The coming week is likely to require a great deal of introspection from those individuals who recognize the true value of the opportunities before them, while those who are simply going through the motions or grasping at straws this week are likely to overlook any such opportunity to examine themselves in any real depth at all. To overlook such a chance is truly unfortunate this week, for the reward for being honest, insightful and uncompromising can be great.
Those who feel they have been at some kind of disadvantage leading up to this week will discover, now, that they are actually riding a wave of accomplishment -- and that the little things are certain to add up to something quite remarkable and memorable at this time.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Regardless of what your routine may have been in the past, this week you're going to have to do a certain thing in a brand-new way. You'll get through it! (April 5-April 19) -- Someone may accuse you of doing something repeatedly that you were not even aware you had been doing. Once this is made clear, you're able to mend your ways, surely.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're ready to take the first step in a new and exciting direction this week -- but when you take it may be dictated by forces beyond your control. (May 6-May 20) -- You've been working according to a major misconception recently, and somewhere toward midweek you'll make a discovery that turns things around. You'll have some people to thank.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You're likely to run into someone whose input changes much for you this week -- though you will want to hang on to certain "constants" that keep you balanced. (June 7-June 20) -- You may have to work much faster this week than usual if you're going to fit everything in. Make time for someone's unique problem that warrants close attention.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- This is no time for you to insist on everyone following in your footsteps. Rather, you're sure to benefit greatly by following in someone else's. (July 8-July 22) -- You may be frustrated as the week opens because of the sense that no decision you've made lately has led you where you most want to go. A loved one helps you see things clearly.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Someone likely has more confidence in you than you do in yourself, and this week that's going to make a big difference in how you go about your affairs. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- The more you protest against something you feel is unjust, the more likely it will be that others will turn against you. Choose your words carefully -- and speak out just once.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- There will be so much going on around you this week that you'll surely be able to use at least some of it as inspiration. A big payoff may be near at hand. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- How you feel about someone who has recently gotten closer to you than ever before is likely to complicate matters this week -- but not in the way you may have feared.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be "directionally challenged" at some point this week, and you must be willing to reach out to someone who can keep you from going off course. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The more you share your genuine thoughts and feelings with those in your care this week, the closer you'll come to discovering a talent that's been hidden away too long.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- This is a good week for reviving something you may have thought had passed into memory forever. Work closely with a friend in order to make anything happen. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're likely to reach the halfway point of a journey you've been on for quite some time. Signs and other indicators of progress have only just now started to appear.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You mustn't take things too literally or you're sure to fall victim to those who are trying to deceive you. Much is a matter of interpretation this week. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A few moments of casual conversation early in the week set you off on a journey of discovery. By week's end, you may consider yourself a very different person in some ways.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have trouble making yourself understood during the first part of the week, until you realize that you've been coming at things from the wrong angle. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You will have a chance this week to explore some of the "big questions" that have been coming up recently. It's a good week to shed fears and see what's really going on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You have something that someone wants, but you're not willing to let go of it without some very careful negotiation. You only want what you feel is fair. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You've been dealing in theories of late, but this week you're likely to get things done only if you are willing to dig into specifics. Don't let others distract you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Take care this week to avoid being so eager to demonstrate your strengths that you inadvertently expose your weaknesses. You're being watched. (March 6-March 20) -- Your only choice this week may be to approach something indirectly -- but know that by taking the long way you may be able to take in some surprise pleasures.
