The coming week is likely to bring people together in new and unorthodox ways -- and many individuals will discover that these opportunities can be fully exploited as each promotes his or her agenda more creatively and aggressively. While health and safety protocols will almost surely remain top priorities, there are those who will be able to devise various means of offering social satisfaction with a minimum of risk, and all one has to do is be on the lookout for those who are doing things in new ways that still "follow the rules."
Those who have been balancing the personal and the professional successfully the past weeks or months may find that things are a little easier this week -- but why? That's the question that has to be answered.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Putting off that which you are afraid to do is unwise -- especially this week during which many opportunities to do the "impossible" are sure to arise. (April 5-April 19) -- An irrational fear must not be allowed to keep you from doing that which you have been looking forward to for some time. Remember, this may be a "now or never" proposition!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Your responsibilities are likely to multiply this week, and though you may at first be rather hesitant, you'll discover that this is a perfect opportunity. (May 6-May 20) -- Your wish that things would go back to the way they were is shared by many this week, but it's not one that's likely to come true, so why not think about the future instead?
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may feel as though things have reverted to another time, but that's simply a quirk of perception. Such smokescreens needn't last long this week. (June 7-June 20) -- Your creative approach to a routine event is likely to win you more than praise this week. Indeed, by the weekend you'll almost surely be counting your many blessings.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may be thinking that you've missed an important opportunity, but it's not gone for good. Later in the week, you'll spot an opening that others are using. (July 8-July 22) -- You can overcome more than one major obstacle this week, but you may feel as though something is still holding you back. Careful analysis suggests that you are the cause.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- That which passed you by some time ago may reappear this week, and you'll have the opportunity to do something you didn't do the first time. Don't hesitate! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You're ready to conquer at least one of your fears, and this week should grant you ample opportunity to do just that. Know that this will take something of an emotional toll.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- That which is no longer valid must not take up any more of your time. Instead of living in the past, you'll want to move forward -- and you certainly can! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- The idea that you are unfit for a certain job, whether temporary or long term, is simply not worth fretting about. You know otherwise and can move ahead quickly.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be called upon to do something that goes against the grain -- but if you time it right, the pros will outweigh the cons. Do it your way! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- The public and the private may have to be combined this week in a way that allows you to maintain a level of notoriety that gives you what you want at very little cost.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The ups and downs this week may be quite dramatic, but you don't have to be center stage for most of them. You can ease your own burden by stepping aside. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Difficulties this week are lessened only if you're able to look at them from a new and more flexible perspective. Things are not always what you claim they are!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Your relationship with a certain someone may come under scrutiny this week, but you can prove that everything you're doing is on the up-and-up. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A meeting with an old friend isn't likely to go as expected -- but that's not at all a bad thing! You are able to find the silver lining in this particular "cloud."
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be saddened by someone's response to the way things progress this week. Yes, things are changing yet again -- but that's to be expected. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- There are those who, behind the scenes, will be working to further your own efforts this week -- and you will want to single them out as you thank those who have helped you.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may be thrown off-kilter for a time this week because of something another does without thinking. This is not something that deserves much attention. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You should be able to score a major personal victory very early in the week, leaving you much time later on to focus on the affairs of another who needs your assistance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Something you do this week is actually easier than you expected -- but something else proves harder. Those kinds of trade-offs are necessary all week. (March 6-March 20) -- Your civil approach to a volatile problem makes all the difference this week, and you can see things wrapped up very nicely before they threaten to get out of hand.
