The coming week is likely to see one phase end and another begin, as many work toward completing a past goal that has been long pursued while looking ahead to a new one that has been long imagined. It is possible to work on both at once, of course, but priority must be given to what is most time-sensitive. All must be aware of timelines and schedules in order to formulate plans that allow maximum progress and efficiency, while encouraging creativity and flexibility. Some may find the week bittersweet, as it is finally time to bid farewell to something that has just come to fruition, but there will be little opportunity to indulge in any greater remembrance than that, as a bright future beckons and demands action.
What has been learned over the past 12 months will prove valuable almost immediately, and a look at the year to come will reveal certain paths that had not been anticipated. Indeed, many roads ahead will offer more than expected, and this will surely prove exciting to those who have the best idea of what is to come.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Someone makes you an offer that may change things for you in a subtle but meaningful way. You may have to wait to follow up, however. (April 5-April 19) -- You have certain responsibilities that will not wait, but keep in mind something you want to pursue later.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're likely to receive certain instructions that have you making plans that take you somewhat by surprise. Follow your heart! (May 6-May 20) -- You'll come to a certain realization early in the week that inspires you to take an unusual course of action.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What you can offer up for public consumption is likely to have more significance than you had anticipated. (June 7-June 20) -- You may have to face one or two personal fears before you can make a move in a certain bold direction.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may be challenged by someone who sees in you greater potential than you had originally thought. He or she will stick with you. (July 8-July 22) -- Your own confidence and natural charm will win over one of your critics, and a valuable partnership of sorts will be forged.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A competition may have you behaving in a more aggressive fashion than usual, and you must be sure to keep things fun and lively. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can derive a great deal of inspiration and motivation from what has happened over the past year -- though changes will have to be made.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be planning something that a loved one isn't likely to support at first. You'll work out a positive compromise. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You are likely to yield to pressure from someone who has a different outlook. This is an opportunity!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- The pace is likely to be much quicker than you had foreseen, but you have what it takes to keep up -- and maybe even surge ahead. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll understand more clearly the connections between you and another -- and you'll find a way to exploit them, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You'll want to share your experiences with another, and not simply forge ahead on your own. Creative communication is the key.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A loved one is willing to go through what you're going through, so you don't have to do it alone. Share impressions! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Things may not fall together the way you had expected. Your own flexibility will make all the difference to you and others.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- There will be much for others to do, and that which is done in concert with others will have the greatest impact. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A variety of options are made available, and you'll want to explore as many as possible -- if only from a distance.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A surprise has you lurching forward unexpectedly, but you can control your affairs effectively, through instinct. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may find yourself getting closer to someone who has been on the periphery recently. Be open to all possibilities.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- An interruption early in the week has you putting off something that you had wanted to do as quickly as possible. You still have time. (March 6-March 20) -- Certain things may not fall out as planned, but you'll identify some new opportunities as a result.
