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

Aries (Mar21/Apr20)

It’s starting to feel as if you have too much on your plate. If you’ve taken on a friend or neighbour’s responsibilities or you’re standing in for a sick colleague, there is little if any time left for yourself. You’ve gone above and beyond the call of duty. Listen to a relative who is telling you it’s time to think of yourself.

Taurus (Apr21/May21)

You’ve always been careful with your cash and if a bonus, refund or unexpected financial gift comes your way, park your money where it will earn the most interest. Developments will call for you to give attention to joint financial arrangements and other money matters. Evening is a good time to discuss a potentially embarrassing subject with a friend.

Gemini (May22/June21)

Getting involved with a charity or fund-raising project will be a fine way to expand your life experiences while being of service to others. One of your favourite pastimes could be in the picture now which means travel is on the cards. Everything will happen so fast that it’s hard to take it all in.

Cancer (June22/July23)

A situation will call for some quick thinking. Flexibility and creativity will be needed to solve a problem and you seem to be the one who comes up with the best answers. It will be easy to persuade others to go along with your ideas simply because they can’t come up with anything better themselves.

Leo (July24/Aug23)

The social scene is becoming more active and this will bring new romantic possibilities. Are you single? Your fun-loving spirit could win you the heart you want. If you already have a partner, there will be benefits through sharing some happy moments in their life. Be ready to pit your wits against others in an online competition or quiz.

Virgo (Aug24/Sept23)

You can’t keep doing other people favours and keep on top of your own work. If you’re starting each day feeling tired before you’ve even got down to business, you need to start slowing down. Get important matters out of the way early on and make time in your busy schedule to pamper yourself. Everyone needs a little time to themselves.

Libra (Sept24/Oct23)

It will do you good to be more assertive. People will show you more respect when you stand up for yourself. Someone will try to manoeuvre a situation to their advantage. Don’t let them. Once you make a decision, stand by it. Don’t lose faith in a relationship that’s been difficult. It will be stronger than you might think.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22)

You’re witnessing magical moments in amongst some difficult times. This helps uplift you and reminds you that a situation who has been getting you down is only temporary. Just one or two more steps will take you onto a better path. Your life will soon improve and there will be more cooperation in romance and friendships.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21)

Avoid tiresome people who try to prompt you to make negative decisions about a goal you are more than capable of achieving. If someone or something is getting you down, put it aside, do something else and return to it another day. If someone you trust suggests they can do you a favour, accept their offer.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20)

Be honest about your feelings when talking to a partner or close friend. Be truthful about your hopes for the future. This gives them a better idea on where they stand with you. If you have different long-term goals, take this chance to discuss this dilemma and how it might affect your joint future.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19)

You can’t sit back and watch a gradually worsening situation cause chaos and disruption around you. It is time to take action to rectify the problem. This could place you at odds with a higher up or someone with an overbearing personality. This doesn’t matter as you will always fight for what you believe in.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20)

Great results will be achieved through combining positive action with positive thinking. If you want to be successful you need to be prepared to put in the effort. Don’t find excuses as to why you can’t attend important meetings especially if you are seeking funds for a joint business venture.
