The coming week is likely to bring more of the same to a great many individuals -- but that "same" isn't likely to be universally recognizable. Indeed, what is familiar to one is likely to be unfamiliar to the next, and everyone will be dealing with issues that are deeply personal, to the extent that it may prove fruitless for one to try to explain to another what he or she is going through.
Much travel was in the picture for the week, but plans may have to change to accommodate the continuation of conditions that are not conducive to health, safety or progress. In other words, it may be best for people to stay home this week -- and if that's not possible, to restrict travel to known destinations.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You begin the week in no mood for certain challenges -- but soon you'll realize that you must face one or two before moving on to more profitable pursuits. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll find yourself moving slowly away from that which has brought you much pleasure in the past. This is surely a sign of change that you'll want to explore further.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- What begins in fun early in the week becomes something you'd much rather avoid in the future if at all possible. You know the key to a problem. (May 6-May 20) -- Now is no time for you to make demands of others; this week, you'll want to focus solely upon your own needs and desires. Are you able to do what is necessary?
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You're waiting for someone to "do right by you" this week -- but that's not the best use of your time, surely. Rethink your purpose, and adjust your approach. (June 7-June 20) -- Make an early start this week, and you'll have more time to yourself later on -- provided you haven't overlooked something that must be addressed right now or not at all.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You and a longtime collaborator may be considering a parting of ways, but this week you may discover, just in time, that you still share a common goal. (July 8-July 22) -- The pull of another has you fighting to stay where you are this week. Is it that you want things to stay the same, or are you afraid of where something new will take you?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A game of show and tell results in a surprise development that is, in your view, very much a double-edged sword. Advantages and risks are almost inseparable. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have a hard time shaking a feeling of distress this week. Do what you can to determine its cause; you may find that your feelings are, after all, well-founded.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may think you're looking at things the right way this week, when in fact you couldn't be more wrong. It's time to believe what someone is telling you regarding your perspective! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your ability to pick up the pieces after someone has made a mess of things will serve you well this week -- but you must also know when to say enough is enough! You've set boundaries for a reason.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Internal rhythms are shifting slightly, and the week's events reflect your resulting uncertainty. Following in another's footsteps would be wise. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may feel as though what you are striving for is no longer as valuable as you had once thought -- at least in the eyes of others. Does this warrant a change, however?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You mustn't let sour grapes keep you from doing what you will enjoy this week. Don't allow emotions to creep in where they do not belong. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may have to work harder than usual this week to maintain contact with someone who is proving essential to the success of a pet project. Not everyone will be helpful to you.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can afford to face certain situations from a more pragmatic point of view. Don't think that everyone will respond favorably to your unique approach. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Your reactions to the week's events will speak as loudly as any words, and you'll want to be sure that you are at all times sending out the right messages.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may find yourself grappling with expectations all week long -- but is it another's or your own that are really throwing a wrench in the works? (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Comfort is the aim this week, but you're going to have to work hard to win it. Indeed, what you go through will surely earn you the right for some rest!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may uncover a previously unforeseen opportunity this week. To take advantage of it, however, will require you to make certain dramatic life changes. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- One or two questions that have lingered for quite some time can be answered this week, but only if you are willing to drift out of your comfort zone for a while.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may have to answer to an authority higher than any other to whom you are responsible. This week, you'll want to tell the truth at all times. (March 6-March 20) -- A search for something that's missing reveals more than you had bargained for this week. Someone by your side is able to fill in the gaps and provide up-to-date information.
