Through doing someone a good turn you will be stockpiling kindness for yourself should you need it in the future. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Be careful about what you wish for because today it may well come true. If single and at the start of a long-distance relationship, are you sure it is what you want? Before getting more deeply involved there are questions you should both consider. For instance will either one of you be willing to relocate in the future? If attached, no matter what your plans for the weeks ahead, you will be getting a great deal of support from your significant other. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're giving your boss mixed signals, partly because you're not sure if you want to stay in your job.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com Although you've always prided yourself on being an aloof rebel, you can't help but be attracted to effusive, amorous types. One such a person could enter your life between now and late July. You hate to admit it, but you melt when this person lavishes you with kisses, cuddles and caresses. Resist the urge to play it cool with your lover, or he or she could slip through your fingers. Open your heart. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You find out today whether or not you can trust a newcomer to your world. Their actions may reveal they are looking after their own interests and no-one else's.

If you don't want to miss out, act first and think about it later! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Daydreaming could undermine your progress today; try to get the bare minimum done today. Go out dancing with your friends after hours; you'll love getting lost in the music. Alternatively, you may want to rent some romantic black-and-white movie this evening. One thing is for sure: mundane realities like cooking and housekeeping will not be high on your list of priorities. Give yourself permission to fantasise. Everyone's life could use a little more colour. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You might need to take time off a group endeavour you have recently been involved in. Other matters now need your attention. The tasks you are expected to tackle today will be best done solo. Take care not to quarrel with a friend around noon. For most of the day, peaceful pleasures and quiet people are what you need most of all. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Resist the urge to isolate from colleagues, especially if a project becomes fraught with complications. It's important to exercise teamwork skills now. Home will be a welcome break from workaday responsibilities. You may decide to spend a cosy evening with family to going out to a rowdy party.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com High levels of intuition help you see behind the facade that someone you work with has recently adopted. Now you understand more about this person, you find your attitude towards them changing. There are moments you might wish you weren't so charitable. Attending to other peoples' needs may mean sacrificing some of your own interests. You need to do this, even so, out of the goodness of your heart. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Today presents a divine opportunity to strengthen your body and overcome illness. If you're not satisfied with a doctor's advice, get a second opinion.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com If domestic harmony is lacking in your family world, today you should make an effort and do something about it. Have you been neglecting your responsibilities in this area?

Hope and happiness are only a heart-to-heart away! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You have talents that you haven't explored, mostly because of your present situation. Somehow, you haven't felt comfortable venturing into unfamiliar territory. Perhaps it is because others have so much invested in your current role. Today presents a glorious opportunity to break out of this mould and explore the world around you. Exploring your untapped potential could increase your earnings. Think about taking a second job, just to gain experience. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com The deeper you look into a joint financial or legal matter, the more undecided you feel about it. You might suspect someone isn't being as honest with you as they have been making out. Or a partner is not as sensible as you thought they were. Discuss any uncertainties you might have with someone who isn't involved. They will help you see things from a different perspective. You will then feel more certain about what you must do. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It should be no trouble finding the intellectual curiosity you crave. Colleagues are eager to discuss bold ideas, and friends seek your opinion on complex moral dilemmas.

Legal matters are looking up; this would be a good time to settle a case or sign a long-term agreement. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Quietly reflect on the way your life is going; if you want to realise your ambitions you need to be organised about it.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's a good day to take firm steps to make your life more challenging and exciting. You feel your world lacks stimulation; it's tempting to blame others or a lack of money or opportunity. Ultimately it is up to you to do something about it.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You must make your mind up quickly if you are offered the chance to take a change in direction careerwise. There will hardly be time to think but this will be one opportunity you won't want to miss. You get the chance to pursue and achieve ambitions which up until now have been verging on the fringe of dreams. Most things will go your way. A quiet evening with friends is likely. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Starting an exercise program will bring dramatic results in a few short weeks. It's imperative you begin now, while your energy is high and your willpower is strong. Finding a trainer or a good gym will be easier than usual. If a piece of exercise equipment catches your eye, it's worth the investment. You've always put much emphasis on your intellectual powers. Now it's time to build your physical strength. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you are working today, colleagues may not be content busying themselves with routine affairs. If they have something less mundane in mind, go along with their ideas with enthusiasm. A lively atmosphere prevails. Take advantage of a superior's indulgent mood. Persuade them to allow you new responsibilities that give you a greater sense of freedom. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com No matter how hard you try you can't seem to keep a friend or colleague happy. Everything you do is wrong and their criticism will make you nervous. You might start questioning the situation and looking for reasons why you are going through this aggravation. Try reading between the lines and you might realise they are feeling inadequate, alone or neglected. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com [content] Words of praise from a friend or colleague come just as you were starting to wonder whether your efforts are worth it.

