What do the stars hold for you this Friday? Astrologer Russell Grant reveals all...

Aries (Mar21/Apr20): A relative keeps disturbing your peace. Get into the habit of turning off your mobile at night. This will allow you to sleep peacefully, even if your family member is crying out for attention. There’s nothing wrong with setting healthy boundaries. Passing a test will be more difficult than expected. Instead of spending hours on social media, spend most of your energy on reading, studying and doing research. Eventually, even the most elusive concepts will sink in and make sense.

Taurus (Apr21/May21): Following the crowd won’t make you happy. Obey a strong urge to take the path less travelled. The journey will be lonely but rewarding. Someone like you can’t be held to social conventions. You’re meant to break barriers, not uphold them. Your love life is undergoing a dry spell. At times like these, it’s important to be good to yourself. Spend a little extra time on your appearance. Compliment yourself at every opportunity. Above all, get into the habit of enjoying the finer things in life.

Gemini (May22/Jun21): Your professional life no longer consumes your every thought. Rather than participating in the rat race, you’re inclined to develop art projects. Whether this means writing a novel, designing a fashion line or assembling a photography exhibit doesn’t matter. Listen to your heart. If you’re not sure how to evaluate your work, show it to a trusted friend. Their feedback will be helpful because it’s constructive without being deflating. Think about giving them a beautiful token of your appreciation.

Cancer (Jun22/Jul23): If you lack experience, you must take some advanced online courses. Don’t be shy about admitting your ignorance. By asking a teacher for help, you’ll get a fresh appreciation for their expertise. An upsetting health condition demands attention. Get a medical consultation as soon as possible. It’s important to have a good rapport with your doctor. Look for a practitioner who respects your feelings and listens to your concerns. With their help, your natural wellbeing will be restored.

Leo (Jul24/Aug23): Instead of working on several creative projects at once, focus on one of them. The sooner you put the finishing touches on an artistic endeavour, the happier you will be. Soon, your natural enthusiasm will return, giving you an attractive glow. Money from an inheritance or legal settlement will be delayed. Finding another source of income will take the pressure off you. Someone with your organisational skills will find satisfaction working as a virtual executive assistant, librarian or systems administrator.

Virgo (Aug24/Sep23): The terms of a social contract are confusing. Don’t sign this agreement until you submit it to an expert. This legal professional will propose some clarifications. It’s so important to know what is expected of you and how you will be paid. Your family isn’t being very supportive. They think you’re chasing a dream that will never come true. Don’t let their negative outlook poison you. By maintaining an upbeat attitude, you’ll get an opportunity to realise your potential against all odds.

Libra (Sep24/Oct23): Confusing rules make it difficult to know what your responsibilities are. It’s time to demand a written set of instructions. If you can’t get clarification, don’t place too much importance on these duties. You are many things, but a mind reader isn’t one of them. Making plans will give you a sense of purpose and meaning. Although you might not be able to pinpoint the exact date by which to carry out a project, it’s still enjoyable to make a rough sketch of what you’d like to do.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22): No matter what you do to win someone’s trust, it doesn’t have an effect. This is one of those situations when it’s best to accept defeat and move on to better things. You’re a loyal person who deserves to be granted the benefit of the doubt. If you feel restless, take this opportunity to clear out a cluttered storage space. Once you make room in a single drawer or closet, you’ll be inspired to move to another area. Soon, your entire household will be streamlined and tidy.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21): A relative keeps sending mixed signals. You’re never sure if they truly care about you or not. Stop giving this manipulator so much power over your feelings. Spending more energy on people who are kind and supportive. An emotional outburst will reflect badly on you. When your anger starts to mount, do some deep breathing exercises. Once you are calm, ask yourself why you continue to subject yourself to such a stressful situation. It’s time to move on to greener pastures.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20): Are you tired of being misunderstood? Get into the habit of listening more than you speak. This can be especially helpful during virtual meetings when people are intimidated by your powerful personality. Being receptive to others will prompt them to let down their defences with you. Working behind the scenes makes you feel isolated. You miss the days when you were surrounded by a big team of workers. Instead of yearning for the good old days, make a list of the positive things about your current situation.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19): Adopt a practical approach to money. Living from one payday to the next creates stress that can be avoided. Get into the habit of putting a percentage of each cash infusion into savings. Soon, your nest egg will cushion you from emergencies. It’s a wise idea to eat meals that are mainly comprised of fresh produce, lean protein and whole grains. Avoiding processed food will cause your energy to soar. Soon, you’ll sleep better and wake up feeling refreshed and energised.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20): Spend a few moments imagining your ideal life. You tend to be a people pleaser. Sacrificing your needs to make others comfortable is no longer an option. It’s time to delve deeply into a spiritual or creative practice that makes your heart sing. Some people will accuse you of being self-obsessed for taking a different path. Turn a deaf ear to these complaints. Your first responsibility is to make yourself happy. It’s much easier to be of service to others when you’re content.
