Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 24-30, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 24-30, 2011
This Week: This is a great time to clear away emotional or physical clutter from your home environment. These items could be very useful to another in need. Donate used clothing, coats and furniture to your local shelters. You will see a grand improvement in the quality of your life as a result. This is also a time when intuition runs very high, and communication with those from the beyond are likely during dream time. Pay close attention to what they are trying to tell you.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You are preparing for some rest and relaxation now. There is no time for guilt. You need this break more than anything. Everything else will just “have to wait.” If you’re running on an empty tank of gas, what good will that do you? Past memories of family may be weighing heavily on your mind. Then, out of the blue, an epiphany arrives, providing an answer to a long, drawn-out emotional aspect.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You’re finally seeing light at the end of the tunnel with family health or emotional aspects. The power of prayer is evident in your life. Miracles happen every day. A new source of emotional support arrives unexpectedly. Prepare for change with home and property. This is a blessing.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Like clockwork, your personal life has taken a major turn for the better. Could it be the efforts you have put toward this have been recognized? Have you been able to recognize the efforts of another? Validating a loved one speaks volumes about yourself. This is the time to do it. Getting out and about will definitely help matters, not only your social sector, but your business aspects as well.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Now you feel like you have a major “mess” to clean up. Not so fast; maybe this is not your work to do. By allowing others to pass the buck, you’re going to become very resentful shortly. Delegate your authority, and trust this will be handled effectively. A windfall is arriving shortly. Put this away for a rainy day.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Be EXTRA careful you are not being “ripped off” by another. Talk is cheap, but documents need to be clarified or guarded now. You may have spent the last few years trusting the wrong person instead of the right one. Now, you will be able see clearly where you need to be.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Travel will be the topic, revolving around pleasure instead of business — something that will manifest after the first of the year with romantic overtones. It’s a wonderful opportunity to relieve stress and to connect on a deeper level. Midweek, you finally have the OK with an old work-related issue. Financial windfalls arrive as a result.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may find yourself a little more emotional than normal. Expect the universe will protect your loved ones from harm and that everything works out as it should. If material aspects have been on the table lately, pay close attention to where this might be coming from. It’s better to give than to receive.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This may be hard to look at now; however, it’s very important to be on guard with a family member’s health or emotional well-being. If you cannot handle it directly, then make sure a qualified individual is aware of this situation. Know your limitations, and try not to feel overwhelmed with it all. Looking the other way is not going to help anyone, especially you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Pay close attention to your dreams and what they may be telling you. Your intuition is dead on. Seeing is believing. Take advantage of this time frame to manifest what you need and desire out of life. A change with residence or work will be on the table shortly. This is an option to be considered, not a forced issue. Changes in your appearance are highlighted.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Advantages through your work environment will be evident this week. Check to see what will be the most effective for your long-term goals now, and then go for it. Additional schooling or training may be involved. Your advancement is based on your efforts now. Expect the best midweek when a loved one offers you a night on the town.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You’re hearing from a long-distance loved one. This seems to be just what the doctor ordered to get you out of your recent slump. An invitation to get together should be accepted. Spruce up your wardrobe, or make a change in your appearance — others will notice.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Long-distance communication will offer an option that is quite appealing. Financially or emotionally, you may be considering a change in scenery. To start over in a new environment may be just what the doctor ordered. Expand upon your possibilities, or brainstorm with another regarding your long-term goals.
