The coming week is likely to require of a great many individuals a rare kind of flexibility which, in turn, allows one to maneuver quickly and adopt new methods that prove immediately more suitable to rapidly shifting circumstances than any that are considered tried and true. It will be extremely important for everyone to collect as much accurate, up-to-the-minute information as possible before making decisions that can prove difficult to change or committing to anything that might present unnecessary or otherwise avoidable hazards.
Many discover great value in finding something -- anything -- to smile about this week, and a smile can surely work wonders when the overall mood deteriorates because of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. A desire for things to "go back to normal" is soon to be fulfilled.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are eager to increase your comfort level at home or at the workplace, but much will depend on how successful you are at soliciting cooperation. (April 5-April 19) -- You have much in common with those who are making their voices heard at this time -- so why not join them? You have little to lose and much to gain by playing along.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Focus on the details this week. You'll be able to make things happen even when others are confounded by circumstances beyond their control. (May 6-May 20) -- Friends and family at great distances at this time can still provide you with the inspiration and encouragement you need. You have every reason to keep communication lines open.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- If you find yourself in unfamiliar territory this week, you will find comfort in knowing others are in the same situation. Why not seek them out? (June 7-June 20) -- The more you are willing to try this week, the more you will find what works for you. You are able to convince those around you of the righteousness of your cause.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Your routine serves you well this week, though you must find the time to make one or two new plans with a partner who has had enough of the way things are. (July 8-July 22) -- You can lay the groundwork for something quite important, though you may not know just when you'll be able to build upon that foundation. You're in a kind of limbo.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You aren't likely to solve the week's problems by thinking about them in a linear fashion; you must be willing to go where your instincts lead you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A little improvisation can soon amount to much that you'll be able to celebrate when the time comes. For now, however, you'll want to rely on a more conservative approach.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Err on the side of caution this week, and encourage those around you to do the same. The time will come, and soon perhaps, when you can finally cut loose. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You are made to realize just what you've been overlooking recently. A friend makes clear that he or she simply can't hang on any longer with things the way they are.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Those in charge may challenge you to do more than you had bargained for -- and who's to benefit, ultimately? Be sure you're not shortchanging yourself. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll have to rely on a few new methods this week even as you try to do that which borrows much from the past. The new and the old combine in unusual ways at this time.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You'll want to study any and all forecasts with great care this week -- including this one -- so that you aren't left out in the cold in a time of trouble. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Many have what you want, but they're not likely to share with you -- at least not yet. You're going to have to work on a new way to include yourself in their circle.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Doing what you are told this week is likely the only way you can avoid a setback that could prove quite damaging to your overall master plan. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A shock early in the week has you doing things in a new way -- and including others in ways that you had not imagined as recently as a few days ago. Collaborate!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You are pulled this way and that this week by those who offer contradictory information. You must stabilize yourself until you know what's going on. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You encounter those who are dead set against anything that seems to be in line with the way things are supposed to go. Is it time to join forces with such rebels?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The earlier you get in on what is happening, the better equipped you'll be to make changes when changes are required. You want to be at the center of things. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Those who know you well may find your commitment to an unusual cause admirable -- but few will be willing to join you in your efforts. Don't be discouraged.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You are doing everything you can to keep chaos at bay at this time, but there are those who will be working against you simply for the fun of it. Be ready. (March 6-March 20) -- Some will find a new set of rules and regulations suitable to their own circumstances, but you're likely to bristle at what seem like undue restrictions.
