Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 27-March 5, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Feb. 27-March 5, 2013
This Week: Still sitting deep in the arms of Mercury retrograde, I’m certain many of you have noticed the rise in traffic accidents and communication. Try to move through this time with a safe and proactive approach. This planetary aspect will come to an end March 17. Remember, it leaves with the same flurry it arrives with. This past full moon Feb. 25 with Mercury retrograde and Venus both stuck in Pisces could bring some misconceived or delusional love connections within your realm. Be realistic about who and what the intention of another is, and keep your eyes open. If you’re not really being honest with yourself, you could be setting yourself up for heartache. This will all pass very quickly, and romance will get back on track. But pay very close attention to what happened on or around that day.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Finances start to look up when a perfect work opportunity crosses your path during the next few weeks. News from far away may have you a bit on edge early on this week. Try not to take it out on those who are near and dear to you at this time. This may not come to pass as expected, so it will do you no good to worry yourself into anemia over what may or may not be. Developing a new hobby or skill allows you to increase your social contacts.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You have developed a strong compassion for a loved one now. You’ve realized that pushing and shoving to get your point across does not work. Lead by example, and others will follow in your footsteps. You’re in the limelight this week with co-workers and the powers that be. You’ve obtained your goals at this time.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Take a step back and try not to react so harshly to a temporary behavior problem of another. This may not have anything to do with you at all. If you react on a personal level without knowing the “whole story,” regrets will follow. A new client or business referral will open doors for future success. This will be a very productive year.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — It’s time to focus on your long-term dreams, goals and desires this week. Pay very close attention to those who are coming into the picture at this time. The universe is working in very mysterious ways. You’re making connections that will improve the quality of your life substantially. A perfect mix of work and play arrives this week. Take advantage of this.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — An answer to a prayer is arriving now. This will take a tremendous weight off your shoulders in the months to come. It really is time to start socializing with others. You’ve had a little taste for it, and now it’s becoming contagious. It doesn’t always have to be a grandiose plan. Sometimes a donut and a cup of coffee in the right company will do the trick.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Your intuition is dead on this week, and you’re not about to step on a land mine again. Information you’re about to receive from an older female will prove to be very important in the weeks to come. Keep this under your hat for now, until the right opportunity presents itself. Then, “seize the day.”
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may need to make your intentions clear to a friend or loved one this week. You tend to “go within” to sort out your path, and sometimes that leaves others wondering where they stand. You will be receiving good news from a distance at this time. Your long-term goals are solidifying.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Unexpected travel or unexpected company may be arriving this week. Consider yourself forewarned, and take some time out to get things in order, leaving you plenty of time to deal with out-of-the-blue situations and circumstances. This week could be a bit of an emotional roller coaster; take care of yourself first and foremost.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You have an unbelievable lucky streak arriving at this time. An old contract or debt is about to be completed in your favor. Finance and romance seem to go hand-in-hand this month. The changes you make will improve the quality of your life tenfold. Take time out to overindulge your significant other this week — a worthwhile emotional investment.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Travel plans may have you a bit on edge this week. Pay close attention to what another may not be saying, and read between the lines. Go with your gut, and you will do the right thing. The health of a pet or child could have you very concerned. Take action before this gets out of control.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You will be in the position to clear up an old debt, either financially or emotionally. Just move through it and try not to dwell on this too much. Once this is behind you, the universe will make up for lost time, space and energy. You will find an unexpected energy source from which to draw. A secret admirer will come forward and make their intentions known.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Romantic elements are on the forefront this week. You may be in a position to connect with a love from your past. This could bring back all kinds of sensitive emotions, some of them could be quite confusing. Try to learn what you can from all of these circumstances, and allow this to be a positive experience. You may be surprised at the outcome.
