The coming week is likely to develop in such a way that those with the most positive, progressive attitudes are given the advantage -- and when the time comes, they will be able to name their own rewards in many cases. Indeed, the greatest possible reward for maintaining a positive outlook is the ability to accomplish that which is most desired. For the upbeat, the forward-thinking and the optimistic, hard work this week is almost guaranteed to produce the desired results. Those who do not share such an attitude or outlook are not destined to fail, surely -- but the odds against them may be greater throughout the week.
Some may find that those ideas that had previously been met with skepticism, or even outright laughter, can prove the most productive this week -- though there must always be a steady foundation in order for such ideas to come to fruition in a lasting way.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Those who are most admired may, this week, provide a certain amount of disappointment -- and you'll be in a position to pick up the slack. (April 5-April 19) -- The behavior of a loved one may be unusual this week, prompting you to investigate. Respect boundaries!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Take things one at a time this week and you should be able to avoid that feeling of being in over your head. (May 6-May 20) -- Someone close to you is willing to up the ante, keeping this lively and competitive. You can win this one!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may think that you can't have too much of a good thing -- but this is simply untrue, and the events of this week are sure to prove it. (June 7-June 20) -- You're in a position that will allow you to speak your mind without endangering your reputation in any way.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may not behave entirely according to the rules this week when you hear what has been going on behind your back. (July 8-July 22) -- Those who know you well know just how you can react when you are wronged in a certain way -- and it may happen this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may not agree with the experts or pundits, and before the week is out you are likely to have an audience eager to hear why. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- The dreams you have this week may actually shock you and inspire you in turns. Both reactions are valid.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be in charge of gathering a team to accomplish something that many think is impossible. Your ideas push the envelope. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You'll be learning from a glimpse into your own past this week -- but take care you don't get stuck there!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may react in a way that takes others by surprise this week when you get word of words or actions that go against your own expectations. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Others are waiting for you to provide detailed instructions; do it soon, or they can't do what you've asked.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You have what it takes to reinvent yourself successfully this week, if that's what is required. If it's not required, it's not recommended. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You know what's coming your way this week, and you know that you're going to have to face it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You must be ready to face consequences of your actions that are in no way what you have been expecting; they may, in fact, be better! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are not able to avoid everything negative this week, but you can turn much of it to your advantage.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Are you in a position to share freely what you learn this week? By sharing it, you make the best possible use of it. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A personal situation arises this week that demands more of you than you may feel is possible -- at first.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may wonder how you could possibly be deserving of the kinds of things that come your way this week -- negative and positive. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may have to share what you had hoped would be yours alone this week -- but sharing can yield unexpected rewards.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Disagreements may arise this week from situations that are designed to foster the opposite -- but some partners may be inflexible. (March 6-March 20) -- You're waiting for something to be done before moving on to that irresistible opportunity that beckons.
