The coming week is likely to provide ample opportunity for all individuals to engage in honest reflection and self-assessment of the type that can, if properly exploited, raise the level of one's overall interactions with others to new levels of productivity, discovery and enjoyment. It is essential at this time that everyone who wishes to excel take a step back for a moment and study what has been done.
Putting one's best foot forward may prove more tricky than usual, especially if it's done at all prematurely, before one has gathered the knowledge necessary to do it at all.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Yes, the week before you is ripe with possibilities, but you cannot exploit them fully until you come to a greater understanding of what it is you want. (April 5-April 19) -- An unresolved conflict is more important to you this week than it has been in the recent past, and you'll be called upon to step up and take some responsibility for it.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You may not win the approval of many just yet, but by week's end, you can be in a much better position for calling the shots where your work is concerned. (May 6-May 20) -- A battle of opinions is likely to be waged this week over an issue that is not all that important to you, because you recognize that something else is much more pressing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- There is more than one way to do what needs to be done this week, and you will want to consider the pros and cons of each before you even get started! (June 7-June 20) -- Tensions rise this week as a result of something you do that is only slightly different from the way you've done it in the past. You might have to address this each and every day.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- A clash of personalities must not be allowed to affect what happens at the workplace this week. You're up against a deadline, and you must be efficient! (July 8-July 22) -- The particular problem facing you this week is best solved through solitary action -- but you can plan your assault in tandem with others who know even more than you do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- The volatility of certain personal issues may take you by surprise this week. Don't put yourself in any position that might increase your own vulnerability. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- If others break the rules, you will certainly be tempted to do the same, but this week that can only result in trouble for you and your allies. All must be done aboveboard.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- The fact that you know more about what is going on around you than anyone else can serve you well this week -- but you are not omnipotent, surely! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A personal sacrifice early in the week can lead to far more measurable gains than expected later on -- though it will be hard for you to decide to make it at all.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may be committed to a fight this week that you don't yet truly understand, but you can do much each day to learn what you must to acquit yourself well. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- If you have the choice between being passive or active this week, you know which is for you. Very little of value can come about if you simply sit around waiting for it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Whether you are right or wrong will be only part of the dominant issue this week; how it makes you behave with others who share in your ideology is the key. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- Your beliefs hold you in very good stead this week as you are attacked for something that is so basic and essential to you that you simply cannot be harmed or defeated.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- If you make decisions based solely upon a gut feeling this week, you're sure to fall behind. A rational, thoughtful approach enables you to be competitive. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- The unexpected plays a key role in your affairs this week, and you should be more able to make appropriate adjustments on the spur of the moment than you were.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You don't have to be front and center this week in order to have a positive impact on what is going on. You can surely be influential behind the scenes. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You want to be recognized for what you do, but you also want to avoid the kind of unfair treatment that can come from notoriety. How you position yourself is the key.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- It's not so much victory you are after this week -- for you know that it may not be possible just yet -- but you need to find a true and lasting advantage. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- What you do for yourself can also benefit others this week and vice versa -- so long as you know that your own personal gains are only part of the puzzle right now.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Focus on your own motives and the motives of those whose work is closely aligned with your own and you will surely advance in the right way at the right time. (March 6-March 20) -- What you learn about yourself can be put to use almost immediately this week, and on more than one important occasion. Someone is ready to make you an offer.
