The coming week is likely to see a great many individuals express concern about one of many current circumstances that likely dictate how things shall be done -- and when and with whom. Now is not the time to rebel, for both the immediate and the long-term effects of breaking out of the current mold will, like ripples on a pond, affect everyone eventually -- and who wants to be responsible for that? This week all will want to stick to the game plan, for it seems to be working -- despite any frustrations that may result from imposed restrictions.
Some may regret a lost opportunity, or yearn for one that has not yet appeared -- and such feelings are warranted this week, surely. Still, there has rarely been a better time to embrace the old adage that reminds everyone that "we're all in this together."
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You must not overdo it this week, lest you find yourself unable to face a certain challenge that you know is fast approaching. You must ready yourself. (April 5-April 19) -- A meeting of the minds has you wondering if everyone has gone off the deep end. This is the week that you can step up and begin to steer people in the right direction.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You must remember to do something for yourself at regular intervals this week, especially as your workload is increased as you reach out to help someone. (May 6-May 20) -- You should be able to finish more than one project this week -- and what else, really, do you have to do? There are ways in which you can shake up the current routine.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- It's a good week to make plans -- even those that cannot yet be put into motion. Readiness counts for much at this time; you can show others how to prepare. (June 7-June 20) -- Changing circumstances may be hard to anticipate this week, but you're becoming quite adept at going with the flow. Someone challenges you to do things better.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may not be directly involved in another's affairs, but you can still have an impact. When things go back to normal, this will prove a key development. (July 8-July 22) -- Are you racing to keep up, or are you trying to get ahead of the pack? The tactics may be identical, but the fact is that each requires a very different strategy this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can prove your worth in no uncertain terms this week. You are likely to embrace a plan that no one seems willing to go for -- yet. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Certain factors are not likely to change this week, so you must change accordingly in order to make the best of a situation that is not, by any means, ideal. Keep your head up!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can be more present than most this week, and that will allow you to take advantage of situations that others don't interpret as positive. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Now is no time to revert to the old ways of doing things. Handsome rewards come to those who are able to keep looking forward and moving in that direction this week.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may discover unexpected kindness in the face of one whom you considered an enemy as recently as last week. As externals change, so do you. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll stumble upon a new opportunity this week, and though you may not be able to make it pay off just yet, the excitement of recognizing what is possible carries you forward.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- This is a good week for you to reach out to someone who had assumed you were long gone. You've done what you must, and now you can reconnect. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Doubt is replaced by certainty, questions by answers this week. Still, you must address challenges one at a time. Give someone the chance that no one else is willing to provide.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- A friend or loved one may misinterpret your intentions this week. You can make it clear that nothing about your feelings has changed in the slightest. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Success comes to you this week incrementally; you mustn't expect things to happen all at once. You may find yourself in a position of authority before the week is out.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You must be willing to follow the rules this week, if not for yourself, then for someone who is depending on your good judgment for his or her own safety. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can use the current situation very much to your advantage this week, though you must first be able to spot a "hidden" opportunity. You know what's expected of you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may find yourself wishing that things would go back to the way they were -- but is that even possible? Waste no more time yearning for the past. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Time spent on your own work allows you to maintain the status quo, but time spent helping with someone else's will give you the chance to forge a brighter future for both of you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You're likely to find that one benefit of doing things a certain way this week is that you will be saving money -- but when can you start spending again? (March 6-March 20) -- You'll find a great deal of meaning in little things that may not have mattered much in recent weeks. A loved one helps you shed outdated and unhealthy preconceived notions.
