The coming week is likely to present a number of situations, both expected and unexpected, that invite a new level of creativity from those who do not usually consider creativity to be a key component of their daily activities -- and yet at this time, such creativity is sure to make all the difference in the world. Those for whom creativity is already very much a part of who they are will find that there are plenty of opportunities this week to assist others -- to teach, guide and encourage.
Relationships that are not usually in the spotlight are likely to get a great deal of attention this week -- or at least warrant such attention. Little things are sure to happen all week long that will have a big impact on each and every individual who is able to make a commitment to progress.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- An open, honest approach is usually best, but this week you may feel unusually guarded -- and that's going to affect how you talk about things. (April 5-April 19) -- You're more than willing to go the extra mile this week for someone whose needs are in sync with your own. You can come up with a new plan that surprises everyone involved.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A plan comes to fruition this week, but that may leave you with nothing to look forward to -- until you come up with something new and even more exciting. (May 6-May 20) -- Your responsibilities are multiplying this week, but you must still find time for friends or loved ones to whom you have made a certain promise. Don't back out!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You are past the phase that requires you to do things by the book, and this week you'll be able to experiment far more freely -- and enjoy the results. (June 7-June 20) -- Someone with whom you've worked very closely of late is likely to lean on you in a way that takes you by surprise. Something may be developing faster than expected.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Others adopt an unusual idea this week, and all you have to do is sit back and watch it yield all the benefits you had promised. (June 7-June 20) -- Others are more than willing to follow your instructions this week, but you must also be willing to do as you are told when the time comes. This will not be negotiable.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can maximize your rewards this week without limiting what others can enjoy at the same time. Indeed, everyone around you can benefit greatly. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- When someone comes to you for advice or counsel, give it -- for you will learn something about yourself in the process and discover a new opportunity waiting for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may have trouble getting started this week, but once you do, you'll be able to move along at a rather startling pace. The competition cannot keep up. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The course of action you are considering may not be advisable this week -- but if you put it off until next week, the likelihood of success will increase exponentially.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Someone wants to make a deal with you, but you're not ready to make that kind of commitment. You are still working very hard on an important solo project. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The reviews are in, and there are few who do not see the value in what you are doing at this time. Throughout the week, you'll be able to touch people in memorable ways.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You're sure to receive numerous warnings this week, but you've got the bit between your teeth, and you're not likely to stop until you've hit the jackpot. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may be trying to serve too many masters at one time. This week, make firm decisions about what you can and cannot do, and stick to them. Don't make too many promises.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're likely to be pushed into something that you fear at first, but later on you'll realize this is a golden opportunity you cannot pass up. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may begin the week on unstable footing, but as midweek approaches, you'll feel more confident and capable -- personally and professionally. Go the distance.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll have a chance to send someone in a new direction this week -- and as a result, you may consider trying something novel when you have the opportunity. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Once you focus on explicit needs, the week will take shape very nicely. The more honest and direct you can be with yourself and others, the better -- in almost all matters.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to mount a rather aggressive campaign this week in order to get what you want from those who have been reluctant to cooperate in the past. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Don't forget what you have promised this week! You may have to be reminded of all that you've sworn to do, but once you get started, everything is likely to fall into place.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may not feel very enthusiastic about helping a certain someone -- at first. Later in the week you will be on board as your own gains become clear. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be seeing things very differently this week, and as a result, you may feel differently about certain people with whom you regularly interact. Be fair!
