The coming week is likely to see a great many individuals battling inner demons and doing all they can to prevent mood swings that can threaten the progress that has been made over the past weeks or months. It's important for everyone to have someone to talk to -- about anything and everything -- whenever the need arises, and talk this week is sure to result in the kind of personal growth and progress that can make a difference in one's life now and in the future. Those who put an emphasis on interdependency will encounter the least trouble this week, and cooperation can surely win the day.
The difference between trying and succeeding will be on display all week long, and those who confuse one with the other will surely need more help than usual this week. It's more important now than ever before that people mean what they say and say what they mean.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- How you spin a story will affect everyone around you; the decision to depart from the truth is a dangerous one that you don't really have to make. (April 5-April 19) -- Someone may ask you to lie, but by sticking to the truth, you can do more to promote your agenda than at any other recent time.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Now is no time to take shortcuts or do anything that has others thinking that you can be bought. You must play by the rules and do only what is aboveboard. (May 6-May 20) -- You're going to put yourself on the line, and you can expect handsome rewards if things go your way. You have an important request to make of someone in charge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Keep your ear to the ground this week, and be on the alert for anything out of the ordinary. Your connection to someone in charge will count for much. (June 7-June 20) -- You may have to color the truth just a bit this week when dealing with those who think they know you better than they do. Avoid any outright deception, however.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can work things to your advantage this week by juggling what is certain with what is only possible. You must be willing to take a risk. (July 8-July 22) -- You're likely to be affected in a new way by what someone else does this week. You may have a question or two for someone who is assuming a central role in your life.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- After you get the cheering up that you likely require early in the week, you'll be good to go and able to accomplish everything on your to-do list. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may be confused about what someone else is up to, but your attempts to get more information are likely to result in little if anything at all. Avoid getting too involved.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Someone is likely to put in a good word for you this week, and the connections you make as a result can propel you forward at an increased pace. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You don't want to have to say "I told you so" to a friend or loved one, but the facts are supporting your position on a certain issue, and not the opposing view.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have more to prove this week than you have in the recent past, but if you cast your mind back, you'll recognize that you've been in this position before. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Information at your fingertips may not be as useful to you as you had hoped. You are going to have to improvise when things get rolling. Avoid a direct conflict.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can make up lost ground this week and get yourself up with the front-runners. Someone may let you down in a personal situation later on.

A friend is likely to come to you with a request that takes you by surprise at first but makes sense after careful consideration.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're likely to receive a confirmation of something you've only suspected, which means you can move ahead with plans you've kept under wraps.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You must guard your resources with great care this week. If you find yourself running out of energy, a visit to a certain someone can prove restorative. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A dangerous situation is recognized as such by someone close to you, but you've not been willing to listen. This week, events transpire that begin to convince you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may not be as far from where you want to be as you had feared, and this week you can reach your destination with the help of a good friend. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You don't need permission to do what needs to be done, but you may need to ask for forgiveness if you do what you want to do and things don't go quite according to plan.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to engage in some tricky negotiations this week on behalf of someone who doesn't know all that you know. You'll impress the boss.
