Russell Grant's horoscopes December 3 to 9By Russell Grant

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) While it’s admirable you have high standards, you don’t have to be brutally honest about them.
If your best friend or amour falls short of your expectations, be gentle. It may be best to keep quiet altogether, especially if they have been undergoing a difficult time. You’re not perfect, either.
By focusing on the marvellous aspects of their character, instead of their shortcomings, your relationship will get a lot better.
Are you single? Maybe it’s time to adopt a more easygoing attitude towards dating.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) It will be impossible to follow a routine. Too many emergency disruptions will break your stride. Instead of adhering to your schedule, be more flexible. This is difficult but critical to your success. If your boss sees you aren’t willing to be flexible to accommodate an important job, you’ll be passed over for a promotion.
Do you have your own business? Then be willing to bend the rules for an important client. You might have to hire more staff to take care of the additional work.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Someone will take advantage of your generosity. Remember the adage, ‘Once bitten, twice shy.’ You don’t have to break off this friendship, but you should be wary about granting favours to this manipulator in the future.
Not everyone has to be treated with such suspicion. Many of your loved ones have been worthy of your support. When it comes to trusting others, you have to be selective. A youngster who continually breaks the rules needs to be punished.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You can’t see the woods for the trees. Wasting time on an insignificant detail will cause you to miss an important deadline. Teaming up with a good time manager will be a great help.
You don’t like being bossed around, but it’s sometimes necessary when you lose sight of your goals. If you have an appointment, give yourself plenty of time to get there, as traffic could be a problem. Don’t hesitate to ask for directions if you get lost.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) The accuracy you prize will be elusive. Colleagues have a tendency to neglect small details, leaving you to repair the damage. Unfortunately, an authority figure is indifferent to your diligence. It’s possible they don’t understand just how hard you work to turn in a perfect performance.
The only way to showcase your talent is to take a break. Things will fall apart while you’re away, shedding light on exactly how many responsibilities you have. Choose a travel destination that appeals to your adventurous side.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Someone who owes you money will be delinquent in their payments. It may be necessary to pursue a lawsuit. Meanwhile, you have to find an additional source of income. Opportunities related to teaching, writing, and research are all good for you. It will take time to land a position, so start filling out applications now.
If you already have a job, you may not get the raise you were expecting. Times are tough and your employer may not have the resources to pay you properly.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Your surroundings are becoming chaotic, which makes you nervous. You prefer being able to find anything at a moment’s notice. Unfortunately, things have been so busy that you haven’t had time to tidy up. If you can’t locate an important document, stay calm. It will turn up soon.
Fulfil your immediate responsibilities now, then attend to the mess later. Be especially methodical when sorting through papers and receipts. A system of coloured folders will be helpful.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) It’s important to uphold standards at work, even when they seem silly or annoying. Just because your colleagues choose not to follow the rules doesn’t mean you should follow suit. Your high handed attitude will be the source of ridicule, but in time, your fellow workers will wish they had been more diligent.
If you want a plum assignment, give a compelling presentation about why you’re the best candidate for the job. Showcase your past achievements and experience and make a good impression.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) You won’t be able to spend as much time with friends as you want. This is really frustrating, as you need an element of fun to stay motivated. Drudgery has never been your strong suit. Keep chipping away at the rock pile.
If you let your responsibilities fall by the wayside, you could lose your job. Are you unemployed? It may be necessary to take a position that is relatively dull. Don’t despair. Something better will come along. In the meantime, you have to pay your bills.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) You have to beware of working too hard. Although there are some exciting career opportunities ahead, they shouldn’t eclipse your personal life.
Your loved ones are anxious to spend time with you, and are starting to feel insulted by your continual absences. Their demands seem annoying, but they’re actually quite natural. Instead of making excuses for why you can’t attend an upcoming birthday or anniversary party, agree to attend. You’ll have a lot more fun than you anticipated.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) The intellectual stimulation you crave is elusive. Right now, you’ve got to tackle a lot of boring paperwork. Resist the urge to dump this assignment on an eager newcomer. It’s important to demonstrate you are a valuable team player.
There’s a chance you will be out of your depth with a certain project. Don’t be afraid to admit your need for help. An annoying expert will come to your aid. Although you dislike working with this know it all, it’s better than making an embarrassing mistake.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You’re spreading yourself too thin. Stop agreeing to attend every event and fundraiser. Make more time for yourself. Solitary activities like writing, reading, and creative hobbies will recharge your batteries.
Resist the urge to fill the emotional void with a shopping spree. It’s fun to pile your shopping cart high, but when the bills come in, you’ll regret your impulsive behaviour. The best things in life are free. Remember that when temptation sets in. Check your credit card statement for errors.
