Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 5-11, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 5-11, 2011
This Week: The full moon Oct. 11 in Aries brings our attention to romantic elements. If they have been blurry or uncomfortable in the recent past, clarity will arrive on or around this time, providing you with the answers you have been searching for. Unexpected windfalls or upgrades with employment are another area where this full moon can benefit you. Keep your eyes and ears open through October for that “dream job” you may have given up on ever finding. Those who are awake and aware will have the opportunity to grab the brass ring. Take advantage of this progressive time.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — It is obvious to you now that you want to find the right fit in the part of your life that is lacking “something.” However, until recently, you have been unable to see what is right under your nose. A friend has become a personal backer of your hopes, dreams and ambitions. You may not be able to see their influence immediately, but watch for change to take effect in November.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Conversations with an elderly female help you put unresolved issues to rest this month. This chronic uneasiness becomes peaceful within your soul. You extended your perception of the truth. Now, others are able to see your gut instincts were right all along. Try not to say, “I told you so.” Instead, allow everyone else to catch up to your wisdom and consciousness. All is well that ends well.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — This becomes a highly productive time for you financially as well as emotionally. Single Geminis find so many love “options” they may have trouble deciding which way to turn. Attached Geminis find a second honeymoon energy around their significant other at this time. After a long year of trials and tribulations, you find your path set in stone. Finances are taking a turn for the better.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — An old loss becomes disturbing for you again. You may be wondering why this has come back to haunt you now. Allow this to evolve, and push through it. Trying to keep “a lid on it” will only frustrate you more. The quicker you accept it, the sooner this feeling of heaviness lifts. Midweek brings a connection with strong business contacts. Wine and dine this element, and everyone will benefit.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Finances look incredible, and long-term goals appear to be within your reach. Take advantage of ongoing training or schooling. This will allow you to offer the best of both worlds in your business and personal ventures. Romance becomes a prominent part of your life. All of the uncertainties seem to drift away. Your confidence is on top of its game now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — This would be a great time to “slow it down a bit.” You have been going on non-stop for the last few months with a demanding list of things to accomplish in your head. Now that you’ve reached your goals, what has happened to your personal life? It seems to be “missing in action.” Pick up the phone and extend yourself to others. You may be surprised to find friends and loved ones miss your company.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Positive news arrives with a business venture this week. Don’t drop the ball. Instead, take the extra time and energy to follow through with this aspect. You can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and it’s not a train. The weekend provides a romantic getaway and an opportunity to socialize with humorous individuals. It’s time to get out and play a bit. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A solution to a financial problem will arrive. Everything comes through at the 11th hour. Think positive thoughts, and this will manifest properly. A friend may not be telling you everything about a difficult situation or health issue they are experiencing. This would be a good time to listen intently, and gently “crow-bar” the missing pieces out of this person. You may have an answer they are looking for. Travel is definitely highlighted.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romance and finance go hand-in-hand this week in the best possible light. If you need temporary assistance to a problem, this will come through without any negative strings attached. The universe will provide you with solutions, quickly alleviating stress. Time to drag out your suitcase and make some plans for travel. You have put a tremendous amount of energy into your career sector, which will pay off handsomely very soon. Now is the time to invest some energy into your emotional state.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may find your heart is wandering in other directions now. You will need to make some decisions by the first of the year to improve the quality of your life for the better. Being in limbo is beginning to take its toll on you. Your family and friends are willing to support your ideas and convictions. Take advantage of this aspect as it arrives — you won’t be sorry.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Make time out of your busy schedule to “get away,” even if it’s only for a weekend. You need a change of scenery and a fresh perspective with your current life path. Keeping your nose to the grindstone is a wonderful attribute to have, but eventually it creates stagnation and low energy levels. The lack of humor and spontaneity could be getting on your last nerve without you even realizing it. Go get goofy — you won’t regret it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You appear to have a lucky star following you around at this time. Take advantage of this light, and manifest these ideas into reality. A sandy-haired male will have some excellent ideas or a possible offer you can’t refuse. Follow up on important messages that arrive. You’re beginning to carve a new future for yourself now.
