Astrology: Your Horoscope, Week of May 4-10, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 4-10, 2011
This Week: The agitated energy that was hanging on for dear life last week begins to shift and change for the better. It is as though many of you have reclaimed your sense of humor and have the ability to make light of the previous week’s negative energy. With that said and the moon waxing toward the full date of May 17 in Scorpio, this is a great time to launch new business ideas or move forward with a creative project. Efforts made during this time will have a positive outcome. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Past relationship issues could come to the surface this week, although they appear to bring some closure or validation for you. You have the clarity to move forward now, knowing this was what the universe intended. Finances are on the upswing, and it appears you do not have to draw blood to obtain it these days. Working smarter, not harder, is the name of the game. You have finally figured this out.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Shocking information you receive this week could bring tears of joy. Even though you have kept the faith, fear and doubt may have occasionally crept in. Your worries are finally over. Try not to look under rocks for new ones now—take a break from it all. Midweek offers a job opportunity or a career change for some of you. Follow up on leads, and expect the unexpected.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Love relationships require some attention. You can no longer overlook a problem that has been a reoccurring issue. This will not go away on its own. Confronting this situation head-on will give you the best results. It is a make-it-or-break-it time for love. Shoving your head in the sand is not going to help matters any. However, if you have found your relationship is being negatively affected by alcohol or drugs, you may need to leave it behind for good—the substance or the relationship.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Finally, my little Cancer friends are beginning to see a romantic shift come into view. Nothing but lessons and more lessons have been on the table regarding love the past two years. Now, there are options, as well as the opportunity to fix what was once broken. You may have looked back recently and said, “What was I thinking?” during that time. A positive mental attitude is obvious to those around you. All eyes are on you.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—You will find yourself favored and backed by an unexpected source. Someone has taken a “shine” to you and wants you to grow and develop beyond your wildest dreams. You present yourself well, and those in the “know” recognize your tenacity and charisma. The sky is the limit now. Be open for the love and respect that is available to you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—Single Virgos have a secret admirer. Their life may be a little bit complicated, and they are working diligently to straighten it out. As spring rolls into summer, you will find they have cleared the slate to make room for you. Be conscious and aware of those around you. You’re in a position to improve the quality of your life immensely. Attached Virgos are affected by a second honeymoon stage in their relationship sector. Who says Venus retrograde has to be a bad thing?
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—You may feel a bit overwhelmed with legal documents and paperwork now. Take your time and work your way through this slowly. Dot every “i” and cross every “t.” In the end, this will pay off in your favor. You’re beginning to get back to your old self, and as a result of this energy, you’re drawing to you invitations to socialize. Accept offers from those tried and true friends to get out and about. You won’t regret it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—You are being observed as a humanitarian as well as an affectionate creature. Try to be aware of your surroundings. All eyes are on you…pay attention! You’re back to a balanced, peaceful existence. Too much activity last week may have gotten on your last nerve. This is a great time to spend a night alone with your significant other. Enjoy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—You are very aware of the negativity that has been surrounding you for a while now. The question is, what to do with it? You’re extremely sensitive to what others are “bringing voice to” and are watching how this may affect your life. After a while, enough is enough with the excuses you have in your head for another’s ill-bred behavior. Love yourself first.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—A new career or project in your work environment will put a spring in your step. Listen carefully, and look for signs that will gently point you in the right direction. It is obvious you require a change of pace, possibly a brand-new area to promote growth emotionally. Now is the time this will align. Pay close attention to detail.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—With some people, you just can’t go “by the book.” Take each case scenario and put your own personal spin on this issue. If you try to put everyone in a box, you will only sell yourself short in the long run. Some people may have the characteristics of one personality, and yet they do not fit the criteria of the textbook analysis. Feel free to allow some flexibility when you’re working with others. Trust your gut, and throw out the book.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—Don’t trip over a $100 bill to pick up a nickel this week. If you start dissecting every penny, you may lose the opportunity to hit it big in the near future. Someone was very generous with his or her time and energy recently. Take a step back, and make sure you acknowledge their kindness. If you don’t, it will be a cold day in hell before you see this aspect return.
