Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 23-29, 2009
This Week: Merry Christmas and a happy New Year! The “blue” full moon Dec. 31 is an enlightening time. Energy and spirits begin to lift, and restrictions diminish. There has been an outpouring of argumentative behavior among loved ones and friends because of restrictive planetary influences. Now is a good time to dust yourself off and let go of negative comments and attitudes. Hanging on to these aspects will only hurt your long-term connections.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—You have done a good job removing negative elements from your personal life the past few months. Now, you may find some of these situations trying to re-establish themselves within your circle. Pay no attention to this, and do not react. This is a temporary test that will move away from you quickly. Hold your head high, and accept a gracious compliment or reward for a job well done through the workplace. Midweek brings a surprising positive aspect.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—You have made your point, now you need to allow another to absorb what you have presented. This takes time, so let it be for now. Once this is set in motion, it will turn out in your favor. Taking a crowbar to this will not benefit you. A woman from your past has interesting news for you. Set time aside to make that connection this week. You will be pleasantly surprised.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Your dreams, hopes and ambitions will manifest during this month. There may be some frustrating moments that arrive prior to this aspect. Keep your cool and don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. All eyes are on you this week, so put your best foot forward. You will stumble across a diamond in the rough during this time. The weekend calls for a celebration.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Romance begins to establish itself within your personal relationship sector. Keep your eyes and ears open for what is not said, and read between the lines. Actions speak way louder than words. You will find your heart’s desire within your own back yard. You will need to clear the air about your past behavior shortly. No matter how you slice it, this needs to be resolved.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—The fit that you have stumbled into does appear to be working for now. You are still in a learning process, and any “free schooling” you can get will only benefit you in the long run with your long-term goals. Sit back and let this happen. Avoid focusing on the daily frustrations in life. Friends and loved ones are ready to party. Enjoy time spent with others at week’s end.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Out with the old and bring in the new. Doors open to align new friendships and business relations. You are done wasting time and energy with stale connections. Your calender becomes very full this month. You will be mixing business and pleasure in an unexpected way. When news arrives regarding a past romantic element, let it go for good.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Your week starts off with a bang, and it may be difficult to keep up with phone messages and communication. Try not to allow this to frustrate you too much. You’re in high demand. You will need to schedule your time and energy wisely. As the week progresses, you will find time for your own personal needs to be met. Take time for a little self-indulgent behavior. A haircut or massage will do the trick.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Have you been avoiding someone because you’re afraid he or she may be able to see through you? It’s possible he or she could have the answer for the emotional dilemma you’ve been struggling with. This really is not an aspect you need to tiptoe around. In fact, if you really push into this space, you can resolve this once and for all. This is a really good time to address any health concerns you may be having. A simple solution to a problem is on the way.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—It was probably a good idea to take a break from your usual connections for a while. This allowed you the time and energy to work on yourself and your surroundings. Too much negativity has been trying to work its way into your inner circle. This week, you can look at your accomplishments with pride. New business connections are on the way. Your personal life kicks up a notch in your favor.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—A side job or hobby could become very financially lucrative during this month of unexpected offers and events. This puts a spring in your step, and you can see the positive effects this activity provides. You’re able to balance work and home in a positive, productive manner. Loved ones can see a significant change for the better.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Changes or expansion with career aspects are on the table. Take advantage of new possibilities that cross your path. Don’t overlook a diamond in the rough this week. This situation has presented itself to you for a good reason, and you can feel your energy levels shifting for the better. By Friday, you’re crossing the finish line with everything accomplished.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Don’t beat yourself up too much about what you have not accomplished. Instead, try to look at the activities you have completed. You have made an enormous impact on friends and family members this past week. This will become more apparent over the weekend. You can bask in the sunlight of your own heart and mind.
