CELEBRITY Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, October 5:


A group of people you are working with seem to have lost their motivation. You are a natural leader and can think of a few ways to get them moving. A dull project can be made more interesting once you put your ideas to work. You are an inspiration to everyone. Luck will come through a partnership or close friendship. New opportunities will arise through taking a look at what other people are involved in.


A problem that surfaces early on will not be the obstacle everyone thought it would be. You will quickly find a way to resolve this matter. A positive, supportive atmosphere will enhance communication and bring greater harmony. Your personal life seems set for a major overhaul. Although you dislike change, this will be for the better. You will feel more in control of your relationships and your surroundings, as a result. So, go with the flow.


Your mind is not really on what you are doing. Because of this, the chances of you giving priority to the wrong things are high. It would be wise to listen to the suggestions of a practical friend. If you’re feeling irritable and grumpy, don’t take it out on your loved ones. They won’t take too kindly to any words of criticism and you shouldn’t be surprised by their heated response. Keep to yourself until you feel more cheerful.


A team effort will move forward faster than you expected. In some strange way this will work to your advantage so don’t let this knock you off balance. Even if you’re worrying about having to take on new obligations, look on this as a positive opportunity. Don’t go all negative on people now. A positive trend will be with you from Wednesday onwards. You won’t come across any spectacular good fortune but things are starting to look up for you.


You’re full of optimism and excitement for a new project. For a time all will go according to plan. The impetus may start to pale after a while due to the dictatorial attitude of an authority figure. Stay calm. You can do this and get through it, despite a minor inconvenience. Plans that are discussed later could mean you will be selling property or moving home. You’re likely to choose a destination that is peaceful and quiet.


A little light flirtation at a party or social event will not be as harmless as you thought. It may have seemed a fun challenge to get an aloof person to warm to you. Once you achieve this, you will be left with the dilemma of how to explain to your partner that you were only having fun. If you have excess energy, channel it positively through exercise or by doing something practical and creative. Take on work that allows you to use your imagination.


A joint arrangement has run its course. You know that continuing with this is a waste of time and energy and it would be foolish to give it any more of your time. Besides, the longer this goes on, the longer you will have to wait to get started on other plans. You’ve been working hard and you deserve to take a break. Make the most of any chance that comes your way later in the week to relax.


You aren’t going to agree with everyone all the time. Provided you don’t make too heavy weather over a small misunderstanding on Monday, you should reap the benefits of a team effort by Friday. You may not have expected to spend so much time with your partner or a close friend. Since you seem to be together more than usual, you might find the courage to bring up a matter that has recently been on your mind.


Although you’re tempted to rush into things, give yourself a chance to think through all aspects and possible repercussions of new moves and arrangements. A workmate will not realise how much they have revealed through asking for some advice. You now have some useful information that will help you make an important decision. Keep your wits about you and you will be able to make the most of an opportunity you could easily have missed.


A special relationship is about to begin so don’t snub the advances of someone you have yet to grow to know. A new friendship could put you on the path to luck and prosperity. At times, this week, you might feel as if you are floating in a dream. There is a need to be with people but you also want to be alone. A sea of tranquillity will float you into a near perfect weekend of relaxation.


There is no way anyone is going to succeed in turning you into something you don’t want to be. If a partner is trying to change you, they may not be the right person for you. If they don’t agree with your views or share your interests, that’s too bad. Business decisions will be made at high speed and a new project will be set underway with great efficiency. Growing this project makes you excited to go into work each day.


You want to get jobs that have been weighing on your mind out of the way but other people have other ideas. Because you hate contention, you’re inclined to fall in with the wishes of friends or workmates who expect different things from you. For once: insist on doing things your way. If you’re thinking of teaming up with someone new, whether in business or romantically, be sure to set a few ground rules from the start. This will help avoid future misunderstanding.
