Russell Grant's horoscopes February 4 to 10By Russell Grant
February 04, 2013
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) You're in a great place currently so follow your intuition and your heart to the people and places that call to you.
You've only so much time, why waste it on activities you dislike?
Take this opportunity to get some of your plans and theories off the drawing board and put into practice. Some might sink without trace, but others could be real winners; all they need is the chance to grow and prosper.
Plan a special evening for yourself and the one you hold most dear. You won’t regret it.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) You start the week emotionally connected to someone who matters a great deal to you so take this opportunity to open your heart to them and explain your hopes and dreams for the future together.
Soon you'll find yourself in trying circumstances with people at work or in your neighbourhood who disagree with your plans or proposals. Taking on the concerns of a group has never been easy, but if you're positively motivated you'll eventually be able to win everyone round to your way of thinking.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Change doesn't worry you, as you’re ready for anything; but watch out someone with a simmering temper is getting ready to let off steam.
Don't fight fire with fire this week. Make completing a job before week's end a priority. Once you immerse yourself in it, you'll hardly feel you're working at all and it'll be easy to see it through. You've enough energy to take on almost any task on at short notice especially when a friend asks for your advice or guidance about a sensitive or even an intimate issue.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Although the week starts on a seemingly stressful note, you manage to work through things pretty steadily in your usual organised and grounded way.
When all is said and done you'll feel you didn't have to exert very much effort to stay on top of things.
Thoughts of making a dramatic change keep recurring, so sit down with your friend or partner and discuss the reasons for and against it. If you do decide to go ahead, draw up a “To Do” list so you can tackle the shift one step at a time.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) Your ability to talk your way into an opportunity is not so hot this week, but don't worry; it's only a temporary glitch. You'll soon bounce back and be your usual witty, charming and beguiling self. People like having you around because you always have interesting news and views to share.
Surprising information comes your way from someone you've not been in touch with for a while. You should arrange to get together with them to find out more; there’s more to this than meets the eye.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) What you plan to do and what you actually end up doing will be two different things this week. You may have your schedule all mapped out, but unexpected calls or surprise meetings mean your carefully constructed arrangements will fly out of the window.
It is important for you to accept the inevitable and go with the flow of events. Sticking to tightly organised routines may help you get your chores done but it also means you will be missing out on some of the happy impromptu joys of life.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) Don't just work hard, work smart. Give yourself space to enjoy a social life. Think back; you've been good to lots of people in the past, so much so that if you were to ask, they'd be happy to help you out.
Be on your guard when dealing with people in authority; it's best show how receptive and cooperative you are when face to face, even in you do your own thing later on. Throwing a temper tantrum won’t do any good, so take a deep breath and don’t go saying things you’ll regret in times to come.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) What seemed like a bit of a risk a short time ago is starting to grow on you now. If you've done your research, and feel like an adventure, take a chance on something different. It could mean venturing into uncharted waters, but you love a challenge, be it career related, connected with making money or maybe something more romantic and sexy.
A dose of the great outdoors will put some colour in your cheeks. Wrap up well and head outdoors for a brisk walk, a bike ride or a leisurely stroll.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Finicky people get on your nerves, but only if you let them. Turn your attention to something that delights you and before you know it, you'll have dismissed all petty annoyances from your mind.
Put family needs in the forefront of your mind by reaching out to a relative you've not seen or contacted in a while. What a lovely surprise you'll give them if you ring up or, better yet, arrange a visit. An old friend may be as dear to you as a family member, so include them in your thoughts too.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Keep your expectations reasonable and practical. Those you live or work with will value your down to earth, pragmatic good sense so this is your opportunity to share an idea or plan you’ve been thinking through for quite a while. You shouldn’t expect everyone to instantly accept everything you have to say, but give people time and gradually they will come round to your point of view.
Expect to hear someone close has made a surprise decision that will mean a change of direction for you or them.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) Take a minute and think. Have you done something that has upset someone? Now’s the time to build bridges and put things right. You'll really turn things around if you write a sincere, heartfelt note. In this super electronic age such a personal gesture will stand out.
If you have made a promise or commitment you must be sure that you don’t let people down. Keeping your word wins you a good reputation as well as friends who'll like to feel that they can depend on you come what may.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) You may have missed out on a wonderful opportunity a while ago, but don't lose heart, you’ll have another chance by the middle of this week. Give it your all; this is not a time to be bashful, shy or modest. The more you put yourself “out there” the more certain your chances of success will be.
Putting a busybody in their place will take tact and patience, but you'll handle it nicely. It's a fine week to shop for unusual items, so check out antique stores or craft markets and see what you find.
