The coming week is likely to see some changes take place in the lives of those who think that everything is as it should be -- and the lesson, of course, is that life itself is a work in progress, and no one should make the mistake of thinking that things are static, unchangeable or permanent. Indeed, this week, it may seem as if the stars are intentionally throwing surprises at those who most need them -- but why might that be? It is quite probable, of course, that there are those whose eyes must be opened to opportunities that they have yet seen, recognized, or acknowledged, and only sudden and unexpected change is likely to do the trick!
Many this week will welcome what comes; some will fight tooth and nail to prevent any change from setting in -- and those are the individuals who are sure to have a hard time of it, now and in the foreseeable future. Things that are truly worth hanging on to are not likely to be gone once the week has revealed its surprises -- so what's the worry?
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're going to want to address certain stubborn issues head-on this week, unlike any diversionary attempts in the past. (April 5-April 19) -- What happens to you this week as a result of any ill-conceived plans will certainly be lasting and instructive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Someone close to you may not be in the mood to follow in your footsteps this week, but he or she will stay close to you in other ways. (May 6-May 20) -- You don't want to have to repeat yourself this week; make your instructions clear and concise the first time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- A look back affords you greater wisdom about the time to come, but don't think that you can answer all questions ahead of time. (June 7-June 20) -- You're using all reasonable caution at this time, but still there are certain dangers you cannot wholly avoid.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll have a major obstacle to overcome as the week progresses, and it's not likely to go away simply because you think good thoughts. (July 8-July 22) -- You must take a more realistic stance toward the situation you now find yourself in. Don't try to fool yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Something you've been doing for quite some time now is finally feeling natural to you. You can enjoy yourself a little more. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have to spend a night or two away from home this week. Make travel plans ahead of time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Waiting until the last minute to put your plans into motion this week will only serve to set you back and prevent your eventual victory. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may have to explore certain issues on your own this week in order to come up with the answers you seek.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be moving toward something that is better avoided -- but you're not sure how to avoid it. An elder gives you some sage advice. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You won't be able to use any of your usual excuses this week; you'll have to face the truth head-on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may feel as though your team is falling apart, but what is mostly missing is a strong sense of leadership -- and that's up to you. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may have trouble saying "no" to someone in your care -- but saying "yes" can uncover a world of trouble.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may begin the week without a strong sense of purpose, but after a few days you'll feel as though you know what you're doing and why. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The quality of your work is not in question this week -- but your timing may be cause for concern.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- There's no point in saying "I told you so" when, in fact, everyone understands exactly where you stand already. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- This week you are likely to come face to face with someone or something that challenges you in a significant way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may not be able to continue with the way things are -- but changing them this week may prove a daunting task. Begin at the beginning. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You can learn a thing or two this week from someone who doesn't know the significance of what he or she is saying or doing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're going to have to take charge of a difficult situation this week when he or she who held that position decides to go elsewhere. (March 6-March 20) -- With a few adjustments you can increase your productivity considerably this week. Focus on doing something others have not done.
