The coming week is likely to present a great many opportunities to remember fondly days, weeks and years gone by, and events that were significant in ways that are perhaps difficult to define. The sense for many may be that something has been missed -- or that something is sorely missed now -- but that is not a necessary reaction to the nostalgia that is such a part of the week. Indeed, some will legitimately be looking back at a time that was better than this time in ways, but most can realize, with proper perspective, that what has gone before has been merely prologue -- a setup, as it were, for a rich and positive present.
Those who only want to live the good life may be disappointed as certain events make it impossible to fully enjoy luxury even if it is available. Those who understand that fortune is an unsteady, even fickle, companion are certain to enjoy what comes in a way that is much richer.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Fantasy and reality are likely to be combined in a surprising way, and you're going to have to come clean very soon. (April 5-April 19) -- You are seeing things through a rather dark lens; much that you observe is sunnier than you perceive.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're keenly interested in bringing back something from the past, but you mustn't let yourself become obsessed with the way things were. (May 6-May 20) -- In two or three quick steps you can accomplish something that will bring you notoriety -- and some profit, too.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You have been borrowing from others quite liberally, and this week it will be time for you to give back. Don't be stingy! (June 7-June 20) -- As one thing leads to another, you may find yourself sitting out in the cold for reasons you don't completely understand.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The way you provide information to others will prove quite significant, though not everyone will be receptive. (July 8-July 22) -- Everything you're after is available to you, at least in theory. Hard work is surely required, however.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're ready to say "yes" to someone who has been waiting patiently for you to see things his or her way. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A little naughty behavior can actually get you closer to a personal goal than you have been in quite a while.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can take something rather old-fashioned and give it a new twist. The resulting commotion shines a light on you. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can build a bridge from the past to the future, but you may have to cross it alone when the time comes.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A co-worker is likely to inspire you in unexpected ways, and rising excitement can result in a surprise ending. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You've been working hard to let another know what you want and need. This week, the message is likely to hit home.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're intrigued by something that someone else has been doing, and it may be time for you to give it a try. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're ready to give another a steady dose of the real you, though bystanders may not wholly understand your motives.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- What you do this week will owe a great deal to a past success, though there is much that is original in your current efforts. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can really shake it up and keep those around you on their toes. One surprise in particular really pays off.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You have a choice to make today that will affect your primary relationship in ways that are far-reaching and perhaps quite surprising, too. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Why are you being so resistant to another's attempts to get to know you better? Open up a bit.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- What has been lost for quite some time is likely to turn up quite unexpectedly and send you off in a different direction. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're thinking about things that are far, far in the future. The here and now demand more attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- What seems trivial is likely to be quite important by week's end; indeed, what you are doing may be considered game-changing. (March 6-March 20) -- Your tastes differ dramatically from those of a friend you are trying perhaps too hard to impress this week.
