Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 21-27, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 21-27, 2013
This Week: Let the dust settle from the emotionally-complicated full moon (Aug. 20-21) and allow communication to slowly resolve itself. If you try to push too hard, you may end up with another emotional entanglement before the week’s over. This moon provides clarity as well as solutions to long-standing problems. When all is said and done, it will have unveiled many mysteries and affairs of the heart’s desire.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Once you initiate an idea for a project, expect to be on top of it from start to finish. Even though there may be some help with this aspect, those around you may need a lot of encouragement to follow through. An old romantic aspect will resurface with a vengeance. You will have all of the information you need to put this to rest once and for all. A feeling of relief will follow.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — If the past weekend made you feel like you were attempting to escape the “loony bin,” you were right. Expect the coming weekend to be filled with exciting activity with changes within your home environment. You are on the right path to make some favorable changes with home now. This simplifies and improves the quality of your life for the better. Have no fear of change; when all is said and done, you will be thanking your lucky stars you did what you did.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An element of remorse may creep up on you this week. Perhaps your behavior has not been up to par. Take some time to extend yourself a little more with your loved ones. You will never have any regrets if you make your feelings known. The weekend promises a mix of business and pleasure. New leads and opportunities are on the way.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Romantic interests begin to pop out of the woodwork at this time. Single Cancers can have a field day with this notion. Even though this can become confusing, you can pick and choose, and you do not need to make up your mind at this minute. Wait to see until the last one is standing at the end of June, and go from there. Midweek, you may have some tedious financial business to deal with, but all turns out for the best in the end.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You are removing negative habits and influences from your system. This may take some getting used to before it really sinks in. By week’s end, you will begin to feel the benefits of this aspect on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Your energy level will increase. Until then, fake it until you make it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Highly-charged emotional situations will surround you this week. You will need to take extra care that you do not overlook an important document or financial responsibility. As we move in to week’s end, things will begin to smooth out and allow you time to get together with friends and family and relax a bit. Remember to breathe.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Stay out of the personal matters of friends or family this week. The more you try to “fix” something, the more trouble you will get yourself involved in. You may feel nobody is good enough to move into a specific slot in another loved one’s life. However, that is not for you to say. This is their journey, not yours, so let it be. Enjoy the outdoors and your significant other now. Life is short!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — If you feel left out of the loop, perhaps its because you put yourself there to begin with. Extend yourself and get back in the mix. Everyone can become so busy they do not necessarily include someone who always says “no” to offers to socialize. This next week will open doors for a new career or expansion on a current situation. New people, places and activities will evolve from this situation. Go for it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — If you have recently found yourself riddled with anxiety, expect this week to have a soothing effect on you. Everything is out in the open, and you have an opportunity to resolve an old frustrating issue. Expansion with career and finance put a spring in your step. Those with jealousy and envy may not wish to celebrate with you. However, there are many loved ones ready to sing your praises.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A love interest appears to be right under your nose and you may not be able to read it quite right at this time. Accept invitations to social gatherings and allow new relationships to develop. There are people around you who are willing to share. Remember, it is OK to receive love and affection.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Shocking or unexplained long-distance communication may have you on the edge of your seat this week. You’re wondering how to handle the information that is evident and what you’re going to do with it. Relax, take a deep breath, and know your loved ones need your support. You will be the foundation everyone will need to lean on. You can collapse later.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Expect a favorable turn of events with your finances shortly. You had to remove some old debt or financial frustration. However, a clear financial path is on the way. Then, you will be able to plan out your long-term goals with more confidence and determination. Romance may be part of this bigger picture. Smile! The focus is on you now.
