Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 12-18, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 12-18, 2011
This Week: Old wounds or physical losses could be haunting many of you. Try to turn these emotions around. Allow yourself to remember the good times and the blessed lessons these people provided for us in our lives. Activities at work will tend to be a little distracting this week. It may be difficult to concentrate. Try not to beat yourself up, just do the best you can. By next week, things should flow smoother. Romantic elements reach a high-pitched fever by week’s end. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A meeting with a light-haired female proves to be very favorable financially. The “word of mouth” this activity generates is absolutely great. Midweek puts you in a position to connect with loved ones. You may need to take a short break and get out of the house. You may be running low on humor, and this is a great time to recharge your batteries.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Jealousy may be affecting you, a friend or a family member this week. Try not to get sucked into this disruptive path. Get to the bottom of this instead. You may not necessarily need to call another on the carpet. The less said, the better. However, it’s good to be able to understand exactly where this is coming from and sit tight with the information. A change with home or property is evident.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Because of the good energy you’ve sent out, universal blessings will be coming your way this week. Think back, though. Did you feel you did this out of love or resentment? If you resented your actions or the weakness of another, this could come back to haunt you. The time will come when you may need the help of another, and they may remember your actions well.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Children and pets play a significant role this week with your energy or finances. Try not to worry as a “plan B” will arrive that will be the perfect solution to a problem. If health issues are a concern, you will find all will end up just fine when all is said and done. Take some time out for yourself midweek. You will need it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Expansion with business becomes evident this week. This will not let up. You will find a big change in the way you perceive yourself and others. Your energy is high, and you radiate positive interactions with the powers that be. As a result, your momentum continues to grow. The weekend proves to be a great time for everyone involved.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — This is a time for you to concentrate on your own personal best. Try not to put much emphasis on the actions or goals of others. Everyone sees things differently. You can’t expect those around you to have the same outlook. The weekend is filled with surprises. You will feel as though you have accomplished plenty.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Unusual circumstances arrive regarding legal matters or financial documents. Take things one step at a time, and don’t overlook anything. The end result will prove to be effective. However, while you’re going through this, it may seem like there is no end in sight. Be patient — it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You will find this time to be extremely financially productive. You’re more intuitive than usual, and you’re beginning to see the world is falling into place for you. A get-together will be a memorable one, filled with love and surprises. It is so obvious to you now that you have finally found your niche in life — spiritually, physically and emotionally.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romance has had its share of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, you will see you need a loose rein and a supportive partner. It’s always in extremes for you. You end up with an evasive lover who deeply cares or a control freak who won’t let you go to the bathroom by yourself. Now, it’s time to stand on your own and become who you need to be. After that, everything else will fall into place.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Your trust “issues” have everyone on their last nerve. It’s even beginning to bother you as well. Seeing we really have no control over the thoughts or actions of others, we must try to do the best we can with the lessons the universe provides. Take into consideration all of the blessings that have evolved. Once you can see that clearly, everything else will fall into place.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You’re on a winning streak this week, and all eyes are on you. With that said, take advantage of the learning experiences that are arriving now. You will find yourself coming into a windfall shortly. Make sure you share and share alike with your loved ones.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Make sure you dot all of your I’s and cross all of your T’s early on this week. Not paying close attention to detail could have you retracing your steps at the worst possible time this week. Accidentally overbooking yourself will put you at an unexpected disadvantage. Take time to catch up with old acquaintances. You will be delighted with their insight and humor.
