Your stars with Russell Grant

Aries (Mar 21-Apr20)

Don’t go poking your nose where it doesn’t belong. Respecting a loved one’s privacy is critical to the health of your relationship. If you hear a nasty story about them, take it with a pinch of salt. People repeat gossip out of malicious motives. Flattery will get you nowhere. If you want a favour, be honest about your motives. That way, the person you are asking for help from won’t feel manipulated. Your reputation for honesty is on the line. Don’t jeopardise it.

Taurus (Apr21/May21)

A well-intentioned friend will give unsuitable advice. Thank them for your input and continue obeying your own instincts. You’re an artistic person who needs a steady diet of beauty to be happy. Depriving yourself of luxury does more harm than good. You can’t buy happiness. If you’re sad, make a list of activities that bring you joy. Your spirits will soar when you spend time in the garden, bake a loaf of bread or listen to beautiful music.

Gemini (May22/Jun21)

Be realistic about what you can accomplish with your current skills and knowledge. If you want to land an important position at work, you must get more training. It may be necessary to serve as an intern before getting a salaried position. Resist the temptation to always command the spotlight. When you’re with your best friend or romantic partner, draw attention to their accomplishments. They’ll appreciate the praise and attention. It’s hard to compete with a superstar like you.

Cancer (Jun22/Jul23)

Your outlook works for you, but it doesn’t suit others. Don’t be offended when people resist your attempts to convert them. It takes all sorts of people to comprise the world. Everyone has their path. Stick to yours and continue to take pleasure in it. A friend will ask you to tell a lie for them. Don’t participate in this deception. Covering up their bad behaviour will hurt innocent people. You don’t have to broadcast the story, but you shouldn’t deny it, either.

Leo (Jul24/Aug23)

Don’t spend beyond your means. Paying off your debts should be the priority. Talk with a money manager who is dedicated to helping consumers like you. They’ll have valuable tips on how to consolidate your bills and lower the interest rate. Someone who is nice to your face is spreading gossip the moment your back is turned. Be careful about confiding deeply personal information to others. Until you can be sure of their loyalty, you will do your best to keep secrets to yourself.

Virgo (Aug24/Sep23)

Stop putting impossible demands on a loved one. Your friend has strengths as well as weaknesses. Instead of asking them to do work that makes them miserable, give them responsibilities they can handle. When neither of you can do a job, hire a professional. Don’t assume your employer will give you time off. Tell your boss you are planning to take a trip. That way, if they need you to work during a specific time, you can book your annual leave for another week.

Libra (Sep24/Oct23)

Underplaying an ache or pain is a mistake. Get a medical consultation as soon as possible. By treating this condition in its early phases, you’ll overcome it easily. After meeting with a GP, it may be necessary to see a specialist. Don’t jump to conclusions about a person based on their cultural background. The best way to assess a person’s strengths and weaknesses is to spend time together. Some of your assumptions will change after getting to know this fascinating individual.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22)

A romantic interest is playing hot and cold with you. Although you want a passionate relationship, you also want to know where you stand. If it seems like your amour has other priorities, you might want to part as friends. Beware of putting too many purchases on your credit card. Running up lots of debt will make it difficult to sleep. If you can’t pay for nonessential items with cash, save up until you can afford them. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of managing your money effectively and economically.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21)

The situation at home is confusing. You’re not sure why a relative or roommate is struggling. When you ask questions, you’re rebuffed. It’s time to confront them about their behaviour. Explain how their irresponsibility is affecting you. This self-involvement must stop. If you’re looking for love, be the kind of partner you’ve always wanted. Treat yourself with kindness, courtesy and respect. Don’t hesitate to lavish yourself with gifts, either. There’s nothing like loving yourself to attract fellow admirers.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20)

You’re getting contradictory messages from a relative or neighbour. They can’t give clear instructions because they don’t know what they want. Instead of trying to meet their demands, focus on doing the best you can. Stop setting yourself up for failure. A job that sounds too good to be true probably is. Don’t accept this offer until you’ve done some research on the company in question. You’ll discover some troubling information about the person running the operation. Steer clear of this disaster.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19)

It’s important to get the terms of a financial deal down in black and white. Don’t sign a contract before you review it with a legal expert. There will be several confusing clauses that ultimately work against you. Be ready to negotiate better terms. Beware of exaggerating your abilities. If you don’t know how to use a software programme, admit it. Your employer will be happy to give you a crash course. This paid training will pave the way for bigger and better work assignments.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20)

You’re not sure how you feel about a subject. Instead of discussing this matter in a public forum like social media, go off on your own. Blocking out voices will allow you to connect with your spiritual side. This isn’t a good time to make extravagant purchases. If you must replace an appliance, choose a model that has a reputation for being well made. It will serve you well and won’t have to be replaced every year.
