Your Horoscope: Week of March 24-30, 2010
By Denise Guzzardo
This Week: The full moon in Libra focuses on partnerships and provides the ability to navigate through difficult waters. It is also a time when we can be truly honest with ourselves as to what really works in our lives and what does not. We all make choices when it comes to affairs of the heart. In some cases, it may be best to pick your battles carefully. In other words, is it really that big a deal that the trash didn’t go out when the same person was willing to stay up with you all night with a fever? Recognize the blessings with love on this full moon.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Your schedule may have you overworked and feeling under-paid as the week starts off. Pay it no mind because you are about to receive a huge recognition for a job well done by week’s end. Your personal life may be suffering a bit as well (or, in some cases, “lack” of personal life). This beautiful full moon favors your romantic sector and provides you with plenty of opportunities to explore. Get out and socialize.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Give it a rest already. Constant poking and prodding another for an answer may end up giving you way more than you really were ready to hear. Allow these aspects to resolve themselves, and they will in your favor. You’re thinking about the past and how much someone had hurt you. Try to look into the present and see how many loved ones and newfound friends have arrived during the past year. You’re truly blessed.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—It has been a very difficult time with personal matters in the past. Now, the only thing you can do is to reap the benefits and opportunities of the present. This “down time” has allowed you to heal and see the other side of the story. Take the knowledge you have learned and use it for your best good in the months to come. You have so much more to offer others as a result of it. Be kind and patient with your loved ones this week. They need emotional support at this time.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—It would be a great time to express your feelings toward your friends and loved ones. Someone may feel a bit out of sorts or emotionally vulnerable. Make sure they know you “have their back” when it comes to an aggressive individual. At the same time, you may need to defend a personal relationship with a nosy individual. You don’t owe anyone an explanation now. Less is more.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—This is the perfect time to clear away clutter and make room for new items that will improve the quality of your life. You have not really gone on a spending spree in a while. You need not max out your credit cards doing this, but a little piece of luxury goes a long way emotionally. You may also be considering a new look. Spruce up your wardrobe, and ask your favorite hairdresser what he or she has in mind for you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Romance—past, present and future—is on your mind this week. You’re thinking about many situations and how you have come to this point in your life. You may be feeling a little differently about love now, looking at it without the rose-colored glasses. However, you may be surprised as to how you have learned so much from it. As you see these encounters as blessings, you will find yourself with options and choices in the near future.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Letting go of a past matter may require a bit of work or attention to it this week. The ability to recognize how it is affecting the present is very helpful in the weeks to come. You have learned your lesson, and now you can file it away for the future. The knowledge is the biggest blessing that arrived from this encounter. You’re in a different world now as a result. A home project will bring you much joy in the weeks to come.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Bite your tongue, and allow a loved one to make his or her own decisions about a personal matter. Only offer advice when it is asked for, and you will find he or she has the ability to figure this one out on his or her own. You will be on pins and needles until then, so try to focus on your own “pet projects” to remove the stress of this issue. You have your own responsibilities to deal with now. Make a list, and check them off one by one.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—It is as though you have had a major epiphany over an old emotional habit or wound this week. Now, you are able to see what led you to these significant changes over the last two years. Although some of these situations seemed so right at the time, now they make no sense to you at all. With that said, you can breathe a sigh of relief and move into your next adventure. There are plenty to choose from in the weeks to come. Finances are dynamic this week.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Financial aspects are improving by the minute, and April is the month you can take a little time to yourself to relax a bit. A vacation is long overdue. Set the time aside now to make your reservations, and turn this into a reality. A friend or loved one is also in dire need of this energy. When you return, you will be in the perfect emotional state to achieve your long-term goals.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—This is an extremely productive time for you now. You are mixing business and pleasure with perfect balance. Accept opportunities for advancement. It is time to take a break as well. Get out of town with your favorite special someone and enjoy some time off. When you return, there will be an exciting, somewhat hectic schedule for you to sink your teeth into. Rest up…this is going to be a very active month.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Make sure you get both sides of the story before you confront an individual this week. There may be more information on the way, and it may be best to sit tight and gather your resources first. Listen to what isn’t being said instead of the chatter that is coming at you. Read between the lines. Someone is trying to sell themselves or their ideas too hard.
