The coming week will see a great many individuals opening their eyes to new revelations, challenges and opportunities of all kinds. It will be chock-full of good things that virtually everyone will want to pursue with vigor, though some may choose to hold back until the crowd has thinned a bit. From a vantage point far from Earth, the human race would seem to be just that -- a race, in which the stakes are high and everyone is charging for the finish line, confident of victory. What is different about this contest, however, is that there needn't be any losers -- only winners! Everyone can enjoy favorable odds and may discover that circumstances and conditions are just right for a personal victory of substantial significance.
This doesn't mean that nothing bad will befall anyone at all. The truth is that there are always dangers lurking out there, lying in wait for anyone who chooses to make decisions and behave in ways that are counter to his or her own best interests. Any one of us can come up short by choosing to be his or her own worst enemy!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You have the big picture clearly in mind, but it's the details that will make the difference between moderate and formidable success.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- It's essential that you practice what you preach. Any indication that you are being deceitful or two-faced will spark a revolt.
