Your Horoscope: Week of Sept. 4-10, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Sept. 4-10, 2013
This Week: The new moon in Virgo Sept. 5 benefits the alignment and organization of the mind, body and spirit, including your actual physical space. Home and property become a focus as well. This is a great time to cleanse and remove unwanted energy as well as items that are no longer serving you. Mercury in Virgo at this time also allows us to find solutions to long-standing problems and communicate them graciously. As Mars squares Saturn, you will find an overwhelming amount of unexpected energy to get these aspects in place. Venus’ favorable placement in Libra will accentuate beauty on all levels, focusing on the physical as well as emotional well-being of these elements surrounding us. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Utilize this time to accentuate your creative skills. The planets are working in your favor. Unexpected energy arrives, allowing you to revamp the interior of your sacred space, physically as well as spiritually. Some loved ones may be concerned with your health and may push an issue of wellness at this time. If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends, it’s time to take care of your needs as well. Listen closely to the observations of others — they may be dead on.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Changes with property and residence are extremely positive at this time. You’re able to find the “right fit” for your needs now. There is an addition to the family arriving soon. Children and pets play a significant role in the months to come. You will be making a decision regarding this matter, and you won’t regret the outcome.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You are about to experience a huge breakthrough with a large client or a possible employment option. Keep your eyes and ears open now. Positive influences behind the scenes are creating a major turning point in the weeks to come. This will also open doors for new social connections as well. Those of like mind want to get to know you better.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Try not to second-guess your choices this week. You are in a position to get the help you need with mind, body and spirit. You will become more consciously aware of how you have sabotaged yourself in the past. Now, you’re coming into a brand-new time frame. Friends and loved ones offer support. Take time out to socialize. You will learn new things about yourself as well as those around you.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You will feel loved and supported by those who have entered your life during this past year. Try not to worry about your long-term career goals. You will find that everything is lining up according to plan. The contacts you’ve made will put you in the driver’s seat shortly, and your personal life will fall into place as well.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A perfect fit arrives regarding a costly or emotional matter this week. The solution may surprise you a bit, but the end result is fabulous. Taking time to connect to nature and pets brings you back down to earth after a long, stressful week. Saturday holds the key to a relationship problem that has been ongoing for a while. Everything resolves itself without much effort.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Is it time for a check-up from the neck up? You are definitely questioning the behavior of those around you lately, and for good reason. Too many unresolved issues have been on the table lately. You may be put in a place where you have to evaluate your role in this mess as well. If you are unable to do this, nothing will heal. As a result, you will continue to feel alone. You deserve more than that.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Time to go toe to toe with someone whom you have been avoiding for quite some time. The more you avoid this, the more complicated this becomes, the more outside influences get involved, and the more nonsense it creates. Call a mud wrestling match if you have to, but get it out on the table now. You may be pleasantly surprised to find the outcome is much more productive and healing than you imagined it could be.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Even though the universe may appear to be testing your patience, it is also strengthening the muscles surrounding it. If you have fallen down (so to speak) and read somebody the riot act recently, they probably needed it. Try not to go backward and beat yourself up over it — let it go. Finances will be fabulous during this time, and an unexpected windfall will arrive in the nick of time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Now is the time to make that major purchase you’ve been considering for quite some time. You’ve looked this over long enough — it’s time to treat yourself to something nice. News regarding a female’s health may have you a bit worried. The outcome will be better than originally predicted. An unexpected surprise arrives midweek that leaves you feeling extremely loved and cherished.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Long-distance communication provides some interesting information. You’re able to put the puzzle pieces together regarding an old personal issue now. You will realize that timing was the key with a failed relationship and not to take it personally. Knowing this, you’re able to move forward into a much better connection now. Midweek brings an unexpected windfall or bonus.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — The concern of a health matter regarding a male may have everyone around you on edge at this time. Your prayers are going to be answered in unusual ways this week. Expect the unexpected with friendships and co-workers. Someone is about to tell you they have made a mistake. Take this in stride, and help them resolve their dilemma.
