Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 14-20, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 14-20, 2013
This Week: The full moon falls in a split shift between Aug. 20 in Aquarius and Aug. 21 in sensitive Pisces. This can create a strange array of emotional aspects that can carry on for both days. While it starts out in the thinker of deep thoughts, Aquarius, one may find this a time of completion and clarity regarding complex issues. Then, as it spins into Pisces, some may find that everything they thought they had figured out all runs willy-nilly backwards, and emotions can run extremely high. Take it easy on yourself and others during this time. A tremendous amount of clarity will arrive eventually, and when all of the dust settles, a clear path has formed.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Business negotiations could become a bit sticky toward the end of the week, if you don’t hold your ground. Miscommunication can turn into a strange “he said, she said” element. Stand firm in your convictions; this may be a test for you to honor your own value. You may find yourself becoming tired of scolding another regarding his or her destructive health patterns. At the end of the day, you are being heard, even though it appears someone is turning a deaf ear to your concerns. Keep the faith.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You really need to watch your finances at this time, and don’t count your chickens before they are hatched. There may be a delay with a payment. However, by month’s end, this will all come out in the wash in your favor. This may have been a very long, drawn-out process, but your persistent nature will be recognized by the full moon.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — A love from your past will pop up this week, creating some confusion for you. You may not know what to do with this aspect or exactly why this has a re-occurring theme now. When all is said and done, you will have the knowledge you need to move forward into the present. You may even be grateful you are where you are today.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You feel overworked and underpaid again this week. Take a break — you need your rest and you need to re-group with family and friends. You will not miss out on any important deals by allowing a little time away from the workforce. In fact, you may find that with a little rest and relaxation, you will be on top of your game by midweek.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — A large group or organization will honor your efforts with a humanitarian cause. This will help you feel as though you are making a difference in the lives of others. With that said, you will explore other options to “pay it forward” in this so-called life. This contagious “feel-good” element shifts the way you perceive yourself. A moment of self-fulfillment does the heart a world of good.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You may be very bewildered by a past love or friendship resurfacing at this time. Questioning the motives or the unexplained synchronicity will only drive you crazy in the long run. Take a step back and see what evolves from this aspect. At the end of the day, you will find you have learned more about yourself than you expected to out of this. This shifts the way you perceive others permanently.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You’re taking a lighter approach to a deeper issue, and this is for the best. If you show some compassion toward the feeling of others, you will learn a tremendous amount about yourself in the process. We have no control over the actions and behavior of others. If we can just live in the moment, we will have peace in our hearts.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An unexpected gift or honor will be bestowed upon you this week. You will be pleasantly surprised at the outcome of this endeavor. You have finally become confident enough to trust the universe’s “bigger plan.” In the grand scheme of things, everyone comes into our lives for a reason. This is a time to celebrate our own life, as well as the lives of others.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — It’s back to the grindstone with a very productive and financially lucrative week ahead of you. A positive outcome regarding legal matters is resolving itself now as well. Get plenty of rest, and don’t over-indulge in your own personal “bad habits.” You will not want to feel the physical pressure of unhealthy aspects at this time. All eyes are on you, so you want to be at the top of your game. You won’t regret it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Romantic elements may feel a bit off early on this week. It may be best to just walk wide of this instead of taking a crowbar to it. If you allow another to catch up to you emotionally, all will fall magically into place by week’s end. If you “cop” an attitude, you may end up paying severely for it in the end.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Time to make plans for a grand-scale trip or a weekend getaway. You have put in way too much “overtime” not to take a break now. Even if this cannot be in place for the next week or two, committing to something that’s “all about you” is not a bad thing.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Good news arrives regarding a home or property complication that has been a nagging source of irritation to you. This will bring a welcome sigh of relief. You may find yourself missing someone or something dreadfully early on this week. A quiet household or work environment could be intensifying this aspect. Gather with those who love and admire your qualities; a dinner or movie is just the trick to put you back on track.
