The coming week will send many individuals off into altogether new directions, as the need for self-discovery increases and opportunities for quick learning and even quicker application of lessons learned will arise, as if from nowhere. Most will be ready to follow wherever those needs and opportunities may lead -- but not all! Those who are resistant to these changes can expect to encounter unanticipated difficulties, even in areas of daily life that were previously worry-free and offered smooth sailing. Indeed, routine may be anything but routine for those who are not able or willing to go where the winds of fortune may lead. Transformations of all kinds will be prevalent, especially where professional affairs intersect with one's personal life.
It is that intersection that may prove most important to a great many -- especially since such new directions can force the acceptance of that which is surprising or simply unwanted. Such accidents, however, may ultimately be quite valuable to those who know how to find the silver lining in a given cloud.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll be gathering more than information. Indeed, your store of personal resources may be richer right now than ever before.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- The first few days of the week will find you cleaning up after others, but this is so that you can have things the way you want them later on.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- It may be time for you to include someone else in your planning process. The pace is sure to speed up once this person is on your team. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll be aware of rumblings all around you that tell you things are not proceeding exactly according to plan. Keep your ear to the ground!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may discover that the personal reasons for doing a certain thing are trumped by other, more practical ones. You're on the right track!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- It may be time to man the battle stations in order to protect yourself and your family members from an insidious danger. Work together.
