The coming week is likely to offer equal doses of disappointment and satisfaction almost in tandem, and many will find that they are, indeed, linked -- if not in a practical, down-to-earth sense, then at least in a metaphorical sense that can be fully understood when one looks inward instead of outward in an attempt to connect the dots and understand fully what is going on this week. That ability to connect the dots will prove an essential talent all week long.
When it comes to personal relationships, however, all of this is likely to be inapplicable this week, as sense and nonsense -- order and chaos under other names -- may be so closely aligned that it is virtually impossible to tell which is which.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You'll have to follow up this week in order to be sure that someone's recent work is up to par. Once you have the answer, you can move ahead yourself. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll want to reach out to those who have ideas that are different from your own, in order to ensure that the best possible course is taken by you and others very soon.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Giving up should not even be part of the conversation you have with teammates and others. You may have to backtrack or start again, but you must keep trying! (May 6-May 20) -- Your search for just the right person to do something that has remained undone for too long may take you into unfamiliar territory this week. Keep your wits about you!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Your work is likely to be in the spotlight this week -- but not because you sought that kind of attention or notoriety. You should encounter little criticism. (June 7-June 20) -- A meeting of the minds is likely to result in consensus this week, but you may find yourself disagreeing with the group. This could be a good thing; is it time for a change?
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Contact made this week will be lasting and beneficial, but not if you make it under false pretenses. You must be honest and straightforward at all times. (July 8-July 22) -- What comes to you this week may not be useful until you have made adjustments to it -- and to your own overall attitude and approach. A decision is made before the weekend.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Your interest in the diversity before you will serve you and others very well all week long -- though your own value may take a temporary hit as a result. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may not be able to avoid being judged in some way this week -- and you may want that, as it can lead to career advancement or something more if it's handled properly.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- What you don't know is likely to be more important to the way the week progresses than what you do know -- but you can learn quickly and break bad habits. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- When it comes to choosing which is better for you, this or that -- whatever they may be -- you'll want to come at the question from a deeply personal point of view.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're going to want to finalize your plans before putting them into action this week -- and that means getting the "approval" of someone nominally in charge. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You will want to repeat later on something you do early in the week -- but hopefully under slightly different circumstances. What you're after isn't entirely out of reach.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- While waiting for others to contribute what they can to a certain group project, you'll be able to get something done on the side that profits you alone. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You'll have cause to think about things from a more "philosophical" standpoint throughout much of the week. What is it you're really trying to accomplish?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have the sense throughout much of the week that you're being watched -- or at least "tracked" in some way. This can be to your advantage! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You'll be in a position to pass judgment over someone's work and progress this week -- but you must take care not to let that affect your own in any significant way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You'll begin the week with as much information at your fingertips as is available to you. Later on, you should be able to share your point of view. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- There are those who simply won't understand what you're doing -- or why -- no matter how much you try to explain yourself. You're not doing it for them anyway, are you?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You and a friend or partner are likely to be at cross-purposes throughout much of the week -- until you both realize what it is you should be doing together! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're not about to make any changes this week unless you are willing to accept that you are responsible for certain developments that have not panned out as expected.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can incorporate more than one method and philosophy this week as you try to up your game while being watched by others. Trust what you know! (March 6-March 20) -- You may encounter a problem that finds its roots in generational differences. Throughout the week you'll have to make decisions that reveal to others exactly who you are.
