Your Horoscope: Week of March 19-25, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of March 19-25, 2014
This Week: The second new moon/blue moon of the year arrives March 30 in Aries. The first double new moon arrived in January, creating quite a stir. New moons are notorious for rapid waves of emotion, even more so than a full moon, on some occasions. This moon allows us the “me” time many of us have been craving for quite some time. Financial deadlocks that have been looming around for most of the winter will begin to break loose after the 30th as well. Enjoy!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — An opportunity to have a heart-to-heart talk with another arrives now with great results. You’re finally able to get to the bottom of some confusing issues and misdirected energy. Prominent people and organizations recognize you as a leader in your field this week. You may find special recognition from the media or powers that be. Jump at the chance to utilize these tools for your cause. Those who are not aware of your gifts will soon be enlightened.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Boundaries are key words for you to live by during this next week. You’re either finding yourself needing to set some with a friend or family member, or someone is trying to set them with you. Pay close attention to key words and behavior, and utilize your gifts to relieve some of this frustration. March 30 brings in the second new moon/blue moon of the year in active Aries. This allows you some much-needed “me” time you’ve been longing for.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Finances are improving after an outlay of cash for unexpected expenses. After March 30, you will see significant improvements. Midweek may bring unexpected news about or from someone in the past. You may have to act quickly on this to strike the chord you’re looking for. You have back-up from unusual sources, allowing you to move forward in the best possible light. Friendships and romance appear to be taking a turn for the better by week’s end.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may need to change your plans quickly as a result of an unforeseen event. This may start out feeling like a disappointment, but by week’s end, it will make perfect sense to you why you needed to alter your schedule. You are in the right place at the right time to benefit from your career, and you have made some great connections recently. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Positive recognition arrives in the workplace this week, putting your mind at ease. A female friend or family member may need your help with an emotional or financial aspect this week. Don’t expect her to be completely open about it. There may be an element of pride that stands in her way of asking for help. Listen carefully, then use this time to let her know you’ve got her back. Expect the unexpected.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — New opportunities for employment or clients arrive throughout the end of March. Concerns with the health or emotional wellness of another may have you weary early on this week. Make sure you are getting the rest and nutrition you need to carry on. It’s easy to get distracted during times like these and overlook our own importance. A love from your past may be weighing heavily on your mind at this time. Try to look toward the future instead.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Make plans for a weekend getaway to help clear your head and align your spirits. Romance takes priority over everything else this week. You’re in a good place to move to the next level with your significant other. Your charm and wit will not be overlooked, and others find you captivating at this time. A loss of business or a client late last year will not be an issue for you now. Additional revenue or new opportunities are on the horizon.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Get out and about and stretch those legs a bit. This will break up the stagnant energy you’ve been feeling lately. Try not to let another bully you with fear tactics this week. If someone insists on pushing the limits with you, ensure them you will not submit to their demands. Once this is clear, they will not have the energy to follow through. You will be at the top of your game by week’s end.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Finances rock during this time frame, so set some money aside to pamper yourself in the near future. Plans change quickly without much notice, but there may be a good reason for it. The unforeseen problems that arrive without much warning make it clear that divine intervention is at work here. Try not to focus on lack at this time. Look at all of the signs — they are pointing you in a new direction.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Your social life begins to expand during this time frame, which is a welcomed sign of relief. You have been so overwhelmed with a business element that there has not been much time for friends and loved ones. Even if it’s just a night out on the town, the efforts you take will be received in the best possible light, allowing you to move forward now. Make return phone calls and keep up with business ventures midweek.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Although this can be a difficult task for the loving, giving Aquarian, you need to put yourself first at this time. Watch that you do not get into a tangle with a loved one or friend this week. Pressures are mounting, and you may not have the tools to deal with these emotions properly. This would peak around March 30. Surround yourself with tried and true individuals who have your back at all costs. Next week, you will see the money pouring in from all directions.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Your intuition is finely tuned during this time, allowing you to have the upper hand in a delicate situation. Try not to throw all of your cards out on the table just yet. Hold some information back until after the next new moon March 30, as financial aspects begin to change for the better after that date. More information will be revealed to verify your gut instincts. Use this to benefit your long-term goals.
