To all my dear cosmic friends – yes that’s you!

Thank you for being so wonderful in recent years as I know many of you voted for Flavia Cacace and I in Strictly Come Dancing. This led to such an exciting time in my life as my Saturn rewards have flooded in – you see Saturn isn’t all bad. My dearest love is theatre and to return to it and in such style at the London Palladium at the invitation of Sir Andrew Lloyd-Webber to star in The Wizard of Oz has been the pinnacle of my theatrical career so far – it put a smile on my 5th House Sun and Venus for sure. This Christmas I am again performing a first! Wait for this, I am playing the Astrologer Royal, Phidias in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves at the Lighthouse Theatre, Kettering, Northamptonshire. I started my career acting in television and theatre, and then as an astrologer I was lucky to have patronage from members of our royal family – and now I’ve been asked to play myself! That could be tricky! Close to Peterborough, Northampton and Leicester and just 50 mins on the express from St Pancras I would like to invite you to come to see the Kettering panto. Christmas isn’t Christmas without a good ‘He’s Behind You’ and it would be so lovely meet you and your family at the stage door after the show, oh and don’t forget your camera.

Here’s the website and hope to see you at the Lighthouse Theatre – http://lighthousetheatre.co.uk/event/snow-white-and-the-seven-dwarfs/ whether or not have a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year. Rusty x

Autumn Equinox

The Sun will enter Libra at the time of the Autumn Equinox marking the first day of autumn. Libra is the sign of balance and when the balance in our lives is out of kilter it can make us feel physically exhausted and emotionally drained. The Autumn Equinox is a perfect time for us all to take a look at our lives to find our equilibrium.

Arians for instance should strive to make their partnerships more equal. The benefits will include better communication, increased understanding and greater physical intimacy. Taureans might think about approaching change with a more flexible attitude instead of clinging too tightly to the past. It’s important for Geminis to get a balance between work and pleasure whereas Cancerians should take steps toward balancing their work and family responsibilities. Leos might improve their time-management skills to buy themselves more time for friends and neighbours and to balance other people’s needs with their own. Virgos will achieve true life balance as they learn how to make decisions based on intuition as well as intellect. Librans must always live according to what they recognise as being right and wrong. Scorpios might strive to be more open and less secretive. For Sagittarians it is good to strike a balance between self-reliance and cooperation. Capricorns shouldn’t think they have to do everything themselves. There is nothing wrong with accepting help when it is needed. One of the hardest things for Aquarius is to find a balance between being alone and being with others. Pisceans need to work at getting the balance right between dreaming and reality.

Look on the Autumn Equinox as a time to start again in areas that aren’t working and to repaint the dark colours on the canvas that is your life with autumn yellows and golds.

Russell Grant reveals the Birth Horoscope of a son for their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

 

 

Russell Grant reveals the Birth Horoscope of a son for their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

 

To celebrate the birth of Their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the ‘Astrologer Royal’ Russell Grant reveals the new prince’s Natal Horoscope. This type of Horoscope takes a snapshot of the planetary positions at the exact time of birth – 16.24 BST on July 22nd 2013 in Paddington. This comprehensive analysis highlights the inner personality with the main characteristics of how others see you which ensures a voyage of self discovery.

The royal prince’s Sun is at the very end of the sign of Cancer, his father’s sign, opposing the Moon in Capricorn, his mother Kate’s sun-sign. This reveals a strong bond to both parents although a special relationship is reserved for William as they will make each other laugh and enjoy one another’s company.

The Cancerian conjunction between royal planet Jupiter (exalted in Cancer) and athletic Mars forming a fortuitous grand trine along with Saturn and Neptune in water signs. I suspect a strong spiritual even psychic link to his grandmother, Diana, also a Cancerian. He will want to connect with her memory and will carry on her legacy with enormous pride in a woman he never knew on the earth plane.

A dynamic T-Square in Cardinal signs when Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn both squared by Uranus in Aries the baby’s mental powers are forensic and he will analyse everything. A spark of ingenuity separates him from the average thinker. He has an imaginative, sensitive and reflective nature and with Saturn and Ascendant in Scorpio, the self discipline to make the best use of his potential as an individual with an unbending sense of duty.

His life will go through dramatic transformations that he has no control over and he will feel empowered to bring negative chapters of his life to a close and move-on. Building up to a Full Moon he will seek closure whenever possible if something isn’t working out.

From an early age the new royal will take himself and his abilities seriously. He will be extremely affable, charming and gracious but with a stubbornness that will sometimes take people by surprise. This prince is no pushover and has an innate need to respect his elders.

Cancerian Prince William and Capricorn Kate will be more protective than your average parents but that’s because they know the pressures that come from being in the media and public spotlight. Their firm but gentle guidance will encourage their son to be self reliant and responsible for his decisions. Both will intend to spend plenty of time with their son. It won’t, therefore, escape his parents notice that this little royal needs a steady diet of love, affection and emotional nourishment.

As an individual he will have a friendly and cordial spirit while being slightly aloof and dignified at the same time. He may rarely ask for it but he will need plenty of reassurance. Artistic and creative activities will be a positive channel for his deep well of emotions.

This child has a strong sense of karma and his princely purpose is staring him in the face, Jupiter’s positive links to Saturn and Neptune add strength to the fact that he was born to reign and Mars close to Jupiter signifies royalty and leadership. Truthful, ethical and principled he will look on work and responsibility as being as natural as play and rest. He may have been born to a family with strict rules for generations but this child belongs to a new era when some traditions will be continued but others rendered obsolete. He has the ability to eradicate, eliminate and recreate when needed.

This complex royal will have a quiet and controlled nature unless excited or tense when he will show a more headstrong, dramatic side. He will find relaxation through art, sport and music where his inspirational energies can be harnessed to good effect. Although courageous and a born leader, this child who will be third in line to the throne will also enjoy his own company valuing solitude and privacy.

With his Ascendant and Saturn in Scorpio (Prince Charles’ Sun Sign), the stellium in Cancer (shared by Willliam, Diana AND Camilla) there is a spell-binding quality about this child, with a steel-like willpower that never gives up: he will hang on in there when others have fallen by the wayside.

Star Psychic

Star PsychicPsychic Friend - Star Psychic

What is a Star Psychic? Many of us seek the perfect Psychic to help us resolve problems, to ease our insecurities, to understand us, to know us better than we know ourselves. A Star Psychic is a friend in our hour of need, a light in the darkness; help when we need to unravel life’s knots. She will explain why the love of our life left us, why bad luck pursues us, whether we will get that job or whether we will ever have enough money to buy our dream house. Yet nowadays we have a choice of so many readers. On line psychics, text readings, phone readings, psychic fair readers, it is hard to identify who our special Star Psychic is and if we can trust her. Many Psychics vouch for gifts that support truth and healing but it is up to us to identify what “type” of Psychic we prefer.

Some of us might go for the gypsy type at the fair, the woman with mesmerizing dark eyes that pierce the veils of soul. We might prefer a mother figure that comforts us on the phone or a girl friend type of Psychic we can send text messages to. We might be more inclined to seek out a male Psychic to gives us a guy’s point of view. We might prefer our Star Psychic to have healing gifts, be able to see auras or utilize mediumship skills or connect to those who have passed on. In short, as far as a Star Psychic is concerned it is “different strokes for different folks” But there are some baseline characteristics that differentiate a Star Psychic from a less gifted intuitive. A Star Psychic will not interrupt your flow by chipping in with her own problems. She will take a therapeutic approach, and might have attended counselling course or healing workshops to perfect her craft. She could be an Astrologer, a Numerologist or a Tarot Reader, perhaps all three rolled into one. She will make it clear whether she is specialized in affairs of the heart, tracing lost loved ones or long-term predictions before she starts your reading. A Star Psychic will also explain whether she works with visions, healing systems or if she can clarify exact time lines. She will tell you if she is unable to pinpoint a phone call from your boyfriend to exactly August 10 at 3.00 pm, but if a Star Psychic sees him calling, he usually will, as she has above average predictive skills. She can proffer spiritual guidance and will put you on a prayer list or send you long distance healing if you ask for additional support. A Star Psychic is on earth to help others and will do whatever possible to stand by her client.

