The coming week is likely to see each and every individual challenged in a way that requires a wholehearted search for creative solutions -- and indeed, that one word "creative" will make all the difference! No one should be defining this term in a narrow manner at this time, and almost every task, endeavor, job or career demands that one be creative in order to succeed. This week that general rule becomes a simple reality: Creativity can surely enable one to succeed at this time.
All must realize that while practice may not make perfect, it can certainly render the road ahead more passable -- and everyone, after all, is able to learn, change and improve!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- That which was separate is likely to come together this week -- and you'll no longer be burdened by something that cannot be effectively tamed. (April 5-April 19) -- It's better to have a single goal this week than to try to do too much and succeed at nothing. You know what you really want to do, so focus on that and get it done!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Someone may be trying to pressure you into doing something you know shouldn't be done -- at least not by you. Only true presence of mind can keep you safe. (May 6-May 20) -- You're going to have to keep up with those around you this week, and doing so will require you to dig deep into your personal toolbox -- and, also, to be honest with yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You can see where the road is leading, but you may not want to continue moving so fast toward that destination. Take time out for some personal reflection. (June 7-June 20) -- Your unorthodox "take" on a certain situation is likely to attract a great deal of attention -- and you can certainly parlay that into an important and lasting success.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Questions of faith may arise with alarming frequency this week, but you're well-equipped to address them openly and honestly. A reward comes your way. (July 8-July 22) -- You may wish to get back to where you started at some point this week, but you must be sure that by looking back you're not shortchanging your future in any way.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- The words of a teacher or mentor echo in your head this week, inspiring you to do something that you've waited too long to do. Express your gratitude! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to retreat from a highly charged situation this week, so you must prepare yourself to engage in something of a battle. You come up with a sound strategy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Emotions are likely to run high throughout the week, and you may want to steer clear of other Virgo natives as a result. A Cancerian offers welcome relief. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You'll want to stick with tried-and-true methods this week, no matter what the overall process you adopt may require. Doing it your way can surely pay off handsomely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You receive something of a shock early in the week, and you must be willing to take the time you need to shake it off. This requires some keen understanding. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You know what you need, and you know where you may find it -- but getting there and getting your hands on it may take more time than you think you have. Get started now!
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that going back on your word will be forgiven. It won't, and doing so can only damage your reputation. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- This week you may be called upon to play someone else's part in a drama that is unfolding in the professional arena. Your way is the best way -- for now, at least.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll have trouble determining as the week opens just which direction is best for you at this time. See what others are doing, and follow suit. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A simple recollection early in the week may have you changing your plans and methods dramatically in preparation for a reunion of sorts. Put your best foot forward.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll feel pressure as the week opens, and much of what you do will serve to lighten the load as much as possible. Why not make a concrete plan? (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Messages passed back and forth are likely to mean much more as the week comes to a close than they do at the beginning. The dawning of the new year motivates you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Take care that you don't overindulge this week. You have a great deal to do, and you must play your game at the highest possible level. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You mustn't shrink from a challenge this week. Keep your eyes on the prize, and don't let anyone tell you that you don't have what it takes. Momentum builds swiftly, day by day.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll want to be sure that what you say is heard -- and that those who hear it react accordingly. The responsibility here lies squarely with you, of course. (March 6-March 20) -- You're likely to get nowhere this week if you take your ideas to the wrong people, whereas the right people can lead you directly to the threshold of success.
