Your Horoscope: Week of April 24-30, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 24-30, 2013
This Week: The new moon in Taurus (May 9 eclipse) allows us to stay on course. Slow and steady always wins the race. The first half of this month provides us with the strength and focus to slowly sift through mundane tasks and accomplish them one by one. What appeared to be overwhelming before this time frame finally begins to fall into place. At the end of this month, all energies switch when the full-moon eclipse in Sagittarius (May 25) lightens our load with positive energy. This will be the time to celebrate accomplishments.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Affairs of the heart may have you feeling extremely compulsive this week. The past appears to be haunting the present. Questioning your current relationship, or lack of, 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 until May 9. When all is said and done, your love life will improve for the better.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Friends and family may be in need of a little space this week. A female may be in an emotional crisis. You may be asked to change your style of communication with another, or find a solution to a long-standing problem. With time and effort, you can easily sort these matters out. Let loved ones know they have your love and support.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Your personal life begins to shift for the better at this time. This aspect has been off center for at least two years. Recently, you have figured out how to fix a long-standing problem. Your random acts of kindness do not go unnoticed; they allow love to flow freely in a new direction. Finances become the center of attention midweek when you “hit the big one” in some way, shape or form.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Good news arrives regarding your financial status. May brings in powerful financial windfalls and emotional balance. A new job option or client arrives during this lunar cycle. Help from unexpected sources arrives this week. You will be able to keep your home in check as well as your social calendar full. This is a time to celebrate.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Favorable news arrives midweek regarding a career opportunity or financial windfall. Keep your finger on the pulse of the community. A referral from a gifted friend proves to be favorable toward your long-term goals. Time to set some stronger boundaries with nosy individuals who have invaded your personal space. By week’s end, you will have numerous reasons to celebrate.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You’re overwhelmed with emotions, and you’re not quite sure where to start. Try not to allow this pressure to throw you into a tizzy. Use this energy to get things accomplished now. Your intuition runs high, and you’re able to channel this for the greater good. You can turn back the hands of time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romance is key this week as you gather your resources toward a better lifestyle. You may be putting too much emphasis on your long-term goals and not “making room” for your personal life to flourish. With that said, dinner reservations or a weekend away will bring in the balance you need for your long-term happiness.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Upsetting news regarding a child or pet may have your lip quivering a bit midweek. Expect the best, and use your own personal “power of prayer” to ensure a successful outcome. A female friend or family member may need a little more attention or help than usual. Pay close attention to the signals she is sending.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Your concern about a child, pet or elderly person may have you feeling as though you’re losing your mind. Emotions run high, and your intuition has been on track. Now, you’re concerned as to what will follow next. Try to remind yourself that you have no control over some of these matters. Have faith that the universe will provide a solution, as well as protection. Finances are “off the charts” spectacular at this time. Enjoy!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may not be aware of it, but your lack of attention toward a friend or family member has been very hurtful toward them. Keep your lines of communication open with those who you hold near and dear to your heart. Your schedule may be demanding, but a loss this great may be unbearable for you in the long run.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Celebrate with friends and family. Don’t hold back — you have been working your butt off to get the job done, and now you’re in a position to receive the fruits of your labor. Enjoy, make room for the new as well as cherish those who have been a “fixture” in your life forever.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Take a leap of faith and allow a wish to come true. Of course, there are always better things to spend your time and energy on. However, in the long run, the positive energy you receive from this aspect will create a rippling effect with all dynamics in your life. A child or a pet takes priority this week. Good news arrives regarding these matters.
