Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 8-14, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Feb. 8-14, 2012
This Week: After a ferociously passionate full moon in Leo Feb. 7, Venus, the planet of love, leaves Pisces behind and moves into spontaneous and passionate Aries. This creates the “chase is on” mentality emotionally, physically and spiritually regarding affairs of the heart. For some, this can bring in new energy to an old, worn-out love relationship. For others, it may bring into play not necessarily Mr. or Mrs. Right, but an aspect of Mr. or Mrs. Right. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Once you get past all of the red tape this week, things appear to fall into place. You’re able to take some time out for yourself and enjoy the company of others. Some of you may be considering a new vehicle or an additional one. Now that the new models will be coming in, you will be able to find the right fit at the right price. By week’s end, you’re stepping up to the plate regarding romance.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Unfortunate news may arrive this week regarding the health or welfare of another. Open your doors to those who may need emotional support, and clear your schedule to lend a helping hand. Anything that needs to be done will fall into place at a later time. You will feel emotionally fulfilled with your random acts of kindness. By week’s end, a pleasant surprise arrives. What comes around goes around.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — It may be very difficult to understand the stress a close friend or significant other is going through. Make absolutely sure you do not take this personally. Although you feel helpless, this behavior has nothing to do with you. Soon, this will level out for them. Your words of kindness and emotional support will not be overlooked. Take a night out on the town to celebrate. You don’t need an excuse — life is short.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Your intuition is right on target this week. This is the perfect time to make your move. Financial aspects are moving in the right direction; all you need to do is “pick up the checks.” Your friends and family are networking on your behalf. Make sure you are acknowledging their support. Clarity arrives in the romantic sector. Don’t wait for the other shoe to drop.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — A sense of relief arrives this week in the form of financial blessing and many loving remarks. You’re drawing to you a “family” of eclectic individuals who understand your unusual taste and humor. For the first time in a long time, you understand how well you “fit in,” instead of feeling like the misfit. Growth and development arrive within your career sector.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Unexpected news arrives that creates a shock wave through your system this week. In the long run, this allows you the opportunity to grow and consider the feelings of others. Because of your hectic schedule, you have become easily agitated with others. Then, you’ve wondered why friends and family have been avoiding you like the plague. Arrive at gatherings this week with wine and roses in hand, and leave your sword at home.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You’ve been in a fog with worry the last few months, and now it begins to clear. Slowly, but surely, you are getting through your “things-to-do list” and feeling as though you’re on top of the game. Take some time away from home and work, and allow yourself to relax. Your mental health and well-being are top priority this week.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Upsetting news only allows you the opportunity to realize just how short life is. Once you move through this aspect, you will find yourself filled with gratitude and emotionally back on track. As quickly as the negative information arrives, there is a balance of positive information by week’s end. Clarify to each and every individual you know how much you love and care for them. Don’t hold back.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You may have to prepare for battles this week. Choose them carefully and think through your strategy. Do not allow this to consume you. Cut to the quick, and move on. Midweek brings unexpected blessings and surprises from friends and loved ones. You want to be in a position to receive these graciously. In other words, try not to let a negative individual rain on your parade.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Calm down now, and allow the universe to work for you, instead of trying to force a situation to arrive before its time. For example, you wouldn’t want a baby to arrive during the sixth month of pregnancy. There would be trouble and complications, right? Allow yourself to look at this aspect in the same light. Once you’re able to do that, everything works out fine. Good news arrives at week’s end. Travel is indicated.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You may be feeling a little more fearful than normal this week, and for good reason. However, we cannot allow fear to imprison us. Go within and figure out where this is coming from, and then move on. It takes a lot of courage to take a risk, especially with affairs of the heart. The timing is right to allow new opportunities to arrive. Trust that the universe will watch over you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may be second-guessing something you have jumped into recently. The benefits may not balance with the agitation that walks hand-in-hand with it. You would never sell your soul for anything like this before, so why start now?
