The coming week is likely to see a great many individuals breaking through barriers of all kinds, as events transpire that encourage people from all walks of life to step out of their comfort zones and do things that might not even have been imagined only last week. There are two natural reactions to what will transpire: One can either charge ahead with confidence and explore what's possible, or one can hold back, fearful that the direction in which he or she is about to go will be fraught with danger. The knowledge that comes from forward motion, or from no motion at all, will prove valuable in itself.
Separations of all kinds are likely to be unavoidable this week, and many will fear that weakness and a lack of confidence may result. Surprises are in store, however, for more than a few individuals will discover hitherto untapped sources of resolve deep within.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are eager to be reunited with someone who figured prominently in your private affairs in the past. He or she has changed some. (April 5-April 19) -- You're eager to put the finishing touches on a project that you've been working on for some time. This week, things may suddenly seem unsettled.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're ready for something big to happen, but you don't quite know what it will be. By week's end, however, you'll have received several clues. (May 6-May 20) -- The longer you wait to swing into action this week, the further you will be from the best possible starting point. Don't miss your only chance!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- A loved one is concerned for you for reasons you don't quite fathom -- but as the week progresses you'll realize what the issue really is. (June 7-June 20) -- You may feel as though you and a partner are not working toward a common goal, but in fact you are likely far more in sync now than at any time in the past.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may discover that what you've been counting on is only a fantasy. A friend helps you get your feet back on the ground before it's too late. (July 8-July 22) -- You can afford to be a little more realistic this week, especially when it comes to making a certain dream come true. You're closer than you think!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- There's no excuse for being bored this week; so much is going on that you should be engaged every moment. A friend tags along. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You'll be dealing with a great many "shoulds" and "shouldn'ts" all week long. In the end, you'll want to make clear what it is you want and need.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Someone may present a problem to you that seems to be insoluble -- but with a shift in thinking you'll realize you have the answer. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your answer to any kind of criticism this week is likely to rub others the wrong way. Think about how you can be a better example to those around you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A reunion brings you closer to your "true self" this week. A friend or loved one gives you the freedom you need to explore all possibilities. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may have to work much harder than usual to keep your behavior within acceptable limits. Temptations abound, and you are a susceptible target.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can afford to be much more expressive, especially when the rules are being set as the week opens. You can establish expectations. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A matter of probability has you considering some very unusual options this week. You must communicate openly about what it is you most want.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll feel very comfortable this week doing the kinds of things that you are known for; anything else may make you quite fearful. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Someone close to you acknowledges a good idea, and once you have permission you can use it to make things happen in a most surprising and satisfying way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You don't need anyone's permission to do the things that you know need to be done this week -- but encouragement is another story altogether! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Good friends give you what you need this week -- though you may not recognize it as such until you are enjoying the benefits of it and making firm plans.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The closer you are to someone this week, the more you will object to the very things that attracted you to him or her in the first place. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be asked to do things in a manner that challenges your belief system. Now is no time to keep objections to yourself; speak up right away!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You are likely to discover that the plans you've made for the week don't really hold up to scrutiny. You must be prepared to improvise. (March 6-March 20) -- You may feel as if you don't have a "home base," but a friend makes it clear that you will want for nothing as long as he or she is in the picture.
