Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 12-18, 2012
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 12-18, 2012
This Week: A massive healing process is taking place at this time. The new moon in sunny Sagittarius (Dec. 13) will leave all of the dead weight behind once and for all. Lucky breaks and tremendous opportunities will arrive to take advantage of. Hmmm … is there really such a thing as a lucky break, or is it the ability to see what could be an advantageous situation and grab the brass ring? For those of you who are in tune to this extremely positive shift, it is only about embracing how blessed synchronicity is.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Romantic aspects begin to take a turn for the better. Communication seems to move more swiftly, and the ability to get to the heart of the matter is key now. Your financial sector brightens, as an opportunity outside of your current work reveals itself. Try not to second-guess the motives of this new endeavor. Act promptly to get your hat into the ring. By week’s end, you will be delighted with the outcome of your actions.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may feel as though you’ve walked right into a crap storm this week and may not know exactly which way to turn with all the information you have received. The one thing you do not want to do is challenge another who is not ready to listen to your “version” of logic. Understand that boundaries have been set for a reason, and you are not to cross them. Obsessive or compulsive behavior does not suit you or your loved ones around you. Take a step back and allow others to work through their own dilemma. If you don’t, you may find yourself on the outside looking in for good this time.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Once your romantic sector starts to make some sense, the other aspects of your life will be charmed as well. This is a week for clarity. You may need to step up to the plate a bit. It’s all good to go with the Zen thing, but maybe you’re giving another the wrong impression. Clear the air and be truthful about your feelings. Everything after that will be a piece of cake.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Finally, you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, and no, it’s not a freight train! These chronic delays have gotten on your last nerve, and now there is freedom in sight. A business opportunity will present itself soon. Expect this to be a positive influence in your life. This not only increases your cash flow, but it helps you with social contacts as well. It’s about time you made some new connections.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Be very conscious of how another is affecting your attitude. Fear, entitlement and negativity equal a recipe for disaster. To dwell on the past does not get you any further in the future. If you or another is chronically stuck there, it is time to snap out of it! Take a real good look at what you hope to accomplish in life, and move toward that goal. Outside influences have been stifling that energy within you for way too long now.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Protect your loved one from a negative source this week. It appears another may be out to get him or her. In an adamant tone, make it very clear this will not be tolerated. You do not have to choose between one person or another. There is plenty of room in your heart for everybody. Anyone who appears to be putting you in this position needs to be reprimanded.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romance is definitely a major focus this week. Now, it’s time to “take a chance.” Try not to be afraid of the outcome. It’s similar to “the lucky Lotto ticket” in a way — if you don’t play, you won’t win. Business is beginning to improve now. Be patient with your growth and development.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You’re really in a position to count your blessings. After clearing away the negativity from recent months, you can see how much those around you appreciate your gifts and talents. Be proud and accept the new career opportunities that are being presented. Wednesday brings an old account or business connection up to speed. Expansion develops from this encounter.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Take care of your health and yourself first, then worry about the other aspects around you. You have been putting yourself on the back burner while your emotional situations have been taking a toll on you physically. It’s also a good time to consider your appearance. Make a change that you’ve been contemplating in your mind’s eye. This will definitely put a spring in your step.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romance is becoming very clear to you at this time. You do not need to fear someone who has the ability to care for you in a way you have not been familiar with. Unconditional love is such a blessing. Take a chance on the unknown now. You will not be sorry. A project you have been working on receives high honors now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You’re about to go round two with an unruly individual this week. Make sure you are not going down a negative path as others around you may be. Stand firm with your convictions, and don’t “overexplain” yourself. Your personal life has nothing to do with the town of Mayberry. Keep that in mind this week.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — This is a time when you can get to the bottom of some old, unresolved issues. Be very cautious as to how you begin your proceedings. Throw out the “bait,” so to speak, and let another take the hook. Then, you can calmly and diplomatically remove of all of these old, worn-out problems. When all is said and done, you come out without a scratch, and another evolves as a result of it.
