Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 26, 2012-Jan. 1, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 26, 2012-Jan. 1, 2013
This Week: Happy holidays and happy New Year. I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am about leaving the year 2012 behind for good. This has proven to be one of the most challenging years for me, and I’m certain I do not hold the pattern on that sentiment. However, I can tell you there are positive, harmonious vibrations arriving this new year. Dec. 28’s full moon in loving Cancer should launch the beginning of a healing process on many levels — spiritually, emotionally and physically. Make this New Year’s a memorable one, and never forget to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you each and every day.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Extremely favorable contacts with career are finding their way to you at this time. You’re able to see options that you once thought were not available. You’re in a position to learn a new skill or further develop your craft. This will put you in a highly-charged emotional state — a positive one. As a result, you feel more like yourself again.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Try not to second-guess the emotional behavior of a loved one this week. This happens to be a result of their own personal issues, and you’re off base as to what the problem really is. By week’s end, this should be in check. Try not to revisit this if you can help it for now. In other words, minding your own business would be strongly advised. Your social calendar is running full of positive activities. It’s time you step out and participate in life.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Be cautious that you do not get caught up in old family drama this week. It is obvious you are caught in the middle of something, possibly the emotions of some highly-charged individuals competing for your attention. Take the high road and do not placate one with severe emotional troubles. Walk wide of negative communication this week, and don’t promote it.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may need to go above and beyond the call of duty this week with family or friends. There has been loss or heartache, and you’re put in the position of trying to fix it all. Do the best you can do, but don’t overextend yourself as your physical body may become worn down as a result. Make sure you are taking care of yourself as well as others. Good news arrives with the career this week.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You have recently started moving around in different circles or social situations, and now the “uneasiness” of this is beginning to wear off. You’re discovering you have made this fit for a reason, and there is plenty to learn from these new situations. This is becoming comfortable and productive. As a result, you’re able to look at your love life with new eyes now. You’ve discovered you can step up to the plate and make this work.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The next time you choose to call somebody on the carpet for his or her actions, make sure you have gathered all of the information first. You have been the victim of many lies in the recent past as someone frantically tries to cover up their addictive behavior. You take so much pride in your intuition, but this time you may be wrong. Mimic Libra and weigh the scales of balance between truth and love. Watch your judgment calls.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romance is accentuated this week. As the sun moves into the complementary sign of Capricorn, you feel as though you’re able to leap tall buildings with a single bound. All eyes are on you at this time. Present yourself in the best possible light. You won’t regret it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Avoid cult-like groups or religious fanatics at this time. Someone may be trying to influence you or a family member toward his or her own unhealthy mindset. This could even invoke some fear in those around you or yourself. Stay true to your beliefs, and all will go well. Pay close attention to detail with legal documents or paperwork. You may find some hidden money in the process.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Finances break serious ground for you this week, and you’re able to look at your long-term goals within a positive light. You are proud of your accomplishments and your loved ones now more than ever. Even though you needed to move away from the darker energies of last week with some resistance, now is the time to start fresh with your long-term goals, dreams and ambitions.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romance may have you feeling extremely compulsive this week. Try to keep yourself collected as you move through old elements or past love connections. Questioning your current relationship would not be the best idea. You are exactly where you are supposed to be in this time of your life. A healing process will be working through your system through the month of January. When all is said and done, your love life will improve for the better.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Your social circle is moving in a brand-new direction. All of the contacts you are making now will prove to be long-lasting connections in the future. Take extra care when traveling this week — avoid tickets, traffic and fender-benders. Midweek brings an exceptional expansion with business and finance.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You’re still a bit confused as to recent communication with another and not quite sure how to navigate around it. Perhaps the very same thing is happening to them as well. Try not to make too much out of it. Instead, allow this to unfold within its own time. Things look better than you realize. Like a fine bottle of wine, let it breathe a bit before consuming.
