(c)2005 RussellGrant.com If your finances are linked with another's in any way, some of their ideas will be difficult to get your head around.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You may feel a pang of envy over a close relationship although you will fight this with all your might. It may be that your partner or offspring show a marked preference for the company of an outsider. You might fear this person has too much influence over them.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You'll be having all sorts of fantastic financial ideas between now and late July. It's time to put your entrepreneurial talents to work.

Choose an industry that reflects your passion. When you do what you love, the money will follow. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It is one of those days when the hastier you are, the less you are likely to achieve! Delays and hold ups that do occur probably could have been avoided on hindsight.

After a lot of effort you have now achieved a happy state of affairs where you are in control. You can more or less please yourself what to do with your time and energy. Acting on your resourceful and innovative ideas will reap handsome dividends in the future. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com As far as romance is concerned, action speaks louder than words. A smooth lover may be melting your heart with lofty promises, but is this person really following through? Resist the urge to make excuses for your admirer.

(c)2006 RussellGrant.com Don't be so quick to trust somebody who appeals to your soft side. While this person may be persuasive, she also might be a little flaky, too. You're better off relying on your own strengths today. If you're feeling restless and dissatisfied, it may be because you're not going after your dreams. Stop putting mundane chores at the top of your list of things to do. Otherwise, you'll run the risk of burn out. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com When trying to solve a difficult problem, you're confronted with a situation that's frankly baffling. The harder you try, the more your thoughts end up going round in circles. What's the point of struggling on alone? A friend or colleague could put you straight if you forget your pride and admit you need help. You may not like all the suggestions they give, but keep an open mind. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You've always been a very goal oriented person, and that's especially true today. You're starting to realise a dream that was once elusive is now within arm's reach. Going to college, taking a trip, or publishing a book are among the possibilities. Don't get overwhelmed by the vastness of your project. Just take things one step at a time. Send away for an application, contact a travel agent, or write a single paragraph. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Today, you should take the opportunity to relax and indulge yourself while you can. Whether it's an undemanding hobby or doing some lightweight work around the house, your aim should be to have an easier time of it than you have had of late. Experience will have taught you the value of enjoying the occasional lazy day. - Even if working, the job should purr along smoothly without too much effort from you. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Lessons you learned long ago could come in handy quite unexpectedly. A business or romantic partner who needs reassurance may be acting out.

Your hidden leadership skills are coming to the surface, which is a nice bonus. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You might feel tempted to cut a few corners simply because you can't be bothered to put in the effort. In the mood you're in today, you aren't considering the future implications of your decisions and actions. What will other people think about your shoddy workmanship?

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're extremely ambitious now, and will take on any extra work as a means to get ahead. Authority figures are impressed by your initiative; a raise or promotion could be awarded at this time next month. In the meantime, rely on your family to keep you on an even keel. You may be executive material at the office, but your relatives know better. A long-distance trip could be postponed at the last minute; remain patient. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com The freedom to come and go as you please takes on more importance than normal. You might feel you need time to yourself to put thought into a situation so personal you don't want to discuss it with family. Your loved one's willingness to accept your need for some independence will be a telling point today. You could reach a fresh understanding without the need to put anything into words! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Others are impressed with your achievements and you're in for a surprise. You'll be stunned by the tenacity and determination you put into your efforts today.

You are steadfast in your resolve to reach your goal and you could exceed your own expectations. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Utilising your knowledge and talents brightens the outlook. There is a special atmosphere of respect and awareness in your working relationships. Within your career, make the most of any chances that come your way to increase your earnings or your understanding of the job. Be willing to take on new challenges as today it is likely you will come up smelling of roses whatever you choose to do! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com The spotlight is shining squarely on you these next two weeks, so take advantage! Promoting your work, making a public presentation or going on a first date are among the possibilities. You'll find that people are extremely receptive to what you have to say.

