You get the best of these challenging influences this week. This may be because you are out of the firing line or because your temperament is well suited to dealing with bolshy people and walking away from an impasse. On the other hand, if you cannot avoid a run-in of some description, use it as an opportunity to show how magnanimous you can be. Travel could be particularly trying, whether journeys are long and exhausting or there are delays and other problems. Give yourself plenty of time to reach destinations, and look for the nugget of gold in events that come out of left field.
