The coming week could give many individuals cause for choosing sides and preparing for conflict, both direct and indirect. It is essential that everyone fully understand the issues at play, and that no one let misinformation, innuendo or outright lies be the motivating factor in their decision-making. It may be difficult for some to pinpoint exactly what the central issues are -- but this is ultimately less important than avoiding anything that is patently untrue. There is a great danger in promoting gossip, rumor and falsehood this week; anyone who gets in a fight of any kind based on untruth is surely in for a hard time of it.
Many will find strength and comfort by embracing their own ideals and principles -- and letting them, in conjunction with instinct, dictate the course they should take. It will be very easy for one person to be controlled by another, so extra effort must be taken by all to avoid such situations.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your research will tell you one story, but your experience may tell you something altogether different. It's time to find out the truth. (April 5-April 19) -- The force of your personality and a bit of courage should give you the advantage all week long.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Environmental influences will be deeply affecting all week long; your own personal preferences may not apply at this time. (May 6-May 20) -- You're feeling strong and energetic, yet you may not be able to settle on a single, productive line of endeavor.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll find yourself wishing for that which was not good enough for you in the recent past. Your tastes and needs are changing. (June 7-June 20) -- Contact with one who is far from home lends a new kind of poignancy to your week. Communication takes on a lasting importance.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The implementation of your plans depends upon another's willingness to take part and get moving. Conflict may result. (July 8-July 22) -- You're waiting for official instructions to be released, but you must be willing to take the initiative.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- While someone else is spending a great deal of time warming up, you can get started and move well ahead of the pack by the weekend. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A difference of opinion is likely to result in a conflict that lasts quite a while if neither party backs down.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Your unique way of expressing yourself will surely make an impression. What is inimitable is most valuable. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself moving around quite a bit throughout the week, searching for clues to a personal mystery.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can get something started that puts the final period on an episode that you and others will remember for some time. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may receive a "second chance," and, as a result, your pockets may be more full than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Daring and luck will combine to push you forward. When you get where you are going, native ability plays a role.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You mustn't let yourself become discouraged. Some mismanagement may cause a setback, but you can devise a solution. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can't expect to get away with everything, but at least one of your schemes is likely to pay off.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The times are changing once again, and you must change your tactics to match. If you do not, the week will prove a serious hardship to you. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may develop a fondness for something that others simply do not have a taste for, but it suits you just fine!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Pay attention to the things that are said -- not to you, but near you. You may catch hints of something important just around the corner. (March 6-March 20) -- You may find yourself embroiled in a situation that seems to swallow you up, but by week's end you can devise a way out.
