The coming week will require many individuals to prepare for what's in store in ways that are different from the norm, as many activities and endeavors will demand a heightened sense of responsibility, great stamina and the ability to handle more than one emergency at a time. Working closely with the calendar will prove quite important throughout the week. Adjustments will have to be made on the fly, but these cannot be effective without a sense of confidence where scheduling is concerned. It will be wise to bring to bear a comprehensive understanding of how every little thing affects everything else. A change here will bring about change there, and vice versa! One cannot expect events to transpire exactly according to the original plan, even though the original goals can and must be met!
There is likely to be a personal component to the week's activities that is sure to raise the stakes for many. Distance will play a part: Some will want to be closer than they are to loved ones, while others may find it necessary to be farther apart for reasons both practical and personal. There is no single right answer!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You don't want others to know what you are up to until you start raking in the rewards, but you mustn't be purposely deceitful. (April 5-April 19) -- A great deal rests on your shoulders, but it's nothing that you cannot bear with grace and style.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You must keep accurate records of all you do, including what you purchase and how much you spend. You may be asked to explain at some point. (May 6-May 20) -- The powers that be seem to be working against each other; perhaps this is your opportunity to assume more control.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be unusually resistant to appeals for fairness. It's not what's being sought, but who seeks it that bothers you. (June 7-June 20) -- Two very different motives are competing for dominance. You must decide which one you stand for and will support.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may find yourself facing a major challenge, but you're prepared to defend yourself in any likely forum. (July 8-July 22) -- How you say something is likely to be more important than what you say. Throughout the week, your critics will be studying your demeanor.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may realize as the week begins that someone has dropped the ball, but further examination proves that you are also somewhat to blame. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself on the outside looking in; how do you become more directly involved in matters that affect you and yours?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- There are some who have your back, surely, but your critics may speak with a much louder voice for a time. Be ready for anything! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may want to make the first move toward reconciling with someone with whom you've been on the outs for quite some time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You don't want to engage in a "he said, she said" conflict. Make sure that your encounter is based on substantive facts! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You have a decision to make, but timing and inconsistent circumstances may make this more difficult than usual.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may have to take some steps that you've already taken, but now there's bureaucratic red tape to cut through. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The rules you are following may not be conducive to your best work, but you can still keep the overall level relatively high.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A technical component to what you are attempting may complicate matters; you could benefit from the help of an expert. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- What you've been waiting for is about to transpire, but you cannot force the issue or make things happen prematurely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are eager to see things settle down a bit, either at home or in the workplace -- and each affects the other in its own way. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be seeking contentment in the wrong place or in the wrong way. You can adjust your thinking and come out feeling very good, indeed.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The earlier you get started on a major project, the sooner you'll be able to assess the likelihood of success. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- An idea needn't be entirely new for you to get excited about it. Even the most routine notion can lead to something fulfilling.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You've received a promise that you aren't sure will lead to what you most want. You may have to insist on something more. (March 6-March 20) -- Others may claim that you are working in a random, irresponsible fashion, but there is surely a method to your madness!
