Russell Grant's horoscopes July 16 to 22By Russell Grant
July 16, 2012
Cancer (June22/July23) A social event will bring new and interesting people into your circle. You could hardly hope for a more delightful few days when emotionally you feel happy and optimistic.
It will be a pleasure to work alongside friends and colleagues who share your outlook on life.
A personal wish will soon be granted, making this week a truly memorable one. The weekend should be devoted to romance, capping a perfectly splendid time.
Leo (July24/Aug23) The week starts on a rather flat note but it won’t necessarily stay that way.
Personal relationships are at low ebb. If you can’t work out why your partner is being moody and uncooperative it’s probably because of some news they’ve not shared with you.
You must work to keep the channels of communication wide open by being prepared to listen to what’s not said, because that’s almost as important as what is said.
Virgo (Aug24/Sept23) An unusual challenge will demand a period of special concentration. This will mean you will have to withdraw from the main area of effort. At first you won’t mind, but later it might seem as if you’re missing out on other opportunities.
People forget to include you in social plans because you’ve dropped off the radar. This makes you feel as if all the effort you’ve put in behind the scenes has gone unnoticed and unappreciated.
Libra (Sept24/Oct23) A visit from your in laws or some relatives is being scheduled for this time. You have some qualms about this as you never feel completely at ease in their company. Try to forget about past meetings and look on this as a chance to get to know each other better.
It could be your suspicions about why people want to meet up with you are all wrong. They could actually be making an effort to establish cordial relationships with you.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Anything to do with distant places and overseas matters comes under favourable stars. Expect to spend more time on social networking sites as you keep in touch with family abroad.
Someone is planning to visit you soon and since you can’t remember the last time you saw them, you intend to make this a very special occasion.
Alternatively you could get an invitation which would make a splendid mini holiday at the lowest possible price.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) It’s hard to concentrate on anything when you’re surrounded by excitable and noisy people. Friends and colleagues are in extremely vocal high spirits. You will be amused by their antics but this could get irritating if your work is fairly complex.
There’s more than a hint of love in the air towards the end of the week. Open your heart to someone special and enjoy a wonderful few days of total togetherness.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) A small bonus or unexpected cheque will help boost your joint funds. It will be difficult to say whether you or your partner will be the more delighted! At last you can make a start on plans that were put on hold due to a lack of finances.
This would be a good time to plan a small celebration that will give you an opportunity to ask an older and wiser friend for some tips and advice on how to plan for the future.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) If new routines make an appearance in your place of work or a group setting, you might initially view these changes with disapproval.
Before you say anything, hold back and see what happens. The emphasis is now being placed on teamwork. Jobs you have been finding difficult will be eased as you get more help from others.
Your health improves when you start to relax and for a change you can leave it to someone else to lead the way.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You may not sense it but luck is hovering around you now, waiting for an opportunity to do you some good! You are mentally alert and ready to use your creative skills in your work. Your efforts will be noticed by those in authority and some extra money or a step up the career ladder cannot be ruled out as a possibility now.
Everyone in your neighbourhood seems to be wearing a smile and family life is especially rewarding.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) An invitation to a wedding, anniversary celebration or christening gives you an ideal excuse to buy a new outfit. This get together will have more appeal than normal because you will be meeting up with people you haven’t seen for ages.
An excellent time will be enjoyed by all and you will be glad you put more thought than usual into a gift that will be treasured by the recipient. Artistic pursuits and creative pastimes can be enjoyed at the weekend.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) If your career is giving you a bumpy ride it is probably because of absenteeism, due to ill health or holidays. Colleagues know they can rely on you to cover for them in their absence but this will mean your stress levels will start to rise.
If others are starting to rely on you too heavily without appreciating the tough times they are putting you through it is time to tell them they can’t keep taking advantage of your good nature.
Gemini (May22/June21) It’s a good time to revive an idea that was given the thumbs down in times gone by. You could receive a fiscal fillip from out of the blue. Although it may not be a huge sum, it will go some way towards financing a special weekend trip for you and your loved ones.
Friends and colleagues will be in a sunny, happy and cooperative mood making any work you do as a group a real joy and a genuine pleasure. Expect a relative to ask a favour.
