The coming week is likely to see some individuals reach a state of "critical mass," during which certain issues and endeavors must be resolved in such a way that forward motion can be restored. It may be very slow going for some, as the need to be unusually careful with each and every step becomes paramount; any wrong footing can result in disaster. Always remember: The bigger they are, the harder they fall! Everyone should prepare to encounter personal difficulties as things come to a climax, but it's nothing that cannot be ironed out. It's merely a fact that as tensions rise without, they also rise within; family members and loved ones will not always respond rationally.
Some may discover that they are far more capable of juggling multiple objectives than they had ever thought -- and this will be a very good time to explore just how much can be done at once. This certainly isn't going to lessen the overall stress level, but it can result in a world of good in the long run.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're eager to get started on a new project that involves someone who brings out the best in you. Put your heads together now. (April 5-April 19) -- You don't want to find yourself at a disadvantage simply because you were careless. Give every moment its due.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're eager to collaborate with someone who knows how to bring the best to every endeavor -- just take care you don't become bossy! (May 6-May 20) -- The time has come for you to acknowledge a past mistake so that you can escape the hold it has over you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Trying to do too much at once without the proper rest and preparation is sure to sap your strength -- and your enthusiasm. (June 7-June 20) -- You're eager to share what you know with someone who respects what you bring to the table. He or she may give you the reins.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're looking in the wrong places for the things you want to surround yourself with; they're already in your possession! (July 8-July 22) -- You must think through your plans carefully. If you sense they will affect others adversely, you may have to make changes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You don't always have to see things as clearly as others to move forward as planned, but you cannot keep your eyes shut! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You're ready to receive exactly what you think you deserve. In the end, you may get even more than you bargained for.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be contacted by someone who is more aware of what you can do than you are. Accept his or her counsel! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may find yourself in an uncomfortable position toward midweek. How did you get there, and how do you get out?
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- What you see going on around you may not inspire you as expected. You're going to have to find inspiration elsewhere. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Someone in charge may not fully understand what you are capable of doing, but you can demonstrate clearly.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Your ability to see things from all possible angles will come in handy. You can share those benefits with others. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may want to isolate yourself somewhat, but you must first tend to one particular piece of business.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You are planning something big, but not everyone is willing to share resources or give you the help you need. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may be trying to move too quickly. Take everything a bit more slowly, and you'll avoid making a few obvious mistakes.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may surprise yourself by making a decision that solves a great many problems all at once -- and others subsequently. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- If you try to carry everyone's burden, you will surely fail; do what you know you can, and others will respond in kind.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're going to have to remember dates, times, names and faces, as such details are likely to prove far more important than usual. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't turn a blind eye to what another is doing. You know it's a mistake, and you can stop it and change his or her course.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're going to want to do something entirely on your own -- and if you can, in complete seclusion. (March 6-March 20) -- The shorter answers are likely to have the greatest impact; in fact, "yes" and "no" are likely to suffice!
