Celebrity Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, August 14:

Aries

You might look back and realise you have been spending without thinking. You can't blame anyone else if you've been careless about cash in the past. It's not as if anyone held your hands behind your back and forced you to spend. So why waste even more money now? If you don't need it, don't buy it. A hint of friction in the home in the weekend could be due to some ill feeling when either you or someone you live with has to make work a priority.

Taurus

You'll be as happy as the day is long providing you are left to your own devices. As the week begins, your main aim will be to avoid people who love to whinge and jobs that aren't your responsibility. Once you've had a few days to think about it, you will know what to do to move a joint project forward. You are beginning to appreciate the support around you at work. Where some people have been shirking their responsibilities there are others who can't do enough for you.

Gemini

When you take over a team venture, the sheer volume of problems will astound you. You will do your best to resolve the situation. That's why you are pulling out all the stops to hold up a group project that seems to be on the brink of collapse. Once you have everything clear in your mind, the next step is to present your thoughts to others. Your career and outside activities seem to be taking over your life and yet, you will enjoy this challenge.

Cancer

Money is flowing now. This makes you feel more secure. Don't be surprised if you find yourself in the mood to spend as your thoughts veer to ways to make your home cosier. A run of good luck will last a few days but money will run out if you keep on spending so be sure to save as you go. You might notice some envy creeping into a work relationship when a colleague makes it obvious they resent your success. They should try working harder.

Leo

Whatever your plans for the week ahead if a more exciting opportunity comes along, you will be ready for it. It won't be easy to inspire others to get a move on. This is because they don't share your enthusiasm for work you are supposed to be doing together. Don't be surprised if you end up doing most of this job on your own. A friend might offer you a ticket to an outdoor event or concert when, for unanticipated reasons, they can't now make it.

Virgo

No matter how much you try to help someone in the family, they just don't seem to want your assistance. It won't be easy to leave them to struggle on alone but this is what they want and this will be how they learn more about themselves. You might find it hard to concentrate on detailed work later in the week. Double check all complex jobs before classing them as complete. Try to arrange it so you can do something relaxing.

Libra

You may be busy from the start to the end of each day and in constant demand from friends but you should take regular breaks. Instead of going out in the evenings if you aren't in the mood to socialise, stay in and put your feet up at home. Sometimes the most loving thing you can do for someone is to treat them with respect and courtesy. Practicing kindness and compassion will help you and a partner reconnect on a romantic level.

Scorpio

This would be a great time to begin a home improvement project. As much as you love your home you may recently have been getting bored with your usual surroundings and a change is needed. Just painting a drab room bright colours will lift your spirits. Whether you're dealing with a financial, legal or property matter, listen to what the experts are telling you. You are entering a time when you start looking towards the future with hope and confidence.

Sagittarius

There's a hint of confusion and uncertainty in the air. Avoid making serious decisions. If anyone wants answers from you, take your time over deciding how much information you want to reveal. Others will look to you to take charge of a project that is going wrong. You might decide to turn down this offer. Someone will complain when they had expected more from you but you can't force yourself to act when you aren't in the right mood for it.

Capricorn

You have something to celebrate. Your past hard work is starting to bear fruit and you should be proud of your accomplishment. A colleague or fellow student will be envious of your success and they aren't making any attempt to hide their feelings. You are disappointed with their reaction but you shouldn't let this bother you. If they worked as hard as you, they too could be successful. In all areas and at all times, let common sense be your guide.

Aquarius

You should really think carefully before making financial decisions. A charming salesperson will propose a quick and easy way to make some money. It won't be and intuitively you will know they aren't to be trusted. Even though you aren't usually a one to enjoy monotony, you could be surprised that in the weekend all you will want is to have some time with no challenges, no change, no demands and no stimulation.

Pisces

Family are supportive and this makes all the difference when you have some difficult decisions to make. Working from home seems like the ideal solution to a current dilemma. If you have to reorganise your domestic scene to give you more elbow room, those you live with will be happy to help. An older colleague will be in an especially helpful mood and they will know how to make shared work more interesting.
