Your Horoscope: Week of May 14-20, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 14-20, 2014
This Week: This is a week that offers major breakthroughs with planetary influences. The full moon in Scorpio invites passionate and erotic vibrations May 14 as well as the opportunity for secrets to come to light. If you have nothing to hide? This shouldn’t be a problem for you. Endings or loss will be evident as well. However, it appears that these will arrive with a sigh of relief as opposed to a shock factor in most cases. Mars moves direct May 19, removing the stagnant energy that many of you may have felt for a while now. The Grand Cardinal Cross begins to diminish, and its dynamic elements will fizzle by month end. Relief is the key word for this week — relief from pain, relief from suffering, relief from emotional bondage.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — There is a healing energy working within your physical and emotional space at this time. Try to receive this openly even though it may feel a little unfamiliar to you now. Life provides you with solutions to a long-standing problem now. Accept these with open arms and allow this knowledge to surround you and flow through you. By week’s end, you have the clarity you need to move forward with no regrets, Aries.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — An unusual legal matter or document may have you spinning your wheels early on this week. Try not to become too overwhelmed by all of this activity. There is only so much you can do to change the course of events with another. Trust that this will all turn out for the best in the long run. The health of a female friend or family member may be on your mind at this time. Take care of yourself first, Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — This may be an excellent time to “kiss and make up” with your significant other or a valuable friend. You have not been yourself, and as a result of that you may not have presented yourself in the best possible light the last few weeks. Hiding your head in the sand and pretending like nothing happened will not resolve the issue. Facing it head on will ensure the best results. By week’s end things appear to fall back into place, Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Romantic aspects are on your list of priorities this week. Situations that have been a bit “strained” start to smooth out and return to normal. Humor appears to be the best antidote. Even though it has been “missing in action” for the last week or so, it arrives with great timing now. Try not to put yourself back into any more stressful situations at least for now. It may be best to avoid negative, outside influences at this time, Cancer.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — This is a great time to get a second opinion with your career. Co-workers are more than willing to help you solve a problem and advance your long-term goals. Your personal life may need a little more attention at this time. Extend invitations for an impromptu gathering this weekend. Mixing business and pleasure works out in your favor, Leo.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Those around you could be quite emotional or overwhelmed this week, with circumstances that are out of their control.Try not to take this behavior personally and set a boundary with how much garbage you’re willing to accept. Midweek, things begin to take a turn for the better. Career options arrive with improvements toward your long term goals. Put your best foot forward at this time, Virgo.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You may have found yourself wanting something or someone you couldn’t have until someone else was interested. Now that the other “buyer” has been removed from the picture, emotionally or physically, you’re noticing the cracks and flaws of said “property” you once thought you couldn’t live without. It’s best to be honest with yourself in situations like these, if the shoes are pinching the toes? Take them back, Libra.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — The focus is on home and property at this time, and positive developments begin to align now. The perfect fit will arrive to accommodate everyone involved, which brings a sigh of relief. You were able to smooth over a heartache with a loved one, and those around you are following your lead. An upgrade with employment is in the wings as well. Enjoy, Scorpio.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — It has been difficult to concentrate on your work because of emotional issues or family complications. However, work is actually the best place to channel your energy during this time. An offer to boost your career arrives before month’s end, so take advantage of this blessing as it arrives. Finances and unexpected windfalls put your mind at ease. A final ending provides relief, Sag.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Complications may arrive in the home when another may attempt to change the dynamic of your environment too quickly. It’s best if you just allow everyone to align within their own timeline as opposed to forcing the issue to appease another. The sale or purchase of property is prominent now. Take your time, Capricorn.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Past connections provide new opportunities with a creative or personal goal you are attempting to achieve. You have a major backer that you didn’t realize existed. However, they will be thrown into your orbit shortly. Keep your eyes and ears open for these elements to appear. Romance has been on the back burner for way too long now. Time to shift that into gear as well, Aquarius.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — The focus this week is on home and property, Sprucing up the current residence or looking for something new. This will provide you with that little energy boost you’ve been searching for. Once this falls into place, you will be amazed at how much better you will feel. Romance takes on a new shape and form now. You’re more confident with your decisions in life by week’s end, Pisces.