Psychic Prediction Boundaries

A Star Psychic will never predict death, or medical problems, as that is against her ethics. A Star Psychic knows that medical issues can only be dealt with by a qualified medical practitioner to protect her client’s interests. She will not predict for children, nor will she moralize, preach or boast of her powers. She will make sure she remains humble; your happiness is more important to her than fame. But she will spell out strong advice if you ask for it, if she sees a lover is not right for you, she will tell you. A Star Psychic will not overcharge, but she will expect fair remuneration, after all she is giving her time with dedication and expertise. Above all a Star Psychic is broad minded and prone to follow the path of spiritual evolution. She is prepared to amplify her knowledge in that process. She realizes life is a great adventure and that the only true authority is Divine Spirit or the light that illumines all creation. Sometimes her own life has been filled with suffering, so she can understand others’ pain with compassion and be patient with those who do not know which way to turn. A Star Psychic’s mission is to help; yet she is not soppy, nor will she be afraid to tell you what she sees. She trusts the God Force and Eternal Light more than the illusions of this world. She listens to earth bound critics and sceptics, but she cannot hold back her life mission just to be approved of. That mission is to stand by you, to support and guide you through the challenges. She deems it her duty is to give you all the comfort, knowledge and wisdom you deserve. She is your girlfriend and magical companion rolled into one and after you have experienced a reading with a Star Psychic you will feel positive, inspired, happy and hopeful. A Star Psychic nurtures a higher vision for humanity’s evolution, but perhaps the true measure of a Star Psychic is her kindness and connection to Spirit. If you sense that love, that Spirit working through her, you will know you have finally found what you are looking for, the Ultimate Star Psychic!

Clairvoyance

ClairvoyanceHelen Schucman and William Thetford - Clairvoyance

Did the meeting of Helen Schucman and William Thetford, both professors of Medical Psychology at Columbia University, have something to do with clairvoyance? After all these two people were very down to earth intellectual achievers concerned with “doing” and “being” in the world. Any hint of clairvoyance would have been classified as a “no no” on their part, as far away from their belief systems as chalk from cheese.

Helen describes herself as, “Psychologist, educator, conservative in theory and atheistic in belief, I was working in a prestigious and highly academic setting. And then something happened that triggered a chain of events I could never have predicted. The head of my department unexpectedly announced that he was tired of the angry and aggressive feelings our attitudes reflected, and concluded that, ‘there must be another way.’ As if on cue I agreed to help him find it. Apparently this Course is the other way.”

Both Helen and William were certain they could change attitudes and make things work between them and their colleagues, but they did not know how, or even understand what was driving them on, until the famed Course in Miracles channelled itself to Helen! Something metaphysically energetic, a sort of “clairvoyance” was the beginning of Helen’s profound metaphysical transformation. She stated, “Bill suggested that I write down the highly symbolic dreams and descriptions of the strange images that were coming to me. Although I had grown more accustomed to the unexpected by that time, I was still very surprised when I wrote, “This is a Course in Miracles!” That was my introduction to “the Voice”. It made no sound, but seemed to be giving me a kind of rapid, inner dictation which I took down in a shorthand notebook.”

Miracles

The Course in Miracles has a spiritual intensity that has many thinking clairvoyance must be one of Helen’s natural gifts. Clairvoyance is a transfer of metaphysical information related to what scientists call “remote viewing”. Some see clairvoyance as delusional. “The Course in Miracles” says Helen, “makes a fundamental distinction between the real and the unreal; between knowledge and perception. Knowledge is truth, under one law, the law of love or God. Truth is unalterable, eternal and unambiguous. It can be unrecognized, but it cannot be changed. It applies to everything that God created, and only what He created is real. It is beyond learning because it is beyond time and process. It has no opposite; no beginning and no end. It merely is. The project became a collaborative venture between Bill and myself, and much of its significance, I am sure, lies in that. I would take down what the Voice “said” and read it to him the next day, and he typed it from my dictation.

Helen claims she had an “internal teacher” yet we imagine she would giggle at the concept of clairvoyance, even though she was being guiding to writing enlightened prose. The Course could be described as “Clairvoyance with a twist”, a totally remarkable endeavour that changed not only Helen and William’s lives but the lives of millions. A Course in Miracle is a metaphysical work of art, a substantial teaching tool, and consciousness “primer”; it can totally alter our perceptions, and help heal the wounds of life. The Course is a spiritual treatise “par excellence!” Don’t miss out on it!

Accurate Psychic Readings

Accurate Psychic ReadingsAccurate Psychic Readings

Some say accurate psychic readings are equivalent to looking for a needle in a haystack. Many have never experienced accurate psychic readings. Some claim that nothing happened like the psychic said it would. Well, yes accurate psychic readings can be disappointing if you perceive life from a purely logical perspective and expect time-zone- style predictions, or that the reading fits in with a specific need.

The Connection

You see accurate psychic readings happen when both you and a psychic go beyond the status quo and believe in the existence of a supernatural force. They will be aware of your sensitivity and their connection to you will be both genuine and “mystical” as a result of your own belief system. In fact their yearning to express the “spiritual powers that be” is a lifelong dedication, ultimately making them a perfect channel for metaphysical energy. Their inborn gift is often enhanced by years of study, self sacrifice and enquiry. Often a “way” is chosen, some psychics go for” Wicca” others follow eastern mystical practices. A percentage become avid disciples of Buddhism and Christianity, and some claim to follow the Kabbalah. All these “ways” are roads to spiritual wisdom and the unconditional love that enables an empath to tap into aspects of your life and prove accurate psychic readings are more than possible.

Kabbalah

Regarding the Kabbalah, or the mystical heart of Judaism, you will probably know Madonna is a follower and recently Britney Spears has taken up the same quest. Both stars realize access to their numinous core is vital to happiness. Certainly they probably would not discard the fact that accurate psychic readings could form part of the miraculous side of life. In fact, if you know that there is a great spiritual force at the core of all things your vision will expand and you will understand an empath’s approach, especially when you turn to them for accurate psychic readings. You will also realize that visions from Spirit are not “in the box” and that a psychic will report only on what is shown to them.

A psychic following Kabbalistic tradition will be highly dedicated to your well being, for the Kabbala is a magical road when it comes to discovering self worth and personal goodness. It traces back to the 10th century BC and much of its power remained secret within the ranks of the Sanhedrin, who wanted to make sure this fabulous mystical knowledge would not fall into the wrong hands. Kabbala secrets are based on “The foundation of all foundations, and the pillar of all wisdom that is to know there is God who brought all into being existence” Kabbalistic tradition requires years of intense study to understand the Ten Sephirot or the radiations of God which comprise Keter (will) Chochmah (wisdom) Binah (understanding) Chesded (mercy or loving kindness) Gevurah (justice) Pachad (fear, severity or strength) Tiferet (harmony or beauty), Netzac (Victory), Hod (Glory or Splendour) Yesod (Power of Foundation) and Malkuth (Kingdom of God).

A Kabbalistic-style empath will be aware that the human soul is a profound map of instincts, moral virtues, good and evil, and the Super Soul which opens us all to the presence of God. The Kabbalists believe in Angels and the Book of Zohar, where it is written “Angels of the Creator shall bless Him”. The Zohar states Angels manifest God’s will. They will also believe in the Tree of Life which could be considered the core to mystical esotericism. In fact, one could say the Kabbalah goes beyond religion and deep into the universal cause and effect of life itself, that it expresses the mystic element of our life paths if you like.

Okay, so this might all seem rather high brow, but the basis is if you are looking for accurate psychic readings, know that they are possible through an empath’s sincere dedication to her spiritual path, whatever that may be, in fact the relationship you create with your favourite reader could lead you to wondrous perception of your reality, a reality you never thought possible!

Accurate Psychic Predictions

Accurate Psychic Predictions

Accurate Psychic Predictions

You saw a nutty man walking around with a sandwich board strapped to his chest only the other day. The board read “The end of the world is nigh”. Is he right? Is he seeing something we can’t? Or is he just playing into our fears? Was his sandwich board to do with accurate psychic predictions or simply the odd musings of the mentally disturbed?

We have all heard people say they have had at least one experience of accurate psychic predictions. For example Anne went to a psychic fair, and a gypsy told her she would marry in a year, and she did not even have a boyfriend! The very next day she met a wonderful guy at the local super market and they married within eight months!

James was told by an online psychic that someone would take him to court for a lot of money and sure enough an ex employee who had fallen in love with him and he had rejected, sued him for 200,000, saying he had “mobbed” her, needless to say she lost the case when it was found she had forged two signatures!

