The coming week will see the majority of individuals settling comfortably into a chosen routine, doing what is called for at the right times in the right ways and laying the groundwork for future success. The fact that such success may not be immediately possible should be of little concern, for it is what lies around the corner, not what is happening right now, that can prove most important in this regard. Next week's rewards are built on this week's gains, which are made bit by bit in a conscious, logical, linear fashion. Very few will be able to progress by doing things randomly, without following some carefully plotted course of action. There's little room for improvisation.
There are, of course, some who are in charge and some who are charged with doing what they are told. Both groups will discover that they owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the other, for neither can progress alone. It's teamwork of all kinds that wins results.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You can demonstrate a willingness to try almost anything. Such bravado will win you the admiration of a certain someone. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll want to be early, never late. If you can be in the vanguard, not the rear, you won't be denied!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can rely on routine to see you through when things get chaotic. When everything is in its place, you have the advantage. (May 6-May 20) -- You can expect to be interrupted several times, as many will want to know what you are up to and what it really means.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- While you don't want to be improvising, a certain amount of experimentation will be necessary before you hit on the right course. (June 7-June 20) -- Distractions abound, but you'll be able to get things done because you are working in your comfort zone.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The admiration you feel for someone who has shown you the ropes is likely to be returned to you doubly, much to your surprise. (July 8-July 22) -- Now is the time for you to set things down in writing, so that you are sure to remember key details when asked to recount them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're willing to do more than you had signed on for, but you don't want to find yourself in a wholly unfamiliar environment. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can learn much from someone who has walked a path similar to the one you're on. Pay attention to the little things.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're counting the days before you are able to free yourself of a certain restriction imposed some time ago. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Once you say yes, you're committed -- so be sure you can live with that before you respond to an unusual proposition.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not feel quite at home among those with whom you have much in common, even though you are working and playing at a high level. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You will be more aware of your surroundings than usual, especially in the darker corners that are usually overlooked.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Take your time, and don't let circumstances speed things up against your will. You must maintain constant control. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may not know whether someone is being wholly sincere with you until the weekend rolls around, at which time everything should be clear.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll have time to get certain details taken care of before someone throws you a curve and changes everything. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You'll want to give yourself a little extra time to do things that usually take minimal thought, for not everything is as it seems.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You don't want to find yourself wandering in unfamiliar or dangerous territory; stick to the path, and watch for landmarks. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You will have the chance to try something you've not tried before, and you'll have more than one opportunity to get it right.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The trust issues you've had with a certain someone are likely to evaporate, and the result is a very productive partnership. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Sharing a secret can propel you into uncharted territory with someone who is eager to know even more about you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Many will rely on you for more than mere know-how. The fact that you carry all the resources you need is surely a plus! (March 6-March 20) -- The gravitational pull exerted by someone who has his or her eye on you may seem irresistible, but you should only let it pull you so close.
