The coming week will see a great many individuals pursuing opportunities that were not anticipated or foreseen. Instead, these will be recognized in the moment, while everything is already progressing apace, under full sails. This means that the ability to react appropriately and effectively on the spot will prove to be the most valuable skill anyone can possibly possess, and those who are more adept at making their plans from a distance, at a slower pace, long ahead of time, will be at a distinct disadvantage. Both business endeavors and personal affairs will be affected directly by the impromptu nature of the week, and those who are facing difficult decisions in either arena must be ready to strike while the iron is hot -- and not wait for anything to cool down.
The experiences of those who have gone before, who have tried and failed and tried again, will certainly prove valuable to anyone who has much at stake. A knowledge of history -- ancient, modern or as recent as last week -- will surely prove valuable to all.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may have to follow new rules with regard to the dissemination and assimilation of information. Waste no time in this regard!
