The coming week, many who are used to being front-and-center will assume supporting roles, while those who are used to being content in the background step up and take a more prominent position. Some may take this the wrong way, feeling as though they are being taken advantage of or somehow forced into doing things they feel unsuited or unprepared for, but such is not the case. This week, the needs of the many surely outweigh the needs of the few -- or the one. Everyone must get used to the notion that personal sacrifices, or at least adjustments in attitudes and expectations, can work wonders for all.
Those who choose to be helpful to those who suddenly and unexpectedly find themselves in positions of authority may discover that there is, indeed, much to learn from people who are new on the scene. Surely, such "new blood" can prove beneficial to all manner of projects, both personally and professionally.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your progress may be thwarted for a short time by circumstances that are, in part, a result of your own mixed feelings. (April 5-April 19) -- Despite your best efforts, some of the things you do are likely to be considered noble failures.
