The coming week is likely to see things develop in unusual ways for many, but even when things are unconventional in the extreme -- and that is possible for some -- the approach must be realistic, solid, pragmatic and thoughtful. No matter how crazy things may seem to be this week, all must strive to keep their feet on the ground and their minds clear of anything that might distract from the work at hand.
Work turned in this week is not guaranteed to please, but that needn't spell the end of the line for anyone. Indeed, second and even third or fourth tries can put one over the finish line, and all those in charge are likely to grant favors of all kinds to those who demonstrate that they are, indeed, working faithfully toward desired ends.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may find yourself working with someone who has accepted a certain situation as unstoppable or unchangeable. This isn't true, and you can prove it. (April 5-April 19) -- Your stubbornness is going to get in your way and prevent you from doing what everyone knows you have to do for your own well-being. You've got to acquiesce.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- "Yes" and "no" are only words, and this week there is much more going on than can be summed up in such a simplistic manner. Dig deeper; study harder! (May 6-May 20) -- You cannot depend on the first idea you have this week to see you through, though it's not likely to be a bad one. Give yourself time to polish something and get it just right.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You're used to working with a formula of sorts, but this week that's not likely to see you through. You must be willing to experiment very freely. (June 7-June 20) -- Difficulties come to you through expected and unexpected channels this week, and you may be required to deal with them out of order as you attempt to please a superior.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're doing yourself a disservice by sticking with something unsuitable just because you said you would. Go your own way this week. (July 8-July 22) -- Now is no time to engage in the kind of petty arguments that keep so many others busy this week. You must take the high road and teach others how to behave when the chips are down.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Why are you not asking for help when you need it? This week, the dangers you face are serious enough that you'll certainly want to solicit timely assistance. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- The social aspects of a certain endeavor will please you this week, even though you may feel, in the end, that you have not used all your time to the best advantage.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can keep tabs on a loved one this week without seeming to hover or restrict his or her movements in any way. You can provide necessary security. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're in no mood to do a certain thing that doesn't come easily, but the decision isn't likely to be yours. Someone else lays down the law for you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have to spend more time with a special friend this week in order to make things right. Remember, you two can talk about anything at any time. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can expect to have to step in and do something that someone else is unable to do. You mustn't let this keep you from tending to your own business and meeting a deadline.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You will want to pay attention to the things you cannot foresee, which sounds like an impossibility, but when you try it, you'll see how it works. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Your focus is shifting at this time. A friend bides his or her time and makes you wait -- but for what? That's the question. You have reason to bend the rules a bit.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Keeping track of a certain someone isn't going to be easy this week, especially when circumstances separate you for a time. Keep your eyes peeled. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You must be willing to accept that certain developments are unstoppable this week. If you have the right attitude, you can surely go along for the ride; enjoy it!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- The most important things seem to sneak up on you this week. Try to put yourself in a position that allows you to see things coming. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can afford to take care of yourself a little more than usual. Food, drink and plenty of rest can do you a world of good at this time. Don't try to hide.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You can teach someone quite a valuable trick of the trade that will serve him or her quite well -- and reflect well on you, certainly, all week long. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Teamwork is essential, even though you may insist on taking the lead. Recognizing that you cannot do it all is the first step toward generating a workable plan.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have trouble keeping track of time this week, as events seem to overlap and your awareness is blurred by the sheer volume of activity. (March 6-March 20) -- You're ready to say that you're doing a certain thing for the last time, but a friend doesn't want this to be the end of the line. You must strike a workable compromise.