(c)2005 RussellGrant.com Deeper understanding is felt in your closest relationships; it is easier now to reconcile any differences. This is a good day for meaningful conversations and for discussing all you hope will occur over the months ahead. Try not to dwell on what has gone wrong or caused misunderstandings in the past. Romance, travel and the realisation of a dream is possible if you remain positive and assertive. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Resolve to remain dignified even when your self-confidence is nowhere to be found. A problem or knock back affects you more than you would care to admit and your confidence all too easily melts into obscurity. If you are feeling nervous about a test, examination or interview, give yourself a good talking to. Don't let nerves get the better of you and relax whenever possible. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com [content] More responsibilities are pushed on to your shoulders. You would like to have had more warning. Thoughts about not being able to cope are soon forgotten as you get on with what you have to do. People are impressed with your practical skills. Both your work and your home life are chaotic but you would rather be busy than have nothing to do at all! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's time to get real about finances, especially joint bank accounts, investment portfolios, and credit card debt. You've always had a tremendous need for security. What you may not realise is that you can attain wealth all on your own. It doesn't matter what your marital status is or how much money you owe. Everything you desire is within your power. Consult a financial expert so you can meet your long-term goals. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Although this is a sociable time of year, you might put aside a few hours today, to be on your own. If people realise you are in a reclusive mood, they won't push you to join in with activities you aren't keen on. Over the past few days you have gone out of your way to make people happy. Your kindness is repaid when they can't do enough for you today! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're more determined than ever to spend time on the people and activities you love. Whether this means switching jobs or cutting back on work is up to you. It does look as though you'll be spending more time at home. Perhaps you've bought a new place that needs to be decorated. If that's the case, feel free to spend a little more money than usual. Make your abode a feast for the senses. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Community affairs and creative efforts take priority; you aim to get a lot accomplished. There is so much you have to do and you are relying on other people for their support. A joint effort may not go as well as expected. People aren't working together as a team. Everyone has their own ideas, an argument is brewing and if you fall out with someone today, the rift may never be healed! (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Forging a new career path takes time, preparation and patience. Fortunately, you're willing to do whatever is necessary to get ahead. Friends may encourage you to stick to a familiar arrangement, fearing what will happen if you take a risk.

