The coming week is likely to present two separate views of the future to those who have the wherewithal and the ability to see that far and that clearly: one in which things are as they are, and one in which they are seen as they might be. There is no telling, of course, whether that "might be" comprises what one might actually want, or might want to avoid -- that can only be surmised with time and experience -- but it will be clear that there is a disparity between what is, right now, and what may be in the future -- good or bad. There will be much to work toward, and all should recognize opportunity when it arises.
Difficulties erupt when friends, family members and loved ones find themselves on opposite sides of the debate as to whether what is foreseen is good or bad -- and only by hashing things out can any conflict be resolved. Those who try to avoid argument may serve only to delay or prolong it.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You won't have anyone cramping your style. Be sure you establish clear limits and insist they be respected. (April 5-April 19) -- Before you find yourself working closely beside those you do not know well, you'll want to assess their suitability on many levels.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're likely to receive an assignment that does not come due for quite some time -- but throughout the week, you can lay out your strategy. (May 6-May 20) -- If you find yourself wondering if what you do or say is appropriate, it very likely is not. Your self-awareness is keen at this time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- After procrastinating day after day, you'll finally set about getting certain things done just as the week is coming to a close. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll be surprised to learn just what another has to offer. All week long, you'll be wanting to counter with equal audacity.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're not about to lay down your tools until you have reached a sensible stopping point -- or completed a certain task altogether. (July 8-July 22) -- Now is the time for you to reach out to someone from whom you have been far too distant for far too long.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may find yourself moving closer and closer to someone who rubbed you the wrong way only a short while ago. Things are changing, surely. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have the chance to work closely with someone you have long admired. He or she will be impressed with your abilities.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can knock down many barriers, and though others may benefit more directly than you, you will at least get the credit. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You want to get to know someone better, and you'll have the chance to do just that -- in many ways, in fact.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have good reason to share what you are doing with others. What they have to offer can benefit you as well. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're in no position to demand anything of anyone that he or she has not given in the past. The same old rules still apply!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- One thing leads to another, and there is no guessing when the trend may end. Those who ride the current wave can enjoy success. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be able to silence your critics as you perform well above expectations in most things.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You know when to spring into action -- and when to leave well enough alone. Indeed, the latter is more important. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may be looking closely for opportunities where there have been none in the past, but you sense that things are changing for the better.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You should be able to go the distance at least once, but perhaps two or three times. Energy and stamina are on the rise. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A close friend comes to you with certain needs that only you can fulfill, but can you afford to do so at this time?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- What you see in the distant future may give you pause, but what you see later this week is reason enough to keep things moving forward. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You are not willing to give in simply because someone tells you to do so; you have too much fight left in you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may be left wondering why someone doesn't get back in touch with you after you reached out in his or her direction. (March 6-March 20) -- Family matters will give you a great deal to think about. When you take action, be sure it is fair to everyone affected.
