The coming week will demand of many individuals greater diligence when it comes to addressing personal issues that should not wait. Many of those individuals have waited too long already to deal with such issues in a way that can promote progress and ultimately yield positive results. There are some who simply don't want to get embroiled in affairs that could prove complicated in the extreme, but waiting might easily complicate matters even further! Some may feel they will hurt someone's feelings if they say or do what they know must be said or done, but to carry on and ignore the elephant in the room is unfair in the extreme! And there are some who simply don't realize that they've been putting off the inevitable, and that it's time to bring about some kind of resolution at long last.
Some may have the feeling that ghosts are looking over their shoulders. Indeed, figures from the past are likely to figure prominently, and their influence will be felt in all areas. When it comes to personal affairs, they can help bring about changes that have long been sought by many.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may feel as though you are working against your best interests -- until a breakthrough allows you to make key changes. (April 5-April 19) -- You can combine your resources with those of another who is just as eager as you are to see things come out a certain way. Coordinate your efforts.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You have much to do, but one accomplishment will shine more brightly than any other when you look back and assess the week's events. (May 6-May 20) -- Progress and stasis hang in a very delicate balance. Trying to force the pace could push everything the wrong way for a while. Use a light touch!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The view you enjoy from where you stand gives you the advantage, as you can anticipate coming hazards with greater accuracy. (June 7-June 20) -- You are responsible for more than your immediate affairs. Young and old will be rallying around you to receive assistance and comfort.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You haven't always believed that honesty is the best policy, but now you can see no way around saying what you know must at last be said.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may recently have dropped hints that someone else considers promises. You must work out all the details and settle this. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can enjoy all that a golden oldie has to offer, either personally or professionally. A friend will steer you in the right direction.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- It's time to recognize that things are not as they used to be between you and someone you once considered a friend.
