The coming week is likely to present things in a way that seems, to many, to be completely backwards -- or, more appropriately perhaps, upside-down, as beginnings and endings become switched, black becomes white, in becomes out and everything appears to have been shaken up and emptied out onto a table for everyone to figure out as if for the first time. There are two options, of course: confusion -- which may well be the more common of the two -- or an unexpected feeling that things finally make sense. Those who enjoy the latter sensation are sure to find themselves on top, at least for now. They will be head and shoulders above those who are stuck in former assumptions and perceptions.
On the flip side, there are tasks that will require no more than the usual effort to get done. Everyone can take comfort in the fact that such items will prove the basis upon which to build future successes. That which is begun this week may prove very big before long.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Follow your instincts and you'll be able to make sense out of something that has others confused and even rather afraid. (April 5-April 19) -- You can share what's on your mind with some other people who are willing to help you on your way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be able to sneak off and enjoy a little downtime, but you must be ready to get back to business when called upon. (May 6-May 20) -- You may not fully understand the significance of the role you are asked to play, but you know there will be a payoff.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You are likely to make a few important discoveries every step of the way, and your travels may take you quite far indeed. (June 7-June 20) -- Now is the time for you to let another know exactly how you feel and exactly what you are willing to do about it!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- It may seem as though you are getting only cold responses from those around you, but someone is sure to step up and have your back. (July 8-July 22) -- A gut response early in the week is likely to send you in a surprising direction. Something beckons.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may feel trapped by circumstances, but as the days pass, you'll recapture a keen sense of control. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- What begins as something purely recreational is likely to turn into something that means much more by week's end.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may find yourself engaged in a contest of wills. How it ends will determine much more than your own personal standing. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may not require a great deal of coaching this week; your own experience and expertise do the trick.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may feel as though a great deal more than usual is riding on what you accomplish this week, and this may be proved true very soon. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may want to say goodbye to a certain part of yourself that you feel is no longer relevant.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- What you need at this time is a stepping-stone of sorts, but you aren't likely to find it where you most expect it. Keep looking! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You are missing something that actually provides you with a great deal of strength and confidence, but you'll recapture it soon.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have only one chance this week to get it right. As soon as it reveals itself, you must make your play. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't distract yourself with trying to be the best. Instead, progress is made in small increments.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may not be reaching the heights that you had previously anticipated. It's a good week to rethink what really matters to you. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have to say your goodbyes before you had planned on it, but you're not likely to encounter many other such surprises.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to make an early start each and every day this week, but later on you'll be able to get some much-needed rest. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be operating according to an assumption that is proved to be quite wrong by week's end.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You should be able to help another out of a rut, and in the process you may rekindle an interest that pays off handsomely for you. (March 6-March 20) -- You may behave in ways that send the wrong signals to a loved one, when in fact you're trying to say just what is needed.
