The coming week is likely to require of most individuals far more cooperation and collaboration than usual, and the willingness and ability to learn quickly in a fully immersive manner. Projects of all sorts this week will involve a steep learning curve. Some may feel as though they have made decisions recently that are working against them, but this is just insecurity rearing its head -- which is likely to prove the most common and possibly hazardous response to the week’s work. The truth is that no one need fear what lies ahead.
This week offers a chance for some to prove themselves in new ways -- and anyone who is able to make the most of either personal or professional opportunities can very possibly enjoy unexpected rewards when all is said and done. This can put one in a fine position for negotiating future compensation; what is valuable now can and should be even more valuable in the future!
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You are not likely to respond well to any kind of affectation or deception this week. Insist on being dealt with in a direct, open and honest fashion. (April 5-April 19) -- The more down to earth you can be this week, the closer you will get to a permanent solution to a rather trying problem. Not everyone knows what you’re going through.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- That which no one else will do may be perfect for you this week, as you’re ready and willing to immerse yourself in the unexpected, unusual or controversial. (May 6-May 20) -- A journey begins this week that you can either be a part of or observe from a safe distance. Both approaches teach you much, but the latter offers a most valuable challenge.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Are you willing to do what is necessary this week to keep a small problem from becoming a big one? A permanent fix may involve a confrontation of sorts. (June 7-June 20) -- You may not know where you are headed this week, but the signs all suggest that you’ll be better off at the end of the journey. Follow your instincts, but avoid prejudice.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- Tension can be eased this week one step at a time. If you try to do too much at once, you’ll actually be working against the grain and making things worse. (July 8-July 22) -- Whether you’re the first or the last to make up your mind this week, you’ll be in an advantageous position simply because you have decided what’s what for yourself.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You may not be playing a prominent role this week, but what you do will affect everyone at every level of involvement. Many situations are very familiar. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You’re likely to receive more than one pledge of loyalty this week, as you work to put together a crack team that can soon address a problem you’ve watched develop over time.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- Anything you attempt this week will teach you something about yourself -- and, in some cases, you’ll uncover essential information about others as well. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- Keep your mind open to all possibilities this week and you’re sure to score a major personal success. Doing something in an unorthodox manner can pay off handsomely.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may not feel completely balanced as the week opens, but as you put together a certain project, you’ll find yourself stronger every step of the way. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You’ll acquit yourself this week doing what comes naturally, though you may be tempted to step out of your comfort zone in order to please someone new to the group.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Take care that you don’t approach emergent situations so seriously that you’re unable to recognize when one or another is actually doing you some good! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A situation you addressed last week is likely to lead directly to one this week that is more difficult to comprehend. Don’t let others take what’s rightfully yours.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You’re eager to get the best out of what you are facing this week, but you’ll have to do a little soul-searching to ensure you’re on the right track. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- A certain desire proves difficult to overlook or ignore this week. Take care that you don’t let yourself be led into a temptation that can turn against you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You receive a proposition early in the week that you must weigh carefully day by day until you understand fully what is implied. An answer comes quickly. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Continuing along your current path may involve bending or even breaking the rules in some circumstances. Is this something you can adequately explain?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You may find yourself behind the eight ball as the week opens, but some clever strategizing can get you out of this bind and leave you with a clear advantage. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- That which is obvious to others may be quite opaque to you -- at first. You’ll spend plenty of time this week figuring out exactly what it is you’re not understanding.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Business and pleasure are not likely to mix this week -- at least not in the way you had hoped. You know which must come first among your priorities. (March 6-March 20) -- You will want to lead by example this week, and not merely by providing others with instructions or answers. A hands-on approach is existentially satisfying!
