Your Horoscope: Week of March 31-April 6, 2010
This Week: Finances are a major concern for most of you at this time, especially in the area we live and the “uncertain terms” of our future. But hear this loud and clear: we will overcome these obstacles. We are on the upswing of a positive choice provided by our own thought process. If you continue to feed into the fear and negativity the world is so willing to provide for you, you have bought your own personal, one-way ticket on the Titanic. It’s your choice. Thoughts become actions, my friends.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—If you have found yourself in a jam financially, this may be a good time to re-evaluate your spending habits and overindulgent behavior. It’s time to put the brakes on before it’s too late. Your business may have been affected by your lack of focus. It’s not too late to turn this around in your favor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—You may find yourself past the point of annoyed regarding the way another may be taking caring of himself/herself, a pet or child. It may be more wise to work behind the scenes to get things under control rather than to flat-out blast this person. Midweek finds you in a delightful dilemma—you cannot pick the wrong path.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—You’re preparing yourself for a major change in your home environment. Emotions have run far too high for too long to overlook this element any further. Once you make up your mind, you will feel a freedom you have not experienced for many years. Your personal power is back in place this summer. You will not misplace it again.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Do not allow an insecure female to disrupt your happy home. This has gone too far now, and it’s time to call in a favor. Ask an older, wiser female to dismantle this bomb. She will have the power and ability to know where the fuse is. At week’s end, you’re putting together a fabulous financial deal.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Make absolutely sure you have let all of your loved ones know exactly how much they mean to you. You have gone through some major changes this past month, and it has been quite stressful on you. You may not have always “minded your tongue” when you have barked out your concerns. This is still weighing heavily on your loved one’s mind. Clear the air with love and appreciation.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—The perfect fit and the perfect timing arrive at the 11th hour this week. You are about to move forward in an entirely different direction with career and your personal life. Trust that the universe has a bigger plan for you. Even though you may not have complete control over it today, you will master this skill in time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Romance is your best chance at feeling in tip-top shape. Even though you have felt like you’re a tiny ship tossed about at sea with your emotions, you have the ability to receive love. Career will fall into place after the first of May. Take a leap of faith, and manifest your biggest hopes, dreams and ambitions. You will not fall.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You are slipping back into your old self-destructive ways. It is time to make self-preservation a prominent factor in your life. Your personal relationships can suffer as a result of your self-indulgent behavior. With that said, think about how your actions affect others, and move forward from there in the most positive light. You can’t go wrong with that.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Take care of your physical appearance as well as your emotional self now. You may be struggling with a “funk mentality,” and could be having a difficult time with your personal presentation. Fake it until you make it. By week’s end, you will feel as though you are back in your own skin again.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Romance may feel a bit shaky early on this week, because of the result of a negative outside influence. Do not feed into the jealous behavior of another; instead, focus on your own positive aspects. By week’s end, romance is back on track. Finances are definitely improving as the month of June arrives. Set some money aside for a rainy day.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Avoid becoming too possessive or obsessive this week. Your insecurities need not be fed. Understand what you do and do not have control over, and take it from there. Focus this nervous energy into something productive. By week’s end, you will feel more at ease.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Good news regarding your financial sector arrives after the 29th of April. You are in a rebuilding stage in life, and soon you will see you have a solid foundation to work with. Midweek, friends and family gather to spend quality time with you. Humor is contagious.
