The coming week is likely to present situations that require a keen understanding of the meaning of things both said and unsaid. Assumptions are not enough; do not assume that common knowledge will serve. Each individual must do what he or she can to get accurate, up-to-date information in order to come to a full and detailed understanding of the messages that are sent and received throughout the week. Words, words, words -- there will be many of them, and they are all worth something. Depending on one's perspective, they can be revealing -- or obscure.
It's a good week for everyone to accept the fact that there is only so much one person can do, no matter how prepared, skilled and "on top of it" he or she may be. There may be a very real need for assistance, and waiting for it won't be enough. It must be asked for, in the right way, at the right time.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Though you're likely in charge and know what's going to happen, you may well be on the edge of your seat as it all plays out. (April 5-April 19) -- You may have to do a lot of maneuvering in the dark before someone else reveals what you need to know.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're nearing your target, but you may not be able to call it quits after you have done all you have planned. Some new issues need attention. (May 6-May 20) -- You're going to have to have a contingency plan in place before taking a risk that you know could very well backfire on you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your willingness to put yourself out there will give you the advantage -- and require you to do something out of character, too. (June 7-June 20) -- It's important that you be able to blend in, but only until your own plans are put in motion.
CANCER (June 21-July 6) -- You must be willing to incorporate another's assessment in your thinking processes; you can't know everything about everything! (July 7-July 22) -- You and a friend will find yourselves on a journey of sorts -- one that brings plenty of surprises.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be called upon because of your unique skill set -- and your ability to step into a difficult situation with confidence. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You know how to do one or two unusual things that will prove invaluable to many. Be ready.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You don't want to be in the rear of the action; you will serve yourself and others better by stepping up to the front. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your casual attitude may not be appreciated by the powers that be, but it keeps you relaxed and ready for action.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- The odds of getting it right are very good. Don't make any false moves, and be ready to improvise as the need arises. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be waiting for the information needed to make sense of a tricky financial situation. Money is not the only issue.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may feel as though you're being expected to wait for too long before swinging into action, but you can use the time to your advantage. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're not able to keep up with everyone at all times, but when the time is right, you can surely lead the pack for a while.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're in charge of something that is really taking off. See if you can't drum up some more support. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Alternating sights and sounds will prove important to you throughout the week; personal interpretation counts for much.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- It's a good time for you to express yourself in terms that make sense to you. You don't have to worry about being understood; you will be. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You're looking out for others even as you take care of yourself. More is happening of which you're a principal part.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're eager to discover just what the most important issue is, but the answer is different with each person you talk to. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're after something that can prove your legitimacy to others. When all is said and done, you are the real deal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Though you'll want to keep your team together most of the time, certain steps of your journey must be taken individually, out of sight of others. (March 6-March 20) -- You may have to take things apart completely before putting them back together to your satisfaction.
