The coming week is likely to progress according to a certain concrete plan, but whether it will be exactly the one concocted by each individual to suit his or her purposes and fill his or her needs is highly doubtful. All must be ready to face certain situations and circumstances that have not been foreseen. There will be some who are simply tired of dealing with the unexpected, and they will likely see what arises this week as an "emergency" of some sort. But it's not; it will simply demand a different way of thinking from that usually required by routine progress. There are others who will look forward to having things not fit any kind of recognized mold -- and they will surely have a fine time of it, as they make things harder for themselves by promoting plots and subplots that are quite different from the original plan.
Then there are those, finally, who recognize that the surprises that spring up this week can be addressed if one is quick-thinking and flexible. Those who refuse to be bound by hard-and-fast rules will make the best of it, as they maneuver here and there, making use of prevailing winds to steer a course toward desired ends.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may surprise someone with a renewed interest in what is going on between you. The professional gains are likely to be considerable. (April 5-April 19) -- You cannot expect the same old thing to yield results that are new and exciting this week. You must be willing to set sail in uncharted waters for a time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- The journey you take this week will bring you very close to your heart's desire on at least one occasion -- but will you recognize it as such? (May 6-May 20) -- Others may congratulate you on recent gains, but you're concerned that you've not yet gotten what you were most hoping for -- professionally or personally.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll have reason to take a break as the week winds down. Your efforts are likely to have been unusually strenuous -- and productive, too. (June 7-June 20) -- You may discover that to get what you want, you must recognize it clearly and put yourself in the right place at the right time. But is that really easy to do?
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may require help as the week opens in order to see things through and accomplish everything on the docket. Give and take! (July 8-July 22) -- You may have to ask a friend or partner to take a less visible role in your affairs this week, as you try to increase your standing among certain others.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Put yourself in another's shoes and you'll see why following the same course this week is not at all the best personal or professional policy. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- As you gravitate toward a new group of potential allies, you'll want to examine your reasons for any kind of change. What's really at play right now?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be left with more questions than answers this week, despite your attempt to secure concrete information from reliable sources. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You are likely to begin the week in a state of high expectation, but you know that this means you will certainly be disappointed on at least one or two counts.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not have a handle on your emotional development at this time. Highs and lows make choices quite difficult this week. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You want to make decisions based on personal needs, but you will be reminded of your responsibility to others. Compromise!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Looking back will enable you to get a clearer picture of what lies ahead; this seeming paradox is nothing unfamiliar, so enjoy it! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- How you see yourself five years from now will prove, ultimately, to have much to do with what happens this week. Current developments are of lasting import.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You are feeling the full effects of that which happened some time ago, but which can only now be considered "full blown." Act accordingly! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You have a deadline looming, but before you do what has been assigned, you must take care of a personal situation that is close to getting out of hand.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may find yourself in charge of something that has not yet taken shape; it will be up to you this week to give it a form -- and a purpose. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What happens behind closed doors as the week opens must not be revealed to others until you are certain that all parties concerned are willing to share.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A minor shock will be good for you this week, as it steels your resolve and inspires you to make a move you've been considering for a while. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Take care that what you say or do this week cannot be misinterpreted, as that can lead to a situation from which it will be hard to extricate yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can prove to others this week that you are exactly what you say you are -- and the reaction will be almost universally positive. (March 6-March 20) -- There are those who haven't a care in the world right now, but that's not you! Indeed, you likely have more on your plate than usual that requires attention.
