The coming week is likely to require an increased level of awareness -- of internal processes and rhythms, as well as external forces and influences. These inward and outward elements of one's energy and experience will combine in interesting and perhaps wholly unexpected ways, demanding, in a sense, "eyes in the back of one's head," so that nothing important is missed and everything finds its proper place in the landscape of perception. Knowing what is going on is only half the battle, of course; much depends on an individual's ability to separate the wheat from the chaff and build reserves that can be used in lean times, when things are not so clear.
Pride can be a danger this week; anyone who is too willing to believe the good things that are said about him or her runs the risk of increasing personal vulnerability -- for there are always those who would like to knock such individuals off of their pedestals. Remember: The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may find yourself traveling an unfamiliar road, but someone who is by your side can help you navigate around hazards. (April 5-April 19) -- You may realize that something completely unexpected is going on between you and a friend.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Your eagerness to prove yourself may actually work against you as you expose yourself to one or two unnecessary risks. (May 6-May 20) -- You can capitalize on a mistake made by someone who is trying to go too fast. What is to be learned, and how can you avoid the same fate?
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be sorry to see a certain personal phase come to an end, but excited to see it replaced by one that holds much promise. (June 7-June 20) -- The more you practice with others, the sooner the whole team will begin working like a well-oiled machine.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may have much to do to please someone who is expecting something special. You know how to do what you must! (July 8-July 22) -- Random events affect you profoundly. Some may actually have you stepping up your creative efforts and exploring new options.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be one of the last to fit yourself into a situation that favors what you have to offer. Those who come behind you will have trouble. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A message that comes to you through unconventional channels must be heard, digested and acted upon immediately.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You mustn't let another's words of warning keep you from exploring what is laid out before you. A bold approach can work! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Someone who is getting closer to you may be asking more than you can give, but that may change very soon.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- On with the show! You've prepared fully and considered what you will do if asked to engage in an extended run. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're no beginner, but it may seem as though you're experiencing certain things for the very first time.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov. 7) -- The curtain may rise on a scene that you have assembled with great care, though there are certain variables that you can't control. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- As one thing fades from view, you'll begin to notice something on the horizon that carries with it much more potential.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Take care that you don't let envy control you. Sure, you admire what another has done, but maintain a positive view. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- It's time for you to get what you deserve, and you can make things happen that satisfy you on many different levels.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- No rainfall is going to keep you from doing what you've planned so carefully -- and for so long. You can weather any storm! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be anticipating a trouble-free week, but as the weekend approaches, things may seem to jump the track -- if only briefly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Sorrows should be few. The joys you experience as a result of doing what you do best can erase almost any negative feelings. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may have pushed yourself to the limit recently, but you'll have a chance to replenish those stores of energy and enthusiasm.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll be watching the world pass by from a safe and comfortable perch during the first part of the week. What lessons can you learn? (March 6-March 20) -- You'll be engaged in a team sport that demands the utmost in etiquette and consideration.
