The coming week will see many individuals taking advantage of opportunities that are entirely self-made. This puts such a person in the enviable position of being able to choose between two or more options that are equally beneficial, enjoyable and lucrative. "Many" is not "all," however, and the difference between those who do and do not prevail will be very simple. Those who are able to plan for the future will know what to do; their ability to visualize what is likely to happen and tailor their behavior accordingly is what makes the difference between success and failure -- it all begins with foresight. Indeed, fortunetelling may become a highly prized ability!
Those who are able to smooth out the bumps in the road will have another advantage, as they will be able to turn in the highest quality performance each and every day, achieving a level of consistency that is admired by others. It's not enough to think of a plan; one must also do it!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Despite your assertions, a rival may actually be doing much better than anyone has been able to tell. You have your work cut out for you. (April 5-April 19) -- You can engage in some energetic dialogue with someone who disagrees with you on tactics, but not on overall strategy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You want to upgrade your efforts, which will require you to learn a few new techniques -- and perhaps adopt a new overall plan. (May 6-May 20) -- You will be able to track cause and effect very clearly and avoid any serious negative developments.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be more likely than others to make the most of an unusual opportunity. Make no hasty decisions, however. (June 7-June 20) -- You can up the ante where a new friend is concerned. Very soon, you may find yourself involved in something much more serious.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll want to pay close attention to the developments resulting from a past decision. It may be too late to make changes. (July 8-July 22) -- Someone may accuse you of telling lies, but that's only because he or she doesn't want to hear the truth from your lips!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You aren't able to do everything well, but you can do many things far better than most. Don't get carried away, however! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A loved one is able to give you exactly what you have been hoping for. You both may have cause to celebrate as the weekend approaches.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- No one is likely to understand just what you are up to, and the time will surely come when you will have to explain yourself. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You must wait until certain tasks are completed before moving on to a new endeavor that you are eager to get underway.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You will want to keep your eyes on the prize and remember that it's not over until it's over. Seek weekend rewards! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- There is much that others can tell about you simply by looking at you, but only by talking with you at length can anyone know the real you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're likely to get your shot, and being ready will make all the difference. You're ahead -- but you must stay ahead! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be surprised by what comes at you at the hands of someone much younger. He or she has your number -- at least for now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- No one promised you "fair," but only a hard-fought contest. The table is set for you to do something memorable. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The difference will be in how you address the difficulties you encounter; you cannot avoid them, but you can neutralize them.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll find that you have to work harder to reap the usual results, but the current phase shouldn't last all that long. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be feeling stiff and out of sorts throughout much of the week. Trust a friend or partner to smooth the way for you as often as possible.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to go directly to the one who makes the decisions to find out what your role will be on the job. Get specifics! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble making a decision that will affect many in your care. A competition heats up between you and a rival.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may want to reach out to those who haven't responded favorably to you in the past. You have a chance to change some minds! (March 6-March 20) -- You're not likely to respond well when someone tries the same old tricks with you. You know just how to respond -- and when.
