The coming week is likely to involve travel -- but not in the usual sense. Individuals are likely to go from one place to another while staying put in the comfort of their home or workplace, traveling in their minds to places that are more suitable to personal progress than anything currently offered up in daily life -- which means imagination is really the key to a profitable week.
Some may be confused about what is called for this week, and what is possible, but the fact is that there will be far fewer limitations, restrictions, guidelines and rules to follow at this time than there have been in recent weeks or months. And that will allow those with a penchant for imaginative thought to really break through and come up with new ideas that can make all the difference in the world.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It'll be up to you to turn a harsh reality into something better -- something soothing, even healing. It's all a matter of perspective, and yours is golden. (April 5-April 19) -- Don't give in to the kind of criticism that is sure to come your way this week. Stay the course and know that what you do will surely pay off when the time comes.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- There's no guarantee that what you choose to do this week, though somewhat unusual and certainly novel, will have the desired effect. Do it anyway. (May 6-May 20) -- Take care that you don't reach so far this week that you pull yourself off balance. You must be realistic -- but within that reality, let your imagination do its work.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You'll be on the move this week, and others will have to work to keep up with you or get left behind. What you intend is far more generous than anyone knows. (June 7-June 20) -- You needn't fear the unfamiliar territory toward which you are headed. You can discover opportunities for trying new things while exploring your surroundings this week.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The more you try to do things a certain way this week, the more mistakes you're likely to make. Follow your instincts and do what genuinely feels good. (July 8-July 22) -- The work you do this week will begin to pay off handsomely next week, and those who have similar responsibilities may choose to copy your methods. Let them.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Yes, rainbows are only optical illusions, but you should be able to cling to all that they mean -- and all that they portend -- by remaining hopeful this week. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have to psych yourself up for something that's going to be quite taxing this week, but you know you have to go through it for the benefit of all.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may have to double down on something you believe this week in order to make headway while others take opposing views. No one said it would be easy. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You're eager to complete something this week that has a lasting effect on others -- but you cannot be in so much of a hurry that you neglect certain key realities.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- No matter where you apply yourself most this week, you'll see your efforts through a different lens -- perhaps one that is clearer than ever before. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're concerned with something that involves many more people than just yourself and your family. You may have to travel to get something off the ground.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- You cannot afford to let yourself become entangled in an issue that did not, at the outset, involve you. Steer clear and focus on your work. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- This week may, in some ways, feel very much like last week -- except that your own awareness and perception are much keener now, and their direct benefits are considerable.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You cannot move forward today without getting certain things out of your way -- but they are firmly implanted and require time and skill to extract. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- What happens peripherally this week is likely to affect you more and more with each passing day. You come to understand that you are more in control than you knew.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may be carrying a very heavy emotional burden at this time, and all week long you'll be seeking a way to lessen it. That method is close at hand. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- A key lesson is learned this week -- and just in time. What happens subsequently is sure to surprise those in charge and give you a boost you've long anticipated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll have to pick up this week where you left off last week -- or the week before. You must also be more tolerant of another's vulnerability. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- A big issue is likely to arise this week before you know it and engulf your entire family. It'll be your job to part the waters when you have the chance.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may not be able to do that which you know is best this week, but doing your best will be good enough -- at least until you recognize a new opportunity. (March 6-March 20) -- You may be dealing in nonsense this week until -- bang! -- you are struck with a seemingly random thought that gives your remaining endeavors genuine meaning and import.
