Your Horoscope: Week of March 17-23, 2010
This Week: The spring equinox encourages fresh starts and new beginnings. Clean up and clear out old, useless clutter that has no meaning to you now, physically and emotionally. The full moon March 29 arrives in Libra. Pluto’s influence could cause a bit of global disturbance or physical dramatics to the Earth again. Concentrate now on peace and safety. Avoid getting caught up in negative conversations. As a collective consciousness, we can change the elements of this planet for the greater good.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—This constant battle between friends or family members is getting on your last nerve. You may have to excuse yourself from the “drama” and find a comfortable spot to hide midweek. As you go within, you will be able to tap into your inner voice and heal your own wounds. Once this is accomplished, you are able to hang on to your own sanity. Walk wide of those who continue to stay in the mud.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—A concern about a loss may have you feeling a bit lost or distracted early this week. Concentrate on mundane tasks, and push yourself through this anxiety. Midweek this begins to lift, and unexpected news from the past reveals a bright spot for you to focus on. An Aries, Leo or Sagittarius female has a connection for mixing business with pleasure. Be open for new opportunities.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Remember, Dorothy learned that if you ever go looking for your own heart’s desire, don’t look any farther than your own back yard. In other words, the power and the resources you need to calm your internal storm lie within you. It’s just a matter of taking a leap of faith and trusting that the universe will not let you down. You can point fingers all day long at those around you, but at the end of the day, you’re responsible for your own happiness. Take charge of it—you deserve the best.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—This hectic schedule you’ve been dealing with will begin to pay off big time. The universe is working with you to improve your finances and resources. All eyes are on you this week as you roll up your sleeves and get the job done. You receive praise and support from the strangest places now. Accept this vote of confidence graciously.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—If you have been holding your own personal “pity party,” it’s time to knock it off and get back to work. If not, set a better boundary with those who have been stealing your precious energy and taking advantage of your healing nature. It may not be evident to you just how much of a drain this has become until it’s too late. Surround yourself with those who are making a difference in this world, and don’t hold back. Your contributions to a larger cause will be evident.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—If you have been grieving or feeling a tremendous amount of heaviness, try not to concern yourself with this element too much. This will begin to shift during the month of April, and you will find yourself removing old wounds from your system once and for all. An opportunity for employment or a business idea will arrive this month. This will help with this internal shift.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—An unconventional sport or hobby is supposed to create relief for you, not more anxiety. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to be the “best,” and try living in the moment. It is these little “moments” that help us grow emotionally, mentally and physically. Be conscious of what you bring voice to. The louder you emphasize what you don’t want, the quicker it will come to you. Bring positive thought to each word you speak.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—A final agreement with a long-standing problem will finally fall into place this week. Now, you can concentrate on bigger and better things that are coming into view. Expansion and growth with business is arriving this month, and you need to be prepared for it. This is a time to celebrate. Try not to worry too much about how you will manage this aspect. Everything will fall magically into place.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You have gone within and located your soul in the past few weeks. Now, it’s time to bring your findings to the attention of those around you who matter. What you have learned can be deeply beneficial to friends and loved ones. Gently encourage those around you to stretch their imaginary limitations. Your presentation will be received with gratitude.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—The universe has provided you with some “down time” to get those nagging mundane tasks in order. Try not to fret about work or money this week. You will be slammed with an overload of responsibilities during the month of May. Finances will be a major focus this month as well. You are able to catch up and set some money aside for a rainy day. Don’t let extra money burn an unnecessary hole in your pocket.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—You will find yourself overwhelmed with pride as a loved one accomplishes a long-term goal. Express this with a deep sense of love and commitment to them. Your words are so powerful now, you could move mountains with them. Don’t hold back. Allow spirit to speak through you. You can change the course of another’s life with your emotional support. As a result of this, your own personal power begins to grow.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Large gatherings provide good business opportunities this week. Even if you feel as though you want to “hide out” from social activities, this is not the time to become a couch potato. This energy shift is a powerful one. Take advantage of new surroundings and connections. You won’t regret it.
