Your Stars This Week by Stella Wilder

Your Stars This Week For February 21, 2021

ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Take care that in the name of generosity you're not giving away what you could provide for a competitive price. Balance the personal and professional. (April 5-April 19) -- You may be faced with something of a personal emergency just as you get started this week, but all should be resolved quickly, allowing you to get back to work.

TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- Your attempts to make ends meet this week will require you to do things in a new way -- but take care that you don't simply give up on traditional methods. (May 6-May 20) -- Things aren't likely to proceed according to plan this week if you're unwilling to adjust when faced with the unexpected. Stubbornness is no way to bolster productivity.

GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You will almost surely have more to do this week than originally expected, as responsibilities multiply and your awareness of possibilities is expanded. (June 7-June 20) -- You mustn't be a servant to methods that no longer work for you -- nor must you blindly do as you are told. A willingness to strike out in a new direction will be rewarded.

CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- You're used to having plenty of time to do what has to be done, but this week opens in a manner that robs you of extra minutes or hours. Get to work quickly! (July 8-July 22) -- You can afford to explore original methods this week as you tend to your assigned duties. The right people will surely pay attention -- and appreciate your efforts.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Though you may not feel inspired this week, you can still get things done -- and with a certain flair, as well. Many will wonder how you do it! (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- A personal mystery waits to be solved this week. Before you go looking for clues, you must equip yourself with all appropriate tools -- and prepare yourself for a few surprises.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You may be surprised by the financial impact of a certain past decision -- but it's not too late this week to go back and change what needs to be changed. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- You may feel pressured by expectations this week, and the only way to liberate yourself is to recognize how you stand to gain from your efforts. Make it all about you!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- The personal and the professional may not mix effectively this week. You must be willing to make a small sacrifice somewhere in order to keep up the pace. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You're eager to learn just what waits for you at the end of the line, but that information is delivered on a "need to know" basis, and that may not include you just yet.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- What begins as cooperation this week turns into competition before you know it -- and you must be ready to be a little ruthless as you race to the finish line. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You know what you can do, but it's important you know what someone else is capable of as well. You can make a viable plan by putting the two together in a new way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- The quicker you start this week, the sooner you'll have things done to your satisfaction -- but it's really someone else you need to satisfy, isn't it? (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- You must take some time to assess the abilities of both your teammates and rivals. It's likely to dawn on you that you can only progress by going it alone.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Routine affairs take up more of your time this week than usual. You must be sure to keep no one waiting since you tend to things in order of priority. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll receive a vote of confidence this week that gives you all you need to do what no one else has been able to do. Personal affairs are of increased significance as well.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You'll want to keep accurate records and assess your own performance regularly throughout the week, just in case you are asked to explain yourself later on. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- You may have no choice but to follow the rules this week -- but you can do so in a way that lets others know that you are, and always will be, true to yourself.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You may be startled into a new phase of activity as the week opens, but you cannot keep going on panic mode. Once you calm down, the real work begins. (March 6-March 20) -- You will think you have things well in hand during the first part of the week, but a midweek surprise has you rethinking your methods. A new plan takes shape quickly.
