Russell Grant Horoscopes

CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant looks at the week ahead.

ARIES March 21st - April 20th

You begin the week with lots to do, or at least thinking you have! Things aren’t always the way you see them. You can carve out a schedule of activities that’s more reasonable and well paced. Why not try this for a while? There’s no real need to exhaust yourself running from one thing to another, and you may find you get more done, more calmly, if you take a more relaxed approach. Start by saying no to a silly invitation!

TAURUS April 21st - May 21st

As much as you’ve promised yourself to be careful and meticulous regarding the things you’re working on at home and at work, you’ll have a hard time avoiding distractions. There are several influences that can take your attention away from what you had planned, so it will require extra effort if you’re to get assignments handed in on time or keep promises to you made to a loved one. Don’t worry, some things work themselves out without your having to do anything.

GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st

Is there ever a point when you tire of chatter? Between in person chats over lunch and time spent texting, do you ever run out of things to say? Probably not! But it’s a good idea to give it all a rest now and then. Making yourself unavailable for a while gives you space to fill up on something other than gossip and celebrity news. Read an old classic, listen to a symphony, see a vintage film, feed your mind and imagination with something of substance!

CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd

You’re just a few days away from one of your most comfortable cycles, so be patient if things aren’t flowing smoothly as the week starts. Staying calm in the midst of others’ upsets carries you through in good humour. More often than not, you’re the one people turn to when their lives are turned upside down, and like a good ship’s captain, you’re able to lead them to a peaceful shore. Most confusions end with the passage of time, so embrace it as your friend.

LEO July 24th - August 23rd

Start making plans now, if you haven’t already, for a vacation getaway. That means tying up loose ends before you go, as well as enjoying the fun of shopping for a few outfits or accessories for your time away. Fashionable friends have plenty to say about your wardrobe choices, but you know your personal style better than anyone, and aren’t likely to be swayed by opinions not in concert with your own. Like all good lions, you’ll revel in holding an audience.

VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd

With energy levels high and ideas flowing like water; it’s a challenge to know what to do first. You’re not going to be able to do everything you have in mind, at least not all in the time frame of a week, so make notes to yourself so nothing is lost along the way. You’re usually good at setting priorities, so put your expert methodology to work organising your wish list of activities. Support for one of your more unusual plans comes from an unexpected source.

LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd

You’re set to inject a wave of freshness into an array of proceedings. Suddenly feeling bold and daring, you’re not afraid to tell a friend what you think of recent choices they made, and you’re not shy to cover any topic from beauty to behind the scenes goings on at work. While giving a friend some well timed advice is productive, saying the wrong thing to the wrong person about a serious matter is best avoided. Keep your ear to the ground and hold your tongue.

SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd

You’re always happy to go on a faultfinding mission, whether you’re asked for your opinion or not. Though you’ve plenty to say about a lot of things, you’re an expert at keeping your thoughts to yourself, and you’d be wise to do that now, especially in certain company. You know how to get information from people without them realising what you’ve extracted in casual conversation and you’re equally good at not revealing your hand to anyone!

SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st

Too much talk, whether in person, on line or across texting devices gets you trouble now if you’re not careful. Better to edit yourself before you plunge into a conversation that will come back to haunt you. Disagreements or misunderstandings are possible at every turn. Family relationships that are already tense could reach a breaking point, but you can avoid this. It all comes down to what you want to happen. You can fuel the fire if you see that as your way out.

CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th

When you and a partner or friend have different ideas about how to handle a money matter, it’ll be like walking on eggshells getting it sorted out. It may need an objective third person to guide you through this difficulty; that way you won’t be able to blame each other. Whatever plan you implement this week, resolve to stick to it. A family member needs to know you’ll be there when they need you; disappointing them will have its consequences.

AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th

The idea of spending time with friends as well as getting in touch with those at a distance gains momentum. If you’re itching to get out and see people, it won’t take much effort to make it happen. Opportunities for social mixing are abundant, but you’d be wise to open a discerning eye on some proceedings you get involved in. Fun quickly turns into frenzy if you’re in with the wrong crowd at the wrong time. Take your intuition with you wherever you go!

PISCES February 20th - March 20th

Your ability to spend time with people or situations others find difficult is admirable. The fact that you do it all without complaint puts you in a class by yourself! This week you’ve an opportunity to rescue a friend who’s much less tolerant, but you may choose to have them learn a lesson along the way. What you do about a social problem will be talked about widely in the weeks ahead. It’s amazing what happens when you weren’t even trying to get noticed!

