The coming week will see a number of individuals going back in time -- or, at the very least, doing things that make it seem as if time is going backward, as they find themselves reliving past experiences or doing what they had thought they would never be doing again. But that's the lesson: "Never say never," goes the adage, and this week will surely prove it true! Those who fight against the strong currents leading them in retrograde motion will make things much more difficult for themselves than necessary, but those who are willing to go with the flow may find, when all is said and done, that valuable lessons -- and perhaps profit as well -- can be expected.
Arguments abound about issues that are front and center, and many will find themselves getting embroiled in conflict in ways they hadn't anticipated. This kind of tension will surely be something new for many -- and it will remind us all that this temporary journey into the past is merely illusory.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You mustn't argue with those who are calling the shots. Your turn will come, and you'll surely be ready. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll have a chance to claim victory when others expect you to come up short. You have more surprises than that one in store!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll want to pay particular attention to distances both short and long. Transportation issues may arise. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll want to see just how long you can keep a rival engaged in a one-on-one encounter. The longer it lasts, the better the outcome will be for you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your ability to take what comes and shape it to your own advantage will surely come in handy as you look both forward and back. (June 7-June 20) -- Others are buzzing about what is expected from you, but you know that it's likely to be only the beginning.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Pay particular attention to budgetary issues; as effective as it may be, what you do with your money will take some by surprise. (July 8-July 22) -- Others may warn you more than once to mind your own business, but you know how much your involvement is appreciated by a certain someone.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're ready to unveil a secret weapon of sorts, but you must use caution when the time comes. Keep allies safe. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You know just how to finesse yourself out of a tricky situation -- but you may only get the chance to do it once.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may cause some unanticipated reactions by doing what you had all but announced you'd do. Style counts for much. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You must remember that others are watching you -- and some are trying to do precisely what you are doing. Protect your investment.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll feel at home almost everywhere you go. Timing is an issue, but you can manipulate the clock just a little. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll want to keep in touch with someone who is able to help you avoid your darker moods. He or she wants to get a little closer, perhaps.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're ready to take advantage of what someone throws your way. All you have to do is patiently await its arrival. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A run-in with someone who supposedly has your number is likely to work out to your advantage. He or she will admit defeat in time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may feel as though a complete overhaul is necessary, when in fact, a more targeted approach is likely to do the trick. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're anticipating victory, but take care that you haven't adopted an overly cavalier attitude.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You've been working on the setup for some time; now you're ready to start arranging the payoff for yourself and your teammates. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have to dig deeper than usual into your bag of tricks in order to provide what the doctor ordered.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You will have to keep your eye on the ball all week long. Others will be doing all they can to distract you, but you must stay focused. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A minor bobble early in the week is likely to give the advantage to one of your competitors -- if only for a day or two.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're going to have to be ready for any opportunity as it arises. You have every reason to expect a positive outcome. (March 6-March 20) -- Others are concerned about you, but you can put them at ease by demonstrating how readily you can complete assigned tasks at home and at work.