Nostradamus

Of course the Mother of all accurate psychic predictions is contained in the writings of Nostradamus; his spot-on visions included seeing “Hitler”, the Second World War and the invasion of France. Many of his visions are still scary but we can find comfort in the fact that not all of them have come to pass; in fact many are still floating around in the ethers somewhere.

Some clairvoyants have made accurate psychic predictions regarding an increase in mental breakdowns and bizarre behaviour all over the planet. We have seen people going berserk with machine guns on university campuses, Britney Spears shaving her head and nutty behaviour on European editions of Big Brother, so they are not that wrong! Of course those who predicted Sarah Palin would write a book, only have to wait for its publication.

Famous Predictions

Other predictions include George Clooney marrying in Como, Italy, so his current affair with pin up girl Elisabetta Cannalis could indeed morph into wedding bells after all! Also recently, accurate psychic predictions wisely tell us that Hugh Hefner will have to watch his health – so the fine old gentleman might have to stop swinging his nights away with busty blondes!

Accurate psychic predictions for 2009 saw an earthquake in Italy and one indeed did come to pass in Aquila. Predictions of danger lurking around Barack Obama have also come to pass. Obama was earmarked for assassination by some extreme white supremacy group which obviously failed when it was discovered.

Other predictions that we wish would never come true are the continuation of economic challenges worldwide, additional terrorist attacks and continual freaky weather. But notwithstanding these woes, an economic boom similar to those often experienced after world wars has been predicted for us also.

John Titor – Time Traveller

Perhaps the most bizarre predictions of the future were made by John Titor, who claimed he was a time traveller, with full on supporting back up information to boot. His appearance on the internet a couple of years back, created quite a storm. He reported on various events in our future history and then completely disappeared.

He said, ‘A world war in 2015 kills nearly three billion people. Life is much more rural in the future but “high” technology is used to communicate and travel. People raise a great deal of their own food and do more farm-work. Here is a post office. The Internet is still alive and well in the future. People spend more time talking because life is cantered on the community. In 2015, Russia launches a nuclear strike against the major cities in the United States”

Can we believe this? What we can believe above and beyond accurate predictions, is that change is inevitable and none of us on this planet forever? So let’s build a better world, and change our future for our beautiful children!

Accurate Psychic

Accurate Psychic

Accurate Psychic

An accurate psychic is not conditioned by a strictly material vision of life. Their capacity to read destiny, emotions and our life problems so precisely is due to their gift of going beyond 3-D reality. In fact, an accurate psychic is in accord with the findings of philosophers and therapists like Carl Gustav Jung who inferred that the authenticity of existence does not only reside within, but beyond our material world.

Sensing and Vision

We have all learnt to experience life through our five senses which are those of “Seeing” “Hearing” “Smelling” “Tasting” and “Feeling”. We depend on these senses to interpret what is going on around us, but accurate psychics know something mysterious throbs below the surface of the world as we see it and they are aware another kind of experience of reality exists with their famous “second sight”.

What the normal person sees is extensive information communicating around them. To interpret what we are looking at, photons travel from the object we are concentrating on to the eye, where the vision we see is then retracted on to the retina at the back of the eye. Electrical signals and neurons are then projected to the back of the brain where a central point of vision interpretation translates those tiny photons and electrical impulses into an image. It is amazing to think that all the events of our life are experienced in a tiny point in our inner brain, but that is the truth.

When we say we “see something” therefore, what we are actually seeing are electrical signals reflecting into one central point within our head. Additionally, our brain is sealed off to all light, and its reality is absolute darkness. The brain itself cannot contact light, the process of seeing light must first bring in the awareness of light to the brain, and again this is due to those minute photons and electrical impulses communicating through and within us.

Horoscope Compatibility

horoscope compatibilityHoroscope Compatibility

Okay everyone, we are sure you will be “in the know” about some aspects of astrology, and already realise Aries and Leo hit it off. May be because they understand their reciprocal fire sign tendency to self aggrandizement. Their mutual tolerance will see to it that they come to terms with those OTT natures, and refrain from hitting each other over the head with frying pans as a result. In short, such fun, fire signs will not have any difficulty sussing out the meaning of horoscope compatibility.

For the less aware, horoscope compatibility means being wise about one’s astro dates. Horoscope compatibility also means that if you are a Gemini it is best not to morph into your usual schizoid self when an Aquarian boyfriend shows up late for a date. Even if his hair has been meshed and interlocking, plaited puce and green, keep very, very quiet. Your Aquarian hunk will simply call you an “old stick in a mud” if you comment that he looks daft. Instead, learn to accept your water bearer’s revolutionary approach to hair dos, and quit morphing into that Gemini Cat Woman, every time he does something you don’t like.

If you are in love with a soft eyed Virgo male however, for goodness sake don’t drool all over your beer in the pub, or start shrieking “let’s get it on!” in public. Virgo’s loathe OTT exhibitionism, and will be hiding behind the shades sooner than you can shriek “I have a skeleton in my cupboard”. If you do have one, shut up about it, Virgos hate their boy or girl friends to look bad.

Celebrity Horoscope Compatibility

If you are in love with a Capricorn, and are seeking some sort of horoscope compatibility to prove the wonder of your relationship, make sure you are not a Leo, as your connection will definitely morph into a clash of the titans “alla Eminem and Mariah Carey”. Actually, Eminem is not a Leo at all; he is an out of balance Libra and just hates it when Mariah exaggerates with those OTT Arien demands of hers. In fact, buying Mariah mink ear muffs and bowing when she enters a room was just not Eminem’s style. They would have saved themselves a great deal of agro if they had trotted off to an astrologer and had their horoscope compatibility charts drawn up before embarking on their relationship. The astrologer could have predicted that Eminem would have threatened Mariah with a “nude picture” revelation at some stage. Eminem is attached to his Libran “scales of justice” and stroppy Mariah needed a justifiable comeuppance in his book. Eminem likes his women submissive. In any event, Eminem’s consistently flirty personality would have had Mariah reaching for something to throw, like a sledge hammer, on more than one occasion. Horoscope compatibility would have been as out of reach to these two as chalk is from cheese.

Don’t even mention horoscope compatibility when it comes to Joss Stone’s feud with Lily Allen either. Joss is like Mariah in that she is an Aries, and prone to putting her foot in it. Lily is a Taurus and cool. Joss insists that Lily quote “can’t sing!” unquote, well; if Joss is looking for a fast reaction it will be slow in coming. Lily acts oblivious to button pushing. She prefers to pound the earth with her hooves, snort and horn lock. But if Joss were to go very, very far, then our beautiful songstress should consider buying a suit of medieval armour. If hard pressed, Lily’s explosive Taurean temper could blow our Joss to Kingdom Come! Again, neither of them would have even considered getting a reading to sort out their issues, and their actual horoscope compatibility.

By the way, you Leo ladies out there are advised to get a horoscope compatibility chart going once you start dating a sultry, sexy, tall, dark and handsome Scorpio. Your first impact will be dynamite, your Scorpio lover will have you reaching for, and touching the stars. But all that intensity and passion could drive you to the nut house, especially when he starts karate chopping the guy you smiled at as you grabbed a cheese stick at the office party. Scorpio jealousy does absolutely nothing for a Leo lady. Just so you know.

So, my friend, don’t be caught unawares, please, please, get that horoscope compatibility chart done, better to be safe than sorry.  More about Astrological compatibility.

Psychics

Psychics Translations

Psychics easily translate the mysterious, symbolic language that they see in visions, auras and crystal balls; so interpreting dream images is not difficult for them. In fact some are specialized in such work and it can be life enhancing to have that dream one always wondered about translated into a clear, logical depiction of our present situation or future possibilities. Maybe because the dream world can disturb, frighten, intrigue and surprise us, we need to learn to understand it more. It is indeed a hidden land of infinite possibilities, not only describing our unconscious urges, but our past and future. A very experienced Psychic has the capacity to hone in on the hidden “meaning” of our dreams which can comfort us. In fact, they can give us solutions and positive predictions on how to overcome life challenges based on the content of one dream!

Psychics Nightmares

Did a nightmare wake you up last night? Your favourite Psychics might advise you to buy yourself a Dream Catcher, a series of strands like a cobweb or net that the Ojibwa Nation Native Americans believed could catch all the bad dreams. In fact the Dream Catcher was usually hung over the beds of small children to protect them from frightening nightmares and was decorated with symbolic personal items such as small mementos or objects precious to its owner. According to the famous Native American Shaman Terri J. Andrews, “Only good dreams would be allowed to filter through. Bad dreams would stay in the net, disappearing with the light of day.”

