The coming week will see many individuals putting certain plans on hold in order to address unexpected developments and situations that take immediate priority. This doesn't mean that those plans must wait a long time to be revived; on the contrary, in most cases, the delay or detour should be very brief, allowing most people to return to their favored endeavors before the week is out. In those cases where the wait is longer, so much will be happening in the interim that it should seem as if time is passing quickly until plans can be put back into motion. Chance encounters may figure prominently in most everyone's affairs; such will be the role of luck and fate.
The success of one individual will depend in large part upon the success of another, and this interconnectedness is likely to be important throughout the week. Anyone who is too protective of his or her own work will surely miss out on other opportunities.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It's important for you to know precisely where you are headed, not just how you will get there. Be focused and specific. (April 5-April 19) -- Your tendency will be to do certain things in rather old-fashioned ways, but not everyone will appreciate what it is you're really trying to accomplish.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to retrace your steps toward midweek in order to make a conscious link between the past, present and future. (May 6-May 20) -- Any obstacles you face are there for a reason, and it's one you can uncover if you look hard enough.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may discover that not everyone is supporting you equally. Some around you may actually prefer a different game plan! (June 7-June 20) -- You'll be tempted to compare yourself to someone you admire, but this week's developments may skew things in his or her favor temporarily.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may discover that something you've been doing for quite some time really isn't good for you or others. Make a change! (July 8-July 22) -- You must be more realistic about what you want and how you will acquire it. Be prepared to accept certain restrictions.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Don't put off that which can and should be done. It will be a busy few days, but you'll be glad you went to the trouble. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's a good week to open your home to those who have assisted you in your efforts of late. The social scene can bring you much more than mere relaxation.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're not likely to say no to those who are asking you to go above and beyond, since you know you will come through! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- It's a busy week, but you can do much to prepare for a coming lull in the action. Family members are eager for a reunion.

(Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The true meaning of a certain situation lies deep beneath the surface, but you'll uncover it if you are persistent and patient.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Something may be weighing on you. Explore options that allow you to let go of a burden you've been hanging on to for quite a while. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll come to a deeper appreciation of another's situation, thanks to a surprise encounter that reveals the truth.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're relying a great deal on those working with you, but you may be expecting more from them than they can deliver. (March 6-March 20) -- You're going to have to face the truth head-on, without flinching. What you discover can give you strength and stature.
