The coming week is likely to put people to the test in many different ways, and those who realize from the outset that success depends upon absolute reliance on instinct and trust shall certainly have much to remember, rejoice about and remark upon as the week comes to a close. Some will be required to venture into unfamiliar territory this week, but there is little to fear from the unknown at this time.
Some are likely to find that progress can be swift at first this week, but it could be followed by a slowdown that leads to frustration and, perhaps, surrender to circumstances that seem to be too much to overcome. This may only be a misperception -- but such misperceptions can overtake reality on numerous occasions this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are eager to take your place at the front of the line, and you can do so this week, provided you have taken care of some old business that can be set aside. (April 5-April 19) -- A friend or loved one helps you make a decision that proves fortuitous each and every day that follows. You can lay your hands on what you want this week, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You want more than you've been promised, but you'll have to go after it in a way that is more sensitive than aggressive. Negotiations prove tricky this week. (May 6-May 20) -- The path you take to your chosen destination may be full of twists and turns this week, but it is the most direct that is available to you. Take necessary precautions.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may want to explore all directions this week before determining which road you will take for the duration. You have room to experiment, surely. (June 7-June 20) -- Give what you can to another this week; you'll be in line to receive what is rightfully yours when the time comes. Such fair play benefits everyone in your circle.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You'll want to keep moving this week, as standing still -- literally or figuratively -- can only lead to a dangerous kind of frustration you must avoid. (July 8-July 22) -- You don't want to be caught red-handed this week, so you must avoid the kinds of temptations that threaten to get you into hot water. The rules are there for a reason, after all!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You must seek out the things you will respond most favorably to this week, as they're not likely to be presented to you out of the blue by anyone you know. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- It's simple enough to put the finishing touches on one or two projects that have reached their maturity, but it may be quite difficult to start something new this week.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You are eager to get away from the kinds of things that are moving you further from yourself. A friend has advice you may want to take -- when ready. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may want to put yourself in the care of someone who seems to know what you're going through -- but be careful that you don't sacrifice too much of your autonomy.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have doubts about your own abilities at this time, but circumstances allow you to prove yourself in small but important ways, one step at a time. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Pay attention to how those around you react to each other this week; what you learn will afford you a great deal more freedom when it's time for you to "cut loose" in some way.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may be slowed down by forces that are beyond your control -- at first. Later this week you'll realize you've let another wrest control from you unnecessarily. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Facts and figures will prove essential to progress this week, but they are not going to be easy to keep in the proper order. You must engage your mind at all times.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- The physical may give way to the intellectual or emotional for a time this week, proving once and for all that these separate forces are closely linked. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The difference between action and reaction will become quite clear to you today. You'll have the chance to do what is necessary at exactly the right moment -- twice!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You can reign supreme this week, but not over those whose lives do not touch your own. For those who know you, you'll surely be in charge much of the time. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be feeling a little overconfident as the week opens, but you're not likely to know that until circumstances, and a good friend, make it abundantly clear.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Communication with one younger than you will make you realize that your week is actually progressing very much as planned. It's good to keep in touch! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You will want to reveal something about yourself to someone who doesn't know you all that well -- yet. Once you do, the relationship grows by leaps and bounds.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Your understanding of a certain difficult topic will enable others to get more done this week than expected -- and you can keep pace, surely. (March 6-March 20) -- You don't want to be interrupted this week, but if you are, you can minimize any negative effects by giving the interruption just the attention it requires at the time -- and no more!
