The coming week is likely to develop as something of a mystery to many individuals, especially those who were confident that they knew what was coming, why it was coming, and what to do about it. This week, however, events and developments are likely to defy understanding and challenge even the most confident -- who, incidentally, aren't likely to be standing in the same place as they were when the week started. Shifts and changes will come fast and furiously when they finally do come, and those who are more attuned to certain subtleties are likely to anticipate with remarkable accuracy the week's events. All will realize that there may be more at stake than meets the eye.
Those who are used to working alone may choose, for any number of good reasons, to engage a partner. The resulting efforts could lead to rewards that would have been unimaginable only a week ago. Indeed, doing things in a new way -- whatever that may be -- can yield a great many unexpected rewards.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may encounter someone who has not figured prominently in your affairs for quite some time. A rush of feelings has you off balance. (April 5-April 19) -- Routine may be upset by the intrusion of someone who is pursuing alternate goals -- on your time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- There are several lessons for you to learn, but the first is to step up when you have the chance. Don't stay in the back seat. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll be called upon to contribute all you can to a situation that is developing faster than expected.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You don't want to wait too long before finding out how to do certain things by the book. Improvisation at this time may not be rewarded. (June 7-June 20) -- Progress may be thwarted for a time, but not for the reasons you suppose. Look deeper.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Quality time spent with a loved one affords you a chance to get to the bottom of a misunderstanding that has held you back for a while. (July 8-July 22) -- You've been too easily letting go of things that are really quite important to you; reverse this trend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may not be able to devote all the time you had hoped to a project that is coming due very soon. You must therefore work more efficiently! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Now is the time for you to put things in the proper order -- internally and externally. Avoid random processes.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You don't want to hesitate as the week opens, when the pace -- and your progress -- will depend upon your first few steps. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- What is good enough for a friend is good enough for you -- at least for now. Later you'll want something more.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not understand what someone is thinking when he or she speaks of things that are deeply personal -- until you focus on commonalities. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though you are reaching the end of a phase. Indeed, something new is about to begin.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may experience a setback that has you reconsidering much that you have been doing recently. This phase needn't last long. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The criticism you receive says more about your critics than it does about you; don't take it to heart.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Though practice usually makes perfect, for some reason it may not lead to much progress at all this week. It's worth keeping up, however. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- What happens now is worthy of scrutiny. Almost everything will mean more than it seems.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Whether you are far from home or in the comfort of familiar surroundings, you can do much to win over those with whom you spend time. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You're likely to find yourself spinning out of control if you fail to ground yourself with a firm plan.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You aren't likely to see all the dangers that lie ahead, but a friend will help you avoid them when you get too close. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- If your reputation takes a beating, you can rebuild it quickly by doing what comes naturally.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The memory of a broken promise has faded, and you should be able to restore a friendship completely. (March 6-March 20) -- What appears to you as if out of the blue is really something that has been developing for some time.
