The coming week is likely to see a confrontation arise between conflicting ideologies -- and, in many cases, the battleground may well be within an individual's own mind and psyche. What this means, of course, is that many will be torn, internally, between two very different perspectives, ideas, plans or strategies, both of which seem viable on one hand, yet on the other seem to go against one's own sense of what is right, proper and acceptable. Honest reflection and talk can solve this problem, freeing troubled individuals from the kind of internal conflict that can prove quite detrimental. Those who aren't willing to talk about what is going on are sure to prolong it -- and suffer the consequences.
It is likely that many will realize that while they may have been considering only two options and making themselves vulnerable to internal conflict and stress, a third option actually exists. The recognition of this other choice can make the difference between success and failure.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You should be able to repair any damage that results from an unavoidable conflict. Stay connected! (April 5-April 19) -- Family members give you every reason to stay the course, and you'll discover a way to maximize your rewards.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be considering a course of action that is not likely to be popular, even though you are certain it is necessary.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be approached by someone who wants to make a deal. The rest of the week will follow a course that promotes this new arrangement. (June 7-June 20) -- You may claim that things are getting out of control, but this is likely an overreaction to certain unexpected developments.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may see some of your more unusual ideas become far more mainstream. What happens next may surprise even you. (July 8-July 22) -- A negotiation results in several new possibilities. One, at least, proves quite attractive to you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Your home may become a battleground as you attempt to sort out issues that are pulling family members in two directions. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- High performance depends upon efficiency and the ability to close your eyes and mind to potential distractions.
