Your Horoscope: Week of July 16-22, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of July 16-22, 2014
This Week: Jupiter moves in to Leo July 16, creating a dynamic shift that will impact all of us in a positive light. After the recent tumultuous weeks of an unforgiving Mercury retrograde, this will definitely be a noticeable change of pace. Utilize this time to get those annoying tasks out of your way. Everyone will notice a shift in their energy levels in the weeks to come.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Finances are looking up during this time. You may even be in a position to change careers or find yourself coming into a windfall. Long-distance travel is around the corner. This is an opportunity to mix business and pleasure. Take this knowledge and use it to your advantage.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Connections you have made with the past will definitely benefit you in the present. All exchanges of personal energy have meaning to you now. You’re able to understand the depths to which we are all connected. These situations bring you in new directions and shed new light on life. Finances definitely improve this month.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You have finally moved through a very long, drawn-out situation. Now, you’re able to see why delays have worked to your advantage in the long run. Financially and emotionally, this has been a blessing in disguise. Family begins to broaden your perspective as well. You’re learning valuable information from your loved ones, and you are at peace.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — Hold true to your romantic obligations and nurture a difficult situation. It may be time to move a negative influence away from a loved one. Protect another from abuse, emotional or physical. They can hold the same dynamic impact either way. When it is obvious you will not allow this activity to flourish, it will stop once and for all.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Put the “kids” first, two-legged or four-legged! This is a time when you need to remove outside interferences. Think of those who are relying on you for comfort and safety. An overbearing family member could be creating havoc in your environment. Put a stop to this fast. Setting boundaries is not always the worst thing you can do.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Good news regarding a legal matter arrives. A long-awaited phone call or letter arrives now as well. Finance and romance show definite improvements. Your personal life requires some immediate attention. You need to plan a getaway to align your emotional wellness. When you return, you will find peace.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — You are finally able to forgive yourself for your delusional shortcomings. You realize these were not exactly a fair assumption of the person you are, as well as the person you are becoming. To understand that you may have played a “temporary part” in a beloved’s life is enough for now. Be proud of the accomplishments you have attained.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — If you are puzzled by the recent irrational behavior of another, perhaps it’s time to do a little investigating and figure out why this turn of events has transpired. Everyone around you may have their theories about it. However, unless you look into the horse’s mouth itself, you are not going to get the straight answers you require. A gentle approach is the best solution.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Another option for financial gain arrives. Look into it! This is a perfect fit for your creative and overactive schedule. You’re coming closer to reaching your ultimate goals. Try not to fear your success — you deserve this. The improvements to the quality of your life are long overdue.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — The past has really affected the way you have been thinking until recently. Aspects that you thought you had put away resurfaced like heartburn and confused you tremendously. This really needs to be resolved for your own sake now, before it sucks you into a dark hole. You do not have to go through with something because you’re worried about pleasing others. If it doesn’t feel right, bail out now.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A new career opportunity or change of residence is evident. Fear not the change and understand that this has been presented to you for a reason. Positive elements evolve around this time. You’re done with the healing process and are ready for a new adventure. Do not allow another’s insecurities to get in the way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — These concerns of health issues with you or another have been weighing heavily on your mind. Expect good news regarding this matter. You can put this to rest and restore your energy. August promises to be a turning point in your life, providing you with fresh social contacts and new ideas. Expect the best.
