Russell Grant's horoscopes January 21 to 27By Russell Grant
January 21, 2013
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Colleagues or contacts who dismissed you or your ideas in the past will be more receptive now.
If you've been called eccentric or impractical in the past, you'll suddenly find you are flavour of the month. What would a birthday time be without friends to celebrate with?
People you don't meet regularly come out of the woodwork to invite you to lunch or drinks or special events. You'll do particularly well at a fundraiser attracting donors to a worthy cause, so get in there and apply your magic.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Someone unusual catches your attention and tickles your sense of humour. It's a matter of creative chemistry when the two of you start talking about a project that would leave people wide eyed should it ever come to be.
Your home life settles into a pleasantly quiet routine, but if there are youngsters about don't be surprised if they come up with some wild suggestions or requests. The air is suddenly electric with outlandish notions.
Pay special attention to your dreams from Wednesday onwards.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) As much as you love being first, you'll not be the first to give in whatever contest you're engaged in. You hardly ever think too much is too much, especially if attention is focused on you. Well, it's time you broke a few of your own rules and admit defeat when it hits, particularly if there's an effect on your health.
After a hiccup at work it's not down to anyone else to pick up the pieces, so take responsibility, roll up your sleeves and get on with it. People will respect and admire your brave approach.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Although you start the week feeling fine and dandy in a few days you'll soon be counting the cost of any rash moves or erratic behaviour. Stick with what you know best and don’t go trying your hand at anything new or unfamiliar, in time you’ll feel more confident and ready to rise to any challenge.
Convincing a friend they've been misled isn't easy, people don't want to believe negatives about someone they trusted. Eventually all the details will come out and you'll be proven right. Again!
Gemini (May22/Jun21) You get a major energy boost and amaze yourself with how much you get done. Projects you'd let go are sparked with an infusion of creativity and soar to completion. Bosses are happy with you and family members are pleased you’re finally catching up with jobs around the house.
If you’re looking for labour saving gadgets or time saving technology now would be a good time to hit the High Street or go online and see what unmissable bargains are available for an eagle eyed shopper like you.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Your own needs and interests will take second place as a more altruistic charitable mood opens you eyes to the plight of people who for no fault of their own are having a tough time or experiencing extreme hardship. You’ll want to play your part and do what you can to help. From raising funds and working in a charity shop to volunteering to work full time for a worthy cause you aim to get involved.
Even so sometimes it’s not always possible, but even your caring compassion is a good first step.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) You'll probably not like it that so many people you deal with on a regular basis are suddenly stuck in their own opinions or, at the very least, reluctant to change their mindset. Bosses want what they want, the way they want it and loved ones want to keep things as they are rather than try anything new. Solving problems becomes more of a problem than necessary.
Don’t knock yourself out while things are this way; relax, be cordial, smile and before long the situation will shift on its own.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) A week of inspired insights gives you a chance to advance a cause that’s close to your heart. It might be connected to your own professional or financial position or it might have a more colourful, artistic or even romantic dimension. Whatever form it takes, your ideas and focussed independent action move you nearer your ultimate goal.
In another arena a sudden call for help from someone who is uncomfortable managing conflict will see you dropping everything to run to their aid.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) You're buzzing with ideas to carry you through a whirlwind of projects and look set to put your signature stamp on an array of home decorating plans and image updates. If you have a set workspace, you'll be attacking that too, so by the time you're done every part of your life will have had an artistic facelift.
Your closest relationships flourish as you sort through old photos and review the memories they represent. A treasured family heirloom or artefact could set you off on a quest to build a collection.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You're suddenly more talkative than usual, but likely to stir up a controversy with a few of the things you say. You're no stranger to contentious discussions. You have done your research and came into some information few others are aware of, so you do know what you're talking about.
Watch where you're going, don't rush into things; moving too fast now can land you in hot water. Take a turn through a local bookstore for a hot new read that'll give you an escape from daily concerns.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) It’s great to recapture and relive happy memories with loved ones at a family gathering. This experience acts as a little reminder for you and you leave with a serious plan to change some things you're doing.
If you’ve been thinking of finding a new home then this could be the time to get out there and start actively searching for the house or flat of your dreams. If a move isn't currently on the cards, reorganise or redecorate your present home. It could be just as good for you for the time being.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) This week's challenge comes down to finding the right people at the right time. Getting them in a receptive frame of mind isn't easy and once you do, it's not permanent. If you don't manage it in the first few days, back off and wait for a more agreeable time.
People you work with remind you it's not necessary to do everything yourself. At work and at home see what you can delegate to those around you. If you have older children make sure they play their part in running the happy homestead.
