Russell Grant's horoscopes February 11 to 17By Russell Grant
February 11, 2013
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Your friends seem more animated and excited and there seems to be extra enthusiasm in the air. Let yourself have a little fun, but don't neglect and responsibilities or duties that are tied to your reputation.
Don't be caught off guard if you get a call from a family member asking for your help with a puzzling predicament; you're ability to put things right will come in handy in this situation.
Make time to spend an afternoon doing something creative, like painting or writing a fantasy.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You already probably sense it: someone close to you is troubled, but they're too shy to share it with you. At least at the beginning, you'll have to use your keen powers of perception to find out what’s going on. Once the issue is brought to the light of day, things will go smoothly enough, largely due to your compassionate approach.
Something you see or hear may be the spark that gets you thinking about an old flame; if conditions are right it could be interesting to get in touch with them again
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Displaying your individuality is one thing, but behaving in a deliberately rebellious way for no real reason is unattractive. Give those close to you a break and stop being so argumentative.
If the travel bug is biting you, don’t be afraid to just get up and go; your spontaneity will be its own reward and the change of surroundings will be an inspiration, maybe even a turning point in your thinking. Your unique slant on life gives rise to a philosophy that attracts others to join you in a campaign of sorts.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Although you don’t like people tinkering with your routines, you’ll make life easier if you just accept that change is inevitable. With a little time and practice you’ll find the new way is the best way and then you’ll be recommending it to all your friends and fellow workers.
There’s nothing like a song from long ago to stir memories of special people and events; a brief bout of nostalgia makes you want to get in touch with long lost friends or even old flames. Will they be glad to hear from you? I wonder.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) People of different countries, creeds and cultures stimulate your intellectual interest or even your romantic interest. You’ll enjoy chatting and maybe even flirting with them. As you welcome the chance to mix and mingle with a wide assortment of people, viewing new or foreign films adds to your fun; even if you can’t actually get out of town, you can take a cinema trip.
Attending to home repairs may not seem like an exciting prospect, but it’s well worth doing. “A stitch in time” as they say.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) There's a lot going on these days, but you’ll handle it all even if it involves dealing with several different people that are clamouring for your attention. There are many who think you're more fun to be around than you used to be. Even so, try not to spread yourself too thin as some time spent in quiet reflection will be good for you.
If you’re going to meet friends don't be surprised if you get side-tracked by an unexpected and pleasant diversion that kicks off a series of events you could not have predicted.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) Take a long hard look at where your finances are or you could very easily let this slide too long and end up in some difficulty down the road. If dealing with a cash conundrum doesn't appeal to you, find a professional you can turn to for guidance.
Doing something for someone else is a good way to beat the blues. When you're asked to donate your time to a charity you'd like to agree, but think twice before saying “Yes”, because once you’ve given your word repercussions will follow you if you break it.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) It's surely wise to watch your health and get advice, especially if an unexpected turn in your situation seems to warrant it. Sticking to a sensible diet will keep you able to fit in your clothes, but taking vitamins and getting proper rest are also very important. This is true at almost any time of year.
Break a tradition that's gone stale and possibly even holding you back, it's time you started to take better control of your routine and show the people around you what you're really made of. You can do it.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Time is certainly a most precious commodity and you rarely feel you have enough; this week's no exception. Organisations that represent various worthy causes want to get you on board and you will enjoy pitching in and helping out, it’s just a matter of scheduling.
An attractive, but elusive individual captures your imagination; if you’re free to pursue this it could be quite an interesting adventure. Two hearts that enjoy freedom can enjoy it together and double their pleasure.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) It will be a challenge to keep your temper as you're about to cross paths with individuals and situations that will annoy you. Circumstances lead you into a gathering where the spiritual topics under discussion get you asking provocative questions.
In itself this is neither positive nor negative but much will depend on what you do afterwards. You have something important to share with a younger person who is about to make an unwise decision. It will take tact and diplomacy to get them back on the right track.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Although you may not be getting the kind or the amount of attention you feel you deserve from the people around you, you can still make your mark by working behind the scenes. Don’t be afraid to complain if you believe people aren’t doing their job. From local government and the shopping mall to your local pub or restaurant you won’t want to put up with slow or second rate service.
Someone you meet who initially annoys you ends up giving you something to have a laugh about.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) A new purchase brings questions and criticisms from those closest to you, but you're determined to have what you want; obtaining the object of your desire means more to you than the buzz your actions create.
Keep an ear open to what's going on at work; things that happen behind the scenes are the foundation for the next series of big changes that could affect you. Whether this seems to be a plus or minus is only your perception of it, but still keep your finger on the pulse of events.
