The coming week is likely to progress in such a fashion that the best ideas may be overlooked for a time, while others enjoy far more consideration than they are worth. But that's all part of the process for those who are trying to position themselves for future advancement; the ups and downs of self-promotion will be quite dramatic throughout the week, though things are apt to turn out well for those who don't let temporary setbacks get them down. Productivity may not be at its highest right now, but there's nothing to stop one from preparing for what lies ahead. After all, learning the game is sometimes more important than playing it!
All must guard against physical ills this week -- especially those that can lay one up for a significant length of time. As usual, prevention is the best medicine; those who give themselves the care they require can avoid any serious maladies and carry on with strength and confidence.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You must take the time to do what is right this week for yourself and for someone else in your inner circle. Are you on the right side? (April 5-April 19) -- Much of your week will be spent preparing for something that you must do later on, but that surely affects how you do things moment by moment.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll have a vested interest this week in someone else's progress and potential success. You know a good thing when you see one! (May 6-May 20) -- A loss of momentum is expected toward midweek, but then you'll be able to pick up the pace again and finish strong, challenging a major rival for the top spot.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You're not interested in dealing with anyone who does not follow the rules this week. You can't afford such trouble right now. (June 7-June 20) -- A complication may hold you back for a time this week; free yourself of it, and you can score more than one personal victory before the week is out.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may have to make something of a sacrifice this week in order to enable someone close to you to rise to a personal challenge. (July 8-July 22) -- Apply yourself to a particularly stubborn problem this week and you can certainly come to understand it better, if not solve it once and for all.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Are you paying too much attention to someone else when you should be focusing on your own affairs? Don't get distracted this week! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A professional option strikes you as odd when it is first presented to you. After further thought, you may be more than willing to see where it will lead.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You know what you need, and you know where you can get it. It's not that easy, however, and you must be patient throughout a long week. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You aren't likely to recognize a certain opportunity this week until it has almost passed you by, but it won't be too late to take advantage of it!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A controversy arises this week after you and a rival try to do the same thing at the same time. Someone is going to have to yield. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may enjoy an enforced journey far more than expected this week. You learn much about yourself and about someone who insists on accompanying you.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- How you react to a certain development says a great deal more about you this week than you may want to reveal, but you can undo any damage done. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You mustn't confuse quantity with quality this week. It's certainly easier to do more, but "better" is what's really required of you at this time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll be eager to follow someone else's progress this week, as you had much to do with getting him or her to this point. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may have to put your own work aside for a time this week in order to assist someone who is in a far more vulnerable position than you are. You'll be rewarded.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You know something about yourself that no one else knows, of course, but did you know that a loved one knows something you don't? (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- An unusual strategy serves you very well this week, as you try to outmaneuver someone who is doing things in an unconventional way as well. It's quite a contest!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You benefit from a vision of the future that has you in control of your own destiny. You can do much this week to realize that vision! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You and a partner can come up with quite a plan this week, but take care you're not letting your excitement get the better of you. Are you being realistic?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll have a chance to step into a new role this week and win the praise of many who have been there before. Be ready to learn a lot! (March 6-March 20) -- You'll start the week in a rather ordinary way, but later on things take a very unusual turn as you strive for something really quite remarkable.
