Your Horoscope: By Denise Guzzardo
Week of August 21-27, 2002
This Week: The full moon arrives on the 22nd of this month. However, you may begin to feel the tension as early as the 18th because of the interaction between the sun and Uranus. On the 24th, Mars and Uranus clash, causing confrontational, strange, unusual or volatile behavior. Knowing this, please make every attempt to think before you act or speak. Reactions could be severe.
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Even though it appears that someone is dangling the carrot in front of your nose, you must expect the best at this time. All offers or aspects begin to culminate now. Expect to receive favorable blessings; avoid dark and negative people now. Try not to clash with siblings or neighbors. Wait until after the 26th to deal with adversity. Your diplomatic approach will win the hearts of others.
TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Unexpected news creates the shock wave aspect that may ripple into other areas of your life. This is a blessing in disguise, and in the fall, it will be apparent how all the puzzle pieces fit. Additional training or schooling is advantageous now. Your communication skills run smoothly as silk, and youre able to comfort others, Taurus.
GEMINI (May 21 to June 22) Take a step back, and center yourself now. Restrict communication with those who are antagonizing you or making you feel inadequate. After the 24th, you will feel like a major weight has lifted. Expect a highly active social schedule over the next two weeks. Pleasant conversation, music and creative aspects lift your spirits. Your significant other holds you in the highest regard, Gemini.
CANCER (June 23 to July 22) Do you feel like you want what you cant have? Perhaps its not worth having after all. The annoying energies that would surround this long haul may not be worth it. Take one step at a time this week; you will accomplish more in the long run. Avoid aggressive individuals around the full moon. Stay home and close with those who mean the most to you, Cancer.
LEO (July 23 to Aug.22) Early in the week you may not feel comfortable in your own skin. Try exercise to relieve yourself of excessive anxiety. The 22nd through the 26th are significant days. You can hang your hat on any star that shines upon you now. Receive love and compliments. Yes, you are all that now!
VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Idle threats about changing your lifestyle or the conditions of it are falling upon deaf ears. Time to take some action. This is the only way youll get results. You and your significant other need to see eye to eye on this aspect. Run this past them first before you launch your battleship. Recognition for a job well done is received through the work force. A change of employment may be evident for many Virgos at this time.
LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Although you feel that your concerns have fallen upon deaf ears, another is taking your thoughts and feelings into consideration. Be patient as a key player in your life accesses a situation and follows through with the solution. Set a time limit for this aspect to be resolved. This lunar cycle will tell the tale of what is yet to come. Children and pets have your undivided attention.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) A completion of a project puts your mind at ease. Anothers lack of initiative may be annoying to you. Its best not to push. It appears that they are healing from the inside out. Avoid aggressive individuals. Surround yourself with trustworthy people. A hothead could try to push your buttons.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) You may feel like youre tap dancing to keep everybody happy at this time. Make sure your own self preservation is on your list of things to do this week. A family member maybe looking for a fight. Make sure youre steering clear of this individual. Romance is back on track, and your social schedule triggers favorable interaction with you and your significant other, Sag.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 20) Youre waiting for a response from a highly active male regarding work. Your request is granted by months end; an increase in pay or responsibility will be presented. Make certain that you clarify what is expected of you. Boundaries need to be set in all areas of your life now, personal and professional, Capricorn.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 to Feb. 19) Claim your own weaknesses and responsibilities for your actions now. Projecting blame on others regarding past issues gets you nowhere. Protecting or covering up anothers screw-up does not help them in the long run. Many of you may find that you need some emotional support now. Seek the help of a professional to help you heal an old wound or reoccurring problem.
