The coming week is likely to require of most individuals a far greater level of flexibility and fluidity in both personal affairs and professional endeavors if progress is to be made. Anyone who is too tied to the past, who doesn't want to change, who is ill-equipped to deal with the unexpected and who looks to the future with a suspicious eye will likely have a hard time -- especially at the workplace, where the usual support systems may be unavailable.
Where one can find strength and assurance this week is in the personal arena, as relationships are strengthened as individuals from all walks of life realize that they are, indeed, "in it together." This means that everyone can find strength in the person next door, and those who trust in others willingly can make a great deal happen this week. The keyword this week is "trust."
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- A creative idea is born this week, and you may be startled by the connection it has with your current affairs. You didn't think there was anything there! (April 5-April 19) -- You'll want to send good thoughts to a friend or loved one who is going through a trying time this week. If possible, you may want to schedule a reunion.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You don't want to overlook the basics this week, nor can you afford to have anyone working with you do the same. Stress the importance of an overall review. (May 6-May 20) -- You are looking at certain things very differently than the way you have in the past. A new method borrowed from a friend or an ally serves you well this week.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may have to work closely with someone who is far from home this week in order to make sense of an issue that has been troubling you for quite some time. (June 7-June 20) -- Your ties to what has gone before will prove stronger this week than ever before. You can learn a great deal about yourself through the eyes of a newfound ancestor.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can enjoy a trip down memory lane this week, but take care that you aren't led astray by someone who is secretly working against your own best interests. (July 8-July 22) -- You may have trouble trying to arrange things to suit your schedule this week, so accommodations will have to be made on your end. You have a chance to correct an error.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll have some trouble putting your best foot forward this week because you're not sure what's expected of you in a certain tricky situation. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You can provide a friend or loved one with just the kind of support you may require in the future. This will almost guarantee you'll get what you need when you need it.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Someone with whom you've been closely associated in the past hits you with some news that you could never have expected, and the week takes a curious turn. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're going to have to repeat yourself -- again and again, perhaps -- in order to be completely understood. This week will require you to step out of your comfort zone.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- One way or another, you are determined to reach your destination this week -- ahead of schedule. This means you may have to sever certain ties. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- A collaboration yields unexpected fruit. What you expect to hear from a superior takes an unusual form and means more to you -- and less -- than you might have anticipated.
SCORPIO (Oct. 21-Nov. 7) -- It will be far more important this week to teach by example, and you don't want to be the one criticized for breaking the rules or bucking the system. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Your approach to a certain problem must be deeper than usual this week if you're going to benefit from a potential revelation. You'll be disappointed if you stick to the shallows.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have trouble absorbing everything that is presented to you this week, but you can make progress by picking those elements that are most clear. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are determined to make your voice heard this week, and though others may have more to say at times, you'll surely have something of great value to contribute.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Despite your best efforts, you're not likely to have a major impact on someone's affairs this week until you are willing to be more direct. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- What you think will be instantaneous this week is likely to take quite a while -- but this can work to your advantage since you are able to make adjustments as you progress.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You receive news about someone early in the week that has you reflecting about your own state of affairs. Something you want has proved elusive. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may suddenly discover this week that you've not been going after something in the right way. You'll begin making progress almost immediately once you make necessary adjustments.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The domestic scene reveals much to you this week that you can apply to your professional endeavors. You'll discover someone is a real team player. (March 6-March 20) -- The information you seek this week is available, certainly, but finding it will require you to do things in a significantly different manner from your norm.
