Russell Grant's Horoscopes: Dec 10 to Dec 14
December 10, 2012
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Don’t overestimate your budget. Whenever you have a chance, take advantage of sales. Cut out money off coupons and mail in rebates. Turn shopping expeditions into games. The more you save, the happier you will be. Putting everything on a credit card is simple, but it will cause tremendous headaches when the bills are due. An evasive lover’s stories aren’t adding up. See how their words mirror their actions. If there’s a discrepancy, it’s time to have a heart to heart talk.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) You’re eager to get started on a project, but you have to do some preparatory work beforehand. This drives you to distraction, but it can’t be helped. By making a detailed list of all the required materials, you’ll save yourself lots of aggravation. The last thing you want is to stop in the middle of a big job because you’ve run out of something or another. Keep receipts for everything you buy, because you might be able to get these expenses covered by your employer or an outside benefactor.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) You have a demon on your shoulder; don’t give in to it. The temptation to overindulge in food and drink is strong, but you can withstand it. Staying busy keeps you from indulging in self destructive behaviour. Stay away from colleagues who are a bad influence. You enjoy their company, yet you tend to get in trouble with these rebels. There’s lots of work to be done, and you don’t want to be saddled with a headache, stomach pains, or a hangover.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) You’re not sure where you stand with a group of friends. When you’re together, you have lots of fun, yet you’re dogged by a nagging sensation when you are apart. Although these people find you undeniably entertaining, they don’t have your best interests at heart. Think twice about sharing confidences with the people in question. If you want advice, approach an old friend who has proven their loyalty time after time. The more discerning you are, the more protected you will be.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) Don’t make promises you can’t keep. Your job may give you access to certain merchandise and services, but you won’t be able to give people free samples without getting in lots of trouble. If a relative asks for a favour, say you have to check with your boss. There’s a good chance your employer will refuse your request, since times are tight. If family members keep harping on this issue, explain that you’re not going to put your job on the line simply to keep favour with them.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) You won’t make much headway with an absent minded friend or colleague. The answers you seek are more readily available via the Internet. While it’s fun discussing the meaning of life with a respected scholar, there is work to be done. Don’t let colleagues see you talking endlessly as the task in hand falls further behind. An impending deadline is putting pressure on everybody. Your best bet for avoiding trouble is to look busy at all times. There will be plenty of time to socialise later.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Don’t pursue a relationship solely for financial gain. Although you need additional financing, forming a business alliance with a nitpicker won’t be worth it. Hold out for somebody who shares your passion for a certain subject. Together, you’ll blast through obstacles like a couple of superheroes. Are you undergoing a bad break up? Postpone a discussion about dividing assets. This is no time to tackle such a tense subject. You’ll only end up yelling at each other, and that won’t solve anything.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Be ready to deliver on a promise, even if it’s inconvenient. You have a tendency to agree to proposals as a means to get rid of people who are pestering you. This will get you in a lot of trouble. Instead of giving people the answers they want, you must be prepared to issue the occasional refusal. When you do commit to a project, follow through. If you’re going to get the recognition you want, you have to earn the public’s trust.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Don’t keep discussing your health and fitness issues at work. Colleagues will be sympathetic at first, but they’ll soon grow tired of the subject. If you’re really in distress, schedule an appointment with a medical professional. Follow their instructions to the letter. If this prescription doesn’t offer relief, get a second opinion. It’s important to be proactive about aches and pains. Complaining about them will only turn them into an obsession. Decide to beat this condition, even if it means altering your lifestyle and cutting out certain foods.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) You’re having a great time, but be sure to keep a personal promise or obligation. Set an alarm if you are prone to losing track of time. A friend is relying on you to return an item or help with a project. If you let down this loved one, your relationship may never recover. Try not to dwell on your disappointment. There will be plenty of time to enjoy your favourite activities later, when your schedule opens up. Right now you should follow a strict timetable.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Resist the urge to protect a relative from disappointment. If your loved one is going to grow, they’ll have to take a few risks. Some will pay off, while others will result in disaster. That’s all part of the human experience. If you want to offer support, do so from the sidelines. Resist the urge to rush to their side at the first sign of trouble. You must demonstrate that you have faith in your friend, even during times of trial.
