The coming week is likely to give new meaning to much that is often taken for granted. Each and every individual will discover that there is much more to be thankful for than he or she normally considers. This is a week when the many lessons learned will provide positive, uplifting perspective. Those who insist that things are bleak, that the best is behind them, or even that "the end is near" are sure to be in the minority. Such pessimists are likely to find that, as the week comes to a close, the laugh is on them as they are left without, while those who subscribe to the many affirmations the week has to offer walk away winners. This week, many more than usual should be wearing smiles on their faces!
It's not that bad things won't happen this week, or a bad mood won't descend upon some or that the clouds cannot build around those who are otherwise doing their best. It is more about perspective and outlook; for most, even the bad will have its positive meanings and progressive implications.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- While routine can give you a sense of comfort and familiarity, the unexpected helps you keep your head in the game! (April 5-April 19) -- Keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground. That which is fast approaching must not take you by surprise.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Others may be gravitating toward you throughout the week, and you'll understand why just in time to make the best of the situation. (May 6-May 20) -- You may not feel as though you and a good friend are truly "in sync," but you can make an adjustment that remedies the situation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- A past inability to see what was right in front of you is likely to be replaced by a keen sense of what is coming -- and just in time! (June 7-June 20) -- You're in for a long haul of sorts, but you are also afforded a chance to cut loose in an unusual way.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Others are always interested in what you have to say, but this week you may find it difficult to put your thoughts into words. (July 8-July 22) -- Shunning that which is undesirable may not always be the best approach, as it can seriously limit what you learn.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You have your sights set on something that is far out of reach right now. Others fault you for being unrealistic, but you can do it! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's important for you to follow through in every possible way. You want to leave no loose ends.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're going to want to start the week on just the right note, but don't worry if you are unsure of what that is. Read the signs. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A gathering storm has you worrying about what is to come, but it is likely to vanish as if by magic before it affects you at all.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll be reunited with someone who has inspired you in the past, but don't expect everything to be the same as it once was. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Focus on the unexpected, and you will find yourself evolving at a much faster rate than you would otherwise.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Containment is the best way to deal with a problem; you can't make it go away, but you can keep it from growing out of control. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be thinking about what others have given you in the past, and this is a reflection of what you need right now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have to keep track of much that happens outside your range of vision, and you'll employ several unique skills. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can gain experience by following in another's footsteps. He or she will show you the ropes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Someone will catch you up just enough for you to appreciate and understand everything when you are there for the next phase. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- There's no reason for you to think that you cannot perform as well as -- or better than -- your closest rival.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're expecting things to move rather slowly, but you're likely to be surprised. The pace may actually be very fast! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're trying to keep up with one who has set the pace again and again -- but this week, you may actually be able to take the lead.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You want to get certain unavoidable duties out of the way as quickly as possible in order to exploit your own creativity. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be afraid of where a new project is likely to take you, but there is no reason to think you cannot shine.
