Celebrity Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, July 10:

Aries

You're tempted to give in to a relative's pleas even though this will be an inconvenience. They will remind you of all they have done for you but they seem to forget you've already done them many a favour or two in the past. If you give in to them now, it will be doubly difficult to stand up for yourself in the future. A sudden inspiration will prompt you to start work on a creative project you've put off for months.

Taurus

Keeping worries, anxieties and negative thoughts inside is making you even more tense and anxious. Start opening up to others. Confiding in someone you can trust is one way to pull yourself out of the mire. Talk to a close friend and you will feel the difference. An established relationship might begin on a new phase. You could find yourself thrust in a position of authority when a person in charge is unavoidably delayed. You are more than capable of handling these extra responsibilities.

Gemini

After a close friend lets you down badly, you're more determined than ever to make sure no one takes advantage of you. Causing waves in relationships isn't something you will do with joy but if that's what it takes to stand up for yourself, that's what you will do. Your aim will be to keep your feelings private and because your feelings run deeply, this will take a lot of willpower. You aren't entirely sure about a work opportunity. Take time to think about it.

Cancer

Take the chance to get to know someone you see most days but you haven't really talked to. You could find yourself working behind the scenes together and this seems to be the ideal opportunity to increase your interactions. If you are single and recently you've been playing hard to get, be ready to change tactics. Teamwork and group activities are the best way to get things done. Someone who is helpful, kind and fun to be with is sure to add a dash of spice to your days.

Leo

Being willing to put effort into your goals is what will ultimately make you successful. It really doesn't matter what other people say. If you are serious about your aims, you will find a way to achieve and you will do this with or without the support of your family and friends. You're thinking about returning to something you gave up a while ago. The time is right now to give it another go and you sense this too.

Virgo

If someone made you a promise don't listen to their excuses as why they suddenly cannot keep it. No matter what others do to you, demand they honour all contacts and agreements made. Preparations continue for a big event that's being planned for the future. The chance to make some money out of a hobby or some other interest shouldn't be overlooked. Even if this is not a regular source of income, it will still be satisfying earning money from doing something you love.

Libra

A colleague will be quick to point out your mistakes. Their words will upset you and you might feel they are being overly critical. If you need advice you would be better off consulting a more sensitive adviser. Do your best to avoid argumentative and discordant situations as rows will affect your health in negative ways. Getting involved with a community or charitable project will take your mind off problems that are plaguing you.

Scorpio

Don't give up if you're struggling to accomplish something alone. Instead try teaming up with like-minded people or think about turning this challenge into a community exercise. You will accomplish more through joining forces with others than you would on your own. Besides, being a part of a team will bring more meaning to your life. Are you job hunting? A good move would be to put together a list of contacts who might help you progress your career.

Sagittarius

The help you need is close by. Friends and workmates who are skilled and experienced are willing to help you. Be sure to make good use of this wonderful opportunity while you can. Someone will make it clear how attractive they find you. It will be a big temptation to respond to their advances. If you already have a partner, do you really want to jeopardise this relationship? A few moments of passion is no substitute for a loving, supportive partnership.

Capricorn

A heart to heart will encourage you to say things you've been thinking recently but haven't had the courage to admit. Your loved ones will be more forthcoming now that you are showing a willingness to handle uncomfortable personal truths. You know that it is time to stop avoiding the inevitable. With their support, you will find it easier to get a hold of your emotions. Meeting up with a friend will bring a surprise when they make a significant announcement.

Aquarius

Be honest about your aims and intentions. Beating about the bush will irritate someone who is trying to help you. You regularly give your time to others and will often be the first to help those in need. That's why you shouldn't hesitate to ask when you could do with some help. If you're ready to drop some responsibilities, let people know it. Don't feel guilty for wanting to make pleasure a bigger part of your life.

Pisces

A close friend or partner is a tower of strength as they get involved in important arrangements you are making. Although you're kept busy most of the time, there's a cheerful and optimistic spirit in the air. Your positive and flexible approach to a group challenge will put you on the path to abundance. Someone who admires your versatility will offer you a job. Working for a large organisation will be more rewarding than expected.
