CELEBRITY Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, August 24:


If anything in the romantic or social side of your life is set to happen, it will do so soon. If you’re thinking of going public with an idea, it will be important to get the timing right. You will intuitively know when to make your move. In the meantime, continue to offer support from behind the scenes. You’re in the mood to do something impulsive and may even surprise your partner by booking a romantic holiday or enchanted cruise.


Your mind is overflowing with exciting ideas. Share these with your friends and they will be keen to support you. It will take time before you see results of projects begun now. Laying the groundwork and creating solid foundations will save you a lot of effort in time to come. A happy phone call, email or text message will make your heart skip a beat. A raise or a promotion will make you feel like you’re walking on air.


A risk needs to be taken but something is making you hold back. Are you dwelling on past disappointments or a fear of failure? You might wonder if you have it within you to succeed. You will never know unless you try. Jobs about the house that you volunteer to help with might seem like a bigger challenge than expected. Use your head and pace yourself sensibly and you will achieve what you set out to do.


Romantic prospects take on a progressive and optimistic glow. A long held wish could soon come true. Are you single? New activities will introduce you to new faces both at work and in your social life. Out of these, you will make some good friends. Creative projects help you express some deep emotions. Your dreams too, are a source of artistic inspiration. It will be fun to recycle an item that can be updated in a clever way.


Some people are shy about putting their ideas forward. Taking the initiative will earn you big points with your boss. Don’t be surprised if you are offered a promotion or high profile job. Discussing your hopes and dreams with someone you love could lead to some exciting changes. Don’t fight the transition that is happening now as you will look back and know that this was meant to be.


It’s a good time for new beginnings linked with your home and family. Whether you are thinking about moving to a new place, renovating your home or planning to start a family, you are ready to turn ideas into reality. A nasty piece of gossip is circulating at work. Angry people are capable of spreading spiteful rumours. Keep anyone who is known to be a gossip at arm’s length and keep your thoughts to yourself.


You might surprise your friends and family with your enthusiasm to try something new. You will be pouring energy and resources into everything you do and that’s because you are choosing to focus on projects that are meaningful to you. Your flexible and fun loving nature makes you the most popular person in town. If you’re single and looking for love, head out for a night out clubbing, partying or dining.


Give some thought to new financial arrangements. A partner will have some useful suggestions. They aren’t expecting an instant response and they will understand if you ask to look around for better deals. Someone is grateful for a kindness you performed on their behalf. Being polite and gracious will attract good fortune, especially financial. A senior colleague could recommend you for a raise or promotion. A job offer will make you smile.


A journey could be the natural consequences of a newly begun hobby. You might suggest taking your partner or a special friend along for the ride. Don’t let small inconveniences keep you from exploring new places. Romance holds some exciting possibilities. This could include a love at first sight encounter but play a waiting game. Will you still feel the same this time next month? Curb your restless energy. An impulsive person like you needs to protect your heart.


Nothing is harder than trying to get the job done when you are exhausted. If nothing is going right for you, shrug your shoulders and admit that you need a break. You might also start looking for a job that gives you more time to spend with your family and friends. Being in strange places makes you uncomfortable. Although you aren’t at ease when surrounded by strangers, try to return a glare with a smile.


Changes occurring now will take some getting used to but you know in your heart they will be for the best. If some things aren’t moving as quickly as you’d like, one way to make progress is to ask for help from your friends. One task in particular was never meant to be a solo project so it makes sense to ask for support. You’ve got a talent for transforming old objects into something quite stunning. It’s a good week for making money out of old rope.


You’re trying to stay on the right side of your boss which isn’t easy. A colleague likes to waste time on meetings that go nowhere. Even if you’re crying from boredom on the inside, people will be impressed if you look as if you’re interested. An extra dose of romance will make the week special. If you’re single, an old flame will come back into your life and you’ll both agree to give this relationship another chance.
