The coming week is likely to require a great deal of thought along lines not usually considered necessary or legitimate, in order to deal with rapidly emergent and quickly evolving situations that go against the grain where both timing and desire are concerned. There may not seem to be room for what transpires this week, and beyond that, what is most likely is not likely to be wanted, at all, by those who have the most at stake at this time.
Despite the clear presence of an emotional component to all that is going on this week, there is very little place for emotion when it comes to solving problems that arise, for emotions are only likely to cloud certain key issues and prevent ordinary mortals from getting to the heart of the matter -- again and again. The head must remain in control this week!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You may have good reason to go back go where you started, but potential gains are not what you envision. Think twice before heading out on your own this week. (April 5-April 19) -- Things transpire this week very much as planned, and yet you may still be drawn to a situation that is more chaotic than anything else going on. Why be so curious?
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You can try something from long ago, and while it's not likely to be wholly successful this week, you can learn a few important lessons about moving forward. May 6-May 20) -- You may find yourself working on a problem this week that is giving up some unexpected secrets. There's knowledge to be gained, but also the risk of some unpleasant surprises.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- What someone else wants may be temporarily out of reach this week, but what you can actually get your hands on may prove a suitable substitute for a while. (June 7-June 20) -- Say the word and your team of supporters will rush to your side, ready to help you address a situation that you never expected to arise. Throw numbers at the problem.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Questions such as "who" and "why" will on your mind throughout much of the day, but may prove to be only distractions. Get to the heart of the problem. (July 8-July 22) -- You will have to commit a great deal to memory today in order to prepare to do what has to be done in the long run. You derive a lot of fun out of a work project.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You'll be answering many questions throughout the week, but none is likely to be as complicated as the one you ask yourself in the midst of a very busy time. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Much of what you can accomplish this week will be done in the name of family, but at some point, you're going to have to tend to an issue that involves you alone.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- A strong beginning this week has you thinking you can tackle anything, which may prove a dangerous notion. Be ready to pull up short if necessary. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may be mistaking past feeling with current needs. The emotional component is complicating matters this week; avoid making a key decision.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- When you use words like "forever" and "always," you are setting up unrealistic expectations, and this week you must deal only in what is real. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be hit from behind this week by someone who has never thought ill of you for a moment. This sets up a new dynamic that may require a dramatic adjustment.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Something is likely to take control of you this week that you cannot explain or understand -- at first. Later, you'll realize what is really going on. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Just when you think you're stuck in a situation that cannot possibly end well, you'll be presented with options that allow you to salvage much of a difficult week.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may have to make a personal adjustment this week in order to allow a family member to take center stage. This will be remembered -- and rewarded. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- An unrealistic view of your position is keeping you from making the right decision. Listen to a friend who, by week's end, can have you thinking in a new way.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You can't simply run through an obstacle and expect to proceed as before. Take time to think through this situation, and choose a better course of action. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can show others how it's done this week while still indulging in a certain personal preference that usually goes against the popular grain. How you do it is your secret!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You know where you're going and you're eager to get there, but this week you must prepare yourself for a slowdown that may last longer than it should. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may be tempted to turn away from your stated goal this week in order to explore other options. Friends and family members object, but you are determined.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You have seeds to sow and the timing is right -- so make sure that you act when the time comes and don't simply squander an opportunity that may not return. (March 6-March 20) -- Much of your private behavior this week would be quite inexplicable even to those who know you well. You are likely making preparations for a major change.
