March 26-April 1, 2012: Try to be sensitive to others and what can potentially stress them out this week. Adjust. It doesn't have to head into an argument or the countless 'next' world war. It's not always that bad, but it's a time when the unexpected can just reach out and grab you at a moment's notice. Sure, things may be tense here and there this week, making you wonder what's up and what's not. Just try to stay calm and rational. Logically look at things and see how you may have unwittingly created even a part of the problem. If you've blown it, apologize. That won't kill you, will it?
Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn, are tensions rising again? Try to keep a clear head and think about what could happen next. Above all, don't transfer your fears and anxieties and then wonder what happened. It's bound to be a week when unexpected tensions could give rise to those volcanic eruptions you really didn't want to face. So you deal! Breathe, deal, and see where you're going wrong. On Friday especially, things may come to a head. Keep the emotional freak out to a minimum and try to hear what the other person is saying. It will pass, and you can close out the week by mending instead of burning those bridges.
Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius, warm and genuine feelings are possible on Monday. It's a great way to transition into a new week, isn't it? If you're feeling some of the tensions others are projecting, try to remember that you don't have to absorb it. Keep a cheery mindset, be compassionate with others, and lend a helping hand if that's what seems to be the right thing to do. From Tuesday through Thursday, it's possible to get caught up in a lot of mindless chatter. Be patient. Use these days for brainstorming because making things happen can be sticky right now.
The art of communication may be quite high on your list this week, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, especially from Tuesday through Thursday. Tuesday can start out with confusion to be sorted out. Tensions can begin to rise by Tuesday evening. Do what you can to make repairs while things are calm again on Wednesday, but understand that it may not be possible to fix the damage just yet. Try to stay on level ground on Thursday morning when your interactions may once again be pretty sketchy at best. If you're getting the brunt of the energy, go with the flow and accept that in the meantime. -- Michelle Young
