Your Horoscope: Week of July 9-15, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 9-15, 2014
This Week: The full moon July 12 in Capricorn provides a sense of balance, as well as opens doors for new opportunities to develop. However, the best news is that Jupiter moves into the sign of Leo for one full year July 16. Many of my Leo friends have kind of had a rough go-around for a few years, and this will definitely change that dynamic for the better. But it does affect everyone — depending on where Leo is stationed within your natal chart — on a positive note. Jupiter, the “lucky lotto ticket” planet, blesses everyone in its own unique way. After a long, grueling Mercury retrograde run last month, these aspects will be a welcome sign of relief.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Your family will be going through a major healing process as a result of an outside influence. An old romantic problem will be put to rest once and for all, and you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. As a result of this, your energy level shifts, and you can focus on your long-term goals.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — News of a wedding or birth of a baby puts you in a fabulous emotional place early on this week. You are able to indulge in the simple things in life for a moment or two before you get back to the grindstone. Celebrating the love that is exchanged between friends and family can become quite contagious. This energy carries on with you through week’s end.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may be a little bored with all of the responsibilities on your plate early on this week. This is a great time to distribute tasks to those who are standing on the sidelines with nothing better to do than to watch you struggle. A fresh start with a romantic interest puts things in the proper perspective. You both realize that you’re on the same page now.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — An unexpected offer or contract sets you above and beyond your own expectations now. You feel as though you can breathe a bit before starting in with your next endeavor. This is a great time to re-evaluate your heath and general well-being. If you have been overindulgent with certain elements, you’re in a prime position to leave these darker aspects behind for good.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Before you “flee the country,” try setting some boundaries in your own back yard first. If it appears you are revisiting the same type of energy exchanges over and over, take a step back to figure out why. If you remove yourself from the “moment,” you can recognize what’s really at the bottom of it all. By week’s end, an important factor weaves its way into your fabric.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Be brave and do not let another manipulate your emotions now. Instead of worrying about negative aspects that may happen, focus on all of the blessings that have occurred up until this point. This glass-half-empty mentality that you have been harboring is not doing you any good and is drawing in more of the same type of energy. The perfect solution for a long-standing problem arrives by week’s end.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — There is a definite shift in the way you are handling your own inner fears. Instead of projecting them on to others, you are facing them head on and removing them one by one. As a result, those around you may be more interested in exchanging energy with you. Romance seems to be falling into place. The past is in the past for good now.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — This long, drawn-out legal element or frustrating contract should be put to rest shortly. This will give you an opportunity to focus more on your personal long-term gaols. There may be a worry involving the heath of a friend or family member this week. Try to remain objective, and don’t panic. The end result is more positive than the initial problem.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You may be a bit spooked by information you receive during dream time or experiencing strong feelings of déjà vu. Understand the messages we receive are to benefit us and not to harm us. Allow this to work to your advantage, and all will make more sense by week’s end. Finances are improving shortly — don’t panic.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — You may want to focus on a long-term financial plan. You will be in a position to make favorable contacts shortly. As a result of this, business is booming in one way or another. The weekend provides time to concentrate on a personal matter more closely. You have the perfect solution to a long-standing problem.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Career opportunities arrive out of left field, providing you with more options to expand financially. Romance takes a strong turn for the better this week. Time away or hectic schedules actually work in your favor for quality alone time over the weekend with your significant other. There is plenty of time to share, and unexpected positive news arrives shortly.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Take it easy on another who is trying to work his or her way through a difficult problem. Sometimes the “tough love” approach doesn’t work for certain individuals as well as others. You will be shocked to hear some interesting information about a person from your past. Keep this to yourself for now.
