The coming week is likely to develop and progress along two seemingly parallel tracks, each providing individuals with distinct yet related opportunities. There will surely be a lot of novelty this week -- some good, some bad -- and he or she who chooses to learn from all experiences will have a sure advantage over those who resist growth and the natural evolution that comes with acquiring knowledge and skill.
Physical ills may be magnified for some this week, and while that is no fun to look forward to, the fact is that preparation for what may come can alleviate both symptoms and the stress that can accompany them. It's no good at all to make things worse by letting the inevitable get one down. Relaxation and a commitment to wellness are what really matter this week, for they will lead to recovery of mind, body and spirit.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A casual discussion early in the week may have you considering an unusual option with far more seriousness than you have in the past. A change is required. (April 5-April 19) -- You may feel that you are suffering from something that is uniquely your own and unknown to others -- but this week you discover your situation is shared by many.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You are likely to find yourself playing the role of teacher on more than one occasion this week -- and in every instance you'll be learning at the same time. (May 6-May 20) -- You must accept certain facts that you've not been able to face up until now. Your willingness to adjust at this time is in part due to a friend's generosity.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- An obstacle appears only a short time before you encounter it this week, but even that brief warning should be enough to enable you to overcome it. (June 7-June 20) -- Complications must not be made worse by overreacting or guessing about what may have caused them. Work the problem, and don't be distracted by peripheral issues.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Your ability to prioritize will be put to the test this week. It's important for you to separate your wants from your needs and to act accordingly. (July 8-July 22) -- Your problems may be quite small this week, but they also may come to you in bundles at a time -- and that can make things more troubling than they need to be.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A daunting problem is alleviated this week through a process that allows you to learn what you need to know when you need to know it. How fortuitous! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You're going to have to reach out to someone in charge this week and work out a schedule that you can stick to faithfully. He or she is waiting to help solve your problems.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may recognize much of yourself in another's work and realize that he or she is inspired by you. Why not try building a lasting collaboration? (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The positive and the negative are competing for your attention this week, but you have a trick up your sleeve that allows you to circumvent certain stubborn negatives.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Relationships are in the spotlight this week; you may be unable to progress in the professional arena without working on a few key friendships. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can learn much from someone you've mentored in the past. Yes, the teacher is once again the student -- but it's a position you've learned to appreciate.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- What you thought was the least of your worries may become a major concern before you know it this week -- and all because you underestimated it to begin with. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You have many options this week, but they are hidden beneath a mound of illusory suppositions and concerns. It's time for you to deal with things as they really are!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- An unexpected discovery this week means that you're now a member of a very select club -- and this can prove an advantage if you play your cards right. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Information you receive from someone who is in a similar situation proves both encouraging and discouraging -- but how you use it will make all the difference at this time.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Your natural state this week will be one of care and caution -- but on at least one occasion you may be tempted to adopt a devil-may-care approach. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What goes around doesn't always come around -- and this week you're likely to find that you have escaped a certain retribution of sorts that you thought would be unavoidable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may stumble upon a possible solution to a problem this week -- but is it really something you are able to take advantage of at this time? (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- The information you receive about a highly personal issue may at last begin to yield some fruit. Your progress in this area is noticed by family members and friends.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may be under someone's influence this week as you make one or two big decisions that don't sound like you at all. Is this a permanent thing? (March 6-March 20) -- Adjustments you make to your routine this week are likely to have a surprising effect on those around you. This, in turn, will influence what you do in the following days.
