The coming week will see a great many individuals approach a crossroads of sorts, preparing to make an important transition of some kind -- be it personal, professional or a combination of the two. It may be vast and monumental for some, or small and subtle, but in either event, the need to understand the reasons for it and the ramifications of it is absolute. In the case of professional change, there is likely a timetable to be observed in moving from one opportunity to the next -- or, in some cases, one job to another. Where personal shifts are concerned, the movement may be more fluid and improvisational, and the need to do certain things at certain times may not be absolute. In all cases, eagerness can make all the difference.
Money matters are likely to figure prominently, as no one will be able to do all that is required without proper funding -- whether pennies, dollars or even entire fortunes are at play. Economizing will be the order of the day for almost everyone; overspending can stop anyone in his or her tracks.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll want to hold off on any celebrations until you are sure you have made the progress you expected to make. (April 5-April 19) -- Stepping from one thing to the next may bring you in contact with a formidable obstacle of your own making. Use care at all times.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may still be waiting for news from someone who is nominally in charge. This week, you will likely discover that you have another option. (May 6-May 20) -- Someone who has your best interests at heart may not be doing what you expect. Be patient, as he or she knows what you need right now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your status should remain unchanged throughout the week. Any uncertainty that you feel will not be noticed by others. (June 7-June 20) -- You may have to put up with a certain interruption more than once. You can remain calm here and in other things as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may find yourself traveling farther afield than you had originally planned. Take all necessary precautions. (July 8-July 22) -- What others are asking of you may not be possible, at least not the way it's been imagined. You can suggest changes to the plan.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Fortune may seem to dictate one thing, but you suspect that a little manipulation can turn things in another direction. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A situation develops quickly that requires a heightened sense of propriety from you and all involved -- though you must take the lead.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Work done by others can inspire you to achieve more than you had planned. Someone in particular offers you an unusual option. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You have choices to make, but always remember that your overall assignment will almost certainly remain constant.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have no choice but to put yourself in danger in order to accomplish a certain task that is next on the list. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may not be able to continue along your current path due to unforeseen circumstances that affect you on the home front.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're likely to realize that someone else's motives are not what you thought they were. You benefit from this altered view! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You will have reason to cry foul on at least one occasion. You may have to explain your position to more than one judge.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can afford to treat yourself a little better than you have in the past, but you must still avoid any overindulgence. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're on the verge of making a choice that others would call extravagant. Can you really afford to do what you have planned?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You want something to mean more, and this may lead you on a journey of discovery that takes you into new and exciting territory. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The choices you make will affect those around you in ways you may not be able to see at first. Take precautions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- There is such a thing as being too careful. You'll want to avoid limiting your reach in such a way. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You can only come out on top by formulating a plan and insisting that everyone follow in your footsteps for as long as possible.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The doubts you may harbor about a certain course of action are natural, but they may also hold you back when a bold approach is required. (March 6-March 20) -- You can get much done in the time you have, but eventually you will have to set aside that pet project for a while.
