Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 21-27, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Sept. 21-27, 2011
This Week: This new moon (Sept. 27) in Libra means difficult decisions will need to be made regarding long-term goals, relationships or ideals. With Libra always vacillating, weighing and balancing everything out, it could be difficult to decide on the right path to follow. If you do not make a focused decision, the universe will make it for you, and it may not be the one you would prefer. This is a great time to remove unwanted clutter or emotional issues from your life. Slowly, but surely, clean it all away. In the end, you will feel on top of the world.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may be experiencing the telephone tag game with someone whom you desperately need to get ahold of this week. Try not to get too frustrated with this aspect. He or she may be overwhelmed with his or her own personal dramas. Be patient, and allow this to fall into place. By week’s end, everything works out for the best.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Romantic aspects feel as though they have been put on the back burner. Try not to draw any big conclusions over this or accuse another of looking in a different direction. These worries will only create more problems in the long run. Career frustrations are at the bottom of it all. Try a little compassion instead.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Stay on top of your voice mail and e-mails this week. You have a business aspect that will fall into place at this time, if you’re paying attention to detail. A conflict with a family member may have you a little bit on edge this week. Try to smooth the feathers of this individual with kindness and affection. A little bit goes a long way.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Get in an early Halloween spirit this week, and accept invitations for parties and gatherings. Single Cancers have the opportunity to “hook up” with a positive love option, while attached Cancers find a little imagination creates excitement on all levels. What appeared to be dead in the water is now alive and well.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Romance is a wonderful way to escape the daily grind this week. You will find those around you very receptive to your flirtatious energy as well as your humor. Soon, you will make a connection for the “dream job” you’ve been wishing for. Be patient, and put your best foot forward.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You may feel a little blue the first part of this week. Missing friends or family, or just feeling out of the loop. Extend an invitation for lunch or dinner with those who have a humorous outlook on life. You will find this to be the best medicine of all. Forget about your “chores” for a while, and work on amusing yourself. You will be back on track in no time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — It’s back to the grindstone this week, creating a tremendous amount of focus on your career sector. How you perform in the weeks to come will reflect your business outcome for 2011. Put your best foot forward, no matter how worn out you’re feeling this week. A little effort toward new business provides success in the long run. Expect the unexpected with love this week. You may be pleasantly surprised!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It’s never too early to align a business venture or a career move. No matter how swamped you feel this week, put your toe in the water of a new business realm. Even though many of these elements will not solidify until after the first of the year, you’re in a great position to make a connection now. The stars are in your favor.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A concern with the health or welfare of a female could have you feeling unsettled this week. You may not know how to approach this delicate situation without causing more alarm. Lend an ear, and listen carefully to what is not being said. You will find peace with what you discover as a result of your empathy.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Self-employed or self-contracted financial options will be on the table for discussion. There is balance with this opportunity, and you will feel less fearful concerning cash flow. A personal issue may need to be addressed with a family member. Tread lightly, and you will receive all of the information you need. Then, you will be in a position to solve a long-standing problem.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You will benefit from additional training or workshops becoming available. You may feel your time and energy will not allow you to take on any more responsibilities. However, the fresh energy you receive from these options will radiate outward and become contagious to those around you. By week’s end, you will see a shift with co-workers for the better.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Legal documents may become a bit of a pain this week before they are resolved. Try not to lose your cool, and push forward with confidence. If you appear to be outstanding, others will notice and back you with this frustrating element. Once you put this on the table, the rest will be resolved with time.
