The coming week will push some into new areas of experience that have never before been anticipated or even imagined, while others will find themselves backing into familiar corners that promise little in the way of opportunity or progress. What makes the difference this week, apart from the fickle finger of fortune? Much depends on one's ability to overcome those hidden fears that lurk deep within -- and the willingness to acknowledge that such fears have, for too long, been in control in some way. Those who are able to look those fears in the eye and say "enough" are the very ones who will be propelled into the future on the wings of the greatest potential, with positive spirits flowing freely.
Many will find themselves on the opposite side of an ideological fence from those who have been friends and supporters in the past. The reasons for this seeming rift will be clear enough as the week draws to a close. All must be willing to compromise to some extent.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll have some secret work to do before one of your brilliant schemes can pay off as expected. An ally has key information. (April 5-April 19) -- With the help of a friend, you can do the impossible -- but not if you keep thinking of it as "impossible."
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- The information you receive early in the week can be put to immediate use, though you may have to juggle some responsibilities later on. (May 6-May 20) -- The first and last parts of the week may not seem connected when you look back, but they are indeed subtly linked.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What gives you the strength to tackle a formidable career challenge is the same thing that allows you to face a personal situation as well. (June 7-June 20) -- You're eager to provide another with something desperately needed at this time, but the opportunities may be few and far between.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Your mood swings may be even more dramatic than usual. You will want to seek a concrete cause, but it will be hard to find. (July 8-July 22) -- The winds of change are blowing once again, and it will be difficult (but not impossible) to hang on to what you cherish most.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're likely to learn one or two surprising truths, but you'll realize that you were, in fact, suspicious all along. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Now is the time for you to up the ante and insist that others play along if they want to remain competitive with you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're likely to hear or see something in passing that has you wondering about a bigger issue. It may be time to read up. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your private concerns must remain just that -- private. Sharing too much with others can only weaken your position.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be trying to get into too much, too soon. Pace yourself, and be sure you're ready for what is about to transpire. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be working under the misconception that your way is the best way. In fact, evidence may prove you wrong -- at least in part.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may be allowing yourself to be spread a bit too thin at this time. The risks include reduced efficiency and productivity. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may not be willing to share certain information with those who are asking for it -- but why? That's the question!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Just when you thought you'd be able to let go of something at last, you'll see a very good reason to hang on a little longer. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're not likely to enjoy the freedom you had hoped for, but you can do much on your own that scores big points.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may soon be facing some tumultuous times, so take advantage of the calm before the storm. Stock up, get ready and rest yourself. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A reunion of sorts may not go as planned, and the rest of the week may progress unusually as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Others will surely come to you for input, but it may not be in time for you to have a positive impact in the anticipated ways. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Much that you encounter will soon become clearly understood, after the surprising initial revelation.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your ability to go with the flow will surely come in handy, though on at least one occasion, you may have to put your foot down. (March 6-March 20) -- A slippery situation is nothing for you to worry about, as you're used to dealing with that kind of thing.
