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

Aries (Mar21/Apr20): Impulsive behaviour will get you in trouble. When you start getting angry, take a few deep breaths. Avoid the person or situation that is getting under your skin. After a few moments of quiet, you’ll regain control of your emotions. If one of your family continues to tease you, it’s time to cut off the relationship. There’s no reason you should subject yourself to such manipulative behaviour. Establish a boundary and don’t let anyone make you feel guilty about this decision.

Taurus (Apr21/May21): A secret enemy is causing trouble for you. An authority figure might start bearing down a little hard, questioning your motives and checking your work. Remain calm when subjected to this scrutiny. It will soon become obvious you have nothing to hide. A neighbour or relative is giving you mixed signals. If you sense they don’t like being teased, back off. Some people are very self-conscious and can’t handle being mocked, even in a good-natured way. Respect their feelings.

Gemini (May22/Jun21): You’re ready to challenge an unfair rule or an obstreperous organisation. Well-intentioned friends and relatives will urge you to keep your head down. Keeping silent is not an option for you. Your willingness to speak as you find will put you on an exciting path. People who admire your bravery will seek your friendship. Soon, you’ll be contacted by fellow justice lovers. They might prompt you to start an online organisation devoted to making the world a better place.

Cancer (Jun22/Jul23): Using unfair methods to get ahead will come back to haunt you. If you want respect, you should work hard to get it. Acquire as much experience and knowledge as possible. Pursue an advanced degree by taking online courses. Getting your ideas across to a community organisation will be challenging. You always speak from the heart, which can make certain people uncomfortable. If you sense your audience isn’t reacting well to your approach, adopt a kinder tone. Their defences will start to melt.

Leo (Jul24/Aug23): Intolerance is making you miserable. Whether you find someone’s beliefs offensive or another person is questioning your values, it’s time to take a break. Stop subjecting yourself to their ideas. After a relaxing interlude, you’ll rediscover your equilibrium. Official paperwork will be delayed. You might have to contact an agency several times before this matter is resolved. Breathe deep and remember your sense of humour. Be unfailingly polite to everyone you encounter, even if they’re incompetent or rude.

Virgo (Aug24/Sep23): A friend’s negativity is weighing on your heart. No matter how much you encourage them to cheer up, they’re intent on being miserable. Back away and busy yourself with things that bring you joy. It’s not your job to rescue anybody. When your spirits sink, listen to uplifting music. Sing along and dance. Having an outlet for your emotions and maybe your frustrations will remind you that life is really very beautiful. Just the experience of being alive is worthwhile and precious.

Libra (Sep24/Oct23): Disagreements with your best friend or romantic partner are causing stress. You’ve always been passionate about promoting justice. When someone has an opinion that seems unfair, it rubs you the wrong way. Try not to be too judgemental. Variety is the spice of life. You’re increasingly disenchanted with a means of making money. Give yourself permission to try a new line of work. Someone with your intelligence can find a way to cultivate wealth that doesn’t offend your conscience.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22): An illness or injury should be taken seriously. Changing your approach to duty can mark a return to wellness. Although you enjoy doing a good job, you must not let work define you. There’s more to you than what you produce. A legal matter could be decided against you. Instead of pressing for a different result, accept defeat graciously and move on to something else. Taking an advanced course could be a welcome diversion. You’ll especially enjoy learning a complicated skill that’s highly practical.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21): A childish temper tantrum will reflect badly on you. When you experience a setback, stay calm. Treat the situation as an opportunity to correct your course, rather than a personal failure. Your mature attitude will make a great impression on an authority figure. It’s important to review your financial statements with a fine-toothed comb. If you discover any mysterious charges or fees, notify your bank or credit card company immediately. Nipping this problem in the bud will save you lots of time, money and aggravation.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20): A disagreement with someone who is always criticising you will actually clear the air. You’re tired of listening to grumbling and grousing. Stand up for yourself and make it clear you won’t tolerate this any longer. Demand the respect you deserve. If you’ve been thinking about undergoing a health regime, now is a great time to begin. Improving your diet or becoming more active will cause your energy to soar. Imagine how good it will feel when you get out of bed feeling energised.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19): Giving a sarcastic response to an innocent question will make you look foolish. Treat a newcomer with kindness and compassion. By taking time out of your busy schedule to answer someone’s questions in an online chatroom, you’ll make a good friend. A health problem has its roots in stress. Taking up a relaxation technique is strongly advised. By getting into the habit of releasing resistance, you’ll rediscover your natural zest for life. Calling someone who makes you laugh can be therapeutic.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20): Money can’t buy happiness. If you’re worried about when you’re next getting paid, purposefully change tact. Pour your energy into an activity that brings you joy. Painting, playing music or acting will make you forget your financial troubles and remind you what’s truly important. Taking a gamble will backfire. Don’t waste your hard-earned cash on lottery tickets or games of chance. If you’ve developed a crush on a friend, don’t confess your feelings. It’s better to keep things platonic.
