Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 3-9, 2010
This Week: This week provides the opportunity to “clear the air.” Proceed with caution. Kind, loving words and actions will move mountains. Any form of aggression will only backfire in the long run. Energy levels have not been running at full capacity for many of you this past lunar cycle. Expect this element to change for the better.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Don’t involve a child or pet in the mix of your emotional situation. Protect them from this off-course vibration to the best of your ability. Do not underestimate the behavior of another. Things are not what they seem. Short fuses and irrational actions may escalate into a physical altercation. Keep your cool, and avoid aggressive aspects this week.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Opportunities arrive from some far-out sources this week. The past is affecting the present in a positive way. Look into expanding your personal achievements. Those around you are willing to help you obtain your goals. You’re able to take your finances to the next level. Another is willing to help you look at your long-term investments.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Once again, you are allowing an outside influence to affect your happy home. This is not a good practice to “get into,” and it has never worked for you in the past. Put those within your four walls first and foremost on your priority list of kindness and comfort. If not, you may find yourself on the outside looking in.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—The past is definitely getting on your last nerve this week. All of the information you are receiving now is beneficial, even though it may feel like a setback. For you to heal those old, deep-seated wounds, you must look at this in its proper perspective. This will move on. Stand your ground and set some boundaries. Everyone can benefit from this situation.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Another is willing and able to step up to the plate now emotionally. You will not have to look for signals to dissect thoughts and actions. Everything is perfectly clear. You’re about to receive positive news with a work aspect as well. All in all, this is a monumental week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Connections you’re making now will end up benefiting you in the months to come. Synchronicity is working in perfect order for you. Pay close attention to those being drawn into your inner circle. These are positive individuals with the ability to help you grow. Changes in your physical appearance put a spring in your step.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Take baby steps this week regarding your long-term goals. You have been pushing so much to the limit lately that you could be creating some devastating effects to your own emotional well-being. Romance is a major priority at this time. Relax and enjoy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—This month offers new opportunities with your long-term career goals. Be patient, and keep your eyes open. The early bird gets the worm. Try not to let your insecurities get the best of you now. You have a tremendous amount to offer.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Time to push forward and defend your position. This can be done in a simple, sweeping blow. You’re getting too caught up in the actions of another. It’s time to take care of yourself. A weekend away “alone” may be just the trick to create a fresh perspective on your lifestyle. Finances are definitely on the upswing.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Positive information comes regarding the welfare of another’s health this week. This takes a tremendous amount of strain off you now. This enables you to concentrate on your long-term goals. An offer of work comes out of the blue this month. Take quick action to ensure your place in this spot.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—It is time you play “catch up” with friends and family members, especially on an emotional level. You can feel the tension in the air that may be arriving from an earth-sign female early on this week. Fly under the radar, and “get the job done.” Nobody does it better than you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Romantic elements take a turn for the better. However, it could be in a way you least expect. An unconventional individual arrives on the scene to help you see things without the “rose-colored glasses” you have been wearing lately. You will thank him/her at the end of the day.
