The coming week will remind many that having their ducks in a row can prove the most important single aspect of any endeavor. Those who do will surely score points, while those who don't are just as sure to find themselves bringing up the rear, possibly even missing out on what they considered a sure thing. Those who have made a continuous, ongoing effort to get things properly in order -- both personally and professionally -- will make the most of all opportunities that arise, and some may have a very good reason to celebrate when all is said and done. There are some serious rewards awaiting those who have it all sorted out.
It's never too late, of course, to make necessary repairs and adjustments in order to maximize potential. Indeed, those who make the decision to turn over a new leaf and get things back in shape can find that they've done more than make up for lost time, and a good week is in store.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It's a good week for changing things just enough so that others think you're up to something entirely new. It shouldn't take much. (April 5-April 19) -- You needn't expect too much of yourself in order to improve exponentially. You know exactly what you must do.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to work harder than usual to pull yourself out of an emotional rut that came on recently and threatens to last. (May 6-May 20) -- Your knowledge of the way things were in the past can inspire you to reinvent yourself -- and inspire those around you in turn.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You are likely to change things for the better after someone else makes an unexpected and indelible impression. (June 7-June 20) -- You're likely to get more than one chance, but your first chance is still the most important.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You must show others that you care about what is going on around you, or you're not about to inspire the loyalty you seek. (July 8-July 22) -- Things may progress more slowly than expected, but you can better the odds in the personal arena.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may find yourself back in the swing of things after a short hiatus of sorts. You'll have a lot on your hands. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll need to wrap your head around a few difficult issues before you can get things moving apace.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're likely to come up against someone who knows what's going on much better than you, and the best thing for you to do is listen up! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Hearing a few honest opinions as the week opens is likely to give you a whole new attitude and inspire you to do more.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A brief period of awkwardness early in the week tells you so much that you are able to shake off any doubts or insecurities later on. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- A loved one is waiting for you to do what he or she knows you must do. Is the problem one of self-awareness?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You will not be satisfied by routine efforts; only going above and beyond will really bring you genuine contentment. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The time spent in and around the home can prove far more valuable to you than any you spend at work or at play.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You have only a certain amount of time to make a plan and get it moving in the right direction. Don't delay! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are eager to get up to speed, and you must rely on a few trusted friends to steer you in the right direction.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- It's time to get out and about to see what others are doing and how they are doing it. Things will soon become more competitive. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be suspicious of the experts as a rule, but you may find yourself relying on them to make things right.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to help a friend or co-worker get things back in order before a major new endeavor is undertaken. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You want to see how others are making progress under conditions similar to those that are currently proving restrictive to you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You've been talking long enough; now it's time to get moving. You'll have the opportunity to show another what you're made of. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll be tempted to make a move that others have been suggesting for some time. Go for it!
