Your Horoscope: Week of Jan. 22-28, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Jan. 22-28, 2014
This Week: The super new moon arrives Jan. 30 in Aquarius, making this month one to remember. Aquarius provides the solutions to long-standing problems with creative accents and flair. We’re experiencing two new moons this month, making this almost as dynamic as a blue moon, when we experience two full moons. The difference is that underlying, hidden influences are brought to light with opportunities to resolve them in a gentle fashion. This element brings subconscious emotions to light with clarity. Then, it provides the ability to dismantle the current thought process and rebuild it with limited frustration. The days are getting longer, and it won’t be long until spring is here. Enjoy.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You are wired and amped, which is helping you get things accomplished now. This newfound energy creates a feeling of relief within many areas of your life. Finances begin to improve, and you’re able to set some money aside for a rainy day. Resist the temptation to splurge now. Wait until after February to make a major purchase. You will find a better deal and a better fit for your needs.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Romance seems to be getting quite complicated this week. Try not to stir up any more drama than need be now. Someone else could overreact to your behavior, so keep a low profile. Next week, your intentions are received with crystal clarity. Then, you would be in a better place to make your move.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Eliminating bad habits can be a little more challenging for the twins to deal with than some of the other signs. However, this may be a really good time to take a look in the mirror and honestly ask yourself what areas could use some improvement. The planets favor change for you now. As your energy levels begin to lift, you will wonder what took you so long to get in sync. Celebrate a loved one’s accomplishments this weekend.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Love options are laid out right in front of you, and you can’t seem to see the forest through the trees. Someone you have known for a while steps up and says they care. Stop running from love or friendship and dive in head-first. There is no reason to sit by the side of the pool and put your pinkie toe in. The water is not as cold as you think it is.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You receive a lucky break or a lead this week that favors your long-term goals. All eyes are on you, so allow yourself to be seen in the best possible light. Changes in your appearance will not go unnoticed. Even though recent challenges may have you a little weak in the knees, fake it until you make it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A close call with a friend or loved one’s health may have you feeling uneasy for the first part of this week. As you move through this, you will be able to recognize how important this person has become to you. Meantime, you’re able to focus on your own health and mortality. Exciting new business opportunities begin to pour in this week. These aspects enable you to mix business with pleasure.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You are filled with energy, and your sense of humor is coming back with a vengeance. Loved ones begin to see the “old you” and appear to want to spend more time with your positive influences. An opportunity for expansion and financial gain will be arriving shortly. Concentrate on your appearance — when you look good, you feel good as well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may be experiencing concern about the choices and actions another has made recently. The lack of confidence with this individual is extremely confusing to you. Unfortunately, these aspects are not contagious. You can’t make somebody drink out of your glass and expect miracles to happen. With that said, concentrate on your own goals, dreams and ambitions. This is a great time to launch a creative project and get it going. Do not fear the outcome — let nature take its course.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You finally feel like crawling out of the cave you have built for yourself this winter and moving around with the human race again. Even though this was a difficult winter, you are emerging with a new sense of self and knowledge of who you are and what you want out of life. This influence allowed for a tremendous amount of growth. Take your newfound knowledge and apply it to your daily activities. You may be surprised at your outcome.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You’re feeling more like yourself as the week begins. Energy levels begin to shift, and you’re accomplishing more now than you have for most of the winter months. Look through items and articles that are no longer useful to you and pass them along to those in need. This will create a shift with your financial aspects for the better. It is time to get together with friends and family members and catch up on the scoop. New creative influences emerge from this activity.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — As the sun moves into your sign, legal documents and financial reconstruction begin. You breathe a sigh of relief as these aspects begin to fall into place. You have been so stressed out with financial concerns that you may have put a strain on your health. Try to reconnect with a healthy diet and some light exercise. You will notice the emotional improvements that will follow with these actions. If you don’t take care of you, nobody else will, either.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Now that all of your legal mumbo-jumbo is in place, it may be time to look at your next venture with some enthusiasm. Check out different locations for home, work or business. There may be a need for your services in a fresh new arena, or a new job opportunity can arrive outside of your comfort zone. Look at all of your options, then make your move. You will be pleased with the outcome.
