Your Horoscope: Week of June 25-July 1, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of June 25-July 1, 2014
This Week: Mercury retrograde and all of its calamities makes a “grand exit” July 2. Remember this: it can be just as bumpy going out as it is when it arrives. So, use extra caution this next week. Take time to go within to re-evaluate your own personal goals, wellness and clarity. Stable ground is on the way, everyone, and not a moment too soon! Whew, this has been quite a challenging time.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — An upgrade in your position through your work environment is going to be available shortly. It’s time to rise and shine and allow the powers that be to see your abilities. Keep a positive attitude this week, and do not allow your personal life to affect your career sector. Travel plans may be on the horizon shortly. A great deal may be found, if you do a little investigating.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Not everyone can fit into the “box” you may see them in. There are many factors to consider here before you can diagnose the problem correctly. Gather more information before you lay down your closing argument. Then, and only then, will you be able to access the situation correctly. Romance is a bit confusing at first; however, by week’s end, you’re back on track again.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — It’s time you contact someone who can help you with a legal issue or a financial matter. This may be more than you can handle on your own, and it will feel much better to have this aspect off your back entirely. Finances begin to improve. If your significant other is still entangled with a past matter or person, it’s time to put the brakes on that for good. You’re not in a position to listen to this destructive chatter in your home. It’s not healthy for anyone involved.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You may be concerned about an animal or child this week. Some health or emotional issues are creating some havoc with your primary family. There should be a solution to this in the weeks to come. For now, offer emotional support. A change in residence or within your residence will definitely create a shift for the better. Get rid of things you no longer need.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — News travels fast, and it appears you will shortly be receiving the full story. Your “spidey” senses have been on high alert, and you’re aware that something is in the works. You find you have an unexpected ally aligning with you now. When push comes to shove, you realize this person has always had your back. You will work together as a team for the greater good of all.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Offers are on the table with your business and career sector this week. Others have been networking for you, and the results are beginning to show now. You will be negotiating financial aspects shortly. Don’t be shy about what you’re entitled to. You will be enjoying the opportunities that have expanded your social sector. New friends and activities allow you to really “be yourself.”
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Watch your tendency to correct or reprimand another at this time. He or she may be paying very close attention to every word that flies out of your mouth and quietly preparing his or her exit. You can’t accuse another of being overly sensitive as you take a jackhammer to them. Gentle persuasion and praise will give you the results you need in the long run. Expect your finances to improve dynamically now. Help another in need.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This would be a good week to re-establish your personal character. Many of you have become lost in others’ lives and situations. As a result of that, you have lost sight of yourselves. It’s an easy thing to do, but not always easy to recognize. Go back to square one with your own dreams, goals and ambitions. Take time to check in with a friend or family member. You need a good laugh, and you know exactly where to find it this week.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — A long-standing financial problem will resolve itself during the month of July. So, you will have a better grasp on which way your finances are aligning now, which is a huge relief. Part of the problem has been an emotional depletion of your own energy sources. As others were more than willing to take advantage of you financially, emotionally and spiritually, it’s been hard for you to focus. However, that is all shifting for the better now. The universe never throws “good money after bad.” Now, you can concentrate on your own goals.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Concerns of a health issue with a loved one may be weighing heavily on your mind midweek. Rest assured that the outcome will be brighter than the suspicions considered thus far. Opportunities to sell or purchase a big-ticket item are just around the corner. This changes your financial outlook for the better, and should be completed by fall. You may find yourself face to face with a friend or loved one from your past by week’s end. All is well that ends well.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Even though you’re surrounded by friends and family, you have felt lonely over the last week or so. This disconnected feeling will begin to wear off during the month of July. The uncertainty of your long-term path is what’s at the bottom of the problem. Add a little fear into the mix, and you’re off into anxiety land. Sit down with another whose opinion matters to you and discuss your long-term ideas. You will find the emotional support you need.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You will be asked to go above and beyond the call of duty at home or work this week. Try not to over-exaggerate the situation and keep your opinions to yourself until all is said and done. That will be time to offer up your suggestions. Allow yourself enough time to get from point A to point B this week. Travel difficulties could affect you in a negative way otherwise.
