Your Horoscope: Week of March 26-April 1, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of March 26-April 1, 2014
This Week: I spoke about the new moon/blue moon arriving March 30 in Aries in last week’s column. However, I would like to accentuate the pros and cons of this element this week. The new moon is in Aries. This will create a tremendous amount of energy and allow us to be productive with annoying tasks that have been on the back burner for quite a while. That’s the upside to it. Considering it is in conjunction with Uranus, it could also lend a little chaos to present situations. Sometimes Uranus can just shake the fleas off the dog and leave things intact and in a better position once the work is done. Be mindful of travel, communication or unexpected disruptions, and all will go well. In other words, good or bad, expect the unexpected.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Quality time with a pet or child boosts your spirits. Unexpected news arrives from a past connection, providing you with a new angle. As your work schedule begins to align, put in extra effort with your personal life this week. Avoiding it because of your own fear of loss will not make things any better. In fact, this could complicate issues even more. Watch the tendency to judge a book by its cover. Still waters run “very deep.”
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — A major breakthrough arrives regarding a complicated financial element. It turns out this wasn’t going to be as difficult as it was previously presented to you. Once you are through this short-term dilemma, you will find the “big picture” is about to reveal itself to you. Opportunities for career advancement arrive during this time. Think outside the box. It’s time to celebrate!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Take one step at a time, and try not to break through the starting gate before the bell rings. You have crossed the imaginary finish line over and over with your deepest, darkest fears. As a result of this, you have not made much room for a positive outcome. Scrub the corners of your mind, and even your physical space if you have to bring on the clarity you deserve. At week’s end, the stars begin to shine in your corner.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Be mindful of whom you communicate with at this time and what is being discussed. An element of self-doubt is creating a black cloud hanging over your head in an unfamiliar manner. This may be the result of negative speak from others. You deserve to see yourself in the productive and prosperous place in this world. Once you can remove the negative influences from your realm, you are on a roll. Midweek brings positive developments with your career. Shine on.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Something has been creating quite a stir within a friend or family member’s emotional state. Although normally they are more than willing to share their conflicts with you, at this time, they have gone within. Try not to take this personally, and provide some comic relief instead to distract them. When all is said and done, they may be able to share their deepest, darkest fears with you. By week’s end, things are looking up for the better.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Romantic influences are playful and mischievous. Make sure you can clear your slate at a moment’s notice to indulge in life’s simple little pleasures. You may need to make some decisions about your long-term path with love, but for now, you’re gathering all of the information you need to hit a home run. Home and property take on a new shape and form at this time.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — A pleasant surprise arrives surrounding the purchase or sale of property during this lunar cycle. Count the money and keep the change for now. Your long-term goals are beginning to take shape and form now. Try to see yourself in the best possible situation. As a result of this energy, you will accomplish your goals. Take some time out to reflect on the progress you have made. Once you can celebrate the accomplishments in life, the rest is a piece of cake.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Your personal life has been put on the back burner for way too long now. It is time you take the initiative to make this happen. Do not set premature boundaries with a romantic prospect. Just allow this to unfold one day at a time. No one will force you to explain all of your lifelong ambitions, unless you allow this to become an issue. Fun with friends, music or athletic activities arrive on the weekend. Accept invitations to socialize.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Positive media or referrals from someone higher up arrives at this time. This allows those who are “not in the know” to become aware of all of your accomplishments. This also expands your career sector and provides personal growth in all arenas in life. As this begins to take place, make sure you pay it forward and acknowledge those who have believed in you all along. They will be eternally grateful.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You are past the point of dealing with all of the heaviness that has been draped over you in the past month. Go within and try to discover where this is coming from and what exactly you can do to change the situation at hand. It is not up to everyone else to do the work for you. Sometimes, you need to roll up your sleeves and get the job done yourself. You have become concerned about the health and welfare of a female close to you. See what you can do to help her out.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You may be feeling as though you want to flee from a painful situation or “get out of town” permanently. Try not to let the negative effects of others break your spirit. You may be saying to yourself: “I have been through this lesson over and over. Why is this reoccurring now?” Well, someone else is trying to learn a valuable lesson from you the hard way, and I hate to say it, “you’re the teacher again.” By week’s end, you will have the solitude to heal your wounds in a timely manner.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Romantic aspects become a priority during this time. You’re beginning to align yourself with connections with more depth and character. An unexpected delay turns out to be a blessing in disguise. Try not to become too frustrated with all of this, and allow the cards to fall as they will. In the end, these all align in your favor, as long as you refrain from saying, “I told you so.” Midweek brings in an opportunity for additional cash or a secondary income. Be open to all opportunities.
