The coming week is likely to present compelling evidence to support both sides of an argument that has been taken up by many individuals. Those who find themselves most deeply immersed in this conflict are almost certain to find that it informs a great many aspects of daily life that would usually be immune from such influence. The difference this week, of course, is that the issues at hand are central to a great many personal and professional issues that have recently come to the fore, and that means that there is a lot at stake.
Those who choose to make changes this week may find that it is far more difficult than expected to do so because of a lack of definite answers to the basic questions being asked at this time.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may be underestimating a rival at this time, and this can only work against you as the competition between you heats up. Rethink your entire approach. (April 5-April 19) -- You should be able to avoid the kinds of mistakes that others have made in similar situations -- but even if you do, there are unique obstacles to overcome this week.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can combine work and play this week in a manner that wins you admiration and support. You should be able to parlay a small success into something bigger. (May 6-May 20) -- Your week opens in surprising fashion, and you may feel you are having to catch up day after day -- when in reality, you are setting the pace. Don't underestimate yourself!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- If you find yourself on unsteady ground this week, seek out a friend or two who know you well and who understand what you need to remedy the situation. (June 7-June 20) -- Progress may be defined quite differently as the week comes to a close -- but is this because of something you do or is someone else responsible? The answer surprises many.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Now is no time to play favorites. You must be as objective as possible as you navigate a situation that will surely affect your future progress. (July 8-July 22) -- You should have more than one chance to address a difficult situation this week, and each time you will come significantly closer to doing what is necessary.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may have to judge a situation not by what it does for you, but by what it does for another. You can be sure that you'll be significantly affected in turn. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Fact and fiction must not be confused with one another this week -- though neither is necessarily better than the other. It all depends on the situation at hand.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- It's time for you to take a deep dive into a situation that you've been avoiding for a while. You'll discover you're equipped to do a good job! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're trying to buck certain trends that are, in fact, likely to remain influential for quite some time. For the best results, try accepting them and working with them.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- A strong start this week puts you in contention for something you've long desired -- but whether it will be yours or another's will not yet be decided. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're likely to win at the long game, even though you may find yourself struggling this week. Look ahead to what is possible, and you'll see where you're likely going.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You'll have to work through unexpected complications this week in order to understand what you've done to get where you are and what lies ahead. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The order of events is almost certain to have a major impact on your productivity this week. A decision made in a moment of panic can be unmade only with great effort.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Attempts to rein in someone who is doing what you dare not do yourself may backfire on you, and you can expect your involvement to become more personal. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- After something of a break, you are eager to get back into the swing of things this week -- but certain changes have been made in your absence that require adjustments.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You mustn't let anyone put you on the defensive this week; stand up and, whenever possible, speak up -- for yourself and anyone else being misunderstood. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Home affairs require some attention this week, though travel plans should not have to change if you get an early start and address certain uncomfortable issues head-on.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You're eager to compare what you experience at work with what may be available for you elsewhere. There's more than money to consider. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Take care that you don't suddenly find yourself doing something this week that you have, in the past, criticized others for doing. Such hypocrisy cannot get you very far.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can pick up the pace this week and get more work done in less time -- but first you must be able to identify precisely what it is you are trying to do. (March 6-March 20) -- You may have trouble shaking the emptiness that comes from not having something to commit to at this time. This will all change very soon -- when you are on a mission.