Reciting positive affirmations in the mirror could help. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com In business, finance and social affairs, you will be honest, determined and thorough in all you do. It is all or nothing for you, today; you aren't in the mood to do anything by half measures. A job promotion is in the offing. This offer could be accompanied by more money. You are channelling your energy in all the right places. The confident image you project today impresses people in high places. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Expanding your horizons can be an uncomfortable experience, but it's ultimately rewarding. You're starting to see rewards for a huge investment of time, effort, and money. Colleagues may be threatened by your new direction. They can see that you're heading for bigger and better things, while they're stuck in one place. Try showing a little compassion. A secret love affair isn't worth the trouble and pain. Either end it or bring it into the open. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Financial discrepancies and the need for someone to be at home more will be the source of a heated argument. There may be disagreement with a partner over what should be a shared responsibility. One or both of you needs to agree to take on some temporary obligations in order to soothe the domestic situation. If children are involved, be careful what they hear. They shouldn't feel they're the cause of any problems. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A Freudian slip reveals hidden fears about your personal limitations. Somehow, you feel as though you don't measure up to the competition. Maybe it's because you've been neglecting your health. Perhaps it's because you occupy a lower position than everybody else. Whatever the reason for your insecurities, you've got to overcome them. Start spending more time on activities at which you excel. This will bolster your confidence. You're a lot more talented than you realise. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A burst of mental energy will send you whizzing through your normal routines. Others are taken aback by your positive attitude. They will be further amazed at the way you cope with minor problems with almost careless ease. Nothing seems to faze you. What has got into you, they may well wonder? You're simply determined to make the best of all situations. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Put your health and safety first, even if it means distancing yourself from a troubled relationship. You have a lot more emotional resources than you give yourself credit for. If you're struggling with debt, consult a professional. Together, you can set up payment plans. The sooner you get your finances into shape, the easier it will be to form supportive relationships. Concentrate on being your own best friend first, then expand your social network. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A small family celebration or similar get-together will be more of a success than you had anticipated. You may have to turn a blind eye to a younger relative's slightly off the wall performance. If this is someone you don't see regularly, you can laugh at their zany behaviour and be glad you don't have to live with them! Single? Romance will be a happy plus, this evening. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Authority figures are sending mixed signals, but it's not up to you to decipher them. Devoting time to intimate relationships will be far more rewarding. You may notice that your sex drive has become decidedly stronger. If you've got your sights set on a new amour, make your move now. Normally, you prefer to be the prey, rather than the hunter. That's all about to change between now and mid-April. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You could be meeting some officials or important people and not looking forward to the prospect. What inspires you is the chance this should clear some unwanted business out of the way. It could be the person you see will be a mere representative or spokesperson and nothing will be settled. By this evening you might feel you've wasted your time when you're no further forward than you were at the start of the day. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com When it comes to trying new things, you try to get a lot of advance preparation. That may not be possible today, however. Don't hesitate to accept someone's generous offer, even if it means plunging into an area that is totally unfamiliar. You may find you actually have more success when you don't bother to think things through. In fact, you may put a creative new spin on an old art form. Enjoy. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's not a day for expecting too much from those around you or for dreaming dreams too far out of reach. Daydreaming only serves to distort reality. Weaving fantasies around ideas still in the imagination stage should be avoided. Stay practical and alert. You could get support from someone you least expected and this will eventually lead you to achieving a special goal. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Beware of putting too much pressure on a romantic partner today. If you're single, it could be because you are seeking an impossible ideal. Stop looking for Prince or Princess Charming and start reviewing people on their individual merits. A pleasant conversation with a stranger could lead to a fun date. Don't be afraid to make the first move. Resist the temptation to take on more work as a means to impress your boss. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It would be a mistake to trust other people to do things for you; you can't count on them to keep their promises. Colleagues and other associates may seem helpful on the surface but ask yourself why they are taking so much interest in your affairs. Their assistance might swing from out and out bossiness to subtle persuasion. Keep to the shadows as you will gain most through doing your own thing. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You've got to show a pushy partner that you can be just as assertive. Start taking ownership of your financial future, even if it means having separate bank accounts. Keep a joint account open for shared expenses. You've always been a master at money management, putting a strong emphasis on savings. Your beloved may not share your financial priorities. That's fine, provided he or she accept the consequences for their own decisions. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com In all relationships keep the lines of communication open. An honest approach now could save you from future problems. Clear thinking helps you envisage how ideas might pan out and this gives you the confidence to instigate new long term ventures. Talking changes over in a straightforward and up front way means everyone knows what to expect and no-one can grumble about having been left in the dark. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You've got great instincts where your love life is concerned. Maybe you sense that somebody's got a crush on you. If that's the case, it may be up to you to make the first move. Fortunately, the object of your affection will be very receptive, as your animal magnetism has never been stronger. In the event you already have a mate, you should lure him or her away to a secret hideaway. