Your Horoscope: Week of June 27-July 3, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 27-July 3, 2012
This Week: A deadlock or stalemate will be broken as a result of recent planetary activity. Now is the time to take action and begin to manifest your long-term goals. Try to move through these options gracefully, as opposed to as a bull in a china shop. Karma is working overtime this coming month. Make sure, as a result of your actions, it’s working for you and not against you.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A love from your past will pop up this week, creating some confusion for you. You may not know what to do with this aspect or exactly why this has a recurring theme now. When all is said and done, you will have the knowledge you need to move forward into the present. You may even be grateful you are where you are today.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You feel overworked and underpaid again this week. Take a break. You need your rest, and you need to regroup with family and friends. You will not miss out on any important deals by allowing a little time away from the workforce. In fact, you may find that with a little down time, you will be on top of your game by midweek.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may want to take into consideration the feelings of all parties involved before plowing through anymore outside emotional elements. It’s best not to judge unless you have walked a mile in another man’s moccasins. If you are a Gemini who has been a victim of someone else’s carelessness and lack of consideration to your feelings, it’s time to take a stand. Better yet, close the door completely to this chapter in your life.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may be very bewildered by a past love or friendship resurfacing at this time. Questioning the motives or the unexplained synchronicity will only drive you crazy in the long run. Take a step back and see what evolves from this aspect. At the end of the day, you will find you have learned more about yourself than you expected to out of this. This shifts the way you perceive others permanently.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re taking a lighter approach to a deeper issue at this time, and this is for the best. If you show some compassion toward the feelings of others, you will learn a tremendous amount about yourself in the process. We have no control over the actions and behavior of others. If we can just live in the moment, we will have peace in our hearts.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — An unexpected gift or honor will be bestowed upon you this week. You will be pleasantly surprised at the outcome of this endeavor. You have finally become confident enough to trust the universe’s “bigger plan.” In the grand scheme of things, everyone comes into our lives for a reason. This is a time to celebrate our own life as well as the lives of others.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may have to step in and curb the vicious gossip in your work or your social settings this week. You can make a big difference with kind words of wisdom and support. If you choose to participate in this negative activity, it will only come back to hurt you more. Midweek brings in some new business ventures to your current work environment. Go for it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This is a great time to consider your long-term career path and possibly look for a different work environment. You are starting to make connections that will have lasting effects on your future. Put your best foot forward, and realize all eyes are on you. First impressions sink in deep.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — It’s back to the grindstone with a very productive and financially lucrative week ahead of you. Get plenty of rest, and don’t overindulge in your own personal “bad habits.” You will not want to feel the physical pressure of unhealthy aspects. All eyes are on you, so you want to be at the top of your game. You won’t regret it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Time to make plans for a grand-scale trip or a weekend getaway. You have put in way too much “overtime” not to take a break now. Even if this cannot be in place for the next week or two, committing to something that’s “all about you” is not a bad thing.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romantic elements may feel a bit off early this week. It may be best to just walk wide of this instead of taking a crowbar to it. If you allow another to catch up to you emotionally, all will fall magically into place by week’s end. If you “cop” an attitude, you may end up paying severely for it in the end.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may find yourself missing someone or something dreadfully early on this week. A quiet household or work environment could be intensifying this aspect. Gather with those who love and admire your qualities. A dinner or movie is just the trick to put you back on track.
