Your Horoscope: Week of Feb. 12-18, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Feb. 12-18, 2014
This Week: Well, blow me down, Olive! In spite of our journey through Mercury retrograde, we have a fabulous week ahead. The full moon in Leo arrives Feb. 14 to make this a Valentine’s Day to remember. Leo’s grand energy will support us in demonstrating love and gratitude toward all of those whom we hold close to our hearts. Express your depth, and allow this to be a time to shine. Remember, Valentine’s Day is not just about a significant other, but also a day to expand that love to everyone. With a positive vibration like this, it easily becomes a contagious epidemic. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Take a time out of your busy schedule to connect with those of like mind and spirit. Blow off some steam before you get in the trenches with more pressing issues. Later on this week, you can face and focus on the serious matters at hand, as opposed to the outside influences that appear to be tampering with your life. You — and only you — are responsible for your own good health and happiness. Take that to heart.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — You may need to make a quick decision about a legal matter or help another with a similar situation shortly. Use your trump cards with connections you have made in the past to solidify this deal. When all is said and done, everything will work out for the greatest good. Someone admires you for your kindness and determination. By week’s end, you have a plan to incorporate the weak and the strong. All is well that ends well.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Your career sector begins to flourish, and your ability to manifest what you desire is at your fingertips during this lunar cycle. Avoid the self-sabotaging element you are used to using out of fear, and do not allow another to put you in that mind-set. Personal relations may need a bit of polishing, but you’re on the right track. You have worked long and hard to obtain this gift from the universe. Do you deserve it? Absolutely.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Finally, you are receiving the recognition you have busted your butt to acquire. Try not to focus too much as to why there were delays regarding that matter. Instead, understand that everything worked out in perfect timing, as it should. There are no more mysteries left to reveal (at least for this week). Why don’t you take a day off to try to relax a bit? You will be back in the game soon enough.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Career opportunities arrive that could be a perfect fit for you. Keep your eye out for upgrades during this lunar cycle. You may need to protect an individual from bad behavior or slander this week. Or, you may be misrepresented by a nosy individual who could be willing to put words in your mouth. Go behind the scenes, and make sure your loved ones are properly supported. By next week, this will all blow over.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — It may be time to get out and about with a friend who strikes your funny bone, to break up the recent monotony of life. Expansion with business and offers of work begin to arrive during this time. Stop stressing out, and take the solid route for now. Meantime, build your private goals and ambitions to the magnitude that the universe is providing. You will feel more secure if you have something to rely on. By week’s end, money sticks to the bottom of your shoe.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — With your quick action and timing, you are able to fix a potential hazard in your home or work environment. Try to use a little diplomacy when you navigate around others. Some may mean well, and it appears no one really provided them with the proper tools to begin with. Let it go, and try to use praise instead of reprimanding them. In the end, all will have learned from their mistakes, and with any luck, you have learned a thing or two as well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Keep your eye open for new opportunities within your career sector. Now would be a great time to make lemonade out of lemons. You can’t jump the gun and assume all will fail if everything isn’t perfect. Sometimes the greatest lessons arrive with some of life’s biggest challenges. By week’s end, you will know exactly who your allies are. Make sure you acknowledge their presence.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Legal matters, documents and paperwork begin to finalize with great results during this lunar cycle. You may need to have a heart-to-heart talk with a family member or loved one about a child or pet. Maybe you need to pick up additional responsibility in this arena or else make it clear that changes need to be made for the greater good. In either case, it will allow others to plan accordingly. Romance begins to evolve in a more productive pace. Keep it up.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Love options become apparent during this lunar cycle. Finances begin to break loose for the better. You are able to start putting away some money now, instead of robbing Peter to pay Paul. As a result, you may feel the urge to splurge a bit and treat yourself to an unexpected pleasure. Take your time, and choose wisely. This is a long-term commitment.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Romantic options are becoming available; be open and receptive to affection. Take your time regarding a business venture during this lunar cycle. Try not to close the deal so quickly until you have seen everything and the fine print involved. You may need to restructure a few things and form a stronger alliance with a soon-to-be long-term partnership. A pesky “blow-hard” may be trying to get in the mix of things that they know nothing about. Don’t waste your time and energy entertaining this type of nonsense.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may be pushing yourself through an overwhelming burden. Scheduling conflicts or pure exhaustion may have you on your last nerve. Take a big step back and breathe for a moment. When all is said and done, you have made the right choice to re-evaluate your decisions. Vehicles may be adding additional conflicts early on this week. By week’s end, you find a mountain was made out of a molehill.
