The coming week will erupt into something of a firestorm of activity -- some positive and some negative, but all of it wholly consuming to those who either choose to immerse themselves in what is going on, or who have no choice and must of necessity tackle what seems like too much to deal with. The mere facts that there are many dangers to be faced and that much of what is required may be more than anyone should have to handle at any one time needn't mean failure is imminent. On the contrary, many will enjoy tremendous success as they rise to the challenges presented at this time. What it does mean, however, is that because everyone's capabilities are limited, failure can be forgiven in the end -- and it needn't be accepted as permanent.
Loved ones must pay close attention to each other at this time, and not let the issues at hand -- valid and important as they may be -- distract from the personal necessities that still exist between those who enjoy bonds of love and intimacy. Indeed, knowing a loved one well can avoid future problems, as such issues can be spotted in plenty of time to do something about them!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You needn't look over your shoulder to see if the competition is gaining on you -- it is! Now is no time to slow down for any reason. (April 5-April 19) -- You can trust someone to tell you precisely what you need to hear -- whether or not it is what you actually want to hear. You know that the truth may hurt.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- All the warning signs are there, so you must be prepared for the onset of one of your darker moods. It's a good time to free up your schedule. (May 6-May 20) -- You're making a great many connections between the present and the past. By week's end, you'll understand something you never understood before.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Give yourself more of what you think you deserve; others will see you doing this and may decide that they can do the same. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll want others to give you clear instructions. You're in no position -- or condition -- to come up with a plan of action on your own.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're so used to doing so much by yourself, under any circumstances, that you may not be able to relax when given the opportunity. (July 8-July 22) -- The wheels will be turning each and every day, and you may need to demand a great deal from those who choose to maintain close ties with you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Just when you think you're ready and able to simplify, something comes along and demands that you become more involved. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Your ability to see danger approaching will surely come in handy, but on at least one day, your ability to avoid what you see may fail you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Physical symptoms may challenge you, but they shouldn't affect you so much that you are unable to fulfill assigned duties. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're not about to let anyone take control of a situation that you, by rights, should control. The truth is that only you know what is truly required!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're doing a job that is valued, surely -- but not by everyone equally. You needn't pay any attention to those who are not on board. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may discover that your ability to weather criticism is waning. Try not to do anything that may attract that kind of negative attention!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You know the rules, but you also know where you stand and what you have to gain -- and lose. This may be the week to bend those rules a bit. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Someone from afar is keeping you in his or her sights and giving you all the support you need right now. You'll want to repay this debt when you can.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may find yourself caught in a difficult situation toward midweek, but you can alleviate it somewhat by refusing to be led by your emotions. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Your decisions may set off alarms, as others have reason to think that you are not seeing things as you should. Perspective is everything!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are not the only one going through a difficult time, despite the feeling that no one else knows what you know. Talk about it! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Congratulations may be in order as the week comes to a close, but whether you are the one to be congratulated is uncertain. It's looking that way.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're feeling boxed in, so you are eager to assert your independence when given the chance. Avoid any sort of knee-jerk reaction. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- The quality of your work may come under review by those who have something else going on behind the scenes. It's up to you to point out anything unfair.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll be expected to do things a certain way. If you don't satisfy those expectations, you can expect a change to be made. (March 6-March 20) -- This week will be challenging on many fronts, but what goes on in your personal life can give you strength and provide you with the necessary inspiration.
