Your Horoscope: Week of April 7-13, 2010
By Denise Guzzardo
This Week: Now that the sun is full blown into Aries, we become more creative with our thoughts as well as our long-term goals. No mountain is too high to bring our ambitions to fruition. For the most part, this week will consist of a brighter energy level. Tuesday may demonstrate a “bit of a setback.” Accidents or emotional outbursts could become a problem. This would be a great day to lie low and go within. Enjoy the rest of this week’s positive influence. We are finally beginning to see the light of day.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—It appears as though you may have bent the rules a bit in the recent past, and now this is catching up to you. Try not to push a conflict over this matter, or you may be biting off more than you can chew. Clear away any old outstanding debt, and expect to be rewarded from the universe as a result.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—A sudden windfall is about to occur, putting you in the driver’s seat emotionally and financially. You’re able to see exactly how this will affect those around you, as well as yourself. A humanitarian organization needs your assistance. Donate your time and energy to this passionate cause.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Positive news arrives regarding the health of a loved one. You can breathe a sigh of relief with this situation shortly. At last, you have time to catch up with those friends and family members who have been on the back burner for a while. This will definitely bring in a fresh perspective to a recent stagnant energy. You’re beginning to feel more like yourself again.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—You’ve pushed yourself to the limit, and you need to rest. Allowing others to “get involved” in your personal affairs has not helped your intimate relationship much. You may not be aware of how the “behind-the-scenes” influences have created emotional damage. It may be time to have a heart-to-heart talk with a significant other. Let them know you’re in their corner.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—This is a week where you are getting the “other side of the story” from a friend or family member. With all of the information you receive, keep it close to your heart until you know exactly what to do with it. Some situations may call for a “count to 10” time-out before reacting. If you go off before you’ve had time to process this, you will regret what may come out of your mouth.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Changes are guaranteed to create positive influences now in your personal life. Take the risk, and don’t underestimate yourself and your abilities. You can call upon your charm and wit to make the most of this connection. This is a highly-charged year filled with promise. Make the most of this coming month’s opportunities.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—A recent connection with family and friends allowed you to learn a lot about yourself, how much you have grown and developed over the last three years. Now, you can utilize this newfound talent and help others along the way. Your tactful words of encouragement ring true to another who admires you. You may have helped them more than you realize.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Be very conscious of not appearing to favor one individual over another. This aspect may be arriving through family, friends or a work situation. Others may be frustrated with you as a result of this action, and if you’re not aware of it, you won’t understand why. This weekend should be full of romantic energy. This is a great time to spend a quiet evening at home.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Listen carefully to the words another is bringing voice to. Do not overlook the obvious. Your head has been full of other pressures and stress, so it would be easy for you to not “hear” what is actually being said. This negative undertone needs to be addressed immediately before it begins to affect you and your loved ones’ long-term relationships. You can no longer sleep through this aspect; wake up and stand your ground.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Someone from your past will pop up quite unexpectedly. This allows you the ability to see exactly how you got from point A to point B. Clarity is a blessing and allows you to grow and not remain stagnant. A work situation is about to make a change for the better. An offer you can’t refuse will arrive shortly. Go for it.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Make your intentions known with a significant other or love option. Leaving everyone in the dark while you deal with your stagnant emotions may find you on the outside looking in. Express your love and concerns about the future of this relationship. The feedback will be 100 percent positive if you act now. Don’t wait until it’s too late.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Legal documents or financial situations appear to be favorable if you take a leap of faith. A light-haired female has information for you that will clear up an old, unresolved issue. You walk away from this feeling more confident than your previous emotional state. A new vehicle may be in the works for some of you. This is a choice, not a forced issue.
