YOUR HOROSCOPE BY BLES CARMONA
For the week of January 4-10, 2016
For all the signs: We’ve mentioned the Mercury retrograde phenomenon last week, happening on the 5th of January. To recap, it’s a 3-week period when we are asked to reflect, review, recheck, and then recheck again, especially all forms of communication and transportation arrangements. All that being said, nothing beats a dose of perspective and a healthy sense of humor when dealing with mechanical wobbles and all-too-human foibles. Oh yes, we’ll also be having the New Moon in Capricorn on the 9th, so it’s time to set our intentions and sign our “New Moon Abundance Checks” again. (Please Google the term for websites with blank checks that you can print out three or four checks to a page.) With Capricorn energy infusing our New Moon, let us claim material abundance — yes, why not? But let’s not aim for our intentions to stop there. We can also claim an abundance of profitable ideas, supportive people, and promising opportunities.
ARIES (Mar 21-Apr 19) Put extra effort into making sure that your agenda matches up with that of your partner. You realize that without their cooperation, there may be delays or changes to your plans. Weekly mantra: I am truthful yet tactful.
TAURUS (Apr 20-May 20) Your mettle will be tested as to how much pain you can withstand. But nobody is asking you to bear it alone, without relief. Ask for help and be set free from your burdens. Weekly mantra: I am healed and whole.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your mind will be on overdrive with many brilliant suggestions and ideas. However, as you already know, not everyone would be happy with the initiative that you’re showing. Better show them who’s boss. Weekly mantra: I find inspiration in the situation.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Your naturally sharp senses are blurred by a sense of discontentment. Please snap out of it soon if you don’t want to miss an important opportunity. See more clearly by opening the eyes of your heart. Weekly mantra: I choose to be thankful rather than ungrateful.
LEO (July 23-Aug 22) When you’re standing on the sidelines watching your family interacting in pure fun, your heart feels like bursting with joy. Add financial security to that picture and you couldn’t ask for more. Weekly mantra: I appreciate the simple values in life.
VIRGO (Aug 23-Sept 22) Money alone does not motivate you. At this point you want to do something more exciting and close to the land. A field trip? A mountain trek? It could be as simple as wanting to go back to school again. Weekly mantra: I am adventurous yet stable.
LIBRA (Sept 23-Oct 22) You’ve been working too hard. You need to have more fun — pronto! Otherwise those mysterious aches and pains would really start to bother you. Tune in for a wedding, graduation or some other special event. Weekly mantra: I balance work and recreation.
SCORPIO (Oct 23-Nov 21) You’ve enjoyed a newfound closeness with someone in your life, so much so that when forgiveness needs to be dealt, there’s enough of it to go around. You’ll realize how silly it was for the conflict to have gone on. Weekly mantra: I am thankful for this reconciliation.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22-Dec 21) Speaking your mind has never been a problem for you. But is the other party ready to accept your truth? You are confident enough to allow them to speak their truth as well. Strive to find a middle ground. Weekly mantra: I am impartial and diplomatic.
CAPRICORN (Dec 22-Jan 19) You are born of the Earth and closely attuned to her riches. This is the time to lavishly cultivate your dreams, nurture yourself and others, and make practical intentions. Enjoy this time of personal abundance. Weekly mantra: I am a master at manifestation.
AQUARIUS (Jan 20-Feb 18) Before you act upon anything this week, please consider first what it is that you really want. Access the quiet place within you, seek angelic guidance, or go out in nature to refresh your vista. Weekly mantra: I will be patient enough to wait for my answer.
PISCES (Feb 19-Mar 20) Have you experienced periods in your life when everything you touch turned to gold? Well, such a time is here again, so confidently accept the opportunities you’re offered. Success and recognition are at hand. Weekly mantra: I accept this current upswing in the cycle of my life, for my highest good.
