Your Horoscope Week of Aug. 26- Sept. 1, 2009
This Week: The past new moon opened doors for gentle, creative energies to emerge. Conception of life of all forms is very prominent. Renewed passion and strength highlights relationship sectors. Communication is almost telepathic, and words almost appear unnecessary. Many are feeling the thin veil between life and death early this year. Try not to fear things you do not understand—learn from them instead.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Try not to be sensitive to a reaction from another this week. This is his or her “junk” to deal with, not yours. Listen closely to what he or she is “not saying,” and go from there. Midweek, you’re acknowledged for a job well done by the powers that be. There is public acclaim and notoriety developing in your favor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—All is said and done! Now, it’s time to move forward into your new, enlightened path. If you continue to “stay in the past,” you will never be able to see the blessings that have been laid before you. Romance has been a bumpy ride; however, as you emerge from this cocoon, you will find a beautiful butterfly within. Everyone else can see this transformation, and it’s time for you to observe this as well.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—A sibling or a nosy neighbor could be in a position to push your buttons this week. Close off all outside negative influences. Just because he or she is miserable doesn’t mean you need to be miserable, too. Protect your loved ones from these same individuals. They may become a target if you’re not willing to comply to their demands.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Positive reinforcement arrives at the 11th hour this week. You have been feeling like you have been hanging on by a thread, but now this has become a strong silver cord connecting you to those who will help you see the light. Your financial picture is becoming stronger, career is back on track, and you’re recognized for your unique sense of style.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Even though you feel like you’re in limbo, your long-term path is being carved for you. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps! You have so much to offer those around you! Your humor and quick wit captivate everyone within your realm. You can sell the Golden Gate bridge, and the mayor of San Francisco will give you a special permit to do so. Believe in yourself!
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—This may be a great time to have a checkup from the neck up. If you’re even remotely questioning your actions, now is the time to try to make things right. Do not try to “fly under the radar.” If you do, your actions will come back to haunt you in a big way. You may also be in a position to call another on the carpet for his or her behavior. Be brave, and deliver your message with love. There is no room for a grudge.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—If you even attempt to keep a secret from friends or family, you may live to regret it. The truth will set you free. Information shared with you in confidence regarding another’s health or welfare needs to be shared with all of those involved in this aspect. Do not fear the consequences of your actions, fear the repercussions of your silence.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Positive lighthearted energy arrives out of the blue, giving you the confidence you need to move forward with your personal life. You are wide awake, and you’re able to see that after all of your past heartaches and apprehension, you were meant to be where you are right now. A stronger commitment will be on your agenda. Those around you can see how you have affected their lives in a productive way.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Finances continue to improve during this time. Although you know you need a break, trust that the universe will provide you with one shortly. The past may attempt to sneak up on you this week in a peculiar way. Try to evaluate why this may be a lesson you need to revisit. Is forgiveness in question with you or an outside source? One way or another, this will get resolved. Try to make the best of the lesson presented.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Although this may seem like “one step forward, two steps back,” this really is not the case. You’re just re-evaluating your options and gaining the courage you need to take a leap of faith. A long-distance phone call midweek provides you with some information that will give you the courage you need to move forward. Trust you and yours will be protected from any outside harm. From there, it’s easy street.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Dealing with the elderly or those who may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer is a test of your God-given patience this week. Try to see the simplicity involved in this “lesson of love.” Maybe you needed this wake-up call after all, to recreate your own “child-like image.” The lighter side of life is not always the wrong way to go.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You may not receive the best news regarding a legal matter this week, but in the long run, this may be protecting you from long-term damage. Retrace your steps, and try to figure out an alternative solution to your short-term problems. Sometimes, the only way around a dilemma is through it.
