The coming week will see the past and the present merge together in unexpected but valuable ways for many individuals. Those who are eager to learn from what has gone before in order to secure the best for themselves in the time ahead will benefit greatly from all that transpires. Those who have little connection with tradition or heritage, or who think that anything old is merely old-fashioned and therefore of little use, are sure to have a hard time of it -- or, at the very least, they will miss the boat when it comes to combining the best of what was with the best of what is and building for themselves a bright future.
Attention to every conceivable detail is required. Those who are willing to let things slide -- for whatever reason -- are going to hear about it from someone, at some point, and the result of such an encounter is not likely to be pleasant. There's no excuse for doing less than one can; only the best will reap the best.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Long-range planning is a big part of your week, but you mustn't lose sight of your immediate surroundings as you look ahead. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll know a mistake when you make it, and that should give you enough time to undo it as best you can. Don't get stymied!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You and a partner must be willing to roll up your sleeves and work together. Solo efforts aren't likely to yield results. (May 6-May 20) -- You must be ready to stop what you are doing and move in another direction quickly should the opportunity arise.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You must work hard to get back on track. If you are able to get back where you belong, you'll begin to score new successes. (June 7-June 20) -- Someone who knows what he's doing is going to give you the guidance you need. The week will have its ups and downs.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may have trouble getting used to some of the changes that are happening all around you. Keep your wits about you at all times. (July 8-July 22) -- If things become tense early on, you must be willing to relinquish control and listen to another.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You and your team have got to know who is really in charge, or the week is sure to be a confusing disappointment. Get in the game! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may find that you are doing a certain thing for all the wrong reasons. You have a chance to change course.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You know where to turn to get the proper perspective on what you think is going wrong. Don't hide anything! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You have much more going on than you think, and any attempt to sidestep certain issues will backfire on you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may take something just a bit too far and send everyone over the edge at some point. A quick fix is out of reach. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to hear from someone who has been out of touch for a while. Even a simple "hello" can turn you around.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Now is no time for you to recede into the shadows. You must be willing to step front and center and take on a leading role. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're waiting for someone close to you to cross the line, but he or she knows your limits and is on good behavior.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A breakdown in communication must not be blamed on another; you are responsible for those within your inner circle. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You know who is trying to get the better of you, but you have a few tricks up your sleeve and can come out on top.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You're eager to show someone just what you know and what you can do with that knowledge. Don't get carried away, however. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The behavior of another may have you seeing red at some point, but take care you don't sacrifice a pet project as a result.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Someone is trying to help you, but it's not going to work if you allow yourself to get defensive -- or worse, act high and mighty. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're ready to do something special for someone who is by your side almost all the time. Give him or her your full attention.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're waiting for a confirmation from someone you expect to collaborate with very soon, but he or she has a surprise for you. (March 6-March 20) -- You're trying too hard to prepare for what comes. Instead, you're burdening yourself with unreal concerns.
