The coming week is likely to present certain dangers that would certainly be recognizable and even familiar if they weren't somewhat disguised by circumstances. The fact that they appear strange and unfamiliar will make the timid shrink from them, and the bold perhaps all too eager to confront them. Both reactions can prove hazardous. A moderate approach is the best, of course -- when is it not? Those who are able to weigh the dangers they face, assess their abilities and estimate potential outcomes given the application of various strategies will surely come out ahead this week. As these individuals solve the mysteries in which most threats are shrouded this week, they will realize that new, high-risk tactics are not required; rather, tried-and-true methods can work wonders to minimize the dangers one faces.
Those who have a handle on things can help others gain the advantage this week. Indeed, the more one cooperates with others to address common needs, the more everyone will benefit; progress can quicken as the days pass. All must remember that personal affairs require a certain amount of attention this week!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A past glory inspires you, but you must take care that you don't simply try to repeat yourself, for that way leads to failure and disappointment. (April 5-April 19) -- A new approach has you rethinking many things that you had taken for granted recently. You are starting to realize that there's much more to uncover.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're likely to attract criticism as the week opens, but your performance as the days pass can change many minds and win you support. (May 6-May 20) -- It's been a while since you were in touch with that certain someone who knows how to talk to you in the most effective way. You need his or her input this week!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What you hear on the news or through the grapevine must not be allowed to alter your way of thinking about certain key issues. Stay the course. (June 7-June 20) -- You know who has your best interests at heart, and anyone who does not is best avoided this week. Focus on doing things with those who are most open to you.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can come to the rescue of someone who finds him- or herself in a position you were in not too long ago. The same "trick" will work in this case. (July 8-July 22) -- You can work wonders with little this week; you don't have to spend a lot of time or money on a potential solution that just amounts to guesswork.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Those who are not on your side as the week opens are likely to support you wholeheartedly as it comes to an end. All you have to do is be yourself! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Try to remember everything and you're not likely to remember much; make checklists and refer to them faithfully, lest you neglect something essential.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- It's not so much that your very life is in danger this week, but you are certainly exposing yourself to something that is best avoided. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't let yourself respond to the unexpected in a way that makes you less productive; remain calm, rational and open to possibilities.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Weigh the pros and cons of a situation that is quickly developing, and you'll be able to make the right decision. A shot in the dark won't help! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You receive news this week that alters your trajectory in a subtle but significant way. You'll certainly want to keep tabs on someone else's progress.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The first thing to do is ensure that your schedule is in sync with someone else's. No one will benefit from working at cross-purposes. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You have more than one difficult decision to make this week, and all will affect those who have allied themselves with you. Don't lost sight of the facts!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Take a chance this week and you may find that the old ways can work wonders when combined with new and untried methods. Experiment! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You have more than one reason to throw your hat in the ring with a friend whose talents complement yours. Working together, you can both enjoy a big success.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You're in need of a little more guidance this week; once someone points you in the right direction, you'll be sure to accomplish much. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be struggling to get things done in the face of an unrelenting challenge. What someone else did before can inspire you and inform your decisions.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Make communication a top priority this week, and you can make things happen in areas that proved too much for the competition only recently. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You can persuade someone to contribute to your efforts this week -- just in time. With this one addition, you can transform your entire team.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You must be willing to see things through another's eyes today if you want to smooth things over and settle on a common approach. (March 6-March 20) -- Your methods may seem outdated to some, but you can prove that they still work quite well for you, despite a minor setback toward midweek.
