Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 19-25, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 19-25, 2011
This Week: It’s that time of year again when things that go bump in the night are quite active. Join me at one of my favorite haunted hangs, The Hope and Anchor English Pub, 5040 N. Second St., Loves Park. I will be doing readings there beginning at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 21. Hope and Anchor’s food is great. Be there, or be square.
As the sun moves into sexy Scorpio, we will all feel a little more emotional and sensitive to these vibrations. You might as well enjoy them as opposed to fighting these healthy dynamics. The veil between life and death is very thin now as well. Many of you may find yourselves receiving visits from the other side during dream time, bringing messages of love and peace. I wish my son, Austin Guzzardo, the happiest birthday ever, and I wish all of you a safe and happy Halloween.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Romance may need to be looked at with a little more scrutiny. You may be missing a very important point or overlooking someone who has been very prominent in your life. Love finds its way when the timing of things is in perfect order. This is becoming a time when things are very clear. Open your heart to opportunities presented now.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Finances may be a little tight at the beginning of the week, but as this week unfolds, you will see the pressure release, and you can see light at the end of the tunnel. You may have your eye on a specific item that you have been considering purchasing for quite some time now. You will see this will become a reality by year’s end. We must always remember to pay ourselves for our hard work and effort. The rest always falls into place.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — This week may start off trying your patience with the actions of others. Try to consider the fact that others are only trying to help and don’t really mean to interfere with your progress. Some loved ones may be concerned with your health and may push an issue of wellness. You’ve been burning the candle at both ends, and it’s time to take care of your needs as well. Listen closely to the observations of others — they may be dead on.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You are about to experience a huge breakthrough with a large client or a possible employment option. Keep your eyes and ears open. Positive influences behind the scenes are creating a major turning point in the weeks to come. This will also open doors for new social connections. Those of like mind want to get to know you better.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Try not to second-guess your choices this week. You are in a position to get the help you need with mind, body and spirit. You will become more consciously aware of how you have sabotaged yourself in the past, and now you’re coming into a brand-new time frame. Friends and loved ones offer support. Take time out to socialize. You will learn new things about yourself as well as those around you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Time to go to blows with someone whom you have been avoiding for quite some time. The more you avoid this, the more complicated this becomes, the more outside influences get involved, and the more nonsense it creates. Call a mud wrestling match if you have to, but get it out on the table now. You may be pleasantly surprised to find the outcome is much more productive and healing than you imagined it could be.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Is it time for a checkup from the neck up? You are definitely questioning the behavior of those around you lately, and for good reason. Too many unresolved issues have been on the table. You may be put in a place where you have to evaluate your role in this mess as well. If you are unable to do this, nothing will heal. As a result of that, you will continue to feel alone. You deserve more than that.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Happy birthday to you all. You’re up for some positive changes during your birthday month. New people, places and faces promote a higher energy level within. Let go of dead-end situations from your past. They only stand in your way of emotional growth. Romance looks very promising. You’re beginning to develop relations that will stand the test of time.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Finances take a turn for the better. An upgrade in pay or an extremely powerful client will enter the scene shortly, providing you with expansion and growth. If you have activated a savings plan recently, you can feel confident enough to put a little bit more into your investments without feeling pinched. An unexpected surprise midweek leaves you feeling extremely loved and cherished.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — It’s time to make a decision regarding your home or your personal life. Planetary aspects have shifted, and the mixed-matched feelings you’ve experienced over the past three weeks are gone. Slowly, but surely, you develop a game plan. Be confident. After that, there is no looking back.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Positive outlay of cash provides fabulous returns. Investing in yourself is your best action. You will see the results of your hard work and effort shortly. Until then, manifest your hopes, dreams and ambitions to the reality stage in your mind’s eye. Romance throws you a humorous curve at week’s end. Enjoy!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Walk wide of those negative individuals who continue to pick the scabs of others. Surround yourself with happy thoughts and low-maintenance beings. Midweek allows time to catch up with friends and loved ones. The tension that was in the air weeks prior to this will dissolve in the days to come.
