The coming week will require many individuals to make do in the absence of conditions that are more favorable to progress, or with a shortage of tools and resources that are indispensable to getting the job done -- whatever that job may be. Much that transpires will be of a mundane nature, and most will be quite used to the responsibilities and tasks that require attention; the difference, of course, is that many will have to use a much more creative approach than usual in order to get even the most routine things done. A strategy that has done the job in the past isn't likely to work this week -- if that approach can even be taken in the first place! The most successful individuals will be those who can work at any hour of any day, using whatever tools they can find, wherever they may be.
There are some who will find that conditions that are unfavorable to good work for others are just right for them -- such people are surely to be considered the lucky ones! If you are one of these, you will provide your own light in the darkness and be able to shine brightly when others are groping around blindly -- a distinct advantage, indeed!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Repetition affords you the opportunity to get very comfortable with a certain task that did not come easily at first. (April 5-April 19) -- Those in your care will be concerned about your apparent lack of focus early in the week, but much can be done!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can get routine tasks completed in record time as the week opens, leaving you available for something new that comes your way later on. (May 6-May 20) -- You can save a great deal of money if you simply make one small adjustment to your perspective -- and your expectations.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- There's got to be a way to get where you want to go without emptying your bank account completely. Consider taking an alternate route. (June 7-June 20) -- A blast from the past has you wishing that things could be that way again -- but as the week closes, you'll be looking forward once more.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Someone is driving you in a direction you may not want to go; make it clear what you are trying to do, and why. (July 8-July 22) -- The week's events can have a lasting effect, and they will be better for you than much that has happened in the recent past.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A loved one is willing to give something new a try, provided you will be leading the way. He or she trusts you implicitly. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Someone close to you is suggesting a course of action you may balk at initially, but careful consideration reveals certain key benefits.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You mustn't let another's moods control you; though he or she may be quite variable, you can be constant and stay the course. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may remember a time when things seemed much easier, but you can still enjoy a boost in the present that really sends you on your way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're experiencing a new level of commitment -- either at work or at home -- from which everyone you encounter is likely to benefit. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The story you tell someone must be founded in the truth, or it will fall apart and reveal you to be nothing more than another charlatan.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may feel as though you have done these things and seen these places before. You're not repeating yourself, however. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll certainly find a good reason to dig deeper for the answers you need. However, this information comes at a premium.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're not likely to respond as hoped to someone who is trying to engage you in a new way. You may want to go it alone. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You needn't try to explain yourself; let your actions speak for you. And by all means, get out of your own way!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll find comfort in something that is familiar to you. You can't linger forever, but you'll enjoy it for quite a while. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The trick is not about determining what you should say, but in deciding what you can keep to yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You have been away from a loved one for long enough, and you'll see a good opportunity to close the gap at last. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Once you give a rival the chance to catch up, you'll have your hands full. Do what you can to maintain the lead!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may find that last week's omission requires attention this week; what you left undone then must surely be completed now. (March 6-March 20) -- You can follow the adventures of a close friend with great interest. He or she will appreciate your keeping in touch.
