Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 9-15, 2009
This Week: All through the month of December, romantic aspects are the focus of this interesting time frame. Some of you may feel as though the bottom has fallen out of your romantic relations. This is just an adjustment period where growth and development can occur. Try not to use a “hard sell” approach to intimacy. Pushing at another individual will only push him or her away. Keep quiet and mindful of your personal responsibilities. Get things done, and then come up for air.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—This will prove to be a very lucky time frame, especially with financial aspects. An unexpected windfall will occur. Your hard work and efforts, as well as your talent, are noticed by others. The media may take a shine to you. A phone call from a friend or lover from the past will prove to be very enlightening.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—A large group or organization will bring business opportunities to the forefront at this time. Accept invitations to mix business and pleasure now. Romantic aspects begin to take a turn for the better. Leave the past in the past.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Everything begins to slow down to a snail’s pace for a while midweek. Try not to panic; this is giving you the opportunity to rest and recover a bit from a health issue or an over-booked schedule. Romance opportunities are becoming a focus. Single Geminis are in a position to make new acquaintances. Attached Geminis fall into a second honeymoon stage with their significant other.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—A friend or romantic interest may call you on the carpet about your behavior. Count to 10 before you lash out, and try to take a good look at what he or she is trying to say. Maybe they are worried about your health and welfare. Don’t dismiss them until you’ve had the chance to digest their intentions. They may be trying to help you out. Your fuse can get quite short at times. Try to lengthen it a bit this week.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Your worries about your personal life will become unfounded shortly. The past has greatly affected the way you see your future unfolding. Innocent until proven guilty should become your motto. Trust and be trustworthy, and all will fall into place. Take a day off to get all of your annoying responsibilities out of the way. Once you feel caught up, it’s easier to stay that way.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Slow down a bit here. Although you should be patted on the back for your efforts and your work ethics, try not to overdo this week. Muscle pains or emotional discomfort may be something you will be working through. The body and mind will heal simultaneously. They connect on very powerful levels. Take time out to get together with a friend for a meal. Relax and enjoy some down time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You will be watching the motives of another very closely. Someone is preparing to fall short of his or her responsibilities and allow you to pick up the slack. You will need to set a boundary with this person immediately; otherwise, the inmates will take over the prison. Put an end to ugly gossip that is flying around the neighborhood or workplace. You will be held in high regard if you do.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Busy schedules have not permitted you to connect with friends or family as you would wish to, until now. It almost appears as though you may feel a bit estranged from loved ones this week. Try not to take the behaviors of others personally. As information is revealed, you will find that those around you have been overwhelmed with emotional issues. Perhaps they were trying not to burden you with these aspects.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Romance and finance are the “main course” this week, providing you with plenty of wells to draw from. You’re making some physical changes that will affect your emotional status in a positive light. Now would be a good time to leave some “bad habits” behind for good. Not only will this improve your health and outlook, this will also fatten up your wallet.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Once you make the decision to change residence or a career path, stick to it! Change is not an easy element to deal with. The unknown always kicks up some fear and reservations. But you need to break free of the stagnation that’s been “bringing you down.” Even your loved ones will encourage you to take a leap of faith. Go for it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Health issues may be challenging you or a loved one. This is only a temporary vibration that needs to be addressed in a positive light. The diagnosis could be darker and uglier than the problem itself. Time and energy spent toward this will prove to be the best efforts yet this week. Changes will be apparent almost immediately.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You need to put your fiery foot down hard now within your home life. The pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey game is up. Everyone is passing the buck with his or her responsibilities, and you’re stuck trying to do it all. Then, when you fall short, the finger is pointing at you. Delegate your authority, and stick to your guns. If you need to kick someone to the curb to accomplish this, so be it. Peace at any price.
