Your Horoscope: Week of Jan. 16-22, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Jan. 16-22, 2013
This Week: The full-wolf moon arrives Jan. 26 in the sign of Leo. This allows us time to focus on creative ventures, hobbies and, most importantly, true love. Many of us will feel the need to celebrate or make connections with long-lost friends and loved ones. Expect this to be a time of gratitude. Soon after, Jupiter, the planet of luck and prosperity, goes direct in Gemini Jan. 30. Although the sun and Saturn seem to be arguing off to the sidelines, this will provide a time of inner reflection and support new ventures for the coming months. Wherever Jupiter goes, good luck is soon to follow. Give it time to benefit your personal corner of the world.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Stay out of annoying office gossip early this week. This appears to escalate by week’s end, creating all kinds of havoc within the workplace. If you play the “see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil” mentality, you will find yourself on top of the world when all is said and done. Someone will be reprimanded for all of this nonsense, so with that said, make sure it is not you.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — This is the time for you to start thinking about your own life. Stop placing yourself neck deep in dramatic family affairs. Romantic aspects are on the forefront. You’re at the top of your game, and all eyes are on you. Put your best foot forward. Mixing business and romantic pleasure will be easy midweek. By week’s end, you will have the perfect solution to a long-standing problem.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Shocking news or a heartbreaking situation has made you aware of how short life is. This may be the time when others call upon you for assistance. Consider all of the factors, then roll up your sleeves and go for it. You have nothing to lose. However, if you are looking for karmic brownie points, you have everything to gain.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may be called upon to get involved in humanitarian activities this week. We all know how hard it is to keep up with pressing schedules and overbooked obligations. However, take a moment to join a worthy cause. This will fill the emotional gap you have been feeling as of late. This will also put you in a position to form new bonds with those of like mind. Go for it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your lackluster energy is noticeable to those within your circle. It’s possible you may need a check up from the neck up to clarify what is really eating you at this point. The focus may be off the tracks, while a deeper issue is the culprit. Although we may all consider the fact that the past should remain in the past, sometimes we need to revisit it to understand the present.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You may feel some unwanted anxiety arriving for no apparent reason and is taking over your life. Take a step backward and attempt to figure out exactly when and why this arrived when it did. You will find that about a month ago, significant exchanges of energy with a member from your past planted the seeds for this aspect to erupt. As a result, you appear off balance. By week’s end, you will find the tools to rid yourself of this pressure. You will be all the wiser for it.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try not to throw the baby out with the bathwater this week. Although we may need a stronger foundation with another than appears to be available at the present, tossing them to the side like an old toy will not help the current situation heal. There is only so much we can expect out of another human being. The peace, security and love we crave needs to come from within first.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An opportunity for employment will arrive during this time, with all the extra bells and whistles. This can be the perfect fit for you and your busy lifestyle. Your social calendar begins to fill up, and a health issue that has been concerning you will diminish during this time. It may be time to step up and help another.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — There may be concerns of the health or welfare of another. Do your best to offer emotional support or comfort where needed. News of shifts and changes within your circle of friends may hit your heart chakra deep this week. See what you can do to help mend situations. Do not antagonize or add fuel to the fire.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A sudden urge to practice your flight-mode mentality within your home or friendship sectors may have you second-guessing your own sanity. You have been more than patient with the lack of effort on their part. It’s time to move on. Keep your feet planted firmly on the ground, and focus on your business now. This is a great week to bring in the “big bucks” as well as allow yourself plenty of time to enjoy pets and hobbies. Your long-term financial goals are on the rise.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Financial matters are on the forefront, and you are coming into a time when money will not be an issue for you shortly. Look around and pay very close attention to signs that are pointing you in the right direction to receive prosperity. A dark-haired male may have an offer for you that you just cannot resist. Go for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — People from your past continue to crawl out of the woodwork. Some connections seem extremely beneficial, while others remind you just how much you really needed to move forward in life. These aspects allow you to reflect on how much emotional growth you have been through during the past few years. An agitating family situation will be put to rest shortly. You are able to clear the air and get to the bottom of a long-standing problem.
