Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 22-28, 2012
August 22, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 22-28, 2012
This Week: Mars moves into Scorpio Aug. 23. Take advantage of this opportunity by harnessing the passion and energy this aspect will provide for you. Aug. 31, we will be under the influence of a Pisces blue moon. The past will definitely be affecting the future. However, this also provides a time to remove unwanted emotions that have done nothing but weigh you down in previous time frames. Enjoy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Prepare for some rest and relaxation now, and don’t feel guilty. You need this break more than anything. Everything else will just “have to wait.” If you’re running on empty, what good will that do you? Past memories of family may be weighing heavily on your mind. Then, out of the blue, an epiphany arrives providing an answer to a long, drawn-out emotional aspect.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A breakthrough with family health or emotional aspects will occur at this time. The power of prayer is evident in your life. Miracles happen every day. A new source of emotional support arrives unexpectedly. Prepare for change with home and property. This is a blessing.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Like clockwork, your personal life has taken a major turn for the better. Finally, the efforts you have put toward this aspect are sinking in. Have you been able to recognize the efforts of another? Validating yourself or a loved one speaks volumes about your long-term success. Getting out and about will definitely help matters … not only your social sector, but your business aspects as well.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Now you may feel like you have a major mess to clean up. Not so fast! Maybe this is not your work to do. By allowing others to pass the buck, you’re going to become very resentful shortly. Delegate your authority and trust that this will be handled effectively. A windfall is arriving shortly. Put this away for a rainy day.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Be very careful you are not being ripped off by another. Talk is cheap, but documents need to be clarified or guarded. You may have spent the last few years trusting the wrong person instead of the right one. Now you will be able see clearly where you need to be.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The topic of travel will be on the table this week regarding you or a loved one. Romantic twists and turns send thrills and chills throughout the week. This time frame provides opportunities to relieve stress and to connect on a deeper level. Midweek, you finally have positive clearance with an old work- or financial-related issue. Windfalls arrive shortly as a result of this.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may find yourself a little more emotional than normal. Expect the universe will protect your loved ones from harm and that everything works out as it should. If material aspects have been on the table lately, pay close attention to where this might be coming from. It’s better to give than to receive.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This may be hard to look at now, but it’s very important to be on guard with a family member’s health or emotional well-being. If you cannot handle it directly, then make sure a qualified individual is aware of this situation. Know your limitations, and try not to feel overwhelmed with it all. Looking the other way is not going to help anyone, especially you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Pay close attention to your dreams and what they may be telling you. Your intuition is dead on at this time. Seeing is believing. Take advantage of this blue moon (Aug. 31) to manifest what you need and desire out of life. A change with residence or work will be on the table shortly. This is an option to be considered, not a forced issue. Changes in your appearance are highlighted.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Advantages through your work environment will be evident this week. Check to see what will be the most effective for your long-term goals, and then go for it. Additional schooling or training may be involved. Your advancement is based on your efforts. Expect the best midweek when a loved one offers you a night on the town.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romantic elements are extremely favorable, and you may be hearing from a love from your past as well. This seems to be just what the doctor ordered to get you out of your recent slump. An invitation to get together should be accepted. Spruce up your wardrobe, or make a change in your appearance. Others will notice.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Long-distance communication will offer an option that is quite appealing. Financially or emotionally, you may be considering a change in scenery. Taking a time out may be just what you need to clear your head. Expand upon your possibilities or brainstorm with another regarding your long-term goals. An issue with a big-ticket item, such as housing, will be resolved shortly.
