The coming week is almost certain to reveal much of the human spirit to those who don't often spend much time thinking of such things -- and to those who do, the week is likely to require much in the way of self-recognition and self-assessment, and a willingness to accept the inevitable wherever it may be encountered. For those who are more businesslike than reflective or poetic, events this week are sure to illuminate issues that are usually overlooked; some may actually discover that they are quite able to look at things in a far more personal vein than they ever have.
The week is sure to reveal strength and spirit in ways that are new and unforeseen. To say that events this week will build character is more than true, for events will result from the defining of character.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A quick but accurate judgment early in the week tells you exactly what you have to do. At least one ally will back you up. (April 5-April 19) -- You may be separated for a time from those who provide you with both excitement and solace. Still, you can make things work; take something from home with you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may start the week with some uncertainty, but as the hours and days pass, you'll know that you have just what it takes to make things come out all right. (May 6-May 20) -- You may choose to sit things out for a while this week, in order to reflect a bit and restore your faith in what you've been doing. Now is no time to deceive yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Circumstances may seem to favor some over others this week, but you can do much to change that, and to ensure that everyone enjoys a measure of equality. (June 7-June 20) -- The future calls to you this week in a way that is unfamiliar but certainly not unwelcome. You're eager to study all possibilities and to see what will pay off for you the most.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Timing may not be everything to you this week, but it is certainly not something you can ignore or overlook. A fight for what is best can be won. (July 8-July 22) -- Interpretation may be the key to making the best of certain situations this week. Before trying to get a new message across, be sure to choose your words very carefully.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You are eager to see a trying time recede into memory -- and you can do much to make that happen. Someone who has disagreed with you has a change of heart. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Make no assumptions about those who have taken positions in opposition to your own. They are every bit as confident as you are -- and you can learn much from them.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The reactions you get from others this week will enable you to see things in a new light, perhaps. What appears to be a lost cause is, after all, anything but. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You mean no one any hard feelings, despite how competitive things may become this week. You can win an important victory and still keep your friends.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have waited long enough, and this week you're likely to enjoy the rewards that are rightly yours after a success posted quite some time ago. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- What you remember can be more important to you than what you experience first-hand this week. Share what you think with those around you, and you'll enjoy all the support you desire.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You have a way of presenting ideas that, this week, will serve you very well indeed. Someone helps you who is in a position to do more when the time comes. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The solution to a problem is staring you in the face; all you have to do is recognize it for what it is. Certain other difficulties are unavoidable, to be sure.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're likely to uncover something this week that sets you off in a new direction -- and someone you know well is likely to go along with you. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may face an unforeseen challenge this week, but you have what it takes to meet it head-on if you so choose. Now is certainly not the time to let self-doubt take hold.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You will have one chance this week to stop things from declining further than they already have. Be sure to accept help whenever it is offered! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Your love of all things old-fashioned mustn't keep you from doing things in a way that addresses current issues. You must be willing to take a step into the present.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Environmental influences cannot be avoided this week, but you can come up with a way to make them work for you. Focus on what you know best. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You will have to up your game considerably this week if you're going to pass a test that someone in charge is preparing for you. It's time to take several steps forward.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Now is not the time to revert to old methods. You've been progressing so quickly and adapting to changing circumstances in a very effective way. (March 6-March 20) -- You can afford to be a little more transparent, especially with those who have been doing so much to support your efforts. Work with them, not against them!
