The coming week is likely to afford most, if not all, the opportunity to see certain key issues in a new light, and to take action that reestablishes as status quo that which may have been lost in the past to doubt, uncertainty and an unwillingness to take a stand. This week, however, taking a stand will be very much a part of every job done well -- and those who attempt to finish a job without putting their beliefs on the line in some way are likely to come up short.
It's a good week for those with a penchant for reflection to turn their attention inward and determine what, if anything, can be done to solidify that which has not yet been affirmed, and to eradicate that which has proved itself no longer timely but which hangs on stubbornly. Answers that lie within can surely be applied to many issues without this week.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- Your immediate environment -- especially where you work -- could use a once-over. Take the time this week to make changes you've long looked forward to. (April 5-April 19) -- You're in no position to call the shots this week, nor are you eager simply to do what you are told. This proves a quandary until a friend steps in to help you.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- You'll be interested to learn this week who is in the club with you, and how you find out provides some entertainment. A tough question is answered. (May 6-May 20) -- Doing the same old thing this week can actually provide you with the opportunity to look at things differently -- which you should do in order to up your game.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- Collective efforts can pay off this week, but only if you're willing to share both responsibility and credit with others. Try to be generous. (June 7-June 20) -- You are far more interested in quantity than quality, and this week that should give you a certain advantage over those who are thinking only in terms of the numbers.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- As you reach for more this week, you'll have to be careful that you don't overextend, as there is more than you know at stake. Guard against emotional injury. (July 8-July 22) -- You are better off dividing your work week into equal parts so that your efforts are easily measurable and you don't risk putting too much into any one goal or project.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- You're getting used to something you thought you'd never have to get used to, and in the process this week, you're also learning that you're capable of more. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- How you handle a personal situation early in the week can inspire others -- but you will want to avoid getting involved in their affairs, even if you are asked.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You can expect others to complain to you about certain policies and protocols, but it's not up to you to change anything yet. That time will come. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- It may seem rather soon to review certain past activities, but you'll learn a lot and should be in a position to redo certain things and get far better results.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- You're in a tough position, but as the week continues, you should be able to spy more and more opportunities to improve things -- temporarily and for good. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may find yourself waiting for someone else to fill in the blanks for you, when in fact your imagination can do a fine job -- and in far less time, too.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- How you work with a loyal ally will make all the difference this week, and how you deal with a rival will allow you to do even more to further your agenda. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- A recent improvement begins to take effect this week, and you'll find your spirits lifted and even your ability to make quick decisions improved. Make a big plan.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You are likely only to progress apace this week when an obstacle you've lately ignored is addressed head-on. You can no longer live in the past. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Early in the week you may experience only limited results, but later on, things should improve dramatically. It's a matter of waiting for the right timing.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- You mustn't believe those who tell you that your time is up, for you still have plenty of opportunities this very week to make the right things happen. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- Take the time to give someone precisely what they want this week -- as only you can. Once this has the desired effect, you can focus more squarely on your own affairs.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You must be able to see things from a fresher perspective this week if you're going to parlay a past success into a new one. Don't get held back. (Feb. 3-Feb. 18) -- You must prepare yourself for a shellacking this week if you're not able to improve your game with some up-to-date techniques. You don't want to be left behind, do you?
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- You must learn to leave well enough alone when you are not the one making things happen. Hovering and making a nuisance of yourself will never do. (March 6-March 20) -- Once you're able to see someone else's efforts for what they really are, you'll be off and running. This week you certainly needn't settle for second place.
