YOUR STARS by Stella Wilder
The coming week is likely to present conflicting situations that, when combined, will appear to many as challenges, obstacles or setbacks that are difficult -- if not impossible -- to overcome. Such is not the case, of course, though it is difficult to convince someone otherwise who has decided that the deck is stacked against him! What is required this week, of those who are determined to rise above complication and difficulty, is the mere will to do so, combined with the proper and timely application of skill. The more unique to the person and to the situation that skill is, the better!
This week, some may feel as though they have been left out in some way, that others close to them are having all the fun and enjoying all the rare opportunities -- but all must remember that those "others" are likely feeling exactly the same way! It's all a matter of perspective; no one is either all "up" or all "down."
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Quality is what counts at this time, and you may have to wage battle with those who are far more interested in quantity. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll receive a welcome reminder that you are not as far from those who really matter as you might have thought.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be scouting the terrain for previously unrecognized obstacles -- but only by forging ahead can you really know what's out there. (May 6-May 20) -- Now is no time to think of yourself as an outsider; you are as much a part of things as anyone!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may feel as though you have more to prove this week than most others -- and indeed, you may have some ground to make up at this time. (June 7-June 20) -- You can give someone some much-needed comfort this week, and enable him or her to rise above a nasty situation.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The information you seek is at your fingertips -- all you have to do is trust in the tools you have to work with at this time. (July 8-July 22) -- You may not be entirely in sync with those who are striving to accomplish something rare -- but direct conflict should be minimal.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're likely to be recognized for your work this week, but not in the way you had imagined. Other surprises come your way as well. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may feel as though you are sitting squarely behind the eight-ball, but in fact you do have wiggle room.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can put a clever spin on things this week without calling too much attention to yourself. When in doubt, focus on the end result. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Someone in charge may object to the way you do things, but they certainly cannot object to the results!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may require the assistance of someone who is not used to helping out -- but the right words can surely be persuasive. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may not think that you're in the right place at the right time, but what happens may prove that you are.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Your usually vivid imagination may fail you this week, making it difficult to see where you are actually heading. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll realize a thing or two about a close friend that affects how you launch a new and exciting project.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be facing a situation that requires you to spend much more money than you had anticipated. It's time to put a budget on paper. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can score more than one important "first" this week, and others are sure to take notice.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You're likely to uncover an important lead today that allows you to make headway at an increased pace. Don't get carried away, however! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Though you are nominally in charge today, you'll want to give those doing the work a good deal of freedom.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be operating under a mistaken notion this week that keeps you from fulfilling your true potential. It's time to shake off any bad feelings! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- It's a good week for reaffirming your commitment to a project or cause. Soon you'll be able to make real headway.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Working things out to your advantage this week is likely to take some juggling -- of time and resources. Don't let the blues sink in! (March 6-March 20) -- The sooner you start chipping away at the week's responsibilities, the better. Don't waste time!
