The coming week will see many individuals going through a brief but intense period of self-evaluation -- culminating, in the best cases, in self-discovery that itself promotes all manner of opportunities and endeavors. Everyone must be willing to accept what he or she sees in the mirror, and to take responsibility for those things that need to change, as well as credit for those things that are solid, positive and productive. Yes, it's true, not everyone is perfect -- not even you! The willingness to face that fact and accept your liabilities as well as your strengths will surely give you the overall advantage in all manner of situations.
It is important for everyone to remember that the invisible is likely to be quite apparent. A look, a gesture or a simple tone of voice can speak volumes, letting others know much more than anyone might want to reveal. A bad attitude will betray itself eventually!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your ability to foresee events will come in handy, but use caution! You're not going to want to reveal everything, surely. (April 5-April 19) -- The person who calls the shots will want you to take a position of increased responsibility. Be ready!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have trouble staying out of your own way for a while as you try to get your ducks in a row. Streamline your approach! (May 6-May 20) -- You may be forced to allot less time to a pressing personal problem because of increased responsibility in the workplace.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Others are more than willing to give you the time you need to finish what you've set out to do. You must do yourself the same courtesy! (June 7-June 20) -- You may feel as though all eyes are on you, and indeed, your actions are likely to attract a great deal of attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may feel as though you're not yet ready to unveil the fruits of your labor, and you may have to renegotiate contract terms accordingly. (July 8-July 22) -- It may seem as though the time has never been better for a certain once-in-a-lifetime effort. Gather your forces!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Your abilities will shine, but someone with whom you are working closely may not appreciate your efforts -- or your subtle persuasion. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have to explain something in terms that are far less than flattering -- but you'll reveal a truth that should be known.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're likely to discover that something you've underestimated is actually worth much more than the sum of its parts. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're waiting for that good news to come, but you have much more to address in the interim. Don't let a moment pass you by!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may find it more difficult than usual to arrange personal business, due to special circumstances. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You must share information freely as you receive it, or you're not likely to make the kind of progress you're counting on.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Someone else may be promoting an idea far more aggressively than you are, so you must ensure that he or she doesn't steal your thunder. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll find yourself in an ongoing situation that requires you to use a great deal of self-restraint.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may come perilously close to breaking a promise, but a clever manipulation of your schedule should prevent it. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to be thinking -- and acting -- for a great many others. Be sure to employ your 360-degree awareness!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Your focus should be on what you have to accomplish by a certain deadline this week; don't let another's demands distract you. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can help another see the truth about him- or herself -- and you're likely to receive a very surprising thank you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A friend reaches out to you from afar, giving you good reason to break with tradition and take some surprising action. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're likely to realize that someone you've long looked up to isn't all that far above you, after all!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're going to have to work harder than usual to ensure that everyone is on the same page and working toward the same goal. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll discover that someone who has been critical of your work in the past is now more than a loyal supporter.
