Russell Grant’s horoscopes October 15 to 21By Russell Grant
October 15, 2012
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Don’t go solo and try to do everything singlehanded as the needs and wants of those closest to you are just as important as your own. Plan a special outing for two and you'll have friendly or romantic fun; it's all up to you.
Do a lot of thinking before you cut chords with an employer. Have you the temperament to joyfully work from home; can you handle how this might limit your interaction with other people? In a way, this is perfect timing, as improving relationships all around should be your main aim.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) You put too much pressure on yourself thinking you've got to please everyone when it's just not possible. Focus on doing what's reasonable for those who matter most and enjoy the sense of satisfaction that comes with having done a good deed.
Your ability to express yourself through creative activity is lifted, so dust off your talents and use them. It's easy for you to find the right words to explain your ideas or feelings, but on the negative side resist the temptation to be unnecessarily sarcastic.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Is that jingling sound the play of a few extra coins in your pocket? Does that make you want to show off to impress someone special? Ask yourself if that would be all for show or if you have sincere intentions toward this person. Better to be real now so you can stay that way in the future.
Something that happened last month may have dampened your outlook and made you feel you've not contributed enough; time spent in the service of a good cause can restore your hopes and sense of worth.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Something or someone you're clinging onto won't become yours just because you demand it. Don't you realise that when you allow others their freedom they're likely to feel more amicably toward you? Know that whatever slips away on its own does so because it's served its purpose in your life and is no longer needed. Let it go with a grateful heart.
A family member will be more receptive to your new plan or idea if you first give them the kind of attention they enjoy and that means listening as well as talking.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) This is a genuinely productive time for research and investigation; using the internet as a tool has great advantages, but you may also enjoy delving into dusty archives at a local library, museum or records office.
An opportunity to travel will be coming your way soon, and if you're of a mind to, you can use it to further your education. Personal privacy becomes an issue when prying eyes turn in your direction, although you may not mind when you see exactly who's doing the peeking.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) More than a few introductions made at a local social will open the door to a network of new friendships. As you start to explore this possibility you'll overcome any sense of isolation that had been bothering you.
Upsets at work give rise to feelings of frustration and set you thinking more seriously about making a dramatic change in direction. Don't do anything extreme until you have definite information or a clearly stated offer; you don't want to be left standing out in the cold, do you?
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Don't put off something you enjoy doing until the last minute, it's never too early to start your Christmas shopping. Have fun finding the parts or pieces you'll need to create artistic gifts.
Your impulse to make this year's gift giving a more personal and special experience is a wonderful one; people really appreciate something individually crafted for them. It shows thoughtfulness and makes the recipients remember that even if there are troubles in the world, there's a loving vibration alive in you.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Holding on to outdated or little used items gets in the way of your progress. Take a look at all the clutter you've accumulated and ask yourself what purpose it's serving. Start chucking stuff out and creating empty space.
You may have been sidetracked by the idea that your value as a person is strictly tied to your work or career. Your friends see you as an individual with talents and qualities that go far beyond what you do for a living, so take a good look and see what others see.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Stand up for the truth and take responsibility; there's really no one else to point the finger at. New friendships that begin now will have an excellent chance of growing in the future if you're honest about who you are and what you want.
If you're reluctant to do that, think how things will go if certain facts come out later and you're caught in a web you'll have to explain your way out of. You're likely to attract someone who will challenge you; this is your chance to forge a meaningful relationship.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) All things connected with art, culture and beauty are the main focus of your week ahead. If you're in the market for items to enhance your environment, you'll find just what you’re looking for now. Choosing articles that appeal to your eye is as important as the long term investment value of the objects in question.
A minor adjustment in the way you dress makes a big difference in the kind of attention you attract, so if you want romance, think romantic. Follow your intuition.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) If you let family tensions or worries about your job affect other areas of your life you'll soon find yourself overly stressed and generally out of sorts with people who deserve better from you. Talking with a sympathetic listener can be a good outlet for some of your concerns, but be sure the one you open your heart to is also the type who'll keep your private information private.
Physical activity in the form of sports, an exercise program, or dance can be helpful as long as you don't overdo it.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) If you use the first part of the week to put your house in order, by weekend you'll be able to focus on expressing who you are to the people that matter most in your life. Things are going well at work as you apply your personal skills base to the job at hand. You get noticed when you're the first to implement the use of a new strategy or a unique tool.
If the shopping bug bites you'll discover that bargains can be found just about everywhere. You just have to look.
