The coming week is likely to see the vast majority of individuals dealing with certain situations that, while not entirely surprising, may still have caught many unawares and unready for what is required -- personally or professionally. Much that goes on this week is going to have an emotional component that is going to demand much of individuals alone and in tandem with others -- but it's likely that cooperative projects will actually prove easier to navigate than solo efforts.
Some may find it very difficult to avoid having a rather bleak outlook this week, for there are sure to be things going wrong at every turn -- large or small. This doesn't have to be the controlling element of the week, however -- and it shouldn't be!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- What in the past proved a liability is likely this week to be an advantage, but only because you are able to maneuver in just the right ways. (April 5-April 19) -- The unavoidable is just that, so you will want to address it as soon as you can this week. Once that duty is done, you should be free to do as much as you please.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You mustn't turn away from those who are coming to you for help. You never know when you'll need what they can supply at some later date. Think ahead! (May 6-May 20) -- You're tempted to do the very thing that you know will get you into hot water -- but why? This week, you may discover something about yourself that you don't necessarily like.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- How you begin the week will make all the difference -- but you may be tempted to "give in" prematurely. Be strong, stay the course and succeed! (June 7-June 20) -- You may look upon someone differently this week who has been by your side for the duration. Now is a good time to explore the possibilities when you include him or her even more.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can work with uncertainty this week; it's outright negativity that you cannot abide. You must be willing to address such a problem head-on. (July 8-July 22) -- There will be plenty of signs and signals to observe and interpret this week. Are you willing to face a situation that requires you to strip yourself of anything artificial?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may find that someone's help is really no help at all -- at least to begin with. After you work together, some improvements can be made. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Things are changing quite rapidly all around you this week, and you may feel as though there is little you can do in response. This is an error, and you must get moving now!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Something that has been perfectly enjoyable in the past may prove rather difficult this week -- and your surprise will be evident in your continued reaction. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You receive inspiration from the most unusual sources this week. Your own performance when under pressure will prove an inspiration to others, in turn.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll come to terms with a recent disappointment this week, and that will allow you to move ahead with something that has a much greater chance of success. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Two very distinct phases are likely to overlap this week -- or even, perhaps, collide outright. You must take the time to sort through all key personal issues.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may feel as though you are being sabotaged by one who wants what you have -- but isn't this really a case of your own insecurity standing in your way? (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll understand more than most just exactly what you need right now -- though it may be hard to come by. Others are in the same boat, and perhaps you can collaborate.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be expecting things to slow down because of external forces beyond your control, but you can keep the pace crackling through sheer force of will. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're eager to settle back into an old familiar routine this week, but that simple pleasure may be denied you by someone who affects you in more ways than one.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have the chance to relive a past glory -- but in order to do so fully, you may also have to suffer through a repeat of a recent disappointment. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- The week progresses very much according to plan -- that is, if you have a plan! It's of utmost importance that you consider all possibilities as you plot your next moves.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You have set your sights on something that simply may not be available to you this week. You can make adjustments and enjoy what you are able to do. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to demonstrate to others what it is you are really capable of accomplishing -- and while this may not be a good week to do that, it's a good week to plan for it.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may find that what you have to say resonates with others on a much more significant level than at any time in the past. Your audience is likely to grow. (March 6-March 20) -- You may have trouble communicating with those who know you best -- and that's why, no doubt. They are able to see through any insecurities, so you must be strong!
