Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 6-12, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 6-12, 2014
This Week: The super full moon arrives Aug. 10 in Aquarius. This cosmic alignment creates a stronger sense of authenticity and confidence. Utilize this time to awaken your sleeping passion and manifest exactly what you want and need out of life. The previous astrological climate created so many challenges that this newfound energy will be like a breath of fresh air. Enjoy it!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — A recent exchange of energy with someone of the opposite sex may have left you a bit bewildered. There is no denying the attraction exists, but you may not know exactly how to navigate around it. Be open to this exchange of energy. You will be embraced with expanded social activities as a result of this encounter. This is a positive connection.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Take stock in what you have, and count your blessings. Looking at loss will do you no good now. An upgrade in your career sector is evident. Take advantage of this opportunity, and let the powers that be know you are up for the challenge. You will find a great amount of satisfaction with this new endeavor.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You may feel like you need to make an appointment with your favorite psychologist, considering it appears as though everyone around you has gone stark-raving mad. Retreat into your own realm, and take some time to yourself. Physical activity will remove the stress you have recently dealt with. Others give you the space you need. A love from your past returns.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — A generous offer arrives within the work arena this week. You may be anxious at first with the anticipation of the change itself; however, you do know that this would be your best bet in the long run. The opportunity for expansion and growth are not only evident in the emotional aspect of this change, but also evident in the financial realm as well. Go for it.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You’re amazed with the fact that when push comes to shove, you are surrounded by loved ones who have your back and then some. The chronic fatigue of a loved one could have you on edge, but a solution appears to be arriving shortly. An unexpected source works behind the scenes, gathering information that will benefit you. Keep a stiff upper lip.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — The arrival of a new family member or pet lifts your spirits at this week. Emotionally, you are on a natural high; no one can take this energy away from you now. Legal aspects need to be cleaned up and dealt with aggressively. Do not allow another to bully you at this time. You have too much going on to tolerate that kind of nonsense.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — Time to align a reality check with your financial sector before things get too far out of hand. If you’ve overextended yourself — either physically or financially — you may need to downsize your responsibilities, one way or another. This is not a good time to challenge your present employer. It’s best to tread lightly at this time.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — You’re beginning to feel like yourself again. Take an opportunity to make connections with friends and family. A new arrival will bring your heart so much joy. Exchange energy with pure individuals. A boys’/girls’ night out may be needed soon. This will help you blow off some steam.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — You may need to offer some emotional or financial support to another this week. Either way, you end up on top as a result of this action. You’re hearing from a love from your past at this time. This helps to tie up loose ends for the future. Your current love option may have you questioning the motives of this individual. Let it be for now, and focus on your long-term goals instead.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Deactivate your hermit mode mentality and start getting out and about this week. Enjoy the company of those whom you have not had time for recently. This will do you a world of good in the long haul. An unexpected windfall arrives this week. At the 11th hour, you’re back on track.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — Try not to take the behavior of another too personally. The “pull yourself up by your own bootstraps” mentality is not what another is able to embrace. Allow them some space to work out a personal issue. By next week, you will see a change in their emotional state. A breakthrough with career is evident at this time. Grab the brass ring.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You have felt sensitive and a bit fragile recently. Your intuition has played a major part in this situation. You may be worried about another’s health or emotional state. You will see a major change in this aspect shortly. A friend from your past will surface at this time. You will be delighted with the information you receive.
