The coming week is likely to see at least some individuals preparing for that which is not at all to transpire as expected -- and the surprises that ultimately befall these individuals will themselves be dramatic, though not long in duration. Those who guess correctly this week, who anticipate what is coming with a high degree of accuracy, can certainly enjoy a great deal of progress -- and a quickening of the pace at home, at work, and in all venues. Some change is likely this week, but nothing that might count as a "game changer" is likely to transpire -- at least not yet. This is a good week for certain individuals to strive for more, to broaden their horizons and expand their awareness of the world around them.
While it will surely be necessary to follow the rules and regulations that have previously been set down, there may be situations that allow a certain degree of flexibility -- particularly in situations that have in the past been recognized as being shaky or uncertain.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be feeling unusually skeptical about what you are doing this week -- but this is not the way to improve your situation. (April 5-April 19) -- You may be reading too much into a message received through the grapevine this week. Don't assume it has a negative connotation!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to impose on a friend this week in order to break free of the kind of static situation that has been all too frequent. (May 6-May 20) -- Keep yourself and your motives well-protected this week; there are those who might do you ill if they have the chance.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Certain substitutions can work wonders for you and others this week. You don't have to be so set in your ways that you can't experiment. (June 7-June 20) -- You may receive a gift of sorts from someone who has been watching you for quite some time.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may not have access to all the tools you feel you need this week, but you can gather other resources and make them work for you. (July 8-July 22) -- You're likely to find yourself in lockstep with someone you have disagreed with adamantly in the past.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may feel threatened during the first part of the week by the development of a situation you cannot control -- at first. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may feel you have the solution to a nagging problem; this week, it's a matter of selling your idea to others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may become interested in something that you have considered strange in the recent past. Your motives are changing, too. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may not understand what another is up to, but this week you may be required to work closely with him or her.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may find yourself caught between a rock and a hard place today as you try to please more than one person who is making heavy demands on you. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may risk losing something that you have worked hard to attain if you don't change course when you have the opportunity.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can improve yourself in one or two very dramatic ways this week, and a close friend is likely to be involved in these efforts. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be exempt from certain rules and regulations this week -- but not permanently. You must act fast!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You mustn't spend too much time adjusting the project you are currently working on; just keep on doing what you know how to do. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're interested in getting in touch with someone you know shares that same interest; there's no reason not to!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Avoid any potentially self-destructive behavior this week, or you may find that even expected hazards are worse than ever before. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't waste your time trying to get even with someone this week; rather, focus on doing something much more positive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may only be able to measure your progress this week in very small increments -- but even those are worth something and can add up! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to put something off again this week -- but now is the time to get it done, and you know it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may be thinking too much about what a rival is capable of doing, rather than focusing your energies on improving your own performance. (March 6-March 20) -- You can glean great meaning from even the shortest, most cryptic messages today. Keep your eyes open.
