CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant looks at the week’s horoscopes (Monday April 23 to Sunday April 29).
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
You will be back on the ball when it comes to money matters. The flights of fancy that may have tempted you to spend on less than sensible items recently will have evaporated. It will be bargains you’re looking for now and you’re in no doubt about how to get good value for hard earned cash. Friends are grateful to have you around as you help save them save money too. You can expect a good deed you do for someone to reap ample reward and thanks.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
It’s an excellent time to think about the future. Consider your life as a whole and admit to yourself where any weak links may exist. A new direction will bring many challenges but you will be able to handle these with common sense and efficiency. Over the weeks ahead, your long term plans will prosper. Your money and your love life are equally as blessed. Life seems full of promise and adventure. Just watch out that you don’t take on too much.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
Intuition and analysis help you deal with a personal problem. There are areas of your private life you don’t feel happy about which is why you’re determined to sort them out. By the end of the week you will have these matters resolved. This may mean having to take on new responsibilities but that won’t be a problem because you have made the decision. A loved one may complain but they don’t realise you’re doing this because you need more independence?
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
You are naturally reserved and private but you should not allow a lack of confidence stop you going after what you want. Neither should you think it’s pointless competing against people who are more talented than you. You underestimate your abilities. So stop worrying and put a smile on your face for the benefit of those around you! Discuss your uncertainties with a trustworthy friend. Once you do you won’t believe how much your mood can lighten.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
Long term plans are in the headlines of your mind. You want to be a success which is why there’s a steely determination to make alterations for the better in your life. Activities connected with big business and officialdom will go according to plan. You’re learning more about yourself and your abilities. You can also see why other people are failing. Although you would like to help them, you should only offer advice if someone actually asks for it.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
If you are working, you could get some good news about a pay rise or something similar. When it comes to personal cash, take care that an extravagant and persuasive friend doesn’t tempt lead you into busting your budget. If you are looking for entertainment, inviting people to your home should bring the most pleasure. You’re thinking about doing some travelling but you aren’t quite ready yet, to take to the road. Start planning now.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
Your innate indecisiveness could get a hold early in the week if you aren’t careful. It would be a shame to waste your days doing nothing just because you can’t make up your mind about what to do with the time you have on your hands. Why not let someone who knows your tastes and what you enjoy make the choice on your behalf? Where love and romance are concerned you could get to hear something heart warming and wonderful.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
Partnerships of any description come under the spotlight. You may have to tread cautiously when making arrangements that affect other people. Even if you aren’t happy about the new projects your partner or a close friend begins this week, go along with the drift. You could be surprised by how much you enjoy them. You will be experimental and adventurous if you are single and this is bound to bring some delightful romantic opportunities your way.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
If you’re currently trying to grasp new methods or you are aiming to improve your education, take it one step at a time. Don’t lose heart if everything seems to be an uphill struggle. Things won’t stay that way forever. If you’re working or seeking employment, you shouldn’t be suspicious of what seem to be golden opportunities to get on. Good news from overseas could mean a journey is on the cards and this is a one you will thoroughly enjoy.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
Your normal practical mind could desert you early in the week and leave you in an unfamiliar, muddle headed state! The biggest danger will be a tendency to overspend and indulge in rash speculation which has virtually no chance of success. You will need to talk to someone in the family about a recent extravagance. Don’t pay for someone else’s costly mistakes. You are making the effort to be sensible with cash. Get them to follow your example!
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
Although things at home should be easy going and pleasant early in the week, try not to tie yourself up with visitors later on. By then you’ll need time to yourself to pursue personal and private affairs. Family life may not be as harmonious over the weekend. Spending on the home could cause disagreements. It’s unlikely that any domestic contention will be brought to a swift conclusion. A bumpy ride at work is also on the cards if you’re business minded.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
Your attention is drawn to a family obligation. There is a job you were hoping to avoid but you won’t get away with it that easily! Even so, household chores and duties just won’t hold any appeal early on. Attempts to clear the decks of such tasks will take twice as long if you force yourself to keep going. Wait until later in the week and it will be easier to deal with them. The prospects for home entertaining are looking very good for the weekend.
