The coming week is likely to see many individuals searching for new and untried methods that they can apply to seemingly routine endeavors, hoping to reap the maximum possible benefits in a timely fashion. Those who are satisfied with the same old strategies are not likely to enjoy what is in store; only the brave, the fearless, the adventurous and the strong-willed can put themselves in the best possible position this week, whether in private affairs or professional matters. All are likely to spot opportunities where there may have been none in the past, but only a few can ultimately make the most of them.
Competition will be a big part of the week’s activities. Anyone who is unwilling to allow him- or herself to be judged objectively will end up watching from the sidelines, fated to endure frustration with the dramatically reduced possibility of gain at this time.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can save a great deal of money this week, or you can pass up this chance in favor of something that won’t really pay off. Choose wisely. (May 6-May 20) -- You may feel as though you are running out of options, but this week you actually have more choices than usual.
