Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 23-29, 2009
This Week: Resolving what may have appeared to be irreconcilable differences seems to be much easier when Mercury goes direct Sept. 29. The puzzle pieces fall magically into place as the past appears to heal the present. This is a great time to take a look at your long-term goals, dreams and ambitions. The brass ring is not too far out of reach at this time.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Romance is much more evident to you now that you have a clear head about you. There is an exceptional interest now in a creative ability that you have developed over time. The powers that be are informing those around you to take note of your qualities. Financial benefits increase the quality of your surroundings, allowing you to splurge on something that you’ve been wishing for, Aries.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)-—Out of fear or insecurity, another could try to maneuver into your space now. I try not to make a habit out of feeding another’s paranoia, However, in this case, I would like you to take note of the motives of those around you earlier on this week. If there is a I’ll-scratch-your-back-if-you-scratch-mine scenario in the works, expect to lose all of your fingernails in exchange for nothing by week’s end. It would be best to focus your energy on yourself and your loved ones at this time. This is the best energy spent, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Romance rebounds in a very productive light at this time. Conversations get to the heart of the matter, and both sides of the story are revealed, allowing you to move forward with an element of dignity. With family influencing this aspect, it’s been difficult to see every angle with clarity. Moving on away from those who have a negative influence may be difficult, but in the long run, you will experience a peaceful quality of life. Finances are gigantic this week; who says money doesn’t grow on trees?
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—A long-standing business problem will come to an end shortly. An unexpected source works “magic” behind the scenes on your behalf. Expect a meeting with the “powers that be” to run as smooth as silk. Take some time off to enjoy nature and some fresh air. You will return to your daily grind with a fresh perspective that will become contagious to those around you, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B this week. You don’t need any unexpected problems early on. Romance becomes more intense and magical as the week wears on. You can finally trust your own decisions about your laws of attraction. Self-sabotage has been a repeat offender in your life over the past few years. You’re done with it now, Leo.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Slowly but surely, your home environment or personal appearance is beginning to take shape and form now. Rome was not built in a day; the stress you have put on yourself over perfection has been detrimental to your health and relationships. Take a few steps back now and count your blessings; as soon as you’re able to do that, everything else will fall into place, Virgo.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Pay very close attention to those around you, especially their health or symptoms this week. Your intuition may be able to pinpoint something early on that another may not be able to see. If you offer up advice in a non-threatening or fearful way, it will be received with clarity. You may be treating yourself to an unexpected gift this week, or another may be surprising you with something you have longed for. Be receptive and show gratitude, Libra, there will be more to follow.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You may need to level with another about a personal issue at this time. Although it may appear that you cannot find your way through this dilemma, there is a way, and others are willing to help. First, you want to be in a position to help yourself; an unexpected offer arrives this week to clear up old debt or financial frustrations. Move on quickly through your goals to achieve your own personal success. Romance is another unexpected surprise this week, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Romance may have your head swimming early on this week. You’re finally in a position where others are not negatively affecting your relationship sector of your life. Setting a boundary was not a mistake; connections made now will last a lifetime. A loved one shows unexpected generosity toward you at this time. This can be a very emotional element for you. Work and finance go hand in hand to make what appeared to be an unobtainable goal manifest at the 11th hour. Trust the universe now, Sag.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Unusual people, places and things arrive this week to help you move in the direction of your new path. Pay very close attention to the signs around you at this time. There is no such thing as synchronicity; everything arrives at its perfect place, time and order. You will become very energetic midweek; the past emotional stress that has been bogging you down is lifting once and for all. Financial plans create positive new beginnings. A new business venture takes off now, Capricorn.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Conflict between co-workers or office help could be getting on your last nerve at this time. As much as you would like to become the “peace keeper” and fix everything around you, forget it! Tell them to get out of your way and avoid this nonsense like the plague. You have bigger fish to fry this week, projects to complete and long-term goals to access. Your head does not have any room for those wanting to cloud your judgment. Make plans to visit loved ones or friends on the weekend; you won’t be disappointed.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You’re able to make peace with a past friend or loved one this week. Then you need to let it sit from there. To expect this to resume is where the danger lies. You have both outgrown each other, and too much water has passed under the bridge for this to pop back into place. However, it is better to resolve it and move on than to let it fester within. You may be called upon to defend the welfare of an animal or child this week. Do not look the other way; the universe put this in your path for a reason, Pisces!
