The coming week is likely to require of a great many individuals a willingness to put one's own needs on a back burner while the needs of others come to the fore. Some will surely be afraid of what the week demands, but there is no good reason to avoid what so many must face gracefully. Those who are more willing to put others first will find that the week offers hidden joys and rewards of all kinds. Memories can be made this week, and surprises are in store for those who do not insist on turning away from anything that is not planned down to the last detail!
This can be a week of unlimited opportunity -- and one can do much for those who are not friends or family. Indeed, perfect strangers can provide one another with much happiness this week, and it just takes recognizing all that one has in common with others to make true magic happen.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your eventual success is foretold this week, but if you miss the signs you may actually reduce your overall chances. Pay attention!

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You cannot expect the same old routine to play out favorably this week. You must be willing to try new things. (May 6-May 20) -- You mustn't let a difference of opinion threaten what promises to be a wonderful time this week. It's best to put disagreements aside.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What you and your companions do this week can reveal the weakness in someone else's argument. He or she is willing to join you very soon.
