The coming week will require of most individuals a higher level of circumspection, sensitivity and overall awareness of surroundings and dynamics than usual, as situations arise that may possibly put relationships to the test and bring out both the best and worst in those involved. It's essential that no one act prematurely upon receiving only partial information; one must have the whole story before devising a plan in response! Acting on incomplete intelligence is sure to cause difficulties -- especially when someone tries to step in and solve a problem that really never existed in the first place! The week ahead is likely to prove difficult enough for many without having others make things worse through reckless and irresponsible behavior -- even if it is well-meaning and well-intentioned!
Some may be asked to do the impossible, and some will display a level of responsibility that is extraordinary, but necessary to the overall success of some venture or other. Wherever something new is being tried, extreme patience and tolerance will be required of almost everyone, and any natural tendency to overreact in such situations must be controlled at all times.
