The coming week is likely to see many individuals choosing from among several available doors -- but these entry points may not lead precisely to what is advertised by each. Indeed, there are surprises in store, and caution must be employed by anyone who doesn't want to find him- or herself overwhelmed by circumstances for which he or she has not prepared. Charging blindly into the unknown may be exciting for some, but it can be quite dangerous. Conversely, being too fearful or skittish can result in coming up empty-handed, without any of the potential gains that could arise from the week's promised opportunities.
Differences in approach may be fascinating to study. What one person does -- and why -- is likely to contrast sharply with what another person does -- and why. In fact, the reasons are likely to be far more interesting and illuminating than the actions themselves. Motives tell the tale!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- The financial scene isn't likely to provide you with many answers, so you may have to experiment. Don't be careless, even with small amounts! (April 5-April 19) -- The simplest plan can be complicated quickly by unwanted intrusions. Keep things safe and simple.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Though there are some who say you aren't likely to come out on top, by week's end you can surely be one of the frontrunners. (May 6-May 20) -- You are able to see things in a new light. What happens after a chance encounter may surprise you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The choices you make can affect your health and state of mind. Don't underestimate the importance of the little things. (June 7-June 20) -- You may choose to make a change that others warn against, but you feel you know the dangers.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may have to experience several false alarms before the expected event is finally upon you. You're ready to face it head-on. (July 8-July 22) -- You may have to conduct a rather exhaustive search before finding that one essential missing ingredient.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- It's up to you to determine what must be done in the case of an emergency, though not everyone agrees that it is an emergency. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You know how to stop something bad from happening, but any delay may work against you. Get moving now!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're grappling with ideas that seem almost impossible until you realize they're related to something you've already done. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Focus on what lies between this and that. It's what goes on "in between" that will prove most important to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can lead the way for others, but be sure that you have prepared yourself to face certain fears that are yours alone. (Oct. 8-Oct. 21) -- You don't want others to think that things are harder than they are because of your own reactions. Be sure to keep your emotions in check.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're after something that others have reached for but not attained. Play your cards right, and you won't come up empty-handed. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Repetition is the key to success. The more you do a thing, the more natural it will become, and that bodes well for everyone.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're going to have to make do with some kind of substitute during the first part of the week, until what you really want arrives. (Dec. 8-Dec. 22) -- A social gathering may become more of a working engagement for you. Be ready to share ideas.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Things are likely to heat up, particularly after dark, when you may be surprised by another's willingness to follow along. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- It's time to move from the shadows into the sun. You've been trying to go unnoticed for long enough.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Information you receive as the week begins can help you navigate a difficult time ahead. No one knows better than you what you must do. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Others will feel as though they have the answer, but you must trust your experience and instincts.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You must choose wisely. Others are depending on you to take a stand. Don't let anyone tell you that you don't have what it takes. (March 6-March 20) -- The risk of loss is not great, but that doesn't mean it can't happen. Keep track of your resources.
