The coming week is likely to see a great many people picking up the pace and charging headlong into the future -- but the reasons for this are sure to be as diverse as the individuals themselves who are newly engaged in this seeming race to the finish line. There is no finish line, of course, and anyone who claims otherwise is merely fooling himself or herself -- or trying to fool others.
It will be difficult for many to keep their emotions out of it this week -- especially when it comes to tallying scores for others. It is essential, however, that those who are in any sort of position to determine whether another wins or loses this week must be as objective as possible.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You've been making plans without getting someone's input -- and this week that approach may backfire on you. You must solicit ideas from all participants. (April 5-April 19) -- You are in the mood this week for something a little more adventurous than what the status quo is likely going to offer. A friend points the way -- but dare you follow?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may be thinking that things are resolved, but certain issues are sure to linger this week, requiring you to change your plans to accommodate others. (May 6-May 20) -- You may be tempted to play coy this week, but anything that may seem even a little insincere isn't likely to go over well. You must make your wishes and boundaries known.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Someone is likely to give you a very good reason to stay put this week, when you were on the verge of moving out for quite a while. This is a surprise. (June 7-June 20) -- A friend reaches out early in the week, and in order to be there when you are needed, you must be willing to put a major effort on a back burner. It'll wait, certainly.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You aren't likely to be lonely this week, as there are many who will be drawn into your orbit because of your unique ability to speak their language. (July 8-July 22) -- You may be developing unrealistic expectations at this time. Trust a friend to show you the error in your thinking, and to steer you in the right direction just in time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll be expected to present ideas early in the week that you can be confident will come to life in only a day or two. It's time to make things happen! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can power yourself through this week without much rest -- but when the time comes, you're going to have to take care of yourself, and that will mean turning down some invitations.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Hard work gets you what you want this week -- except the recognition that is, above all, what you most desire. It will come -- but not when you expect it to. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A memory has you shifting gears and doing something very much against the grain this week -- but no criticism will bother you, as you know you're onto something.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Keep your eyes squarely on the prize this week, and it can be yours. A loved one expresses doubt at first, but will be proud of you come the weekend. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your interpretation of the facts separates you from the crowd this week. Something happens that lets others know you mean business and are in it for keeps.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You've been flirting with what others would call "disaster" for some time, but you're in your element this week, working against common wisdom. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Avoid delays of any kind this week -- especially where your health or the health of a loved one may be concerned. You don't want to miss out on any chance to improve your well-being.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You don't want to make any changes to a plan that is working out to your satisfaction. Someone may stand against you, but you're doing well! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A memory serves to enliven you early in the week, and with the snap of your fingers, you can set the tone for the days to come. Confidence needn't come off as cockiness.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You must make sure that things are being addressed in the right order this week -- and that you're in the right mindset to do so. Don't be squeamish. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Just when you thought you were in for more of the same thing this week, someone comes to you with an opportunity to effect a major change. Who are you to resist?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may not be able to move forward this week without first getting the input of someone who followed a similar path in the past. Continuity is everything. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be getting need and desire confused as you deal with a complex emotional issue, but throughout the week you'll uncover several clues to this intricate mystery.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The more you reveal, the more vulnerable you will be this week -- but that may be just fine with you, as you urge others to follow in your footsteps. (March 6-March 20) -- You cannot expect to receive unanimous support this week, as the ideas you are proposing are rather unorthodox. Some might even say you are unhinged!
