The coming week will inspire many individuals to venture into unknown or at least unfamiliar territory, eager to uncover secrets about themselves that can be life-affirming, game-changing and utterly essential to the personal business that is now developing or may soon come to fruition. Even those who are afraid of what they may find are likely to forge ahead rather fearlessly, hopeful that some good can come of a revelation at this time. Indeed, self-knowledge can surely strengthen anyone in any area, and he or she who embraces it will find it valuable both emotionally and spiritually -- if not physically, as well.
It may come as a surprise to some that those who have claimed to be close allies are not, in fact, unquestioning, unconditional supporters. This can, in itself, have far-reaching ramifications, but at the same time, those effects needn't be negative. It is merely proof, once more, that not everything is as it seems!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll receive instructions that are not negotiable. You must be willing to speak up when your own belief system is threatened. (April 5-April 19) -- Someone is willing to grant you more than expected. Is this a sign that recent chilly relations are thawing?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're not about to hand over secrets to someone else. Guard them carefully, even though others know what they entail. (May 6-May 20) -- The difference between professional and amateur will be made quite clear to you as you attempt to raise the bar.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You will recognize a certain opportunity before anyone else, but will you be ready to take advantage of it first? (June 7-June 20) -- You're ready to commit to something you've been considering for quite some time, but a friend or loved one comes to you with a few more questions.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can learn a lot even as you focus on fun and games. How you play says a lot about you that someone else needs to know. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll be asking yourself if you've done everything possible to ensure a certain outcome. The question contains its own answer.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A misunderstanding mustn't be allowed to develop into a lasting rift. Set your pride aside and give another the benefit of the doubt.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Hoping that a certain problem will simply go away is futile at best -- and quite possibly dangerous as well. You must take action! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- There is not likely to be any disagreement about what must be done. How it must be done is something else again.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Others may be more willing than you to disturb the status quo; your reasoning is sound, but somewhat too limiting. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You are eager to look more deeply into a certain personal issue, but a loved one may not give you the support you seek.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A conflict arises when your ideas clash with those of a competitor and things heat up very quickly. Watch what you say! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may have doubts about what is possible given current time constraints, but you're willing to give it a go, nonetheless.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may want to leave what you know behind and journey into uncharted territory. Even then, the memories will be thick. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A previously unknown connection between you and another is revealed. What you do about it will be quite telling.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your goals may clash with those of another, but not for long. You'll learn much that enables you to take the high road. (March 6-March 20) -- You're not likely to get far on your own, and it will be very important for you to choose just the right companions.
