The coming week is likely to test most individuals in a way that will require a carefully balanced combination of hard facts and blind faith, and even the slightest tipping of the scales one way or the other may spell failure, hardship or disappointment instead of success, reward and contentment. One of many dangers this week is that the more one has on the line, the less clear will be the trial that must be endured.
Some may sense that a clash of personalities is far more likely now than it has been in recent weeks, and any such feeling must be respected, and steps must be taken to avoid such an interaction. That kind of conflict will only serve to get in the way of what really must be done.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll be able to do something this week that highlights your connection to a time gone by. Take care, however, that you don't get lost in your memories. (April 5-April 19) -- Stories shared this week with friends or loved ones will prove inspiring to you in many ways. You may find yourself off on a new adventure before the week is out.
TAURUS (April 2-May 5) -- You must be sure to keep your wits about you this week, as there are many dangers to be avoided and some awkward situations to be navigated as well. (May 6-May 20) -- The easier you can make things look this week, the better. You will find yourself leading others through difficult territory, perhaps, and you must inspire confidence in all.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- A game may go wrong this week, perhaps, leaving you with no one to play with and no gains to speak of -- for now. You learn some valuable lessons! (June 7-June 20) -- It's a good time to pay attention to what those around you are doing, especially when their methods differ from your own. You can benefit from trying something new.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Getting things done one right after the other seems like a good plan, but it may be more difficult to follow than to devise. You face many obstacles. (July 8-July 22) -- Someone's rather harsh response to you takes you very much by surprise, and you'll find yourself off balance throughout much of the week because of this odd exchange.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're going to want to collect as much updated information as you can this week -- and it's going to take some time. Don't be in a rush to get the answers. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You have many options to consider this week as you begin to move from one outdated phase to one that is new, exciting and ripe with potential. This can be a very good week!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can capitalize this week on last week's mistakes, provided you are forward-thinking and don't get trapped in a pattern of old, habitual behavior. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Pay attention to the order of things this week, as that will tell you a lot about what's possible when it's your turn to take action. Arrange priorities now!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may have thought that the week would require a good deal of heavy lifting, but not so. Instead, you'll take care of the little things one at a time. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be judged harshly as the week opens, but later on you'll earn someone's trust, and your reputation will be greatly enhanced. There is much to learn this week.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The more you try to do this week, the more you'll find yourself in the midst of affairs that will shape your immediate future. How much of that can you take? (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The good and the bad will come at you in much the same ways this week, and you'll be required to interpret things correctly. You cannot afford a mistake at this time.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Take time out this week to stop what you are doing and look around at all that you are a part of. You'll realize just how much you contribute. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A message from afar gives you a boost as the week opens -- unless, of course, this is something you are merely interpreting a certain way to suit your current needs.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- That which was uncertain only a few days ago will be much more solidly defined this week. You'll be able to send others in the right direction, surely. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Take care that you don't let yourself go on and on and on this week; efficiency of expression is vastly important, and you'll want to choose your words with great care.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- A dark situation is brightened this week -- but you may not know exactly how it happened or who is responsible. You can surely take advantage of it, however! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- As busy as you may be taking care of others this week, you must not forget to take care of yourself as well. You can only be effective if you are running at peak efficiency.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- It's a good week to make a habit of telling people how much they mean to you -- and why, though this last bit will be more difficult to define, surely. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be tempted to hunker down at home and avoid interacting with the outside world, but something happens midweek that draws you out, albeit perhaps reluctantly.
