CELEBRITY STARGAZER Russell Grant looks at the current week (until Sunday June 10).
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
It’s time to stop talking and start taking action. You’ve been discussing an important project for several weeks. If you don’t take steps to realise this dream, it will vanish into thin air. Fortunately, a relative or neighbour is happy to supply funds. With their help, you can launch a successful business or community organisation. This venture will become a popular gathering place and bring new life to your neighbourhood. You’ll be the toast of the town!
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
A kind person will recommend you for a wonderful job. This friend knows how long you’ve struggled to find the right thing for you. This position will not only be stable and high paying, but draw upon your creative skills as well. It doesn’t get any better than that. If you’re already happy with your job, you could get a handsome raise. Go out and celebrate by purchasing a beautiful piece of art or furniture that has been beckoning from a shop window.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
People are receptive to your ideas. This is a great time to apply for a bank loan, scholarship, or creative role. If you meet with a little resistance at first, don’t worry. Keep pressing your point with humour and charm. By refusing to take no for an answer, you’ll impress the powers that be. The key is to maintain a positive attitude at all times. These days, it’s easy to get discouraged. By refusing to fall victim to negativity, you will turn the tide in your favour.
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
Take this opportunity to bring a little order to your chaotic surroundings. Lately, you’ve been busy making the round of parties, which has left little time for cooking, shopping, and cleaning. Now that things are calming down, you can put your household back in shape. Prepare several meals in advance, so you can eat well even when you’re pressed for time. The food you fix will be far more flavourful and nutritious than what you get in a restaurant.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
Working with a large group allows you to showcase your creative talent. You’re really good at delegating jobs to the right people, so you can focus on the artistic aspect of the work. Some members of your team may be very different to you, but that doesn’t bother you. You’re willing to overlook their idiosyncrasies for the sake of harmony. After all, we’ve all got our quirks. They shouldn’t stand in the way of pulling together and doing a great job.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
You can resolve a professional disagreement by staying calm. A highly emotional executive isn’t thinking clearly about a problem. By helping them see the situation objectively, you’ll solve a problem that’s been undermining the whole organisation. Looking for work? This is a great time to go on interviews. Be sure to emphasise your ability to multi-task. Your future employer is looking for someone who is willing to pitch and be a real team player.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
Your love life is about to experience a big boost. A much needed break will draw you closer to the one you love. Alternatively, your partner may apologise for some out of character behaviour. Either way, it will be much easier to treat each other with the kindness and courtesy that characterised your courtship. If you’re single, you could meet someone special at an educational or cultural gathering. They will open your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
You’re about to uncover an important mystery about your well being. A certain practice or food has been causing a physical imbalance. By eliminating this trouble spot from your daily life, you’ll feel a lot better. At first, you’ll long for your forbidden pleasures. By refusing to fall prey to temptation, you’ll see a surge in your energy levels. Your sex drive will also increase and you’ll look a lot better, too. Some sacrifices are relatively small, and this is one of them.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
A wise friend is broadening your horizons. Be open to their ideas. Trying foreign cuisine, watching art movies, and reading classic literature will enrich your life. Yes, the process will be confusing at times. Fortunately, people admire your adventurous attitude, and will go out of their way to ease your experience. Your best friend, business partner, or lover will be especially supportive, relieving you of household duties and work responsibilities.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
It’s time to make long term financial plans. You can’t rest on your laurels. If you don’t have a steady job, learn a trade that will allow you to earn money in even the leanest economy. If you’re already in work start putting a portion of your income into savings on a regular basis. Thinking ahead and planning for the future is key to your security and that’s what will matter most to you now. Pretty soon, you won’t even notice you’re living on a smaller budget.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
You’re ready to embark on a romantic adventure. If you’re in a committed relationship, it’s time to take a more romantic approach to your relationship, even if it doesn’t come naturally. Practice makes perfect. In a more prosaic level you shouldn’t try to buy anyone’s affection. You should actually be watching what you spend and looking for ways to make savings. Set an example in economising and your loved ones will respect and follow you.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
Trust your instincts about a household matter. A relative or roommate needs help, but is too bashful to ask for it. Fortunately, you’re an expert at intuiting other people’s needs. By offering some gentle encouragement, you’ll give your friend the courage to take an important risk. Do you want to relocate? You will find a beautiful home near the sea, a lake or river, provided you do some extensive research. Be as specific as possible with an estate agent or bureaucrat.