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Agreements reached today could save you a lot of misunderstanding and confusion in the future. If you are moving in with a new partner or vice versa, agree on some ground rules from the start. You might be thinking about taking in a lodger or hiring someone to do work around your house. Whatever form joint transactions take let others know what you expect out of them and you won't be disappointed. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Taking a different approach to religion, philosophy and education can spark an exciting trend. In the past, you've been completely devoted to traditional methods. Now you're starting to see the benefits of integrating technology and old ideas. Young people will be especially receptive to your innovations. Publishing a book could be in the cards for you. Don't worry about getting backing. Just get started and the funding will come. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Small, fairly unimportant diversions could upset the smooth running of your day to day affairs; does this really matter? If you find yourself getting annoyed with things that shouldn't aggravate you, consider why you are feeling so wound up. Perhaps you still hold a grudge over a recent career disappointment. Forget past frustrations and prepare to move ahead now in a more confident and relaxed frame of mind. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Step away from current worries and anxieties as you are too close to the matter in hand to be able to see the whole picture. It is not a good day to allow yourself to be guided wholly by instinct. You need to carefully weigh up the pros and cons of all commitments or promises you are making. Try to keep obligations to a minimum and remember, nothing is black and white. Consider the advantages of the grey areas. Don't be too rigid in your thinking. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com An unexpected job offer is possible or there may be a sudden need to revise your career situation. There isn't the time to deliberate over your decisions. Although you would like to choose a couple of options, only one verdict can be likely. Partnerships bring joy and joint money affairs look encouraging when discussions lead to a mutually profitable understanding. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you're struggling with work, it's important to remember money isn't everything. A job that makes you feel tense, demoralised and sick with worry is not worth keeping. It may be better to quit without having another position waiting, just for the sake of your health. Running your own business will allow you to make money by doing something you love. If that's not an option, think about getting some vocational training. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You have been working hard to prove something to someone; has it all been worth it? Today you will find out. Whether or not you've succeeded in your intentions at least you know where you stand and what other people think of you. It might pay to move around your work area today and mix with as many people as possible. You will want to be kept in the picture about possible future developments. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Creative energies stir within making this a good day if you are involved in craftwork or the arts. If you have links with the theatre you may be nearing the end of rehearsals for a production. The feeling you are getting it together spurs you on to greater efforts. Be realistic about your capabilities. As long as you aren't tempted beyond your level of competency, steady progress will be made. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You can't think stress unless your household is in order. Organising a massive clean-up will keep depression at bay. Enlist the aid of family members and roommates; there's no reason you should tackle this job on your own. Make separate piles of things you want to donate and items you'd like to discard. Hanging on to clutter can prevent you from moving forward in life. Kiss the past goodbye; a bright future awaits! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A talent you have only used for personal pleasure could find a practical and profitable outlet at work. Up until now you may not have given yourself a lot of credit for a skill in which you are proficient. A colleague or someone in your social circle could suggest a money making application for your talents. This could turn into a good little earner in the weeks leading up to Christmas. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Recently, you've been much more open to change than you have been in years past. Right now, you're itching to explore greener pastures. Living abroad or going back into education are distinct possibilities. It's even possible you'll exchange your current lifestyle for a more spiritual path. Friends and family will think you've gone crazy, but that's really not your problem. The important thing is to follow your instincts. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A social event which you had been dreading, surpasses your expectations. You might take up a new interest which will involve working with others on a mental and creative level. If single, lonely and looking for love, developments on the social scene bring new romantic situations. An emotional attachment will be formed with a quiet, compassionate person. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You'd love to overhaul your routine, but aren't sure where to begin. Reading a few health related books can give you inspiration. You may want to bypass academic volumes for a primer of some sort. That way, you won't get overwhelmed by a lot of dry statistics. If you'd like to make some more money, volunteer for some extra assignments. Your willingness to do more will help an authority figure. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It is highly unlikely but if you find yourself twiddling your thumbs, look around and you will see there is plenty to do. Why don't you offer your help or services to a local charity or hospice? You won't have any complaints about being roped into a fund raising event. Working with children and young people will bring countless rewards. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You're feeling sexy and sultry, and not at all like the respectable person others believe you to be. It's time to play up your animal magnetism. Start dressing in a sexier manner. Consult a hairstylist about changing your look. Cultivate your flirting skills. Getting in touch with your earthy side will set your sex life on fire. Pretty soon, you'll be attracting admirers wherever you go, and enjoying passionate nights with the one you love. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you are working, the job flows smoothly without the snags you may have been anticipating. You feel more confident about your talents and abilities and you are more likely to make decisions without asking for approval. A short trip this afternoon should make for a pleasant change of scene, even if it wasn't planned. Good news about a male friend puts a smile on your face. