The coming week is likely to fall out in a manner that takes many by surprise -- not because of what is unexpected, but because of what is. This week many will find that things transpire exactly as they have been foreseen, and that in itself can prove quite surprising, especially to those who have gotten used to things developing in a more random fashion. Events of the week should prove quite important, as plans begin to come to fruition and the potential for reward is understood more concretely than it has been in the past.
Some may want to go further this week than they had planned, and such efforts are favored when the circumstances themselves are favorable. Those who find themselves bucking current trends and circumstances may wish they had simply settled for the way things are without putting up a fight -- for those who do will surely be rewarded for it this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll want to avoid crowds this week and give yourself permission to experiment with a new approach or two. The workplace is more puzzling than usual. (April 5-April 19) -- After taking a brief hiatus, you're ready to resume a certain project -- but know that there are those whose enthusiasm has waned, and you must work to restore it this week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll be faced with decisions that must be made within a certain timeframe this week if you're going to benefit from them at all. Do not procrastinate! (May 6-May 20) -- You're eager to devise a new way of getting something done that has been proving more and more difficult with each passing day. Is it your approach or attitude?
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll be able to negotiate an important compromise with someone whose recent efforts have been making your own more difficult. This must be official. (June 7-June 20) -- You can enjoy more than your fair share of something this week without making anyone else go without. How is this done? You have a creative way of spreading the wealth.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The more you look ahead, the more you'll realize how important this week's events and endeavors really are. You can piece things together with great clarity. (July 8-July 22) -- You must be ready to answer to family members or loved ones who have good reason to check on you at various intervals throughout the week. Don't let yourself wander.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may want to consider prioritizing a very different activity this week, if only to see how things turn out differently. Experimentation can pay off! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may find yourself in a difficult situation this week because you want more than what is coming to you. Make sure all your efforts are aboveboard and legitimate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Take care that by doing more than assigned this week you're not merely overreaching and doing what should be done by someone else. Boundaries must be respected. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You must choose correctly when given a choice this week -- and that means you must arm yourself with all available and up-to-date information. Guesswork is not advised.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're perfectly aware of the fact that not everything can be controlled by sheer will -- but this week you should be able to control more than usual. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You want others to know the difference between the way things are and the way they should be, and you may be the only one who can demonstrate it clearly and in a timely fashion.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You cannot afford to be distracted this week since you are up against a deadline that would be difficult to meet under the best of circumstances. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may have reason to question another's motives or methods this week. When you receive either a clarification or an explanation, you must be ready to accept it.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Flexibility allows you to maneuver more fluidly this week as you attempt to avoid obstacles while meeting certain challenges. It's a tricky time! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Not everyone is going to want to hear what you have to say this week -- but those are the people who most need to hear it, no doubt. You mustn't take "no" for an answer.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Once you know you are well-stocked with the resources you need this week, you can begin to move forward -- albeit with great caution. Dangers lie ahead. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- If you don't know what you're looking for this week, then you're surely not going to know when you find it. Be as specific as you can be -- with yourself and others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The real and the unreal will surely both warrant your attention this week, but you must take care that you do not get lost in something that cannot be. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to make something easier for someone, but that may not be doing them any lasting good. You can offer guidance when things get especially tough.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You've decided that you're going to approach things with a completely different attitude this week -- but getting started that way proves quite a challenge. (March 6-March 20) -- The moment you decide to give another the right of way this week is the moment you give up your control over a certain situation. This is something of a balancing act.
