The coming week will present numerous situations that seem, to those centrally involved, to require the kinds of all-or-nothing decisions that result from ultimatums. Indeed, there are some who may feel trapped by circumstances into facing difficult choices that must be made before the week is out. A perfect storm of unusual and unexpected developments is at play, and many will feel their effects in ways that are both conscious and unconscious -- a strange sense that something is not quite right is likely to prevail. What that something is may not be known for quite some time, but all will have to deal with it in some way -- by guessing, experimenting and trusting one's instincts, as well as by leaning on experience. It's not going to be an easy week!
Some will find that they are right where they want to be, despite any difficult decision-making that is required. Indeed, these individuals will be lucky enough to know that once a particularly hard choice is made, the road ahead will be much smoother -- both personally and professionally.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- While you are usually quite businesslike, this week you're likely to opt for a more freeform approach to key dealings. (April 5-April 19) -- You will get the support you need, but from a highly unusual source. That ultimately doesn't matter; it's the help that counts!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You needn't be secretive when it comes to your desires. Share them with those around you, and someone may help you satisfy them. (May 6-May 20) -- You're yearning for something that has been kept from you for quite some time. The odds that you will get what you want have improved considerably.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be overcomplicating an issue that is, at the core, very simple. A friend will be able to help you streamline your efforts. (June 7-June 20) -- Those who gravitate toward you will have much to offer, both personally and professionally. You'll want to give them some creative latitude.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You are looking at things from the most stable and clear vantage point, but perhaps this isn't enabling you to recognize creative potential. (July 8-July 22) -- Once you take a deep breath and begin moving in a certain direction, you'll find that all sorts of variables fall into place just as you had hoped.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Combine your dreams and aspirations with those of a friend, and the two of you can achieve something that no one else has imagined. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to progress at the rate you had anticipated, but right now any measurable forward motion is worth the effort. Don't change course just yet!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You are striving for peak efficiency, but there are circumstances at play that may prevent you from getting there just yet. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- What you say and do will be watched closely by those who have some kind of stake in backroom negotiations to which you are an indirect contributor.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You are not in a position to make demands of others, nor should you have to do what others tell you to do every step of the way. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You are in a much more adventurous mood than usual, but you must take care that this doesn't cause you to sacrifice all caution!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You'll enjoy just a bit more personal freedom than usual, and that's all it will take for you to make a dream come true. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A loved one may react to your decisions in a wholly selfish manner, and it will take time for you to convince him or her that all will be well.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- News you receive as the week opens will inform what you do and say as the days pass -- leading to an important announcement at week's end. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are not doing what is in your best interest as much as doing what will satisfy someone else's greed. It's time to give yourself more of what you need!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to fight harder than usual to keep your emotions in check. A heavy workload and fatigue are conspiring against you. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can combine your wants and needs into a neat little package that has you feeling much luckier -- and more accomplished -- than the competition.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may feel as though a loved one has put you in a position you simply cannot navigate successfully -- but "impossible" is only a word! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Much depends on your ability to recognize opportunities as they arise -- before they are upon you! Things will move at a very quick pace.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may feel as though you are farther from home than usual. Is this because you must travel, or because you want to? (March 6-March 20) -- You can combine business and pleasure in a way that takes others completely by surprise. They may soon be copying your every move!
