The coming week is likely to require, in cases both anticipated and not, separation of all sorts between parents and children, siblings, friends, lovers, spouses and business partners -- but in almost every instance the separation will be agreed upon by both parties and even very likely desired. The fact is, of course, that there is much to be gained by such partings this week, and they are sure to prove that physical separation and distance are nothing compared to emotional and psychological attachment.
In some cases, a separation may well lead to a far greater understanding of what "togetherness" really means. Those who come back together toward week's end will do so with a new zeal and a willingness to commit once more to that which had been, in recent weeks or months, taken for granted.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are likely to realize, perhaps halfway through the week, that a situation that has been forced upon you is actually beneficial -- for now at least. (April 5-April 19) -- You must be sure to get enough rest and nourish both your body and your mind this week. An emotional situation must not be allowed to get the better of you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- While others may be wondering what is expected of them, you'll know very well what you should do -- but that's not the same as doing it. Get started early! (May 6-May 20) -- You are confident that you can meet your responsibilities this week, but will it be possible for you to take on more? A new situation tests you in an unusual way.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Whether or not you are comfortable with the way things are around you this week, you must move forward -- or concede defeat. Hard work gets the job done. (June 7-June 20) -- Something about a plan you've been making doesn't sound quite right to you or to others. Perhaps a central issue has yet to be addressed? Leave no stone unturned!
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may be comfortable with your current situation, but not everyone close to you is as willing to relax as you are. You can do much to win them over in time. (July 8-July 22) -- What is it that you object to about the circumstances in which you find yourself this week? Answer that question honestly, and you'll be well on the way to success.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may be the recipient of messages you cannot decipher this week. Take advantage of all assistance, and trust those who claim to know what's going on. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- What you have planned may require several short trips this week and at least one long one. Be sure you know how to get where you're going -- and how to get back!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can make all the difference for a certain someone when it comes to getting the most out of a difficult situation. As a role model, you will be exemplary. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You feel the winds of change beginning to blow at this time, but take care you don't react prematurely. You must deal in specifics, not generalities, all week long.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You won't want to lose sight of what you're really after this week. Others may not understand your true motives, but you're not about to be derailed. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're moving in the right direction, but this week changes may have to be made as you are separated from a longtime partner -- temporarily. You make a key discovery.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- The more you try to accomplish, the more you may drift from your own emotional center. You needn't take on more than you are comfortable with, surely. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- There are certain rules you must follow this week, but some you can bend or even break -- especially if you are creative in the way you reveal your doings to others.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- What goes on in and around the home this week teaches you much about things you've not given much thought to recently. A change of mind may result. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You must take care that preoccupation with certain activities doesn't keep you from answering someone else's call for help. Be aware of what goes on around you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You may have to do more than keep yourself in control this week; it may be your turn to keep a certain rival in your sights and "in check" if possible. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- How you do a thing will be just as important as getting it done, so you mustn't do anything that is likely to attract criticism -- or doubt. Your reputation may be at stake.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You are eager for more of what you've very much enjoyed over the past few weeks -- but is it available and, if so, where? A search is likely in order. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Take care that you don't send any wrong messages this week as you try to communicate in code. When all is said and done, you may choose to be open and direct.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You will surely have much to be grateful for this week, which will become clear when you compare your situation to the one others find themselves in. (March 6-March 20) -- You can be comfortable either calling the shots or following orders this week -- but you cannot do both at the same time without risking your own progress, and someone else's too.
