Russell Grant's horoscopes for January 14 to 20By Russell Grant
January 14, 2013
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) It's not like you to rush headlong into uncharted waters, so don't let impatience get the better of you now.
From taking a stroll to running a marathon, from tapping your foot to dancing till dawn if you're feeling restless, a reasonable level of physical activity could help. If you're still upset about something that happened weeks ago, give it a rest.
Talk things through with someone who has always been there for you and who can help you see the other person's point of view could be the answer.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) You're just a week away from one of you best cycles of the year, so hang on in there. Don't let an aggressive person get to you; you've the wit and wisdom to put this individual in their place without losing your temper.
You pick up an interesting strategy having watched your fair share of TV advertisements. There's a distinct pattern in how things are sold on the box and online. Did you catch it? Use this insightful information and you could be selling up a storm and laughing all the way to the bank.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You glide into an unworldly, even absent minded patch this week and you may not want to leave it. Use the time to go on a fantasy dream date with your partner or on a fanciful adventure on your own.
This is not the best of times to tackle concentrated work or anything that demands a close attention to fine or intricate detail. Instead focus on relationships and those things that add an aesthetic, artistic and attractive dimension to life and take you from the here and now to the world of what might be.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Thinking of making a few home improvements? Whether you're planning big changes or small adjustments you can have lots of fun doing it yourself. Once you get started, it'll be hard to stop. Though some cost will be involved, you needn't break the bank. Small changes like rearranging the furniture can make a big impact in the overall impression of a space.
Domestic matters feature largely in your week in other ways, too, as loved ones share their feelings about their hopes for the future.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Unusual ideas percolate as you imagine yourself in a different setting, either regarding where you live or your workplace. Do you have a secret desire to shake things up? Someone may ask you to take on a more responsible community role; if this appeals to you, go for it, but make sure you know what you’re getting into.
If your aspirations aren't quite so big, go for changes around the house with a new coat of paint or soft furnishings. It's amazing what a different colour scheme can do to a room.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Your attention is pulled in different directions; you may even be preoccupied with something that's not all that significant, except for the fact that you're dwelling on it. There is something you handled with less care than it deserved and now you need to put things right. It's nothing to worry about, just dig in, fix what you let slide and everything will be fine.
Your instinct about a business offer is spot on and you could end up saving several of your friends from making a very foolish decision.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Some people may think you've undergone a personality transplant. One friend at least isn't at all happy. That doesn't mean you've done anything wrong, it's just that people don't like their expectations shattered.
It's about time you stood up for yourself, so don't let anyone tell you differently. Your direct approach is refreshing and helps you get something you would otherwise have lost.
Don't put good money after bad when someone comes asking for a loan. Appearing docile impacts your love life.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) A group gathering of professionals or like minded enthusiasts puts you in place to meet a variety of interesting people.
Should you be looking for a new friendship or a compatible conversation partner, you'll find one here. It's best not to compare what goes on in a new relationship with things that have happened in the past. Take things as they come and enjoy the moment.
If you’re hoping to shed a few of the festive pounds you gathered over Christmas now is the time to swing into action.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Why would you not give your opinion when you're asked? Is what you're thinking so out of the box? You'll be surprised to find out how many others are thinking exactly same as you; they just haven't spoken up. You're on the line because the question has been put to you.
You should take the lead and summon up the courage to speak for the group. You will discover how wise you were to hold on to something you were thinking of throwing out or giving away recently when it comes in very handy now.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) The focus shifts from relationships to job issues, but you're smart enough to know that lots of problems at work are due to people not getting along, making life more and more complicated.
If someone's not pulling their weight, missing deadlines or letting petty jealousies get in the way of workplace harmony, everybody feels the effects. You can be a key player in getting everyone back on the same page and restoring peace amongst teammates so don’t hold back from doing what you know is right.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) It's about time you paid attention to someone who's been watching you from a distance. You're already aware of this person, but have chosen to overlook or ignore them. Why not test the waters by dreaming up a project you can work on together; it'll give you the chance to take a closer look at them and make your mind up.
Don't be overly critical of a friend's ideas; not everyone has your insight or such an uncanny ability to weigh up potential and see which way the wind is blowing.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Your tendency to stretch the truth is put to the test when you're asked for your version of an event. You tell a good story, but stick with the facts this time. Someone's reputation hangs in the balance. A friend will thank you for steering them away from someone they have recently met. It doesn't take long for you to see through the game they're playing.
As you experiment at home with kitchen products you hit on a potential making money idea; this could be a winner, but proceed thoughtfully.
