Your Horoscope: Week of April 16-22, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of April 16-22, 2014
This Week: We will continue to feel the cosmic pressure of the Cardinal Grand Cross through the month of May, but it won’t be as severe as we have seen during the past week’s influence. Random acts of violence and clashing conflicts with the powers that be will continue during this lunar cycle, so be mindful of your surroundings and actions. These elements tend to have a powerful outcome when all is said and done, shifting us to a higher state of consciousness. However, moving through aspects like these can be a challenge. Stay safe, and do your best to radiate a message of peace.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Finances align in a positive way during this lunar cycle, putting you in the driver’s seat. A new love option will arrive for those single Aries. Follow through with invitations for social gatherings — you will be pleasantly surprised. Attached Aries find a second honeymoon energy arriving with their significant others this week. You can never put too much energy into love relations. Your outcome will be extremely favorable now.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — The past continues to resurface this week. Connections and information pour in faster than you can digest. Take mental notes, and do not react to all of this quite yet. When you have the rest of the story, you will be in a better position to work out all of the details. Midweek provides the perfect opportunity to get together with friends and family. A little bit of humor goes a long way for you this week.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Your focus is on family midweek when unexpected news arrives, possibly from a long-distance source. This situation provides you with a better understanding of the loved ones around you as well as yourself. Your love life begins to take shape and form, and you’re in a better place to embrace the possibilities of a long-term relationship than in previous months. Go for it.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — This week may start out on the bumpy side. Be mindful of that, if you’re considering hashing out any emotional baggage with a loved one. Even though so many issues appear to be hanging in limbo, you will only add a log to the existing bonfire of agitation. This is a great time to focus on you and your mundane tasks. After May 1, there are positive changes in the air for the better. Keep that in mind.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Your intuition is dead on during this lunar cycle. Keep your thoughts and feelings to yourself, and prepare your surroundings for the emotional changes that are to come. You have been dealing with another who has serious addictive tendencies. This is all about to shift, but a difficult struggle will erupt before all is said and done. Do not allow this outside influence to disrupt your home life. Another may not have the same element of patience with this matter as you have.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — A new baby may arrive shortly into your life, bringing all kinds of positive emotional energy to the scene. This could be a two-legged or four-legged bundle of love. Even though you may feel like your plate is full already, this does appear to be a positive addition to the mix. The lessons that are provided from this little soul are countless. Receive unconditional love whenever you can.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — High honors arrive in your place of employment during this time. You can see “the fit” with your personal life and professional life falling into place now. You’re developing connections now that will be long-term relations for years to come. This should provide you with comfort, considering how difficult the last year or two have been on you. Finances begin to take a turn for the better. Set some money aside for a rainy day.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Try to have some patience with those around you who are under fire. You may not be able to see what they are going through, and they may not be willing to go into detail about it, either. Bombarding them with questions or demanding explanations will only add fuel to the fire. This would not be the time to take a crowbar to any given situation. Step back and allow things to fall into place. Worry about what’s going on in your own back yard for now.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A health concern with an older female may have you on edge a bit early on this week. This also may give you time to consider your own longevity and path for wellness. To think that you may have “control” over this issue will only frustrate you more. Turn it over to your own personal “higher power” and allow this to heal itself. Midweek brings a surprise call from a friend or loved one from your past. You will find the information you receive quite helpful now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — A family member or loved one may need some extra help this week. Although your emotions or physical health may be running low, it’s best to find out exactly what you can do to simplify a problem for them. This may be less complicated than they imagine in the long run. The weekend provides you with a chance to “get away” emotionally or physically. Take advantage of offers presented to you now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Others may become very demanding with your time and energy this week. Pay close attention to those energy thieves, and try not to interact with them. They may become agitated for cutting off their energy source, so avoid the guilt that will follow. You need peace and quiet, at all costs. Your schedule is very full with positive aspects and creative financing — you don’t owe anyone an explanation.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You have been networking, and as a result of that, creative opportunities arrive for you to upgrade your current financial status. Follow up on all messages and attend all social gatherings. Not only will your career begin to flourish, but your social sector will begin to develop as well. New faces and fresh energy are available to you at this time. Concerns about the health of a male could be on the table this week. Take time out to check in on this individual.
