The coming week is likely to see many individuals digging themselves out of all manner of personal and professional holes, ruts that have resulted from any number of causes, from bad decisions to accidental missteps to disadvantageous relationships, and the like. Everyone will be tempted to say, "It's not my fault," and there is something to this, surely! The whole truth, however, is just as the adage suggests: "It takes two to tango," and everyone will have to face the music in order to make up for lost ground. There should be no lasting ill effects, but that doesn't mean that negative developments are not deeply felt. On the contrary, the bad is still bad, and the good is still good.
Much will depend on the timeliness of decisions; anyone who is ready to pull the trigger and move when the time is right will surely benefit. Even then, those who are unaware of their surroundings, or of unseen influences, may not be able to benefit as much as they might otherwise.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- That which was bad may be transformed into something good, and the opposite is not likely to happen. (April 5-April 19) -- You seem to know what another is up to, yet you still might be surprised -- in a good way.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll enjoy seeing things through a new lens. What happens as a result can be long remembered -- and built upon, too. (May 6-May 20) -- You will almost certainly feel as though that one particular burden has been lifted from your shoulders.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You don't want to wait to do that which must be completed before the week is out. Get it done as soon as possible, and consider it a triumph. (June 7-June 20) -- An adventure unfolds, requiring you to do certain things that you didn't think would come naturally.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll have the strangest feeling that you're doing something you've done before -- in fact, the entire week could seem "recycled" in some way. (July 8-July 22) -- The more critical you are of others, the more criticism you will, in turn, attract. There's no need to be that way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may receive kind words from one who is in a position to ask something from you when the time is right. Do you believe what you hear? (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You have one or two serious questions to ask, and no one is likely to be forthcoming with the answers.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- That which was only a hobby may become something more before the week is out. Much depends on who is watching you at this time. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You'll finally feel as though someone in particular is ready to validate you in some way -- and indeed, you deserve it!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can be more patient and more soft-spoken. In this way, you'll be able to judge others as they are, in a more natural light. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your energy is on the rise, but you may have to work harder than others to channel that energy into a single productive endeavor.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may find yourself engaged in a game of one-upmanship with someone who is perhaps better equipped than you -- for now. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may not know how to express yourself in the most efficient way as the week opens, but you can get the message across eventually.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Slow and steady wins the race for some, but you are ready to spring into action and do as much as you can as quickly as possible. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The unusual and the controversial come together in a way that has you winning praise from those who were your critics in the past.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You can make your presence felt in a subtle manner. You don't want to step on any toes. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Avoid any selfish impulses. The more you strive to give to others, the more you'll get in return.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The outlook will be much brighter than you may have anticipated. The recent past gives you a fine perspective. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll be able to respond to another's enthusiasm with even greater enthusiasm. You can surely concoct something together.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- There's little chance of being left out; others are keenly aware of what you have to offer, and they look forward to it. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll enjoy a renewed sense of purpose, yet you will still have the flexibility you require to explore your options freely.
