Your Horoscope: Week of March 7-13, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of March 7-13, 2012
This Week: Do you have questions about your dog’s health or behavior issues? Stop by Dave’s Doggie Den, 107 St. Louis Ave., Rockford, for an open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, March 10. John Sawle from Doctors Choice will be discussing Dog Nutrition at 11 a.m., with holistic options on battling hot spots, scratching, ear infections and other health problems. Refreshments and giveaways will be offered, and Dave Schnidt will also be speaking and available to answer your questions about dog behavior.
Just a friendly reminder, Mercury goes retrograde March 12 and remains there until April 4. Remember to check and double check travel plans, allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B, and back up your computer, too. This planet of travel and communication will run kittywampus for a while. Be prepared.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Restrictions are lifted, and a solid foundation is established. Midweek provides an unexpected source of income for you. This allows you to set some cash aside for a major purchase or treat. Travel will be highlighted again shortly. This may be a reoccurring theme this year. Enjoy!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Romantic relations begin to connect. This “off” feeling has only been a temporary vibration. Inspiring connections with those of like minds open doors for new friendships and creative projects. A friend or loved one from your past may arrive on the scene. This allows you to put an old emotional aspect to rest, once and for all.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Now, you’re in a position to see the other side of the story. Enough evidence has been presented to validate what another has told you in the past. With this, you are able to move forward with an emotional element that has been affected by restrictions in the past. You’re in a position to celebrate this weekend. Get out and enjoy the company of others.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may experience a loss at this time, or you may be in a position to comfort another regarding a loss. In either case, this is a learning experience for you now. You will be discovering a lot about yourself in the process. Romance is fabulous! A change of work or residence is evident.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Romance is creating a positive impact on you now. You’re able to see how powerful and secure this has become. As a result of this, all of your other predicaments become minor and fall into place. Your work aspects begin to make sense to you, and your friendships begin to flourish. Make time to gather with friends and loved ones this week. You will be able to “catch up” on all the latest scoop.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Your social sector begins to open wide again. Emotionally, this is the best medicine for you. This past winter has been a very difficult time for all of us, but it appears to have hit Virgos “extra strength” the past 28 days. Now, you can see light at the end of the tunnel, and you’re completely sure it is not a freight train. Enjoy!
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Although it may feel like you’re having difficulty balancing two options or responsibilities now, you’re actually doing a fine job covering your bases. You will receive some fabulous recognition to verify this shortly. A business meeting can provide you with options you had not considered. Expansion and growth are on the way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are investigating your spiritual beliefs and coming to some wonderful conclusions. You take in every aspect, and then you can tailor it to your own natural fit. Not everything you’re exposed to will have to be followed by the letter. Take what you can use, and throw away the rest. Business and finance accelerate during this time. Take advantage of this abundant time frame.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A solid foundation has been provided for you, and this week takes you back to the grindstone a bit. Try to utilize your time and energy more efficiently now; then, you won’t have the nagging guilt about what you have not accomplished in your day. Physical activity is your best friend. The endorphins released strengthen your ability to perform. Finances are highlighted, and the purchase of a big-ticket item is on the table.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Pay no attention to rumors that may begin to fly around your work environment. Even if there is a partial truth to this matter, avoid allowing this aspect to affect your performance. A new path is arriving. Take your time and move forward into a new light. Watch your tendency to oversell who you are. Actions speak louder than words or titles.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — This is no time to cry over spilled milk. What’s done is done. Instead, try to view this as an opportunity to learn something about yourself. A wish come true is about to present itself. Once you are aware of the entire “big picture,” a welcomed relief will follow.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Children and pets are a focus this week. Enjoy the elements surrounding these encounters. Expansion with family and friendships are evident. All you need to do is accept these expressions of love and light. Gatherings create great contacts for business or work offers. Get out and about.
