CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant looks at what lies in the week ahead.
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
The pressure is off for a few days as the month begins, so take advantage of the down time to think about what you want to do in the weeks ahead. Details start to swirl in your mind motivating you for a new venture or adventure, so by this time next month you could be in an entirely new place. Don’t get too overwrought about fulfilling a friend’s expectations, while you’re worrying over this, they’ve all but forgotten about it! Spending time in the great outdoors will lift your spirits.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
Following a hunch pays off for you now, whether it’s picking lottery numbers, taking a turn down a different street or looking up someone you’ve not seen in a while. Something pleasant comes from trusting your own impulse or acting spontaneously. A friend who’s on the edge of tears may not want to confide in you, or reveal everything that’s bothering them, but you can still be there as an emotional support even if you’re not fully informed. They’ll feel the love regardless.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
You’ll hardly have to say anything in your own defence as friends and admirers stand up for you, even in your absence. This kind of rallying to your side is a great confidence builder, especially when you see someone you thought was a rival speaking up for you. All this inspires you to take on a task many consider heroic, even beyond your capabilities but you won’t let that deter you or put you off in the slightest. You are ready for a quest!
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
Instead of fretting over how you upset someone close, think about how you can put things right. An apology and a small gift to express your regret and make up for ill feelings is a good start. People are extra sensitive this weekend, so tread softly in all your dealings, especially with members of your own family. Whatever creative talent you may have, this is a fine time to indulge it; you may even hit on something that could bring in some cash for you. Try your hand at whatever interests you.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
As the week unfolds you’ll need to pay closer attention to an on-going relationship. It’s easy to get comfortable and begin taking things for granted with the passage of time, so take this as your wake up call to tune in again with where you are relative to the people in your life. If you’ve not said thank you or given a token of appreciation for quite a while, do so now. On another front, you could find yourself having to step in to help change or correct someone’s annoying habit.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
You mood improves as you see things you’ve been working on coming to fruition. It’s cause for a confidence attitude to infuse many parts of your life. It’s interesting how when you’re in a good place in one phase of experience, that joy seeps through to other phases. This is true in reverse as well. When you’re down about one thing, it colours everything. Set up a strategy now for staying on a more even keel across the board. You’ll sleep better and handle things better all around!
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
Always on the lookout for pretty things to decorate your living space or lovely accessories to use as fashion accents, you find yourself in a great location to snap up bargains. Attending auctions or boot sales is a good idea, especially if you’re in the market for specialised items. You could also make friends with interesting people who share your taste. Enjoy a chat over a coffee or tea and you’ll soon have more friends and acquaintances than you thought possible.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
You’ll know as soon as you hear it that you don’t like a friend’s ideas, although it’s not like you to mince words, you won’t speak up right away. What’s the problem? Be as diplomatic or as gracious as you can be under the circumstances, but do be truthful if you’re asked for your opinion. If you don’t you’ll be resentful for some time to come. Meeting people who can help you in your working life sets you on a good course. Make sure they know what you’re capable of.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
Don’t fret if you start the week feeling out of sorts, there are minor irritants everywhere and it’s hard to avoid or ignore them! Retreat is an option, so find a comfy place with music to calm the spirit or a creative activity to inspire your mind. Being alone will keep you clear of people who find it difficult to make up their minds, or stick to choices they made after they commit! It’s an odd time to try to get anything done, but happily, you’re flexible enough to go with the flow.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
It’s a good time to put the finishing touches to plans and projects. If you’ve been looking for a business partnership, you’ll find possible candidates to team up with now, and the whole thing will go smoothly and effortlessly. Outline your intentions and goals right from the start so there will be no misunderstandings. Being willing to listen to others is important this week as those close to you have plenty to say! How ready are you to change course for someone you love?
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
You’re good at persuading people to do things your way or change their mind about a long held belief. Make sure your plans are thoroughly thought through and you’ve considered all possible consequences before you go too far! A family member or close friend seeks support in a dispute, but don’t take sides. Listening and offering a perspective on the situation can help calm their mood. Handling another friend who’s prone to changing their mind will be more of a challenge.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
Too many people with too much to say can set your head spinning in next to no time, so finding your own private haven is a good idea. This may take the form of getting your hair done at a fancy salon, going window shopping, working out, swimming, or doing whatever takes you away from the world for a while. A potential argument is side stepped if you find humour in the situation as it unfolds. There’s lots to laugh about if you look at it a different way.
