The coming week is likely to come together in a manner that surprises many individuals, as the ratio of the intentional to the random or accidental is likely to seem quite unusual. The truth is that there is nothing unusual going on at all, but that individuals are, for a variety of reasons, simply more attuned to whether or not the events of the week are being presented in a structured or willy-nilly fashion.
The age-old conflict between the "artistic" and the "realistic" is likely to heat up this week -- but only because of a misunderstanding based on semantics. Indeed, perhaps it is best to use words like "creative" and "practical" instead, for these allow for fewer differences in interpretation and use.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be hoping that things get back to basics this week, but you may be disappointed when certain trends do not satisfy this deep-seated want. Hang on tight! (April 5-April 19) -- Issues demand a greater level of understanding this week if you're going to remain on top. You mustn't act without knowing why -- and what the impact will be.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A conflict arises this week that requires you to look at things from a very different point of view. What you learn allows you to rise above the fray. (May 6-May 20) -- You may spend a great deal of time this week helping others understand certain issues more concretely. You, too, come to a greater understanding of what matters most to you.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may find yourself in an awkward situation simply because you didn't pay attention to what was happening as it developed. Be more in tune! (June 7-June 20) -- A difference of opinion is really more of a difference in style and perspective. Ultimately, it may be proved that one of you is right and one is wrong.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're likely to do more this week simply because you cannot allow yourself to be overshadowed by someone. Any such motivation is a good thing -- for now. (July 8-July 22) -- You may be tempted to call it quits with regard to a certain endeavor -- but where will that leave you when it's time to fill the void? This may be your best shot!
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Self-awareness is likely to be the prime issue in your life throughout this complex week. It matters not what others say; what you think and feel are the key! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You must use your time wisely this week and not let anyone else tell you that you were better off doing this or that. What doesn't come naturally is certainly not for you.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may have trouble separating fact from fiction during the first part of the week. Later, after events play out, you'll see what is real. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may be tempted to take a certain action this week merely for the reaction it is likely to get -- but you'll soon find it isn't effective. Do what you know is right.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be in an emotional rut as the week opens, but the actions of a friend help get you back on the road to real contentment -- and accomplishment, too. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to be impressed by what someone is able to do this week -- and with so little, to boot! You may want to try to adopt his or her strategy and tactics.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You can shake things up this week very effectively. Your intentions must be crystal clear to you, however -- even though you needn't share them with anyone. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- It shouldn't take much for you to get from here to there this week. Regardless of your destination, the task of getting moving will be very much the same overall.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- An important change is in the making this week, and you will have to make the decision to support it or fight against it. You can't have it both ways. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Others may enjoy several chances to get things right this week, but you have a hunch that the first chance you get may be the only chance -- and you're correct!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You shouldn't have trouble adapting to new rules this week, as you are, by nature, one of those who does things the "right" way from the outset. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Your instincts are keen this week, and you'll seem to know what makes others tick. You can use this to your advantage, surely -- but you mustn't treat anyone unfairly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- There's no shame in bringing up the rear this week. You can learn a great deal from what goes on up ahead of you -- and you'll be ready to lead, in turn. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- The adjustments you make this week may not be understood by others until you are able to demonstrate a clear purpose -- and that will be possible only toward the weekend.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- A demonstration of both skill and attitude will propel you forward at an accelerated rate this week. You cannot have it all -- but you can have a lot! (March 6-March 20) -- The loyalty you inspire in others will make a great deal of difference to you and anyone who jumps on your bandwagon. You have a lot going on and can score a big win.
