Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 9-15, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 9-15, 2013
This Week: Planetary activities remain reasonably quiet early on this week, but just a reminder that this is the calm before the storm. Take advantage of this somewhat calming influence, because Oct. 19 begins a kick-off of crazy activity that lasts through mid-November. This week is a fabulous time to complete those annoying little projects that have sat on the back burner for so long. You will find an overwhelming sense of peace and accomplishment once they are in order, and you might as well get these aspects in check before the planetary crap hits the fan.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Something may feel as though it’s too good to be true early on this week. With the recent mindset of “When is the other shoe going to drop?”, this could be a bit unnerving. However, it’s your turn to embrace emotional bliss. Everybody gets their day at the beach, so pack your suit and towel — your life is taking a major shift for the better. A past love may try to resurface at this time. It’s best to leave this one alone.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Long-awaited news arrives this week from the past. This is a positive time to resolve a long-standing issue. Midweek allows you the time to get out and about. You’re able to network as well as socialize with those of like mind. Humor may have been missing from the mix as of late. This is the key to your emotional well-being.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An unexpected gift will arrive shortly, making you feel like a million bucks. This aspect can bring an emotional reaction out of you that may be unexpected. Allow your feelings to flow naturally — relief is on the way. By week’s end, you are able to get to the bottom of a relationship challenge in the best possible light.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Be very conscious of how you are treating others at this time. Frustrations may be mounting in the workforce or with added responsibilities from an elderly family member. Try not to take this out on a loved one now. They may be spread thin and could lash out unexpectedly. The damage could be irreconcilable, and regrets could follow.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — The health concern of a female could be weighing heavily on your mind this week. Try not to allow this to affect your physical well-being, if you can help it.Your intuition will guide you through this process with ease. A document you have been waiting for will arrive soon. This is way more than you expected.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The fear of failure may be creating some turmoil for you or a loved one this week. Make sure you are purposely seeing the cup half full. You have the ability to draw strength for unexpected sources, like a well that never runs dry. Take a night out on the town to relieve some pressure. Connecting with friends and family is key this week.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Try not to take the behavior of another personally. A withdrawn individual may need some time to process something stirring deep within them. When they emerge with an answer, you will be the first to know. Until then, move wide of this aspect, and go to other sources for refreshment. There are plenty of wells from which to draw.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — A change in your appearance will help you feel better about yourself. You’re feeling really “cooped up” this week. Get out and exercise, or go to a movie. You’re searching for a distraction, so pick a healthy one. A message from an Aries, Leo or Sagittarius woman could put you on the edge of your seat. Wait until you hear the rest of the story before you fly off the handle.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Pay close attention to the elements around you at this time. Someone may not be acting like themselves and could even be self-destructive. Don’t underestimate this situation under any circumstance; utilize your intuition to the fullest power this week, and act accordingly. You won’t regret it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You have been experiencing an “uneasiness” that you can’t put your finger on at this time. You feel responsible or think you are missing some kind of sign from the heavens now. Don’t try so hard to fix this “unknown” problem. By week’s end, everything will come out in the open. From there, an answer to a prayer will be provided.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You are in a very powerful position to make a difference in someone else’s life. Make absolutely sure this is a positive influence. Everything you send out will come back to you in full form. You deserve to be blessed as much as the next person does. Maybe this is a test to see how you handle a specific karmic task. Choose your words ever carefully so that they do not come back to haunt you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — A loss from the past may be weighing heavily on your mind this week. It seems as though you just can’t shake it. Even in your dreams you’re communicating with those who are no longer here — physically or emotionally. Try not to allow this to trouble your heart too much. You are processing grief that you thought you had moved forward with. It’s OK to retrace your steps a bit. By week’s end, you will begin to see where your priorities really lie.
