Russell Grant Horoscopes

CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant looks at the horoscopes for the week ahead (from Sunday March 25).

ARIES March 21st - April 20th

You seem to have enough confidence in yourself that you don’t care about outside validation, but that’s only how it looks to outsiders. Inside you feel more vulnerable than you let on; only those closest to you see the truth. The praise and plaudits that come your way are genuinely sincere and will let you know how much you’re valued and respected. Appreciate these now and remember them the next time those inner doubts start getting in top of you.

TAURUS April 21st - May 21st

What better time than the start of Spring to think about updating your image? If you haven’t already made space by getting rid of worn out clothes, now’s the time to chuck them out. Deep down you know you’ll never wear them again. Get together with friends to make bags of good, clean clothing to donate to charity. Your new look will be a big boon to you when it comes to making an impact on the world of work or even turning the head of someone special.

GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st

You may start the discussion, but who’ll have the last word? Do you just want to have your opinion heard, or are you out to change minds and hearts? Touting your beliefs is appropriate in certain settings, but allowing others to voice theirs is equally important. Learning to get along in spite of holding opposing views is a very necessary skill. You’ll shine at whatever task you take on, so stand tall and be proud of your contribution to a neighbourhood workforce.

CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd

You’re in the right place at the right time for Spring cleaning your home. Get in there for a top to bottom scrubbing and dusting; you’ll immediately feel better knowing everything is fresh as a daisy. If you need new curtains, cushions, carpets or bedding now’s the time to hit the High Street. It lifts your mood to flow with the time of year and bring some ‘feel good’ colours into your environment. Don’t forget plants or fresh flowers too!

LEO July 24th - August 23rd

You never like to see or hear anyone picking on people who can’t defend themselves, but take a breath before you leap in and figure out how to best deal with this situation. What will work, diplomacy, a reprimand, emotional consequences? Take the most modest measure first, usually people respond to gentle correction. On another front, several people are planning get togethers and parties and you’re bound to be high on the invitation list.

VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd

Help’s available, and you won’t have to ask for it. Although you’re aiming to help others, it’s no disgrace if you have to ask for a helping hand yourself. It balances the scales of give and take. This is a great time to take a look at what you’ve got that you don’t need. A good clear out makes room for a flow of new energy, experiences and material goods. You might also give a thought to changing or updating your image. Change can be good!

LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd

Your inner decorator is about to have a field day as you welcome the new season. Light and airy is the look you’re aiming for and they’ll make you feel brighter and lighter yourself. You don’t need to spend lots to make your surroundings seasonally sensational, it’s the little, everyday things that make a big difference. A new friendship blossoms as you put energy into widening your social circle. You’ll enjoy the fact that they have different views and values to you.

SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd

Keeping your own counsel can be hard on the psyche. With a new season at hand, clear out the cobwebs of your mind by having a heart to heart chat with a trusted friend. You’ve a few things floating about up there that need an airing. With insightful input you’ll get a whole new spin on those dusty thoughts and will feel lighter and relieved. Not everything you’re hoping for will happen as fast as you’d like, but hang in there. Good things are on the horizon!

SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st

Letters, emails and texts bring a surprising number of invitations. If you’re a heavy texter, you can expect lots of activity on that front. People you’ve not heard from in ages are back on the scene and want to get together with you. Cultivating new friendships and re-establishing old ones keeps you happily busy in the days ahead. Keep an eye on your money as it’s easy in and easy out if you’re not careful. Save for a special outing with a special person.

CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th

Are you happy, contented and fulfilled in your world of work or are you looking for a job? New opportunities are opening up and although you may have to do something below your skill level for a short time, you’ll get noticed and move to something better in due course. Dressing for the season puts you in a lighter and more dynamic frame of mind, so out with the old and in with a few select pieces that lift and brighten your outlook.

AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th

Getting back to basics is a good idea, that means getting your hands dirty and stirring up the elements. It’s a great time to get up close and personal, with the lessons nature has to teach you. Tune into the influences and inspirations that are all around you and in next to no time you’ll find yourself thinking along new and innovative lines. This is a great time to experiment and try something new so long as you’re prepared to run a risk or two.

PISCES February 20th - March 20th

The good work you’ve done has been noticed and people are poised to put in a good word where it’s needed. Interesting social events are being scheduled and announcements or invitations are in the offing. With so many potential packed opportunities around you will need to focus on what is really important to you and draw up a list of priorities. A loved one throws a fresh light on an old situation with some sound advice and common sense.

