Russell Grant’s Horoscopes

RUSSELL Grant takes a look into the stars for the week until Sunday February 12.

ARIES March 21st - April 20th

There’s a certain something about you now that makes you well nigh irresistible on nearly all levels of life. From love and romance where you can blow the socks off just about anyone to financial and professional matters where you can clinch a deal and negotiate your way to success in the twinkling of an eye. With so much going for you there might be a temptation to push your luck. Would that be a mistake? You bet it would.

TAURUS April 21st - May 21st

A family matter comes to a head. You simply can’t ignore this situation any longer, no matter how busy you are with work. Fortunately, your guardian angel is protecting your interests, and you’ll find someone to stand in for you while you deal with this domestic dilemma. There’s a good chance you’ll have to make changes to your day to day living arrangements to ease a stressful situation. Alternatively, you could move to a bigger place.

GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st

Information overload is making your head spin. You’ll have to take some time away from your duties to calm your restless mind. Part of the problem is you are not sharing responsibilities with those who are supposed to be helping you. If you give people a chance to do what everyone expects them to do, you’ll be a lot more relaxed and popular. There’s nothing wrong with sharing the workload. Nobody will be deemed obsolete.

CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd

Money is coming to you, but you’ll have to keep it a secret for a wee while. If you don’t, people will come out of the woodwork with their hands out. Although you’d dearly love to help your loved ones resolve their financial problems, your first obligation is to yourself. Pay off as many bills as you can, and put a small amount into savings. You’re the type who can’t relax unless you’ve got a little nest egg. Beware of putting things on your credit card you know you can’t afford.

LEO July 24th - August 23rd

You’re sick and tired of giving way to a demanding romantic or business partner. Sitting on the sidelines isn’t your style. You have to command the spotlight. Heading for change of surroundings will satisfy your ego. You’re sure to make a good impression in any situation known for its dynamism and energy. Be sure to buy some new outfits for this journey. Red and gold suit your regal style. Pack some active wear, too, as you’ll probably be walking a lot on this trip.

VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd

Something secret comes to light. The best you can do is hold your hand up and admit your mistakes. Others find you intimidating, because you have such impressive skills and high standards. You might find your colleagues becoming much friendlier as the week’s developments begin to unfurl. They’ll be comforted to know you’re human, too. Every cloud has a silver lining, even this one. A nice little refund, dividend, or inheritance is on the way. Use it to buy a new gadget.

LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd

Getting out and about with friends is a great idea. Lately, you’ve been wrapped in your own little cocoon, preferring to spend time doing your own thing. And while you’ve enjoyed this down time, your social side is getting restless. You want to mix with a big crowd, if only to hear new ideas and perspective. At the very least, bounce your ideas off different people, just to see how they can be perfected. If there’s nothing planned, throw a party yourself.

SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd

A career concern is finally clarified. You could get a raise, promotion, or high-profile job, but there will be some aspects to this offer that are disagreeable. Discuss the matter with your romantic partner before accepting. The two of you will have to make some adjustments to your household routine to accommodate this new position. If you’re single, be aware that this job will leave very little free time. You’ll have to wait to get established before you can start dating.

SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st

Results of a test or lawsuit are mixed. Although you won’t get exactly what you want, you won’t be entirely disappointed. Try to look on the bright side. It may be necessary to find a new job. The one you currently have is taking too much time and energy. Right now, you prefer to stay close to home, so you can attend to the needs of a loved one or relative. Working for a charitable institution, religious organisation, or hospital could be a welcome change of pace.

CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th

An intimate relationship reaches a turning point. It’s time to make a commitment or go your separate ways. You’re a little worried because you and your partner have so few interests in common. Still, you’re both sensual, passionate people who enjoy each other’s company. Let that be enough for now and start building those things that will bind you more closely in times to come. If you’re single, you could meet someone special at a play, concert, or art gallery.

AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th

A romantic or business partner is tired of begging for your attention. Don’t be surprised if someone decides to act out of character so you’ll notice them. This is their way of bursting your bubble. Lately, you’ve been so engrossed in your own problems you’ve lost sight of the outside world. Stop making excuses for your inattention. Yes, you are busy, but so is everyone else. Give your nearest and dearest the respect they deserve. You might have to put work on the back burner.

PISCES February 20th - March 20th

A chapter or cycle of work or life is about to come to a natural close and you will have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, you’re glad to cross this project off your ‘To Do’ list. On the other, you’ll miss the action and the camaraderie. Some relationships will pass with time, but one or two will stay the course. Everybody is busy these days, but some friendships are worth going the extra mile to make sure they survive and prosper.
