You're multitasking with the best of them on Monday, with spare energy to also come up with an innovative new plan. Your bold style gets you noticed by higher-ups now. Tuesday through Thursday are more about getting down in the trenches and dealing with the mundane (but necessary) nitty-gritty. You'll need to take your time, even though you're eager for bigger and better opportunities. A chance to take advantage of one comes on Friday, when a little charm positions you perfectly for your next move. Some downtime is definitely in order this weekend.
If someone in the workplace wants to tangle with you on Monday, try taking the moral high ground; being diplomatic looks good on you now. All through the middle of the week, work's actually fun -- and you can also network like crazy, so have those business cards, that smile and your charm at the ready. A little subtle self-promotion works wonders. Coworkers figure prominently on Friday and maybe even through the weekend. A little excitement's in the cards, but if you're socializing with colleagues, don't overdo it.
Your nimble thinking has you running in circles around someone seeking to debate you about a work matter on Monday. Your plan and objectives are so obviously superior, you don't even have to rub it in. From Tuesday through Thursday, however, you'll have to apply yourself to find full comprehension of developments in the workplace or in your field. Double-check any numbers -- and get another pair of eyeballs on them, too. Thursday evening kicks off a couple of high-functioning, high-concept days for you. Brainstorming produces electric results now.
Getting the best business tools, consultants and equipment is important, but make sure it's all in the budget before placing an order on Monday. You never know when unexpected expenses will pop up. Meetings can go particularly well from Tuesday through Thursday; wow 'em with your analysis and ability to produce accurate facts or numbers off the top of your head. Your strategic ideas and/or goals could clash with someone else's on Friday. Perhaps a little third-party mediation is in order? If a deal or a contract seems shady this weekend, heed your intuition.
You're definitely a connector on Monday, putting the right people and plans together with the greatest of ease -- and getting recognized for it, too. When you shine, you make sure everyone around you does, too. The middle part of the workweek finds you hunkered down, going over the fine print and refining your strategy. Socializing around the watercooler will have to wait. If you have equipment or HR needs around Friday, seek out the best and find another area to economize in if necessary. This weekend, you'll want to make time for a little romance!
If someone's breathing down your neck about a request or deadline on Monday, smile and turn them into a co-conspirator -- offering to speed things along a little bit goes a long way. You're a total star in the workplace from Tuesday through Thursday, with your powers of organization set to 'stunning.' Launching new projects now, too, is a breeze. Watch for an unexpected bonus. By Friday, though, your goal-setting may be drifting into unrealistic territory. Take the weekend to ponder plans and adjust objectives -- they can be ambitious but still feasible.
Work on a creative project on Monday, and enlist an assistant or colleague to take on the specifics. Your take on the big picture is inspired now. From Tuesday through Thursday, you're seeing aspects of plans, contracts or presentations that others aren't perceptive enough to catch. You're an amazing asset, but you may also feel like others aren't pulling their weight. By Friday, however, balance in the workplace is restored -- someone's at the ready exactly when you need their expertise. If you've got to work this weekend, put romance in your planner as well.
Butting heads with your boss is a definite possibility on Monday, but think about how far you want to push this. Mutual respect is more important than this one issue. You're on top of both short- and long-term planning from Tuesday through Thursday, and you're finding a way to give a favorite coworker an advantage as well. It'll come back to you sooner than you might think. Be your own personal think tank on Friday, and if you're asked to get specific, get a little more time. The weekend's good for tossing ideas around.
Your powers of communication are stellar on Monday, so send that email, make those calls or slay that presentation. Big gains are in the stars now. Around the middle of the workweek, however, there's some danger of getting ahead of yourself. Look at your timeline, consult your planner and be realistic about completion dates; accounting for the lag time of others is a necessary evil. By end of business Thursday, you're back at the top of your game, and the next few days find you the apple of your group's eye -- and your boss', too.
Monday could find your computer crashing, or someone making a grab for your resources, or your numbers failing to add up -- or all three. Some innovative problem solving is in order, and maybe so is heading home early. From Tuesday through Thursday, fact-finding and research are very fruitful, and a long-distance connection can be a great resource. Kicking off a new project is favored on Friday, but wait until it proves itself prior to pushing for that promotion and/or raise. Working this weekend holds challenges, so plan for low productivity.
A work relationship is shifting on Monday, and it's fully within your power to push it in an advantageous direction. Think compromise; it's all about mutual back-scratching now.

Beginning on Friday and through the weekend, the possibilities for networking are myriad. Smile and act enthusiastic -- real enthusiasm will follow when you start getting the connections.
Keep the gossip about the weekend to a minimum on Monday. There's some drama developing that you'll be glad not to be a part of.

Balance the books and do some additional budget forecasting to avoid an unexpected crunch later.
