The coming week will see a great many individuals getting in touch with figures from the past -- those who have contributed in significant ways to personal or professional growth, or who have simply been there during memorable times. Everyone will want to reach out to a special friend at some point, and the opportunities for doing so will be many -- and the balance of work and play will be conducive to lengthy communication in some cases. There is more to this exercise than mere nostalgia; in some cases, contact with someone from the past can change the trajectory of one's life in significant ways. A few may discover that while they've been on the wrong path for quite a while, the right path is now accessible -- and can be taken immediately!
