Your Horoscope: Week of Oct. 16-22, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Oct. 16-22, 2013
This Week: Yikes … this is going to be an action-packed week, starting with the full moon eclipse in Aries Oct. 19. Aries can tend to bring out the warrior in all of us. However, with the sun in Libra, this could be quite an earth-shaking vibration. As Libra calls in the “make-love-not-war” energy, there will definitely be a conflict of emotions surging through all of us. Expect the unexpected, but mind your tongue and actions during this time, if at all possible. Once you bring voice to something, you can’t take it back. There will be break-ups, breakdowns and the opportunity to heal, although many past emotions will do their best to come blasting to the surface attempting to create conflict. Watch it! If you move through this time graciously, you will benefit from these influences, and they will improve the quality of your life for the next two years. If you decide to go to war with everyone you know, you will pay for it for the next two years. Then, we have lovely Mercury retrograde arriving Oct. 21-Nov. 10. Now, considering Mercury moved into Scorpio at the beginning of the month, you probably all noticed some heaviness and past emotions dredging up to the surface and were wondering where in the heck these old, worn-out elements came from. When Mercury goes retrograde “this time,” it might even provide us with an opportunity to lighten that energy up a bit. In summary? Oct. 19, or the days surrounding it, will not be the best time to lose your cool. Go within and work through these past wounds once and for all. Understand these are your wounds, and don’t project them onto others. It will be a difficult balancing act, but it can be done.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — An Aries, Leo or Sagittarius man or woman may need your help this week and may not know how to go about asking for it. No matter how your past connection may or may not have influenced this aspect, you’re in a position to help them step up and fix this problem. You have the knowledge and the determination to provide emotional support and help them through this. The universe will guide you through this situation with tender loving care.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Tensions my flare with those around you early on this week. However, this does not mean you need to get involved in it. It may be better to just avoid these elements entirely and concentrate on your own life. Stay out of the affairs of others, and you’ll be better off in the long run. You don’t want to push an issue so far that it becomes a legal matter for you — or worse yet, a loved one.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Good news arrives from a long-distance phone call. Romance is delicate and sensitive this week. It may be time to claim your stake in the arena of love. Family matters are gentle and “very” sensitive as well. You are overwhelmed with joy by week’s end with what the universe has brought into your life.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Wow … expect some big shifts and changes with your personal life this week. Some good, some bad … but at the end of the day, these changes all make perfect sense. This is an extremely fortunate time for you — lucky at business, lucky at love. Thank the universe for the blessings you are about to receive.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — This may be a really good time to restructure your financial goals. All is not lost. In fact, your ability to pull yourself out of this temporary bind will become evident this week. You may receive help from a female who’s really in the know, and not someone who believes they are (which has been surrounding you lately). Her influence with the powers that be are quite beneficial now. As a result, your personal life takes a turn for the better.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Relief is in sight as a powerful burst of energy arrives this week. The universe is in the process of aligning the perfect path for you. Make a stand and defend your position within your own home. Do not be afraid of the repercussions. Others are trying to bluff you into their own will.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You are pushing through many overwhelming burdens, but when all is said and done, you will be pleased with your accomplishments. You’re worried about the mud, blood and grime. This will all find its way out of your life in the weeks to come. Hook up with friends, and make good on an impromptu celebration.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Romance is still within your radar of “not exactly where you might want it to be.” No need to worry … this will fall into place before the end of the year. Meantime, get down to business with your financial responsibilities and clear the path for the months to come. A lucky break with your financial sector is on the way. With that said, you can set a legal matter straight that has been weighing heavily on your mind for quite a while now.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You are finally at peace with your own inner “wolf medicine.” You need to take a big step back and understand exactly when the time is right to strike. Lie low and allow others to continue to make mistakes around you and break the rules. The list is adding up fast, and it won’t be long now before karma steps in and takes action. Expect the unexpected with your career and legal matters. A blessing is on the way.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Decisions need to be made with your health and emotional welfare this week. You have so much to live for, and yet, for some reason, you feel the need to sabotage yourself. If you can become courageous enough to overcome the little idiosyncrasies in life, you can conquer the world. Career elements are looking up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Pushing through the small, annoying, mundane tasks may have you hanging on your very last “nerve” early on this week. Take a step back, and count to 10. When all is said and done, everything will fall into place as you imagined. Fretting over things we have “no control over” will not help you now. Have faith that the universe has your back, and with that said, it will!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are experiencing what I might call coming through the “birth canal” this week. Whew! This may take a bit of getting used to, but in the end, a metamorphosis is about to begin within your personal realm. You are experiencing the truth now; be it good or bad, you can see the light. From there, you will have the clarity you need to take proper action, if you are willing to let go and let God.
