The coming week will see some facing down demons, some resurrecting angels and others dwelling in routine affairs that take on new meaning in their lives in unexpected ways. What this means is that events and circumstances are likely to seem quite special to those who are willing and able to see the extraordinary under a rock, over a hill, within a cloud high overhead or in the eyes of a friend or loved one, whether newfound or long-cherished. This week can be a defining time for a great many people, but there is daring involved; one must be willing to face the fears and dangers that come from within and threaten one's sense of purpose and propriety, before he or she can really embrace and enjoy what this unique time has to offer.
No matter how busy an individual may be, he or she must find time for love -- and the expression of love that has perhaps been long dormant. The simple words "I love you" can work wonders -- not just for the hearer, but for the speaker, who may have forgotten how essential that sentence -- and the feeling -- can be.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Someone close to you is likely to behave in a manner that doesn't truly reflect his or her ideals. You can suggest adjustments. (April 5-April 19) -- You are feeling rather emotional, and you may want to examine how this colors your actions before you lose control completely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Keep your eyes open and your ear to the ground. Pay attention to the signals that are being overlooked by others. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll be eager to get home -- or at least closer to home. Someone is waiting for you to re-establish contact.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The time you spend working quietly on your own can be quite valuable. You're in no mood for interruptions or distractions. (June 7-June 20) -- You're likely to find yourself swamped by memories of all kinds. A loved one points the way out of a threatening situation.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may not be able to keep your mind off of someone else's business. Why not try to make this a useful, productive reality? (July 8-July 22) -- You'll find yourself gravitating toward someone for reasons you don't fully understand. Why not simply let go and see what happens?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can provide invaluable assistance to someone who needs it to ready him- or herself for a trial that is fast approaching. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Travel may be in the offing, but you will have to narrow down your options before heading off into the sunset.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Time is of the essence -- not because there is too little of it, but because there is exactly enough. You know what to do. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Some may suspect that your behavior is being shaped by thoughts and feelings you don't fully understand. Listen to what they have to say.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Are you qualified to fulfill the responsibilities you've recently taken on? The truth will occur to you quite suddenly. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your excitement about a new opportunity may actually tell you something about yourself you didn't expect to learn.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may be far away from someone who is very much a part of your inner life. By all means, maintain open communication! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- It's easy to say that you are not affected by something you wish to avoid or ignore, but in reality it's very much a part of you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can restore order to a situation that has gotten out of hand recently. Others are willing to listen to you in a new way. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may have to do something you don't enjoy doing in order to get something you very much do enjoy. Such trade-offs are common.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are facing a certain inevitability, so avoid wallowing in any negative emotions that are unproductive and harmful. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll want to know who is taking your place. The information comes to you through unusual channels and takes you by surprise.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to play two roles that seem incongruous or even incompatible, but you'll find a way when your instincts kick in. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Everything you do or say will have far-reaching effects, and you must accept the fact that you may change someone's life.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- It's a good time to make an unusual proposal to someone. This is not news to you; you've been mulling it over for some time. (March 6-March 20) -- You have something that someone else wants, and this is likely to result in a protracted conflict. Try to keep it from getting out of hand.
