The coming week demands that more time be spent clearing out the cobwebs and dusting things off for future use. It may seem, to many, as if this is a waiting period of sorts, but it must not be wasted, as there is much on the horizon for which everyone must be fully prepared. Repairs, reviews and examinations will take place all week, and those who understand the need to be in tip-top shape will surely benefit. Indeed, those who are not running smoothly and efficiently on all cylinders risk losing out.
There are bargains to be enjoyed, but only for those who are willing to look in the most unusual places for them. Those who are on the go this week mustn't lose sight of the kinds of expenditures that make sense when things get tough; just because one is busy doesn't mean that a waste of resources will be forgiven.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You will want to surround yourself with the most experienced and knowledgeable people in order to do the impossible and score a win. (April 5-April 19) -- Someone is getting closer to the truth, and you have a choice to make: Do what you can to separate yourself from the investigation or lend a hand?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- All it'll take is one little alteration to your plans and you'll be off and running in a way that you may never have anticipated. (May 6-May 20) -- You can score a few important and well-timed points against a rival who seems to know all your tricks. It's a good time to learn a few more!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your attempt at something new may not meet your expectations, but others will be impressed by how fast you are able to learn the subtleties. (June 7-June 20) -- Focus on doing what you know is right, despite the fact that so many others are taking the same shortcut and challenging the rules.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can put someone in the best position to enjoy all that he or she has coming, but you mustn't expect things to be all even as a result. (July 8-July 22) -- You have the chance to do more for your team than anyone else has lately. Your unique approach points the way for those who want to try something new.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Even a "perfect" plan can backfire, and this week you're likely to encounter much that threatens to derail you as you try to progress. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- As you look for an opportunity in one area, don't forget to acknowledge those in another -- even if you don't want to take advantage.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- There is much you can do to defend yourself against someone who has fought hard against you in the past. You won't be undermined! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- That which was easy only a few days ago proves difficult this week, and you are likely to take several days to settle into a productive routine.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can prove yourself in a situation that is simply too much for one of your closest competitors. Energy and productivity are high. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You have a new idea that others are likely to find quite interesting -- if not irresistible. You'll want to demonstrate just how it will work!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- It may be up to you to ensure that an age-old tradition of sorts is not abandoned. Others will follow your lead, surely. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may begin the week with the unpleasant feeling that you are somehow in the way, but this is not the case. You simply have to get used to your new role!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- While you wait for things to begin moving more quickly, you can do a little homework and ensure that you can keep up with the times. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Looking back will enable you to see things that are waiting for you over the horizon.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are after information that is not yours by rights -- but does that mean you have to stoop to illicit means to acquire it? Surely not! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What you see, at least during the first part of the week, is what you are likely to get. Take care that you don't overlook subtle hints at the workplace.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Though you've only been getting bits of information slowly, piece-by-piece, you're able to put them together into one clear picture. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You should make no attempt to keep a secret of any kind, as you will surely be found out -- first by a good friend or a member of your family.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may not understand just what someone else means by sending you certain "clandestine" messages. Investigate now! (March 6-March 20) -- You're likely to unleash a surprise on those who are most unsuspecting right now. The result, of course, is likely to surprise you even more this week!
