The coming week will see a great many individuals working hard to “fill in the blanks” in some way, in order to further their own individual agendas and complete assignments on time while maintaining high quality. What this means, of course, is that progress will be anything but routine, as there will be much exploration, examination and investigation required by each individual in order to acquire the information necessary to move from point A to point B this week -- or beyond. Indeed, those who know how to look beneath the surface and “interpret” what they find will have a marked advantage this week over those who simply take what they see at face value -- for the latter will be dealing only with what is already known, while a broadening of one’s base of knowledge will surely be an essential component of success at this time. Now is no time to fear the unknown; it is, rather, a time to demystify it!
Choices Decisions made this week are likely to have long-term consequences, both for those who make them and those who are affected by them even in some minor, tenuous or peripheral manner. All who flex their muscles this week must be aware that they do not do so in a vacuum; their activities will surely have ramifications far beyond each measurable moment. Connections of all kinds will prove enriching to many this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may find yourself waiting for something or someone essential to your immediate plans, but you can’t waste the entire week. Get the rest in place! (April 5-April 19) -- You may feel as though you have quite an obstacle to surmount, but with the help of your inner circle, you’ll surely get over it -- and exceed your own expectations, too.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Things will seem piled up as the week opens, but as soon as you start working through major issues, you’ll find that you can stay ahead of the game. (May 6-May 20) -- What you see isn’t at all what you get this week, but that doesn’t mean it can’t, in the end, serve you better than what you were expecting or even what you mistakenly saw.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Just when you think all is lost this week, you’ll stumble upon an opportunity that allows you to revive even those efforts that you gave up long ago. Celebrate! (June 7-June 20) -- A teammate may not know how to tell you what you need to hear, so you must make it easy for him or her. By week’s end, you’ll both be overcoming the same key obstacle.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can use a little entertainment this week, even as you work hard to provide it for others. A surprise is in store, courtesy of an old friend. (July 8-July 22) -- Focus is key this week, and your ability to sustain a heightened effort will prove essential. What goes around comes around -- but you can turn it to your advantage.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Though you may be showered with praise at some point this week, you are almost sure to realize that you can do even better work, given the chance. Do so! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A friend lets you do something early on this week that sets the tone, but he or she isn’t likely to join you if you carry it any further. This is for you and you alone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- A minor shock wears off just in time for you to put what it teaches you to good use. There are many around you who will wonder at what you are able to do. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to insist that your way is the only way. Explore other options, and listen when other people offer suggestions. What you learn can save the day!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A little indulgence never hurt anyone, and this week you’ll have the chance to indulge in just the right way. Take care not to overdo it! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your ability to spot the weaknesses in an adversary will surely enable you to move ahead this week. A combination of instinct and clear reasoning will put you where you need to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Place your bets on those things that are familiar to you but far-fetched to others. You’ll have the advantage as you root for an unlikely winner! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Others are not likely to agree with you when it comes to making key choices decisions this week, and going it alone may be your only workable option. You must maintain contact with teammates, however.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Your decisions will affect others -- but that, in itself, is nothing new. What is different this week is how much others are aware of what’s really going on. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may begin the week in an uncomfortable position that affords you no room to maneuver. Later on, you’ll gain some wiggle room, and that will make all the difference.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You have much to learn this week, but if you explore all avenues open to you, you’ll surely gain even more knowledge than expected. Others want in. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be working on something that you are not yet ready to unveil, but you can surely drop hints and send out signals that attract much attention to what you are doing.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be tempted to call it quits this week after an adviser opts out, but you have what it takes to succeed without his or her guidance. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- That which is yours should remain in your possession this week, but that which is not will likely have to be returned to its rightful owner. Attempt no deception.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Shifting alliances cause you some trouble this week, but you can hold your course and make progress even while others hammer out their own differences. (March 6-March 20) -- It may seem as though you are destined to go against the grain this week, but you can make that work well for yourself, if you’re not too aggressive about it.
