Astrology: Your Horoscope: Week of April 20-26, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 20-26, 2011
This Week: Now that the sun is officially moving into the powerful sign of Taurus, we can begin to focus on long-term financial goals. Money has always been noted for being the root of all evil. The truth of the matter is, it is merely a simple exchange of energy, and there is plenty enough to go around. The fear of lack or loss attaches itself to it and creates a negative stigma of money. This month holds the key for you to make friends with this energy. Remember to pay it forward each and every day. The tighter you grip, the slipperier it gets. Romance is highly charged at this time. Enjoy the simple pleasures in life with your significant other. If you are single, expect an opportunity for a summer romance to begin.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Take a moment to reflect on all of your accomplishments. Too much emphasis may be on where you are “not” as opposed to where you “are.” When you can truly embrace all you have achieved, a second wind will arrive and take you to the next level. A past love may regret leaving you behind and want to make amends this week. It may be too little too late for you.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—You may be instrumental in hooking up people who can grow and develop from one another. If you see the connection, allow yourself to become the catalyst for this aspect to take place. A little time and energy on your part will create a positive karmic “payback.” Romance will no longer be a struggle during your birthday month. What’s old is new again.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Take the time to celebrate the achievements of another this week. If you pour some energy into a loved one’s accomplishments, your own life will show even more promise and success. A little underlying fear may accompany this individual’s leap of faith. Tell them you know they will succeed. You will score a major business contact this week. All of the stars align in your favor.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Large groups or organizations will be singing your praises. Make sure you are available to receive your rewards. Hiding out in your shell will not benefit you at this time. It’s your turn to shine, dress for success and hit the pavement running. You have a lot of catching up to do this week. A new friend sees you in an entirely different light. By week’s end, you will have expanded your social circle even more.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Try to find some humor in this short-term work project you’re involved in; otherwise, you will lose your mind with all of the nonsense involved with it. You may have been strategically placed in this setting to teach those around you valuable lessons. For one, how to lighten up! If they don’t end up “getting it,” consider the source, and move on. Maybe down the road it will sink in somehow. You are making a difference. It may not be evident now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—It may be time to put “plan B” into effect with your finances. You’re on the upswing, and you have to believe in yourself. The minute we start allowing fear to infiltrate our lives, we’re asking for trouble. You’ve worked hard, and you’re entitled to some simple pleasures in life. An old friendship may try to revise itself this week. Although you may have your reservations regarding this aspect, it may be a good idea to “hear them out.” You will find knowledge in this interaction, regardless of the outcome.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Romance will bring you so much clarity this week. You’re in a place where you can acknowledge your heart’s desires and live your life to the fullest. Bring thanks to those who have encouraged you to take a leap of faith. If you remember to do this, you will receive all the more blessings in the near future. A child or pet may require some praise and encouragement. A little bit goes a long way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You know exactly what you want and how to get it. This may take some time, and patience may not be one of your strongest virtues, but this will arrive eventually. Something is to be said for earning it yourself, whether this is an item, an emotion or an accomplishment. Now that you can see you have the ability to do this on your own, the rest should fall magically into place. You have the opportunity to resolve some differences with another this week. Get it over with.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—Romance may require your undivided attention this week. Sweeping this aspect under the rug will only create a pile you could trip over later. If you take a compassionate approach, you will see immediate results. Finances are powerful, and additional income may come from a creative source. It’s time to dust off the canvas and utilize these gifts of yours for the greater good. Place items you have no use for up for sale. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—You’re going through an emotional rebirth. As you emerge from your darkness, you are able to see how valuable your contributions to humanity are. These aspects allow us to strip away all of the old and create a new way of thinking and receiving. This is a valuable time to rebuild your life. The weekend is filled with surprises.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—A dark-haired male makes an offer you can’t refuse this week. Why not look at all of the possibilities that could develop out of this endeavor? You’re in a position to expand and grow now. Put your ideas into action. The rippling effect of this benefits everyone involved.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—You may be feeling a little bit under the weather emotionally or physically early this week. Try not to put a guilt trip on yourself about what you have or have not accomplished. Take time to rest and focus on your health instead. By week’s end, you will be able to make up for lost time, and there will be room for a little amusement as well. Finances are improving this month.
