The coming week is likely to see a great many individuals coping with a kind of loneliness that is both rare and stubborn -- a kind born of the sense that one is out of his or her element, surrounded by those who do not understand, yearning for something that is elusive and out of reach. None of this is to be feared, however, for all of it can pass quickly -- unless one makes the mistake of dwelling in such feelings, and allowing them to take a firm grip on the psyche or the soul. He or she who believes that such feelings will last a long time is almost sure to make that fear come true. Such a self-fulfilling prophecy is to be avoided at all costs!
Recovery from any emotional hardships this week can be swift, if not permanent, and the magic can return quickly to one's life if one is able to recognize it, welcome it and embrace it -- for indeed, it is all around. This is just the kind of week that highlights life's ups and downs, whites and blacks, yins and yangs.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may develop an odd appetite for that which is not usually considered healthy. Still, you can avoid any serious harm. (May 6-May 20) -- You must be ready for what comes this week, whether or not you feel up for it. Don't be surprised!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The simplest of concepts may be too much for you as the week opens, but you'll get up to speed quickly and take charge in a way that is unexpected. (June 7-June 20) -- That which isn't entirely to your taste may actually be just what you need this week. Say yes!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- What is usually free time must be spent in an earnest attempt to catch up this week. You may not be able to reclaim the time later on. (July 8-July 22) -- That which was lost is found this week. Put your best foot forward. A friend sees you in a new light.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Imitation may be the most sincere form of flattery, but for you, it may actually set you back. You must be working toward something original. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll derive a great deal of good from a certain companion's contributions this week. Show your appreciation.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can reveal much this week merely by the way you look -- and if you don't want to reveal anything, you must alter the way you look. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll receive a call to action this week, and you'll want to be prepared with all your resources at the ready.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can impress those around you this week merely by doing what you do. Any conscious attempt may actually backfire on you. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Take care that your own judgments of someone else's difficult situation don't reflect poorly on you.
