Russell Grant offers an insight into the week ahead with his new horoscopes column.
ARIES March 21st - April 20th
Teaming up with like minded enthusiasts opens up some new doors. Your pioneer spirit helps attract new donors, while their contacts improve your professional prospects. Do yourself a favour and promise less than you think you can deliver. That way, you won’t be setting up clients for disappointment. Inspiration will strike at the last moment with an important opportunity, causing you to create something truly original and popular. Set yourself apart from the crowd.
TAURUS April 21st - May 21st
An exciting career opportunity is on the way. It will mean you have to work behind the scenes on behalf of someone else. Although you won’t get much recognition for your contributions, you will get paid well for them. Don’t try to hog the limelight. By adopting a modest attitude, you’ll soon win the trust of your employer. That’s the way to make bigger and better opportunities. Don’t worry; you’ll get a chance to showcase your talent after you’ve paid your dues.
GEMINI May 22nd - June 21st
A chance to travel, write, or study is on the way. It will be such a relief to get a change of scene after being bogged down with cash concerns. A techno-savvy friend has great advice for you; be sure to follow it to the letter. Whether you learn a new computer program, buy the latest gadget, or simply learn how to drive is immaterial. The important thing is to expand your knowledge base at every opportunity. The lessons you learn now will come in handy very soon.
CANCER June 22nd - July 23rd
A handsome bonus or award comes your way from a grateful friend. You’ve worked hard and long for them and now you’re reaping the rewards of your labours. Beware of putting your faith in irresponsible people. Although their intentions are good, they are incapable of keeping their grandiose promises. You’re better off putting your energy into a corporate entity that has the money and equipment necessary to get a creative venture off the ground.
LEO July 24th - August 23rd
A new partnership puts you on the path to adventure. Without your colleague by your side, it would be hard to make your plans move forward. Therefore, you must play second fiddle from time to time. That’s not easy for a superstar like you. Yet, adopting a humble attitude will have significant rewards in the long run. Beware of getting overly confident in a job interview. You might think you made a good impression, but the competition for this position is fierce.
VIRGO August 24th - September 23rd
This is a positive time of the year to find a new job. Having technical skills will help you land the job you’re looking for. Take a crash course if you have to master the latest gadgetry or learn an up and coming software programme. You’re a quick learner, and won’t have any trouble getting the necessary skills. Having the right certificates in your hand will open a whole new range of opportunities for you. Friends and colleagues will help while your star is in the ascendant.
LIBRA September 24th - October 23rd
A compelling new beginning is about to take root, it will be unconventional. Friends and relatives will be utterly confused by the arrangement, which gives you a secret pleasure. You’re tired of following the rules all of the time. Whether it’s a new loving relationship, a new intellectual or spiritual interest or a change of career direction you should feel free to follow your own inspirations and enjoy the chance to explore and experiment in all sorts of ways.
SCORPIO October 24th - November 22nd
Taking charge of a family matter gives you a sense of stability. You’re tired of seeing a relative waste their valuable energy in an unrewarding field. By joining forces, you will help them change course. Sit down and fill out applications, put together an attractive portfolio, and draft a compelling CV. Arming them with the right professional tools will make all the difference. Don’t expect a business or romantic partner to support this project. Jealousy has reared its ugly head.
SAGITTARIUS November 23rd - December 21st
Embarking on an educational journey will be great fun. You will get on with a fellow traveller like a house on fire. You’re uplifted and inspired by their attitude. In fact, your new friend’s influence could prompt you to leave a dead end job. It’s important for you to have a creative outlet. Doing the same things day after day just dulls your imagination. Look for something that seems more like play than work, like walking dogs, exercising horses, or working with greenery and wildlife.
CAPRICORN December 22nd - January 20th
Your financial picture is all set to improve by leaps and bounds. Moneymaking opportunities related to computers, electronics, broadcasting, and utilities are especially good. Your organisational abilities will save your employer lots of time, energy, and aggravation. Your loved ones may feel a little sidelined, but they will understand. Once you establish a sensible routine, you’ll be able to take more down time. Give yourself six months to get a firm foothold with this job.
AQUARIUS January 21st - February 19th
You’re in the driving seat now, so use it to your own advantage. Everybody knows you know all the latest trends. By steering the group in a new direction, you’ll help it avoid disaster. Your family will try to drag you away from your duties, but you must resist. This project is too important to fail. You’ll have to spend long hours with your collaborators to make this endeavour a success. This may mean you will have to come late to a birthday party or family get together.
PISCES February 20th - March 20th
A spiritually uplifting opportunity comes to you out of the blue. Take this chance to return to those things you really love, whether it’s meditating, painting, writing, listening to music, or simply napping. Too often, you put yourself at the beck and call of other people who drain and sap your energy with constant demands for attention. Put your own needs first for a change, even at the risk of appearing neglectful. You’ll get a lot more respect when you set your own schedule.
