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

Aries (Mar21/Apr20)

An unexpected bonus or financial gift will be received. Don’t tell too many people about it or someone will ask for a loan. Instead of spending this money on luxuries, put it away for a rainy day. A friend of a friend will give you some good ideas on how you might promote your latest projects.

Taurus (Apr21/May21)

You’ve been allowing a close friend or partner to get their own way and this has become a habit. It’s hard to work out when it started but they have been manipulating you and you have allowed this to continue. Just so they know you’re onto them, let them know they cannot wrap you around their little finger anymore.

Gemini (May22/June21)

Working with someone who isn’t very organised is starting to annoy you. Although you aren’t a perfectionist, you like to feel you do a good job of whatever you take on. At the moment you’re having to do someone else’s work again and this is taking up too much of your time. Encourage people to be more careful.

Cancer (June22/July23)

Doing something new and different for fun will pave a new future for you. Take this chance to work towards your most cherished goals. A new hobby will be a great outlet for you to show off your natural talents. Be creative. Surprise benefits will come through a family friend. This could involve a future trip or holiday.

Leo (July24/Aug23)

Advancing your ambitions quietly will give you the edge on rivals before they know it. Working behind the scenes will help you sense subtle changes that are taking shape in your life. You can observe what is going on without people realising what you are doing. You are on the right track.

Virgo (Aug24/Sept23)

If you’re attending a small business function it will be a good idea to take your business cards. Your chances of finding a dream job aren’t just a dream but reality. You feel inspired to try something new and different. With a friend’s encouragement you could unearth a new skill or hobby.

Libra (Sept24/Oct23)

Someone hasn’t been honest with you. You’re annoyed with them for having deceived you and with yourself for having believed them. Now you know the truth, you are justified in being suspicious of their motives. Try not to dwell for too long on disappointments. Giving in to negative thoughts will turn luck away from your door.

Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22)

Taking a practical approach to outstanding work will help you get jobs that have been standing too long out of the way. Putting new methods into place will help you get your work done more efficiently and effectively in the future. Your clever ideas will bring the kind of response you desire from others.

Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21)

It might feel as if there are more misunderstandings between you and a partner than agreements. A joint arrangement isn’t going well. A partner won’t be happy but you need to make some changes. It will take time and a lot of effort for you to get back in tune with each other.

Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20)

New interests and diversions will add variety to your travel and social plans. Even if it’s a short distance trip to meet up with a small group of friends, anything is better than doing nothing. It feels like your life has been on pause for too long now and you are itching for movement and excitement.

Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19)

Take your time and you can take pride in your workmanship. Be thorough in all that you do. This is not a good time to cut corners especially where your work, health and other obligations are concerned. Take a practical and sensible approach to your main concerns.

Pisces (Feb20/Mar20)

Ignoring some issues in the hope that they will go away will not help you solve your problems. It would be better to face up to whatever or whomever it is you are trying so hard to avoid. Don’t be reluctant to discuss difficulties with a colleague. This can help you see your situation from a different perspective.
