The coming week is likely to see most individuals -- and virtually all that are "in charge" of things in some way -- dealing with sudden and unexpected changes in scheduling that require everyone to be more keenly aware of what is going on all around them and an ability to maneuver swiftly when the opportunities to get back on track present themselves. There are those who assumed -- rightly -- that they had all the time in the world to get things done this week, and they're going to have to make all manner of swift alterations to both schedules and plans because that time has likely been diminished.
There are leaders and there are followers, and this week it should be very clear to almost everyone who is who and which is which -- though at some point during midweek the possibility of changing places is very real.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It's important that you learn not only the techniques required by the endeavor you are attempting this week, but also the lingo. Get it right! (April 5-April 19) -- Whether you see something from far away or close up, you'll be focused on the kinds of things that others usually don't see. This will give you a distinct advantage this week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're confident that you can do better this week than you did last week -- but there are different things at stake, and all may be up in the air. (May 6-May 20) -- You receive a message early in the week that has you making last-minute adjustments to your plans as certain obstacles are revealed to you. You know what could be won or lost.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You must be confident this week, but you must also take care that you're not merely advertising yourself at too high a price. You should be realistic! (June 7-June 20) -- You know what's what this week, and you'll gladly wait until someone makes a serious error to step forward and announce yourself. Patience is clearly a virtue!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- While another contributes to your efforts, you can contribute to his or hers, as well -- and, in the end, you'll both enjoy the rewards of continued collaboration. (July 8-July 22) -- You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that you can step forward and solve everyone's problems. First, you must solve your own -- and then opportunities present themselves.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll know very quickly whether your expectations are realistic or out of line. Someone who works closely with you will be ready to take the fall for you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A trip down memory lane yields a very strange experience for you this week -- and though you may invite others to come along, no one is likely to join you just yet.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The more intellectual your approach is this week, the more likely you will be to avoid the very pitfalls that plague those around you. Be alert! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The mistake you make this week is likely to be one only you will understand -- but that gives you the chance to correct it in time to make a difference. Do not hesitate!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You are capable of much right now, but you must take care that your ambitions don't outweigh your abilities. You can afford to be aggressively realistic. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to win the admiration of one who usually isn't free with his or her praise. This means that something big is on the horizon -- but you can't yet see what.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The little changes that you make this week are likely to yield quite dramatic results. What you don't know can indeed hurt you -- but that surely needn't happen. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Share what you learn this week, and you'll be in a position to assemble the best possible team when the time comes. You don't want others to be left in the dark, surely.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- If at first you don't succeed this week, never fear! You'll have more than one chance to get it right, and you will learn very quickly. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to suffer through a great deal of repetition this week before you can begin to count your gains. A teammate offers an unexpected option.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- If at first you don't succeed, you are better off moving on to something else. This week, subsequent tries aren't likely to be favored at any time. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll learn a great deal about yourself by doing what you are told -- and later in the week you'll likely be afforded the opportunity to add your own spin to things.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be certain that a number of things will wait until next week or the week after -- but midweek you'll understand why they are urgent. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You don't have to share your opinion about the way things are being managed this week, for that will only cause a stressful conflict. Don't be a back-seat driver!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The more you are willing to work with others this week, the more you can all accomplish -- without stepping on each other's toes. Try cooperating this week! (March 6-March 20) -- Your attempts to show off are likely to fall short. Give yourself more time to learn the new things that will make a difference between success and failure.
