Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 7-13, 2011
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 7-13, 2011
This Week: A dynamic eclipse in Gemini Dec. 10 will create powerful shifts and change. Deadlocks and stalemates will be broken. Those stuck in the past or those who have handcuffed themselves, for whatever reason, to a bad situation will be removed from it, one way or another. Mercury goes direct on the 13th, so by the time the holidays come around, we should have a little better balance on the turbulent times we have recently experienced. So, with that said, we can expect a positive influence to support our next round of gatherings. What transpires during this next weekend is all for the greater good of long-term goals, even if it may not be exactly what you think you want or need now. Be peaceful with the outcome, whatever it may be.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Once you get past Wednesday, you will find things falling into place quicker than you had anticipated. Delays will only help you to be at the right place at the right time. Try not to be too frustrated; the universe is setting you up for a major positive impact now. Friday, you’re connecting with a person from your past. This will be a very humorous as well as emotional experience.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Some positive news regarding your home environment will be arriving this week. This helps you to see that delays have been in place for a reason, and now everything is falling into place. A past romantic relationship may be on your mind this week. Their behavior confuses you, and you’re not sure what their motive is. Let them do all of the talking. Your answer will surely come out during the course of the conversation.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romance is very positive this week. After a long, drawn-out struggle, you’re able to see the benefits of this relationship and how much it means to you. Outside influences have been a major source of irritation for you. Continue to set boundaries with those who may mean to harm you or your significant other. No one can conquer an undivided force.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You’re definitely at the top of your game this week. You have plenty of choices to improve the quality of your life and romantic sector. Once you’ve learned to listen and not talk, you have found out a tremendous amount of information. This has now been gathered for your benefit. Now, you can move forward with style.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — This positive change in your work environment will improve your social sector, as well as romantic opportunities for all single Leos. Attached Leos find the increase in pay allows you and your certain someone to splurge a little and make this holiday an extra-special one. Maybe a weekend away would be just what the doctor ordered. Try somewhere unfamiliar; this will bring you closer together.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You are going to be in a place where the past will be unexpectedly in your face this week. However, you are so cool, calm and collected that you will never show how startled you are by this encounter. The other one will not be able to hold his or her self together, though. For some reason, this puts you in a very powerful emotional place, a place you deserve to be — confident, strong and desirable.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — If you don’t set some boundaries soon with an unruly friend or family member, you’re going to end up paying the price sooner than you have expected to emotionally. This out-of-control aspect cannot be allowed to affect your loved ones around you. Most of all, it cannot affect you and your health. Set time aside to get away. This is extremely important now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are in a good place to see your long-term goals begin to manifest now. No longer will you chase after foolish or selfish individuals who are not on the same page as you. You find romance unexpectedly this month. You’re ready to move forward without looking back. You have all of the tools you need to make a successful relationship last. Try not to second-guess your intuition.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Whatever your heart’s desire is, you will find it in your own back yard this month. Personal relationships flourish. You feel blessed with friends and family members around you. A new job opportunity awaits those who are looking to improve the quality of their lives. Travel is on the agenda as well. Plans can finally be made that you have long waited for. When you return, you are ready to set the world on fire.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Health and fitness should become a priority this month. You are able to make significant changes in your physical appearance as well as your long-term health goals. As a result of this, others begin to notice the “new you.” This will encourage you to move forward and stay consistent. Work begins to increase this week for the better.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You may have a new location for a home environment or work environment in mind. As the month begins to move along, opportunities are presented to make this dream come true — the perfect fit for you and your emotional space. Midweek brings in old friends and family to catch up. This provides a tremendous amount of insight for you to utilize to its best good.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You might need to clear up an old debt or an old emotional issue this week. Once this is settled, you can move on knowing this is behind you now. Travel plans may be in the works. If you’re able to get away anytime soon, this will more than likely improve your romantic sector as well. A concern about the health of a female friend will be resolved this week for the better.
