The coming week will require many to double up on their efforts to accomplish something lasting -- and do so in a way that allows their attention to be split between two or more seemingly different endeavors. The truth, however, is that anything one does is likely to be related to a central concern -- a concern that informs everything else and is so important to daily health and progress that it is impossible to move forward without giving it the attention it deserves. And therein lies the trick, of course! This central issue requires attention, indeed, but other peripheral things must be done, and done well, simultaneously, throughout the week. It is a week that gives "multitasking" a whole new meaning!
Some may find that the emotional burdens that come with certain key issues are more than they can bear without complaint. However, complaining itself is not always recommended or even possible. What can be productive is honest talk with friends and loved ones; solutions can arise from such candid conversations.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're going to have to pick up the pace as the week gets going, so that you reach maximum velocity in time for it to do you the most good. (April 5-April 19) -- A friend comes to you for counsel early on and leaves feeling much better about him- or herself toward week's end.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- It's not always possible for you to do what you know is best for you, but this week you can surely avoid what is worst! (May 6-May 20) -- It's time to settle into a new routine that can allow you to maximize your efficiency at home and at work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may receive word from a friend or loved one in need. Make the time to give advice and hands-on assistance. (June 7-June 20) -- Ideas are presented that have you wondering what might be possible. Don't get ahead of yourself, however!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can avoid giving fodder to those who would criticize, and do so without being secretive or deceptive. (July 8-July 22) -- You mustn't do anything halfway -- be sure that you are fully committed to any endeavor you undertake.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll surely enjoy reaching into a grab bag of sorts, though what you pull out of it may be cause for a change of plans at some point. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Take care that in reaching for the brass ring you don't fall right off the horse! Know your limits.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll know just what needs to be said, and how -- but finding the right time to say it is likely to be the trickiest part. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may have to do a little more research than usual to come up with the answers sought by someone in charge.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can expect to be on the move throughout much of the week. If you are held back, be aware that it is of your own doing. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll be intrigued by the behavior of someone who claims to be inspired by you. There's a disconnect somewhere, clearly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Something unexpected is likely to bring you to your senses, and this will be the cause of much rejoicing among your friends. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A difference of opinion is clear, but you can keep this conflict from taking hold in a way that is out of proportion.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be getting into unfamiliar territory. With what do you need to equip yourself in order to progress apace? (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Now is the time for you to assert yourself at the workplace; you've been letting things go on this way for too long!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have trouble understanding certain rules and regulations, though you should have no trouble following them. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You have a firm grip on a complicated concept, but explaining what you know may not be easy. Start slowly, but don't condescend.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You certainly want to do things your way, but a family member is just as adamant about his or her preferences. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- What happens as a result of a brief misstep is likely to prove both good and bad -- and certainly worth remembering.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You and a partner are of one mind when it comes to motives and methods, but your visions of the final result may be quite different. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll have the chance to ride in on your white horse and save the day for someone who is caught in a personal web of sorts.