Dream Catchers can be bought in most New Age Shops and fairs nowadays, having become very popular since psychics dreams are a fundamental part of who we all are. Nightmares, prophetic dreams, good dreams, bad dreams, we always wakeup in the morning trying to remember what that dream meant. You might be one of those people who never remember dreams, but you always dream whether you know it or not, and what you dream is in a unique symbolic language that Sigmund Freud classified as the “royal road to the unconscious”.

psychics nowAbraham Lincoln

Many sensitive Psychics have had telepathic dreams similar to Abraham Lincoln’s but not with the same drastic ending. Abe Lincoln, President of the United States of America dreamt of his own assassination. In his dream, he heard people weeping. He asked, “Who is dead in the White House?” and one of the soldiers in his dream replied, “The President he was killed by an assassin!” The most renowned novelist of all time Charles Dickens also had a precognitive dream. He recounted “On Thursday night of last week, being at the office here, I dreamed that I saw a lady in a red shawl with her back towards me. On her turning round I found that I didn’t know her, and she said, “I am Miss Napier.” All the time I was dressing next morning I thought–what a preposterous thing to have so very distinct a dream about nothing! And why Miss Napier? For I never heard of any Miss Napier. That same Friday night there came into my retiring-room Miss Boyle and her brother, and the Lady in a red shawl that they presented as “Miss Napier”!

Dreams – Psychics

Dreams also manifest on various levels. For example, the basic detox dream, a biochemical dream that could have to do with eating too much cheese the night before, or de-stressing from life’s problems. The past life dream, which is like watching a movie in which we star, with a clear plot from beginning to end. The prophetic dream, which is rare indeed but interestingly many people reported dreaming of 9/11 long before it happened. These types of prophetic dreams are garishly colourful and often dramatic. And the aforementioned telepathic dream, such as the dreams of Lincoln and Dickens. Telepathic dreaming has been scientifically tested in the USA. Subjects were brought into a laboratory to sleep, and then someone would select an image, which they would mentally communicate to the person sleeping. Then the subject would be woken up and asked to describe his dream. He would then be shown four pictures, and asked which one resembled the images in his dream. The subjects would successfully identify the pictures mentally projected to them over and over again.

But we could also decide to learn lucid dreaming if we truly want to understand our dreams. It is a technique whereby we keep a dream journal, remember our dreams and slowly become conscious within them able to direct them so we can change endings, create adventures and meet the perfect lover, but these types of dreams are difficult to create and need years of practice. Perhaps the trick is to just let dreams happen and enjoy them, as Bob Dylan quoted “I’ll let you be in my dreams, if I can be in yours” Perhaps our favourite Psychic will tell us whether the wonderful man we met in our dream last night, really is our soul mate, but that is another story!

Blackpool’s Tower Ballroom, the palace of showbiz is probably the only place in the country for such a fabulous entertainment extravaganza to be held. The huge ballroom has always been the people’s ballroom and it holds so many happy memories for millions of people who have danced to the melodies of famous bands and orchestras over the years, not to mention Reginald Dixon at the legendary Wurlitzer.

 

But, I’m getting ahead of myself.

 

What about the countdown to the final?

 

First of all we had to gather in London for group rehearsals early in the week and what fun it was to meet up with Nancy, Lulu, Audley, Edwina, Dan, Robbie, Holly, Alex, Anita and of course the remaining stars of the show Harry, Jason and Chelsee. We have all been on a wonderful 99 day long “Strictly” journey together and we have loved every, nerve jangling, muscle straining, footsore minute.

 

Thursday brought a few more last minute practice sessions.

 

On Friday we all had to clamber on the coach for a marathon eight hour journey from London through rain, hail, snow and mist to Blackpool to meet up for a laugh and a giggle with Zoe on “Strictly It Takes Two” and a short burst of “We do love to be beside the seaside”. The rigours of the journey were soon forgotten when we all settled down in the magnificent ballroom to drink in the atmosphere of the place and for one or two sneak previews of what Saturday night holds for us all.

 

And what a spectacular it was – Harry and Aliona get the full forty points for their Quickstep and 37 for their show dance. Jason and Kristina with a terrific Tango earning them 38 points and a full forty for their scintillating show dance. While Chelsee and Pasha won 39 pints for a jumping Jive and 36 for their superb show dance.

 

Then we all had to bite our nails while the phones rang and the votes were cast ready for the final of the final!

 

The “Strictly” results show saw Jason and Kristina bow out with cheers ringing in their ears. They have both done so well and pulled off some remarkable and memorable performances, but as I’ve said before – it’s the nature of the show, someone has to win and it can only be one couple. Jason’s grace, generosity and emotion are always and have always been apparent to us all since September. Well done Jason – you are a Star!

 

It was great to dance with Flavia again when all the competitors got together on the floor for one last dance together. Robbie and Rory swinging me to and fro and then getting hoisted high by the dancers was a very special experience for me. But then the music, the lights, the crowd and all of us friends together made it a memorable moment for me.

 

Chelsee and Pasha, Harry and Aliona both treated us to marvellous, magical magnificent performance. They were stunning, spectacular, stupendous and it was hard to choose between them, but once again there can only be one winner and it was Harry who had captured all our hearts that finally held the triumphant trophy aloft.

 

I know I will miss everyone involved, of course my fellow competitors, but also Alisha, Bruno, Len and even Craig.

 

Tess, Zoe and our very own national institution, icon and treasure, one of nature’s true gentlemen and a wonderful entertainer our very own Sir Bruce.

 

Well that’s it from me – the end of the “2011 Strictly Come Dancing” Blog I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it for you.

 

Thanks for being there on our journey and KEEP DANCING!

Bye Bye Robbie..

 

Although I am no longer part of the Saturday night fun and games this has still been a very busy week for me and all the competitors, past and Present in the “Strictly” line up.

 

IT was wonderful to be invited back for The “Strictly Christmas Special” and for Flavia and me to be announced as ‘special guest stars’ was just so amazing. It is going to be an essential “Don’t Miss” in the festive Christmas TV schedule. There is so much skill and dexterity to admire mingled with a few laughs along the way. So don’t miss it – you’ll love it.

 

Once again I cannot write the blog without mentioning all the drawings that are flooding in from the four corners of the country. I am surprised and touched by all the youngsters who are taking the time to draw pictures of Flavia and me and then send them to the BBC.

 

I don’t know if this sneezy, chill and coldy-fluey thing is down your way, but I think I might have picked up something nasty while I was down inLondon. I got home toWalesin the middle of the week, headed for the Lemsip, lit the fire and put the telly on.

 

One thing is certain the cool, clear, mountain air of Snowdonia will do me a power of good.

 

Now, what did you think of Saturday’s show? It was full of surprise and, of course, the expected. I think many people could have predicted that Harry and Aliona’s Paso Doble would be top of the leader board after that sizzling, sexy performance, but maybe quite a few folk were surprised that Jason and Kristina came so far down the board after they produced such a special moment to entrance and enchant us.

 

Chelsee continues to go from strength to strength although I much prefer Pasha without the green tinge.

 

With so few couples left in the contest the scoreboard gets shorter and shorter each week so even the very best that any couple can produce means it has to find its place on the board.

 

And so Robbie and Ola’s Quickstep after having reached such a high standard of energetic, entertaining performance and winning so many new friends and fans bow out of Strictly. Of course we shall all be meeting up for the final on December 17th inBlackpool and there’s the “Strictly Christmas Special to look forward too.

 

I don’t know about you, but I think the standard of dancing and performance is getting stratospheric. I know firsthand just how much time, effort, energy, concentration and stamina goes into each of the week’s training and performance. I take my hat off to everyone who is pulling all the stops out to make our Saturday night’s viewing complete.

 

And so the dance goes on….

 

Thanks for being there & KEEP DANCING!

Wonderful Anita..

Although I am no longer dancing the light fantastic with the rest of my friends this has been a far from quiet week.

 

Monday evening saw me once again on the couch with Zoe for “It Takes Two” and a chance to talk about Saturday night’s show. The Golden Shot from the big cannon and my flight through the air on what felt like a very small tea tray! Big hugs, big kisses. I love Zoe and I enjoyed every minute of our time together on the show.

 

Later in the week I was signing the new “Strictly Come Dancing” book in aWest Endbookshop and we were all amazed by the sheer numbers of people who turned out to snap up a signed copy.

