The coming week is likely to offer numerous opportunities for redemption, and each individual will know, almost immediately, what will be required to cash in and reverse what might have been a serious deficit in recent days, weeks or months. For those who are willing to gamble on a long shot, it may be time to go all in and put everything into a single effort, plan or idea. Dramatic signals can deliver messages this week on all fronts, and such communication will prove essential -- especially for those who choose to do the most difficult things. Bravery is sure to be rewarded.
Those who are used to making the plans and letting others implement them are likely to be surprised as circumstances demand that they take the ball and run with it themselves. The converse is also true: Those who are used to being in the spotlight may be required to play supporting roles.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You can afford to be more sensitive to the underlying causes of volatile situations at home. You, too, are a major contributor. (April 5-April 19) -- You don't want to put your plans into motion until you know what the opposition may do in response.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll want a little help when it comes to taking advantage of technical resources. Your strengths lie elsewhere. (May 6-May 20) -- You don't want to let your fiery emotions get the better of you and lessen your chances for success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can perform at a very high level, but not everything can be done by you alone. Communicate your intentions efficiently. (June 7-June 20) -- Chipping away slowly at your intended objective will give you greater confidence as the week progresses.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll uncover more possibilities than you had originally foreseen, and your rewards should multiply accordingly. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll want to leave behind something that will be remembered long after your efforts have come to an end -- and you can, surely.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're likely to realize that you haven't been judging time with as much accuracy as possible, and you may be out of sync as a result. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll start the week in a strong position; you can call the shots with strength and confidence.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You don't want anyone to see you perform under par; when you're out in the open, you must up your game significantly. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can come from behind and do more than your part to ensure that your team comes out on top.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have many tricks up your sleeve, but when others are expecting something fancy, you had best make a straightforward effort. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can make your way into the clear, but the outcome depends in large part on clarity of thought.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may not have the chance to show off your primary skills, but you'll find a way to have a major influence over events nonetheless. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself in over your head as the week opens, but with the right players around you, there should be more than one way out of this tight spot.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll start the week playing by the rules, but later on some creative improvisation allows you greater freedom of expression. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Your participation in a clandestine affair brings you very close to those who may not wish you well. Get out when you can.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- After some predictable back-and-forth between you and an opponent, you can change the tone of things with a surprise move. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself in a situation that requires you to do more than usual on your own.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to wait longer than expected before you can have your way -- and even then, you'll have to tread lightly. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You can up the ante and see if anyone else will follow your lead. This can be a week for you to shine.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to step in for another who is not yet ready to mount a strong campaign. Not all the credit will be yours. (March 6-March 20) -- You can take advantage of unexpected bargains, and family members may benefit in unusual ways.
