Your Horoscope: Week of May 7-13, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 7-13, 2014
This Week: The full moon in Scorpio May 14 provides plenty of passion, creating a strong and purposeful influence on all of your endeavors. We are still moving through the Cardinal Grand Cross throughout the month of May. However, it will not be as intense as it was during mid-April’s peak of this alignment. The good news is Mars ( which has been retrograde for a while now) is going direct May 19. This opens the lines of communication to flow more freely as well as removing the “stalemate” vibration that has been lingering for a while. In other words? Things are looking up.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You may be looking at a new transportation device or possible travel during this lunar cycle. Legal documents begin to align in your favor. You have the competitive edge with a personal matter or career path that you may not be able to pinpoint quite yet. However, the month of May has plenty of surprises in store for you that boost your emotional immune system to the highest power. Enjoy!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Legal matters are on the forefront for you or a loved one in the coming months. If these elements are affecting a loved one, it would be best to lie low and not get too entangled in this element. You can offer emotional support, but don’t fuel the fire. Influential opportunities arrive through your career sector throughout the month of May. Activate these while the irons are still hot.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Accolades arrive from the powers that be within your career sector during this time. Opportunities to travel will also be aligning, so take advantage of these aspects that provide the perfect balance of business and pleasure. Romantic ties are less complicated now than they have been in the recent past. You finally have the emotional clarity you’ve been searching for.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Hostile energies surround your neighborhood or family members. This would be a great time to just go within and get things accomplished that you have put on the back burner. You do not need to get in the middle and be the peacekeeper. Your words and wisdom will fall upon deaf ears. By week’s end, you can surround yourself with humorous individuals who will allow your spirits to soar.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Self-employed or self-contracted work provides additional income in the weeks to come. It’s best not to put all of your eggs in one basket. This may be a good time to sit down and hash out a schedule or a solution to a problem that really has not been addressed and should have been a long time ago. Make an effort to move through this with diplomacy and discover what works out for everyone involved. Otherwise, this could end up being decided for you, and you may not like the outcome.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Travel plans for you or a family member may have you a bit uneasy early on this week. Take a deep breath; all will work out just fine in the long run. A past issue or past love will attempt to revive itself this week. Go slowly and carefully, and try to figure out what the missing piece is here. Retrace your steps. Was an element missing from the previous encounter that may be present now? Look carefully. If you notice true growth and development, go for it. You won’t be sorry.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Complications with children or family won’t magically disappear unless you address this head on. This may be as a result of an outside influence. Perhaps they have complaints about your way of handling these situations. Remember, if this has been an issue in the past, it will become problematic in the future. You may be settling for something that is familiar to you and not necessarily what’s best for you. Slow down and process this all out before you jump into anything.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Opportunities for social engagements arrive that can open the doors for you romantically or financially. You may not feel like following through with each and every one of these commitments. However, I strongly advise you to partake in as many as you can. Previous emotional heartaches may be wearing you down a bit, but that’s to be expected. Slowly, but surely, you will rise again, like the phoenix from the ashes.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A financial windfall allows you the opportunity to pamper yourself emotionally or physically. You will be forming an alliance with a powerful individual in the weeks to come — the perfect fit of financial success and creativity. New options, locations and romantic aspects arrive with perfect timing. Present yourself in the best possible light. All eyes are on you now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may be a little uneasy with how you handled a personal or professional alignment in the recent past. You’re still confused as to which way to proceed with this and not certain if doors are open or shut for you on every turn. Only time will tell. For now, it’s best to focus on the mundane tasks you have been dragging your feet to accomplish. Sometimes those moments provide the strongest clarity.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — It appears you have hit the jackpot, and you may not even know it yet. The stars are aligning in your favor to make the most of your financial and personal success. Follow through with every contact, and don’t be afraid of the outcome. You deserve your day in the sun, just like everyone else. Now is your time to shine.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Try not to make waves in the next week regarding your work environment. Many things going on over your head have not been brought to light yet. You do not want to become the focal point of another’s misdirected anger. Lie low and allow this all to work itself through. When everything is out in the open, you will reap the benefits of your hard work and effort.
