CELEBRITY stargazer Russell Grant takes a look at what lies in the week ahead
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
Lady luck will be smiling down on you now and for the next few weeks to come. You could be offered a promotion within your existing line of work, or a new job with better prospects. The effect of a career change won’t be immediate but it will go a long way towards improving your financial situation. Romance develops in a special way when you and your partner will share a deep affection which belongs to the heart and mind rather than anything physical.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
Keeping a low profile will give you the time to devote some careful thought to a project involving changes at home. Once you have looked at this from every angle, you might decide to get started straight away. You continue to feel inspired as you constantly come up with brighter and potentially lucrative ideas which may help bolster your finances. A neighbour will loan you some equipment which makes a job or task so much easier.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
Whether you are an onlooker or a participant, you will thoroughly enjoy any neighbourhood activities that are now taking place. Social events are a real pleasure and you may even get to meet a VIP which will give you plenty to talk about when you get together with your friends. A previously postponed meeting or interview will take place as the week comes to an end. After rejecting a recent offer to help a team effort, others are ready now to hear your ideas.
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
The one thing you need to understand is you must trust your own judgement in financial and other important matters. This means: ignore advice coming from colleagues and friends who think they know better than you. People around you will be very persuasive and may even get angry if you disagree with them or refuse to fall in with their ideas. Even so, stand your ground as you will instinctively know how to make the most advantageous moves.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
There is some slight confusion regarding an ongoing team effort or work assignment. Go back to the drawing board and make changes to existing projects, or renew old ties. Someone from your past who is experienced in the matters you are dealing with now could advise you on the best way forward. A joint effort will go reasonably well providing your partner is willing to give you the freedom to get on without interference at least some of the time!
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
While you will be very pleased with the progress you are making behind the scenes, you might wonder whether anyone else has noticed what you have achieved. Actually current trends are flowing strongly in your favour and a combination of factors will ensure you will get the recognition your work deserves. There’s an informal atmosphere to the weekend when friends and neighbours will drop in and visit to pass on some intriguing news.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
There are some matters that are worrying you that you haven’t really discussed with anyone. If you can share your uncertainties with a loved one, they will be able to bring a fresh mind to the problem and quite possibly help you see an unexpectedly simple and practical way forward. A visit from relatives later in the week will not be as daunting as expected when there are many interests that you share and you will be able to relax and enjoy their company.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
No matter what you do or say there will be distractions and diversions cluttering your way forward for the next few days. People will stop you getting on with your work and expect you to lend a hand with theirs. Essential equipment might break down just as you need to use it even though others had no problem with the same equipment earlier! It will take a great deal of moral character to ignore these frustrations and to find a way around them.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
Self improvement ideas involving an educational course, private study or working overseas will definitely enhance your future prospects. Once you get an idea into your head, you won’t rest until you find a way to put new plans into action. Loved ones are both enthusiastic and a little nervous about new arrangements. Encourage your nearest and dearest to share their worries then you can do all you can to reassure them you are making the right choices.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
Pull out all the stops if you have been chosen to entertain important individuals connected with your work. Put on your widest smile, deploy all your charisma and ask all the right questions. The impression you create could affect your promotional prospects more than you realise. Some hard spade work will bring good results with regard to raising the finance needed to get a group or community project off the ground. Those involved appreciate your sensible advice.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
An offer to enter into some form of partnership may be hard to resist. You won’t want to rush into this venture, but it does look as if it could be an extremely lucrative opportunity. With the atmosphere at home being so commodious and harmonious, you will find it a pleasure to work alongside a loved one on a household task you both would like to get done and dusted. You can hope for time to relax over the weekend, but will friends and relatives let you?
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
If you were anticipating a fairly easy week and looking forward to a more relaxed regimen, forget it! Even though it will be against all your inclinations, there may be an urgent need to get your head down and get on with your work and other responsibilities. These jobs may be tedious and tiresome to begin with but once they are over and done with it will be a relief to know you won’t ever have to do them again! Just be sure to plan a relaxing weekend.
