Your Horoscope: Week of March 12-18, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of March 12-18, 2014
This Week: A beautiful full moon arrives in Virgo March 16, boosting energy and providing the opportunity to get things accomplished. All of those little annoying tasks that have sat on the back burner will now become a top priority and cleared off the slates once and for all. The weekend will provide harmonious social settings as well as humorous antidotes to balance this work, making this week truly a prefect mix of work and play. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Feelings of tension and anxiety begin to brew early on this week. It seems as though you can’t quite put your finger on the source of this aggravation. However, as the week progresses, you will be able to pinpoint these aspects and clear them out of your path. Deep-seated fears of romantic discord or failure to obtain your long-term goals are unfounded. Your spirit and energy begin to lift. This week marks a turning point for you for the better.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Don’t feed the fire with a family member now, or you may find this aspect biting you in the behind in the weeks to come. Sometimes people find comfort in a familiar situation, or what may seem to be familiar. But usually, the dynamic is not the same. Be cautious of comparing your heartache or old wounds with another, especially when the circumstances do not coincide. Every situation is unique within itself. Keep a low profile.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Changes within your home environment prove to be a positive influence on you. An element of remorse may creep up on you this week. Perhaps your behavior has not been up to par. Take some time to extend yourself a little more with your loved ones. You will never have any regrets if you make your feelings known. The weekend promises a mix of business and pleasure. New leads and opportunities are on the way.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Once you initiate an idea for a project, expect to be on top of it from start to finish. Even though there may be some help with this aspect, those around you may need a lot of encouragement to follow through. An old romantic aspect will resurface with a vengeance at this time. You will have all of the information you need to put this to rest once and for all. A feeling of relief will follow.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Sometimes the worst thing we can do is assume we know how another person may feel about an incident or become certain we know what they are thinking. If you have been speculating on the thought process of another, it would serve you well to retrace your steps and not assume anything. Unless you have been given an opportunity to discuss a concern of yours with this individual, you won’t know the truth — and you may be surprised as to what the truth really is. Meantime, don’t allow another to feed this uncertainty. Misery doesn’t love company, it demands it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Finances begin to improve during this lunar cycle giving you a well-deserved feeling of relief. You are removing negative habits and influences from your system. This may take some getting used to before it really sinks in. By week’s end, you will begin to feel the benefits of this aspect on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. Your energy level will increase until then. Fake it until you make it.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Highly charged emotional situations will surround you this week, so you will need to keep your thinking cap on in the process. Take extra care that you do not overlook an important document or financial responsibility as a result of this. As we move in to week’s end, things will begin to smooth out and allow you time to get together with friends and family and relax a bit. Remember to breathe.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — An opportunity for career advancement arrives during this lunar cycle. Take advantage of this positive trend. Someone may be trying to drag you into their own personal dilemmas. However, it would be best if you stay out of the personal matters of friends or family this week. The more you try to “fix” something, the more complicated it will become. Enjoy the outdoors and your significant other now. Life is short.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — If you feel left out of the loop, perhaps it’s because you put yourself there to begin with. Extend yourself and get back in the mix. You’re the social butterfly of the zodiac, but lately, you just haven’t been feeling it. This next week will open doors for a new career or expansion on a current situation. New people, places and activities will evolve from this situation. Go for it!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — If you have recently found yourself riddled with anxiety, expect this week to have a soothing effect on you. Everything is out in the open and you have an opportunity to resolve an old frustrating issue. Expansion with career and finance put a spring in your step. Those with jealousy and envy may not wish to celebrate with you. However, there are many loved ones ready to sing your praises at this time. Surround yourself with those of that mindset.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — An upgrade with your financial sector will be arriving in the months to come. A love interest appears to be right under your nose, and you may not be able to read it quite right at this time. Accept invitations to social gatherings and allow new relationships to develop. People around you are willing to share. Remember it is OK to receive love and affection.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Shocking or unexplained long-distance communication may have you on the edge of your seat this week. You’re wondering how to handle the information that is evident and what you’re going to do with it. Relax, take a deep breath, and know your loved ones need your support. You will be the foundation everyone will need to lean on. You can collapse later.
