The coming week is likely to present a great many individuals with an unusual option or two that are almost certain to make the decision-making process a little more difficult than usual, as the need to balance opportunity with personal safety is highlighted -- and the wrong decision will surely set one back considerably, if not make progress all but impossible at this time. All must be aware of the dangers that are present moving forward.
Collaboration combined with consolidation can surely result in dramatic acceleration this week -- but this is something one must prepare for, as it can be quite startling to hurtle forward at such a pace without being ready! Genuine desire and productivity are closely linked right now.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Change is in the wind, and you know that you'll be making adjustments as a result. The question is: Do you talk about it now or at a "better" time? (April 5-April 19) -- You receive news that bolsters your confidence as things get started this week. You may finally find yourself in a position you've long wanted to occupy.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You're likely to get hooked into something you don't completely understand, but you have the entire week to look into the details and either commit or back out. (May 6-May 20) -- What you see isn't always what you get, and this week it's no different -- so you must be sure to do your homework and assure that surprises are kept to a minimum.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may rise to the top this week despite a setback that prevents you from making a strong start. You have much going for you that others can only dream about. (June 7-June 20) -- Significant changes are all around you this week, and all you have to do is look to know just how much you will be affected. You're sure to feel things very deeply at this time.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Now is no time to hold back; go after what you want in the most aggressive manner you can for the best possible results -- but don't try to bend the rules! (July 8-July 22) -- You may be startled by someone's reaction to changing circumstances and wonder whether you should follow suit. Your best bet is to stay the course.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You can put someone's mind at ease early in the week and ensure steady progress. If you fail in that, you may have to consider a more hands-on approach. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- No one is working against you at this time -- except perhaps you. This means that you're going to want to be sure that all of your decisions are made in a conscious fashion.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be unusually affected by routine events this week -- but perhaps it's because there's someone new on the scene you haven't yet met. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Your rules aren't the only rules, but this week you'll no doubt be resistant to doing things anyone else's way. You'll want to compromise if you can to avoid a conflict.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Doing the usual things in the usual ways may not be enough this week; you must be willing to improvise and experiment in order to develop a new methodology. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- How you think about a problem may not do much to solve it, but it can result in some good conversation. At some point you must get down to work, however.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You are able to adjust your own behavior this week to suit ever-changing circumstances that seem, on most occasions, to be too much for those around you. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You're in no mood to deal with more people than you have to this week. Keep your work hours to a minimum, and spend as much time as you can in and around the home.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Practicality will be at the forefront of your thoughts all week as you try to do things in ways that yield immediate results. Maintain firm footing. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You may be on the verge of doing something that you swore some time ago you would never do -- or never repeat. This time, however, much has changed for the better.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to mount a search for something you very much need that has inexplicably gone missing. Ultimately, you'll find it almost where it belongs. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may have to fight through a tough time toward midweek, but the tools that will serve you best are not what you usually use. Let someone else lead the way, perhaps.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to keep track of your progress throughout the week so you can repeat it when the time comes at some point in the future. Keep records! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- An overreaction, either by you or someone close to you, will get the week started on a rather strained note -- but your leadership will get things back on track.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You'll want to keep all your options open until you understand just exactly which direction you'll be moving this week. Then you must lock things down. (March 6-March 20) -- You'll want to get in touch with your more creative side as soon as you can this week, as there is much you can do well in a more fluid and unorthodox manner.
