The coming week is likely to confuse many, as events transpire that are unexpected and require all those involved to approach situations and problems from an entirely new point of view. The ability to maneuver freely as circumstances require will surely prove of paramount importance. Those who are so set in their ways that they cannot -- or will not -- do things differently are sure to be at a disadvantage. "Novelty" in word and deed is not enough, and one isn't likely to succeed until just the right strategy and tactics are adopted. Experimentation can yield good results, but no one should expect to be successful on the first try; indeed, one may only get on top of a situation after several restarts.
Actions that proved successful in the past aren't likely to do so this week, and many will be shaking their heads asking why. He or she who answers that question will, of course, be on top this week -- and would do well to share that information. Grievous errors can be avoided this week by almost all.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A minor misinterpretation of someone else's actions can cause a major problem this week -- unless you are willing to make a key concession. (April 5-April 19) -- No one is working against you at this time, despite how it may seem. You're eager to be on top of your game once again; self-awareness is a key issue.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You've had a great deal of positive energy of late, which others will be quick to adopt. Someone you know reveals a secret early in the week. (May 6-May 20) -- Toward midweek, in the midst of much confusion, something happens that you consider a very important "moment of clarity." Things are on the upswing!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Personal concerns are likely to conflict with professional needs. You must strive to balance your affairs at home and at the office. (June 7-June 20) -- You don't always do things by the rules, and this week offers a prime example of how you operate. Excitement beckons.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You must focus exclusively on the things that affect you directly at home and at the workplace. Don't be distracted by the irrelevant. (July 8-July 22) -- You may have to avoid the company of those who usually give you great pleasure in order to deal with a few private issues that demand immediate attention this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- As the week opens, you may find that it is difficult to get your message across, but later on your audience is far more likely to absorb the info. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A failure early in the week leads to a victory later on. You needn't try to figure out exactly how it worked out; trust that things are going your way.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have to be patient after reaching out to someone for work or pleasure; he or she is not operating on your timeline. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A familiar situation turns into something quite surprising as the week unfolds. You will have to work hard to keep up with changing circumstances.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may require more room to maneuver than usual this week. Don't let your affection for another keep you from doing what you know you must. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your concern for a friend or loved one will deepen, as events transpire that test both of you in different ways. You can come to the rescue.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may be frustrated by the way things seem to be working against you -- but, in fact, you may not have been fully prepared. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You can meet all deadlines this week, but only if you're willing to try one or two new and perhaps risky work methods. You have much to gain -- and much to lose.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Like so many others, you will have to incur certain risks this week in order to advance your cause. A decision to go ahead is final. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Someone has been telling you what you can expect, but you didn't listen -- or listen closely enough. It's all falling out as you were told.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You have been feeling somewhat restricted lately, and this week you'll have the opportunity to do what you must to reverse that trend. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have underestimated how long a certain job would take you to complete -- and that's why you're still plugging away at it now. Don't give up!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have to ask for more room to maneuver this week. Those who stand in your way don't understand your needs; you must be crystal-clear. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You and a friend may be considering doing business together, but is now really the time? You will want to weigh all possible gains -- and drawbacks.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Inspiration can be yours if you pay attention to what is going on around you -- and to the people who are at the top. (March 6-March 20) -- Someone close to you is making things more difficult than they have to be, for reasons you don't understand. It's time to discuss this issue directly.
