The coming week will require the majority of individuals to commune more deeply and in greater detail with certain friends, loved ones or business partners to maximize the odds of success and keep things moving forward at a pace that can produce measurable gains. In cases where the established relationship is strained, the work can become rather tempestuous -- cool heads may not always prevail! In other situations, those who have had little to say in the past may come up with just the right idea at the right time, providing everyone involved with an outlet for creativity, productivity and satisfaction. All must be warned, however: Too much attention paid to the purse strings will skew efforts and make real success a difficult thing to achieve.
At times, someone else does indeed know more and can illuminate the difficult issues to make them more accessible and solvable. Those who are able to acknowledge this, at the right times and in the right places, will have the advantage. One doesn't have to be in charge in order to win!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Don't be bashful; feel free to envelop another in the warm embrace of your better angels. Things go deeper than you expect. (April 5-April 19) -- Now is not the time to follow in another's footsteps, even if you've been told you should. The pathway you forge for yourself is best.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may become quickly disenchanted with things as you have arranged them, but you are allowed to make any changes you desire. (May 6-May 20) -- The tangled web you've woven over the past few days or weeks can only be undone by someone who knows you better than you know yourself, and you have an idea who this is!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Avoid any cursory appreciation of that which you proclaim to enjoy. Feel free to savor what comes your way, in any way you like. (June 7-June 20) -- A friend or loved one may be unusually combative as the week opens, but your honest, gentle approach proves beneficial to all who encounter him or her.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Someone is attempting to see through you in some way, and you'll be aware of his or her constant, penetrating gaze -- be it literal or figurative. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll have the opportunity to eliminate virtually all negative expressions from your lexicon, so positive is the overall outlook.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Are you sure the time is right for you to resume what you interrupted for the sake of another? He or she may not be fully integrated. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Examine closely the gap between where you are and where you wish to be. Make no assumptions about what you should or should not do!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You are curious about the origin of certain deep-seated feelings or fears, but are you ready to take an honest look at catalytic events? (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Another's apparent faults are not likely to seem so severe when chewed, swallowed and digested. You must be fair when all is said and done.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Your intellectual dexterity will be on full display throughout a week that offers you all manner of compelling options for study. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Things that were fluid and changeable only days ago may be solidified, but it will take a certain amount of persuasion on your part.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Get rid of all the extraneous baggage you've been carrying lately. You'll want to be emotionally streamlined and efficient right now. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You are risking a great deal by letting a certain native ability go to seed. You must be willing to tend it with consistent care and interest.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may sense that someone close to you is trying to burrow into places that you don't let anyone see -- much less touch. Protect yourself. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Others will be willing to listen to your manifesto at some point, but are they going to be supportive or critical of your primary stance?
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- An unexpected revelation may have you rethinking a current relationship. You've known things were not where you'd like them to be; now you know why. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- It's a good week to consider taking a path that will allow you to explore a talent you've ignored for too long. After all, talents do not expire!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Beware the emotional undertow that threatens to pull you back to another time when things were not as favorable as they are now! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- If it's redemption you're after, you may surely have it -- but only if you're willing and able to look at yourself through an unclouded lens.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your position will afford you a more inclusive, panoramic view of what lies ahead. This can be helpful to others, as well. (March 6-March 20) -- It's time once more to think outside the box. Your native creativity is something that others will want to take advantage of in unusual ways.
