The coming week will offer a disproportionate number of opportunities to a very few individuals, while the rest must be satisfied with only a promise of things to come. There is little that anyone can do at this time to ensure that he or she is a member of the former group and not the latter; much depends on seeds sown long ago. Of those who are in the waiting group, the knowledge that it will be a finite period of time may be of some comfort -- though it won't make the waiting any easier, as the anticipated improvements will add such depth and richness to their personal affairs that it may seem impossible to progress without them. Still, those who consider themselves less fortunate than others will eventually have a chance at redemption and happiness -- perhaps sooner than expected, and in ways never imagined.
Matters of policy may come to the fore as those who are most involved in business affairs work to strike workable compromises where only last week there was an insurmountable deadlock. Indeed, only through changes in the status quo can real progress be made -- and that will surely require a balanced give-and-take.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Give yourself a little more leeway than usual, and you may stumble upon something that can be a major long-term benefit. (April 5-April 19) -- Work you do on your own can prove far more effective and lasting than what you do as part of a team -- though teamwork is still essential.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Quality control is likely to be a major branch of your overall intent, as only you can make things right in the time allowed. (May 6-May 20) -- The way you express yourself matters more than the content of your various messages. Still, you must always mean what you say!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- As you take in your surroundings, you'll want to judge the impact they may have on what you are trying to accomplish. (June 7-June 20) -- A message to a loved one will go astray, and you will have to scramble to be sure that your intentions are known. Technical redundancy can surely help.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll want to be sure that you have more than enough of what you need immediately at your disposal. Don't squander resources! (July 8-July 22) -- You will want to keep the lines of communication open between yourself and a rival, as you soon may be working together!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can improve the situation at home by granting a family member a little more autonomy -- though you'll want to keep your eyes open. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- What happens early in the week is likely to meet with your approval, but later on your expectations may be dashed in an unusual way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- A loved one will be able to get more out of you than you had anticipated, and he or she won't have to do anything unusual. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your response to someone who has lashed out at you inexplicably can make things better or worse, depending on how you want it all to play out.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- The obvious plays a key role in your week. What you see and hear is likely to mean precisely what you think it means -- until it doesn't! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Give someone a little bit of what you so desperately want, and you'll forge a new kind of partnership that can benefit you both for quite some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may think that you're nearing the end of the line, but in fact you have miles to go before you sleep -- and others eagerly wait for you. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Something that seems to appear out of the blue will turn out to be significant for quite some time. It is actually a product of a long evolution.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You seem to think that you have all the answers just because your every move seems to get the job done, but things may change. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Self-love must win out over self-neglect -- though you are not usually prone to such seemingly self-centered thought or behavior.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Someone has you in his or her sights, and it will take everything you've got to escape any attempts to reel you in. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Those who gravitate toward you are doing so in spite of themselves, and you must keep this in mind as you begin working for or against them.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Caution is advised, as you are facing certain dangers that you could not possibly have anticipated even a week or two ago. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A message you recently sent comes back to you unread, so to speak -- but does that mean your intent hasn't gotten through loud and clear? You must wait and see.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- An attempt at courtesy early in the week may be misinterpreted, resulting in an unexpected difficulty that you must overcome. (March 6-March 20) -- What you do for another can help you in a general sense, as your overall outlook will improve. Others are eager to make your acquaintance.
