Russell Grant's horoscopes Dec 31 to Jan 6By Russell Grant
December 31, 2012
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Looking ahead at the New Year, you want to take a serious, prudent, and patient approach to life.
Family upheavals have made you hot under the collar, and you’d like that situation to change. Exhibiting grace under fire won’t be a problem for you, so long as you learn how to manage your time effectively and give yourself space to rest and relax your mind.
Work will continue to lend stability, but don’t let it eclipse your personal life.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Keeping a low profile will become increasingly important in 2013. You’re tired of operating beneath a microscope. Getting a little privacy will allow you to use your imagination more freely.
Career opportunities will abound, but they’ll arrive because you are so discreet. Your dislike of the spotlight will make a good impression on the powers that be. They know you will be content to work behind the scenes while flashier people handle public relations.
Adopting a spiritual practice can also keep you centred in the coming year.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Be a little more selective about the company you keep next year. Spending time with older, established friends will lend a welcome sense of calm. Experienced people know it is rarely necessary to react at a moment’s notice.
Adopting a more reflective attitude will keep anxiety at bay. It will also help you make more intelligent choices. If you’re looking for work, spread the word among loved ones. Personal connections are invaluable in a job market like this.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Achieving prominence in your chosen field is your greatest resolution. You’re tired of toiling away while less talented people move up the ladder of success. If you want to get a promotion, hone your leadership skills.
You’ve been blessed with natural authority, but knowing how to manage teams will help immeasurably. You can’t just order people around. You have to know how to appeal to their vanity and learn what motivates them. A psychology course will prove helpful.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Furthering your education will be a good way to spend 2013. Getting a degree will make you a hot commodity on the job market. It will also cause your stature to rise in your community.
Don’t be surprised if you are asked to teach a class or lead a civic group. People respect your calm, practical approach. You’d never make provocative remarks during a tense discussion. That’s because you’re more interested in building bridges than burning them down.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Paying off your debts may be one of your most important resolutions. You’re tired of worrying about bills all the time. Putting yourself on a strict payment schedule will help. You might also consider consolidating all of your loans and reducing the interest rate. That sort of thing is relatively easy in the current credit crunch.
If you prefer paying off your creditors one at a time, organise them by interest rates. Pay the off the one with the highest rate first, and then move down the list.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Being more present for your loved one will be your first order of business in 2013. Finding ways to spend more quality time together will improve your relationship. So will developing mutual interests. If you’re single, you will have an opportunity to meet someone special at a civic or professional organisation.
You long to join forces with someone who shares your values. Fortunately, it looks like you will get a chance to meet just such partner. Having a lover will cause your stature to rise, too.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) Putting yourself on a health regime will be a wise use of your time in 2013. You have the ability to lose fat and build muscle through a sensible exercise routine.
Of course, if you’re going to be more active, you must feed your body with high octane fuel. Lean proteins, fresh produce, and whole grains are the way to go. Keep sugar and fat to a minimum. It’s fine to indulge in an occasional dessert, so long as you make an effort to be active.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Developing your creative talent will be a noble resolution for 2013. You’re extremely good with your hands, and may enjoy playing an instrument, making pottery, or working with rich materials.
Studying with a master will force you to make time for your hobby. You are far less likely to let your gifts lay fallow when you’re paying for classes. If you play your cards right, you could sell your crafts for money. People are willing to pay good money for unique gifts, especially if they’re both practical and beautiful.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Establishing a secure home base should be your primary focus for the New Year. Saving money for your own place will be a challenge, but an enjoyable one. You’re not willing to settle for second best as far as your surroundings are concerned.
If you’re on a budget, you may decide to move to an up and coming neighbourhood where houses and flats are reasonably priced. Do you already have a home? This would be a great time to launch an extensive renovation job.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Being more circumspect in your communications will help you in 2013. You have passionate feelings about a variety of subjects. Expressing them freely in public has caused problems. The last thing you need is to inadvertently offend a powerful executive.
By keeping your personal views secret, you’ll pave the way for career success. When going on job interviews, listen more than you speak. Your attentive attitude will make a great impression and result in a very well paid job.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Adopting a more cautious approach to money will be of tremendous benefit in 2013. Resolving to get better value for your money is critical. Don’t give in to impulse spending and put more of your hard earned cash into savings.
Having a nest egg will give you a greater measure of freedom. You’re tired of taking unpleasant jobs just to pay the bills. With a little money in reserve, you’ll be able to be more discerning. Finding work that speaks to your heart will be a revelation.
