Astrology: Your Horoscope, Week of March 30-April 5, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of March 30-April 5, 2011
This Week: Buckle your seat belts, we are heading into another delightful Mercury retrograde March 30-April 23. Now, these cosmic bumps in out planetary activity affect communication and travel, for the most part. However, this isn’t always an entirely negative time frame.
The past can resurface in positive light as well—friends and family making connections that normally nobody has time for in this busy life.
Allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Check and double-check incoming and outgoing messages, and if you are traveling, make sure your most important essentials are under your seat.
Delays in luggage arrivals can be prominent during this time. Toothbrushes, underwear and blow dryers should be on your carry-on bag. Then, everything else will fall into place. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—A bright spot arrives midweek with an old flame or friendship that has been put on the back burner for a while now. Make connections and set time aside to get together with these individuals. You will receive positive news from long distance as well. An offer to travel will be on the table this month. Go for it. You need a break.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Make time for yourself this week, no matter what demands others may try to impose on you. No matter what the outside appearance may be with a past love or friendship, the truth is totally opposite. If you cannot get to the bottom of this, then let it be for good. You have way too many positive aspects going on right now to allow this old stuff to shake you up. New friends and acquaintances bring positive connections. Accept invitations to move around.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—An outside influence is able to help you see all sides of the story. In the long run, this will improve the quality of your life and relationships. When everything is moving in perfect alignment, you’re able to reap the benefits of every aspect of your life. If another is trying to put you in the position of choosing sides, it is your right not to make the choice at all. In other words, if you can’t say anything nice about someone, don’t say anything at all.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—You may have been amused by the repeat insanity around you, but don’t take it personally. Try to see the humor in this reoccurring aspect. Otherwise, you will feel like jumping off the Golden Gate bridge, and last time I checked, the water is still a little too cold for swimming. Midweek arrives with new business contacts, so you want to be presenting yourself in the best possible light. All eyes are on you.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Out of the blue, you feel relieved and loved, and you’re willing to accept these aspects without dissecting them down to the size of a flea. You have sisters and brothers and loved ones who might not even fall into the old biological “family tree.” However, you’re able to recognize the connection and are willing to allow these aspects to follow through with your life. The weekend promises some mixed blessing of love and healing, except those around you who are in this for the long haul.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—This will prove to be one of the most productive weeks you have experienced in a long time. Friends, family and sporting activities have you showing yourself in the best possible light. Make sure you have allowed time for an intimate gathering with food and great conversation. This is definitely a learning experience.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You can feel a friend or family member is not quite up to snuff. Gently encourage them to explain what exactly is going on. Keep your mouth closed, and listen intently. You will have the perfect solution once you have gathered all of the facts. You will be at the right place at the right time at week’s end. Enjoy!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—A chance meeting at a restaurant or pub will find you at the right place at the right time. Someone who has been “checking you out” will approach you with some nervous small talk. Try your best to allow them to feel comfortable. You will be amazed at how much you have in common. This energy may also affect your career sector and provide you with a new workplace for the better. Synchronicity is key here. Go for it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You are about to go for the gusto, and your plate will be extremely full. Finances are not half as bad as they seem, and you will find a surprise lump sum of cash about to hit your bank account shortly. Although this may be long overdue, who cares? It’s yours now, and it’s time to decide what you will do with your unexpected “winnings.” Investing in a sports-related or artistic activity would soothe your soul.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—Pay close attention to correspondence from afar. You may be missing something in the mix as a result of it. You’re overwhelmed, and you’ve been having trouble keeping all of your records straight. An oversight should be addressed immediately. Allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. You do not need any difficult conflicts with time, money or energy now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Connecting with family may have left you feeling a bit melancholy. Try not to worry. Expect good things to come to those you hold in high regard. The examples you have provided for those who are younger or less knowledgeable than you have created quite a stir. You are a big breath of fresh air at this time.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—An expansion with clientele or career has you feeling on top of your game. A recent connection has been singing your praises, and those who trust and follow “their” judgment are interested in the gifts you provide. Put your best foot forward. All eyes are on you. Do not let an aggravating mother figure or sibling get you all wound up. Peace, at all costs.
