The coming week is likely to begin earlier than expected, in that much that was of concern last week, or even the week before, may carry over to this week requiring a continuity of thought and action that results in the inescapable sense that things have just progressed sans interruption into this new seven-day span. In some cases, this may all be quite true, and work done this week is in fact a continuation of work done before. In others, however, it may only be a quirk of perception that has individuals feeling like there has been no break.
Interpersonal relations are likely to heat up in many cases, requiring far more sensitivity and a willingness on the part of many individuals to think as another thinks or even feel as they feel as well.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- It’s a good week to look back at what you’ve done in the weeks just past and unpack all that you think you understand. You’ll uncover a few big surprises. (April 5-April 19) -- Putting pressure on a rival puts pressure on yourself as well, so be sure you’re ready to do what is going to have immediate ramifications. You don’t live in a vacuum!
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- While you tend to someone else’s business this week, you can take the opportunity to reflect on your own position. Pinpoint things that will change soon. (May 6-May 20) -- You may have to play a doubleheader this week as you tend to one thing successfully only to be thrown into something else immediately -- and perhaps unexpectedly.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You may be surprised this week as you deal with someone who seems to know you better than you know yourself. Try a new approach; results may surpass expectations. (June 7-June 20) -- You need more than you think you do at this time, and this week you can begin to check things off the list one by one. Start small and build momentum as you progress.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- A few simple memories bring more excitement to your week -- or at least the semblance of it. Indeed, a few past episodes are worth reviewing in detail. (July 8-July 22) -- It’s not that you want to live in the past, it’s just that past encounters and accomplishments are likely more interesting to you than anything new you have in the works.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You are likely to find yourself immersed in a situation this week that requires you to behave as if you have more information than you actually do. Use caution! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- Take care you don’t fall for a deception that is promoted by experts this week. It may be time for you to go it alone, at least for a while. Pack your bags!
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- If it’s not what you want, you don’t have to pay for it -- so take the time this week to assess whether all spending is really needed. Avoid impulse buying! (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- If you want to stay afloat at this time, you’re going to have to do more than you’ve been doing -- and a few new endeavors are going to be outside of your wheelhouse.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- Follow another down an unfamiliar path this week and you’ll be ready for something new that comes your way just as the weekend passes into memory. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- What you expect this week isn’t likely to come to pass -- at least not the way you have been anticipating it for quite some time. You must be ready to improvise a bit.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Getting all your duties done this week should be as simple as “one, two, three,” though none may prove quite as easy as expected. The difference is palpable. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You may need some coaching this week as you face something for which you’re not entirely ready. Choose the right mentor and you should be able to proceed at a fast pace.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You’re going to have to figure out a way this week to deal with a problem that’s been holding you back for too long. You must make progress soon! (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You can cause quite a ruckus this week by doing what you’ve long planned, but take care you don’t have a run-in with someone whose success depends upon your failure.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Your analysis of a certain situation is almost certain to help those working with you -- or near you -- all week long. Others adopt your point of view. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You can shower those close to you with all manner of things they require this week, but you must also keep your own needs squarely in mind. Sometimes these are in sync.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You can turn on a dime this week and turn a defensive posture into far more aggressive action than you’ve taken in the past. You get something done! (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may have trouble putting the pieces of a puzzle together this week, but you don’t know what the overall picture is supposed to look like. It’s time to investigate.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- Execution this week is tantamount to education, as you’ll certainly learn by doing. Take care that you don’t make hasty assumptions. (March 6-March 20) -- Travel may be in the picture, but you’ve got to be sure that all your ducks are in a row before setting out. Your usual means of transport may not be available.
