Your Horoscope: Week of May 8-14, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 8-14, 2013
This Week: The new moon solar eclipse May 9 in Taurus provides all of the tools you will need to activate new beginnings and sharpen your self-esteem. It is as though this eclipse is on steroids, providing all the inner strength you will need to accomplish your goals. This element will also be responsible for removing deadweight obstacles that no longer serve us, and open new doors in the months to come. Remember this: Taurus moves in a steady, methodical and consistent path. This is a very passionate time. Utilize it to your advantage.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A self-employed, self-contracted career opportunity is on the horizon now. Keep your ear to the ground and your finger on the pulse of the community for this additional income. Family matters may have you on edge early in the week. Realize just how much you can or cannot do for another, and try to let it go. Sometimes the best solutions are found within, and no amount of meddling can change the outcome.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — An unexpected offer of work will arrive in the next few weeks, helping you to line your pocketbook in a favorable way. Take the time to explore this opportunity — you won’t regret it. Romance is questionable midweek. Bite your tongue and allow everything to come out into the open first. Once you have all of the information you need, you can handle this in the best possible light.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Let the good times roll! This is a week you won’t forget. All of your connections are giving you the heads up for long-term goals and achievements. Feel free to express your gratitude to those who have had your back all of this time. It’s easy for others to see the light at the end of the tunnel for you — now, you can see it for yourself.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You have the best intentions, but sometimes it’s difficult for you to see the real needs of another close to you. It’s not about solutions as much as it is about emotional support. It’s difficult to digest sometimes. However, an available ear is all a loved one or friend may need. Offer to take some time to listen, and positive results will follow. Business is looking up.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Get down to business this week. You may find you’re falling behind with your paperwork and documents, and it’s time to catch up and move this “mess” out of your way. You will need some time off shortly for romance and play. Another is teasing you, and you’re not sure how to take it. Try the lighthearted approach. Remember, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You are expanding your social circle and getting to know friends and family of those around you. It’s amazing how much you can learn from what you’ve observed how much the family tree emphasizes personal relationships. What a blessing to experience this opportunity. In fact, you may learn a lot about yourself as well at this time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Ahh … at last, the break you’ve been waiting for. It’s your time to shine! There is a definite recognition of your hard work and efforts now. You can acknowledge your energy as a positive output now! You may be letting go of some old connections as well at this time. There is no room for looking back now. The gift in time is now — that’s why it is called the present.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — It’s time to take note of the fact that life is VERY SHORT! Do you need to downsize or let go of overwhelming responsibilities that are wearing on your last nerve? If this is the case, let it go. This can create a negative effect on your health as well as your emotional well-being. You have so many blessings arriving over the summer months. There is no room for darkness.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A change in scenery regarding career is on the horizon. You will feel connected to this activity in a positive way. You are about to receive some “privileged” information regarding a very important matter. You need to keep this to yourself until the time is right to use it. Even then, this is not for everyone to receive. You will know who and what to do with this as time rolls on. Until then, “mum’s the word.”
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — OK, I promise you will not continue to feel this overwhelmed in the next few weeks. It is as though so many things are piling up on you so fast that you don’t know what day it is. This weekend, you will have a fabulous break that will help you back into alignment. Your spirits and your confidence level will begin to soar again.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Until you receive the green light on a project, try not to jump the gun too soon. You could blow your cover, so to speak, or another could steal an idea that rightfully belongs to you. Keep your thoughts and ideas to yourself or your closest confidants. You can seek additional information this week to “close the deal.”
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You’re done with the nonsense and evasive behavior of another. Midweek will be the best time to call them on the carpet in a productive way. You may need to go to your superiors regarding this matter. Do not hesitate to clear the air with the powers that be. If you present yourself in the best possible light, you will be fine.
