The coming week is almost certain to require more in the way of team building and collaboration from almost everyone who wishes to make measurable progress at this time -- and those who do are likely to experience a dramatic increase not only in enthusiasm for what they are doing and for what lies ahead, but also in recognition and reward -- of the kind that is immediately satisfying if not long-lasting. Most of what happens this week will favor the group over the individual, but this doesn't mean solo efforts are in any way doomed.
So, what kinds of things do the stars favor for those who, for whatever reason, decide to go it alone this week? There's nothing exceptional in the offing, and the usual good work should suffice.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Opportunity knocks quite loudly for you and your team this week, and you'll want to be ready with orders for your "troops." Delay may not be forgiven. (April 5-April 19) -- You're after something a little more permanent than anything the week has in store -- yet. You can surely change your plans to ensure a few more lasting rewards.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're "in it to win it," and no one is going to stand in your way this week! Energy and enthusiasm are quite high, and your vision is crystal clear. (May 6-May 20) -- Now is no time to be uncertain or wishy-washy with those who come to you with questions. This week, your ability to get to the heart of the matter makes a difference.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your confidence will only be mistaken for cockiness this week by those who do not understand your true motives. Your collaborators will surely be on board! (June 7-June 20) -- You can bet that others will join forces with you this week as soon as they find out what it is you are trying to accomplish, as you and they share many common aspirations.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may require more support this week than you've enjoyed in the past, but that doesn't mean you won't make any progress until you get it. Keep moving forward! (July 8-July 22) -- Though you are confident that no one is going to catch you red-handed this week, you must take care that you aren't doing anything that could really land you in hot water.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll be inspired by those around you to strive for something big this week -- and they'll be inspired by you to work hard to see that you are successful. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You don't have to exert a controlling influence this week in order to contribute something of value; indeed, your work behind the scenes should prove essential.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Something that has been in the back of your mind for quite some time is likely to work itself to the fore throughout the week; it's time to give it a try! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your instructions must be clear, brief and direct this week. Avoid anything that might be interpreted as flexible. Most things must happen in just the right way!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You'll benefit this week from a slowdown that affects almost everyone in your line of work, as you'll be able to use the time to finalize a brand-new plan. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to move forward, but you are uncertain about the path to take. Don't worry about that too much at this juncture: There may currently be only one option.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Even a small piece of news can affect you significantly this week if you are not prepared to receive it; you must be ready for anything that comes along! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The simplest message can contain the most significant of messages -- as communication throughout this busy week clearly demonstrates. You mustn't overcomplicate matters.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You mustn't jump the gun this week or skip any of the checkpoints along your path. Everything must happen in the right order at all times! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Opposition this week may take you by surprise at first, but it will teach you to deal with the unexpected in ways that work well for you later. You learn much this week!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll be dealing with two very different realities as the week opens, and it will be up to you to see how they are different -- and choose the right one! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Your methods will almost surely evolve this week, albeit quite slowly. You'll want to be sure that all those working with you have all the latest information.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- What begins as a minor spat may perhaps grow into a major conflict if you are not there to keep the lid on. Others will listen to you -- if you speak up! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Now is no time to question those in authority. You may well have questions, but you must keep them to yourself for now -- until you understand another's motives more clearly.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Though others may be adversely affected by certain circumstances this week, you'll find that they suit you very well, if not perfectly. Keep going! (March 6-March 20) -- A favor you did for someone a few weeks ago is likely to be returned this week -- and just in time for you to turn it into a major advantage. Things are shaping up nicely.
