Astrology: Your Horoscope, Week of May 11-17, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 11-17, 2011
This Week: Does it feel like you’ve walked under a ladder or had a black cat cross your path? Change your luck for the better on Friday the 13th (of May), and stop by one of my favorite haunted hangs, the Hope and Anchor Pub, 5040 N. Second St., Loves Park. I will being doing mini readings there from 7 p.m. until ?. Be there, or be square. The full moon May 17 in Scorpio allows plenty of opportunities for choices, as well as invokes the sensual and passionate nature in all of us. Enjoy this touchy-feely time frame.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—It’s time you contact someone who can help you with a legal issue or a financial matter. This may be more than you can handle on your own, and it will feel much better to have this aspect off your back entirely. Finances begin to improve. If your significant other is still entangled with a past matter or person, it’s time to put the brakes on that for good. You’re not in a position to listen to this destructive chatter in your home. It’s not healthy for anyone involved.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—You may be concerned about an animal or child this week. Some health or emotional issues are creating some havoc with your primary family. A solution to this comes about in the weeks to come. For now, offer emotional support. A change in residence or within your residence will definitely create a shift for the better. Get rid of things you no longer need.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—Watch your tendency to correct or reprimand another. He or she may be paying very close attention to every word that flies out of your mouth and quietly preparing his or her exit. You can’t accuse another of being overly sensitive as you take a jackhammer to them. Gentle persuasion and praise will give you the results you need in the long run. Expect your finances to improve dynamically now. Help another in need.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Romance takes a positive spin for the better this week. The communication gap that has left you so frustrated is closing, and you’re getting your point across in a productive way. Actions speak louder than words. Try not to make “the words” such an issue. Expansion with your social sector allows you to mix business with pleasure.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Offers are on the table with your business and career sector this week. Others have been networking for you, and the results are beginning to show. You will be negotiating financial aspects shortly. Don’t be shy about what you’re entitled to. You will be enjoying the opportunities that have expanded your social sector. New friends and activities allow you to really “be yourself.”
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—A hidden romantic aspect will begin to show its face this month. You may be surprised at how much this will affect and improve the quality of your life. Timing is everything, and you have been off track with this for a while now. Those of you who are attached will find new life breathing into an established relationship. Those of you who are single will not be single long.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—This would be a good week to re-establish your personal character. Many of you have become lost in others’ lives and situations. As a result, you have lost sight of yourselves. It’s an easy thing to do, but not always easy to recognize. Go back to square one with your own dreams, goals and ambitions. Take time to check in with a friend or family member. You need a good laugh, and you know exactly where to find it this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Even though you’re surrounded by friends and family, you have felt lonely over the last week or so. This disconnected feeling will begin to wear off during the month of May. The uncertainty of your long-term path is what’s at the bottom of the problem. Add a little fear into the mix, and you’re off into anxiety land. Sit down with another whose opinion matters to you, and discuss your long-term ideas. You will find the emotional support you need.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—The month of May is filled with financial opportunities, and you have a better grip on where your money is going. You’re letting go of obligations that are wearing on your pocketbook. You will also find some unexpected help when you need it. A situation from your past is about to be resolved in a favorable way. This has been weighing on your mind for a long time now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—You will be asked to go above and beyond the call of duty at home or work this week. Try not to overexaggerate the situation, and keep your opinions to yourself until all is said and done. That will be time to offer up your suggestions. Allow yourself enough time to get from point A to point B this week. Otherwise, travel difficulties could affect you in a negative way.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Not everyone can fit into the “box” you may see them in. You must consider many factors before you correctly diagnose the problem. Gather more information before you lay down your closing argument. Then, and only then, will you be able to correctly assess the situation. Romance is a bit confusing at first; however, by week’s end, you’re back on track again.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—An upgrade in your position through your work environment is going to be available shortly. It’s time to rise and shine and allow the powers that be to see your abilities. Keep a positive attitude this week, and do not allow your personal life to affect your career sector. Travel plans may be on the horizon shortly. A great deal may be found if you do a little investigating.
