You could be asked to take on a responsible role in a team situation and will get more out of this than you anticipate. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You could get the training you want by taking the unorthodox route. Studying with an expert or reading manuals on the side will put you ahead of the pack.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's one of those wonderful days when you get through a lot without feeling as if you have been exerting yourself at all.

Forget about duty and responsibility: plan a leisurely day with a difference. Emotional satisfaction comes through focusing on whatever makes your life worth living. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Your mind is geared to detail today; you will be surprised at what you notice because of this. Solutions to career and financial problems could come to you more easily when you pay attention to the finer points. If an out of town trip is planned you would do better to make an early start. This way you will find the time you need later to attend to trivial but time consuming concerns that can no longer be overlooked. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com [content] You can't help it; it is in your nature to be cautious and to look for loopholes in financial deals. Even if your instinct tells you to trust those you are dealing with, a part of you wonders how far you can rely on them. Today, in financial and legal matters, try to let go a little and be a shade more trusting. The world is not covered with trip wires. Some people are trustworthy. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You have big dreams about your career, which is great, but your fantasies bear little relation to your reality. Now is the time to get your head out of the clouds and put your feet back on the ground. If you have a particular job in mind, get the necessary training, even if it takes years to get certified. If you're not sure which direction to take, meet with a careers advisor. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you're entering a legal agreement with a partner, has at least one of you read the small print? You aren't in the mood for anything that taxes your brain but a sloppy attitude will confuse matters in the future. Fund raising activities go well and you are overwhelmed by goodwill and generosity. If you are fighting a good cause, support is almost unanimous. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Improved work conditions could be on the way. Perhaps you'll be given a bigger office. Maybe you'll be handed a plum assignment. It's even possible you'll be able to open your own business. It looks as though the duties involved will be close to your heart. If you've ever wanted to be a stay at home parent, that could be a possibility, too. Don't be so quick to discount the idea, even if it seems impossible. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If life or a close relationship doesn't seem very wonderful, take heart: the future will bring more to enjoy. Little things get you down and you just aren't in the mood to smile. It could be a case of getting out of bed on the wrong side; tomorrow you will feel much better. For that reason, the least you say, the better. You don't want to needlessly upset anyone, do you? (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Beware of putting too much emphasis on people's looks, as appearances can be deceiving. Rely on your intuition when forming work alliances. A colleague who seems lazy and light-hearted may be a powerful creative force. By teaming up with this person, you can develop a valuable product or impressive idea that will boost your bank balance. If you're not employed, let an expert teach you a trade or craft. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you feel like spreading your wings, start looking for new options. A long held ambition could come closer to realisation. You need to be slightly more aggressive in pushing for what you want. Make positive use of your energy to mastermind a work project that requires your particular skills and talents. The more you enjoy your work, the less of a chore it will be! (c)2006 RussellGrant.com You're more determined than ever to make a cherished dream come true. A sibling or neighbour can be instrumental in reaching your goal.

Never fear; your savings will mount quicker than you think. Meanwhile, keep your eyes on the prize. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com There is no reason why you shouldn't trust your own thoughts and feelings. Even if others are keen to point out possible flaws and ill advised aspects of your ideas and intentions.

Draw on your strong determination to prove to the lot of them exactly what you can do. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's easy to make headway with a neighbour, sibling or cousin who needs assistance. This person may have resisted your help in the past, but that will change today. Be careful to keep your love life hidden from an impressionable child.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com A partner or child's behaviour might cause you some slight concern. They may be moody, volatile and even hostile. Wait a few days before saying anything. The fact is they're in the grip of that strange mood which comes over people from time to time for no apparent reason. All you can do is be patient and put up with their odd behaviour. Wait until the mood wears off. As far as possible, don't draw attention to their conduct. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com People have accused you of being stubborn and set in your ways.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're able to talk anybody into anything, so use this power wisely! At times, you will feel guilty about how easy it is to manipulate colleagues, friends and lovers.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You've got penetrating insights to the motivations of a neighbour or sibling. In the past, this person's actions may have totally befuddled you.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com A role model may inspire you to take charge of an important creative project. Normally, you're content to follow somebody else's lead. This time, though, you have a unique vision that can only be realised by you. Entrusting others with this endeavour will only lead to heartache. Therefore, you need to take the helm.

Take a sensible approach when planning your schedule. Think about everything you hope to get through before bedtime arrives and if this is too much, don't hesitate to delegate. The best way to cope is by finishing one job before starting on the next. Joining forces with an in-law will help you understand one another better. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com New opportunities will bring changes in your life that should ultimately make you feel more secure. Although there is a financial incentive, this is not the only inducement.

They want to discuss some personal affairs. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Pay no attention to friends who are trying to goad you into reckless behaviour. True, you have a reputation for being somewhat predictable, but there's nothing wrong with that. You're especially adept at saving your money for a rainy day.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com Creative ideas and ambitious plans fill your mind making you forgetful or neglectful. You are motivated by thoughts you feel are inspired but other people aren't so enthusiastic.

Give people time to get used to your suggestions. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Taking charge of a work project requires every ounce of your energy and imagination. Fortunately, you're ready for this challenge, and can draw on your vast emotional reserves to get the job done.
