The coming week is likely to lull many into the belief that things can be accomplished as easily as one-two-three. But for those who care to look more closely, there will be an undercurrent of conflict that makes things much more complex, if not difficult, than any appearances may suggest. What happens this week isn't the result of any astrological conspiracy, however! Anyone who looks for some sort of diabolical influence over their affairs is sure to be disappointed, or relieved! Those who know that nothing is quite what it seems will be ready for what comes -- including difficulties that were not anticipated and for which, perhaps, one cannot even prepare. This week, endeavors both easy and hard must be approached in a realistic manner.
On the personal front, this is a week of discoveries. Friends, lovers, spouses and even archenemies are likely to uncover truths about others that change the landscape ever so slightly -- but quite significantly. The result, of course, is that nothing assumed to be "permanent" is so: Everything can change and will, eventually, to some degree.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Any sense of ease this week is coming from within, for that which you face is likely to be more complicated than usual. (April 5-April 19) -- Just because something is hard doesn't mean it isn't worth doing; on the contrary, it is likely to be far more important for you to do because it is difficult!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- What you are doing may confuse those who only claim to know you, but those who know you well will understand everything quite clearly. (May 6-May 20) -- You know where to go for the kind of assistance you need, but you may choose to solicit it without letting anyone else know. Why is that?
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can give yourself precisely what you need, but don't you think it will be more satisfying to let a loved one do it for you? (June 7-June 20) -- You may be getting yourself in hot water without even knowing it; as the week progresses, you'll want to know just how others are reacting to your every move.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- In the time it takes to do something half as difficult you can reach a certain personal goal this week -- and share benefits with a friend. (July 8-July 22) -- It may be time for you to come clean and let others know just what you've done, and why. There should be no punishment in store; it will all make sense!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be distracted throughout much of the week by someone who is doing things in a way that doesn't sit well with you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have to repeat yourself in word and deed more than a few times in order to ensure that others know what you're talking about and what you are doing.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Don't let anyone push you into a corner this week. You must remain free and flexible so that you can maneuver as necessary to avoid obstacles. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A threat comes to you in an unusual form this week, and you may not recognize it for what it is until the time comes for you to act. Don't hesitate!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You are able to show someone close to you just how you expect certain things to be done. When the time comes, you can let him or her fly solo. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- What you have lost is likely to be found by someone who didn't even know it was missing. This week, you'll have many occasions to thank perfect strangers.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You must know just what your true purpose really is this week, otherwise you will simply wander and become more frustrated with yourself. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You and a friend, though separated by necessary circumstances, will find a way to stay in touch and keep things moving forward in a most productive way.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A reunion of sorts is to be expected today, but as soon as you think you know what it will bring, you're likely to be quite surprised. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Someone is trying to keep you off balance this week. The work you do is good, and you may rely on your track record to give you confidence.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are likely to encounter someone who is proposing nothing concrete; take care you aren't taken in by this sham. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You will get closer to a certain personal goal this week than you have ever gotten -- though you may not be ready to take the last few necessary steps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to study certain situations and circumstances carefully this week before you have the confidence to jump in. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You are waiting for someone to provide you with certain essentials, but you can't wait too long! You can get moving without having all the tools at your disposal.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to search long and hard for something that only recently was right by your side. You will want to determine just how it was lost. (March 6-March 20) -- Focus on that which appears clear and crisp; don't spend time trying to work your way through any kind of fog -- whether real or imagined.
