The coming week is likely to fool some into thinking that the hardest work, the fastest pace and the longest hours are behind them, but the truth is that things are just now starting to roll along at peak demand, requiring of everyone a bit more than anticipated. It's likely to be a busy week, and many will have their hands full with more than one project. Not a single endeavor will be the kind that can be put off, held back, stopped or canceled for any reason. Those who find themselves most busy this week will of course have one major consolation: The more they do, the more they are likely to be rewarded! But the catch here is that those rewards aren't likely to come right away.
It's not whom you know this week, but rather who knows you! This is a fine distinction, but those who understand it are sure to have the advantage. Those who appreciate the need for the right kind of exposure -- whether or not circumstances are ideal -- can set themselves up for a big win.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may not be feeling as grounded and stable as usual, but much of that has to do with a coming shift in priorities. (April 5-April 19) -- What began as a temporary fix is likely to turn into something permanent before the week is out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may discover early in the week that you have more time than expected. With it, you can achieve something rare and admirable. (May 6-May 20) -- It's a good week to throw yourself into a new line of endeavor with considerable abandon. Risks are few, rewards great!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll want to follow the rules, surely, but some you will be able to bend a bit to suit your own particular circumstances. (June 7-June 20) -- You're after something that others have been pursuing for some time, so what is it that makes you so confident?
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can check most things off your "to-do" list rather quickly this week, but one task in particular may gum up the works for a while. (July 8-July 22) -- You appreciate someone else's efforts even though you don't agree with his or her motives or methods.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- It may soon be time for you to tell someone else exactly what you think of his or her behavior, but for now you must remain tolerant. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Don't make the mistake of thinking you can buy favor; only a job well done will win the praise of a superior.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Variety is the key, no matter what you may be doing. Do not underestimate the importance of eating right. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- It's a good week to expose yourself to something new and different. An open mind is your most valuable tool.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Now is the time for you to connect with those who are after the same basic things as you are, even though their methods are different. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You have a chance to experience something this week that very few ever get to experience. Don't let this opportunity slip by!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The quicker you start, the more likely you will be to get things done on or ahead of schedule -- and, very likely, under budget. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You have several people waiting for you to finish your part of a project; don't make them wait any longer.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You mustn't consider yourself finished with a project until you have gone back to check that all is progressing apace. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Just because you've shown someone else what to do and how to do it doesn't mean you can wash your hands of that particular situation.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may not be able to rely on your usual tools to help you through this week; as a result, instinct will prove more important. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You have a knack for getting along with those who rub others the wrong way, but that doesn't mean these are warm relationships!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Your ability to see through someone else's attempts at deception will serve you well -- and on a big stage, too! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Not everyone is able to understand the week's developments as keenly as you are, so be sure to explain clearly to others!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Tackling your responsibilities one step at a time is the right way to ensure that everything is done up to par. (March 6-March 20) -- You may not be able to do everything as you had promised, but most projects come off without a hitch.
