The coming week will see the start of something big. The magnitude of its impact -- indeed, whether it will even exert any influence at all -- will be a matter for speculation day after day until, at last, the shoe drops. Only then will each individual see just how his or her life will be altered as the week comes to an end. Indeed, the changes that take place may be quite dramatic, and some will realize that they will never be the same again! Most, however, will discover to their great relief that despite these massive upheavals, they are able to hang on to the things that are most important to them: jobs, relationships, homes, money, freedom and daily creature comforts. For them, changes will still occur, but they will be subtle and will spring from within; external forces may have little or no direct effect on them.
Getting through the week will require a good deal of brainpower, especially on the part of those who tend to be misunderstood or misinterpreted more often than not. If you are a member of this club, it's important that you present yourself in a way that does not stymie comprehension: Your character and motives must be clear to all.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Approach all matters with care, especially where younger family members are involved. You don't want to set the wrong example. (April 5-April 19) -- You may be wondering why you have been put in your current predicament, but as usual you have a lesson or two to learn, and this is the only way. Face it squarely!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Others express concern or surprise when you head off in a new direction, but you may only be doing it to fool someone who's getting too close. (May 6-May 20) -- There's certainly a place for rest and relaxation, but you're going to have to earn it. It's time to address your most urgent needs.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You are eager to learn what someone else already knows, but such information may not be readily available. You'll want to know why. (June 7-June 20) -- You've been pushing yourself hard trying to maintain an unhealthy pace. You'll have the chance to slow things down and take stock -- if you want to.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The actions of another can inform your endeavors, provided you understand his or her motives completely. Avoid any kind of guesswork. (July 8-July 22) -- You may receive an offer that has you wondering if you are, indeed, in the right place and doing the right thing. Perhaps there's more for you somewhere else?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're not likely to get through the week entirely on your own, try as you might. The trail is fraught with danger, and you'll need guidance! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- An attachment to someone from your past will become strained as you try to break free from certain expectations. This is worth talking about!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be surprised by a development that takes a certain former mentor out of the picture entirely. You know how to continue moving forward. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Reports of your activities or whereabouts are likely to be wholly false -- and quite entertaining! You can set the record straight.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Any attempt to manipulate, fabricate or obfuscate your past record is sure to backfire on you. Play it all aboveboard. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can combine peaceful relaxation with periods of intense, animated activity -- and come out ahead of the competition, to boot! Keep it up!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- There's no time for you to do anything you hadn't planned on doing, but plenty of time for you to complete a normal assignment. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may have to explore here, there and everywhere to come up with what you need to address a tricky and quickly developing personal situation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A conflict may develop between you and a rival who thinks that doing the same thing actually serves a completely different purpose. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A little risk is no cause for you to go overboard in your future attempts to keep everything around you safe and sound. You must listen to reason!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You and a new friend need to discuss some issues that you may not have wanted to bring up, even in the recent past. Unveil the truth. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What you've heard about someone on the periphery of your experience will convince you to get a little closer -- but you may want to do so slowly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Someone looking over your shoulder may have you jumping to conclusions throughout the week -- and your decisions may be faulty as a result. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll want to study what others have done before you in order to determine the direction you should move. Much can be completed.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Despite your situation developing rather slowly, you can maintain the advantage by keeping your view trained forward. (March 6-March 20) -- By crossing your t's and dotting your i's, you'll take care of business in a way that is both effective and admirable. Not everyone can do the same.
