The coming week is likely to ask of each individual a renewed commitment to something that has held him or her in good stead in the past -- something that gives a true sense of confidence and standing, something that reflects the true self and allows one to engage in honest interaction with others, something that promotes the common welfare as well as unique and individual desires. What that is may be quite different for each person, but all know what they are after and how best to reach it. This level of commitment is required because the health of the self is paramount at this time, and that begins, of course, with the mind.
Some may consider it a waste of time to focus inward when there is so much to accomplish in the outside world, but this would be inaccurate! Nothing worth doing has ever been done without combining what lies within with what transpires without, and this week the relationship between in and out will be highlighted as never before.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A project left undone is calling to you, and you're full of new ideas that you can apply almost immediately. (April 5-April 19) -- A partner knows just what you need, and is willing and able to give it to you in abundance. Things are looking up!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Slow down, and you'll see things in a way you haven't before. There's no need to keep the pedal to the metal at all times. (May 6-May 20) -- Your desires are narrowing, and you'll get a keen and accurate view of what you most want in the world.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your desires may seem almost childishly simple to others, but upon examination they will find that those desires are the foundation for all you believe in. (June 7-June 20) -- Early mornings may be required of you all week long as you tend to business that others have left undone.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're eager to go home -- figuratively, if not literally. Your heart is leaning in a direction that could bring much comfort. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll be more dependent upon others than usual, but your needs and desires are very specific.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may not know how to navigate the week at first, but if you take it slow, a roadmap of sorts should stretch out before you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's a good week to make wishes. A mystery is solved, and you may find yourself traveling to a favorite destination.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The answer to "why" is, this week, simply "because." There's no reason to launch into more explicit explanations than this. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can add your own unique embellishments to a very simple endeavor -- and be noticed as a result.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can fake it if you have to, but working a little harder to achieve something more genuine can be good for everyone. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're after something that seems elusive, but perhaps it's just something that's not placid or stationary.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You've been taking something for granted that may soon be unavailable to you. You'll realize its importance. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may find yourself chasing down the object of your desire in a more aggressive way -- and the outcome may be mixed.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Survival itself is not the point; you'll want to improve the quality of your experiences across the board. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can take a chance and score a major personal victory. A relationship gets a much-needed boost.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Someone is likely to affect you from far away. Concentrate on endeavors that allow you to express yourself freely. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be playing the waiting game throughout the week, as a loved one explores his or her own private avenues.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The solution to a nagging problem is staring you in the face, but economic realities may prevent you from taking advantage of it. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Someone you work with is likely to surprise you this week as he or she presents a remarkably exciting new idea.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- What worked only days ago may not work nearly as well now, no matter when you try it. Listen to the opinions and advice of others. (March 6-March 20) -- Now is no time to sit back and let others run roughshod over you. Stand up for yourself and your ideals.
