Your Horoscope: Week of June 12-18, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 12-18, 2013
This Week: Venus’ opposition to Pluto early this week has the ability to create some real ugly temper tantrums and jealousy, bringing out the worst in us. Venus and Pluto are all about the truth, moving through it, sorting out our own feelings and owning them. Pay attention to what you may be accusing another of at this time, because you may be mirroring your own inner feelings and misdirecting them toward an innocent bystander. Then, when Venus squares Uranus on the 12th-13th, the flight mode feelings will be in full force. These feelings of wanting to run away from something instead of facing it will be very strong, but sit tight. By the end of the week, Venus trine with Chiron, allowing us to move out of our own dilemmas and to focus on helping others. You may find your dreams are very vivid during this time and even notice old wounds resurface in dream state — issues you thought were resolved long ago. Try not to let this disturb you too much. This is the mind, body and spirit’s way of clearing new paths for us.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — If you’re willing to pay attention, the universe is sending you all kinds of signs and information during this time. A fabulous career opportunity is about to align during this lunar cycle. Keep your finger on the pulse of this activity, and don’t be afraid to throw your hat in the ring. You are perfectly capable to handle this element. By week’s end, you need to wake up your romantic sector. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Unexpected news from afar may leave your heart heavy midweek. This may call for a connection with a friend who can align you with a spiritual course. There also appears to be some humor that falls into place as a result of this alignment. By week’s end, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel — and it’s not a train.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romance is first and foremost on your list of priorities this week. You need to take some time away to focus on your relationship sector, or lack thereof. Hiding your head in the sand or playing the avoidance game will not accomplish anything. Addressing these issues head-on will allow room for growth and further development.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — This is an action-packed week ahead as new opportunities for business arrive. Get plenty of rest and proper nutrition to keep your physical body aligned. You may be vulnerable to low energy otherwise. Unusual news arrives midweek from afar, creating an unexpected emotional response. Gather all of the information first before you respond.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — The past new moon June 8 could have left you a bit emotional and confused about a decision you made in the previous weeks or months. Slow down, and go within now. Try not to backslide; stick to your convictions and be cautious of what you’re bring voice to at this time. Harsh tones provide you with a one-way ticket to nowhere. By week’s end, you will know you are on the right path.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Keep a lid on your temper because those around you may be testing you to the limits. Some of them may not even know they are getting on your last nerve. Try to find peaceful activities that allow your mind to wander into a Zen energy space. Before you know it, this turbulent energy will move in an entirely different direction, and all will be back on track again. The weekend is filled with love and humor.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Pressure over finances will begin to lift this month. Unexpected sources of income arrive, as well as emotional support. As you begin to catch up, it’s good to remember your previous predicaments and not allow yourself to fall back into that trap again. The second half of this year will complete this struggle of financial inconsistency, once and for all. Until then, you have nowhere to go but up.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This week may start out on a heavy note with emotional or physical loss at hand. This element makes you look within yourself and your own longevity, as well as the welfare of others. Sensitive situations touch your heart deeply. By week’s end, an unexpected gathering will bring a tremendous amount of humor to your personal space.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You are past last week’s emotional “drama,” and all you want to do is move on now. As a result of this, you also find inner peace with how your life has progressed to this point. This weekend provides you with passion and humor. Use this energy to your full advantage now. You’re a magnet for prosperity. Be cautious during travel.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Because of your overwhelming work schedule, you may have neglected many personal relationships or responsibilities over the past month. Now, it is becoming evident you can’t rely on others to help you in your time of need. You will need to take action and make sure these situations are dealt with properly. Changes with children or pets may be emotional, but they are necessary for their own well-being. Finances are still a huge driving force this week.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Finances can be stressful this week, but this is only a temporary vibration. The universe is taking you into an entirely different direction, allowing you to prosper now. Allow these changes to sink in. They will become more evident as time rolls on this month. Your personal relationships begin the flourish.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Addictive personality traits will be affecting you this lunar cycle. If this is something you struggle with, then you will see the walls closing in on you, and you need to take steps to heal your life. If you are on the receiving end of this behavior, take a giant step back from whoever is serving this up to you. You can’t go down with the Titanic.
