Your Horoscope, Week of June 22-28, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 22-28, 2011
This Week: Preparing you a little bit early for the July 1 solar eclipse in Cancer, which will be heavily influenced with some other powerful planets in activity. The sun’s eclipse is to remind you to stay true to yourself, and love and appreciate yourself. The moon’s influence reminds you to pay close attention to your own intuition and to use it to your advantage. Saturn’s in the mix wanting you to work and strive hard, even though you may feel discouraged. Pluto will help you let go of activities or individuals that no longer serve you, and Uranus will arrive to provide bravery so you will not fear change or worry about marching to a different drummer. Even though these heavily-armed planets may create quite a stir while moving, allow them to work with you and for you for your own ultimate good.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)—Enjoy the festivities and allow yourself the luxury of a few days off. You will be overwhelmed with positive new business opportunities soon enough, so reserve your strength for the upcoming events. A friend or family member from the past may be dominating your thoughts right now. Pick up the phone and make a connection. You will be pleased with the results.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)—Legal documents and paperwork provide you with excellent results this week. Finances improve, and your long-term goals are beginning to materialize. Shifts and changes with home and property have you on top of the world. This is a wonderful time to celebrate your hard work and energy. Expect this activity to move quickly. Be prepared for hard work with big payoffs.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)—There may be cause for a celebration at this time. Your hard work and efforts are paying off in a big way. Others appreciate your ability to make their dreams come true. In the grand scheme of things, your own dreams are coming true as well. Romance is taking a turn for the better. Express your love and devotion now.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)—Happy birthday! This month starts out with a bang, and you’re in the center of it all. Try your best to meet all of your social obligations. A positive outcome arrives from mixing business with pleasure. Your financial sector begins to shift for the better. Focus on gain and not “the lack,” and all will be fine.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)—Romance may require a little bit of TLC. However, those around you will be more than willing to provide you the affection you desire. Set time aside for your own personal care as well. A trip to the gym or a day at the salon will do you a world of good, allowing you to put your best foot forward. Try not to allow a crabby co-worker to get under your skin. Their issues are not yours to own.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)—If you want to get to the bottom of a problem, try not to go at another with a hatchet. No one responds well to intimidation techniques—they will only learn to evade and avoid you entirely. If this isn’t ringing a bell, it’s possible you’re on the other end of this type of energy. If that’s the case, close it off completely. You have plenty of people who you enjoy exchanging energy with. Stick with those who lift you up in life.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)—It may be difficult to keep your head above water this week emotionally. You’re processing so much that even the simplest mundane tasks could be difficult. Take time to rejuvenate yourself or indulge in one of your own “simple pleasures” in life. A client or co-worker will show you unconditional love. Take it wherever you can get it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)—Romantic aspects are favorable. Allow yourself time for these simple displays of affection. As the month rolls on, you will be caught up in a very hectic schedule. This will become a highly-charged productive time for you. At last, you can see a clear path with your long-term goals.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)—July starts out with a bang. Social commitments and a busy workload may not seem to leave room for personal goals or hobbies. With that said, plan your days accordingly to balance your lifestyle. It can be done, there just won’t be any time allowed for laziness. Your physical appearance is changing for the better. All eyes are on you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)—This is a great time to focus on your health. Diet and exercise shift your energy into high gear. This will create an incentive that you have been craving recently. Invite friends or family for an impromptu gathering at week’s end. You deserve a break.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)—Be cautious not to judge another too harshly early on this week. Be gentle with those who do not appear to be themselves. A traumatic aspect is affecting someone close to you. It may take more than a little coaxing to get this all out in the open. Once it does, you will know exactly how to handle this aspect effectively.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)—This week calls for a time of celebration. You have accomplished so many overwhelming tasks, and now you are able to kick back and relax for a bit. That annoying edgy feeling has finally “flown the coup.” Friends and family seem to be back to their normal selves. Humor is the best medicine.
