Your Horoscope: Week of April 3-9, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 3-9, 2013
This Week: Romantic elements can be confusing and family matters may be putting many of you through the test of perseverance. Maybe now would be the best time to drop the weapons and avoid constant badgering or hashing of an old, worn-out subject altogether. If another isn’t ready to improve the quality of their life, you really can’t force them to do so. This is a great time to focus on the removal of clutter and crap that is taking up space in your home. Remember, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure, so donate what you can.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Tempers may flare early on this week, so try to keep a level head about you now. Fly under the radar with such activity, especially at work, keeping your nose to the grindstone and avoiding conflicts. You will get your chance to air your views soon enough. Don’t be a tattletale this week.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A romantic situation may have you spinning midweek. Your sensitive nature could be put to the test by another or a family member’s distress. Avoid trying to fix this aspect until you have all of the facts before you. There may have been a “telephone game” of miscommunication going on at this time. By week’s end, you have all of the information you need to clear the air properly.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Try to put together a weekend away with friends or your significant other this month if you don’t have time for a full-blown vacation. You need time to revitalize yourself emotionally, spiritually and physically. Stress has been a prominent factor in the way you have been interacting with others. A little rest and relaxation will put you back on track.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may feel as though someone is trying to sabotage your relationships with others this week. Try not to feed into this. Instead, hold your head up high, and be proud of your accomplishments, no matter how great or how small they may feel to you now. Let go of the past so there is room for the future. You are entitled to a happy, prosperous life.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — If exchanging energy with others feels like a trip to the loony bin this week, you’re not alone. You may be more sensitive to the vibrations of those around you than normal. With this comes a tremendous amount of insight and clarity. Most of the time, the actions of others have nothing to do with you, so stop thinking they do. You will learn how to interact with a difficult situation correctly at this time. Flying off the handle doesn’t work. With that comes peace.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You cannot carry another’s dead weight any further than you have now, or you’re going to end up suffering physically yourself. Cut the ties, and move on. Protect your inner circle from this insanity. The theme this week is not to go down with the Titanic. That goes for you most of all, Virgo. I do not want your loved ones to suffer as a result of your generous heart.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Contact an old friend and make some time to break bread this week. You will be filled with stories that amuse someone who may be a bit down in the dumps. You can be the class clown when you want to be. However, you do hold a tremendous amount of insight for another as well. Your truth and your knowledge hold the key to another’s salvation.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Romance and work elements highlight this unusual week. Out of the blue, an unexpected idea or offer of work arrives, placing you at the right place at the right time. Romance flourishes from this exciting new activity. All appears to be on track, at least for you this week, Scorpio. Enjoy!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romance could confuse you this week. You may feel hot and cold, then cold and hot. Whatever this is, try not to overreact to it at this time. You will have a clearer cut view of your long-term goals after the 10th of this month, when the new moon provides you with clarity. Until then, work activities are in full force, bringing home the bacon for you!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Paranormal activity could be obvious in your home or work environment this week. Meditate and see if you can figure out what this spiritual presence needs from you. If you pay close attention to all of the signs, you will be able to put the puzzle pieces together. It appears as though someone from the other side is trying to help you. Thank them for their support in your prayers.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You are expanding within your work environment, and it is being noticed by the powers that be this week. You will see growth in a positive direction, regardless of what the economy is crying about. Keeping the faith and a fast-moving pace puts you a cut above the rest.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Your intuition is still playing a very strong role in how you are moving around your current circle. If you just listen instead of talking, you can read what is being said between the lines. You have the solution to a long-standing problem. By week’s end, finances fall magically into place.
