Your Horoscope: Week of July 29- Aug. 4, 2009
This Week: The full moon Aug. 5-6 in Aquarius will be the last of these highly-charged vibrations everyone has been feeling in the air. Harmonious connections will follow. This is a great time to look at your long-term goals, dreams and ambitions. The ability to manifest what you want out of life is within your reach. Many of you have been hearing this rumor about the two moons in the sky and it being a sign of the “end of the world” Aug. 27. Evidently, Mars is supposed to be as big as the moon. However, this is only with a telescope and not with the naked eye. For more information regarding the Mars hoax, go to www.adlerplanetarium.org/docs/Adler_MarsHoax.pdf.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Once you get past Wednesday, you will find things falling into place more quickly than you had anticipated. Delays will only help you to be at the right place at the right time. Try not to be too frustrated; the universe is setting you up for a major positive impact. Friday, you’re connecting with a person from your past. This will be a very humorous, as well as emotional, experience.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—Some positive news regarding your home environment will be arriving this week. This helps you to see that delays have been in place for a reason, and now everything is falling into place. A past romantic relationship may be on your mind this week. His or her behavior confuses you, and you’re not sure what his or her motive is. Let him/her do all of the talking. Your answer will surely come out during the course of the conversation.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Romance is very positive this week. After a long, drawn-out struggle, you’re able to see the benefits of this relationship and how much it means to you. Outside influences have been a major source of irritation for you. Continue to set boundaries with those who may mean to harm you or your significant other. No one can conquer an undivided force.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—You’re definitely at the top of your game this week. You have plenty of choices to improve the quality of your life and romantic sector. Once you’ve learned to listen and not talk, you have found out a tremendous amount of information. This has been gathered for your benefit. Now, you can move forward with style.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—This positive change in your work environment will improve your social sector, as well as romantic opportunities for all of you “single Leos.” Attached Leos find the increase in pay allows you and your certain someone to splurge a little and make this Valentine’s Day an extra-special one. Maybe a weekend away would be just what the doctor ordered. Try somewhere unfamiliar; this will bring you closer together.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—You are going to be in a place where the past will be unexpectedly in your face this week. However, you are so cool, calm and collected that you will never show how startled you are by this encounter. The other one will not be able to hold himself/herself together, though. For some reason, this puts you in a very powerful emotional place—a place you deserve to be—confident, strong and desirable.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—If you don’t set some boundaries soon with an unruly friend or family member, you’re going to end up paying the price sooner than you have expected to emotionally. This out-of-control aspect can not be allowed to affect your loved ones around you. Most of all, it cannot affect you and your health. Set time aside to get away. This is extremely important now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You are in a good place to see your long-term goals begin to manifest. No longer will you chase after foolish or selfish individuals who are not on the same page as you. You find romance unexpectedly this month. You’re ready to move forward without looking back. You have all the tools you need to make a successful relationship last. Try not to second-guess your intuition.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Whatever your heart’s desire, you will find it in your own back yard this month. Personal relationships flourish. You feel blessed with friends and family members around you. A new job opportunity awaits those who are looking to improve the quality of their lives. Travel is on the agenda as well. Plans for which you have long waited can finally be made. When you return, you are ready to set the world on fire.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Health and fitness should become a priority this month. You are able to make significant changes in you physical appearance as well as your long-term health goals. As a result, others begin to notice the “new you.” This will encourage you to move forward and stay consistent. Work begins to increase for the better this week.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—You may have in mind a new location for a home or work environment. As the month begins to move along, opportunities are presented to make this dream come true—the perfect fit for you and your emotional space. Midweek brings in old friends and family to catch up. This provides a tremendous amount of insight for you to utilize to its best good.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You might need to clear up an old debt or an old emotional issue this week. Once this is settled, you can move on knowing this is behind you. Travel plans may be in the works. If you’re able to get away anytime soon, this will more than likely improve your romantic sector as well. A concern about the health of a female friend will be resolved for the better this week.
