The coming week will give a certain small percentage of individuals precisely what they want. That alone is likely to throw everyone else into a kind of frenzy of yearning, leading some to pursue their heart's desire with new resolve, while compelling others to go after what others already have and driving even a few to stoop to illicit means to come out ahead. The result of all this activity will surely be heightened emotions, conflicting perspectives and, in some cases, uneasy thoughts that haunt the minds of those who sense that something is in some way not quite right as the world moves ahead. In a precious few cases, individuals will be able to rise above the fray and see things the way they really are; these are the ones who can lasso the moon if they so desire.
Those who, as a result of luck or stellar design or good old-fashioned hard work, find themselves sitting pretty all week long will have reason to help those who are less fortunate. They are likely to find that helping others is a way to help themselves in a way that can be truly lasting and valued by all.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're not likely to think about the ordinary very much at all until someone turns it into something extraordinary. (April 5-April 19) -- Avoid the artificial -- in what you think, say, do and eat. The more organic your processes, the more likely you will be to rise to the top.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- All it takes is once. As soon as you get that one time out of the way, you can move on to something more important and lasting. (May 6-May 20) -- Despite the fact that the desire to heal is universal -- and the need for it is obvious -- you seem to resist taking a step that can start the process.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Let a certain someone call the shots, and you'll feel that you've put yourself in very good hands. Don't wait. (June 7-June 20) -- You're able to interpret messages and decipher signs with remarkable accuracy. For the most part, it's purely instinctive.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may find yourself arguing against the idea that what you are after is largely obsolete, and you'll have proof by week's end. (July 8-July 22) -- You'll want to ask yourself how safe you really feel as the week opens, and you'll work all week long to ensure that the answer for you and others is "perfectly."
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Though you may get a cool reception early in the week, later on you'll enjoy a much warmer climate among those who support you openly. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll have the chance to restate your position in terms that more people will understand. Events will take an unexpected turn as the weekend approaches.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Though someone insists that his or her recent activities have all been legit, you can shed light on some issues that are worth investigating. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You'll need to steer clear of not only the appearance of conflict, but outright conflict itself. This can be done if you confess certain faults.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- It may be time for you to mount your own investigation of certain deals to which you have not been a party, but that affect you directly. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Now is no time for plagiarism of any kind. Such copycat behavior, if discovered, can put your reputation in danger for quite some time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may choose to revisit a certain small portion of your past. If you do, you must equip yourself with the right emotional tools. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Are you fully prepared for what is likely to come your way? You've seen the signs, and now it's time to gather your resources.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You don't want to start a new, major project with a skeleton crew. Be sure that you have everyone in place to do the necessary jobs. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The moment you report for duty, the week will assume greater importance than expected. The work you do will affect many, both directly and indirectly.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may receive news that sends you off in a new direction. Later on, you'll feel more comfortable with where you're going. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You will want to take precautions to be sure that no one is able to overtake you as you stake your claim to something you feel you deserve.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A family situation that has been evolving for a long time now will reach the point where it is worrisome to you. It's time to act. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A collaboration begun not long ago will start to yield results both expected and unexpected. There are already some loose ends to be tied up.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to track down someone who has all the answers -- or at least one or two that you most need. Are your questions up to date? (March 6-March 20) -- Someone is straining a certain relationship with expectations that are not, according to some, "part of the deal." An explanation can calm some nerves.
