CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant takes a look at what lies in the week ahead (up until Sunday July 29).
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
There’s a lot of excitement in the air and you’re finding it hard to be rational and level headed. Opportunities that come your way now are not likely to be repeated and you won’t want to miss out on what’s going on. If you’re single there is someone nearby who only has eyes for you. You will be flattered by their interest so why don’t you do something about it? One of you needs to take the initiative or this relationship will never get off the ground!
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
A part of you longs for passion, excitement and spontaneity while your more cautious side warns you not to take too many risks. Choices you make won’t be easy. You are tempted by the security and safety a new job or relationship can offer, but you also crave the kind of excitement this option will never give you. Once you’ve made a decision there will be no turning back so it’s not something you will want to rush into.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
Being in a relationship where your partner makes all the decisions is not good. If, after numerous attempts, you can’t seem to get them to accept you have a mind of your own, you need to decide whether this relationship is right for you. Talking your troubles over with a close friend will make you feel so much better. If a senior colleague wants to know what you think of their ideas, be brave and tell them the truth.
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
Someone who has always been able to read you like a book can sense you have something to be excited about. You’re trying hard not to show your feelings and to keep some developments a secret, but you aren’t succeeding very well. You have a warm and affectionate nature and you blossom with a partner who is equally as loving and sensitive. By the end of the week you will probably give up trying to keep a secret.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
What really please you about a new romance or friendship is you are spending plenty time together, you’re really getting to know each other and you both like what you discover. A business meeting you had hoped to avoid will work out to your advantage. You will be glad you listened to someone who persuaded you to attend. Stay calm over the weekend and a minor crisis in the home will hardly be any problem at all.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
If your job offers you no real fulfilment or your home life is starting to bore you; it is time to start thinking about widening your horizons. Keep an eye on the situations vacant in your area. If anything interests you, get in your application early before you’re distracted by other concerns and miss the deadline. Arrange to take a trip out with friends or book a romantic weekend break. Your partner will love the idea.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
You might be looking forward to a competition or activity which you don’t expect to win but you will get a lot of pleasure from taking part. A colleague’s enthusiasm will inspire you to get involved in a fund raising or charitable event. It’s always good to spend time with people who lift your spirits and make you smile. Social events that get your interest will help lift your spirits. Even a business meeting will be surprisingly enjoyable.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
To make good progress you need to be careful and organised and more importantly, you will have to do your best to ignore the distractions all around you. So, set a goal, make a plan and stick to it. You are capable of some great achievements but a competitor will try to put stumbling blocks in your way. Stay alert and be careful about who you trust. Guesswork won’t yield the right answers. Get your facts straight before making decisions.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
Because you aren’t quite sure how some situations are going to develop, you will be playing things by ear. You’re ready to take each situation as it arises and you’re prepared for the good times and the bad. Not everything will work out well and you aren’t expecting it to, but if the week brings some small successes as a result of your hard work, you will be happy. Take time over reviewing a legal or financial document for flaws.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
If you’re learning anything new, you might feel restricted by someone who only gives out facts and does not encourage creative thinking. You have ideas you would like to share but someone doesn’t want to listen. It may be that you will benefit from looking for someone different to teach you what you need to know. It’s a good time for taking an interest in alternative therapies with a view to practice these yourself in the future.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
Someone who holds a special place in your heart might make their presence felt. They feel secure when they are with you and they value your advice and support. In romance, you could be sharing secrets or putting more trust in a new partner. Something tells you that this is a relationship that’s going to last a long time and you are meant to be together. You’re starting to intuitively realise what makes a friend or partner happy.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
You feel brighter, more relaxed and optimistic about the future. Happy developments give you a lot to anticipate. A partner who is loyal and loving makes you feel like the happiest woman on earth. Any business matters that need to be dealt with will hold a degree of importance. As long as you keep all meetings and arrangements official, there will be no reason to regret decisions you’re making now.
