Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 4-10, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 4-10, 2013
This Week: Mars moves into Libra Dec. 7 and remains there until July. Venus remains in Capricorn through March and goes retrograde Dec. 21. What does all of this mean? Shaky, rough and sometimes combative activity that will ride the waves for the next couple months. Most of this will be evident on more of a global scale. We may see more challenges with government or clashes with nations than usual. However, we can also witness this on more of a personal level, as these aggravating energies trickle down around us. Be mindful of what you bring voice to in the coming weeks, and don’t get caught up in unnecessary banter regarding things we really have no control over. The test here is to maintain your personal peace and harmony and to not contribute to the static.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You will be in the position to clear up an old debt, either financially or emotionally now. Just move through it and try not to dwell on this too much. Once this is behind you, the universe will make up for lost time. You will find an unexpected energy source to draw from. A secret admirer may come forward and make his or her intentions known.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Travel plans (yours or someone else’s ) may have you a bit on edge this week. Pay close attention to what another may not being saying, and read between the lines. Go with your gut, and you will do the right thing. The physical or emotional health of a loved one could have you very concerned. Take action before this gets out of control.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Romance takes an unexpected turn for the better midweek. You will be pleasantly surprised with the outcome of a heart-to-heart talk. An opportunity will arrive to upgrade your current employment. As a result of this, you’re beginning to see a positive outcome toward your long-term goals, as well as how all of this will fit into your current lifestyle.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — News from far away may have you a bit on edge early on this week. Try not to take it out on those whom you hold close to your heart. This may not come to pass as expected, so it will do you no good to worry yourself into a frenzy over what may or may not be. Developing a new hobby or skill allows you to increase your social contacts.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You have developed a strong compassion for a loved one. You’re finally at the point where you can actually see what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s shoes. Lead by example, and others will follow in your footsteps. You’re in the limelight this week with co-workers and the powers that be. You’re obtaining your goals.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A new client or business referral will open doors for future success. This will be a very productive time. Take a step back and try not to react so harshly to a temporary behavior problem of another. This may not have anything to do with you at all. If you react on a personal level without knowing the whole story, regrets will follow.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — It’s time to focus on your long-term dreams, ambitions and desires this week. Pay very close attention to those who are coming into the picture at this time. The universe is working in very mysterious ways. You’re making connections that will improve the quality of your life substantially. A perfect mix of work and play arrives this week. Take advantage of this.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An answer to a prayer is arriving. This will take a tremendous weight off your shoulders in the months to come. It really is time to start socializing with others. You’ve had a little taste for it, and now it’s becoming contagious. Others find your company refreshing as well as amusing.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romantic aspects begin to shift in the right direction. Your intuition is dead on this week and guiding you in the right direction. Information you receive from an older female or a person of authority will prove to be very important in the weeks to come. Keep this under your hat for now, until the right opportunity presents itself. Then, grab the brass ring.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may need to make your intentions clear to a friend or loved one this week. You tend to go within to sort out your path, and sometimes that leaves others wondering where they stand. You will be receiving good news from a distance. Your long-term goals are solidifying.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You have an unbelievable lucky streak arriving at this time. An old contract or debt is about to be completed in your favor. Finance and romance seem to go hand-in-hand in the coming year, 2014. The changes you make will improve the quality of your life tenfold. Take time out to overindulge your significant other this week. An emotional investment is worthwhile.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Unexpected travel or unexpected company may be arriving this week. Consider yourself forewarned, and take some time out to get things in order. This will leave you plenty of time to deal with out-of-the-blue situations and circumstances. This week could be a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Take care of yourself, first and foremost.
