The coming week is likely to require more of almost everyone in the way of adaptability, flexibility and tolerance, as events transpire which could otherwise create a great deal of friction between parties -- at work, at play, at home and on the road. It matters little whether friends or enemies, strangers or acquaintances, family members or loved ones are interacting; at this time, the likelihood that something will be said or done that could possibly offend in some way is quite high. Those who are willing to turn the other cheek, shrug it off or simply give the other guy a break will be doing much to prevent lasting tensions that could, ultimately, cause much harm in relationships both personal and professional.
Some will be tempted to delve into the nitty-gritty in a manner far more up-close and personal than usual, and they are likely to discover things that were best left undiscovered, at least for now! This week, certain revelations may prove off-putting or even shocking.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You can balance the head and the heart with a bit more success than usual. A loved one marvels at your easygoing approach! (April 5-April 19) -- No one can tell exactly what you are going to accomplish, but you have a pretty good idea!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You and a friend may look at the same situation from very different perspectives, but this can lead to progress if you avoid an argument. (May 6-May 20) -- When two people agree, one is unnecessary -- so don't be too quick to abandon your own dissenting opinion.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- It's a good week to experiment with some alternative plans and strategies. Nothing you do right now has to last forever. (June 7-June 20) -- You may be tempted to reveal more about yourself than is wise. A loved one ups the ante.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may feel as though you are not included, but it is up to you to become more fully engaged in what is going on around you. (July 8-July 22) -- You needn't feel shy or insecure around those who consider you a member of the family -- personally or professionally.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You have a great deal to do, but you will want to add to your list something that will take others by surprise -- in a good way. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's time for you to review your responsibilities and assure others that you are on the case.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can determine the pace, but you will have to ensure that those working with you can and do keep up. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You thought a certain job would be easy, but you were very much mistaken! It's time to buckle down.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be expecting things to go in a whole new direction, but you must respect those who are not yet ready for that. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your impulses and another's may not be in sync this week, which may make certain negotiations rather difficult.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Are you really ready for what is on its way? You've received some hints and warnings, but the reality may surprise you. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Things may take longer to develop -- and to resolve -- than you had anticipated.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may find yourself traveling longer distances than usual, and some may consider your efforts a bit excessive right now. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may be surprised by how someone else receives one of your unusual ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Your relationship with someone in a position of authority may develop more quickly than you had planned, but you can surely adjust. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- He or she who had recently been standing in your way may soon yield to you completely.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You can use the process of elimination to your advantage all week long, especially when you are faced with a difficult choice. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be escorted down memory lane by someone who has something more in store later.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Opportunities you uncover could offer you more in the way of personal reward than any potential professional gain. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll be called upon to make a sacrifice of sorts, but you've been ready to do this all along.
