The coming week is likely to require some significant adjustments on the part of most individuals. They will work to accommodate changes in scheduling that are all a part of major personal or professional efforts. Attempts to balance the needs of friends and loved ones with one's professional commitments may prove unusually difficult. Solutions will be presented all week long, but it will be tricky for many individuals to spot them; the opportunity to adopt one solution or another is not likely to last long. Indeed, the ability to make a quick decision and commit to a course of action with little foresight will be necessary for some -- if not all.
Many will make inauspicious starts this week. This can be remedied, of course, but it's not likely to be easy -- and everyone must be willing to give others the benefit of the doubt and, whenever possible, a second chance!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You're going to be grappling with major personal issues this week, even as you face a difficult professional decision. (April 5-April 19) -- You will want to move forward this week before you make things more difficult for yourself by choosing an alternate course.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A loved one knows just what is going on with you, but this week his or her encouragement has only a mild effect on your mood.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be bothered by what your subconscious keeps trying to tell you this week; you can take the high road, however, and avoid any conflicts.
