Your Horoscope: Week of Jan. 1-6, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Jan. 1-6, 2014
This Week: Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome, 2014. The new moon arrives in Capricorn New Year’s Day. Capricorn’s influence encourages us to move forward with a steady pace. This is a great day to take an overview of what you have left behind and where you are headed. The year 2014 provides us with new challenges and opportunities to expand our personal growth. Set some time aside on this day and review what your goals are for the coming year. Then, visualize them into fruition.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — The New Year will prove to be a very lucky time, especially with financial aspects. The perfect fit career-wise will arrive. Your hard work and efforts, as well as your talent, are noticed by others. The media take a shine to you at this time, invoking your 15 minutes of fame — and then some. This year will also align you with people from the past who will prove to be very enlightening.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — This year provides plenty of options for change. However, you need to be willing to broaden your own personal landscape a bit as well. A stagnation with your personal life that appeared to linger throughout 2013 will break loose in the coming months. You are a person of habit by nature. Stepping outside of your personal comfort zone will enhance the chances of growth and development, personally and professionally. Enjoy!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — The new year starts out with a bang as personal and professional aspects form a stronger alliance during the first quarter. Opportunities for travel are indicated as well during the spring and summer months. The last two years have been extremely difficult with emotional or physical challenges. You may have noticed this begin to lift somewhat as fall turned into winter, but the year 2014 will bring these aspects to light in the most positive way. Enjoy.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Family and friends will be at the top of your priority list in the coming year. Good news arrives in the form of weddings, babies and health issues that are on the mend. It’s easy to see what a blessing the little things are after a challenging 2013 has removed itself from your orbit. Summer marks a time when upgrades with work and finances are evident. Reap in the blessings.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — The new year brings emotional growth, but not without its fair share of challenges. Your mission is to identify how the other person may be receiving your conduct as well as your code of ethics. If you have been challenged in this arena before, there is obviously a reason the universe is throwing you a rerun. To become more empathetic of others as well as maintaining boundaries for your own mental well-being, learn from your past mistakes and soldier on. Many opportunities for advancement will present themselves in the year to come.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Self-employment or self-contracted work is highlighted in the year to come. Slowly, but surely, you emerge from debt and begin to see yourself in the black again financially. With these opportunities you begin to immerse yourself in new and exciting social contacts. Highly-charged alliances begin to take shape and form within the 2014 calendar year, and with that said, you can count on your social dance card to be full. Enjoy.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — The coming new year allows opportunities to put old, worn-out heartache and grudges behind you and start fresh. It does you no good to hang on to the past, and the ability to forgive makes room for growth and development. Finances may have been a little spread thin on and off during 2013. However, trust that you will recover during 2014. In fact, you will begin to see major improvements in the summer months ahead. Changes within your personal life will transpire during the coming year as well. Relationships will end and new ones begin within the next year, promising positive results.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — The year kicks off with you holding the competitive edge within your workplace and personal life. Even though it may not be evident right at that very moment in time, aspects work behind the scenes aligning for you and allow you to strike when the iron is hot to get results. Legal aspects become highly beneficial in the year to come as well as opportunities with new love options. The past year had you on an emotional roller coaster not knowing which way was up. Slowly, but surely, the fog lifts in your favor.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — The new year begins with an emotional or more vulnerable version of you than you are normally familiar with. However, this is OK. Sometimes we need to retrace our steps and resolve an aspect that has been placed on the back burner for a while. You will witness this energy shift quickly toward the end of January, when legal aspects take a dynamic turn for the better. Finances improve greatly this year, and the opportunity for travel exists as well. Romantic options with solid foundations arrive this year after a long dry spell for many Sagittarius friends. This will be a year to remember.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — The new year provides you with the finishing touches on an emotional or physical healing process that you have been attempting to work through. It may seem as though out of nowhere you begin to feel lighter and more at ease. You’re able to see all of the progress that you’ve made in the past year on a personal level. This speaks volumes as to whom you have become, regardless of the challenges you’ve been presented with. Home and property will be a top priority in the year ahead. Changes within your current abode or even a relocation will be on the forefront during this time. Upgrades within your career sector will greatly improve the quality of your lifestyle in the year to come.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You may become a temporary caregiver to a family member or significant other as they move through an emotional or physical healing process at some point this year. You’re up for the challenge and have the experience to participate in this process with ease. However, make sure you are taking some personal time to rejuvenate yourself in the mix of this as well. If you’ve allowed yourself to become a hermit in 2013, now is the time to step out of your shell and take some risks in the romantic arena. This is a year when you can align the perfect love connection, but it isn’t going to happen if you’re hiding under your bed. Go for it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — This year marks a turning point where you will be addressing the conflicts that have been brewing in your personal life over the past two years. You can no longer look the other way and expect things to resolve themselves. In fact, those actions have only ignited some of the conflicts even more. Blood is thicker than water, and water cannot provide a solid foundation. Once you put your foot down, you will begin to see that peace and harmony were never all that far away to begin with. Finances begin to fall into place this year, and your career sector shows growth and development on a grander scale in the year 2014.
