Russell Grant's Weekly Horoscopes
Week beginning Saturday 19th November 2011
March 21 - April 20
You're tired of being eclipsed by an overly dramatic friend. Normally, you have no problem deferring to their wit and charm, but there are some instances when you'd like to command the spotlight. Being interrupted at a party or dinner really makes you angry. Fortunately, you have no problem putting abusers in their place.
Many will be shocked by your outburst, but will secretly admire your ability to draw a healthy boundary. It takes guts to speak in your own defence.
May 22 - June 21
It's hard to have an intimate relationship with someone who doesn't respect your beliefs. Your partner doesn't have to agree with you, but they should give you credit for being an intelligent, thoughtful person. When this basic courtesy does not occur, your relationship starts falling apart. Fortunately, a new admirer is on the horizon, one who makes you feel valued and appreciated. Maybe this is a sign you must turn your back on a union that no longer works.
July 24 - August 23
You're getting mixed signals from a loved one, which proves incredibly frustrating. It's time to demand some straight answers. You won't like all of them, but at least you will know where you stand. On the plus side, a creative project has renewed your zest for life. Don't be surprised when you'll be given a chance to travel as a result of your writing, music, painting, or acting. The destination may not be glamorous, but it will be stimulating. It's time to explore new vistas!
September 24 - October 23
You've become disillusioned with a romantic interest. At first, you thought the two of you were made for each other. Now you're starting to see some fundamental differences between you. Before you abandon this affair, consider whether you're throwing away happiness with both hands. A little communication and a lot of perseverance are all that's necessary to smooth the cracks between you.
A short trip out of town will also help. You will both love a change of scenery.
November 23 - December 21
The time has come for a radical makeover. If you're not sure where to begin, enlist the aid of a friend whose style you've always admired. They will give you great tips on how to enhance your best features. Don't be surprised when you become a hot commodity on the romance market as a result of your transformation. Someone will take a light hearted joke out of context. Remain calm and defend yourself as coolly as possible.
January 21 - February 19
Instead of deliberating over every decision, just pick a path and get moving. If you make a mistake, you can always correct it later. There are worse things than making errors. Sitting on the sidelines of life is a waste of your talent. Your social circle is about to expand in exciting ways. A well travelled newcomer will thrill you with their tales of adventure. You might even be inspired to visit an exotic land that requires you to rough it.
April 21 - May 21
Take a more realistic view of your professional expectations. Although you have a lot of impressive contacts in your desired field, they won't help you get a top position. The only way to get ahead is to start at the bottom and work your way to the top.
You'll acquire some important skills along the way helping you command respect when it comes time to advance. A hot and heavy romance gives you a sexy sparkle. Keep this relationship a secret for the time being.
June 22 - July 23
A job offer is coming your way, giving you a chance to showcase your talent. You may have to start at the bottom of the organisation, but at least that will give you an opportunity to learn every aspect of the business. This will make you invaluable to the organisation. There will be some confusion surrounding an intimate relationship. It's time to have a heart to heart discussion with your amour. If your expectations don't mesh with theirs, move on.
August 24 - September 23
A property deal is too important to let pass by.
You can probably get a great deal from a bank, lending institution, or relative. Your new place will be spacious and streamlined. You're tired of living with lots of clutter. Take this opportunity to hold a yard sale. Price everything to move. It's more important to clear space than turn a big profit. Donate anything that is left over to charity. Wiping the slate clean will boost your emotional and physical energy.
October 24 - November 22
Family members are sending you mixed signals. On the one hand, they say they're supportive of your dreams. On the other, they keep undermining your confidence with snide remarks. It's possible your relatives are threatened by your success. Don't scale back your plans to win their approval. A lucrative job will fall in your lap, forcing you to make big changes to your daily routine. This will be a great opportunity to put some distance between you and your kin.
December 22 - January 20
Don't hesitate to take advantage of a chance to visit a spa or vacation retreat. You need time to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Yes, there's a lot of work on your plate, but it will be there when you return. Time sensitive tasks can be performed by relatives, colleagues, or neighbours. The important thing is to get a change of pace. If you don't slow down, you'll suffer burnout. This isn't a good time to deal with big bureaucracies, anyway.
February 20 - March 20
Stop letting nagging fears dictate your life.
Paying attention to all the warnings your subconscious is giving will only keep you chained to the same spot. An exciting career opportunity is coming your way. Not only will this job give you a chance to showcase your talents, but it will also come with a big raise. Use the money to create some long term security for yourself. Having a savings account will help you make decisions out of desire not fear.
