CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant takes a look at the week ahead.
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
When all you can do is sit on the sidelines and watch, accept the role with as much enthusiasm as you would a more active challenge. In many ways, it’s even more difficult for you to do nothing than to pitch in and get your hands dirty. In a few days you’ll find yourself in the spotlight for reasons that will put a smile on your face and on the faces of family and friends who are always ready to give you the support and backing you need.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
Living life at an easy pace works wonderfully for you this week, so stop thinking about deadlines or pressures and just do what you do as well as you can. Pay attention to the little things, like courtesy and kindness as you go along and before you know it you’ll find yourself in a beautiful place with someone who adds so much to your life you’ll be wondering how you ever got along without them by your side.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
Although it’s hard to shake the general sense of irritation pressing in on you, you can handle anything that comes your way, all it takes is concentration and determination. Thinking before you say too much is a big help, as careless chatter will only bring you more hassles and headaches. Choose a trusted friend to help you handle something you need to sort out, preferably someone older or wiser. Head for somewhere you find beautiful.
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
Isn’t it great when things fall into place without you having to lift a finger? That’s what you’ll see happening with lots of things over the next few days, so don’t worry. There are times when rushing too quickly and carelessly into a sensitive situation or deciding to be more proactive works against you and this is one of them. While others rant or rave it’s best to step back and let them get on with it, you’ve better things to do with your time!
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
You’re not one to sit back when a friend is under attack, even if it’s just a verbal assault, but have a plan before you jump in and play the hero. A strategy based on wrong footing an opponent can work if you use it in the hope of making them see the error of their ways. Although you can’t change anyone, you are wise enough to know that you can give them something to think about or wake them up!
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
With demands on your time coming from many different directions it’s hard to know what to do first or how to meet everyone’s expectations without spreading yourself too thin. Staying calm is always a good plan. Looking after the needs of family members falls on you most directly, but even with that you can find help or support from other people. At work, delegate whatever tasks you can to capable comrades. Look around, you’re not alone!
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
Because you often want to put people and relationships first, you gather lots of friends and followers. Although this seems like a big plus in your life, it has a downside you need to be watchful for this week. More than one user is getting in line to gather as much as they can from you. This could be time, information, favours or even cash. Knowing when to say ‘No’ will be important. It’s up to you to set reasonable boundaries.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
Unwanted and unsought for attention is coming your way, but once you see who’s behind this sudden interest you’ll perk up. A little analytical thinking helps you sort out this and a few other mysteries now. Look for intrigue and playfulness from a long time partner or new love. Temptations pop up around many corners, some in the form of fattening foods and sumptuous palate pleasers. An indulgence here and there is fun, but don’t overdo it!
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
You’ve always been keen to make friends in every situation or circumstance you find yourself in, but a newcomer with more than one irritating habit is about to get on your nerves, if they haven’t already. What starts as light banter could end up leaving you feeling like you’ve been pecked at and hassled. The best thing is to get out before you’ve got in; give them a wide berth as soon as you see what they’re up to and where it might lead.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
Staying in the thick of things keeps you happily occupied and distracted enough not to notice any unpleasantness going on around you. Focus on your job or enjoy a profitable hobby. This keeps you earning or creating something useful and far from situations that would drag you down. Keeping your bank accounts in order gives you peace of mind so you’re well equipped to help a fiscally feckless friend find a savings plan and stick to it.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
If you’re name’s not known far and wide already, your reputation is! Leave it to you to be involved in something outrageous and far-reaching; you’ve really got it ‘going on’. Watch for scene-stealers, or any others with mischief on their minds. You’ve got something in the works that others would love to get their hands on, an idea, design concept, lover, partner, friend, car, anything seen as valuable in the mind of an envious individual.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
This is a time when dreams can come true so you’d be daft if you didn’t have your goals lined up and ready to go! Several wishes are yours for the asking now so get out there and make your move. If it’s a loan you need, apply for one; if your eye’s on a more fashionable wardrobe, start shopping, if a job’s eluded you, make another pitch for it, or create one. Upgrade your computer skills if that would help you. Don’t hold back!
