The coming week will see the stars align in such a way as to promote the confluence of ideas and plans, theories and practicalities, ability and opportunity, and to give priority to expertise and know-how. This, in turn, will make it possible for many things to begin to come to fruition after having been in the works for a long while. Those who are at the helm of important projects will find that the harder they work, the more they will enjoy opportunities that arise -- and the more accolades they are likely to receive. It's not the case that material rewards should be expected -- but such things are ultimately less important than what a good job can do for one's reputation.
Indeed, reputation itself may prove to be a most important personal asset under these stars. While there is much that one can do to build up a reputation, there are a few threats to it as well, which are best avoided if at all possible. A tarnished name can prove quite expensive.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may feel as though someone is turning a very serious endeavor into too much of a game. You needn't play along, of course! (April 5-April 19) -- You may have to call in an expert to solve a problem that has been growing for some time. Have you waited too long to address it?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Mind, body and soul are sure to get the nourishment they require, and you needn't do anything unusual to make this happen. (May 6-May 20) -- You're eager to see what someone in your care comes up with in answer to a recent challenge. The week offers many rare opportunities, perhaps.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may discover that someone else wants something from you that you are unable to give. Your reasons are personal. (June 7-June 20) -- It's a good week to go exploring, but you should do your best to avoid dangerous territory. Don't stray from your chosen path!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can prove your native ingenuity by doing something old-fashioned in a completely new way. You're inspired! (July 8-July 22) -- You must be ready to hit the ground running. You may not enjoy any sort of prep time before you head off in the desired direction.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're going to have to use every bit of knowledge you've amassed over the years in order to pull off the impossible. (Aug. 8-Aug 22) -- Others may think you're in over your head, but in the final analysis, you'll be able to demonstrate more than proficiency.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're showing signs of change, and this is likely the result of natural growth rather than any conscious effort. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're thinking too much about what might have been, and not enough about what can be. Focus on what is right in front of you!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- There's no reason to think that you cannot do exactly what you've said you'll do. All it will take is a little extra willpower. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be showered with praise at some point, but you'll still feel as though you haven't achieved what you set out to achieve.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Others may be eager to join you in your efforts, but you're not in the mood to work with others -- or to share your success. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Perhaps you simply cannot lend a helping hand to someone. If this is true, you must try to stay out of the way entirely!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be sending the wrong message to others with behavior that isn't quite as exemplary as you might think. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may want to change your plans to be in accordance with some new rules of which you have only recently become aware.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be giving others precisely what they want, but are you giving enough thought to your own needs? (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You needn't be a whirlwind of activity in order to give another individual the support he or she is looking for.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may find the week's work unusually stressful, but this doesn't have to diminish your enjoyment in any significant way. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll find yourself traveling here and there, lending your experience and labor to a good cause that you've only recently embraced.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll want to know what is going on all around you, as you are confident that only in this way can you fit in properly. (March 6-March 20) -- You are making certain assumptions that may be not only inaccurate, but also dangerous. Focus on what you can prove.
