Week of July 22-28, 2009<.i>
This Week: Sheesh! The full moon eclipse Aug. 5 and 6 in Aquarius will be the last of the bombardment of emotional static for a while. In fact, this is a fabulous time to focus and manifest exactly what you want out of life. Your long-term goals, dreams and ambitions can be acknowledged with a little encouragement from the universe. Positive re-enforcement through your heart and mind will be key.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Romance has been a bit on the shaky side for a while now. It may be a good idea to retrace your steps and start from square one with another. By allowing your shortcomings to come to light, you will be back on track before the holidays arrive. A financial windfall will be evident this week. Set some money aside for a rainy day. Long-distance communication is highlighted.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—Financial pressures will be lifting shortly, allowing you some extra breathing room. Your concerns about the health of another may be weighing heavily on your mind. Your prayers will shortly be answered. Trust the universe to get the job done, and take care of yourself during this stressful time. You can’t afford to become worn down. Your strength is important to your long-term goals and dreams.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Romantic pressure will continue to be an issue if you don’t get off your high horse and play fair with another. Control or manipulation will get you nowhere, other than on the outside looking in. As we move into fall, that may be a chilly place to be. You must learn to give and take a bit. A financial advantage is on the way. Be generous with your blessings.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Business may start out rocky early this week. However, expect this to turn around in your favor by week’s end. You are about to receive a beautiful blessing, one that will take your breath away. When all is said and done, you’re on top of the world, and you’re able to see the end of the rainbow. Grab that little leprechaun, and take what’s rightfully yours.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Romance is about to take a major turn for the better. You can see evidence of a loving energy. Your significant other is willing to make things right with a friend or family member; encourage this behavior. You cannot be put in the middle of your loved ones in that fashion. This isn’t healthy for anyone. Take a step back from overspending. Don’t be bamboozled out of your hard-earned cash.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Back to the mundane schedule, and nobody will be happier about that than you. You have been spread so thin you don’t even remember what your home and family look like. Now, there will be plenty of time for friendship and romance, and you feel much more lighthearted with the sun in Sagittarius. A business deal is about to take shape and form in your favor. This is financially advantageous.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You may be taking on a little bit more than you’re used to handling, financially or emotionally. This is only a temporary situation that will become a quick fix for another. To make a loved one’s life a little bit easier will be the best karma you can draw to you. Long-distance communication is very informative.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You need to recognize the stress a loved one is under and do what you can to make his or her life a little bit easier. The party is over, and it’s time to hit the books, so to speak, and plan your long-term goals. Emotional disturbances need to be handled with love and care. Don’t manipulate or allow another to manipulate you. Set proper boundaries.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Your time has arrived to shine! Take full advantage of what the universe is preparing to offer you. The past two weeks have been quite exhausting and emotional, so anything would seem better than that. However, this was a test that you have passed to allow you to grab the brass ring. Some of you may be leaving a friendship or relationship behind. Don’t look back.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Your social sector is expanding as well as your personal growth. Romantic elements radiate through the month of August. A financial problem will be resolved in your favor. Stick to your guns.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—You may have felt a little bit melancholy after this past weekend. Missing friends or family members could send you into a bit of a spin. By week’s end, this will diminish, and you’re able to focus on your work and home life more productively. Communication from the past will definitely lift your spirits.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Enough of the past. You’re coming into a very positive cycle where new friends and new beginnings are available to you. You don’t want to be presenting yourself in a negative light. An offer of work or an upgrade will put you in the best frame of mind. Put your best foot forward. All eyes are on you, for good or for bad.
