Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 9-15, 2009
This Week: As Mercury retrograde launches into full swing, we can again expect the unexpected with travel and communications. Be cautious with travel, back up your computer, check and double-check messages. Past love relationships will resurface. Try not to make too much out of these encounters. Having dog trouble? Dave’s Doggie Den has the answers! An annual Open House will be Sept. 19, with demonstrations at 10 a.m. and noon at Dave’s Doggie Den, 107 St. Louis St., Rockford. Be there or be square!
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—There is plenty of time to get out and enjoy yourself this weekend. Get your mundane tasks out of the way early on this week, then there will be no excuse not to socialize come week’s end. Long-distance communication reveals some interesting information. You will also learn an elderly relative has not been “taken to the cleaners” as you may think. The sly, old fox is wise enough to see a gold digger with crystal clarity.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—Financial aspects are looking up. Legal entanglements are coming to a close, and opportunities to improve the quality of your life are arriving. A dark-haired female has some positive connections. Follow up on leads that are presented to you. These aspects will begin to take shape and form September-October. Romance is on hold this week.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—The bigger picture looks a little hazy, but trust me, the universe does have a bigger plan for you. If you pass up those who have not put their fair share of effort into life, don’t feel guilty about it. Everyone is allowed the same opportunities for growth and positive accomplishments. Take a leap of faith now, and those around you will support every move you make.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—An interesting event will create quite a stir, and you want to be neck-deep in this adventure. Connections you are about to make will once again put you on the map and at the top of your chosen profession. Meetings and promotional events put you at the right place at the right time. Take time out this weekend to entertain friends and family. You’re going to be way too busy to catch up later in the month.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—A final ending to a long-standing problem will arrive shortly. That way, you can move on to bigger and better things. A loved one may need a little help financially or emotionally. This will help them grow and develop a better place for themselves in the long run. Investing time, energy or finances into this individual will pay off large in the long run. Expect the unexpected this weekend.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Try not to overanalyze an emotional encounter that occurred in the past week or so. Let it go, and you will see improvements with this individual shortly. If you take a crowbar to try to get to the bottom of this, it may end up backfiring in your face. Your heart and intentions are pure. Go easy into this, and all will turn out well.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Unexpected news from a long-distance source will leave you feeling a bit on edge early this week. Let this sit until you have all of the information available to you. Then, you will know exactly how to handle this delicate information. Not everything is on the table quite yet. Mid-September will allow a conclusion to this aspect. Take time out for friends and family this week. Humor is the best medicine.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—A friend or family member may be in some emotional trouble that you have not been able to see. Ask if there is anything you can do to help. Cleaning, painting or even just taking the garbage out may be all they need to feel they are not alone. You may also need to delicately inquire about their health and welfare. Investing some time and energy into this individual will, in the end, help you learn more about yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—It’s time to clean house; company is coming. Get all of your annoying chores and details out of the way so you can prepare for a giant surge of business and pleasure. September and October are going to be very busy months for you, and you may not feel as though you can come up for air. You will remove old debt and concerns with your bare hands during this time. Make sure you’re taking time out to take care of yourself. Connections with the media are highlighted.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—You are preparing for a major shift that will begin to occur during October. Your home and business aspects are highlighted. If you can see it in your mind’s eye, you can achieve it here on earth. Do not allow another with a negative, fearful attitude to stand in your way of success. Romance is a focus as well. A second honeymoon-type energy is arriving shortly.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Taking time out to connect with loved ones from the past will prove to be very valuable to you now. Information you receive will help you to heal an old wound, once and for all. Step it up a notch this week, and see what happens with your home and business life. Energy you spend at this time will benefit you in the long run. You will see major improvements arriving mid-September—emotionally, financially and physically.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You must set a boundary with another who continues to boss you around and take advantage of you. You’re trying too hard to do too many things. This will take a toll on your physical body, if you do not put a stop to it now. A demanding female family member needs to be put in her place. Delegate your authority out to another who is not so emotionally invested in this scenario. You will see positive results immediately.
