Your Horoscope: Week of July 14-20, 2010
This Week: Now that we have survived the wicked set of eclipses that challenged us to the core over the past couple weeks, it is time to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and clean up the fallout. The past few weeks provided the opportunity to see things as they really are, and the 11th of July provided the opportunity to start fresh. Out with the old and in with the new. This rippling effect will provide favorable changes in the weeks to come. Grab the brass ring now!
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Be gentle and kind with one who is a little bit scatterbrained this week. Everyone knows you’re overtired and spread thin, except for this particular individual. I promise you, if you can show some compassion for those less fortunate in mind, body and spirit, the universe will reward you in the very near future for your “good deed-doing.”
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—It may feel as though another is trying to hold you down or drown you, no matter what direction you turn early this week. Close off those emotional connections to an “ill-willed individual.” You cannot fix him or her, no matter how much this may break your heart. Move on, and connect with your inner self on a brand-new level. Finances are fantastic now—take advantage of this high road, as there is more to come.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—You have such a gift to “tell it like it is,” and now is your time to shine. No questions exist about your integrity, and you may have to call someone on the carpet about his or her ill-bred behavior. Once you make a stand, others will applaud your delivery. You’re a strong presence in the hearts and minds of those who love and respect you.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—You have walked through a “port hole,” and you may not quite understand the full magnitude of its power. This is OK. Allow this to arrive in stages, and be open to the possibilities of the greater good working through you. When all is said and done, you have grown this past year in leaps and bounds. Now, it’s time to thank the Academy for recognizing you as a force to be reckoned with.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—This is no time to “pick a fight” with someone who matters to you the most. Outside influences may be putting pressure on you to “fix” something you can’t. Be fair to those who are nearest and dearest to you now. These people are the ones who will be there when your darkest hours arrive. The others will be off in left field somewhere, waiting to pick your bones when it’s over. In other words, “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” this week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—You may become very emotional over a family matter or a childhood memory. Search this reaction to the core, and see if you can find a resolution to this aspect. You may find during your search that these elements have been affecting you all along. If you can own up to your behavior with others, you can fix this internal struggle.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You may feel an overwhelming sense of anxiety early this week. This will lift shortly, if you just put your nose to the grindstone and move through your responsibilities in record time. After that, there is time to spare for some extracurricular activities such as fine food and wine. It’s time to get out and about and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. You are enlightened enough already.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—It may feel as though someone close to you is looking too far ahead with scenarios that could have drastic results. This might feel frustrating to you, but at the same time, it might not hurt to at least listen to what they have to say. Perhaps in the burr of their own fears, some truth may be evident. A loved one feels left out of your life. Find a remedy for this situation.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You may be on guard or finding yourself extremely emotional. Try to set your mind to the tasks at hand and disconnect yourself from a hurtful situation. By week’s end, a solution to a long-standing problem will arrive. Meantime, finances and work opportunities are great. Set some cash aside for a rainy day.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Forces “behind the scenes” are working in your favor to make things align in your world. This takes time, energy and patience. You have the ability to fight the dragon that has reared its ugly head around you. But you need to be true to yourself. There is no room for compromise with illegal substance or addictive behavior. You need to call it as you see it, but with the strong element of truth.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—You may be put to a spiritual test early on this week that could leave you a bit confused at first. When all is said and done, you will see how you have been played and why. From there, it is nothing short of the wrath of God that will contain you. Expect the universe to lend you a hand in the communications department. Spirit speaks through you this week.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—No matter where you are this week, the universe shines on you in your favor. You’ve had a bit of a tough time, and this week you can “do no wrong.” Your emotional state will not suffer any more from unresolved stress. You are at peace with yourself and those around you. So many familiar faces arrive at this time.
