Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 10-16, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 10-16, 2012
This Week: It’s that time again! Friday, Oct. 12, I will be appearing at the Hope and Anchor English Pub, 5040 N. Second St., Loves Park, Ill. Stop by and check out one of my very favorite haunted hangs, and while you’re waiting, don’t forget to try their famous fish and chips … ooh la-la. The new moon in Libra Oct. 15 should be a cakewalk compared to the last few dark moons we’ve experienced. In fact, it opens doors for new opportunities and social aspects that have been lying dormant for quite a while now. Utilize this time to make connections that will benefit you in the long run.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Harmonious interactions with friends and family this week provide positive connections now. Misunderstandings may have been blown out of proportion within the past month. This automatically put everyone on the defense. Like clockwork, this all falls back into place, and everyone seems to be heading in the same direction. You may need to help another out with a pet or child this weekend. This turns out to be a rewarding experience.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A long-awaited spiritual or physical gift arrives this week. This is key for your long-term emotional success and fulfillment. A work offer or opportunity to travel is provided as well. You have to think quickly on your feet to pull this off. However, you will not regret the action once you arrive at your destination. Excitement fills the air at this time, and you’re very aware of your surroundings.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An unexpected loss may have you spinning within yourself early on this week. Be very cautious that you are not holding yourself responsible for the actions of others who have been on a self-destructive path. This is a time for you to count your blessings and to hold friends and loved ones in high regard. Share your feelings, and offer emotional support.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — The past few weeks have been quite a roller coaster ride and you have accomplished a lot. But now you’re just plain exhausted and want to settle in for a bit and bask in your surroundings. This is perfectly fine. Take time out for some peace and quiet. Good food, good wine and a fireplace is all you need to calm your nerves. Oh, and by the way, remember to add your favorite companion into the mix.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Romantic aspects take a turn for the better this week. Any reservations you have had about your love life’s path will be removed. If you’re embarking on a new business venture, expect to be slammed with activity after the first of November. You will begin to feel overwhelmed, so make sure you are getting plenty of rest and nutrition. A call from a past friend or business associate brings good news.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Go easy on those around you who may be over-scheduled or overstressed. If you challenge how their time is spent, you may be biting off more than you can chew. Offer support and lend an ear to someone in need. The weekend provides a much-deserved break from the monotony. A gathering of friends and family becomes a humorous and lighthearted event.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try to understand what you do and do not have control over at this time regarding a troubling situation this week. If you try to take a ball bat to this and force an issue, it will only make matters worse. Once we begin to move into the month of March, you will witness improvements with these specific challenges. Meditate and visualize a peaceful outcome to this aspect. Sunday brings a pleasant surprise.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It may be difficult to curb your enthusiasm this week. So many projects are coming into play that your energy is vibrating on a very high level. Make sure that in the midst of this, you’re not making others a bit nervous. If this is the case, surround yourself with those of like mind, at least for this week. By week’s end, you’re back to a regular schedule, feeling calm and focused.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Finances are in top form as well as a legal issue that begins to resolve itself now. A premonition, dream or gut feeling you’ve been having is validated now. Try not to take this too much to heart. There are many things we have no control over in this world. For you to try to wear the burden of this aspect is counterproductive. Try to see the benefit or the lesson from this situation. If you cannot see it now, it will present itself shortly.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may be beginning a Halloween tradition with a friend or loved one at this time. So much energy is being released for the greater good. The opportunity to “talk it out” is being presented at this time. Your communication skills are in top form. A tremendous amount of emotional growth will be apparent soon.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Expansion with your career and social life is evolving. Pick up the phone and call someone who has been expressing interest in you. Stop being such a chicken about it. If you’re worried about getting hurt and continue to live in a shell, that’s not living. Yes, it is safe to go back into the water. You are drawing to you positive elements with a “pay it forward” mentality. By week’s end, there will be plenty to celebrate. A romantic aspect is becoming very apparent at this time.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may not be in the mood to deal with someone’s “high and mighty” attitude this week and may be in the mood to give them an earful. If you assume they will understand where you’re coming from, think again. Chances are they will not be able to wrap their brain around your philosophy. You will only become more frustrated when your words fall upon deaf ears. Surround yourself with those of like mind and heart this week.