 

More interviews, more photo-shoots and I think you’ll be amazed by some of the stuff the glossy celebrity magazines had in store for me.

 

I spent time with the Daily Mail who wanted to talk to me about my career and all the wonderful things I have done in the theatre over the years. It really is amazing when I pause for breath and look back over the years and think of all the wonderful people I have met, the places I have seen and the things I have been up to.

 

One of the wonderful things I simply have to mention is the number of children who have sent me their drawings of Flavia and I strutting our stuff. It’s so kind of everyone to send those lovely drawings in especially as they all show Flavia and me getting 10 points from all the judges! They are all on my fridge (I have a very big fridge!)

 

Lots of texts and calls from the gang on Saturday afternoon. Everyone is being very nice and saying how much they miss me, but “Strictly” is a competition and the standard is soaring to stratospheric levels that only the very best can hope to achieve and maintain.

 

So what did you think of Saturday’s show? Just as good as ever, in fact it just gets better and better doesn’t it?

 

I loved Alex’s cheekyCharlestonand thought Holly was just mesmerising. Robbie and Ola pulled off an exciting Samba in more than one way while Chelsee delighted us all with a wonderful performance. What can I say about Harry and Jason? They are just so good, such great energy and movement, such entertainment. Just marvellous.

 

I thought Anita and Brendan’s cha-cha-cha was simply spectacular. Anita is such a lovely person her exit from the show will leave heart-shaped hole in the “Strictly” line up. Nevertheless, it is the nature of the show that one couple must leave the competition every week.

 

I am meeting all the gang again next week because we are all starting our rehearsals for the “Strictly Christmas Special” It will be fabulous to see everyone again and it will definitely be a “Must See” in everyone’s Christmas viewing schedule.

 

Thanks for being there and KEEP DANCING!

All good things must come to an end..!

Well…. There we are – all good things must come to an end.

 

Saturday’s Wembley show was an exhilarating, exciting exit for me and I could have asked for a better send off.

 

The Big Bang theory saw me flying through the air with maybe not the greatest of ease and then landing to jive with the fabulous Flavia. It was all great fun, but you know and I know that each week one couple flies through the air and lands with a bump!

 

Even so the audience gave us a standing ovation. Sir Bruce claimed I had “Done it again!” Alisha said “Just when you think you’ve seen it all – that was the best ever entrance on Strictly” Bruno claimed it as an “Incredible or bit of madness” and he “Loved it!”

 

Craig was reduced to a “Revolutionary!”

 

Len added that whenever people talk about the history of “Strictly” they will always say “Do you remember when Russell Grant flew out of that cannon at Wembley?”

 

In many ways it is sad to go; I will miss the other dancers and all the wonderful people who have helped me backstage and away from the camera’s lens in production, wardrobe and make up. In other ways it will be nice to catch my breath before the final show and spend more time at home in the mountains ofWalesand start learning lines for my pantomime season inMilton Keynes.

 

We have waved goodbye to some lovely people and there will be more sad moments before the final inBlackpoolbut that’s what the show is all about.

 

Well Good Luck to all those still on the floor. They are all fabulous dancers. Each one of them deserves to win. I will miss you all, but I won’t miss those long practice sessions or those nerve racking results shows!

 

I shall end where I started – All good things come to an end! See you soon my friends

 

And KEEP DANCING!

Kylie Loves Russell Grant!

This week I have spent all my time down in theBigCityrehearsing for the Wonderful Wembley Whizz Bang! Of course every silver lining has a cloud and my cloud this week has been not being able to go home again toWalesand catch up with all the local news.

Now, I must start the blog with a big thanks to Billy and Ezra. Who are Billy and Ezra you might ask? Well they are the guys who were waiting behind the screen on last Saturday’s show with the golden glittery “Ferrero Roche” suit. That quick change was a real show stopper! Thanks guys.

 

As you might expect its been another busy week practising for what looks like being a real blast. Flavia and I have been getting into jive mode and the Wembley show needs a much bigger performance to fill that huge space.

 

The press interest has been phenomenal so there have been loads of interviews and photo shoots for Flavia and I to get along to in between our jive sessions and the most wonderful news of the week for me was that Radio 2 are putting together a special “Strictly on the Radio” show I will be presenting the show and you can hear it at 10.00pm on December 30th so reach for your diaries now and make a note.

Wednesday night Flavia and I were off to catch up with Zoe on “Strictly It Takes Two”. We always love dropping in on Zoe because we have such a good time.

I listened to Ian Waite and took on what he said about my head and kicks. I know I can sometimes have a bit of a nodding dog look when I am on the floor so I appreciate what he had to say and I aim to get a thumbs up from Ian for Saturdays show.

The real high spot of the show was the wonderful message from the fabulous Kylie. I have been a fan of hers for years and now, it seems, she is one of mine! Simply stunning and such a surprise I found myself welling up. Thanks Kylie.

Thanks too to Alex fromSurreyfor her lovely message of support and encouragement. It’s great to know the next generation are enjoying “Strictly” and that I am putting a lovely smile on their faces. Another very BIG thank you to James fromStockportand Madeleine from Retford who both sent me their drawings of me and Flavia. James seems to think all the judges are about to give me 10 points. Let’s hope that’s an omen for this week’s show.

 

More from me on Monday about how the Wembley show went.

Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the encouragement you send. It means so much.

If you are one of those who have sent me a message I must ask for your patience. Usually I deal with them all straight away, but the BBC have sent all the messages to my home and because this week has been so busy I have had to stay in London so I won’t be able to deal with the post until I get home again hopefully next Monday.

 

“Thanks for being there!” and Keep Dancing!

Russell is off to Wembley…

It’s been a busy time since I last had a chance on Thursday to update my Blog. A busy, but an exciting and even exhilarating time.

 

The days have passed in a melee of press interviews, practice sessions and preparations for the big show on Saturday. I have even had a couple of photo shoots for the glossy, celebrity magazines so I hope you’ll have as much fun seeing the photos as I had during the shoot.

 

Saturday night was a real high. Great dancing and great scores for Harry and Aliona and don’t they deserve their place at the top of the scoreboard. They are just so fantastic on the floor the rest of us just look on in admiration.

 

Chelsee and Pasha’s Foxtrot was “Elegant, graceful, gorgeous and sophisticated” and it earned them a well deserved second place with only one point behind Harry and Aliona. Holly and Brendan shared third place Jason and Kristina and once again they bring that special starry something to the evening.

 

It fell to me to bring the show to an end with one of my favourite songs “I am what I am” from the hit show – La Cage aux Folles. Well I was what I was and I had the greatest time dancing the American Smooth with Flavia and I think I did pretty well all things considered. Did you like the quick change? I have never been in and out of my clothes quicker! A standing ovation thrilled me to bits. The audience loved it. I loved it and I hope you loved it too.

 

Len dubbed me “The Giant Ferrero Roche” and followed it up with a “Well Done!”

 

I took Alisha to a “Fun Place” and Bruno thought I “Couldn’t wait to get out of the closet”

 

A single “Immortal” from Craig crowned my night.

 

Did you like the video before the dance with multiple me’s coming out of the woods to serenade the fabulous Flavia. We had some real fun and laughs doing that with the BBC crew up in the beautiful hills of my home inWales.

 

Sunday brought us together for the results show and we had to say good bye to the Big Man with the Big Heart. Audley and Natalie bowed out with their usual grace. We will all be sad to see them go, but that’s the way the show goes and sooner or later we will all go except for the wonderful winner of this year’s show.

 

Now I have a very busy week ahead of me. The Wembley show looks like being a true extravaganza. There are extra practice sessions built into the schedule. In between rehearsals there are more interviews and photo shoots to keep me busy. Whatever you do don’t miss Saturday’s show I can promise you it will be something special and you’ll see things you never thought you’d see and I can promise you, you’ll never see again! Intrigued? Tune in and watch!

 

More from me on Thursday about how the week has gone.

 

Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the encouragement you send. It means so much to me.

 

If you are one of those who have sent me a message I must ask for your patience. Usually I deal with them all promptly and reply straight away, but the BBC have sent all the messages to my home and because this week is so busy I have to stay in London so I won’t be able to deal with the post until I get home again next Monday.

 

Just one special mention – thank you to young James inStockportfor his drawing of Flavia and I getting 10 points from each of the judges and thanks to Madeleine and Violet Karczewski for her drawing and her kind words. They are both up on the fridge!

 

“Thanks for being there!” and Keep Dancing!

American not so smooth…

This week has been rather different and difficult.

