CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant takes a look at what the week ahead has in store.
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
With opinions flying right, left and centre you’ll be happier doing whatever you have lined up by yourself. Relatives and friends have a hard time not expressing their views about your choices or behaviour, so if you don’t want to hear it, go somewhere that insulates you from all those unwanted opinions and advice. In business keep meetings brief and to the point. Don’t flatter anyone unless you really mean it, but a kind word here and there will work to create a positive atmosphere for everyone.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
Toying with the idea of getting into local politics or some kind of community service? Take a closer look at those already playing their part. Do you admire them or find lots to criticise in what they’re doing? This kind of analysis can help you make your mind up. A relationship you felt was falling apart takes on new life when you apologise for something you did a while ago. While one relationship prospers another weakens as you finally realise it’s not really going anywhere.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
You’ve got one stimulating project after another bubbling in your brain. So many ideas, so little time. Although you can’t fit them all in now you can zero in on the most interesting. Keep the rest carefully stored away for future reference. Staying on friendly terms with someone who’s annoyed you hasn’t been easy, so the question is, why are you still hanging on? Do you feel you need this person or what they can possibly do for you down the road? How healthy is that?
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
It’s great to have a bit of extra cash available when you spot a little luxury item you once dreamed about now going for a reduced price. If the home decorating bug bit you recently this is a great way to satisfy it. A few carefully chosen pieces completely change the energy of your living space. You can choose to spend some quality time with yourself or opt for hours of congenial companionship, whichever suits your changing moods. An unexpected trip on a train will be a soothing experience.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
Have you been looking for the perfect professional to help you with a project? The good news is that one is about to show up. You don’t even need to put the word out. You’ll be happy to see how people who once argued and fought are now getting along and it’s all largely due to your gentle and timely intervention some time back. You do have a natural charm and a winning way with people hat you should not hesitate to use in all personal and professional matters over the coming days.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
You’d love to get a business matter tied up, but one or two missing pieces still need to be filled in. Be patient and hold onto the hope that everything will work out to your benefit in the end. Accepting a series of invitations is tempting, but don’t overextend yourself. Healthy pacing works better than sheer indulgence. Drawing a line with a family member is tricky, but you’ll do yourself good by taking a stand for what you believe in. If you don’t do this now, you’ll be opening the door to future trouble.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
Your delicate balancing act continues as you divide your time between taking care of those you care most about and tending to your own personal needs. Although you enjoy keeping all your relationships active, meeting for coffee, going to lunches, dinners, and the like, you require some down time too. After all, it takes more than a few minutes to gear yourself up emotionally and intellectually for meeting and greeting some of the people you will have to be nice to over the next few days.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
What will you do when someone you don’t much like or care for shows up unexpectedly? Talking is a pretty good start, so chose a neutral place to meet, make a peace offering and before you know it you’ll discover you finally have a handle on where this person is coming from. You may never be the best of friends, but reaching something of an understanding clears the emotional climate of bad vibes. A drive through the countryside, by car or bicycle, does a lot it refresh your mind and spirit.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
You get a fresh insight that will help you deal with an issue that’s been on your mind when you cross paths with a friend you’ve not seen in quite a while. Renewing acquaintances in this way is not only an uplifting experience, but fun too. Then you’re off in search of someone who can add a unique spin to the decorating project you’ve been planning, or the personal makeover you’ve been imagining. Savvy style sense can be found in an artistic Libran so pay attention when one comes your way.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
Going through your financial plans with a fine toothed comb is well worth the effort. You’re known to have an eye for detail and you’ll feel so much more secure and peaceful once this task is behind you. It will be wonderful to come across someone who so delights you they completely take your mind off anything that’s brought angst and anxiety into your world over recent weeks. Indulge yourself with something out of character or unexpected; these are the moments that create memories.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
If fitting in with the conventional expectations of friends, family or fellow workers is beginning to stifle and smother you break free now and surprise those who like to keep tabs on you. While you will enjoy causing a stir and raising eyebrows take care not to make any important decisions whilst you’re in this flippant phase. Someone wants to get closer to you, but you may prefer to keep your distance, at least for the time being. You have the best sense of what’s right for you, so stick with that.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
Tastes change, so whether you’re suddenly into a different look, different interests or different involvements, it’s all part of the natural evolution of you. It may be that you still like everything as it has been, but just feel overdue for a shake up. If you’re really feeling eccentric you may adopt wearing glasses, even if you don’t need them. You could even sign up for some kind of life enrichment or self development program and really make a shift in your consciousness.