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It's time to come clean with regard to joint finances. If you've been drowning in credit card debt, consult a financial expert. Such a person can help reduce the interest rates and put you on a sensible payment schedule. If you've been hiding certain expenses from your partner, talk it over in a calm, rational way. It's better for you to reveal the truth than to be exposed by a collection agency. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A joint effort will produce good results over the weeks ahead. Be willing to share and share alike in all parts of the procedure. Even when your views differ from your partner, consider what they have to say. It is highly likely their observations and suggestions are sensible and credible. The lesson you get out of cooperative efforts is that you can trust some people to keep their word. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com A health concern demands your immediate attention; don't let this problem continue another day. It's possible nagging fears have been manifesting themselves as sickness. If that's the case, you must find a way to cope with these problems. Meditation, therapy, or yoga can be enormously helpful. Open your mind and heart to holistic approaches. They can help you treat the source of the problem, instead of masking the symptoms. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A close relationship is strengthened as you share ideas with successful results. You could be faced with extra duties as a result of a joint agreement; you will happily take these on board. If you are working, the opposite is the case. Shared responsibilities are taking it out of you when a partner fails to put in their fair share of the work. How long are you going to let them get away with this? (c)2006 RussellGrant.com A fixation with career or outside concerns is stopping you from giving loved ones the attention they deserve. Before others have to spell this out to you, acknowledge and admit that you have not been as tender or as loving as you should have been. A big point in your favour would be to confess this and ask others for forgiveness. If you don't, someone is ready to start accusing you of neglect! (c)2005 RussellGrant.com If you let your innate love of mothering people get out of hand you could be inundated with other people's problems. A new job could entail caring for other people. One big advantage is the pleasure and satisfaction being able to help others will bring. The drawback is: you risk becoming besieged by responsibilities that will eventually weigh you down. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Sexual jealousy could rear its ugly head, so be prepared for an argument. Whether your partner accuses you of being untrue or you are upset by your beloved's behaviour is immaterial. The important thing is that you have to find the source of these insecure feelings. An opportunity to get some distance from each other could arrive unexpectedly. A long holiday may be just what you need to cool off. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com You could agree to make some changes in a close relationship or partnership. Once you've made a decision you might still wonder whether or not it has been the right one. Only time will tell. If finances are involved and if you have taken professional advice, you have done the sensible thing. All you can do now is wait and see whether or not things turn out as you are hoping for! (c)2006 RussellGrant.com A loved-one wants to live life to the full; you're worried about their spending. Others won't be in the mood to discuss the financial changes you would like to see put into action. You know that planning today is the only way to stave-off future problems. An ideal way to deal with the situation is to open a personal bank account and organise your finances so they are completely independent of others. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com It will soon be time to take plans of a financial nature out of cold storage. Although you may be tempted to let other people make the decisions, your own ideas and contributions will help enhance partnership finances. You might think about new investment schemes and use your savings to better advantage. Combining assets with a partner will help consolidate your future. (c)2006 RussellGrant.com Assuming leadership of a large organisation is exactly the kind of challenge you love. You've been blessed with considerable executive ability, but you'd rather deal with people than facts and figures. Serving as a general counsellor brings out the best in you. Members of your team could come to you with dark secrets or surprising revelations. By respecting their trust, they'll reward you with stellar performances. It's a win-win situation. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com A colleague or neighbour has a crush on you; the time you spend together will be pleasant and enjoyable. Conversation flows easily and time races by as you enjoy shared activities and good company. The only fly in the ointment is if you're attached and your partner starts getting suspicious. Even if you've got nothing to hide, you feel guilty simply because you enjoyed encouraging someone's flirtatious advances. Why? (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Forcing your opinions on others isn't helping your case. If you really want to win somebody over, present the facts and then make a strategic retreat. Eventually, this person will come around to your point of view. In the meantime, don't get involved with power struggles at work. Defer to a colleague who is insecure. If this person feels important, they'll do their fair share. If not, they'll dump their duties onto you. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com There are lessons to be learned from today's experiences. Someone wants you to join forces in what they feel will be a smart financial or business move. You know they're making a huge mistake. If you value this relationship, you need to be tactful about your response. Let others know that wishful thinking should never be allowed to get in the way of sound planning. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com There's no sense in beating around the bush with a love interest any longer. Express your feelings, even at the risk of being rejected. You may be astonished at your beloved's passionate response. If you're already in a relationship, you need to put a little more emphasis on lovemaking. Take more time on your appearance, and add a few sexy items to your wardrobe. Keep an open mind towards seemingly shocking suggestions. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Whichever way you turn you seem to be faced with obstacles and obstructions. These will range from ignored messages, unanswered or engaged phone calls and non-payment of debts. Last-minute changes to travel arrangements may mean forgoing a journey you had been looking forward to. Since a number of affairs are out of your hands, accept what has happened.

Confess your fears to a lover or trusted friend. (c)2005 RussellGrant.com Life has assumed a serious tone these past two years, which has made you much stronger.
