The coming week will see many individuals exploring their creativity in situations that require unconventional thinking and a willingness to do what may be considered quite radical -- at least in theory, if not in practice. Many will be working to erase the negative effects of mistakes made in the recent past, and most will succeed. Some may find, however, that it is impossible to put the past behind them completely -- and this will be the catalyst for making new plans and taking certain actions that may not have been taken before. Indeed, it may seem to some that there is a need for an escape of sorts -- from oppressive circumstances, from errant planning, from the judgment of others or from situations that simply must not be allowed to continue.
Ultimately, the week may well be remembered for propelling individuals into the future with a brighter overall outlook -- the result, of course, of hitting on solutions to problems that are not only creative, but permanent. Success may be only incremental on one hand, but on the other, it can last a long, long time.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Efficiency is the key to a successful week. You'll want to be sure that everything you do contributes directly to your overall plan. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll be aware of others in your vicinity, but their proximity needn't have a negative impact on your own work.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to come up with an entirely new schedule for yourself -- one that you can live with over the long haul. (May 6-May 20) -- Others are gravitating toward you because of your no-fault attitude and ability to laugh in the face of adversity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Are you ready to address a certain issue to which you have turned a blind eye for too long? There's really no excuse! (June 7-June 20) -- You must -- and will -- fulfill all your obligations. Your own personal needs must come second.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- A decision early in the week has far-reaching ramifications, but you might not be fully aware of this. Use common sense. (July 8-July 22) -- You're likely to be far more important to another's success than you know. Just being there has a positive impact overall.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Though your presence may not be necessary, you'll have a long-distance impact on something going on far from home. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- What you know and what you think you know may become intertwined to the point that reality takes on an unusual guise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Agreement isn't necessary at all times, but it is important that you be civil even when faced with objections that seem to come out of nowhere. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're coming to the end of a situation that must, of course, come to an end -- though you will surely miss it!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A chain of events leads you to a decision point that requires more self-awareness than you have used in recent weeks -- or even months. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You must keep up with events as they happen, without trying to control them in any overt, unnatural way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The week may offer a mixed bag of opportunities and setbacks, but you're able to address them in ways that maximize gains. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Relatives and loved ones are ready to rally around you in support of a plan you've been formulating for quite some time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Your battle is admirable, but you must also be sure that the substance of your efforts is well-thought-out and supported. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You mustn't try to do anything entirely on your own; you're not living in a vacuum, and others are surely affected.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- As you check off your to-do list, you'll be adding certain pieces of detail work that prolong a certain project. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Your promise of low stress and maximum rewards can certainly be fulfilled. It all depends on attitude and preparedness.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Take care that you're not getting into something you cannot understand or control. It mustn't be allowed to get away from you! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A creative endeavor allows you to see things from another's point of view for a while. A new phase is beginning.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You don't want things to become too competitive; go about your business in a manner that promotes cooperation rather than rivalry. (March 6-March 20) -- A breakdown in communication may threaten much that you are working on, but it needn't have a lasting effect.
