The coming week will put many individuals in the middle of things they do not understand, have never anticipated or are unprepared to deal with in any real or immediate fashion -- but that doesn't mean the week cannot be a positive one, worth remembering when all is said and done! Indeed, having to deal with the new, unexpected, difficult or simply time-sensitive will force each and every individual, even those merely watching from the sidelines, to dig a little deeper, try a little harder and ultimately be a little better for the effort -- and that's something that can last a lifetime! Being quick to react will count for much, and having the sense to know whether a task is complete or not will surely make the difference between success and failure.
Emotional currents may be stronger than usual, and some people may simply decide that it is not possible to balance the inner and the outer in an effective way -- but this would be an error. Indeed, it is essential that feelings and actions come together in a way that promotes progress and growth.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You need a little more emotional fuel, and you can get it from a source that is not usually available to you. (April 5-April 19) -- It's a good week to assert yourself in a way that doesn't put anyone else out. Plan ahead with care.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can recover from a physical or emotional injury very quickly -- provided, of course, that you tend to yourself properly. (May 6-May 20) -- You can surprise even those in your inner circle by doing something you've been planning for some time.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Quality control may prove to be an issue, but if you put yourself in charge, you'll be able to exert just the right amount of influence. (June 7-June 20) -- The time has finally come for you to get started with something that has been in the planning stages for quite a while.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may feel as though you have to be in three places at once, but two should suffice, and you could well make it happen! (July 8-July 22) -- You're in need of a little downtime after pouring your heart and soul into something that matters to many.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Whenever you find yourself at cross-purposes with someone else, you'll want to be the first to consider a harmonious adjustment. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Someone else's warning may be ringing in your ears as you approach a certain danger zone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be starting with a blank slate, but what better way to begin? It means that you can head in any direction you choose! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A certain concept may not make sense to you until you find yourself having to work with it directly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have only a certain prescribed amount of time to get something done, but you're prepared and ready to give it a go. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The arrival of someone unexpected makes everything go a little more slowly than usual until you make a certain adjustment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can learn much about someone else simply by listening to what he or she has to say. You actually have a lot in common. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be thrust into a situation that was not of your making, and which can be resolved only if you apply yourself 100 percent.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You don't want to reveal everything this week; keep some things under wraps until the suspense has built up sufficiently. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The powers that be are more in favor of what you bring to the table now than they have been in the past.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You will benefit much more than expected by expanding your own generosity and giving to others in any way you can. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A chance encounter affords you the opportunity to explore an issue usually brushed aside. Much is illuminated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be told again and again that a certain thing cannot or must not be done -- but you know better, and you can get it done with style. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You will want to stay in touch with those who are personally involved in your affairs even if you find yourself traveling far from home.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll be eager to hear what others think of your current efforts, but you mustn't take criticism too much to heart. Learn from it instead! (March 6-March 20) -- You'll enjoy a "blast from the past" that has you thinking that maybe a former project can be resurrected.
