Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 5-11, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 5-11, 2012
This Week: With Saturn in Scorpio and Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, these aspects work harmoniously to accomplish all things. These aspects support hard work and productivity with outstanding results. Romantic aspects will also be clarified during this time frame. Expect to see growth and development concerning affairs of the heart as well. Long-winded battles never accomplish anything, they just create more damage. Sometimes it is best to take a step back and reassess everything before making a final decision. After the first of the year, harmony and clarity will arrive.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A person from your past may be reaching out to acknowledge your efforts. Try not to complicate this matter by looking for the hidden motive. There may not be one involved in this situation at all. Take information you receive this week and set it aside for a later date. There will be more to the story by month’s end.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Annoying distractions may cloud your judgment early this week. You can’t please all of the people all of the time, so set your priorities and stick to them. A letter or long-distance phone call brings unexpected news. A silver lining must be attached to this somehow — it just may take a while to reveal the purpose of this situation. A long-overdue payment will arrive at week’s end. Don’t spend it all in one place.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — A burden that has been weighing heavily on your heart will lift this week. Solutions will arrive to clear the air. With this in motion, try not to “hang on” to this old element. Let it go once and for all. This will only get in your way of future success. Midweek, a “secret admirer” reveals himself/herself to you in an unexpected way. Investigate further options with this individual.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — News of a health matter regarding a family member or friend could be very disturbing. Offer emotional or financial support, if at all possible. Travel plans are in the works. Do not allow a nosy female to interrupt your schedule. You don’t have time for all of the “drama” they may want to bring into the mix. Try not to offer any more information than you need to.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Usually, what we bring voice to when we are assessing others ends up being true to form for ourselves. Go within and figure out why you need to project your misdirected thoughts and feelings, and then make them real about someone else. The family dynamic needs strong intervention. Boundaries need to be set with those who are attempting to restrict you from personal growth. But first, you need to identify who that really is. Make sure you’re not fooling yourself in the process.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You’re narrowing down your options to the best-case scenario. So many opportunities have been presented over the past few months, it may have made it difficult to decide which way to go. The signs are all pointing to one favorable aspect now, providing the clarity you need to make the choice. The weekend allows time to cozy up with a loved one and enjoy your home environment.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try not to take the odd behavior of another personally. This has nothing to do with you, and if you “make it about you,” it certainly will turn into an issue in real time. Midweek allows new business or career opportunities to come into view. Take advantage of these aspects, and strike while the iron’s hot. You’re ahead of the game by week’s end.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Make room for those who are trying to find a place in your life. Although you may be apprehensive because of past situations with people, you may end up losing out on a rare opportunity in the months to come. Concerns about the health and welfare of an older female may be weighing on your mind this week. Take the time to pick up the phone and check in.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Your intuition is right on the money this week. Check in with those who are concerning you, and use your soothing, healing approach to calm them down. Inspire those who may be feeling stuck in a lose/lose situation to pull themselves up by their bootstraps. This becomes a contagious element that spreads like wildfire. Your own words put a fire under your feet as well.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Pay close attention to how the influences of others may be affecting your health and welfare. Your energy or personality may slowly, but surely, be affected by this emotional vampire. Midweek, you need to set boundaries with another who does not have the respect for your space you deserve. No need to go on a guilt trip over this, and do not allow another to bully you into complying to his or her needs. Your emotional state is just as valuable.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A chance meeting with a female opens doors for career and new social contacts this week. Follow up with invitations to connect with like minds and positive influences. A phone call from far away provides unexpected news. You may need to travel shortly as a result of this. Stay caught up with mundane tasks so emotional pressure doesn’t get the best of you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You’re just about done with a very long, drawn-out schedule. Now, it’s time to play. Connect with those who bring some humor into your life and positive activity. The love life “dry spell” you’ve been experiencing is about to come to an end. Single Pisces have many options to choose from, while attached Pisces make positive connections with their significant others.
