Week of Aug. 31-Sept. 6, 2011
This Week: As we all begin to feel the dust settle from our previous Mercury retrograde that went direct last Friday, Aug. 26, we should begin to see some relief with the cosmic forces. I don’t know about you, but I found this past week extremely difficult — emotionally as well as physically. I am looking forward to dusting myself off and getting back up on the horse. I suggest the rest of you do the same. If there was an emotional conflict that arrived Aug. 25 or 26 between you and a friend or loved one, now would be the time to work through it. Try not to allow these upheavals to continue into the Labor Day holiday. This is our last, big hurrah for the summer. Make it a safe and memorable one.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Avoid family conflicts like the plague. You will not be able to get to the heart of an upsetting matter until mid-October. All of the information you need has not been presented quite yet. Until you have digested everything, there won’t be an answer to this dilemma. On a high note, finances will improve midweek. Take some time out to rest and rejuvenate.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Unusual information arrives this week. There may be an element of truth to this aspect. However, the timing seems to be a bit off course. Try not to overreact to this at first. Put this in your back pocket for future reference. You will find this information to have a stronger bearing in weeks to come. The health of a Aries, Leo or Sagittarius female may be a concern for you at this time. Try not to put yourself in emotional jeopardy over this now.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romance has become a positive influence in your life again. You are beginning to see what works with the object of your affection and what does not. As a result, everybody benefits from this newfound knowledge. Friday, a financial concern is put to rest once and for all. You’re able to move forward in a positive light. A female family member could get on your last nerve this weekend. Evade and avoid.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — A dark-haired male is ready to back you with a financial or emotional issue. Try to hear him out instead of thinking there is a hidden motive or agenda. You can always call the shots when the final curtain is called. Your superstitious behavior is creating conflict with your progress. It takes motivation and trust to move forward. Grab the brass ring.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — This is a great time to count your blessings and allow another to take the lead. You’re able to receive now instead of constantly “giving.” A fair exchange of love and energy needs to be acknowledged. When you’re able to accept this, life becomes less complicated, putting you in the driver’s seat.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Many social situations will be putting you in front of some very powerful individuals shortly. Try not to hide your head in the sand! Instead, greet these new opportunities with the highest optimism. It’s been a while, but I promise you have not forgotten how to socialize graciously. It appears the grudge you have been toting around has been replaced with eloquence and grace.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You are in a tough situation early on this week as you try to avoid a family problem. Keeping this to yourself will only create bigger problems in the long run. It’s time to come clean with what you know about the health or welfare of another. You cannot take all of this on yourself. You’re going to need help — lots of it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A close call with a dangerous situation has you thinking how lucky you are. As a result, you may begin to move quickly into a more solid situation with a loved one than you were prepared for. Trust that the universe will provide you with everything you need to get by. After the first of the year, there will be more security than you had bargained for.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Decisions, decisions. You’re in high demand now, and all you’re trying to do is figure out what will work best for your long-term sanity. Financial opportunities are off the charts with a positive note. Now would be a great time to look at long-term goals and investments. An unexpected surprise arrives to put your mind at ease. Rest and relaxation are just what the doctor ordered.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Although it may feel as though you have taken one step forward and two steps back, you are still gaining significant ground. You are about to make a major move. Home or career will bring forth new opportunities that will create a foundation for you in the years to come. Try not to self-sabotage your growth and development.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Unexpected news could leave you a bit rattled early this week. Until all of the information has been revealed, try not to go off half-cocked somewhere and sabotage your future success. You have a hidden ally working in your corner. Let everything reveal itself, all in good time.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Time to move on. A credible source may not have given you all of the information you needed to make a change. Try using your own intuition to make your life an easier element to deal with. You have some wonderful resources that you can tap into. Utilize these, and as a result, you will become more successful than you could have ever imagined.
