The coming week is likely to see a great many people choosing to collaborate on projects that might, at other times, be private, personal and highly solitary, but at this time everyone is likely to have a very good reason for joining forces. Indeed, it can certainly be said that, this week, two heads are better than one -- and often, three, four or five are better than two! It must be remembered, however, that if there are not those chosen few to guide the group, anarchy can result. So even while collaboration is the rule, someone who has distinguished him- or herself in the past should be chosen to oversee the combined efforts of a unified group of dedicated, creative and hardworking individuals.
For those who do assume a position of authority this week, a warning: Not everyone is going to agree with you every step of the way. While this is likely to be known by anyone stepping up, the fact is that dealing with it while it is happening may test both patience and resolve. Hearing others out is the key -- even when one's mind is already made up!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be intrigued by the way another plays his or her part. Do what you can to get close to this person -- but not too close! (April 5-April 19) -- You may have to teach yourself something rather quickly before teaching it to someone else later in the week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You have more to give than you are willing to part with right now, but someone is likely to inspire you and convince you to give your all. (May 6-May 20) -- You may not be willing to do exactly as you are told, but you may be able to reach a productive compromise.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What you thought would be simple may actually prove harder to do with so many people involved; you were expecting to tackle it on your own. (June 7-June 20) -- Zero in on those things that turn your focus inward; you have much to think about of a personal nature.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- There is little room for mistakes this week, but it is unlikely you will get through everything without making one or two. (July 8-July 22) -- What begins as something purely recreational suddenly begins to mean a lot more to you as the week progresses.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Things are looking good for you, and someone may turn to you with a request that allows you to demonstrate your skills more openly. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can assuage someone else's doubts by being quick and assured; you know how to get things done!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Others may not believe everything you tell them, so you'll have to demonstrate that it is, in the main, quite true. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- After a long period of conflict, you may choose to throw in the towel in order to move on to something else.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Appearances can surely be deceiving, but they may be all you have to go on as you make decisions about your immediate future. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You are willing to put yourself in a supporting role in order to work with a clear expert.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- It's a good week for you to work on clearing the air with those who have been in dispute with you over the past few weeks. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Questions of policy will have to be answered. You know where you stand, but others may make you guess.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll be invited to play with the big boys, and you'll find that you feel very much at home in their company. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- It's not often that you are given carte blanche, but this week that may be the case, at least for a time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to rush through a few favorite endeavors in order to tend to a new responsibility that you're not yet used to. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have to break a few of your own personal rules in order to communicate certain ideas clearly and efficiently.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Your collaboration with a member of the opposite sex may promise something more -- at least in your own mind. Read the signs carefully. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to find that someone else's approach, while quite unusual, suits you as well. Can you adopt it?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're attracted to the way someone expresses him- or herself -- but is there something more going on? Assess this carefully throughout the week. (March 6-March 20) -- You may feel as though someone isn't telling you everything you need to know. Investigate!
