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

Aries (Mar21/Apr20)

Shouting to get what you want isn’t going to work when you are up against people who are determined to do the opposite. If you sense someone is about to object to your suggestions, find another way to put your views across. You can be persuasive in subtle ways if you try.

Taurus (Apr21/May21)

A friend or neighbour who is feeling down is taking up a lot of your time. You want to help them but you have to start thinking about your own health. Their company is pulling you down when what they are going through preys on your mind and colours your thinking. Start limiting the time you spend together.

Gemini (May22/June21)

You seem to have no choice but to take on tasks you don’t normally do. A colleague’s long absenteeism is causing problems in the workplace. You understand they can’t help being ill but when you’re asked to do jobs you’ve never done before, this is slowing down your progress in other areas.

Cancer (June22/July23)

A partner is in two minds about continuing with a project you started together. You can’t work out why they aren’t enjoying this as much as they used to. You want to make the most of the opportunities this is bringing your way and it may be that you will have to continue without them.

Leo (July24/Aug23)

You’ve been so busy lately that you’ve missed a lot of what has been going on around you. Something you overhear makes you realise a situation you had been vaguely aware of was more eventful than a friend made it out to be. You want to know more and you want to know why you weren’t told the full story.

Virgo (Aug24/Sept23)

Avoid a confrontation of wills in the workplace. The moment you sense someone getting antagonistic and awkward, take a step back. Go with an inspiration to work towards your personal goals. Some good news will confirm you have chosen the right path. An offer or opportunity will be like a dream come true.

Libra (Sept24/Oct23)

Seeing someone flirt with your partner without either of them realising you are watching will confuse you. You might feel their behaviour isn’t as innocent as it looks. If you bring this up in conversation they won’t understand why you’re making such a big issue over it. You feel they’re hiding something. Trust your instincts.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22)

A job you used to enjoy is now becoming quite a chore. You are growing bored with tasks that once stimulated you. This is a sign you are ready for a change. There’s something exciting in a challenge that is presented to you later today. This is your chance to break out of a rut.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21)

You are ready now for one of the biggest challenges you have ever faced. It is through having been able to help others achieve their goals that you realise you have it in you to go far. The gratitude being shown for your support and encouragement will be sincere and will inspire you to go after new aims of your own.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20)

You can’t help it but your imagination will fill in the gaps when a friend or partner is saying very little. You had hoped to share a meaningful conversation but they aren’t being very cooperative. This leaves you none the wiser and you had wanted to know their thoughts and feelings on an important issue.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19)

As much as you are tempted, don’t try to push events along. You’re eager to receive news you have been waiting for, for some time. If events go as you are hoping this will mean important changes ahead. You are dreading another delay but this is a situation where you need to be patient. It is not a time for haste or impetuosity.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20)

Bite your lips if a housemate accuses you of being lazy. Getting defensive will only add to the tension that’s already in your household. Quietly do what you have to do and if that’s not enough, they are the one with the problem. A website you visit regularly will be inaccessible which is frustrating when you had wanted to visit this site for a specific reason.