Poor Flavia was due to travel fromLondontoNorth Walesfor our usual practice sessions, but with one thing and another the whole day was lost. Delayed leaving London Flavia travelled with the BBC film crew and got tangled up in traffic so she didn’t reachNorth Walesuntil 9.30 at night.

Not only that but because we had lost so much time the film crew decided to do some interview sessions straight away so filming began about 10.00 at night. After such a long day Flavia was her usual cheerful, charming self but I am sure she must have been tired out.

 

So a whole day was lost and so was our first practice session for the American Smooth. One thing it did give me a chance to do was to reply to all the kind and thoughtful messages, letters and emails people have sent. There were so many it took me most of Monday, but it’s always good to hear from everybody.

Wednesday was another busy filming day with some unusual shots that I am sure you will really enjoy on Saturday night’s show. You won’t want to miss it.

The American Smooth belies its name; it’s really quite demanding being a blend of Foxtrot and Quickstep but Flavia has made it all go as smooth as possible and I hope you will enjoy our interpretation and our dance to one of the big show stopping songs of all time.

Thursday was an early start. Down to London for a series of press interviews, photo-shoots and preparing for TV appearances on “It Takes Too” with the lovely Zoe and “This Morning” on Friday.

For those of you who don’t know I am an avid football fan. Mostly non-league club football. I have regularly been on Radio 5 Live and Talksport. Coming up soon is the first round of the FA Cup and so I am adding my thoughts on who might be the clubs to watch on Football Focus. If you’re a footy fan like me be sure to tune in.

Then it will be heads down and dancing shoes on for some last minute practice sessions ready for Saturday’s show. I am hoping to make it through to the following week’s big show from Wembley. That will be a show well worth watching. From what I hear it will be a real spectacular!

 

More from me on Monday about the Saturday’s show and what the next dance will be.

Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the encouragement and generous support you send me.

 

“Thanks for being there!” and Keep Dancing!

Russell tames the Spanish Bull…

So……. The Paso Doble was my passport to another week in “Strictly Come Dancing” I hope you enjoyed the comic interpretation of this dramatic dance that Flavia and I produced on Saturday night.

From Anita’sCharlestonto Chelsee’sCharlestonwe were treated to a spectacular evening of ever rising standards and styles. As the weeks fly by I am sure you’ve noticed the work levels rising and the performances becoming more and more exacting and exhausting.

We are all hoping Artem’s painful injury will ease over the weekend. I feel sure his determination to carry on will carry him through, but we all have to be careful and it just goes to show that even the fittest of and even the most highly trained can sometimes be taken by surprise by our bodies. Nevertheless Artem danced his way through the pain barrier and carried on to produce a “Cool and sophisticated” jive that captivated us all with its energy and intensity. Holly and Artem deserved every one of their 34 points.

 

Topping the score board were Chelsee and Pasha with a “Pleasing, teasing” brilliant performance that our Craig proclaimed “FAB-U-LOUS” and so it was!

So far as points are concerned it wasn’t Jason’s week and it wasn’t Robbie’s either but we all know that there are some dances that bring out our best and some we find more difficult and challenging. Even so both gave us wonderful performances and both were receptive to the advice and guidance of the judges.

Flavia and I were the eighth couple to take the floor in a light hearted interpretation of the Paso Doble. Last Thursday I blogged “our version will be very, very different” and I am sure you agree now you’ve seen it. Once again Craig was reduced to a single “ASTONISHING!”. Jennifer, standing in for Len thought it “Entertaining” Alesha “Loved it”. Bruno caught the essence proclaiming: “It was a Benny Hill version of a Paso Doble – demented and fabulous.”

Sadly, each week we have to say goodbye to one of our company. This week it was my friend Lulu and her partner Brendan. We will all miss them and we will remember her stunning Halloween performance.

Back toWalesfor a short rest. Tomorrow I shall be catching up with Flavia in the afternoon, that will give me a little time to write some horoscopes, catch up with the fan mail and, I believe, there are one or two newspapers who want to speak to me about Saturday’s show.

It’s a long journey each week from northWalestoLondonand back again, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. There really is “No place like home” and the mountain air of Snowdonia, the company of friends and neighbours and the chance to chat with people at our local shops make the trip worthwhile.

Thanks to everyone at our local Porthmadog supermarket who turned the store upside down searching for nail varnish remover! My wonderful make-up department gave me black fingernails for the Paso Doble. Rushing for the car I forgot to take it off before leaving Television Centre. Amazingly I had none at home. My god-daughter Lucy came to the rescue in the end – you can always rely on her!

More from me on Thursday about the week’s practice session – the next dance? American Smooth to I Am What I Am – rather me don’t you think! Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the encouragement and generous support you send me.

“Thanks for being there!”

Kylie Minogue is backing Russell Grant!

KYLIE Minogue is backing Russell Grant after he danced through the pain to one of her hits.

Russell, 60, wore a red suit and horns to dance to Better The Devil You Know with partner Flavia Cacace — despite torn cartilage in his knee.

Kylie sent Russell a Twitter message after the show, asking: “How did it go?”

After he replied, she joked: “Shimmy!” Russell said: “I want to thank Kylie for making mine and Flavia’s day.”

The astrologer yesterday put off having keyhole surgery on his knee, fearing it would put him out of the show.

Russell The Bull Fighter in his Pasa Doble

It’s been an interesting and inspiring week so far.

First of all, Monday morning brought a flood of emails to be dealt with and later that morning the postman arrived with a bundle of fan mail. On top of all that there are all the wonderful messages on Twitter and Facebook. I am totally bowled over by all these messages. Many of them tell me a little about people’s own history and how “Strictly” cheers them up at the weekend and how much they love to see Flavia and I take to the floor.

Talking about Flavia – we have been working on the Pasa Doble and practicing hard each and every day. Flavia really is a joy to be with. At once uplifting, motivating, inventive and with a total focus on what needs to be achieved each week.

I am finding the Pasa Doble is quite a difficult dance, it has its roots in the intense colour and drama of the Spanish bullfighting arena and is based on the type of music played at the entrance of the matadors. The bullfighter’s role is played by the man and traditionally the woman takes the part of the matador’s cape. But our version will be very, very different. I won’t say too much now but watch us on Saturdays show and I am sure you will be surprised, even amazed!

Wednesday evening saw me down at the local rugby club and if you think you will be surprised by our Pasa Doble wait to see what the rugby club get up to! As you can imagine there will be some hilarious moments.

 

Something a little different is in the offing! You may not know it but I am often on BBC Radio 5 Live talking about non-league football and sometimes cricket. I take a deep interest in all sorts of sport but especially non-league football and always have done, so it comes as a surprise to a lot of people to hear me talking footy. 5Live and Talksport are two stations who interview me regularly to get my thoughts on various matches and clubs. This time around I will be chatting about next weekend’s FA Cup 1st round and what surprises it might hold.

I shall be joining Zoe again on “Strictly It Takes Two”. It’s always great to see Zoe, she is such fun and the show is one of my favourites.

I am looking forward to Saturday’s show so much. It’s great to be dancing to the wonderful music and genuine joy to meet the rest of the gang. They are really wonderful people. Isn’t it a pity that at the end of each weekend we have to say goodbye to a couple. That’s “Strictly”!

More from me on Monday about how Saturday’s show went. Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the affection and generous support you are giving me. You’ll never know how much it means to me.

 

“Thanks for being there!”

Better the Devil you know!

Down to London from our energising practice sessions in North Walesmore fun and games with Zoe on Thursday night in “It Takes Two”. Friday morning found me swapping tales, choosing the music with Chris Evans on Radio 2 and it ranks as one of the most exciting and enjoyable radio experience ever. I always enjoy dropping in to Radio 2 and whether it’s with Chris or my regular spot with Steve Wright we always share a little gentle banter and a few laughs.

Friday and Saturday were fabulous in more than one way. Of course there were the practice sessions with my magical Muse Flavia – now that’s always a delight and I thought the show and the backstage build up to it was one of the best, but you’ve probably heard I’ve been getting a bit of a twinge in my knee every now and again. It doesn’t stop me walking, exercising or dancing so no worries there – the show must go on – so on with the show!

Saturday’s show was a hoot! Kitted out as ghouls, vampires and in all kinds of “shriek and scream” outfits. A bright red devil emerging from the flames I Sambad my way onto the dance floor to the strains of Kylie’s “Better The Devil You Know” theme. Eleven million people got a chance to see my tail – I hope you’ve recovered!

