The coming week is likely to throw many surprises in the paths of those who think that their plans will lead to a trouble-free journey through work, rest, play and relationships -- and there's not going to be much that is "trouble-free" about anything this week!
There will surely be those who choose to go it alone this week, but it is the rare individual who is able to take what comes and make it work out well entirely on his or her own. Solid relationships -- both personal and professional -- will be a major component of most individuals' successes this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- If the choice this week is between doing something all the way or only partway, you know what you have to do. You're not one for partial measures. (April 5-April 19) -- You have a plan that can make this a memorable week for all concerned -- if you are able to put it into motion quickly as the week opens. Don't hesitate!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Your week may seem to lurch forward at an inconsistent pace while you try to decide on something that affects you in ways that everyone recognizes. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll be tempted to try an entirely new approach to a familiar problem this week. One friend has your back, while another warns you against being impulsive.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- It may be time for you to gather your forces and go after something that was taken from you a while back. The conflict that arises teaches you much. (June 7-June 20) -- You may not know exactly what you want, but you know that you want something very specific. This would be quite a conundrum if you weren't able to experiment so effectively.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- A difference of opinion mustn't be allowed to come between you and a loved one when, after all, you're both working toward the same goal. Work together! (July 8-July 22) -- If it seems you are not being as effective as usual this week, you may want to explore certain new methods that are only now being made available to you. It's time for a change!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You are dedicated and hardworking and hardly one to give up before you have done all you can to succeed at a given endeavor. What's different this week? (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You must remain open and communicative with friends, family members and loved ones this week as an attempt at something new takes you farther from home than expected.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have a choice to make toward midweek; what you do beforehand will prepare you, and what you do after will set the stage for a future endeavor. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Much that you do this week will have to go unnoticed at first -- and for a very good reason. When the time comes, you'll be recognized for your accomplishments, surely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You will want to come to some kind of consensus this week with those who are usually on the other side of a certain ideological argument. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be unusually stubborn this week and less interested in someone else's progress than your own. A change of heart later on has you back on track where a friend is concerned.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're sure to ask many questions this week, and there are those who are more than willing to provide answers. Work together to solve a problem. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- What you do this week can serve others quite well, even while you are tending to an important personal issue. You needn't be exclusive in your thinking or behavior.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can do much this week in tandem with another, but you must expect a surprise encounter to throw a wrench in the works at some juncture. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Giving yourself to another in support of a good cause means that you'll be in line to receive something good yourself when the time is right. You must be open to all new eventualities.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You're eager to demonstrate your suitability for a certain job, but you may not be ready to take on the challenge of a lifestyle change just yet. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You are able to observe others in a manner that improves your attitude about your own work habits and overall behavior at home. You're considering making a complex change.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A game of show-and-tell early in the week makes you realize that you are lacking something that could prove valuable to you in many ways. Go after it! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may not be in the mood to do what you are required to do, but this week you'll have to bend to another's will more than once in order to arrange things to your liking.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're likely to run headlong into a new opportunity this week, and though you don't know what it may entail, you will recognize that it is, indeed, for you. (March 6-March 20) -- Someone close to you has a warning regarding an upcoming task -- but you may have the bit between your teeth and be unable to see the danger involved.
