Astrology: Your Horoscope, Week of April 27-May 3, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 27-May 3, 2011
This Week: It may appear the more you tried to mend something, the more complicated it became under these past planetary influences. The new moon in Taurus May 3 should help clear up the past month’s retrograde damage. Try to use this time for inner reflection and peace. This will be a good time to forgive and forget. Miscommunications have taken their toll on relationships this past month, but there is no room for grudges as we move into spring. It’s best to start anew, and begin to build a solid foundation for the future.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Take one step at a time, and try not to break through the starting gate before the bell rings. You have crossed the imaginary finish line over and over with your deepest, darkest fears. As a result, you have not made much room for a positive outcome. Scrub the corners of your mind and even your physical space if you have to bring on the clarity you deserve. At week’s end, the stars begin to shine in your corner.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—An element of self-doubt is creating a black cloud to hang over your head in an unfair manner. You deserve to see yourself in a productive and prosperous place in this world. Once you can remove the negative influences from your realm, you are on a roll. Midweek brings positive developments with your career. Shine on.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Something has been creating quite a stir within your significant other’s emotional state. Although normally they are more than willing to share their conflicts with you, they have gone within at this time. Try not to take this personally, and provide some comic relief instead to distract them. When all is said and done, they may be able to share their deepest, darkest fears with you. By week’s end, things are looking up for the better.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Romantic influences are playful and mischievous. Make sure you can clear your slate at a moment’s notice to indulge in life’s simple little pleasures. You may need to make some decisions about your long-term path with love, but for now, you’re gathering all of the information you need to hit a home run. Home and property take on a new shape and form at this time.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Count the money, and keep the change for now. Your long-term goals are beginning to take shape and form. Try to see yourself in the best possible situation. As a result of this energy, you will accomplish your goals. Take some time out to reflect on the progress you have made. Once you can celebrate the accomplishments in life, the rest is a piece of cake.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Romance has been put on the back burner for way too long. It is time you take the initiative to make this happen. Do not set premature boundaries with a romantic prospect. Just allow this to unfold one day at a time. No one will hold a gun to your head to explain all of your life-long ambitions, unless you allow this to become an issue. Fun with friends and sporting activities arrives on the weekend. Accept invitations to socialize.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—Positive media or referrals from someone higher up arrive at this time. This allows those who are “not in the know” to become aware of all of your accomplishments. This also expands your career sector and provides personal growth in all arenas in life. As this begins to take place, make sure you pay it forward, and acknowledge those who have believed in you all along. They will be eternally grateful.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You are past the point of dealing with all of the heaviness that has been draped over you in the past month. Go within, and try to discover where this is coming from and what exactly you can do to change the situation at hand. It is not up to everyone else to do the work for you. Sometimes you need to roll up your sleeves and get the job done yourself. You have become concerned about the health and welfare of a female close to you. See what you can do to help her out.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You are feeling as though you want to flee from a painful situation and maybe even “get out of town” permanently. Try not to let the negative effects of others break your spirit. You may be saying to yourself, “I have been through this lesson over and over, why is this reoccurring now?” Well, someone else is trying to learn a valuable lesson from you the hard way, and I hate to say it, but “you’re the teacher again.” By week’s end, you will have the solitude to heal your wounds in a timely manner.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—An unexpected delay turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Try not to become too frustrated with all of this, and allow the cards to fall as they will. In the end, these all align in your favor as long as you refrain from saying, “I told you so.” Midweek brings in an opportunity for additional cash or a secondary income. Be open to all opportunities.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Take extra precautions with travel and communication this week. You need to allow yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Once you are through this short-term dilemma, you will find the “big picture” is about to reveal itself to you. You may be surprised as to who is behind door No. 3, but you won’t be disappointed.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Put in extra effort with your personal life this week. Avoiding it because of your own fear of loss will not make things any better. In fact, your fear could complicate issues even more. Watch the tendency to judge a book by its cover. Still waters run “very deep.”
