Your Horoscope: Week of June 18-24, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 18-24, 2014
This Week: The universe is a complicated element that has its difficulties being properly diagnosed. Sometimes, the “everything happens for a reason” answer isn’t always easiest to choke down. It’s OK to become frustrated for a moment or two while we navigate through a difficult planetary climate. We have two more weeks to move through this Mercury Retrograde. Make the most of it. We will have some quiet time to regroup after July 2.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Unusual acts and strange occurrences will be evident this week. Keep your head low. Try not to feed in to fear or challenge another who is not emotionally balanced. This is a fabulous time to offer yourself to the community in some way, shape or form. Romance is highlighted.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Shifts and changes occur within your housing during this next lunar cycle. You may find you’re no longer interested in living in the same geographic location, or you may be considering a total makeover of your existing humble abode. In either case, you will be inspired to embrace the transformation that will occur with grace and ease. When all is said and done, there is no place like home.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Unexpected surprises touch your heart this week. Accolades for a job well done land in your lap as you accelerate in your field. A gathering with friends and family turns out to be a grand success. You notice favorable movement with your loved ones around you as well. Romantic elements are in alignment.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — A family gathering could start a new foundation of love and expression. We all get overwhelmed with daily tasks and activities, and the time keeps rolling by. Precious moments are few and far between, and life is very short. A healing energy surrounds your home and family at this time. Take advantage of this aspect.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re beginning to feel more at ease with decisions you’ve recently made regarding your career and personal life. We all tend to fear an unknown destination, until we arrive there. Then, and only then, do we see the positive impact the shifts and changes create in our lives. Midweek offers a time to clear the air with a loved one. The outcome is a successful one.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — An answer to a prayer arrives with career shortly. Upgrades with financial gain allow you to feel relieved and refreshed. You’re coming into an extremely busy time. Make sure you’re taking time out to rest and regroup. An unexpected loss may leave a friend or loved one spinning. Offer your love and support.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — What exactly are your fears with romantic connections? To begin with, there are no guarantees in life, and love isn’t something that can be controlled. Try not to punish yourself and sabotage an opportunity for happiness. With love comes a tremendous amount of responsibility. However, the payoff is gold.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You may be experiencing some regret regarding a recent decision. However, you need to get your feet wet first with this before you run in the other direction. Once you see the doors are opening, there is no reason not to walk right through them. Romance becomes a focus this week as well — passion begins to kick up a notch or two.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Romance is not necessarily a substitute for all of the responsibilities you’ve had on your plate recently; however, it is a start. If you can allow someone else to let you feel good or respect you, then it becomes easier to love and honor yourself. No more room for self-punishment in your life exists — delete it!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Summer has finally arrived, and business begins to flourish. You have the “eye” for the perfect fit in your work environment, and others are recognizing your gifts. Unexpected public acclaim or recognition arrives. Put your best foot forward, and dress for success. All eyes are on you this week.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — You’re tying up loose ends, and you’re able to enjoy some “free time” shortly. Take some time away to regroup and heal your overworked mind and body. You don’t have to alienate yourself to keep in check. You can balance your priorities, time and energy with ease now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You may be surprised when you receive a long-distance call or letter from someone from your past. This is a great time to emotionally catch up and get the scoop surrounding those you care about. Upsetting news may also arrive regarding the health of another. Keep in touch, and offer emotional support. The outcome may be better than initially diagnosed.
