The coming week is likely to see imagination rewarded in all its forms, from the pragmatic to the fanciful, from the lofty to the down-to-earth, from the merely pleasurable to the highly profitable. All these and more will have a place throughout the week; indeed, what might have been called merely "flights of fancy" only a week ago will now be considered valuable journeys through which many can arrive at a greater understanding of themselves, the world around them and their place in it. Indeed, much that was overlooked before -- or simply discounted -- will get the attention it deserves and be valued more highly than ever.
Some may be challenged by those who know more, who have enjoyed more experience in a given field or who are simply more fearless, but that doesn't mean that victory is out of reach. Everyone will have the chance to score an upset, though doing so is likely to require working outside of one's own comfort zone.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll be quite interested in a prophecy of sorts, and in how you will be a part of making it come true. Your role may be a strange one. (April 5-April 19) -- What appears before you will compel you to follow, and what rises behind you will surely spur you on.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may not fully understand all the implications of certain developments, but it's best to consider one at a time. (May 6-May 20) -- You can lift yourself out of your current rut by heeding your own advice -- and your instincts.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The first half of the week develops very much as expected, but the second will bring with it more surprises than you are used to facing. (June 7-June 20) -- The start of something big is just around the corner. You'll have the chance to prepare.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Your ability to assess a situation quickly and accurately will surely come in handy. Others will be depending on you. (July 8-July 22) -- Someone is likely to come to you with a proposition, but you see greater possibilities than he or she is likely to present.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can afford to let go a bit more than usual. What happens as a result may be more than pleasurable, but profitable too. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You've been focusing on that which is real, but that which is unreal may actually figure more prominently at the moment.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're seeing things in a rather conventional way right now, but one or two events are likely to challenge that point of view. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Now is the time to more aggressively pursue what you want -- but you must be sure you have a workable plan.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're eager to see where the week will take you, but you mustn't relinquish all control. You are a key player in your own affairs! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Others may be surprised at a certain bit of news, but not you. You've expected this turn of events.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You have been working long and hard on a project that inspires both admiration and criticism in others. Both reactions are valid. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- What you do is marginally less important than how you do it. You'll receive points for style.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll want to go about your business in a manner that gives you maximum flexibility, as there is some exploring to be done. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Safety is likely to prove an issue at all times. You mustn't let another's bad judgment compromise you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- He or she who most wants to connect with you will do so, one way or another. You must be ready for what results. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You're eager to prove that you've still got it, but take care that you don't risk too much for only a moderate gain.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Keep your wits about you and focus on those things that can be proven. Someone may be trying to trip you up. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to come up with one or two plans that are both quite viable, but one in particular offers the rewards you seek.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- What you want isn't in question, but how you plan to get it is. You've tried numerous sensible tactics; now try something far-fetched. (March 6-March 20) -- You may discover that the very thing you've been doing to raise your confidence level has actually been chipping away at it.