Russell Grant’s Weekly Horoscopes w.b.31st March 2012

ARIES March 21st - April 20th

Adventure calls and, of course, you want to be the first to get out there and meet it head on. Just remember there’s more than one way to skin a cat so be inventive, get ready to change tactics at the drop of a hat work round obstacles rather than confront them. A friend or lover’s been thinking about you, they are planning a special treat so don’t delve too deeply if you think they’re being secretive and acting a little mysteriously.

TAURUS April 21st - May 21st

You’re never one to throw good money after bad, so stop while you’re ahead! Not everyone deserves the generosity you offer them. It’s time you took a closer look and re-evaluated the situation. An eco-friendly cause easily wins your heart. Do a thorough investigation before dedicating too much of your time and energy to this particular project and once you’re sure everything is on the up and up, you’ll get great satisfaction from this work.

GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st

When it comes to weaving words, there’s no one to hold a candle to you. It’s no wonder your talents are sought after for a local campaign or by a friend who’s at a loss as to what to say in a letter. Don’t let your inclination to be light hearted colour the way you handle things as the situation may be more sensitive than you think. A talkative newcomer to your neighbourhood singles you out as their type. What you do with that overture will be much talked about!

CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd

A happy home is almost all you need to keep you grounded. So it’s not surprising if you choose to spend time doing domestic tasks, quietly reading, baking, sewing, or a little DIY. Your usually gently flowing world will see a surge of activity when unannounced visitors drop in. Although you enjoy entertaining family and friends, you’d prefer it be at your invitation. It might not be too easy to explain yourself, but you’ll eventually get your message across.

LEO July 24th - August 23rd

It seems everyone’s looking for fun or an adventure and you feel like joining them. It’s no secret, you are a generous friend and kind companion, and more often than not quite happy to cover the costs. While this is all well and good, it’s wise to check your resources of time and money before taking on too much. You won’t be happy if you have to backtrack and let people down. Whatever your plans might be make sure you have the wherewithal to see them through.

VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd

If you’re wondering what a particular person thinks of you and your hopes and plans, you’re about to find out, but not from them so take care, it wouldn’t be wise to accept everything you hear as true. Although you may be left wondering where you stand, it would be worse to take as gospel. Whether this has career connections, business potential or romantic and intimate connotations it’s better to summon up your courage and make a direct approach.

LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd

Getting back to a hobby or interest you used to enjoy will fill you with nostalgic pleasure. Whether you let it go from frustration, lack of time or some other reason, you’ll get great pleasure taking it up again. Working alongside an enthusiastic friend will inspire you both especially if there’s cash reward at the end of it all. This is a time of growing momentum when every new challenge you accept only spurs you on to new heights of achievements.

SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd

Criticism can be hard to take, but be brutally honest with yourself. If the comments being put to you currently have any truth behind them they’re worth listening to. How else would you improve? If you see they are meant to help, then take them to heart and set about making the desired changes! On a happier note, someone you care for is waiting to hear from you. Think about who that might be, make the first move and get in touch!

SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st

You’re one of the lucky ones who enjoy the company of people who don’t share many of your opinions, values or beliefs. You will enjoy finding out what makes other folks tick, what they like and dislike and why. Because you have a philosophical nature, you’re ready to hear whatever’s on anyone’s mind. This puts you in a curious position, and if you think about this a little deeper you may find there’s a career opportunity hidden inside that’s worth considering.

CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th

Because you weighed up the outcome of a decision before jumping in, you did more than make an educated guess, you prepared yourself for whatever might occur! While other less thoughtful folk are questioning the results they’ve got, you’re sitting pretty and on top of the world! Fame finds you when you’re not looking for it, but you can step away before you get in too deep. It all depends on what you want to happen next, and that’s entirely up to you!

AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th

A surprise discovery is unexpectedly revealed and you’re at a loss as to how to react. There’s no need to respond quickly, so take time to process the information before picking up the phone or firing off a text. It’s better that you consider the many facets of the matter as well as the feelings of those involved. Surely in the past you’ve made more than one surprise announcement, now that you’re on the other side of it you can appreciate what others were going through!

PISCES February 20th - March 20th

The romantic side of life is looking rich and rosy and even if you’re currently without a partner, you can appreciate all that adds romance to life in the way of beauty, music, textures, aromas and the like. Fill your senses with sights, sounds and tastes that delight you. It takes a sensitive person, a poet or mystic, to drink in all that’s available of the wonders of this world. You’re equipped to be among the special few who can do just that.
