Russell Grant's horoscopes 27 Aug to 2 SeptBy Russell Grant
August 28, 2012
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) You'll be meeting some influential people and learning a lot from their example.
Solid, dependable types attract you and they'll soon become your firm friends.
If you've been hoping for expert advice or a sign from above regarding how to handle a delicate matter, you'll soon find the inspiration you seek.
As the week winds to an end take care of important personal and professional correspondence; remember to say thanks where thanks are due.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) You may want to get a second pair of hands to get the proper material together for a project. Why? You can't seem to string two sentences together that make sense. With your eyes on a distant horizon, you'll have to start planning now if you ever hope to get there.
That means pinching pennies and perhaps even making small sacrifices, like foregoing that daily latte in favour of plain coffee. Minor adjustments made now will be more than pay off later.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Someone you meet every day is becoming a bit too hot to handle and you're not comfortable confronting feelings of anger or displays of temper. It would be a good idea to bring in a third person who can act as an impartial buffer while you talk things through.
Later in the week you can indulge your creative side by fashioning or viewing works of art. You're particularly sensitive and will find it therapeutic to express yourself with painting or drawing.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) People around you who've been feeling listless get a big wake up call when you arrive on the scene! You know what you want and how to get it; what more could any civilised person ask?
Friends who attach themselves to you are in for a wild ride and you surely won't disappoint onlookers who just want to catch a glimpse of a spectacle.
Your high energy will be put to good use as you attack a work project and put the stamp of success on it.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) You get praise where praise is due for knowing how to get a job done and where to go for help when it's needed. Superiors are impressed with your ingenuity and enthusiasm for a project that few had the courage to tackle.
Before the week runs its course take a look at your upcoming needs and make a promise to cut back on frivolous spending. You'll feel better down the road if you have a little cash put away; you know how important security is!
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) If you start the week feeling grumpy and grouchy you can work out your frustrations by talking to a sympathetic friend. All you really need to know is that someone cares; once you’ve said your piece you can get your head out of the sand and get on with things.
Friends have a few surprises in store as an unexpected announcement paves the way to an adventurous weekend. A feeling of kinship with new people you meet inspires you to make travel plans.
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) Use the coming days to tell someone close to you how you really feel and you will put their mind at rest and set their heart singing. Getting out and about is favoured so take yourself off to the cinema or to a musical event and add to the drama by throwing in a treat for drinks and snacks afterward.
As the week progresses there's more work to be done than you expect, so hop right into it so you can look forward to cosy leisure as the week draws to a close.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) Establish good contacts and build healthy relationships at the start of the week. Leave the latter half to attend to solitary pursuits, home repairs, reading and other quiet activities. In fact, you're reaching a point where you actually need to spend some quality time by yourself so you can return to the flow renewed in spirit and outlook.
Friends understand what you've been facing recently and are supportive and ready to help in whatever way needed.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Unusual occurrences add spice and adventure to life so be ready for surprises at every turn. If you've been planning to play a practical joke on someone, this would be a good time to raise a laugh.
Emotions run high by midweek and you'll easily find yourself on both ends of the spectrum between laughter and tears. Creative activities are favoured, so sink yourself into anything that will help you forget a problem and focus on more constructive pleasures.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) With tasks that need doing you'll be relying on the help of several friends, relatives and workmates to help you do something you can't do by yourself. A team effort makes the job fun and if you treat the group afterward, they'll all be agreeable to come on board next time you're in a similar fix.
Although you'd prefer it if you could remain in the background, attention comes your way for a professional accomplishment, so be bold and accept the praise that’s due.
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) A new friend does you a good turn and an old one stands ready to speak up for you in your absence. You can count your lucky stars that you have such a network of staunch supporters who think so highly of you that they'd put their own reputations on the line for you.
By the end of the week you come up with a really clever idea, but keep an eye out for sharks who'll want to take credit. Document your work and do what’s necessary to protect your interests.
Leo (Jul24/Aug23) Admit you don't know everything and need to do some research or study before saying anything. Better that, than pretend you have everything under control when you don't. Your honour and integrity are your most valuable assets so don't compromise them.
People you work with may attempt to pry into your personal life, but you can gracefully side step this intrusion by applying humour. Spending time with older people gives you a sense of stability.
