The coming week is likely to present numerous situations that require individuals to be more diligent when it comes to following the rules and maintaining behavior that is appropriate and above reproach. Troubles arise midweek that are not easily anticipated or imagined, and everyone must be ready to shift gears and move in different directions in order to address them in a productive manner. Your travel patterns will be important all week long.
Those with an ability to work and play well with others will make a great deal of progress this week, and they are likely to find themselves allied with unlikely individuals who seek to achieve similar ends.
