The coming week is likely to find many individuals studying their pasts for signs about the future -- and ignoring key moments right now that could likely illuminate everything. Surely, some will benefit from studying where they are right now -- what they are doing and what rewards are within reach -- but the majority of individuals are destined to overlook what is right in front of them. Many simply want what they do not have, not understanding that the present is the bedrock upon which the future is truly built.
This week, those relationships that thrive over long distances are likely to receive some unusual attention. Some can surely close that distance and enjoy some rare one-on-one time, but those who can't will have to be content with reaching out through time and space to make contact any way they can. It's a good week for making commitments.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are reminded of the importance of a certain relationship this week -- just in time to keep tensions from rising out of control. (April 5-April 19) -- You aren't likely to derive lessons from the usual sources this week; you're going to have to explore new territory in order to see things differently.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to channel the old you in order to complete a task that must be completed before the week is out. Not everyone is pleased. (May 6-May 20) -- What you want may be out of reach as the week opens, but if you're willing to make certain sacrifices, you can claim it by week's end.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can get to the heart of an issue this week, despite the distractions that may possibly envelop you. Go the distance. (June 7-June 20) -- You can show off certain abilities without training everyone's eyes on you; you can go about your business in a quiet, yet confident manner.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're trying to build something that will last, but a rival threatens to get in the way. You must deal with this before moving forward. (July 8-July 22) -- Quality control remains an issue throughout the week. You mustn't let others do anything that keeps you from applying yourself to key endeavors.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You have many responsibilities, but none is so important that you can't stop what you are doing when necessary and care for a friend in need. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You must apply instinct and intelligence to a problem that is currently threatening to take you down. It'll take more than book learning.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- An early start this week affords you the freedom later on to seek personal satisfaction that you cannot get at any other time. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You mustn't try to straddle the fence this week; make up your mind and be sure to lend your support to the side that is most true to you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have the chance to go back in time and see something from a completely different perspective. This helps you make a hard decision. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're never going to get where you want to go if you're unwilling to step out of your comfort zone -- and this week is a good time to do just that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- A change made by someone you associate with is likely to shake things up within your inner circle, for reasons you only partly understand. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You must do something extra this week in order to get someone to look your way, change course and join you in your current efforts -- but by all means try!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A little "shock treatment" may be in order this week if you want someone to hear you and react in a way that is helpful to you. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may fear that someone is shunning you at this time, but that's not at all the case. He or she is simply as busy as you -- if not more so!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be growing tired of hearing what a certain someone is doing, but there are certainly ways to spin the story in your favor this week. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The role you play in another's affairs may change in subtle but significant ways this week. Soon you'll realize that you have more at stake than usual.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be surprised to learn that someone has been on your side and giving you necessary support for quite some time. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- This week, you will find yourself in a position that allows you greater flexibility, giving you the opportunity to maximize your rewards. A friend comes calling.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can get a great many clues from things you've done in the past, but you can benefit most from a careful study of the present. (March 6-March 20) -- You needn't approach the week's endeavors at all sheepishly; you can be confident -- even aggressive -- as you go after what you most want.
