The coming week is likely to require a renewed dedication to endeavors that have been long in development -- and which very soon may begin to pay off. The key, of course, is a willingness to put in that extra effort. Without it, though the status quo may be maintained, no additional rewards will be forthcoming, and some personal difficulties may result. Many individuals have recently done things to attract attention, and expectations will have risen dramatically as a result. Now it is time for all to prove that they can indeed come through as expected -- and most will do just that.
Domestic tranquility may be hard to come by this week, as so much attention must be paid to those endeavors and responsibilities that take one out of the home. Family matters, of necessity, will come second for a while. It is important for everyone to connect whenever and however they can, and to make only such promises as can be kept.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're able to add up all your accomplishments this week and present a proposal that will get the attention of those in authority. (April 5-April 19) -- You may be surprised to learn just what you have accomplished lately -- and what it all means to those around you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're waiting for someone close to you to respond to a newly apparent need. He or she may not be fully aware of your current position.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You must watch the clock carefully as you try to juggle a great many responsibilities. Not everyone will express his or her needs clearly. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to win the support of someone who has been reluctant to back you in the past -- but it can be done.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The pace quickens with each new accomplishment. You'll want to keep track of what your money buys you -- large or small. (March 6-March 20) -- You're giving others all you can, but you'll also want to give yourself what you most need right now.
