The coming week will bring good fortune to those who are able to look at themselves openly and honestly and commit to necessary change within a given time frame and according to certain accepted rules. There is no making it up as you go along; everything must be done in proven ways that have been effective in the past. Those who think that just any old approach is going to work are in for quite a surprise, as they will see less than the desired results and be put in situations that demand they do more than they had originally bargained for. In other words, those who try to buck the system are in for a hard time of it!
When it comes to love and romance, the heart must be allowed to cool at times before enjoying a warm-up of any kind. This is for one's own safety, to be sure, for he or she who gets involved in too much at once is sure to bear the scars later on. A little moderation is a good thing.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You will have the chance to open a whole new door in your mind when you encounter the unexpected. Don't be afraid! (April 5-April 19) -- You may have the chance to wear many hats, and in the process you'll discover your niche and head off on a journey of discovery.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may find your load lightened. Your inner self is likely to speak to your conscious self with more energy. (May 6-May 20) -- Self-awareness is the key to success. Don't do anything for which you feel you are ill-suited.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- There is a very real danger of cracking under pressure unless you strengthen that part of yourself that will be challenged. (June 7-June 20) -- Your subconscious will keep you from doing or saying anything that could put you in real danger, but it's still possible to offend.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Strengthen your outer shell, and you will be able to resist most everything that comes your way. Inner strength matters, too. (July 8-July 22) -- You're likely to be taken down memory lane by someone who holds the key to something you've long kept locked.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be introduced to someone who has much in common with you, but through the first part of the week, your reaction may be a negative one. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You're in no position to tell others what they should or should not do; focus instead on your own personal rules.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The fabric of time may be torn by someone who doesn't respect your place in the scheme of things. This presents a certain mystery. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may feel unprepared for a certain undertaking; your training may be minimal, but a natural talent is revealed.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Don't stop believing in that which got you where you are. Others may turn to you for advice and personal assistance. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself juggling happiness and sadness; both emotions are linked to the same recent event.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're likely to get advice from someone much younger than you about something you know much more about, but it's advice worth taking!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- The question of whether something is actually magic or not will compel you to explore an issue you've avoided in the past. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can enjoy yourself more than expected if you allow yourself time to let go of things that are burdensome.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may want to try something entirely new, but a warning may keep you from revving up when the time comes. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may find yourself becoming angry when a friend or loved one persists in holding a grudge. Don't let the past rule you!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The simplest functions may become more difficult than usual because of a misunderstanding that affects your overall timing. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A friend or family member may introduce you to something that becomes an ongoing fascination.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may renew an old relationship, thanks to an encounter with a third party who knows what's really going on. (March 6-March 20) -- You may falter once when others are expecting you to act with confidence. You will learn much about yourself as a result.
