The coming week will be the "week of the missive," as messages of all sorts are sent and received, carrying warnings, invitations, requests, approvals, denials and all manner of information, both wanted and unwanted. What is contained in all these messages, whether expected or unexpected, will be quite valuable at some point, either immediately or further down the road. Everyone will want to pay attention to them as they arrive and spend some time and energy making sure that those they send are well-written, well-meaning and reliable, especially where expressions of deep feeling are concerned. Indeed, the love note may make a comeback, as currents of affection run deep and many choose to write of them.
Longstanding relationships of all sorts may seem to take a back seat to those that are new or in the formative stages. It's important that no one make any irreversible decisions that will affect themselves or their loved ones on a long-term basis. Patience is a virtue!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're not likely to end the week in the position you are in as it starts. Whether you see this as good or bad depends on your attitude. (April 5-April 19) -- You may find that others are unable to avoid talking about you. Some of what you hear is patently untrue!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You needn't distract yourself with busywork; what you do must go to the heart of the matter and yield lasting results. (May 6-May 20) -- You may have to pass the time in a way that doesn't really satisfy your need to be of service to others.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- How you manage your time will say much about you. Others will surely react in ways that can be to your benefit. (June 7-June 20) -- You may not understand what someone is trying to tell you at first, but the more you communicate, the clearer things become.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may be eager to stake your claim to something for which you have been waiting a long time. No one is likely to object. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll spend a great deal of time organizing and reorganizing. You may uncover an important message.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll want to get certain responsibilities out of the way early in the week, leaving time for endeavors you enjoy much more. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A friend invites you to accompany him or her on a journey of discovery. It may be unclear what your role really is.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- How you present yourself is even more important than how you present your ideas. You certainly want to be taken seriously, yes? (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may be called upon to step into a role that was not created for you, but you can acquit yourself well and enjoy yourself, too!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not care which duties you tend to first, but which ones you tend to last may actually prove quite important. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You must be prepared for something to take much longer than expected. You'll find it necessary to reschedule certain appointments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- A head-to-head competition heats up, and you'll find that stamina is perhaps even more important now than it ever was. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to be reunited with someone who, in the past, has proven quite inspirational to you. He or she may be again.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll be the focus of some rather critical attention throughout the week, but you can come through it unscathed. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Others will praise you for your ability to remain cool under pressure, but you know that it's really only an act; you may be quite nervous, in fact!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Pulling things into clearer focus will take more time and energy than expected -- especially where friends are concerned. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You're not likely to see things the way others do; this can be both an advantage and a liability.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Take care that what you say and do are in sync with what you write. You may find that you have entered into a binding contract. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You must take time when putting together your list of grievances; you want to be heard and understood.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're likely to give someone else the reason he or she has been looking for to do something that is not in the rulebook. (March 6-March 20) -- Make no mistake: Recreational endeavors can also provide you with important professional opportunities!
