Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 26-Oct. 2, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Sept. 26-Oct. 2, 2012
This Week: The full moon in Aries Sept. 29 ushers in powerful shifts and changes. This influence takes no prisoners. However, it will break open any stagnation that has been leaving many of you in a quandary. Final endings or new beginnings will emerge from all the turbulence. For some of you, it may not appear to be what you initially wished for, but in the grand scheme of things, it will be what works best for you in the end. Many times, influences that we are not aware of at the time are ultimately helping us toward our next powerful lesson and connections. Mercury and Saturn move into Scorpio Oct. 5. Saturn, the OCD task master, will influence situations that need to be revisited or a complete “do over.” Mars moves into Sagittarius Oct. 6. This element can create a “play rough” scenario in the beginning, as well as push strong opinions onto others. Make sure you use this powerful, playful energy to get things done and move unwanted energy through your system. Try not to get into a heated debate with anyone. You will regret it later if you don’t bite your tongue.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Information you receive early on this week could be somewhat troubling. Wait until you gather all of the facts before launching a reaction — there is another side to the story yet to come. You may need to complete some business you have been dreading. When all is said and done, you will find you have avoided this for no apparent reason. In fact, this will end up being a blessing in disguise. Romance is on the forefront this week.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may need to stay out of a clash with friends or family members for now, even if someone is trying to suck you into it. You will need to take a stand and set some uncomfortable boundaries. Someone may want to “control you” or keep you all to themselves. You are not the type of person who can tolerate this very well. When all is said and done, you will still have your integrity intact.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — The universe won’t allow you to shove down or walk wide of your feelings or responsibilities any longer. This may be the best time to take ownership with your contribution of the demise of a friendship or a romantic aspect. The longer you ignore it, the louder it will become. Rewards or awards will bless you during this time. Embrace these accolades with pride.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Unexpected gifts with career and business are highlighted this week. You will find the competition cannot match up to what you can offer now. This is a time to celebrate. Others have been pulling for you “behind the scenes.” Now, it’s your time to shine! A new household item or vehicle may be on the horizon for you, putting a spring in your step. This is a choice, not a forced issue.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — This is a wonderful time to embrace the efforts and qualities in all of your loved ones instead of the one who is constantly demanding it out of you. A Taurus woman may be trying to cause problems for you, and you need to see this clearly, instead of burying your head in the sand over it. Things will only get worse if you don’t stand up for yourself now. Anyone who is trying to remove yourself from others can’t be all that healthy for you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — An unexpected work offer provides you with unlimited income, but your personal life may be a bit tumultuous early on this week. Try to understand that others around you may have “no control” over situations that are arriving. You cannot bully your way through an unexpected situation, and if you try, there may be no turning back at the end of the day. Instead, try a little finesse … a little bit of that goes a long way.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try to keep yourself calm when shocking, unexpected news arrives at week’s end as a result of this full moon in Aries. Understand that the universe is protecting you and that all will turn out for the better in the end. You may be in a position where you need to help another in need. Don’t even question your abilities at this time — you’re able to pull this off now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This week will be one for the record books when surprise, suspense and unexpected satisfaction arrive out of the blue. Your loved ones gather around to show support for your gifts and talents as well as your long-term goals. Romance is absolutely fabulous now. You have options or situations from which to choose.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — The actions of this pending full moon Sept. 29 in Aries ushers in unexpected romance, which becomes your main priority. Work has you on “your last nerve,” and now it’s time to play just as rough and hard. Allow plenty of time to get from point A to point B. You don’t need a mishap.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Good news arrives with financial elements as you get ready to make a major change with your home or work environment now. Take a leap of faith, and do not fear the outcome. For all of those involved in your life, this will be a win/win situation. Trust that the universe has a plan for you — a bigger plan than you can envision right now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Positive people from your past become a focal point during this next lunar cycle. News from family or a close friend could have you a bit on edge early on this week. Try not to “bite off more than you can chew.” Offer emotional support, but at the same time, do not allow this to overwhelm you in any way, shape or form. You will have your hands full with business obligations at this time. Do not overdo.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — An unexpected trip in the near future can provide you with some clarity with a long-standing emotional problem. You have weighed and balanced out all of your options, and you cannot see the forest through the trees. Maybe you are not supposed to. All of the information you need has not come to light quite yet. Saturday provides you with more information to complete the task at hand. With that said, go for the gusto!
