Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 24-30, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 24-30, 2012
This Week: Happy Halloween! Happy birthday to my son Austin Guzzardo this week … muuwaaah! Remember, the full moon in Aries Oct. 28 will bring in changes and endings, as well as kicking doors open to new opportunities. This is, once again, a very BOLD full moon, filled with change and surprise. Embrace it … don’t fight it. Mercury goes retrograde for the last time this year starting Nov. 6-26. Be cautious during travel, back up your communication devices, and check and double-check messages. There will be other activity to offset some of this as well in November. I will fill you in as the time approaches.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may be experiencing the telephone tag game with someone whom you desperately need to get ahold of this week. Try not to get too frustrated with this aspect — he or she may be overwhelmed with his or her own personal dramas. Be patient and allow this to fall into place. By week’s end, everything works out for the best.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — An unexpected e-mail or phone call will put you back in the driver’s seat this week. Communication regarding a change of job or residence provides you with plenty of opportunities from which to draw. Make sure you don’t allow yourself to fall asleep at the wheel. Now is the time to act.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romantic aspects feel as though they have been put on the back burner for now. Try not to draw any big conclusions about this or accuse another of looking in a different direction. These worries will only create more problems in the long run. On top of that, a love from your past emerges. Career frustrations are at the bottom of it all. Try a little compassion instead.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Stay on top of your voice-mail and e-mails this week. You have a business aspect that will fall into place if you’re paying attention to detail. A conflict with a family member may have you a little bit on edge this week. Try to smooth the feathers of this individual with kindness and affection. A little bit goes a long way.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Get in the Halloween spirit this week and accept invitations for parties and gatherings. Single Leos have the opportunity to “hook up” with a positive love option, while attached Leos find a little imagination creates excitement on all levels. What appeared to be dead in the water is now alive and well.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Be very aware of the influences of those around you, and make sure they are not rubbing off on other important relationships in your life. Nosing around in other people’s business can create harmful energy. Even though you may not feel this is your intention, the outcome is still the same. Remember, this is best left to the trained professionals. Although you may try, you are not Dr. Phil. Be patient and put your best foot forward.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may feel a little blue the first part of this week — missing friends or family, or just feeling out of the loop. Extend an invitation for lunch or dinner with those who have a humorous outlook on life. You will find this to be the best medicine of all. Forget about your “chores” for a while, and work on amusing yourself. You will be back on track in no time.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It’s back to the grindstone this week, creating a tremendous amount of focus on your career sector. How you perform in the weeks to come will reflect your business outcome for 2013. Put your best foot forward, no matter how worn-out you’re feeling this week. A little effort toward new business provides success in the long run. Expect the unexpected with love this week. You may be pleasantly surprised!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — It’s never too early to align a business venture or a career move. No matter how swamped you feel this week, put your toe in the water of a new business realm. Even though many of these elements will not solidify until after the first of the year, you’re in a great position to make a connection now. The stars are in your favor.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A concern with the health or welfare of a male could have you feeling unsettled this week. You may not know how to approach this delicate situation without causing more alarm. Lend an ear and listen carefully to what is not being said. You will find peace with what you discover as a result of your empathy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Self-employed or self-contracted financial options will be on the table for discussion now. There is balance with this opportunity, and you will feel less fearful concerning cash flow at this time. A personal issue may need to be addressed with a family member now. Tread lightly, and you will receive all of the information you need. Then, you will be in a position to solve a long-standing problem.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You will benefit from additional training or workshops becoming available at this time. You may feel your time and energy will not allow you to take on any more responsibilities. However, the fresh energy that radiates from these options will reflect outward and become contagious to those around you. By week’s end, you will see a shift with co-workers for the better.
