The coming week will require many individuals to dig deep into their bags of tricks to come up with just the right thing to do under certain extraordinary circumstances that cannot be avoided. All will be using stores of energy heretofore overlooked, and many will have to employ a kind of inner resolve that is rarely tapped. Many realizations will be had, and many of these will have something to do with key relationships. Those who are already in love, for example, will find that the landscape is shifting and requires a new perspective. Those who are waiting for love to come calling may find that their heart's desire can soon be theirs, but only a change in behavior can make this so.
Promises will be made and broken; those who can get through the next seven days without any contrary leanings will find that they can surely be honest and faithful for the long haul; the most serious threats are sure to pass as this difficult time fades into memory. The "real thing" will start to feel very real, indeed.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're nearing a halfway point of sorts. Give someone all the help you can. Travel times may be longer than you think. (April 5-April 19) -- The clock is running, and you must be able to complete assigned tasks within the time allotted. Don't let yourself become distracted!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can make a real difference in the lives of those with whom you interact -- and direct interaction is always best! (May 6-May 20) -- You have several advantages, but they don't guarantee your victory. You're going to have to work hard, right down to the wire.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can persuade others that your plans are likely to win the desired results, but some may doubt they can do so in the time available. (June 7-June 20) -- You may not be feeling tip-top as the week opens. A little rest not only has you feeling better, but also lets you solidify plans.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may discover that not everyone is in agreement with you, and your most vocal critics may well have a valid argument. (July 8-July 22) -- What you say and how you say it will set the tone for the entire week. You'll want to spin certain topics in the most positive way possible.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may feel as though someone has robbed you of an opportunity as the week opens, but it will likely be restored to you before long. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Patience may be a virtue, but for you it can very well spell failure. You will want to take a more aggressive approach than usual.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're very much on top of your game, and many competitors will want to find a way to avoid a head-to-head contest. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can open many doors for yourself and others. You'll want to replace something lost with something found.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll want to be present and available for someone in need. Don't be too forward, but don't be too far in the background. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Certain feedback may surprise you. You'll have the chance to improve things from the inside out.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You've been waiting for the right time to act on a recent decision, but you may have to throw caution to the wind. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A good friend seems to know what you are going to do better than you do. He or she has prepared for this, but have you?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be searching for something that has been hidden for quite some time. Someone knows more than you do, so be sure to ask! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The perspective of a younger family member can be quite beneficial to you. You've been a stick in the mud long enough!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- A loved one is more than willing to tell you what you need to do, but it's better for you to determine your own course of action. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll discover something that has you changing a great many plans -- and, possibly, looking for a new place to live.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll hear things through the grapevine that have you reassessing your current position. Don't make any hasty changes, however! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Focus on what makes you happy, and you'll be able to rise above a certain fray and remain free of an entanglement.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- A wrong turn has you fretting about where you're going and when you may get there. You'll have to make a quick decision. (March 6-March 20) -- You haven't heard from a good friend in a while, so why not reach out yourself? You'll both be glad you did.
