Your Horoscope: Week of July 4-10, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 4-10, 2012
This Week: The full moon July 3 in Capricorn pushes a take-action energy upon us all. Not only that, but it also ignites the Uranus Pluto square, which, honestly, is a much-needed activity. This square blows open revolutionary action and change. You will see this in government big and small, as well as within your own humble abode. However, under the wrong circumstances, it could be quite volatile. So, tread lightly, but purposefully. Mars moves into Libra, which is a good thing, because it removes the “being the poor victim” mentality once and for all. Mercury goes retrograde July 14- Aug. 8 as well. Wow! This is going to be quite a month. Hold on to your hats, people.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may need to remind yourself that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy this week. Set some time aside to reconnect with loved ones. Someone is going through a really difficult time and may not have the energy to reach out for help. If you extend yourself, you will find your actions speak volumes to the wonderful character you are. By week’s end, this feeling of anxiety will lift.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You feel as though you want to completely restructure your life at this time. The problem is, you cannot find a way to the path that would most suit you. Leave all of these unsettled events for a later date. Let’s just let the turbulent planetary vibrations settle into place first. August marks a turning point in your life for the better. You have a clear-cut picture as to where you are headed at that time.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — It’s time to set your priorities straight and get the emotional or physical help you need to improve the quality of your life. Don’t overlook physical ailments, or they could become a more difficult aspect for you down the road. You may need to tell a loved one exactly how you feel or felt. If you can’t do this face-to-face, write them a letter. You can’t carry this around forever.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Your social calendar is getting pretty full this week, and you may feel as though you’re spread pretty thin by week’s end. Honor all of your emotional obligations. The universe will give you the added energy you need to pull this off with style and grace. By week’s end, you are everybody’s hero. You can’t beat that with a stick.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — A calming sense of relief fills your veins early on this week. For no apparent reason, you are beginning to trust the universe’s plan for you for the first time in a long time. With that said, your energy levels begin to balance and pick up where they may have left off quite a while ago. Try not to question why, just go with the flow and utilize this time to the best of your ability.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Romantic elements provide an emotional distraction from major stress this week. Work appears to be overwhelming with difficult glitches to master. At the end of the day, a decent meal with a loving companion has the ability to soothe your worn-out nerves. It’s possible that your work has contributed to a difficult romantic connection. Keep your personal life and your workplace separate.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — This would be an excellent time to acknowledge your partner’s contributions to your life and validate your admiration for them. We get so caught up in the daily struggles of life that we don’t always take a time out to praise those who mean the most to us. A little bit of kindness goes a long way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You are making a great career connection during this month. It will be obvious your past efforts will be rewarded in the near future. Follow up on all leads. Someone is in a position to help you with your long-term goals. Put your best foot forward, and dress to impress. You won’t be disappointed.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — This is not the time to become fearful about finances. Instead, roll up your sleeves and take advantage of last-minute clients or job offers that arrive. A positive financial opportunity will arrive midweek. Take care of your physical self. You cannot afford to be under the weather when this opportunity knocks.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Large gatherings provide you with connections to further your career goals. Make sure you get out and about, putting your best foot forward. All eyes are on you by week’s end. Make yourself available to those who are interested in improving the quality of your life. You won’t be disappointed.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romantic aspects put a spring in your step this week. This is a great time to take extra care of yourself and your appearance. Get to the spa and make some subtle changes that allow you to walk with pride. Is that wardrobe of yours looking a little shabby? Out with the old, and in with the new.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — A large group or organization can benefit from your expertise. The only way you will know this for sure is by putting yourself out there. Networking is key now — following up with all of your connections. You will be in the spotlight by week’s end. Make sure you look your best.
