The coming week will shape up according to plan for most individuals. What's more important, however, is that some will find that their plans are not going to pan out, no matter how well-structured and foolproof they may seem, and that is likely to affect many others in various ways. Yes, even those who are blessed by the stars with smooth sailing are likely to be surprised by certain developments as a result of what happens to a minority who are not. This brings home the notion, of course, that everything -- and everyone -- is interconnected. Some may cry "foul" because of this, and it may indeed seem to them as though things have been rigged in some way -- but in fact what happens is the result of natural forces at work.
Those who know how to combat this ripple effect will enjoy a productive week, and anyone who is willing to learn from them can progress swiftly as well. Those who do nothing but complain will have a hard time of it because, as always, complaints get nothing done. Doing something is what really counts.
