Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 5-11, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Sept. 5-11, 2012
This Week: Everyone always complains there is nothing to do in Rockford. How about you take time out to visit the Rick’s Picks (Rick Nielsen from Cheap Trick) exhibit at Burpee Museum. This is a fabulous display of incredible guitars and memorabilia. This is a must-see, in my opinion. Check it out!
The blue moon in Pisces (Aug. 31) could still have some wavering effects on us. Let the shifts and changes that transpired sink in a little bit. It should take a whole lunar cycle for all of the developments to unfold. Financial windfalls arrive from unexpected sources midweek. Be cautious around bodies of water, small or large. Planetary influences could be menacing in that regard.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — An annoying project that has gotten on your last nerve will be completed. You will realize this was worth the pain and anguish as future connections create an abundance of business as a result. Now may be time the to kick back and follow your heart’s desire. The birth of a new creative project will bring much anticipation from the powers that be. The clock ticks in your favor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — The past comes back to annoy the hell out of you early on this week. The test here is to fly above the radar and to not respond to any old habits or behaviors. Family matters may be the root of the problem. You cannot fix a broken or addictive individual, no matter how hard you try. Swim wide of this Titanic, before it sucks you in the undertow. Count your blessings, and surround yourself with those who love and believe in you.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — It’s way too early to start fretting about how you will manage your holiday season with a problem family member. Although he or she may want to start it up now, let it be. Minimal contact is advised. The perfect solution will arrive shortly. Romance always seems to be dramatically affected by this aspect. Your significant other may be able to see the negative effects this creates for you. Out of love and concern, they may boycott this aspect entirely.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — What appeared to be lost as far as a business contract or negotiation magically reappears. Count your blessings, and move forward without attaching any fear to this. You’re entitled to this, and you’re the better candidate to make this work. Try not to say “I told you so,” and just move forward. Less is more. Romance takes a turn for the better.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Now it’s time to decide what you want to do with the rest of your life. Instead of seeing the glass half empty, look at it as half full. You have doors opening for you that will put you in a position to flourish. Try not to look at the loss; instead, look at how the universe works in your favor in mysterious ways. The past has a definite positive effect on the future.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The perfect fit for an item or article that no longer serves you arrives at this time. You will feel relieved to know this situation is finally taken off your hands. The worries and concerns this has caused you have put you in a tailspin for months now, and others have noticed. Friendships get back on track, and it would be best if you didn’t take the old “crowbar” to get to the bottom of things. Let it be.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Although romance has appeared to flatline the last few months, you can expect it to turn around drastically in your favor now. Try to leave the past out of the present situation, and let bygones be bygones. You hear information about another who has been attacked by the same individual who may have been chewing on your rear end the last few months. Don’t pursue this — just put it on the back burner for later.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Finances make sense now and magically fall into place. You can begin to help those around you improve the quality of their life, as well as your own. You’re in a healing position with a deep well to draw from. You’re on the right path, even though it may seem a little blurry now. Relocation may be on the table in the near future. You will be surprised with the emotional support you receive.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You’re able to see the light at the end now with a long-standing financial or legal issue. Good news arrives shortly. A lighter schedule this past week allowed you time to play and balance out emotional issues. Finances are not going to be a problem, so make sure you’re allowing plenty of time as needed for rest and recuperation. Friendships are aligning in a magnificent way, providing the emotional support you crave. October will be a landmark for your success and career sector. Prepare yourself for this aspect now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Changes can be quite scary, and yet they can also create growth. The devil we know sometimes seems to be easier to deal with than the devil we don’t know. As a result, we find ourselves stuck with an inability to move forward. As a result, positive change does not arrive. Take a leap of faith now. Romance, career, home and property are all willing participants in your new adventure. The universe won’t let you down.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — It’s time to make a romantic interest “cough up” their intentions with some clarity. How do you do this without sounding like a Nazi? Stick to the facts, and speak from your heart. You can’t go wrong when you speak the truth. Others may not be aware you have been feeling like a second-class citizen. Once you allow your feelings to be known, you can expect a positive response.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Concerns about your health or a friend/family member’s health need to be dealt with in a timely manner. Changes within your living space will improve these elements quickly and effectively. Friends and family support your decisions and are willing to help you achieve your goals this week. An impromptu gathering will provide you with some interesting information you can use down the road. For now, keep this in your back pocket.
