The coming week is likely to progress according to a seeming set of "rules" that are at first incomprehensible to most, but for those who are willing to explore trends with great care, all will make perfect sense -- and allow momentum of a kind that few have enjoyed before. A balance between thought and action will prove quite important this week; anyone who chooses either to withdraw into his or her own mind or simply bash about without any planning or intention will surely have a hard time of it -- and risks endangering others as well.
Questions can be answered almost as quickly as they are raised this week -- but not by everyone, to be sure. This means, of course, that anyone who is able to deliver up information quickly and accurately will find his or her popularity increased exponentially.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Stick to the plan this week, and you'll surely arrive at your destination on time -- and perhaps under budget as well. A critic may raise important questions. (April 5-April 19) -- Confidence is on the rise at this time, but the faster you move forward, the more likely you will be to encounter resistance. Apply your intellect to a new problem.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Someone may be acting as though you cannot handle certain things on your own. This may be something worth talking about, whether or not it is true. (May 6-May 20) -- You're eager to be considered "normal," but you also don't want to be just like everyone else. This dilemma is easily solved: Be yourself, and the week will be a success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Whether you find yourself in a supporting role or in the spotlight, your efforts will make the difference between success and failure. Others approve. (June 7-June 20) -- You've enjoyed an active phase marked by success in two or three separate areas of your daily life; this week, you make a discovery that accelerates your progress.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Someone tries to get in touch with you about an important personal issue, but you're not having any of it. This may soon prove to be an error. (July 8-July 22) -- You should be able to transition from something difficult to something much simpler with relative ease this week -- provided you've laid the groundwork and keep up your momentum.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll be called upon to explain yourself on at least one, if not two, occasions this week. Don't get defensive! It's likely this is just a "formality." (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Just when you think you've done everything to promote a certain project, you'll realize that the most important step has yet to be completed. Get it done!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You mustn't try to force any changes this week; let them occur naturally, and they are sure to "stick." Others want to make things work just as you do. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You can learn an important lesson this week, even as you increase your own enjoyment level. Not everything has to be painful, surely. Invite a friend to join you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Your complaints about the way things have been going may have fallen on deaf ears, so this week you're the one who must make any necessary changes. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- It's a good week to revisit a past event in order to come to a new understanding of the importance it has right now. Your ability to make connections comes in very handy.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- If you're going to take charge, you must be ready and willing to say what must be said, no matter how much it may upset some of those around you. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may discover that what you've been doing for quite some time has not been having the desired effect. This week you're able to begin moving in a whole new direction.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- The more willing you are to address certain problems head-on, the more likely others will be willing to follow you when the time comes. This is essential! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- If you find yourself in charge of others, you'll want to balance being friendly with being businesslike. Those working with you will understand what you are doing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are likely to uncover a hidden opportunity early in the week; the remaining days must be devoted to charting a strong course of action for yourself. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be called upon to investigate certain happenings that others do not understand. Are you willing to face certain fears? It's a necessary part of the job!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Just because you are ready to put a plan into motion doesn't mean you're the only one -- or that your plan is best. Others will want to shop around. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You've been following another's advice for quite some time now, with no appreciable results. Perhaps it's time to acknowledge that this isn't something you should keep doing.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can share much that is special with others this week; the feeling you get from doing so will surely last as long as your generosity does. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll recognize in another a kindred spirit; this week, that means that you'll no longer have to do certain things entirely on your own. Collaborative efforts pay off for both.
