Week of Sept. 17-23, 2014
This Week: Now that Mars has arrived in Sagittarius and will remain there for its six-week tour, utilize this highly charged energy to get those nagging projects done. This planetary vibration will also invoke plenty of opportunities to socialize. Sagittarius can be blunt, so be cautious not to form a case of foot-in-mouth disease when you communicate with others. The new moon arrives Sept. 24 in romantic Libra. This moon emphasizes relationships in general — romantic as well as friendships. Make every moment count.
Aries (March 21 to April 19) — Your intuition is acutely tuned in this week, especially regarding the emotional or physical well-being of a female friend or family member. The tricky part will be broaching the subject without igniting some resistance. Trust that when the opportunity does arrive to express your concerns, the words will be received with authenticity and love.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20) — Avoid getting too involved in a negative aspect that does not seem to have any end in sight. Take a step back and fix yourself before you work on “fixing” someone else. Right now, many opportunities are presenting themselves to you. You cannot allow another to drag you down. A little personal TLC is highly recommended.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) — You will be put in a position to have to defend another. Try very hard to choose your words carefully. Don’t bend on your convictions or get caught up in the “he said, she said” stuff. Move forward with love and integrity, and others will follow. This is a spiritual test, one you can pass with flying colors.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — It appears an addition to the family will be arriving soon. This may be of the two-legged or four-legged variety. In either case, this will definitely shift the energy for the greater good during the months to come. Another may try to twist the words of a friend or loved one. Go to the source and get all of the facts before you become too confrontational. Don’t feed the negativity.
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) — Now you may be in a position to help a loved one rekindle a relationship that is important to them. You may need to be the voice of reason here. Question the behavior of this individual as well. How is it that they can just throw blame around or cut people off at the knees? Remember, if they can do this to others, what are they capable of doing to you? Teach compassion this week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) — Slowly, but surely, you are in a position to rebuild a relationship with another. It is up to you how much effort you are willing to put into this. Try to see people as sensitive individuals and not commodities, and you will come out shining like a star this week. You’ve had enough of the negativity, and you’re ready for a clean slate. Take care of your emotions and needs first. Everything else will fall into place.
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) — For whatever reason, you’re willing to let go of an old emotional wound. Finally, after searching and searching, you have found the purpose of that relationship and what it has taught you. One message is you became strong and wise as a result of it. Your ability to “help others” emotionally came from that same wound. Be proud of that scar — show it off, as it has made you who you are today.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) — Unusual legal aspects or documents take a turn for the better. This is a result of how you have chosen to look at it: in a different light than you were able to see it from before. Your spiritual awakening is about to take shape and form. Your values are shifting and changing now.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) — If you have been uneasy about cash flow, trust that the universe will continue to have your back in the months to come. This may even seem a little more challenging than normal because there has been an outpouring of cash for upgrades or repairs recently. You will notice with Mars in your sign for the next six weeks that a positive flow of energy on all levels will arrive. Chin up, buttercup.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) — Financial and emotional restrictions are lifted this week. You can breathe a huge sigh of relief and begin to enjoy the simple things in life again. Family and friends have been waiting for you to come out of your shell. Plenty of opportunities to socialize are available this week, so take advantage of these connections and emotional support. All eyes are on you.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) — If you have been a little too hard on someone, it may backlash on you now. Back off a bit and stay out of another’s family situations. You may feel as though you are lending support, but in the long run, this could come back to bite you somehow. Take time out for yourself. Get together with those of like mind and interests now.
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20) — Someone will attempt to extend the olive branch to you. Try not to give them such a hard time (even if they deserve it). Remember, this is a time to forgive. Forgiveness does not necessarily mean you need to forget, it just gives another way too much power over you if you cannot let things go.
