Your Horoscope: Week of July 17-23, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 17-23, 2013
This Week: We’re looking at an action-packed week, no doubt, as Mercury goes direct (July 20) and the full moon arrives (July 22) in innovative Aquarius. This will be a mixed bag of adventure and calamities, so do your best to stay on the rewards plan these planetary influences have to offer. Be cautious with travel and communication, back up computers, and check and double-check messages. Mercury retrograde can be just as mischievous going direct as it is arriving. However, the full moon in Aquarius has a lot to offer. Romantic aspects are positively charged with sexy Aquarius’ influence. Remember, we are still under the spell of the water grand trine, which is a magnificent element. This continues to shine a spotlight on the entire month of July. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Roll up your sleeves, and prepare for some difficult, but rewarding, work this week. Once this is done, you will see the results you have been trying to accomplish for quite some time. A positive influence arrives midweek. Be open and receptive to change.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Take a step back this week and go within. You will be able to reflect on your past, present and future from the knowledge that you acquire this week. There is so much love available for you and the opportunity to heal all wounds. Pick up the slack of a lost soul, and watch the emotional rewards arrive immediately.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Meditation, connection and validating your emotions should be top priority this week. Your anger is not helping you. If you’re a “gentle” Gemini soul, the misplaced anger of another should be cut to the quick at this time. It’s all about perception. Focus on the positive, and allow all living beings to dwell within your emotional soul.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — It feels good to touch, caress and show affection to those living beings around you. How could you have ever lost sight of that in your journey? Get back to basics, and share emotional intimacy with those of like mind, body and spirit. Validate your significant others and loved ones within your realm. You won’t regret it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Oh, you are about to experience a major breakthrough with your own personal goals. Make sure you are acknowledging those who have always believed in you. With a little “magic,” love and light, you’re on top of your game at this time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Hanging on to some pertinent information could be more trouble than it’s worth for you now. It’s best to work on a plan of action and lay out the ground rules for future success. Try not to let negative economic chatter put you in a tailspin. You’re on the rise to financial gain.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Romantic elements come from some unusual sources. Be open and receptive to an impromptu gathering. This may also put you in a position to mix business and pleasure, creating an upgrade in your financial status. You may need to clear out old clutter and unused items from your environment as well. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Positive news regarding a work aspect or significant other’s career path calls for a reason to celebrate this week. Manifesting goals, dreams and ambitions is not as complicated as it once seemed. Obstacles are removed, one by one.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Your mind and intuition may be playing tricks on you this week. Darker strange energies may be difficult to read and easily misinterpreted. Everything happens for a reason. Allow the universe to take care of you. There are grandiose plans in the making. By the full moon July 22, all will be revealed.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Finances finally improve for the better. With that said, cut corners and re-evaluate where your money is going. Unnecessary expenditures may be limiting your potential for long-term growth. Set boundaries with a pushy individual this week. You don’t owe anybody anything.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A change of scenery may do you a world of good at this time. Even if you feel as though you can’t afford the time or money spent toward this aspect, do it anyway. This will increase “emotional” circulation and spiritual food for the soul. Once you have re-grouped, you will see immediate results.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — A lighthearted approach to a darker issue will change the outcome entirely. Expect the unexpected when it comes to love and career this week. Somehow, the two may form an unusual alliance and emotional support. Long-distance communication arrives by week’s end.