Russell Grant’s Weekly Horoscopes w.b.23rd June 2012

ARIES March 21st - April 20th

It’s good to tell someone you care for how you really feel. If you’ve been humming and hawing, hesitant to reveal yourself, it’s time you mustered up some of that courage you’re so famous for and took the risk. This is especially true if the person in question has already shared their heart with you. Should your feelings not be equal and you’d prefer to keep your relationship as it is, or withdraw from it, it would be a pretty good idea to make that known as well.

TAURUS April 21st - May 21st

Doing something sweet for someone you’re fond of makes both of you feel good and raises another person’s opinion of you, so it’s a triple win! Involvement in a musical event is great fun for you and several friends, and leads to yet another social engagement in the near future. With many invitations on the horizon you may want to add a few new fashions to your collection so you can look your best. Happily you don’t need to spend a lot, as you’ll hit on some big bargains.

GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st

Just turning your attention to a vexing question brings you an answer! It’s not only that your mind is clear; it’s also operating on an intuitive vibe, which leads you to good results with little or no effort! If only it could always be that easy! Pursuing a new hobby adds to your fun and helps round out your already hefty social calendar. You’re certainly not wanting for things to do, but with all that’s happening remember to look in on family members who need a hand.

CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd

You’ll find yourself turning your attention to domestic issues as matters involving home and family take centre stage. If needed repairs have been ignored for a while, it’s time to get these worked on. Should you not act on this advice, you’ll later find yourself in a quandary with more severe breakdowns and higher expense. Making your environment attractive and welcoming is also part of the project, as you’ll soon be doing a fair amount of entertaining.

LEO July 24th - August 23rd

It’s not completely clear what’s on the mind of someone close, and it will take time before you get to the bottom of it. Meanwhile you’ll have to be patient and caring as you watch and listen to what they do and say. There are little clues hidden in their conversation. Your pleasant and accepting attitude eventually inspires enough confidence for the truth to be told. You’ll need to adjust the way you do things, though you may not find this agreeable.

VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd

Word puzzles, letter writing and extended phone calls take up much of your time. You’ve a good grasp on what you want to say and a keen ability to put it forward eloquently now. It’s not like you to leave a “T” uncrossed or an “I” undotted, as you’re known for being rather meticulous in your communications, but you’re currently operating on an even higher level. You’ll align with at least one friend who doesn’t need you to say anything at all, they read you that well!

LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd

How some of your friends are getting along becomes something of an obsession with you, as you feel impelled to help keep their relationship going. This may not be the best use of your time and energy, though, as it’s not on you to get involved or interfere. Ask yourself what your interest is in these people’s affairs. Although you may think you know what’s best for them, you don’t really know the whole story, so stay out of it, find something else to do.

SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd

Getting a good night’s sleep becomes more important than usual as you find yourself dreaming wonderfully intricate dreams. The insight and creative ideas you get while you’re dosing propel you to launch some interesting projects in the near future. Aside from receiving delightful input, it’s healthy and refreshing to get a solid eight hours of shuteye. You’ll find your life in general improves as you give yourself over to this natural habit.

SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st

Social engagements around town are replaced by more time entertaining at home now. You get great enjoyment from putting together theme parties and decorating accordingly. It’s amazing what you put together on a shoestring budget, and you may impress one guest so well that they’ll be talking about it and inadvertently building you a reputation you can capitalise on shortly. If earning extra cash is something you’d like to do, lending yourself out as a party planner is a good route to take.

CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th

A faux pas made at a friend’s gathering has you wanting to hide from the public for a while. That’s probably a good idea long enough for you to regroup and decide how to repair any hurts caused or overcome your embarrassment. You can’t retreat forever, though, so once you have sorted it all out in your own mind and have a plan, jump right back in and make good. A savvy friend helps you smooth over any awkward pauses in your presentation.

AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th

Your long time friends know you can be here today and gone tomorrow, but a newcomer to your social scene isn’t as understanding. There’s also the issue of someone who just met you and liked you and who’s waiting for a call because you said you’d call. Give a thought to what those words mean. Do you consider it a promise, or were you just saying something for the sake of it? Is it cruel to create expectations you have no intention of fulfilling?

PISCES February 20th - March 20th

This is an excellent time to befriend someone who’s a bit lacking in social savvy or who often acts as their own worst enemy. You’ve got great listening skills and empathy, both of which go a long way toward getting the befuddled on the right track. Sometimes all it takes for a person to sort things out is to explain their problem out loud to someone who’ll just listen! Put your compassionate self out there to do just that; you’ll hardly have to say anything!
