The coming week is likely to present numerous situations, familiar and unfamiliar, that require much more cooperation than most routine affairs of the past weeks. Indeed, success will depend, in large part, upon every individual's willingness to set aside ego and focus instead on the project at hand. In the best of all possible worlds, even rivals and enemies will work together this week for the good of all concerned; in most situations, a win is a win for many more than those directly involved in a given endeavor.
Tensions may arise on the home front for some, as not everyone is likely to understand the importance of setting aside family and taking responsibility for something that doesn't immediately seem to match it in importance. That's a fault of perception, of course, and such a view isn't likely to prevail. Tensions should fade quickly.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- The lessons you've learned can be applied to almost all endeavors this week -- and others will likely learn from you, in turn. (April 5-April 19) -- You will want to pick and choose very carefully which gatherings to attend, as some may only be a waste of time -- and you have little time to waste right now!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to pass judgment on another's work this week, so take care that you are encouraging and never harsh. (May 6-May 20) -- You are eager to see what comes of a major group effort -- though you may have to wait much longer than expected. Some may move on to other things before then.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What happens early in the week may be the result of something unintentional, but it's likely to have lasting repercussions. (June 7-June 20) -- You may find yourself in a tight spot toward midweek when conflicting needs and desires converge. Time is on your side, and you can get yourself out of trouble, surely.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may find yourself facing something that you expected, and yet you are ill-prepared for it. It's a good reason to let bygones be bygones. (July 8-July 22) -- You can assemble a crack team that, when all is running smoothly, can get everything done on time and under budget. Luck is likely to be a factor, however.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Your style will be much admired and oft imitated by others this week -- but is it enough to get things done? (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to draw the line somewhere, and it might as well be early in the week. Once you lay down the law, things start running more smoothly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can't allow yourself to be interrupted or countermanded; stick to your guns and keep doing what you know is right. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The advice of someone who has tallied more victories than you can certainly come in handy this week -- but you mustn't ignore your keen instincts!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- It's not enough to get things done this week, you must get them done in just the right way. Style and substance combine most effectively! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- It's not enough to be recognized for what you once did; you must be courageous enough to do something new. Don't rest on your laurels!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may find it difficult this week to determine just what is most important, as everything seems to weigh heavily on you -- for a time. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll want to prepare yourself for coming criticism, for not everyone will appreciate your methods -- though your motives are likely unassailable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're likely to receive praise from an unusual source early in the week -- and that will give you confidence for what lies in store. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're busy with the details and not seeing the whole picture, perhaps. Take a step back and you'll see just what is standing in your way right now.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You're eager to jump in and help someone in need, but there may be rules and regulations that prevent you from doing all you can. (Jan 7-Jan. 19) -- You can combine the modern and the old-fashioned in a way that is uniquely yours -- and others will surely appreciate your efforts and your aesthetic.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You cannot avoid the emotional component of certain issues this week, so be ready to dive into the deep end with little warning. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Your efforts can prove valuable, but how much more will you be able to accomplish if you let go of your private desires and work closely with others?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may find yourself in a position of some power, and the best thing you can do with it is command attention and provide guidance. (March 6-March 20) -- You are only part of a well-oiled team this week, but that doesn't mean you won't be recognized for your contributions.
