The coming week is likely to find many individuals planning for a new chapter -- not in a fanciful or theoretical fashion, but in a practical, realistic manner that will allow, for the most part, all pieces of one's individual puzzle to begin to come together successfully. Much time has no doubt been spent by many people looking back -- at what's happened, why it's happened, what it means and what impact it is having. This week, one's attention can effectively turn to the future.
Challenges will surely remain. What is different during this week, however, is that people can, if their mindset is correct, understand how the future is forged by a combination of will and destiny -- and that good things can begin to happen. In short, positive thinking can work wonders this week!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You must be on guard this week, as there are those who would try to displace and replace you. How you position yourself as the week opens makes a difference. (April 5-April 19) -- You will have more than one deadline to meet this week, but doing so will give you the confidence boost you need to address a growing problem. A loved one reaches out.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may have to wait longer than expected this week to get the answers you seek -- but perhaps you haven't asked questions as clearly as possible. Rephrase! (May 6-May 20) -- You'll move ahead of the pack this week simply by trusting your instincts and letting them lead you down a winding path toward the destination you've recently chosen for yourself.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You have a surprise in store for anyone who expects the same old thing from you this week. You're in no mood to repeat yourself -- and you won't! (June 7-June 20) -- Congratulations will be in order as the week comes to a close, but who is to be congratulated? That's the question you want to work on throughout the week; it should be you!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Working with a partner yields precisely the rewards you expect this week, but also benefits you in a way that you had no way of anticipating. Go for broke! (July 8-July 22) -- You may have to deal with rising tensions this week both at home and at the workplace -- though you are perhaps making things worse by trying to please too many people.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- It's more important than usual this week for you to present yourself in the best possible light -- especially when promoting an idea that may be controversial. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Something said in the past threatens to haunt you this week, as others remember more than just the words. You can put all of this to rest with a few more carefully chosen words.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have good reason to look back at what you've done recently -- and what others have done as well. A close comparison gives you some valuable new information. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- What you want proves elusive this week, but that's no reason to give up -- especially when dealing with a friend or loved one who has put a great deal of faith in you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You needn't feel insecure, uncertain or unclear about what is asked of you this week. You're in a position that allows you to accomplish a great deal. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to benefit from as much self-reflection this week as you have time for -- though at some point you must stop reflecting and start making some firm decisions.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You will be required to communicate much more clearly this week than last -- and what that really means is that you must listen more than usual. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- While used to working alone, you must become accustomed this week to having a certain someone by your side -- whether literally or figuratively. You've much to share!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can inspire events this week, even as you react to those you cannot influence one way or the other. Many people will pay attention to you in a new way. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You'll have to work hard to accommodate another's schedule this week. While you won't have to sacrifice much, you will likely have to take on a certain extra burden.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You receive a message early in the week that may have you making a very unexpected about-face -- just when you thought you were nearing the finish line. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You mustn't let your frustration about certain unchangeable realities get to you this week. You'll find inspiration in what someone is doing -- and saying.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll learn more lessons this week than last, but you'll also have the feeling that next week will offer even more still. You're in a phase marked by change. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Pay attention to the rules and regulations this week, and, by all means, honor the deadlines that others are imposing on you. They do this for your own good, certainly!
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can provide valuable services to those who need them this week, but take care that you don't spread yourself too thin. Dangers lurk in shadows. (March 6-March 20) -- You're likely to have the last laugh this week, but until then, you'll be going through something that you won't really want to remember. A calculated risk pays off.
