The coming week is likely to see needs and desires rise to the surface for many -- especially those that have been hidden, secret or unacknowledged. This means, of course, that everyone is going to have to take an honest look at themselves, at what they want and need, as if in a new light. Some will find it easy to acknowledge what is now obvious and, in virtually the same breath, dismiss it as out of date or simply unimportant.
Everyone must be willing to face the truth this week in one way or another. It's not a bad idea for vulnerable individuals to get at least moral support from those who are better equipped to face the week -- and what it brings -- head-on, but this will require talking about that which has been very "hush-hush" in the past. Everyone knows someone who can help.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Is this really the time to put your plans on hold? True, there are other things that will take up some time, but think twice before abandoning a project. (April 5-April 19) -- You can accomplish something that will not only bring you some recognition -- and rewards, perhaps -- but it will also give you a chance to explore a few new opportunities.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Both dreamers and doers will find that the week has something in store for them -- but where does that leave you? Be sure you have your feet on the ground. (May 6-May 20) -- Someone is more than interested in what makes you tick, but you are far more likely to avoid such personal probes than to encourage them -- until you have more details.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll have a chance this week to dig much deeper than usual and come up with at least a portion of the treasure you've actually hoped for in recent weeks. (June 7-June 20) -- Try as you might, you'll be unable this week to avoid what's coming. You can try to negotiate and better your position, but confidence and a solid stance are essential.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You can do much to keep a friend or loved one from sinking into an emotional quagmire that was self-made. You're certainly familiar with such phenomena. (July 8-July 22) -- You can hope for a miracle or you can work with what you have available to you today to ensure that the situation you reject this week will not come back to haunt you.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- It's a good time to acknowledge what you and an old friend had between you. Even if you cannot revive the relationship, you can surely appreciate what it was. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A friend is likely to become a rival for a time this week, and you'll both learn something important as a result. You're going to have to be the generous one, however!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The more you think about the people around you, the more able you'll be to do what they require in order to enjoy what lies in store for all of you. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A chance encounter changes things for the better this week, but it will be up to you, all alone, to do what is necessary to keep things going in the same positive way.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You have so much going for you this week that your closest rivals are considering conceding even before a competition gets underway -- but can this last? (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- As news is passed from one to another throughout the week, you'll find yourself in charge of shaping overall reaction of your group of friends. Sensitivity is key.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You may have more of a burden to carry this week than you had foreseen, but you can do it, surely. No one is likely to stand in your way at this time. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Breaking things down into their smallest component parts will be essential this week to understand the larger issues you're facing. You must study the nitty-gritty.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You know what's best for you, but what's best for those near you? That's the question you may be charged with answering before the week is out. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Your ability to see through smokescreens and assess the truth of a situation will surely serve you well all week long -- and a competitor will tip their hat to you, surely.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You mustn't sit back and let the stars take too much control of your life this week. They can influence you, surely, but you must be in the driver's seat. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A brief and seemingly innocuous message almost passes you by this week, but when it does land in your inbox, you'll want to think very carefully before responding.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll show a soft spot this week to those nearest you, and though you and they will be surprised, it can result in a very nice turn of events. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- If you find yourself farther from home than intended this week, you can and must stay in touch with someone who has been feeding you important information along your way.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may get some news early in the week that can be used to salvage a relationship that has been ignored or overlooked recently. It's time to reach out. (March 6-March 20) -- Your dreams are as valid and valuable as anyone else's, and this is surely a good time to pursue them. What you can visualize, you can very likely make real this week.
