The coming week is likely to demand of all individuals a willingness to dive into things that may be unfamiliar and, as such, rather forbidding. There's really nothing to it, actually, as most will discover, for the fear of the unknown will surely outweigh any real difficulties that are experienced throughout the week -- and that fear may well evaporate altogether when individuals hit their stride and learn to navigate the week's developments with confidence.
Even the best plans will have to be altered somewhat at various points throughout the week and, as usual, those who choose to be resistant and immovable are likely to encounter difficulties.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- In the very process of keeping something unwanted at bay this week, you may make yourself vulnerable to another even more serious danger. Use care! (April 5-April 19) -- You don't want to be repeating yourself again and again this week as you have in the recent past. You can surely break a pattern of behavior that does you no good.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may want to check in with a friend who shares many of the same burdens in order to come to an honest assessment of your progress -- and your plans. (May 6-May 20) -- There's little reason for you to think that what worked for you last week won't work for you now. Do, however, be ready to make a change if you find your progress slowing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your domestic comfort may be threatened this week by someone who doesn't understand how you integrate your work into your personal life. Make it clear! (June 7-June 20) -- It's a good week for showing off a little, but take care that you aren't simply making a display of yourself at the wrong times. Craft what you do with care.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Communication with someone outside of your personal "bubble" must be exercised with great care this week -- but not only for the reasons you think. (July 8-July 22) -- Before doing the one thing you most want to do this week, you'll be well served by stopping all peripheral activities for a time and observing carefully all that goes on around you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You are eager to shape your week ahead of time, and you can do much planning, to be sure -- but on certain occasions you must be willing to make it up. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- The more you look at the same thing this week, the more it will seem to deviate from your expectations. Ask yourself: Is this your perception, or are things truly changing?
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can serve yourself and others very well this week by being even more pragmatic than usual. Focus on details, and make regular, honest assessments. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You are trying to increase your chances this week, and there's nothing wrong with that -- but what is it, really, that you're trying to do? You must answer that question!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can do a great deal this week by focusing your attention on a problem that others can't solve. You don't have all the answers, but your approach is sound. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You can score a personal victory this week, but you may not be able to share it with friends or loved ones -- yet. Keeping things close to the vest protects your interests.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Pick up the pace this week and you'll find that you can accomplish much more than you had planned -- but you must not let that pace control you! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll be tempted to turn to someone you know for the answer to this week's No. 1 question -- but what you don't know is that he or she is asking it as well. Work together!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Now is no time to make a sacrifice that will lead, in all probability, to no measurable gains. You mustn't be the one to take a loss at this time. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You are anticipating a trying time later in the week because of a financial situation that you have not yet been able to control. It's time to update your personal methods!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to engage in back-room negotiations this week in order to keep your integrity intact when all is said and done. Hold your head high! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Others are waiting for you to make the first move this week, but you're not feeling confident enough to take the initiative just yet. Take your concerns to a friend or mentor.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You are awaiting news that may prompt a major change on the home front -- but until it comes, you'll want to maintain the status quo for the benefit of all. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You have the chance to journey this week to a "land unknown" -- and your enthusiasm for such an adventure is greater than you might have expected. Don't overlook details.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- It's a good week to adjust your own outlook a bit in order to be more in line with the way everyone around you is thinking, speaking and behaving. (March 6-March 20) -- You may have been wondering what good can possibly come from conforming to the model established by others, but you realize this week that it can actually open a few doors for you.
