The coming week will see many individuals doubling down on ideas, plans and proposals that, in the recent past, have met with opposition from others. They do this because to them, those ideas seem to be the best for the present time and circumstances. Challenges of all sorts should be expected -- not least of which will be those that arise from within. Confidence will be countered by insecurity and self-doubt. Everyone must dig deep to discover if he or she is actually doing the right thing, or if sheer stubbornness is paving the way forward. Tenacity can be a virtue, but not when underlying principals remain unexamined.
Policies and procedures will be in the spotlight throughout much of the week as individuals are tempted to do things in unconventional or unapproved ways. Those who go back to the basics, read up on what is required, and make a sincere effort to satisfy standard protocols are likely to enjoy the greatest success. There are methods in place to get things done!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may reach a critical point midweek that requires you to make one or two very quick decisions that will affect you for some time to come. (April 5-April 19) -- You're going to have to break the rules at some point simply to get around an obstacle that someone else has put in your path.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Someone is going to be much closer to you as the week comes to a close than he or she was when it started. Is this something you had planned? (May 6-May 20) -- Distance doesn't necessarily make the heart grow fonder, despite the adage. You must work to maintain a connection with that certain someone.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- A breakdown of communication early in the week cannot be blamed on anyone but you, but you know how to correct the error very quickly. (June 7-June 20) -- Someone far from home may reach out to you and change things with a few choice words. You've known this was going to happen for quite some time.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Style and elegance count for much, but whatever you do has got to come from the inside. You can't just paste it on. (July 8-July 22) -- Now is the time for you to open up to a loved one about what you really want -- and what you're afraid of. He or she can help you sort things out.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Facts and figures of all kinds will figure prominently throughout the week. It may be unusually important for you to remember people's names. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A sampling of various activities will give you a healthy perspective. Remember that you can choose not to do anything you don't like.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Travel is likely in the picture, but whether your destination is near or far will be determined by forces beyond your control. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A calculated risk on your part will yield a surprise. You'll find that you are able to progress more quickly as a result of your new standing.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may want to do more early in the week, leaving yourself some time to devote to personal issues later on. A friend will need you. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Everything should fall into place rather quickly as the week opens, but you'll have to work harder to keep things in order with each passing day.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The quicker the pace, the more likely you will be to make errors that cannot be corrected. Moderation is key in all things. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You will be able to see where you are going with greater clarity, and in greater detail, than in recent weeks. Confidence will surely increase as a result.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You've been making promises that you simply cannot keep, but most of those around you will see what is really going on and will understand. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A conflict may arise between you and a rival, but it needn't threaten your progress in any significant way. Indeed, you can use it to your advantage!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You've been putting the needs of others ahead of your own recently, which is admirable, but you must try to think of yourself. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have to scrap one set of plans in favor of another that doesn't suit you quite as well. You can make adjustments that improve the situation.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You've taken to doing something that doesn't seem to be quite "you" -- but you can do much to correct that overall impression. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A dangerous situation can be avoided altogether, provided you are willing to let someone else think he or she is in control.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may find yourself adjusting your schedule all week long, and quite possibly changing course several times as well. Stay alert! (March 6-March 20) -- The pull that a member of the opposite sex exerts may prove irresistible to you -- but not for reasons that make any sense. Study this situation carefully!
