Celebrity Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, July 24:


An offer to join a group or enter a partnership will be hard to resist when you are getting on so well with people around you. Even though romance will take second place to your work and other obligations, your partner will understand. You will feel inspired to make some changes that will hopefully bring benefits your way in the future and a loved-one’s encouragement will help spur you on. By the end of the week you will have more time to make romance and close relationships a priority.


Trying to stay one step ahead is the way to make a success out of a joint venture. You will get the support you need from your local council, charities and community groups. Making a report could be the final piece of intelligence those in high places need. Now the right action can be taken to right a suspicious situation. In all matters and in all areas, follow your conscience and there will be no regrets.


A long-standing friendship is going through problems but are these issues as serious as your mind is making them out to be? You could be letting your imagination run away with you and imagining a situation is worse than it is. Someone in the family is keen to venture into unfamiliar territory but something is making you hold back. The end of the week is not a good time to explore the unusual or the unknown.


A sudden restlessness will prompt you to try new avenues. You aren’t bothered whether or not these will take you anywhere. You just want to explore and experience something new. If you do take a path that turns out to be wrong for you, you can always retrace your footsteps. You wonder why relatives have left you out of family arrangements you would have enjoyed. It may be that they got the wrong impression and thought you weren’t interested.


Emotions are so up and down it will be hard to know how you are really feeling. A situation is unpredictable and this isn’t helping. You’re longing for some calm and consistency but this is going to be difficult to achieve. A release from some heavy commitments will bring a sense of relief. Take this chance to enjoy a change of scenery. It can help to view your life from a new perspective when you take yourself away from all that is going on.


It’s upsetting when you aren’t included in a group project you would have loved but there are reasons why you haven’t been invited. Friends realise you already have too many responsibilities and they have not wanted to add to your burdens. This is a good time to think about your priorities and consider how you might reduce commitments. You might be feeling lonely and misunderstood but it could be you’ve become too wrapped up in your own problems that you haven’t noticed others, too, are going through a difficult time.


You wish your friends, family and colleagues would tell you what was on their minds rather than leaving you guessing about what it is they are expecting from you. You would happily be more helpful and it would mean a lot to you to be able to support them but they need to tell you what they are planning and ask for help. Making plans for the future is difficult because of your uncertainty about where you stand in a certain relationship.


Different people will behave in different ways. You are aware of this but what you weren’t expecting is how awkward an older relative will be regarding a matter they are normally happy with. It may be that their needs are changing and they are starting to realise this too. An investigation into a suspicious event will go on longer than anticipated when an appeal is made for new information. You might be asked to investigate further.


A job you are working on with a partner will be the cause of a heated discussion. The situation is starting to make you feel stifled. You need some time to consider whether or not you want to continue with this commitment. You could do with a change of scenery. If you can’t get away, go for a long walk and this will help blow away the cobwebs. Creative pastimes will also ease the pressure you are under like opening a valve.


A group project has hit a bump in the road. You’ve got this far and it would be a shame to throw in the towel because this makes you confused or disappointed. Eventually you will start moving in the right direction again and the tension between you will start to ease. Art, music and being creative will be soothing. It will be fun to experiment creatively and instead of following old formulas you will enjoy developing ones of your own.


You and a partner have some making up to do after recent misunderstandings. You can be impulsive at times but you know the risks. You’ve fallen harder than you are willing to admit to others but you will accept the consequences of your actions. It might seem impossible to get a loan, grant or mortgage at this juncture but don’t give up hope. Things will get better. Stay positive and be ready for new opportunities.


Focus on jobs that are likely to be tricky early in the week when your mind is clear and your energy levels high. If there is something you have been putting off dealing with, make a start now. To get the best results, make it your aim to concentrate on these matters. Friends are in a changeable mood. One moment they want to meet up, the next they change their mind. This makes it difficult to make firm arrangements.
