Your Horoscope: Week of July 24-30, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 24-30, 2013
This Week: Still under the positive influence of the water grand trine, it will be much easier to embrace with mischievous Mercury out of the way. However, early on this week, you could still be dusting yourself off from this past weekend’s activity when Mercury went direct (July 20). Positive influences surrounding travel are arriving now. Get out of Dodge for a while, and recharge your batteries. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A dark-haired male offers some insight on romance as well as finance at this time. Trust your instincts on this situation. He offers you the clarity for which you’ve been searching. Your concerns about the health and welfare of a female friend or family member can be a bit distracting early on this week. However, a healing process is in the works to balance out these wellness challenges. Have faith regarding this matter.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Personal relationships have been a bit on the shaky side for a while now. It may be a good idea to take a breather and allow another the space they require. If you allow this time out to heal the energies around you, you will be back on track before week’s end. An overdue payment or settlement will arrive in your favor by month’s end. Set some money aside for a rainy day. Long-distance communication is highlighted.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Financial pressures will be lifting shortly, allowing you some extra breathing room. Your concerns about the health of another may be weighing heavily on your mind. Your prayers will be answered shortly. Trust the universe to get the job done, and take care of yourself during this stressful time. You can’t afford to become worn down as well. Your strength is important to your long-term goals and dreams.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Romantic or co-worker pressure will continue to be an issue if you don’t get off your high horse and play fair with another. Control or manipulation will get you nowhere, other than on the outside looking in. Is this really the way you want to handle things? You must learn to give and take a bit. A financial advantage is on the way. Be generous with your blessings. When you pay it forward, everybody wins.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — The workplace may start out rocky early on this week. However, expect this to turn around in your favor by week’s end. You are about to receive a beautiful blessing, one that will take your breath away. By week’s end, all is said and done. You’re on top of the world, and you’re able to see the light.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Romance is about to take a major turn for the better. You can see evidence of a loving energy and opportunities now. Family squabbles and manipulation have gotten on your last nerve as of late. Now, someone is willing to make a wrong right; encourage this behavior. You cannot be put in the middle of your loved ones in that fashion. This isn’t healthy for anyone. Take a step back from overspending. Don’t be bamboozled out of your hard-earned cash.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Back to the mundane schedule, and nobody will be happier about that than you.You have been spread so thin you don’t even remember what your home and family look like. Now, there will be plenty of time for friendship and romance, and you feel much more lighthearted with the sun in Leo now. A business deal is about to take shape and form in your favor. This is financially advantageous.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may be taking on a little bit more than you’re used to handling at this time, financially or emotionally. This is only a temporary situation that will become a quick fix for another. To make a loved one’s life a little bit easier will be the best karma you can draw to you now. Long-distance communication is very informative.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Good news arrives regarding a long, drawn-out financial aspect. This will definitely put your mind at ease. Pay close attention to the stress a loved one is under, and do what you can to make their life a little bit easier during this time. Emotional disturbances need to be handled with love and care. Don’t manipulate or allow another to manipulate you. Set proper boundaries.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Enough of the past. You’re coming into a very positive cycle where new friends and new beginnings are available to you now. You don’t want to be presenting yourself in a negative light. An offer of work or an upgrade will put you in the best frame of mind. Put your best foot forward now. All eyes are on you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Your social sector is expanding as well as your personal growth. Romantic elements radiate through the month of August. A financial problem will be resolved in your favor or a loved one’s favor during this time. Stick to your guns.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may be considering a purchase of a large-ticket item. Or, an item you have wanted to release yourself from will find a proper owner shortly.
