The coming week is likely to require more in the way of calculated risk than most have been used to taking in the recent past. There is much to be gained, of course, by those who are willing to put it on the line -- but the dangers may be considerable, and, for some, they are not worth facing. For others, however -- especially those for whom risk itself is proof of life -- there is nothing so dangerous that the promise of reward cannot outweigh the risk, and this week that reward can be considerable. Some have money in their sights, or recognition, or simply the satisfaction of knowing that personal growth continues apace in this busy time.
The realignment of goals with what is possible will prove quite important this week. A big part of getting one's ducks in a row will be open and honest communication with others. The formation of a team that works and plays well together -- or the reformation of such a team -- is an important goal.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're going to have to dedicate yourself to certain difficult tasks in order to prove your suitability for a long-term project. (April 5-April 19) -- You may feel that your presence at a certain function is not necessary, but others will surely benefit from your attendance.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may feel as though there is no end in sight, and indeed there is much to be done, but you should be able to get through it! (May 6-May 20) -- You are backed into a corner by someone who doesn't realize how you will react. Certain danger results.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You will want to approach all projects with elevated care. Much that you have done in the past is good, but it can be better. (June 7-June 20) -- It's a good week to revisit goals you have made with others. Teamwork will prove essential to progress.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Plans you have made may need to change somewhat as you work to implement them. Be ready to improvise; flexibility will be paramount. (July 8-July 22) -- You may not have quite enough information to complete an important job. Ask for it directly, but be patient.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can learn more this week about how to maximize your own gains than at any time in recent months. Your personal power is on the rise. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may be eager to pursue a deeper relationship with someone who responds well to what you are about.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Contact from someone who was an important part of your life some time ago has you thinking that some things can be recaptured. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Nostalgia plays a role. Don't let yourself get lost in what might have been, however.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're able to create something on your own that others will covet, and there's no reason you can't share it. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The fruits of your labors prove beneficial to others as well as to yourself. Your generosity is recognized.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're seeking to diversify somewhat, and one or two available options have you planning certain changes inside and out. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The short term and the long term combine as you think about what is really necessary to you at home and in the workplace.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You and a friend may think you're only playing a game, but you have a hunch that something serious is in the making. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The formulation of a strategy will prove important as you think about what you should and should not be doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may not realize that you're on a one way trip of sorts. You should, however, be able to undo a few things that you do, if necessary. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- An encounter with someone early in the week may cramp your style for a time, but you're able to recover and soar to new heights. Surprise yourself!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- It's up to you to solve a particularly difficult puzzle, and the clues that another offers you may not be very helpful -- yet. (Feb. 3-Feb. 18) -- You may find your own enthusiasm building as you immerse yourself once more in a familiar activity.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your behavior may shock some, but you and others know that you are following the only path that can lead to success. (March 6-March 20) -- You may have trouble deciding between two options that seem equally viable. Are they?