Len said I gave everyone the “Feel good factor”. Alesha asked “Kylie and Russell what more do we want?” Bruno claimed I had “Turned Hell into a camp heaven!”. Although everything didn’t quite go as Flavia and I had planned we still had a great time and judging by the cheers from the audience they did too.

 

Chelsee wasn’t happy with her Tango with Pasha but still got a wonderful 32 points. If that’s the sort of score they get when they think they haven’t performed to perfection what wonderful things are we about to see in the weeks ahead?

 

Alex and James treated us to a perfect Paso Doble and were rightfully cheered to the rafters. Getting 31 points and comments like “Erotic”, “Intense”, “Dramatic” and “Atmospheric”. It was exciting and energising to watch and a brilliant performance.

 

What can I add to what has already been said about Holly and Artem’s American Smooth. 35 well deserved and well earned points and a standing ovation! To echo the judges: “Stylish”, Exquisite”, “Incredible”, “Beautiful”, “Terrific”, “Artistic”. What will they produce for us next week? All I know is that it’s going to be great!

 

Harry and Aliona earned yet another standing ovation with their tantalising Tango, the judges raved, the crowd cheered and so they should. It was “Intense, hypnotic and erotic” and above all “Beautiful”. They have to be the ones to watch. They are a great couple and lovely people.

 

Robbie and Ola after his brush with the camera gave us a great Paso Doble. Bruno was “Lost for words” but he although he was tongue tied he kept his eyes open. Len saw some “Wobbly bits” and Craig was “Amazed”. Need I say more?

The amazing Flying Lulu and her Paso Doble was great entertainment with a flying entrance and heart stopping exit. Truly “Great”.

Can anything be added to the judges’ comments about Jason and Kristina’s Quickstep? Bewitching, beguiling and bewildering. Brilliant and perfect. Once again they danced elegantly to the top of the night’s score.

We were all sad to see Nancy and Anton bow out.Nancyhas been such fun and has always had an encouraging word for those of us who don’t have her lovely long legs!

Now I am back inWalesand looking forward to seeing Flavia later today and getting to grips with “Team Flavant’s” unique twist on the Paso Doble!

More from me on Thursday about how the practice sessions are going. Thanks again for all your wonderful messages and the affection and generous support you are giving me. You’ll never know how much it means to me.

“Thanks for being there!”

Spooky Strictly

Monday was a strange day. First of all there was a breakdown of communication somewhere along the line and Flavia missed her connecting train up toNorth Wales. By the time she arrived Monday was almost over and done with. On top of that I had to schedule time in the afternoon to visit our local hospital. The knee has continued to play me up so the doctors thought it would be a good idea to have an MRI scan to see what’s going on.

It is rather painful and I will have to watch what I get up to, but luckily this week’s dance is the Samba and that means a little less wear and tear on the knee.

As we approach Halloween we shouldn’t have been surprised to encounter one or two inexplicable happenings in our rehearsal rooms which are over 100 years old. First of all I heard someone call “Russell”, but there was no-one to be seen. Then Flavia heard someone cry out, but again there was no-one to be seen. To top it all I saw a figure run along the back of the balcony and apparently this is not the first time that people have seen this strange apparition in the hall! It’s all very spooky!

 

Although the practice sessions have been shortened by Monday’s events everything has gone very smoothly. Flavia and I both love the Samba. It has its origins inBraziland it is THE dance of the carnival season so that should be fun for everyone! Flavia says many people find it one of the more tricky steps to master, but I feel quite at home with this rhythmical, exciting dance. And Flavia agrees!

There’s a whole host of the kindest and most thoughtful letters and cards to read through and answer and that’s always a priority. Thank you to everyone who has written in – your encouragement and support means so much to me.

Thank goodness for an early night Wednesday. I was wacked out after a totally taxing, tiring time over the last couple of days. A lovely bit of smoked haddock for tea and in bed for ten o’clock because Thursday is an early start.

Up before 6.00 and off we go leaving our lovelyWalesand heading south toLondon. Today’s schedule has a lot of press interviews and joining Zoe for “It Takes Two” in the evening and somewhere along the line Flavia and I need to find time to practice our Samba.

Friday morning I shall be dropping in on Chris Evans to join him for his breakfast show and then back to the ballroom for some last minute rehearsals.

It certainly is a demanding time. The days fly by and there is hardly a spare moment to rest and relax. But I am loving every minute of it. This is definitely THE time of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

I know the rest of the gang will have been working just as long and as hard as I have and I am sure we are all feeling the pace one way or another.

I think you’ll enjoy Saturday’s show and although we will all be having a great time it will be tinged with sadness as we will have to say goodbye to one our small band.

See you Saturday and Thanks for being there!

The Show must go on…

 

 

Well… it was touch and go Saturday night especially for me. During a punishing practice week of not only dancing but scrambling up and down the majestic hills and valleys ofNorth Waleswith a BBC film crew in tow my leg and ankle was playing up even more than usual. So much so that at one point there was a question as to whether or not I would be able to dance on Saturday!

 

But “The Show Must Go On! So with the knee supported and with an ice pack strapped to the inside of it we and the remaining eleven took to the floor.

 

Wasn’t it lovely to see Edwina in the audience? She is so kind, generous, supportive and always encouraging.

 

But, there I go again getting ahead of myself… lets go back to frantic Friday when I dropped in on “Loose Women” at lunchtime and then rushed round to the Beeb where we had great fun with Zoe on “It Takes Two”. Lots of people love this show as much as Saturday’s performances and if you haven’t tuned in yet you mustn’t miss it this week.

 

Saturday is a busy practice day, but we still have time to have a chat here and there. Lulu and Anita are great fun and we spend lots of time chatting and chunnering over the week’s events and what lies ahead. Anita was very nervous, but she needn’t have been she produced a truly elegant performance packed with glamour and sophistication. Even our dear Craig “Loved it” calling Anita’s dance “Classy, sophisticated and a consummate pro”. Anita wowed the audience and pulled off a wonderful 32 points! Great Stuff!

 

Another energising and entertaining show from Robbie and Ola got a standing ovation but only 27 points. I loved it all and enjoyed seeing them at the football ground and what a wonderful response they had from the thousands of fans.

 

What can I say about Chelsee and Pasha’s Quickstep except to echo the judges? Craig: “1st Class”. Len: “Fantastic”. Alesha “Ended too soon”. Bruno’s “Pocket Rocket”. They were fabulous and pulled off one of the most deserved highest scores so far. A wonderful well-earned 36 points!!!

 

So from the top of the score board to pretty near the bottom. 24 points for Flavia and I. Are we downcast? Are we downhearted? Not one bit of it. We produced an imaginative and creative dream sequence which flowed on naturally from those shots from atop the mountains ofWales. My partners were Teddy and Flavia and both were about to perform to perfection.

 

The huge cheers that greeted us and Bruce’s gag about “The huge R’s” got us off to a great start and the standing ovation at the end brought a tear to my eye.

 

It was lovely of Bruno to call me a “Brilliant Sleeping Beauty” and an “Entertaining” from Craig was pretty good. Len pronounced it a “Whimsical and endearing performance, full of charm” and Alesha was kind enough to proclaim me a “Strictly Legend!”.

 

Sir Bruce threw in an “Amazing” and a “Marvellous” and suddenly it was all over.

 

It certainly was all over for big hearted Rory and Erin who also scored 24 points. It was oh so sad to wave them the fondest of farewells on Sunday evening. Their kindness, encouragement and support will be missed by us all. The show will miss them but the show must go on!

 

Next week Flavia and I are dancing the Samba! Let’s hope the knee holds up, it certainly will be a test. I am aiming for more than 24 points next week so we will be hoping to pull all the stops out.

 

Thanks again for all the support coming through the post and via email, Facebook and Twitter. So many friends, so many well wishers – Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

 

See you Saturday & Thanks for being there!

It Takes Two to Tango!

It takes two to Tango and that’s what I am finding out this week with Flavia to guide me through the steps of this passion packed ballroom dance.

 

It was a late night journey back toWales, but it went quickly as I was over the moon to have made it through another week.

 

There really is no place like home. But then it was up bright and early to deal with the pile of fan mail that has started to flood in. Then down to the practice rooms to let Flavia put me through my paces.

 

This week the BBC have also done some filming around my house and the fabulous scenic Snowdonia. I think you’ll enjoy seeing the house and the mountains.

