The coming week is likely to present a number of situations that require a good deal of tact, diplomacy and other sorts of people skills. A good deal of introspection may come from the week's events; almost everyone will be compelled to examine him- or herself in ways that have perhaps been actively avoided in the past. Situations that arise will certainly be of such complexity and import that very few, if any, are likely to dodge what comes. It's not so much bravery that is required this week, but an honest appraisal of both self and situation.
Some may not see themselves as playing any sort of memorable role in these events, but they will be mistaken. Indeed, as is so often the case with those who are thrust into unexpected situations, what is required may well be both unusual and memorable. Those who rise to the occasion will surely be remembered for it.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your intentions are good, but it may be more difficult than expected to talk others into buying what you are selling. (April 5-April 19) -- An early error may have you thinking the worst about the week, when in fact you may well perform expertly once you're past that first bump.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Someone is likely to remind you of what is most important to you, and that is likely to change your thinking about many things. (May 6-May 20) -- Whether you change your mind or make up your mind, you must make a decision of some sort before the week is out.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Comments that are meant to be positive may be difficult to take that way, mostly because you are being too sensitive and suspicious. (June 7-June 20) -- Progress can be measured in very clear, but very small, increments. Forward is forward, however!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Your energy is high, and your inspiration comes from all manner of unusual sources. You may have many opportunities to shine. (July 8-July 22) -- You must make all arrangements with great care, especially if they involve travel with friends or loved ones.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're interested in claiming the top spot, but you may not quite know how to get there -- yet. Soon, the path reveals itself. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may get caught up in a fight between two parties who really don't have anything to fight about. Peace is up to you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may not perform quite up to par during the first part of the week, but when you take the time to assess your work, it will surely improve. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your willingness to do more than is asked of you will surely serve you well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have to sit this one out for some reason, but that doesn't mean the week won't provide you with some real excitement. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- A long-distance communication begins as just a transfer of information, but it quickly becomes something more.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You will want to explore something further once you have been introduced to it. Something inside you is coming to life. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be looking back on this time last year wondering how things managed to be so simple then!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- What you expected would provide you with a great deal of satisfaction may, this time, disappoint you somewhat. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can turn a negative development into something of a boon before the week is out. You see things in a unique way!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be trying to get someone to come along with you on a professional journey of sorts, but it's proving an uphill climb so far. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The quality of your work will be high, but you may not fall under your own spell as others do.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Someone may be trying to fool you into saying or doing something that could come back and haunt you later. Resist! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to reconnect with someone who had much to do with your recent or current success. What is the first message you will send?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You know a great deal, but you may not always know how right you are. This week should prove to you that you've got the goods. (March 6-March 20) -- Something big is likely to start in a very small way. Indeed, you may not even suspect what lies ahead.
