The coming week is likely to require a comprehensive review of past actions and outcomes on the part of anyone who is eager to get past certain obstacles, navigate rough waters successfully and enjoy smooth sailing in the days -- and even weeks -- to come. It will be necessary for these forward-thinking individuals to immerse themselves, as much as possible, in all aspects of past episodes that they choose to scrutinize, for the most importance will almost certainly be placed on intangibles, such as how one felt at the time.
Unexpected turbulence may upset things on the home front at the most inconvenient times this week, especially for those who are unwilling or unable to recognize and acknowledge the impact they have had on domestic events. For those who accept responsibility for what happens this week, the road ahead should be rough only in brief patches, causing minor temporary setbacks.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be distracted by something that would have gone completely unnoticed by you only a week or two ago. This marks a significant personal shift. (April 5-April 19) -- You needn't work so hard this week to satisfy others. Satisfy yourself first, and you'll realize just how important that is to your overall sense of well-being.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Your timeline this week may not have room for someone's immediate needs, so you're going to have to make adjustments before things reach critical mass. (May 6-May 20) -- You should be able to demonstrate to others just how significant and impactful your actions can be -- when well-timed and well-executed. A top performance is a winner.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may have more to do this week than you had anticipated, but when help comes calling, you'll certainly have some tasks to delegate. You can get it all done. (June 7-June 20) -- You'll have to decide very quickly this week which road you prefer to go down when faced with a choice you weren't expecting. Your decision will affect others as well.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Give someone a little more of what you yourself enjoy this week, and you can make a questionable situation far more positive and rewarding. (July 8-July 22) -- Communication with someone who shares your outlook and intentions will yield some important discoveries and realizations that you can apply to your work almost immediately.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Your plans will move forward in a manner that allows you to make adjustments as you go -- which is essential given current circumstances. Don't get stuck! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Two paths are likely to converge this week, and the resulting encounter between you and a rival will almost surely yield something that neither of you could have anticipated.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Issues needn't be overcomplicated this week; keep things as simple as possible and know that your own attitude will impose a valuable calm. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may not be aware that someone is planning to counter your every move this week. This is no time to shrink from such a challenge; you must meet it head-on!
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You can take advantage of shock value this week as you do what is unexpected merely to get a reaction out of those who are usually very hard to impress. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You have only yourself to blame this week if you're unable to get things going at the right time and in the right direction. Are you interpreting all signs correctly?
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Once you get past midweek, you should enjoy smooth sailing, but until then, you'll be fighting something of an uphill battle against an invisible foe. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may require more than the usual participants this week in order to overcome a looming obstacle. Anyone who wants to join your team should be welcomed with open arms!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- That which had little impact on you in the past is likely to become very important to you this week -- not all at once, perhaps, but little by little. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- By following another's progress this week, you'll be able to determine just what is possible for you, as you are in a very similar position. You can juggle many tasks.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You don't want to do so much this week that others grow tired of you or your involvement. Pick and choose just when and where to present yourself. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be surprised by a rival's aggressive stance that can only be interpreted as a direct challenge. You have what it takes to meet it -- but think things through first!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- Your week may begin on a tense note as you give another a stern warning about what is and is not acceptable at this time. Things calm down as the days pass. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You're eager to give something a try, but those who know you best may warn you against stepping too far out of your comfort zone. Take time this week to experiment.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You are keenly interested in combining the old and the new at this time, and right now your efforts will be supported by someone considered an expert. (March 6-March 20) -- No explanation you offer this week is going to convince another that your behavior hasn't been a bit unusual lately. You must try to understand their unique point of view.
