The coming week is likely to see many individuals battling against a malaise brought on by uncertainty -- and that uncertainty is likely, in turn, to have been brought on by all manner of circumstances, situations and developments that seem, in and of themselves, to strip each individual of his or her own autonomy and decision-making powers. And that's the difficulty this week!
Frustration is sure to result from repeated contact with partners or teammates who seem unable -- or unwilling -- to look at the big picture and assess the needs of the many rather than the desires of the few. Now is no time to get lost in minutia!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A combination of imagination and technical skill will allow you to come up with a solution to a long-standing problem that wins you almost universal praise. (April 5-April 19) -- You mustn't let yourself be ruled by the frustration you feel as a result of a situation you cannot control. You'll do well as long as you play by the rules.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You've put another's needs ahead of your own for long enough; this is the time for you to concentrate on what is necessary to make progress on your own. (May 6-May 20) -- "Almost" isn't good enough this week. You must be willing to commit yourself to going all the way -- or to moving on to something that promises lasting success.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Where practice may have made perfect in the past, this week it will get you only so far -- and you are likely to decide that it's time to do something else. (June 7-June 20) -- A long-lost friend resurfaces this week, and you'll feel renewed enthusiasm for an endeavor that has recently started to disappoint you in ways both large and small.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You cannot count on a loved one to support you in every endeavor this week, as matters of taste surely come into play. You'll be helped with the big things. (July 8-July 22) -- You mustn't take out your frustrations on your friends this week; what you are feeling has nothing to do with them! Focus on internal signs and signals.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You enjoy a good deal of relief from a difficult situation this week by taking your work outdoors. Indeed, fresh air and a different view work wonders for you! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- While others are bemoaning their own sorry state of affairs, you can move forward despite the many kinds of restrictions that have been imposed on you this week.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may find yourself in charge of an issue that is difficult to define -- but it'll be your job to do just that. Teammates may resist your initial efforts. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A bad habit is best broken early in the week before it can threaten your progress. Keep your eye on the ball, and don't let yourself be driven off course.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may find that it's better to trust a familiar, tried-and-true method than to work to devise something new. You depend on the reactions of others this week. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- It's up to you this week to see that those around you do what is required of them. Make it clear that even one person who breaks the rules risks harm to everyone.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You recognize an attempted deception when you see it this week, and this allows you to avoid a threat that could very well set you back a great deal. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You have the knowledge you need this week to make a plan that can be put into motion very soon. What you don't have, unfortunately, is unlimited physical resources.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You'll have the chance to introduce everyone on your team to something new that can, if accepted and embraced, almost ensure a triumph for all. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Difficulty arises this week as you try to persuade those around you that your way of thinking is the most "current" and effective. A stubborn few insist on challenging you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may find yourself wishing you could be in two very different places at once this week. As this is not possible, be sure to keep communication humming. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A loved one comes to you with a personal problem early in the week, and you find that this is something you not only understand but have gone through yourself.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You won't have the luxury of doing what you want to do this week, but if you play your cards right, you can maximize your rewards doing what is necessary. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You seem to think that everyone sees things the way you do -- but nothing could be further from the truth. You'll be close to solving a problem if you accept this as fact.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Others are trying to persuade you to put a current project on a back burner for now, but this week you are confident that you can make great strides. (March 6-March 20) -- You know what is being asked of you, but you are not able to do it as long as your long-term welfare is being ignored or discounted. An ally has your back all week long.
