The coming week will see a great many individuals facing trials that are expected, but at the same time extraordinary, demanding only the best out of each participant while at the same time imparting valuable lessons to those who are only observers. Significantly, events will carry some highly charged emotional content. Those who can control their emotions can come out on top, while those who let their emotions run away with them are likely to lose control and, in the end, lose sight of their own cherished goals. Much will be important this week, and some of it will be more important than ever.
Personal style will not go unnoticed. Planners must think not only of what must be done, but how it must be done as well. In the final analysis, it will be a combination of the what and the how that tells the tale. Anyone who can combine style and substance effectively will come out a winner.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You can take part in something that requires exemplary solo effort while you also work as part of a well-oiled team. (April 5-April 19) -- You can seek much more than you have right now, and a great deal may be found.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You know just what to say when things get tough, but you may require a little more support than usual when your own affairs get bogged down. (May 6-May 20) -- A job well done is likely to be a job long remembered. You may actually hold the future in your hands.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be inspired to do something unusual. More important, you'll be inspired to teach another how to do it as well. (June 7-June 20) -- You can turn something routine into something worth remembering for reasons not yet anticipated.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll encounter many who disagree with your methods or motives, but even your most vocal critics will appreciate your commitment. (July 8-July 22) -- Something big is likely to start, and now is no time to "phone it in." You can show others the way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You want to be considered the best, and you'll have a chance to show those in charge that you have what it takes to be a contender. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's a good week for giving more credence to a rather hazy notion. By week's end, it is likely to be crystal-clear.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You've learned a great many lessons of late, and you'll soon have the opportunity to put those lessons into practice. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can contribute mightily to someone else's efforts and count yourself a winner just for taking part.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're going to want a certain friend or loved one to join you in an effort that begins in a clandestine way, but becomes known very soon. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Things are likely to take on a much greater proportion than expected, and you'll be playing a leading role.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- As the week progresses, you'll have difficulty concealing your emotions -- especially when it's your turn to act. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Fast, faster, fastest -- that's what most people will be thinking about. For you, a slower approach is advised.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Your business may be interrupted for a time when a long-lost someone makes an appearance that is very much unexpected. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're in charge, but you know that there's not much you can do on your own; be sure to inspire your team all week long.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You like to have things your way, certainly, but you may have to give another his or her "first choice" more often than not. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- "Average" will play no part in the week ahead, in any sense. You must be ready for something that really counts.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Don't be fooled by a slow, leisurely start to the week; later on, things are sure to heat up, and you'll have to work to keep up. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- What you think is a mistake early in the week turns out to give you the advantage later on when you really need it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Though you may be recognized for something remarkable early in the week, things only get more exciting later on. (March 6-March 20) -- You're going to want to protect yourself and those near and dear to you throughout the week; you'll see threats coming.
