Astrology: Your Horoscope, Week of April 13-19, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 13-19, 2011
This Week: A beautiful full moon in Libra (April 17-18) will offer a calming energy, offsetting the rough Mercury retrograde we are going through. Take advantage of this romantic element, and enjoy some quiet time with your loved ones. After the 23rd of April, we will be done with this mean, old Mercury retrograde for a while. Remember, it can be just as vicious going out as it was coming in. Watch your step the weekend of the 23rd. Be cautious with travel and communication. It would not be the best time to attempt to iron out difficulties. Fly under the radar during that time.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—A concern about a loss may have you feeling a bit lost or distracted early this week. Concentrate on mundane tasks, and push yourself through this anxiety. Midweek, this begins to lift, and unexpected news from the past reveals a bright spot for you to focus on. An Aries, Leo or Sagittarius female has a connection for mixing business with pleasure. Be open for new opportunities.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Remember, Dorothy learned that if you ever go looking for your own heart’s desire, don’t look any farther than your own back yard. In other words, the power and the resources you need to calm your internal storm lie within you. It’s just a matter of taking a leap of faith and trusting the universe will not let you down. You can point fingers all day long at those around you, but at the end of the day, you’re responsible for your own happiness. Take charge of it. You deserve the best.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—This hectic schedule you’ve been dealing with will begin to pay off big time now. The universe is working with you to improve your finances and resources. All eyes are on you this week as you roll up your sleeves and get the job done. You receive praise and support from the strangest places now. Accept this vote of confidence graciously.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—If you have been holding your own personal “pity party,” it’s time to knock it off and get back to work. If not, set a better boundary with those who have been stealing your precious energy and taking advantage of your healing nature. It may not be evident to you just how much of a drain this has become until it’s too late. Surround yourself with those who are making a difference in this world, and don’t hold back. Your contributions to a larger cause will be evident.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—If you have been grieving or feeling a tremendous amount of heaviness, try not to concern yourself with this element too much. This will begin to shift during the month of May, and you will find yourself removing old wounds from your system once and for all. An opportunity for employment or a business idea will arrive this month. This will help with this internal shift.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—An unconventional sport or hobby is supposed to create relief for you, not more anxiety. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself to be the “best,” and try living in the moment. It is these little “moments” that help us grow emotionally, mentally and physically. Be conscious of what you bring voice to. The louder you emphasize on what you don’t want, the quicker it will come to you. Mother Theresa said, “I won’t come to your anti-war demonstration; however, I will arrive for a pro-peace rally.” With that said, speak of what you want and need, and it will manifest.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—A final agreement with a long-standing problem will finally fall into place this week. Now, you can concentrate on bigger and better things that are coming into view. Expansion and growth with business are arriving this month, and you need to be prepared. This is a time to celebrate. Try not to worry too much about how you will manage this aspect. Everything will fall magically into place.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You have gone within and located your soul in the past few weeks. Now, it’s time to bring your findings to the attention of those around you who matter. What you have learned can be deeply beneficial to friends and loved ones. Gently encourage those around you to stretch their imaginary limitations. Your presentation will be received with gratitude.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—The universe has provided you with some “down time” to get those nagging, mundane tasks in order. Try not to fret about work or money this week. You will be slammed with an overload of responsibilities during the month of May. Finances will be a major focus this month as well. You are able to catch up and set some money aside for a rainy day. Don’t let extra money burn an unnecessary hole in your pocket.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—You will find yourself overwhelmed with pride as a loved one accomplishes a long-term goal. Express this with a deep sense of love and commitment to them. Your words are so powerful now, you could move mountains with them. Don’t hold back. Allow spirit to speak through you. You can change the course of another’s life with your emotional support. As a result of this, your own personal power begins to grow.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Large gatherings provide good business opportunities this week. Even if you feel as though you want to “hide out” from social activities, this is not the time to become a couch potato. This energy shift is a powerful one. Take advantage of new surroundings and connections made at this time. You won’t regret it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—This constant battle between friends or family members is getting on your last nerve. You may have to excuse yourself from the “drama” and find a comfortable spot to hide midweek. As you go within, you will be able to tap into your inner voice and heal your own wounds. Once this is accomplished, you are able to hang on to your own sanity. Walk wide of those who continue to stay in the mud.
