The coming week is likely to find a great many individuals tackling issues that seem to have come to light quite by surprise, and yet most will have the sense that events and developments this week are clear extensions of what has been happening in recent weeks. A sense of continuity will be important all this week, and connecting the dots will prove a necessary component of problem-solving and project management at this time. The best results will come from acknowledging that good work is the product of good work, and that this week's accomplishments are only single links in a long chain of endeavors.
Those facing the most daunting of challenges are likely to find that the answer to any problem lies in an honest assessment of what has been accomplished. Even the most dramatic of changes -- to plans or to their implementation -- may not prove significantly different from how an idea or project looked at its inception. Progress is fueled by brainpower this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You must ready yourself for a journey that may not have to be made when all is said and done. You don't want to be caught unprepared.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be tangled up with those who would promote a falsehood, but by the end of the week, you'll see a way out and be able to save yourself.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can work behind the scenes this week and do much to promote another's pet project. There's more than vanity at play here.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may have to be more diligent than ever if you want to avoid the pitfalls others are falling prey to this week.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may have no choice but to move in a direction that doesn't seem quite right to you. You know how to make the best of the situation.

(March 6-March 20) -- You receive more than one reminder about what is required of you this week, but you won't be hurried in any way. You call the shots at all times.
