What do the stars hold for you this Monday? Astrologer Russell Grant reveals all...

Aries (Mar21/Apr20)

Some interesting people will be met during the course of a work or study assignment. Make an effort to get to know a stranger and you won’t regret it. Visiting places you’ve not been to before could lead to some useful experiences. Even if your first reaction is a negative one, at least check out the options on offer.

Taurus (Apr21/May21)

You had hoped to manage on your own but a project you’re tackling today will need more than one pair of hands. Asking for help will not be easy but you can’t manage this without assistance. Arrange a time to meet up with someone to get this job done before they start making other plans.

Gemini (May22/June21)

Joint efforts will bring pleasing results. Working with a colleague who has just joined your team will give you both a chance to get to know each other. Watch your response when you hear something that instantly irritates you. You could pick up what’s being said wrongly and if you react too soon, you could put your foot in it.

Cancer (June22/July23)

You need to relax more. If this means lowering your sights, so be it. The reason you’re feeling so brittle and over sensitive is because you are exhausted. You’ve taken on too much and you’re taking life far too seriously. Watching a movie or catching up on your reading will help you wind down.

Leo (July24/Aug23)

Embarking on a new career path will be one way to fulfil a goal you set for yourself at the start of the year. Due to various reasons you’ve had to put these plans on hold. Now is the time to explore new work opportunities. It isn’t too late to pursue a cherished dream.

Virgo (Aug24/Sept23)

Someone who has had a major influence in your life is starting to mean more and more to you. You may not have realised what a difference they’ve made and how much you have changed because of them until an old friend points this out to you. Now is the time to show your appreciation. Plan something special just for the two of you.

Libra (Sept24/Oct23)

You need to focus if you are going to meet a deadline. There’s a lot still to get through and very little time to do it in. Determined effort will take you to your goal. Despite the eagerness of a senior colleague to push you in a certain direction, a training scheme they suggest may not be right for you. Politely turn them down.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22)

If obligations require you to travel, take the time and trouble to double check details. Confirming times and services available, planned routes and the like will do a lot to save you later frustration. Consult a medical professional if you’re concerned about your health or the well-being of a younger member of your family.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21)

Muddles and mishaps will mean talking to people who have been strangers to you up until now. One person you’re in touch with will become a firm friend. A package, letter or flowers will be delivered to the wrong address. No matter how organised you try to be, strange happenings keep getting in the way.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20)

If you haven’t already been doing so, now is the time to start planning ahead. Have contingency plans in mind, just in case current arrangements don’t go as hoped. Think of the various ways you can make the most of your talents. Showcase your ability. An influential public official can help you find work.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19)

Keep active to avoid gossipmongers who want to hear your side of a juicy story. Some people don’t understand the meaning of the words ‘it’s none of your business.’ If a nosy neighbour asks probing questions turn around and walk away. Don’t feel you have to answer them. You are entitled to some privacy.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20)

Someone is in a dither wondering whether or not you are going to accept an impulsive offer. You will want to consider this matter carefully rather than rushing in. You can sense a loved one’s excitement but this isn’t going to influence you. Making the wrong choice could lead to all sorts of future complications.
