Your Horoscope: Week of July 13-19, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 13-19, 2011
This Week: The full moon July 15 in Capricorn is totally eclipse-“free” … whew. July will have a few ups and downs, but nothing as severe as June was with all of the turbulent eclipse activity. You may even find this full moon provides a little bit of long-overdue ambition, allowing us some much-needed positive energy to get the job done. Make sure you take some time off to play as well. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — News of a wedding or birth of a baby puts you in a fabulous emotional place early on this week. You are able to indulge in the simple things in life for a moment or two before you get back to the grindstone. Celebrating the love that is exchanged between friends and family can become quite contagious. This energy carries on with you through week’s end.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may be a little bored with all of the responsibilities on your plate early this week. This is a great time to distribute tasks to those who are standing on the sidelines with nothing better to do than watch you struggle. A fresh start with a romantic interest puts things in the proper perspective. You both realize you’re on the same page now.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An unexpected offer or contract sets you above and beyond your own expectations. You feel as though you can breathe a bit before starting in with your next endeavor. This is a great time to re-evaluate your heath and general well-being. If you have been overindulgent with certain elements, you’re in a prime position to leave these darker aspects behind for good.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Before you “flee the country,” first try setting some boundaries in your own back yard. If it appears you are revisiting the same type of energy exchanges over and over, take a step back to figure out why. If you remove yourself from the “moment,” you can recognize what’s really at the bottom of it all. By week’s end, an important factor weaves its way into your fabric.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Be brave and do not let another manipulate your emotions. Instead of worrying about negative aspects that may happen, focus on all of the blessings that have occurred up until this point. This glass-half-empty mentality you have been harboring is not doing you any good and is drawing in more of the same type of energy. The perfect solution for a long-standing problem arrives by week’s end.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A definite shift is evident in the way you’re handling your own inner fears. Instead of projecting them onto others, you are facing them head on and removing them one by one. As a result, those around you may be more interested in exchanging energy with you. Romance seems to be falling into place. The past is in the past for good now.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — This long, drawn-out legal element or frustrating contract should be put to rest shortly. This will give you an opportunity to focus more on your personal long-term goals. A worry may arise this week involving the health of a friend or family member. Try to remain objective, and don’t panic. The end result is more positive than the initial problem.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may want to focus on a long-term financial plan. You will be in a position to make favorable contacts shortly. As a result, business is booming in one way or another. The weekend provides time to concentrate on a personal matter more closely. You have the perfect solution to a long-standing problem.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You may be a bit spooked by information you receive during dream time or experiencing strong feelings of déjà vu. Understand the messages we receive are to benefit us and not to harm us. Allow this to work to your advantage, and all will make more sense by week’s end. Fiances are improving shortly. Don’t panic.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romance takes a strong turn for the better this week. Time away or hectic schedules actually work in your favor for quality alone time over the weekend with your significant other. There is plenty to share, and unexpected positive news arrives shortly.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Take it easy on another who is trying to work his or her way through a difficult problem. Sometimes the “tough love” approach doesn’t work for certain individuals as well as others. You will be shocked to hear some interesting information about a person from your past. Keep this to yourself for now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Your family will be going through a major healing process as a result of an outside influence. An old romantic problem will be put to rest once and for all, and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. As a result, your energy level shifts, and you can focus on your long-term goals.
