The coming week is likely to involve a great many individuals in activities that they may have reason to anticipate with some degree of dread, and yet when all is said and done, those same individuals are just as likely to look back on the experience positively, even fondly, for there are certain definite gains to be enjoyed in the doing of them.
Many will have the opportunity to work closely with those who have very different goals and many different methods as to how to reach them. This can be tricky at first, as no one will know immediately just how, or how much, to compromise, but those who listen more than they talk will discover what is to be done as a matter of course, and difficulties should be rendered easy.
ARIES (March 21-April 4) -- The tools you usually use to get something done may not be available to you this week until it's too late. Some clever improvisation can save the day. (April 5-April 19) -- You understand the risks inherent in what you have planned this week, but you may not be considering how they may affect others. This is something to approach with care.
TAURUS (April 20-May 5) -- A journey is simple to imagine, but when you get on the road, you may realize there's more to it than you had anticipated. Fortunately, you're well prepared. (May 6-May 20) -- You'll feel the pull that someone is exerting, especially early in the week, but you should be able to mount effective resistance. There's no reason to go down that path.
GEMINI (May 21-June 6) -- You must pay attention to all that goes on around you this week if you're to enjoy the maximum possible payoff. Miss even a little, and you'll make far less. (June 7-June 20) -- An open and honest talk with someone whose thinking is significantly different from your own can result in a compromise that pays off handsomely as the week comes to a close.
CANCER (June 21-July 7) -- The more you know about your immediate environment, the more you can accomplish this week -- because you'll be able to anticipate events that affect you most. (July 8-July 22) -- Information you receive throughout the week can certainly be trusted, but is it enough? You're going to want to mount an aggressive investigation of your own, no doubt.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 7) -- Someone who knows you quite well can provide you with the tools you need to face a coming challenge, but your confidence needs a boost as well. (Aug. 8-Aug. 22) -- You may not be showered with accolades this week, but the praise you get will be enough to energize you as you face a new challenge. Share your methods with others.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 7) -- You'll have the chance to renew your commitment to something that brings you consistent gains -- but this week's efforts may be a bit more complicated than usual. (Sept. 8-Sept. 22) -- A partner likely has a new idea to offer, but you're going to have to have the proper mindset in order to hear it and assess it honestly. You must make time for this.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 7) -- From the professional to the recreational, your endeavors this week are likely to have more of an immediate impact than usual. Lean into the positive ones. (Oct. 8-Oct. 22) -- You may be resistant to someone else's offer of a compromise during the first few days of the week, but soon you'll see the wisdom of coming together to reach most goals.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 7) -- Your view of the week ahead may be somewhat skewed as a result of unrealistic expectations. These can be amended just in time, raising your odds of success. (Nov. 8-Nov. 21) -- You are likely to find yourself invited into a new work group this week, and what you have to offer is more than just a fresh perspective. Your skills can really pay off.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 7) -- You may be seeking a way to avoid what is to come this week -- but you're seeing things in a negative light unnecessarily. An objective view serves everyone well. (Dec. 8-Dec. 21) -- Once you've decided to take part in something new this week, you'll be in it for the duration, so don't even think you can back out when the going gets tough.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 6) -- Take care that you don't confuse those around you this week by changing your mind about something that seems straightforward. You must stay the course. (Jan. 7-Jan. 19) -- You'll receive news that sets you off down a path you had not anticipated. This will be good for you, as you'll be compelled to deal with a few key personal issues.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 3) -- You mustn't let someone else's unwillingness about something affect your enthusiasm. You're on the right path, and what you do this week can score big. (Feb. 4-Feb. 18) -- It's time to start making specific, detailed plans about something that is no longer simply theoretical. It's going to happen, and you must be ready to captain the ship.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 5) -- The arrival of someone who can take the pressure off is more than welcome this week, but this person may raise unexpected issues that cannot be ignored. (March 6-March 20) -- Now is not the time to put off what begs to be done right now. Any procrastination -- for any reason -- can prove dangerous to your endeavors and the cause you've embraced.
