The coming week is likely to see some individuals facing what lies ahead in a manner that is not conducive to creative thought or motivation. Indeed, like Sisyphus with his boulder, many will feel that they are fighting uphill battles. And it makes sense that one might become overwhelmed by taking in all that has to be done and trying to address it all at once! But doing things in manageable increments can enable one to win measurable results -- which, in turn, builds confidence.
There are those who are able to tackle the big things in such a manner that their actions will serve as examples of what can be done when attitudes are properly calibrated. Indeed, there are those who will score major personal victories, despite the difficulties they face.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A rather lengthy phase is coming to an end, and you'll begin to feel yourself rise slowly out of an emotional malaise. Something starts anew. (April 5-April 19) -- You cannot take on more than usual. You must be willing to share responsibilities -- and that means asking for help when you most need it!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You mustn't keep thinking that asking for assistance is a sign of weakness; on the contrary, there is strength in collaboration. (May 6-May 20) -- Should anyone fail to come through as expected, you must still do what you have promised to do. It's important that you protect your reputation by fulfilling responsibilities.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may feel as though nothing ever improves, but this is a false perception; you're not seeing what is right in front of you! (June 7-June 20) -- You are likely making things harder for yourself than they have to be. Instead of doubting you can get everything done, focus on doing one thing at a time.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You've been given permission to do things as you see fit, and still you are stuck. Perhaps you need to get out of your way. (July 8-July 22) -- You will have the chance to acknowledge someone else's accomplishments, and this is likely to serve as a timely motivator for you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You feel that you have little to offer at this time, but in fact you are on the threshold of a major accomplishment. You'll start when you're ready. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Others will be eager to hear your opinion on a certain hot topic. Take care that you don't inadvertently give away any personal secrets!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Others may accuse you of fraternizing with the enemy, but the fact is that you can learn a great deal by talking openly with your rivals. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- It's time for you to consider a change -- at home or at work. Simply doing one thing differently can alter your entire worldview and increase productivity.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're waiting for others to complete their jobs so that you can step in and put the finishing touches on a major project. Don't be impatient! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may not be ready to put your plans in motion just yet -- and besides, doing so at this time is likely to overcomplicate things and threaten progress.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- There is likely too much on your plate, but you can make progress by focusing on what you know you can do without making a fuss. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You must remember that there are others besides yourself who are waiting for that lucky break. It may be a good time to yield the right of way -- for now.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can make headway if someone else is ready to help you when you need assistance. You can't do everything. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You've been indulging in something that cannot be shared, but much depends on your ability to share freely with others. Make necessary changes!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are likely to be far more curious about what is going on around you than usual. A search yields a fascinating discovery. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You're unwilling to accept the conclusions that others have come to regarding a pivotal situation. You can prove your point -- but it will take time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Not everyone is able to do what you are able to do -- but that isn't likely to give you the advantage, as that simple truth goes both ways! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be surprised to learn that someone has already done what many have assumed could not be done. This inspires you to put a plan in motion.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to travel farther than expected to lay your hands on that which is rightfully yours. Why was it missing in the first place? That's a question you must answer ASAP! (March 6-March 20) -- Others are likely picking up on your anxiety. You cannot pretend that you are not under stress, but you can channel your energy more productively.
