Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 24-March 2, 2010
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Feb. 24-Mar. 2
This Week: The full moon Feb. 28 in Virgo is meant to strengthen our character and promote higher energy levels. This will continue to be evident throughout the coming week. Many of you may have found yourselves feeling lethargic or extremely sensitive lately. This full moon will blow that out of the water, and you will begin to feel like yourself again. Active financial aspects are promising, and physical contact is prominent.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Take stock in what you have, and count your blessings. Looking at loss will do you no good. An upgrade in your career sector is evident. Take advantage of this opportunity, and let the powers that be know you are up for the challenge. You will find a great amount of satisfaction with this new endeavour.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—You may have noticed a certain someone giving you more than normal attention. Not knowing exactly what to do with it, or how to read it, you’re sending the wrong message back. Be open to this exchange of energy. You will be embraced by social activity as a result of this encounter. This is a positive connection.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—You may feel as though you need to get in for an appointment with your favorite psychologist or healer this week. It appears as though everyone around you has gone stark raving mad. Retreat into your own realm, and take some time to yourself. Physical activity will remove the stress you have recently dealt with. Others give you the space you need. A love from your past returns.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—With the full moon in Virgo this week, your energy levels are beginning to lift, and emotions are shifting for the better. You have had some losses and challenges, and your heart has been heavy. Expect a change for the better. Romance is blessed with passionate aspects this week. Take advantage of this emotional windfall.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—The arrival of a new family member or pet takes on a new meaning for you. Emotionally, you are on a natural high. No one can take this energy away from you now. Legal aspects need to be cleaned up and dealt with aggressively. Do not allow another to bully you. You have too much going for you now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—The full moon Feb. 28 in your sign has the ability to bring hidden influences to light. You may be curious as to why you have not heard from a certain individual as of late. Try not to assume it has anything to do with you. He or she may be overwhelmed with personal issues that you are not aware of. When emotionally prepared, he or she will surface as though nothing has happened. Leave it alone and move forward. A work aspect is about to change for the better. Expect the best.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You’re beginning to feel like yourself again. Take an opportunity to make connections with friends and family. A new arrival will bring your heart so much joy. Exchange energy with pure individuals. A boys’/girls’ night out may be needed soon. This will help you blow off some steam.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Feeling spread a little thin appears to be an emotional issue. You’re hanging on the edge, and it isn’t a comfortable place to be. Expect a situation to work out as the universe intended. Sometimes it doesn’t always go the way we envision it. A romantic situation takes on a new form.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You may need to offer some emotional or financial support to another this week. Either way, you end up on top as a result of this action. You’re hearing from a love from your past. This helps to tie up loose ends for the future. Your focus on love may have you questioning the motives of this individual. Let it be for now. Focus on your long-term goals instead.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—The disorganization in the past week has gotten on your last nerve. Now, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it is not a train. Try to get out and about over the next weekend. Enjoy the company of those whom you have not had time for recently. This will do you a world of good in the long haul. An unexpected windfall arrives this week. At the 11th hour, you’re back on track.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Try not to take the behavior of another too personally. Your “bull in the china shop” energy is not what another needs. Allow him or her some space to work out a personal issue. By next week, you will see a change in his or her emotional state. A breakthrough with career is evident. Grab the brass ring.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You have felt sensitive and insecure recently. Your intuition has played a major part in this situation. You may be worried about another’s health or emotional state. You will see a major change in this aspect shortly. A friend from your past will surface. You will be delighted with the information you receive.
