Celebrity Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, April 23:

A trying and troublesome situation will actually serve a useful purpose in that it brings a number of petty annoyances to a head. People will be looking to you to make the most important decisions because they know you will take action on what you decide on. What they won’t see is your uncertainty. Take a deep breath and trust that you will make the right moves and choices. Responsibilities you take on now will put you in touch with your leadership qualities.

With you feeling a little low at the start of the week you will also be annoyed with yourself for having made some firm plans. The last thing you want to do is disappoint anyone or leave them feeling as if you’ve let them down. Forcing yourself to continue with arrangements already made will be hard work but you will cope. Later, someone who holds a special corner of your heart will be determined to make a loving dream of yours come true.

Keep a watchful eye on what is going on around you. You could learn something interesting by watching the comings and goings of your neighbours and friends. Sometimes you have to be perceptive before you can plan what your next moves might be. A willingness to share equally is the best way to gain the most from your relationships now. Try to show extra understanding of your partner’s feelings. Anything you are worried about can be shared with someone you can trust.

A friend of your partner’s or someone a housemate brings home one evening may start asking you some strange and weird questions. Don’t let your suspicion show but there is something secretive in the air. You suspect someone has been making arrangements without telling you anything about them. By the end of the week the truth will come out. Your judgement will be faultless when it comes to group and social concerns.

This isn’t the time for rushing into anything. In fact, this is more a time to rein in your energy. There’s a lot of enthusiasm in the air but you need to get together with others to discuss how to approach long-term plans of a joint nature. Don’t be hesitant about expressing your true feelings. Ask plenty questions so you can be sure you understand other people’s views. When you discover many actually share your vision, this will make the future all the more delightful.

Messages received or given to the wrong person could contain information that will be useful for you to know. Even so, you need to be discreet and to keep some things to yourself. Forewarned is forearmed. Unexpected job news will give you something new to anticipate. Financially, there’s a good chance you will gain from the good fortune of others. It might be worth setting up a new savings or pension plan. A financial advisor’s recommendations are worth considering.

A project you are working on with others will have been largely your idea. Now the pressure is on to make this successful. It might be a rush against time but keep focused on your goal. Don’t lose faith in your convictions. A new friendship, work relationship or romance will bring a little sunshine into your life. Are you single? The love bug could bite in which case no immunisation will protect you from the dizzying consequences.

Patience is a virtue and a lot of patience will be needed as you wait to hear information regarding the future of a personal aim. If you pester those in the know for hints on the possible outcome, you could push them in the wrong direction. Steer clear of problems that are not of your making and of matters that should not involve you. It may be a challenge to solve other people’s dilemmas but it will also be taking you away from where you are meant to be.

Tension in the domestic circle will make you wonder whether some plans will go ahead as previously agreed. With a little effort you should be able to stop certain family members from falling out completely. This may mean putting the needs of others before your own and although this sounds unfair, the situation will only be temporary. The future will bring you your just rewards. In all areas do your best to keep the atmosphere light.

You can’t escape from a sense of responsibility to an older or younger relative. There are others, too, who should be helping but they aren’t. Eventually someone will admit to having not been as dutiful as they should have been towards the family. If there is any lingering resentment on your part you will be hiding it well. Someone will fail to get back to you with an answer to an important question. When they are ready they will be in touch but not beforehand.

You need more freedom now to pursue your own aims. A close relationship is taking up far too much of your time. If someone you recently met is more needy than you expected them to be, you have a lot of thinking to do. It might be necessary for you to avoid a friend when their presence seems to be clouding your judgement. Don’t be so hard on yourself. If you aren’t happy there is no reason why you shouldn’t consider making changes in your life to improve your situation.

A job will flow smoothly until one small mistake knocks everything for six. It will feel as if it is all falling apart but stay calm, take a deep breath and you will find a way to get back on track. Tricky tasks can be handled best early on in the week when your mind is less cluttered with emotional issues. Later a family argument will make it difficult for you to think properly. Your mood will be changeable when one moment you will be keen on social plans and the next you will prefer to stay in at home.
