Your Horoscope: Week of June 30-July 6, 2010
This Week: This time frame allows us to rest up and recuperate from last week’s agitating and aggressive planetary aspects. It still may be difficult to shake off some of the behavior that may have crossed your path, but let it go. This is only a “mirror” of what is really going on inside of those with no joy or inner peace. Be grateful that behavior like this does not exist within you. Try not to let it become contagious.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—It may be “back to basics” for many Aries this week. No big deal. In fact, this is a very grounding experience. You can start at square one and go from there. Be conscious not to neglect your loved ones in the process. Children and pets highlight midweek with love and humor. Take each step with care this week.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—All of your past heartache will be healed as a result of your determined efforts. Out of nowhere, so many old wounds will be put to rest once and for all. Why you needed to experience them as well as what you have learned from them will make perfect sense now. An old soul will reappear in a new, healthy physical presence. You will recognize this at this time.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Oh, how gently the winds of change have blown back in your favor now. Just enough to allow you to absorb this at a pace you’re able to deal with. Your energy and vitality are coming back full force. The healing process is very unique, and no two people do this at the same pace or time frame. Finally, you feel as though you’re “back in your own body.” What a great place to be.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Allow another to repair the “damage” created by his or her own actions. You should not judge or fuel the fire of situations that do not concern you. Try to see the other side of the story as well. In a gentle and affective way, point out these factors to a loved one for them to work through. Then, back away and watch the outcome as a spectator sport. You may be surprised at the outcome.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Your confidence level has switched back to “normal,” and you’re out to set the town on fire this week. Your emotional setback was only a momentary lapse of reason. Back in your own skin, you are able to feel things like never before. Midweek brings positive reinforcement from an unexpected source. You can leave a past matter behind for good.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Take time out to plan your long-term goals, dreams and ambitions this week. As difficult as this might be to “sit still” for a moment or two, it must be done. Your accomplishments have not been acknowledged from your own inner core. Once you’re able to do that, the rest is easy. This is the perfect time for an epiphany. Take advantage of this now.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Too many secrets will only add up to more cover-ups and more deception. It’s time to come clean and ask for help from your loved ones. Why would they judge you? These aspects will not change until you become honest with your own thoughts and feelings. If you have been projecting your anger on those who are smaller or weaker than you, this will only come back to haunt you in an unexpected way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Oh, yeah…you’re thinking this is all too good to be true, and you’re waiting for a shoe to drop now, right? Well, you can wait all day, but it’s not going to happen. Relax and watch how the universe takes care of you. Try not to put those closest to you under a microscope. What you can see with the naked eye is exactly what it is.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Accept an invitation to advance your personal best. Another will challenge you to go the extra mile. At first, this may feel like an attack. However, this will push you through a “birth canal” that you have not yet experienced. Bring your humor and your good heart to this occasion. Your positive energy will be contagious.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Early this week, you will be presented with what appear to be impossible challenges. Block out the “drama,” and move forward with a focused heart and mind. By Friday, you will receive the recognition you deserve with blessings from “higher ups.” Accept this to accent your long-term goal in a positive way.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—The past seems to be haunting you, and it may be difficult to move forward. This is a frustrating and even hurtful time frame. However, help is on the way. An unconventional person from your past is able to move you through these difficulties and show you a new perspective with this heartache. Allow those around you to comfort you. By week’s end, you will begin to see the light of day.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—The past will only get in your way if you allow it to. This is a wonderful time for new beginnings. Learn from your mistakes, and do not allow them to affect the quality if your life. An increase in pay is on the horizon. Share your good fortunes with those who matter the most to you.
