The coming week is likely to disappoint on one hand and satisfy on the other in ways that come as no surprise to those who accept the waxing and waning of good fortune as simply the way of the world. Those whose tendency is to fight against trends will not be able to face the week with the same kind of calm and will react far more dramatically both to a lapse in fortune and the good luck that will most certainly follow it.
Some may find that it's virtually impossible to prove that what they believe is true this week, but that doesn't mean it's not worth the try. All can benefit from open and honest discussion at this time, and learning can be accelerated for those who are willing to talk about what really matters -- now and in the future.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Those with whom you share a great deal will rise to the occasion and lift you up this week. Your own efforts can seal the deal when work comes to an end. (April 5-April 19) -- You know how to follow the rules, but you also know how to bend them just enough so that they give you a greater advantage, and this week you'll do that quite often.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A long-standing problem is foremost in your mind throughout the week, and you should be able to come up with a creative solution that works perfectly! (May 6-May 20) -- You have a great deal going for you this week, but those doubts that you've had such a hard time shedding are likely to cause you some delays. Don't underestimate yourself!
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Environmental influences aren't likely to give you what you want this week, but instead of fighting against the inevitable, why not go somewhere else? (June 7-June 20) -- You're tempted to go all in this week and challenge those you're up against by being unusually bold. This may be something of which you want to make a habit, possibly.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You may spend a great deal of energy seeking a way out of a difficult situation -- but success will depend on your ability to ease up just at the right moment. (July 8-July 22) -- You're not likely to find what you want where you expect it to be, but you may not have the opportunity this week to search far and wide. That time will come -- soon.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- A personal sacrifice is likely to pay off this week far more handsomely than you had hoped, thanks to someone who understands exactly what's at stake for you. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may have trouble keeping others in line, but the resulting frustration must not be allowed to bleed over into other aspects of your week. Keep things compartmentalized.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You're not likely to be as strong-willed and confident this week as you have been in the recent past, but you'll find valuable help in an unusual place. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may have to put certain things off this week while you address issues that continue to upset the status quo. A creative approach can yield positive results.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You won't be able to finish your own primary tasks this week until others have finished making their contributions to your efforts. Patience is a virtue! (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You'll have to make it clear to those working with you this week that there are only a few certain ways to do what has to be done. You must insist on discipline.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Now is not the time to be impatient with someone who is trying to learn from you. What you have to offer is complex and valuable; take necessary time. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may discover this week that you have much more support than originally expected, but take care that you don't actually wind up with too much of a good thing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You're willing to put in the work necessary to become an expert at something few others can do, but your efforts may have to extend beyond this week. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can shower others with all that they want and need this week, but take care that you aren't neglecting yourself in the process. Balance is the key.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- A mismanaged conversation early in the week makes things difficult for you later on -- but you can make amends and move on quickly. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may find it difficult to walk a straight and narrow path this week because of how many others are bending and breaking the rules. You needn't stoop to that kind of behavior!
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- As you gravitate this week toward those who share your outlook and ambitions, you'll want to determine what sets you apart. That matters most right now! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- Give others the time of day and they'll give it to you when you require it. This week, all manner of reciprocal arrangements can help you move ahead as planned.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- No one is likely to challenge you directly this week, but you can still fall from the No. 1 spot simply by making a few unforced errors. Stay focused! (March 6-March 20) -- You may sense that all week long someone is trying to reach you, but you cannot make the first move. You must be patient and let things develop in an organic fashion.
