The coming week is likely to compare very favorably to a week that is remembered by many individuals as one of the best. But the reasons this is so may prove quite surprising to most. The fact is that, regardless of one's psychological makeup, physical stature, or personal preferences and abilities, there can and will be something for almost everyone to celebrate at some point during the week, even in cases where one doesn't know what he or she has done to deserve such rewards. The lesson, of course, is that one must take what comes and be appreciative of this; whether or not he or she feels that something has been "earned," it can still prove quite valuable on a personal level. Indeed, that's what matters most this week: what happens on that personal level.
Anyone who is hit with a sudden ailment this week must avoid panic of any kind, for that can only make things worse. In only some cases should one have cause to worry about the future when coping with the sudden onset of illness.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- The more specific your plans, the greater your odds of success. You can do nothing, of course, about someone else's "surprise." (April 5-April 19) -- You are trying to prevent something that threatens to slow you down for quite some time. This week, such efforts are best shared with like-minded individuals.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Something lies just around the corner that will prove a game-changer in many ways when at last you have a chance to enjoy it. (May 6-May 20) -- Your view of the past is tainted by your fears of the future. Where does the present fall in all of this? You mustn't neglect things that are happening right now!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You have a few new things to learn this week, and you can get right down to it early if you are willing to forgo a certain personal pleasure. (June 7-June 20) -- You don't want to miss out on any lessons offered by someone who has been through what you are currently facing for the first time. Listen up!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- What happens to you early in the week will enable you to face a later challenge with confidence. You are approaching a necessary turning point. (July 8-July 22) -- Something that affected you long ago is likely to resurface this week; as a result, you'll be going through much that likely raises the stakes on all fronts.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You don't want to offer mere guesses this week when you are faced with serious questions. Be sure you know what you're talking about! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may wind up doing everything yourself this week -- but you may feel more comfortable with such arrangements.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- What you learn when you press that button will start your week on a note of highest expectation. It is a portal to the future, perhaps! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- How you communicate will make all the difference this week, and more important than the words you use will be the tone and music in your voice.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have to make an unexpected sacrifice this week, but as a result someone on your team is able to take home the gold. Celebrate! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Keeping a secret from the very person who can help you is surely a dangerous waste of time this week. Let the cat out of the bag!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're the very person who others are likely to turn to this week when they need guidance. Leadership skills are put to the test. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You are perhaps too concerned with fitting in this week; do what you know is right, and let the chips fall where they may. Don't force the issue!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're trying to get someone else to follow along, but perhaps you are not leading as well as you might. Maintain close contact. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may not be able to hide your true desires this week; this can be a good thing when someone who can satisfy them learns of them for the first time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Your imaginative approach to something that would otherwise be merely routine pays off in ways few might imagine. Keep it up! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- If you find yourself not feeling up to par at any point this week, you should be able to make arrangements that give you the time you need to heal.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may discover that much of the week has been experienced before in some way -- but that doesn't mean you are unwilling to experience it again! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You will remember someone who had much to do with the formation of ideas that are still in play at this point in your life, personally and professionally.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You have made some big plans recently, and this week you'll have the chance to see if they will pan out as expected. Be disciplined. (March 6-March 20) -- It's time for you to express yourself more openly to those who maintain certain control over your life -- not just once, but over an extended period of time.
