The coming week will see many individuals working tirelessly to allow their talents to shine more brightly than they have in the past. Those who are afraid to let it all hang out, who are sheepish about putting themselves on display and who have a natural aversion to "showing off" in any way will surely have a hard time of it, as all of this will be essential. An element of showmanship will be required of everyone, and he or she who is able to combine a vibrant display of talent with honest motives and intentions can surely win the day, enjoying both accolades and tangible rewards in the end. Everyone has something that he or she can do better than most; this is the week to let the world know it!
Some may find themselves fighting an uphill battle of sorts, however, especially when it comes to interacting smoothly with others. Not everyone will recognize anything but braggadocio in those who are giving it their all; this may result in some friction at home, or among friends and loved ones.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may have gotten into something recently that you didn't fully understand, and you must learn a few key lessons very quickly. (April 5-April 19) -- Thinking that you're better than others won't be your only mistake. You can make everything right, however.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- There is a difference between confidence and cockiness, and you'll have a chance to show others that you know where the line is. (May 6-May 20) -- You may uncover a few facts early in the week that give you the advantage as you move closer to an important personal goal.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You mustn't neglect the needs of family members as you tend to your own desires. You can strike a balance that serves everyone well. (June 7-June 20) -- Not everyone will understand what you are really trying to accomplish, but that is all the more reason for you to carry on.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll be given the opportunity to contribute to someone's important efforts. You mustn't try to take over, however. (July 8-July 22) -- Know when it's your turn and when it's not, be sure you give another the support and attention he or she needs.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll hear from someone dear to you about something that is fast approaching. He or she really wants your input and involvement. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A good friend is able to supply you with all the moral support you need, even though a great distance stands between you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The help you offer someone as the week opens will allow you to be more on top of your own game when the time comes. Avoid generalities. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You'll have the chance to speak up for someone who is unwilling to speak up for himself in an hour of need.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Everyone knows what you are about, but don't assume that your own personality is enough to win the day. Get your facts straight!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A trip down memory lane may have you making promises about the weeks to come that leave others wondering if you can do it all. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Take care that your ambitions don't overtake your capabilities at this time. You must remain realistic in your expectations.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- A slow and steady approach is probably best, though you may encounter at least one situation that requires some quick maneuvering. (March 6-March 20) -- You can learn a great deal by watching someone you admire do what he does so well. Soon, you'll be hitting your stride.
