The coming week is likely to see a good many individuals having to adjust to changing circumstances -- or those which have already changed -- to the extent that they have to begin dealing with what amounts to changing and changed realities of all kinds that affect almost all areas of daily life, from personal to the professional. This week, inner strength, emotional fortitude and psychological health are all of nearly equal importance.
Many will run the risk this week of thinking that they are going through something very important -- and likely very difficult -- all alone, but this is not the case. There are many people who can provide essential help, guidance and encouragement this week -- and all one has to do is reach out and ask for it.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- What you do and say this week will almost surely be remembered, but attempts by others to use any of it against you in the future are sure to miss the mark. (April 5-April 19) -- You'll want to gravitate toward others who are going through something very much like what you're going through -- but, in truth, you must deal with much of it alone.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Once the damage is done this week, you'll not be able to undo it, so you must apply a good deal of vigilance to all things this week starting at day one. (May 6-May 20) -- You may be suffering from symptoms you've brought upon yourself. Pay attention to what your body is saying to you, and try to keep emotions out of the equation.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You're going to have to juggle a few more things than usual this week and take on someone else's burden as well -- temporarily, at least. You'll make progress. (June 7-June 20) -- You must be willing to face a great many things all at once this week, lest you be overwhelmed and fail at the one thing that you simply must get right. Don't waver.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Starting over may not be an option, but you can forge ahead with your usual duties in a way that embraces whatever provides you something of a new outlook. (July 8-July 22) -- You are tempted to let everything else slide this week in order to focus on the one thing that most interests you, but this can be detrimental. Attend to all that comes up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may not enjoy all of the opportunities that you were hoping would arise, but what you are able to do will prove to others that you are in it to win it. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have to give someone you know the shock treatment this week on more than one occasion in order to communicate what it is you're going through right now.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have a chance to prove yourself in a manner that means more to you, ultimately, than anyone else. A stubborn obstacle forces you to dig deep. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You must respond to all that happens this week in a rational manner that is also proportional. Anything you do that is out of line will surely come back to haunt you.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're likely to find yourself challenged this week -- not by what anyone else does, but by what you yourself do under pressure. Some fixes prove difficult. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You mustn't make the mistake of thinking that everything will be clearly revealed to you on the surface of things. You're going to have to look deeper than that.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Others may have the opportunity to take advantage of you this week, but by thinking fast and moving just as quickly, you can avoid any genuine dangers. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- The nimbler you are, in both mind and body, the more likely you'll be to avoid certain hardships that have plagued others going through similar situations. Stay alert!
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You can take advantage of a situation in a way that takes almost everyone else by surprise -- but especially those who consider you a rival. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You're going to have to accept certain new realities this week if you're going to make the kind of progress internally and externally that allows you to be truly you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may want to challenge the experts at times this week, but when faced with overwhelming evidence, you must accept their verdict -- and deal with it. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Now is no time to let others see you succumbing to situations of your own making. Be strong, proactive and thorough to avoid being seen as vulnerable.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- The sooner you are able to take control of a situation that is evolving very quickly, the sooner you'll have what you want. Be ready! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may come across someone who is better than you are at dealing with certain prevailing circumstances. Watch and learn -- and be ready to step in when it is your turn.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You can do yourself proud this week, but it's going to take a great deal of patience and fortitude to face a situation that has evolved over time. (March 6-March 20) -- You can be both buoyant and resilient this week, yet you'll still be affected by certain developments that you simply didn't see coming. Your plans will have to change.