 

It’s a precise, non-smiley, aggressive dance to get a handle on but Flavia makes everything seem so simple and straightforward. She is a great teacher and a wonderful charismatic partner as you’ll see on Saturday.

 

Monday saw me doing my regular slot with Steve Wright in the Afternoon and Flavia came along with me to the BBC studios to make a very special guest appearance that everyone loved. Steve was delighted to hear Flavia and I am sure it made his day – well it would wouldn’t it! Praise indeed from Mr. Wright when he told Flavia that it was my “infectious enthusiasm that made me so watchable”.

 

A blustery, showery Wednesday with a definite nip in the air saw more outdoor filming and a gruelling practice session that left me wearily wacked out but all fired up for what I hope will be a scintillating Saturday.

 

Lamb chops for dinner! The waning waistline keeps on shrinking. I feel on top of the world and hoping and praying to make it successfully through the weekend.

 

The fabulous support and affection that have come my way since the show began have been wonderful from Facebook and Twitter to email and snail mail so many messages of encouragement have come flooding in it takes my breath away. Thank you all so much.

 

See you Saturday and Thanks for being there!

Foxtrot! Foxtrot! Foxtrot!

 

When you see the professionals gliding across the floor it gives you no idea of just how difficult it is to pull off the truly faultless foxtrot. Keeping the arms and shoulders in the correct position whilst dipping forwards and backwards and twirling round and round really is a challenge.

 

Saturday brought its ups and downs. I’m sure everyone inWaleswas heartbroken to see our wonderful, dedicated team go down to the French by only one point.Walesis the small country with the BIG heart and we were all hoping to see our team make it to the finals. Well, it wasn’t to be, but we’ll welcome the boys home again knowing what a fine job they did and knowing in our heart of hearts that “we should have been there”!

 

Then it was off to television centre, a few last minute practices with Flavia (where would I be without her?). A last minute costume check – all in white from top hat to tails except for the yellow dickey and then – on with the show.

 

It was another great evening. Everything goes so quickly. The lights, the music the audience make it a truly magical moment. Once again my spot on the floor comes towards the end of the show so it gives me a chance to nervously watch all the others and weren’t they great?

 

Everyone can see just how much effort has gone into the week’s practice sessions since last Saturday.  Six couples scoring over 30 points – wow!

 

Rory and Erin’s quickstep was stylish and brilliant, Chelsee and Pasha’s cha-cha-cha saucy, rhythmical and energising while Jason and Kristina’s Tango was as Craig said, “stu-pen-dous!”

 

Then, in what seemed like the twinkling of any eye it was time for Flavia and I to hit the floor. What a huge cheer! That certainly put a spring in my step. As I said before the Foxtrot is more demanding than you might think, but Flavia was there by my side and with Barbra Streisand’s “Don’t Rain On My Parade” to dance to the moments passed all too quickly. Yet another standing ovation – it’s all just too wonderful for words. And the judges were so kind. To be “Uplifting” and “Sunny” is all well and good but to be Alesha’s “Guilty pleasure” is really something! This week’s theme was Broadway and when Len said I put the show in showbiz I was over the moon!

 

Well, there we are, another week has gone. We say a fond farewell to Dan and Katya and we will all miss them so much.

 

Flavia and I are still hanging on in there and now we have to start practicing the Tango!!! If our Tango is as great as the one Robbie and Ola treated us to on Saturday then I really will have stars in my eyes.

 

The huge waves of support and affection that have broken over me since the show began have been mind-blowing from Facebook and Twitter to email and snail mail so many messages of encouragement have come flooding in it simply takes my breath away.

 

See you Saturday

 

“Thanks for being there!”

Fabulous Foxtrot

A small change of routine this week. Instead of heading up to wonderfulWalesafter the weekend shows I stayed down south with my dear old dad. It was great not to have the late night journey but I do love my home and I miss all my friends in Snowdonia. It has to be one of the greatest and loveliest places on earth.

 

Despite not having any long journeys to do it has still been a hectic week. Practicing the Foxtrot with my soulmate Flavia has been taxing, for this, I suppose will be my first attempt at what could be described as a traditional ballroom dance. Even so Flavia is showing me some “Fabulous” moves and despite continuing twinges in my jangled leg I am doing my very best to keep up.

 

Wednesdays “Strictly It Takes Two” was great fun. Zoe had a done a “Fabulous” count by tallying all the times I have said fabulous and wonderful over the last few practice sessions. I keep dishing out the superlatives, because that’s how I feel about the whole “Strictly” experience. The chance to dance with a wonderful partner who I feel totally in tune with. The music, the orchestra, the lights, the audience – it is all totally, absolutely fabulous and I love every minute.

 

Of course the highlight of the week has to be Sir Bruce’s knighthood and the whole pomp and circumstance that goes with it. One of the national newspapers was kind enough to call me a “national treasure” this week; but we all know who is the true national treasure. The pleasure, entertainment and fun that the ever gracious, consummate professional Sir Bruce has given us over the years makes him the real gem in entertainment’s diadem of stars and long may he continue.

 

I have also been lucky enough to be invited to revisit some of theWest Endtheatres I appeared in in earlier days. My theatrical roots are strong and I love the stage and performance so it was a thrill to visit some of those world famous stages that I have been fortunate enough to perform on.

 

Now it’s a no holds barred round of practice and rehearsal ready for Saturday night. I must say I am more than a little nervous about the Foxtrot. I can rely on Flavia to see me through and I am working long and hard to make sure my performance will match hers. And that’s a BIG ASK!

 

If there is one thing that really keeps me going forward it’s the response I am getting from all of you out there. So many messages of support and encouragement. I am moved and literally speechless, which for me is really something!

 

And now I am off to practice my Foxtrot!

 

“I hope you will be watching and enjoying the show the show next week your support and encouragement means so much to me and all of us.”

 

“Thanks for being there!”

Russell plans a special Foxtrot

An early morning dash in the dark by car from Wales to London, and a busy day of interviews with newspapers and radio stations followed by an early evening appearance on “Strictly It Takes Two”.

 

Talk about “Footloose” after a long day I kicked off my shoes with Zoe and did the interview in my cushion clutching, stocking feet – clutching a cushion because as I revealed to the viewers the shirt was a tad tight and sometimes we all need a cushion!

 

No respite on Friday – another early morning start for BBC’s Breakfast Show. You’ll remember this was where I started back in the 80’s so in a strange way it was like coming home to be back on the couch! It was great to hear Alex and James sharing their thoughts about the show so far.

 

More interviews on Friday and a vital last practice salsa session with Flavia so we will deliver the perfect performance on Saturday.

 

Flavia and I have had so many good luck messages from well-wishers it really gives us both such a big boost. It really means a lot to us to know you’re out there urging us on.

 

And so…. ON WITH THE SHOW…. And what a scintillating start from Chelsee and passion-packed Pasha one of three couples to scoop a magnificent 29 points.

 

Dan and Katya gave us some head over heels fun and my old buddy Lulu with partner Brendan bounced back with a fabulously graceful performance.

 

Holly and Artem’s great cha-cha-cha performance last week was followed up this week with high kicking brilliance that even had Craig saying “Great!” – where will it all end?

 

Weren’t Robbie and Ola just so stylish and smooth they deserved their standing ovation, I was thrilled and once again our Craig loved it!

 

Jason and Kristina stole the show and our hearts, what a class act they are, they told a great story and their moves are just awe inspiring to watch.

 

I can’t go without mention wonderful Nancy and Anton, they were thrilling, exciting and all that “Strictly” is all about. Glitzy, glamorous, they kept going and showed us all a trick or two on the dance floor despite Nancy’s bad leg.

 

After my results on Zoe’s campometer and Bruce’s Glastonbury gag about “camp as a row of tents” I was over the moon to be the “Dancing Queen” of the night and bring so much fun to the night that the judges thought I put “the boy in flamboyant”. Of course I loved every milli-second and Flavia, my soulmate and inspiration once again showed me the moves that make her a champion. I hope I left you with a smile on your face and when Craig gives me a pat on the back I know I went starry-eyed!

 

Of course, this is “Strictly” and the voting process starts. It’s a bit hackneyed to say “Someone has to go”, but that is the name of the game! And so Edwina and Vincent have left us, a wonderful, gracious lady with a fabulous dance partner. Well Done Edwina!

 

And now I am off to practice my Foxtrot!

 

“I hope you will be watching and enjoying the show the show next week your support and encouragement means so much to me and all of us.”

 

“Thanks for being there!”
