Your Horoscope: Week of May 21-27, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of May 21-27, 2014
This Week: The challenging Cardinal Grand Cross has just about completed its journey of confusion. Even though this planetary influence has been a frustrating one, it has also offered opportunities to grow emotionally as well as spiritually. We may experience a sensation of fogginess, or a cloudy thought process, throughout the week. Be patient — this will clear up completely with the new moon in Gemini May 28.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You’re able to put many frustrating outside influences aside this week and concentrate on your own ambitions. Set some boundaries, and focus on your long-term goals. Expansion with career arrives this month. The word is out that you’re the person to get the job done. Others notice your positive input.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Financial challenges are a temporary element that will resolve themselves with diligence. A romantic partner can offer some wise advice regarding your personal connections. Be open, and allow those around you to provide you with insight. If you can take a time-out to digest all of the information, a solution to a long-standing problem will arrive shortly.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — An impromptu gathering will provide you with new connections for love as well as business. Make sure you are stepping out there and accepting invitations to socialize this week. Be cautious of the feet and knees during this time. You cannot afford to be laid up with this hectic schedule arriving.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Good news regarding home and property arrives. You are able to get those nagging projects out of the way and expand upon your current element. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. You will find the bargain of a lifetime or sell something for which you no longer have any use. Save some money for a rainy day.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Changes within your current home environment will create some lucky shifts within your personal life. Pick up a book about feng shui and find a way to create sacred space within your living quarters. The stagnation you have felt recently will break loose. All eyes are on you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Time is going by so fast, there just hasn’t been any “personal time” to catch up on those annoying tasks. Try not to beat yourself up over this aspect. Midweek, your energy levels will begin to rise, and you will be able to catch up on your mundane tasks. In addition to that, you will find the time to socialize a bit as well. A night out on the town will provide some much-needed humor.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Get all of your annoying tasks out of the way early this week. There will be plenty of travel and long-distance communication throughout September. This could leave you feeling a bit overwhelmed, if you are not prepared. Take extra care with your home, property and pets. Make sure competent people are involved. Ask for backup, if need be.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Pay very close attention to those nearest and dearest to your heart this week. Outside influences could be creating such a distraction that you are not aware of what’s going on in your own back yard. Health issues may become a concern for a family member or a friend. Pay very close attention to what someone may “not” be saying, and note any unusual behavior. You may save someone from a physical breakdown.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Powerful financial activity puts you in the driver’s seat. Now would be a great time to look at your long-term financial goals. You may also be in a position to make a major purchase. Try not to complicate this element with fear or stress. Trust that the universe has a plan for you, and you will not fail. Fear only creates more conflict in the grand scheme of things.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — If you have not made a shift with your work environment, expect opportunities to arrive throughout the next three months. The stagnation with career you have been experiencing will break loose shortly. The powers that be will lead you in the right direction and will be able to value your gifts. Follow your dreams, hopes and ambitions this fall. The universe will not steer you wrong.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — An unexpected treasure arrives from an unusual source this week. Go for it! This may have some long-term benefits as well as sentimental value for you or for someone close to you. You are full of surprises this week, and everyone is elated with your energy levels. Take extra precautions while traveling this month. With all of this additional activity arriving, you do not have time for a transportation setback. Be cautious with children and pets.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Throw out the book and go with your gut. Not everything goes as expected, and you need to be in a place where you can improvise quickly. Your sharp wit can get you through some frustrating obstacles. You have the ability to help another see things clearly — if you listen, instead of drawing conclusions without all of the facts.
