Your Horoscope: Week of April 4-10, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 4-10, 2012
This Week: Hip hip hooray! Mercury retrograde is finally over (April 4) and a sensual full moon in Libra arrives April 6. If we can just get through this week without having a major collision physically, emotionally or spiritually, we will be on steady ground for a while now. Not a moment too soon, I might add. I think everyone was on their last emotional thread this past month of March, myself included. Remember, the pain and frustrations we survive only make us stronger in the long run.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You’re feeling more like yourself as the week begins. Energy levels begin to shift, and you’re accomplishing more now than you have for most of the winter months. Look through items and articles that are no longer useful to you and pass them along to those in need. This will create a shift with your financial aspects for the better. It is time to get together with friends and family members and catch up on the scoop. New creative influences emerge from this activity.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Legal documents and financial reconstruction begins at this time. You breathe a sigh of relief as these aspects begin to fall into place. You have been so stressed out with financial concerns you may have put a strain on your health. Try to reconnect with a healthy diet and some light exercise. You will notice the emotional improvements that will follow with these actions. If you don’t take care of you , nobody else will, either.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Removing bad habits can be a little more challenging for “the twins” to deal with than some of the other signs. However , this may be a really good time to take a look in the mirror and honestly ask yourself what areas could use some improvement. Is overindulgent behavior getting the best of you? Or, possibly creating restrictions with your goals? Now is a fabulous time to rid yourself of bad habits once and for all. As your energy levels begin to lift, you will wonder what took you so long to get in sync. Celebrate a loved one’s accomplishments this weekend.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Love options are laid out right in front of you, and you can’t seem to see the forest through the trees. Try not to be so quick to throw the baby out with the bathwater now. Someone whom you have known for a while steps up and says they care. Stop running from love and friendship, and jump into this feet first. There is no reason to sit by the side of the pool and put your pinky toe in. The water is not as cold as you think it is.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You receive a lucky break or a lead this week regarding your long-term goals. Follow up, and put your best foot forward. You’re a shining star, and all eyes are on you. Changes in your appearance will not go unnoticed. Even though recent challenges may have you a little weak in the knees, fake it until you make it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You are filled with energy, and your sense of humor is coming back with a vengeance. Loved ones begin to see the “old you” and appear to want to spend more time with your positive influences. Opportunities for love will be arriving shortly. Concentrate on your appearance. When you look good, you feel good as well.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — A close call with a friend or loved one’s health may have you feeling uneasy for the first part of this week. As you move through this, you will be able to recognize how important this person has become to you. Meantime, you’re able to focus on your own health and mortality. Exciting new business opportunities begin to pour in this week. These aspects enable you to mix business with pleasure.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You finally feel like crawling out of the cave you have built for yourself this winter and moving around with the human race again. Even though this was a difficult winter, you are emerging with a new sense of self and knowledge of who you are and what you want out of life. This influence allowed for a tremendous amount of growth. Take your newfound knowledge and apply it to your daily activities. You may be surprised at your outcome.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You may have overwhelming guilt regarding how you will manage to handle the addictive behavior another continues to expose you to. The lack of confidence and self-destruction with this individual is extremely confusing to you. Unfortunately, your positive aspects are not contagious. You can’t make somebody drink out of your glass and expect miracles to happen. With that said, concentrate on your own goals, dreams and ambitions. This is a great time to launch a creative project and get it going. Do not fear the outcome; let nature take its course.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You are “wired for sound” and are getting a lot of things accomplished. This newfound energy creates a feeling of relief within many areas of your life. Finances begin to improve, and you’re able to set some money aside for a rainy day. Resist the temptation to splurge now. Wait until mid-June to make a major purchase. You will find a better deal and a better fit for your needs.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Now that all of your legal mumbo jumbo is in place, it may be time to look at your next venture with some enthusiasm. Check out different locations for home, work or business. A need for your services may arise in a fresh new area, or a new job opportunity can arrive outside of your comfort zone. Look at all of your options, then make your move. You will be pleasantly surprised at your outcome.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Romance seems to be getting quite complicated this week. Try not to stir up anymore drama than need be. Someone else could overreact to your behavior now, so keep a low profile. Next week, your intentions are received with crystal clarity. Then, you would be in a better place to make your move.
