The coming week is likely to require a great deal more teamwork than might have been anticipated by some. This is sure to prove a test of patience and fortitude, but it can also be the source of tremendous personal reward for those who rise to the occasion. Some may experience shock when it turns out that their efforts on a group project have not been in sync with the expectations of others in the group; this will result in some frustration that ultimately gives way to confidence. One's know-how will win the day, in the case of anyone who is undaunted and eager to proceed.
The risk of missing something significant this week can be minimized by those who are able and willing to admit that they are not omniscient. All should watch out for chain reactions that can make the simple much more complicated, and the trivial much more important than anyone might anticipate.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A "joke" that you don't think is funny propels you through the rest of the week; your reaction is all the fuel you really need. (April 5-April 19) -- You're being wildly misunderstood, perhaps. Someone's narrow view of what is possible may be standing in your way, but you must be willing to listen.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to size people up very quickly this week before putting your feelings into words. Don't be too casual about it; you have a deadline. (May 6-May 20) -- You may not agree with someone's assessment of your recent efforts, but your job this week will be to provide most of what has been requested.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The difference between what is possible and what is appropriate is revealed to you this week. You needn't go back to square one. (June 7-June 20) -- You may wonder why others aren't eager for you to help this week -- until you realize that what you have to offer is beyond some of your teammates' understanding.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- It's a good week to grant others a little more freedom, especially when it comes to something that you would usually take care of yourself. (July 8-July 22) -- You will have little extra time to deliver the goods this week, so you must jump at any chance to get a little ahead of the game. You won't get stuck!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- What you bring to the table is undervalued, certainly, but by the end of the week it will have far more support than you have had in the past. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Try to see things from another's point of view, especially as you experiment together during the first few days of the week. Later, you reach a compromise.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You cannot let physical ills keep you from fulfilling your part of a promise this week. Going back on your word can prove genuinely dangerous. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A congregation of like minds -- including yours -- can make a change this week that is felt by many for days to come. This is something that matters!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Your explanation of something unintentional isn't likely to fly this week. You must be willing to tell the truth and face the music. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- How you react to a new development may perhaps shock others into action. Now is no time to sit still; you must be willing to air your objections!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- There are plenty of options available to you this week, despite the warnings from some that you have only one or two alternatives. Explore! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You must resist the very real temptation to dig in your heels and say "no" to any options proposed by those lining up against you. You must listen to reason!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- If you speak too soon this week, you may betray your own ignorance of a very important issue. Take the time to do your homework first. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can keep a serious situation from becoming a genuine emergency. You'll want to keep tabs on those close to you as this plays out and comes to an end.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Someone may be pushing you to the breaking point, but you discover a way out of this difficult situation and feel liberated by week's end. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Whether you win or lose this week, you'll certainly walk away with a greater knowledge of yourself and what is really "right" for you at this time.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- What you receive from others isn't likely to be what you expect this week. Still, you should be able to turn it into something of value. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't stand in anyone's way this week. Do what you can to help others and lend encouragement. Before the week is over, that favor will be reciprocated.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're likely to learn a great deal this week that allows you to punch through an obstacle that has been a longtime concern. (March 6-March 20) -- You've been receiving a great deal of advice and counsel of late, but this week you'll want to try to go it alone in order to gain confidence and self-sufficiency.
