Your Horoscope: Week of Dec. 25-31, 2013
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Dec. 25-31, 2013
This Week: We may be feeling as though we are moving through a serious strain of déjà vu flu during this time. Everything and everyone from the past may be re-entering our realm. However, this is a good thing. It allows us all to observe and reconstruct our paths in life. Retracing our steps can offer a tremendous amount of clarity in the long run. In the grand scheme of things, we always come out of energies like this unscathed — if we choose to. Happy holidays!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Expansion within your home and family are evident at this time. An opportunity for self-employed or self-contracted work will arrive in the coming year. Be open and receptive to these opportunities. If this is already in the works, you may find an additional financial outlet in the year to come. Romantic aspects are favorable by week’s end.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Intuition is key this week, so pay close attention to your dreams. You will be receiving some valuable information now. Use this to your best ability and to benefit others as well. Money may appear to be trickling in. Try not to let this worry you too much. You’re getting a break to rest at this time to process your emotions. Take advantage of it.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — It may be time to set the record straight. Misdirected anger channeled by you or someone else is causing you a tremendous amount of tension. These aspects could continue well into 2014, if you don’t correct them now. Lay the law down with a pushy friend or relative, and set some boundaries. It’s time make a wrong right.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You have found yourself the center of attention all of a sudden and don’t know quite what to do with it. The year 2013 has definitely tested your patience and left you wondering “What’s in it for me?” Expect some unexpected pleasures to roll in around the new year. Home and property are a focus this week. In the weeks to come, you find the right fit.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — If you have closed yourself off to the rest of the world, it may be time to break free of all of those behavior patterns. Now you can see just how ridiculous this situation is and how it will never be enough. The year 2014 provides you the opportunity to align all of your career elements in proper order. A female is instrumental with positive changes. You can call your own shots at this time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Now that you have your eyes wide open, you can proceed with caution in the near future. You will not be a slave to those who have no regard for your physical or emotional well-being. Count to 10, and then clarify what’s going on with you and others. You’re making a major shift, and this could be quite a nail-biter. Remember, your opinion is valued by others.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — In the past year, there has been a tremendous focus on money. This has been a test to check how materialistic you could become or have become. Many of life’s simple pleasures do not revolve around cash-flow. If you were able to get through this without putting a dollar sign on everything, you will have an extremely prosperous year to come. If you’ve been keeping up with the Joneses, you may have some setbacks next year. Pay close attention to your thought process.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Oh, it may feel like you’re kicking everyone to the curb, but you’re really just clearing away all kinds of unwanted shallow chatter. The loved ones who matter the most will see this and make things right for you. The ones who don’t just make room for more positive individuals around you. Money is an important factor in the year to come. You have learned to respect it, and it will definitely respect you in the coming months.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — The coming year 2014 is your time to shine with planetary influences on your side. However, you may not be feeling it at this time. Finances may feel tight for many of you through the end of the year. It may be time to make some changes. Expect the unexpected with work and with windfalls shortly. At the 11th hour, everything will fall into place. Next year, there will be more prosperity than you had bargained for.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — New plans and new ideas that have been swimming around in your head will take shape and form in the months to come. It is worth it to take a leap of faith and allow things to unfold as they should. January is a “record month,” and it appears you’re starting the new year out right. This is a time when you are making the right connections.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You will find that this is a time to clear the air with old emotional ties. Try to do this in the most diplomatic way possible. You have had your fair share of losses in the recent past, and others may be trying to keep you in an old time zone. Break free with diplomacy and grace. Finances will be a highlight in the year to come, and you’ll finally have some solid ground to stand on.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Changes with work or your financial picture are the focus for 2014. Clear away any old karmic debt, and watch how the universe will bless you. You need to look forward to a brand-new day. Focus on the positive and avoid negative thoughts of those from your past. It just gets in your way of progress.
