adopt a whole new pattern of behavior, but it is necessary this week -- and you can do it!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Trouble may result from any attempts to get what you want without going through the proper channels this week. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Any attempts to pull the wool over another's eyes this week can only lead to confusion that pulls you under with everyone else.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Something that has been weighing on you for some time is likely to come to the fore this week; others are willing to help you out. (March 6-March 20) -- You may feel as though you have been somehow trapped by circumstances -- but you are solely responsible.
