Your Horoscope: Week of July 10-16, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 10-16, 2013
This Week: We begin to shake off the emotional elements the July 8 new moon presented to us. Unfounded fears begin to diminish, and clarity arrives regarding long-term goals, personal or professional. We are still in the midst of Mercury retrograde, which will be moving direct July 20. The grand water trine with Jupiter, Neptune and Saturn does provide a positive spin on this otherwise mischievous planetary influence. Be cautious during travel, back up your computer data, and check and double-check messages. Stay safe, and enjoy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A romantic aspect begins to take shape into a solid foundation during the next few months. You’re no longer puzzled by the intentions of another. There is light at the end of the tunnel, as the behavior of others begins to shift. You can ease up on your busy schedule a bit to socialize and catch up with friends and family. Finances take a turn for the better.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A remedy for a long-standing problem will arrive this week. This appears to be something that has been shoved to the back of your mind, and yet it never seems to go away. Now, you find a solution and take the steps to improve the quality of your life in ways you could never before fathom. A major breakthrough with finances arrives midweek.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You’re able to cover a lot of ground this week. Between business and romantic elements, you’re in rare form and able to balance all the books. If romance has been a bit stale as of late, this weekend will change that for the better. You may want to consider a weekend getaway shortly.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You’re receiving recognition from the powers that be this week. A business proposal once removed should be back on track for you soon. Receive this element graciously, and try not to say “I told you so.” A loss of a female may be on your mind. Precious memories are something no one can ever take away from you.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your energy levels are beginning to improve, and your health is becoming a top priority. There is a hidden advantage with your work environment now that will grow into an uncomplicated solid foundation. It may not be visible to the naked eye just yet, but it will be unveiled shortly. Peace and harmony within that sector of your life have been a long time coming.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You may feel as though you have to choose between two romantic aspects or work situations. Don’t complain. After a bit of a dry spell, this should be a welcome relief. Take time out to connect with friends and family this week. Interesting information is revealed when you finally hook up.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romantic elements have some interesting twists and turns this week. Just when you think you have this aspect figured out, another clue arrives. Take a step back and try not to jump to conclusions until all of the data have been presented. You may find there is some truth in the matter, but the timing is way off.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Things begin to heal up this week after a long, tedious transition. A holistic approach to a health concern may hold the key for success in the long run. A negative diagnosis may not be accurate. Take a leap of faith, and try alternative methods for you or a loved one. By week’s end, progress is made.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romantic aspects begin to smooth out, and you feel as though you are back on track again. Finances continue to improve throughout the month of July, including an unexpected windfall. A new-age or alternative method of communication promotes your business or offers a new career option for you. Take a look at all opportunities presented.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may feel angry or vulnerable for a short period of time about a past love or past situation. Let this go, and watch the tables turn right before your eyes. Your anger dissolves and your empathy grows as you begin to heal from within. Take a night out on the town with a friend or family member. You won’t be disappointed.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — If you have recently distanced yourself from friends or family, it is time to reach out and resume contact. No one really knows what has caused this element, and it’s only human to assume they may be at the bottom of the problem. Lighten the load, and clarify what has been going on. This confusion will be completed shortly.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — An unexpected stroke of luck arrives at the 11th hour regarding finances or a legal matter. Once you have all of these aspects put into place, you can take a break and celebrate with friends and family. You have put a tremendous amount of energy into your significant other. You will see this pay off very soon.
