Your Horoscope: Week of June 26-July 2, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 26-July 2, 2013
This Week: Mercury goes retrograde June 26 and stays there until July 20. You know the drill. Back up your computers, be cautious during travel, check and double check messages as well as communication and transportation devices. I’m hoping all of you had the opportunity to enjoy the super moon in Capricorn last weekend. The happy cosmic dust it provided should still be evident most of this week. Be cautious and stay safe during this time. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A meeting with a dark-haired male proves to be very favorable financially. The word of mouth this activity generates is absolutely great. Midweek puts you in a position to connect with loved ones. You may need to take a short break and get out of the house. You’re running low on humor, and this is a great time to recharge your batteries.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — The element of jealousy may be affecting you, a friend or family member this week. Try not to get sucked into this destructive path or feed into it. Get to the bottom of this instead. You may not necessarily need to call another on the carpet. The less said, the better. However, it’s good to be able to understand exactly where this is coming from and sit tight with the information. A change with home or property is evident now.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Because of the good energy you’ve sent out, there will be universal blessings coming your way this week. Think back, though … did you feel you did this out of love or resentment? If you resented your actions or the weakness of another, this could come back to haunt you. The time will come when you may need the help of another, and they may remember your actions well.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Children and pets play a significant role this week with your energy or finances. Try not to worry, a plan B will arrive that will be the perfect solution to a problem. If health issues are a concern, you will find all will end up just fine when all is said and done. Take some time out for yourself midweek — you will need it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your trust issues have everyone on their last nerve. It’s even beginning to bother you as well. Seeing we really have no control over the thoughts or actions of others, we must try to do the best we can with the lessons the universe provides for us. Take into consideration all of the blessings that have evolved as well. Once you can see that clearly, everything else will fall into place.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — This is a time for you to concentrate on your own personal best. Try not to put too much emphasis on the actions or goals of others now. Everyone sees things differently. You can’t expect those around you to have the same outlook. The weekend is filled with surprises. You will feel as though you have accomplished plenty.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Unusual circumstances arrive regarding legal matters or financial documents. Take things one step at a time, and don’t overlook anything. The end result will prove to be effective. However, while you’re going through this, it may seem like there is no end in sight. Be patient — it’s always darkest before the dawn.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An outside source is interested in providing you a career opportunity that will lend a financial upgrade as well as emotional fulfillment. You’re more intuitive than usual, and you’re beginning to see the big picture falling into place for you. A get-together will be a memorable one, filled with love and surprises. It is so obvious to you now that you have finally found your niche in life — spiritually, physically and emotionally.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Your financial sector gets a boost from positive career sources. Romance has had its share of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, you will see you need a loose rein and a supportive partner. It’s always in extremes for you. You end up with an evasive lover who deeply cares, or a control freak who won’t let you go to the bathroom by yourself. Now, it’s time to stand on your own and become who you need to be. After that, everything else will fall into place.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — People and places from the past will be up close and personal in the weeks to come. This isn’t necessarily a negative thing. Many times, the past can unlock and provide the keys to the future. It may be time to get away for the weekend for some well-deserved rest and relaxation. New sources of love and energy will emerge as a result of your adventurous nature. Enjoy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You’re on a winning streak this week, and all eyes are on you. With that said, take advantage of the learning experiences that are available to you now. Financially and romantically, there are positive developments arriving. You will find yourself coming into a windfall shortly. Make sure you share and share alike with your loved ones.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Pay close attention to detail, otherwise this week could have you retracing your steps and owing apologies. Accidentally overbooking or double-booking yourself will put you at an unexpected disadvantage. Take time to catch up with old acquaintances. You will be delighted with their insight and humor.