People are incredibly helpful and you will find more than one way to capitalise on this situation. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Daydreaming has always been one of your favourite activities. You love imagining the way life could be or should be. If your current lifestyle is miles apart from the one you want, it's time to take action. Get in shape. Change your job. Break away from an abusive relationship. Form friendships with supportive people. Put an end to addictive behaviours. In short, do what's necessary to live your dream. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You will get more from life and your relationships because of the thought you are putting into everything now. You can expect to see positive results from the plans you are making. This should be a quiet time, allowing you ample chance to contemplate new possibilities. Someone in the family is talking about joining a fitness or sports club; you might decide to join them. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A highly educated, well travelled philosopher could capture your fancy. You've always been attracted to people who think out of the box. If you've already got a mate, you may want to discuss the possibility of going abroad together. You may be surprised how readily your lover agrees. There's a good chance you'll be drawn to a city known for its art and culture. You're craving mental stimulation, not natural beauty. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It is not a good time to air your views about a matter that has already been the cause of a lot of concern. Adopt the role of spectator rather than participator today. You will learn a lot from watching people around you. If you get involved, you could miss something that is going on in the background. An older relative is making plans that will upset family harmony; you could talk them out of it once you realise what is going on. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com A whirlwind of activity in your neighbourhood could disrupt your home life. Maybe there's a noisy construction project going on in your area. Perhaps you'll be entertaining some guests from out of town. It's even possible you may have to stay elsewhere so that repairs can be conducted in your own home.

If you'd like to emerge from this abundant period with a little money in the bank, put yourself on a budget. Make sure to give yourself some cash to play with every week; there's no sense in feeling deprived. Children and lovers can be very demanding right now. Instead of buying everyone gifts, spend more quality time together. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It may be a problem of protocol preventing you from putting new ideas into action.

You will be up front and forthright about your intentions. You could be dealing with someone who isn't totally honest and will happily take advantage of you. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's possible that you are attracted to someone in your workplace. Approaching this person for a date could be risky.

Things are starting to come together in a positive way. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're tremendously imaginative and artistic, which attracts lots of romantic attention. If you're looking for love, this is a great day to register with a dating service or place an ad in the personals. You could receive a lot of promising responses.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You have important matters on your mind connected to your work and other outside interests. At home, there's a need to show patience with those who don't share or understand your serious mood.

Even so, you should try to put some time aside today, for pure enjoyment and relaxation. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It may be a challenge to get your agenda met over the next three weeks. Everybody seems to be preoccupied with their own business. Take this opportunity to hone and refine your plans, especially where a short trip is concerned.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com Previously made arrangements must be honoured even if you aren't in the mood. Progress today will be, at its best, slender and at worst, almost non-existent!

There will be a way to work through the difficulties facing you today. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Conceiving or adopting a child could be in the cards for you.

(c)2006 RussellGrant.com You feel it's time to get out of a romantic association or friendship you know is not going to work. To pretend you are happy makes you feel something of a fraud.

Your energy and vitality will more than make up for those who seem more laid back in their ways! (c)2006 RussellGrant.com It's hard to keep your mind on work when so many fun distractions are around.

If a friend or colleague appears to be taking too carefree a view to a troubled situation, rest assured, deep down they are as concerned as you. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Several learning opportunities could come your way, so it behoves you to be selective. While your loved ones are urging you to pursue a practical path, you're a little more daring. Take a course in a subject that has always captured your imagination.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com Beware of reckless expenditure, as it could undermine your security. You've always prided yourself on being more of a humanitarian than a capitalist, but this shouldn't mean you're willing to risk all the fruits of your labour for the sake of appearing to do the right thing.
