The coming week will see many individuals succumbing to a feeling of being overbooked, overtaxed, overwhelmed or overworked. Indeed, in recent weeks, a great deal has been required, and there has been no let-up at all for some. This is a good week, then, to throttle back a bit -- but not for everyone! There are a few for whom there is likely to be no respite at all from the kinds of responsibilities, tasks, endeavors and projects that have been most demanding in recent weeks or even months. For the most part, however, only the most willing or able to weather another straight week of hard work will have to experience it -- for the rest, it may not be required.
Everyone should pay close attention to what their bodies and minds are telling them as the week progresses; even the most minute signals could be warnings of something big in the making -- be it an illness, an emotional trauma, a psychological hardship or the like. That which springs from within certainly warrants attention.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It's the little things that really count, particularly when it comes to changes to something you've been working on for a long time. (April 5-April 19) -- Remember, positive feedback can be just as valuable as criticism; you don't have to be critical to be useful!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may not be on the same page as someone who is trying to guide you through a difficult endeavor, but it's your job to stay the course. (May 6-May 20) -- You can explore more freely the kinds of things that interest you. You may stumble upon a potentially lucrative opportunity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may not feel qualified to take on the kinds of projects that appeal to your current tastes and desires, but this week proves you wrong. (June 7-June 20) -- What appears to be something of a calamity is actually a blessing in disguise. Enjoy what comes, and be ready to take things further.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're going to have to pay up at some point, but what you must pay for is something you will have to figure out, and it may take time. (July 8-July 22) -- Your position within social circles may be advanced, but not because of anything you do yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may have to give yourself a stern talking-to at some point in order to get back on track and do what must be done. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Someone who has only recently departed for a distant shore is likely to be on your mind throughout much of the week.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You and a friend may find yourselves working on opposite sides of an important issue, but in the end, you'll come together. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You must be willing to explore the dark side a bit more deeply than usual in order to enjoy the light later on.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- The work you have done is very high quality, but you may want to make a few revisions for personal reasons. "Good enough" isn't good enough! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll be able to see a friend through a difficult time as emotions run high and tempers flare.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may not be able to get out and about as much as you had hoped, but what you are able to accomplish matters to many. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Talk openly about your tastes and preferences, and you'll see you have much in common with one on the other side of the fence.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're more in the mood to observe than to take part, but you'll likely be required to do both in their turn. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- It's a good week to get more acquainted with your own evolving likes and dislikes. Someone close to you has a plan.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may want the advice of someone who is much closer to a certain situation than you are -- but extracting it from him or her may take some effort. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What comes of a certain chance encounter will depend in large part upon your willingness to take the bull by the horns.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to scour your own records in order to provide another with the information he or she needs at this tricky time. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Others may be impressed with what you have created, but you're not so sure it's the best you can do.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Others are likely to gravitate toward you simply because you are more willing than most to put it on the line. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be torn between a desire to repeat a past glory and the need to move forward and continue your personal evolution.
