The coming week is likely to present a great many opportunities for the eager and motivated to take strong, decisive action -- and this will require more energy, fortitude and foresight than may have been required in the recent past. There are those who do well simply drifting along, letting their course be determined by the current; this week, such an approach is not to be endured, for it will only lead to disappointment if one lets such inertia take hold.
Now is no time to be burdened by trivial issues, for they will only serve to distract from the things that must be addressed -- or, more importantly, the things that must be done. There is some value to talk, certainly, but there is far more to action -- and swift, decisive action is the name of the game this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Expose yourself to new things this week, and you'll surely be inspired to move in a new direction -- which will please those tasked with teaching you. (April 5-April 19) -- You must take all the time you have available to you this week to ensure that a certain family situation is resolved before anyone heads off on his or her own.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Pay attention to all signs and indicators this week. Some may offer warnings that will likely seem old and familiar, but a new opportunity beckons. (May 6-May 20) -- Focus on what is going on within you this week. Internal rhythms, shifts and upsets will make themselves known only if you connect the dots between feeling and doing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Something you've been fearing would happen at any time is likely to happen this week, but it's not going to be as bad as you thought. Keep looking ahead. (June 7-June 20) -- Someone who has been trying to get you to reckon with the past will be disappointed this week as you dedicate yourself to the future in a new and exciting way.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Don't shy away from promoting your own agenda this week; success depends on attracting the right support from the right crowd in the right way. (July 8-July 22) -- Enthusiasm for a certain endeavor may be waning this week, but fortunately, there are many alternatives that hold you in thrall. One in particular offers profit.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- The more you learn about a particular subject this week, the more you'll be able to do when someone provides you with an unusual opportunity. Be ready! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A sheepish approach to a tricky situation is not recommended this week -- nor must you tolerate it from anyone. Now is the time for some bold, decisive action.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Your energy may wax and wane throughout the week until you recognize a certain opportunity that seems made for you. Then you'll be raring to go! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Many want to get in touch with you this week, but only some know how to get through to you. There's a difference; you'll want to help only a certain few.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have to work harder than expected this week to keep things separate and identifiable. You can't afford to confuse one thing with another right now. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- What you are told as the week opens isn't likely to come to pass as expected, but throughout the week you should be able to keep abreast of all essential developments.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You'll have more energy than expected this week -- but the trick will be picking just the right project in which to apply it. One or two stand out. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Inspiration comes to you this week in a very unusual form. Others may not see it or understand why you are doing what you are doing, but you have all the answers you need.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Someone is likely to tell you that the possibilities are endless -- but you know better this week. Don't let someone make the decisions for you. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You have some information that could prove a powerful elixir if delivered to the right person at the right time. Don't second-guess yourself; you know what's what!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Productivity is the key to success this week, but it's likely to come in one or two unusual forms. Doing what you usually do isn't going to be enough. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You cannot afford to have your reputation tarnished by someone who doesn't even know what is at stake this week. You can and must be considered reliable by those in charge.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll feel an unusual amount of pressure from someone who is trying to push you into something you cannot afford to get involved with at this time. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You'll do well this week provided you stick to the things you know how to do. When you step out of your comfort zone, you may be risking more than you have to lose.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You don't necessarily want to stay where you are this week, and yet the means to travel may not be readily available to you. A friend solves this problem. (March 6-March 20) -- You are likely to enjoy more personal satisfaction this week after you do something that others have refused to do. This amounts to a victory for you and you alone.
