The coming week will require of many the ability to juggle various activities and endeavors, whether familiar or brand new, while looking ahead to what is in store in the coming days or weeks. This is no mean feat, and not everyone will feel comfortable doing all that must be done simultaneously. Indeed, some will feel a bit like circus animals in training, being asked to perform in ways they feel wholly unsuited and unprepared for, with expectations mounting at every turn. What's the secret to surviving such a week -- and even making a success of it? Simplicity! Though there may be much to do, and all at once, the streamlined approach -- with simpler techniques and tactics -- will allow one to navigate a complicated course with confidence, while avoiding becoming exhausted or overwhelmed.
Some may have the opportunity to step in and do things on a new, higher level, with a chance to impress those who have the power to provide a boost, either personally or professionally. It is within the professional arena, however, that the greatest opportunities lie hidden, waiting to be uncovered.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Someone you've known for a while will affect you from afar quite strongly, though indirectly. You may want to get in touch. (April 5-April 19) -- It's hard for you not to feel what a certain someone is feeling, but you must do your best to remain strong as you provide the help he or she needs.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll surely have the advantage all week if you just remember to keep people guessing at least some of the time. Don't reveal everything! (May 6-May 20) -- A reunion will have you making new plans. A loved one may intervene when things become dicey, and you'll know who really has your back.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You don't want to miss any goings-on that might affect you even a little. Pay particular attention to unscheduled developments. (June 7-June 20) -- Given what others have told you, you're not sure you can proceed as planned, but it's possible you've received some inaccurate information.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Disagreements needn't lead to the cessation of work, but rather to its continuation, when new ideas arise during open discussions. (July 8-July 22) -- You must pay attention to what a rival is doing, because you will then know what is possible or impossible for you when your turn comes.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- With the addition of a particular teammate, you can see the path to success laid out clearly before you. It's up to you to lead. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Former troubles may come back to haunt you, but that's no reason to give up on a plan you've worked so hard to put in place. Keep looking forward.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Your to-do list may be longer than expected, but if you start slowly, you can work your way up to a pace that accommodates all your needs. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Saying a thing is so doesn't make it so. You've got to back up what you say with hard evidence. Things may take a little time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- There are some who will come after you if you continue along your present course, but you know what you have to do in response. Be ready! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- A fabrication will send you in the wrong direction, but you'll soon receive information that can set everything right. You will recover.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You've been pushing your agenda for a while now, and still you're being met with opposition. Perhaps it's time for a personal assessment. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- What happens as the week opens can be quickly forgotten by some, but you understand that it will affect what you do -- and why -- for a while to come.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have to work hard to fight against the rumors that are swirling around you. You'll stumble on a solution when a friend shows up. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can benefit greatly from any sort of social outing, but an excursion with a certain loved one will help you pave the way for the future.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Others are waiting for you to make decisions that are required before they can swing into action. Do you have all the info you need? (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Examining your personal history will give you a new perspective. This, in turn, allows you to free yourself from certain self-imposed restrictions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You've been trying to negotiate with someone for quite some time, but you still cannot find common ground. A discovery waits to be made. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Focus on specifics, and you'll find that the big picture takes care of itself. Someone who has criticized you in the past will finally fade from view.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- They say that patience is a virtue, but from where you're standing, it looks like an excuse to avoid doing what you know you should do. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll have more energy than expected as the week opens, and you can make a few big plans even as you deal with routine concerns. Ambition is high.
