The coming week is likely to see people working together in new ways in order to reach goals that are themselves new in one respect only: What once were individual intentions are now, for any number of reasons, communal ones that require cooperation, collaboration and carefully integrated teamwork. There is much on the line right now. A group bond, if genuine, can result in things this week that may never have been dreamed of before, and it’s all because where one goes many will follow, and vice versa.
The simplest is always the best, say some, and this week’s events and triumphs are almost certainly going to prove the adage -- though “simple” may be very different for two different people. Still, the idea holds fast.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- You can be instrumental in changing the course of a project that’s gotten stuck in recent weeks. A decision you make jump-starts everyone’s efforts. (April 5-April 19) -- Your work with a favorite collaborator yields fruit this week, but not according to the timeline you’ve made. You’re going to have to improvise a little when pressed.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You’re not likely to be fooled by an old, ineffective idea simply because it’s being presented in a new fashion. This week you must trust your instincts. (May 6-May 20) -- You know who you can count on this week, and who you cannot -- though you may be surprised by at least one person’s shifting loyalty. You have many questions to ask.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- The changes you’re trying to make to things that mean the most to you can result in something very big this week. Gathering allies may be tricker than expected. (June 7-June 20) -- A change is in the air, and this week you can decide to join others to accelerate it or work on your own to slow it down. You know which choice is the right one.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- It may take a while for you to center yourself as the week begins, but a vision of what is possible compels you to do all you can to perform well. (July 8-July 22) -- What seems at first to be a publicity stunt comes around later in the week as something serious that demands your attention. You may attract a lot of publicity at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You have the ability this week to pull together the forces required to do something that can be ready to wrap up before the week is closed. Get moving early! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A mess made by someone else quite a while ago is likely to slow you down this week unless you do what you can to clean it up before your efforts are ready to accelerate.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- An issue you are facing is about more than approval and good feelings. You are standing at a crossroads, and what you do this week may be long remembered. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You’re entering a transitional period, and what you do this week will affect others just as much as yourself. You can do much to protect those who join you now.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You may find yourself at the center of a whirlwind of activity this week, but what it means may not be fully understood for some time. Stay the course. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- Your suspicions about a certain development may well be confirmed early in the week, and despite contradictory reports, you’ll know what your next move must be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- A decision you make as the week begins may be misunderstood or misinterpreted by those around you. A quick fix isn’t what you need. You must dig deep! (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may find it difficult to focus on the primary issues you are facing because of the distractions thrown in your way by others. It’s likely time to set new boundaries.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- Any response to unfair practices that misrepresents what you really feel must be avoided this week. Now is no time to promote division. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Progress can be made this week in small increments as well as broad strokes -- but what really matters is the tone you adopt when working with those who usually stand against you.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Any kind of fight you join this week will be one of high moral import -- though you may not know it at the time. This is surely to prove bigger than you! (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You may be the cause of a temporary rift between allies this week, but it’s likely to prove necessary in order to further a group agenda that you wholeheartedly back.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You acknowledge the risk that you are facing this week, but despite the warnings of others, you’re ready to move forward to reach a key personal goal. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You can do much to further someone else’s agenda this week, but it will take more than desire. You must be willing to do a few things you recently wouldn’t consider.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Honest talk early in the week can get some things moving, but not everything. You’re going to have to prioritize and uphold those priorities -- come what will. (March 6-March 20) -- This week opens on a note of very high potential, and you’re more than willing to see where that leads you. Others will join you if your motives remain true.
