Your Horoscope: Week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2014
By Denise Guzzardo
Week of Aug. 27-Sept. 2, 2014
This Week: We are in the process of completing the new moon in Virgo (Aug. 25) energy and all of the aspects that aligned with it during this time. Many of you may have noticed a shift from the prior week’s anxiety or sluggishness to a highly charged, more purposeful focus in the past few days. Part of this is the Saturn and Mars conjunction that provides us with vitality and strength. This astrological weather clears paths and obstacles with ease, invoking power and energy that we couldn’t tap into previously. As the month of August slips away, we can utilize this conjunction to our advantage. Go for it!
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — You have made a connection with a unique individual who helps you see many different angles to a specific project now. Once you’re able to formulate a plan, obstacles will no longer complicate your long-term goals. You also have an opportunity to socialize with a love or friend from your past. Connect all of the dots — don’t leave anything out.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Make sure your personal path is clear before you worry about taking on any more mischief or frustration. When you tend to overlook the obvious, someone will be more than willing to point it out to you. Beautify your surrounding area and make room for growth. Could you be purposely self-sabotaging your goals? If not, is another trying to do this for you? Avoid negativity like the plague.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — Take this week to show another how much you care. You may have been too exhausted and overwhelmed to show any appreciation previously. You can’t get blood from a turnip. Now is your chance to “catch up” on your personal life. Plan a weekend away and lay the plans down for this now. It will arrive soon enough.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — You are so overwhelmed with your emotions that you can’t see the forest through the trees early on this week. Take a step back, and try to figure out from where this is all stemming. Midweek provides you with answers to a long-standing problem, and by week’s end, you’re ready to celebrate with the love of your life.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — You feel so relieved after getting all of these overwhelming burdens off your chest. Your ability to communicate runs smoothly, and you’re able to get everything under control once and for all. A focus on property may become a driving element to “get things done.” You will find a burst of energy arrives at the 11th hour.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — You feel lucky at love and work this week. Remember, love falls under a giant umbrella. Friends, family, our four-legged connections and a significant other all align in your heart with perfect order. You have more tolerance and can see the big picture without picking it apart. Take time out to focus on your appearance. All eyes are on you.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — A work associate may try to feed gossip or bully a fellow employee this week. You may need to step in and give them an earful. Normally, you would rather stay out of this kind of drama. But at this time, you have reached your last nerve with it all. Choose your words carefully, but let it be known you will not tolerate this kind of mean-spirited energy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Romance aligns in a favorable light. You feel as though you are complete with all of the aspects that have been presented to you now. A lucky break regarding a vehicle or trip will arrive shortly. Keep your eyes and ears open for information with this aspect. The weekend holds some interesting surprises for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — Those around you provide you with much love and support. You are so surprised at the outpouring of affection that you could become quite emotional over it all. Receive this love graciously, and return it whenever you can. This contagious affection is a wonderful epidemic. Your finances begin to make sense, and you’re able to set some money aside for a rainy day. Express the creative self at this time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Expansion with career will increase your finances and allow you to see the big picture in the months to come. Romance becomes a major focus midweek. You’re able to get to the bottom of a confusing element with another and clear it up for good. With that said, you can “soldier on” to bigger and better things.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — A change in home, work or career entirely is on the forefront. This is an exciting development that promises success and satisfaction. Take a leap of faith, and go for it. You can no longer worry about the “what ifs” in life and expect to expand and grow. Once everything falls into place, you breathe a big sigh of relief.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — You are in a wonderful position to acquire wealth and knowledge. However, you cannot let the past get in the way of the present. Open your mind to the possibilities of change. The picture becomes clear by week’s end.
