Russell Grant's horoscopes Augt 6 to Aug 12By Russell Grant

Leo (Jul24/Aug23) The spirit of generosity is alive and well and it's a two way street. On the incoming half, you're on the receiving end of a lovely array of gifts, some hoped for and some surprising. It's the outgoing half you need to be more concerned with. Feeling great puts you in the frame to extend yourself further than you should financially, and eventually, you'll have to pay the piper! Find ways to celebrate life and friendships without breaking the bank.
Virgo (Aug24/Sep23) You like the feeling of being of use, so signing up to support a worthy cause or charity will fill the bill nicely. Do some investigating up front to assure yourself of an organisation's credibility and track record, then when you're satisfied, get involved. If you're heading to any remote locations that need immunisations, make sure you get them. An old health issue could trouble you if you're not watchful, so take care.
Libra (Sep24/Oct23) Your creativity is on the rise as you're overcome with ideas for home decorating, fashion accessorising or some type of artistic expression. By the time you're done you may have painted a landscape, written a bestseller, danced in a contest or performed in a local play. It doesn’t matter what you end up doing so long as you have fun and tap into skill or talent you thought you might have, but haven’t done anything about it.
Scorpio (Oct24/Nov22) Never fearful of taking a risk you easily enter into a partnership with someone others think of as rather “iffy” and “dodgy”. That won't bother you because you see something most people don't take the time or effort to see. What does affect you is the opinion of a friend or relative; you interpret their reaction as meaning they don't respect your judgement.
You dislike being thought of as frivolous, gullible or just plain silly.
Sagittarius (Nov23/Dec21) An attractive charmer is hoping to spend time with you, but there's more going on here than meets the eye. It’s not surprising that you feel good about this, given the qualities of the person in question, but look deeper. What will it benefit this individual to be seen with you? You have more going for you than they have. If you're up for what could be a mutually beneficial public appearance, go for it, but go with your eyes open.
Capricorn (Dec22/Jan20) Family connections and traditions are important to you so it will be revealing when you find yourself in a position to support or reject a relative who could use some confidence building, having your backing may not be the best way for you to help them, especially if it calls for a financial investment. Without turning them away, figure out what you can do for them without sacrificing your principles.
Aquarius (Jan21/Feb19) Some sort of cultural or artistic gathering provides you with a platform to interact with key people who share your enthusiasm for an unconventional idea. Of course you'll attend! Although what you want to accomplish is rather unusual, it is something that needs to be done as it will benefit many people who could use help. There are few people more motivated than you to take the helm of this project, so step up!
Pisces (Feb20/Mar20) So long as you can keep a cool head and help others to keep calm you won’t worry if plans and projects grind to a temporary halt. Not everyone is open to a rational approach.
Try reminding them that things can't always keep moving onward and upward. It's your own accepting attitude and lack of frustration that puts folks in a better frame of mind. This lull in proceedings gives you a chance to explore a new option or opportunity.
Aries (Mar21/Apr20) It’s great to see so many of your personal and professional projects moving forward so smoothly. People who can help you are interested in pitching in and getting involved, some with financial backing, if that's what you need. While so much attention is being focused on you, you could start to think you're entitled to all this, and begin acting accordingly.
Beware of taking that sort of stand, being humble and grateful serves you better and helps foster continued support in the future.
Taurus (Apr21/May21) Your work on the job or in your domestic environment is attracting unexpected attention. Doing your best at all time is part of how you operate, but pressuring yourself to outperform could backfire with an onset of a whole range of health issues. You’re best when you're feeling unwell isn't the same as your best when you're at your peak; it's silly toexpe ct that it would be. Be satisfied with knowing you always give what you can under changing circumstances.
Gemini (May22/Jun21) More than a few people you deal with now strike you as being on fire with new ideas or just with their own view of themselves. This gives you a prime opportunity to team up with someone you get along with easily for fun activities or previously delayed projects. Your social life gets a big boost when you attend a gathering you hadn't initially planned on going to. A relationship surprise opens an exciting chapter in your life, whether for simple companionship or romance, your choice!
Cancer (Jun22/Jul23) Your homing energy is a driving force that can’t be ignored as you expect someone may be dropping by, but a need to be out among compatible friends is also in play. With all the wireless devices available there's no need to sit at home wondering when and if someone special will turn up. Lay aside the "what ifs" and go have some real fun with real people you really like. An unusual invitation will eventually take you further from your home ground than you would have ever imagined.
