The coming week is likely to throw surprises at many individuals. Those whose time is carefully scheduled -- whose work, rest and play are so tightly arranged that there is little room for adjustment or flexibility -- will find themselves most impacted as the surprises that arise will demand attention of some sort. Some events may even bring with them changes that are dramatic and quite possibly permanent. There is no telling when or where one will hit a bump in the road, but it is safe for everyone to assume that they will encounter a few! This week, the busier a person gets, the more likely it will be that events transpire that demand immediate attention and urgent decision-making.
Some may discover that they are facing decisions based on conflicting information -- but neither this nor that is actually untrue or inaccurate, so the decision that must be made will prove even more difficult than anticipated. Ultimately, what each person chooses will simply be the result of personal reflection -- or personal taste.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It's up to you to gather the forces you need to get something done in a way that will take the opposition entirely by surprise. (April 5-April 19) -- Messages come to you from afar that both comfort you and give you food for thought. What's in the offing?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Contact those who are willing to help. Not all will have the time or the expertise required, but someone will surely come through. (May 6-May 20) -- You will not be able to give yourself the time you need for personal reflection until certain key duties have been performed.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What begins this week is likely to end this week as well, but only because it is, by nature, short-lived. Much will progress as it should. (June 7-June 20) -- You're reaching back into the past even as you look forward into the future. A personal struggle is eased.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may wish to be left alone for much of the week in order to deal with a recent disappointment that has you reeling. (July 8-July 22) -- A collaborative effort can prove enjoyable, but you may not be in the mood for any additional fun.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Taking precautions is only a matter of common sense -- and the correct reading of warnings that are all around you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Be sure to take all expert opinions into consideration as you make a decision that could be far-reaching.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have more than one chance to experiment with something unusual before deciding whether it is truly for you. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You are getting closer to someone who has held you in thrall for some time. This relationship could prove to be important.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may find yourself grappling with personal issues that arise out of a situation you thought would be straightforward. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can take it on faith that someone close to you is speaking the truth -- though you're not likely to agree with him or her!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- How can you reconcile two widely divergent opinions that both seem to be valid and based on fact? That is your challenge this week! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You don't have to do what others are doing, but it can provide you with a little extra comfort.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have to look far into the future to determine whether what you are planning right now is even worth doing. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You have more at stake than you had anticipated, and things may get far more difficult than you had hoped.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You should be able to recover from a physical or psychological trauma just in time to prove to others that you're back in the game. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be vulnerable to certain shocks that would be avoidable if you had any real warning at all.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may realize that you've been playing with an incomplete deck. It's up to you to fix the problem before calling another's bluff. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You have more to do than you had planned. Friends bombard you with advice, but you can only take so much!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Something quite exciting is likely to rise from the ashes of a dream set ablaze long ago by your own impatience. This week changes things. (March 6-March 20) -- You have a surprise waiting for those who would try to surprise you first. This is a game of timing -- and advantage.
