CELEBRITY Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, May 23.
You haven’t been happy with the way someone has been pushing things under the carpet. When you discover another batch of neglected correspondence or paperwork, this will be the straw that breaks the camel’s back. You’ll be devoting a lot of your time to catching up on neglected odds and ends. You won’t mind helping someone out when they need you but with you already having a busy schedule, you might wish they’d chosen a more convenient time to get themselves in a pickle.
You would normally choose stability and routine over change but suddenly you feel an urge to rearrange a few aspects of your life. An offer or opportunity will seem too good to miss. Others will be surprised to see you jumping in with both feet. It isn’t often you don’t think about the consequences of your actions. There are people you would rather didn’t get to hear about what you are doing. There is plenty of time to make a public announcement.
Relationships in the family are a little stressed and unpredictable right now. You just don’t know where you stand when a relative who has always been there for you suddenly withdraws their support. You’re making good progress in these challenging times but you still have a long way to go before you can shout eureka. Don’t get distracted. In order for you to achieve the success you desire, you must stay focused on your longer-term goals.
You aren’t pleased with a friend’s forgetfulness especially when they fail to remind you of something that is important to you. Still, the pleasure you get from catching up with events will soon make you forget their mistake. The end of the week brings a reckoning of sorts. If you impulsively started something you are unable to handle you may be in for a rude awakening. It will make matters worse to try to fumble your way through something you aren’t sure about.
There could be serious consequences if you go against the directions of a legal or official entity. All the same, you should not be expected to do anything that goes against your conscience even if this does mean stirring up the wrath of the powers that be. If someone owes you money or you’re waiting for a grant or some other legal payment, you will not have much longer to wait. In important discussions, stick to the facts and refuse to budge.
You long to get away from it all but you’ve got too much to do. Some good news concerning a secret wish will lift your spirits. A job offer or creative opportunity will give you something exciting to look forward to in times to come. Use your natural common sense to deal with an unexpected problem. Someone who was trusted with an important responsibility isn’t up to the job. You could and should give them some practical help.
Joint finances will be a focus of your thoughts making it hard to sleep at night. After reviewing where you went wrong, you might decide you are under insured or you are paying out on something that hasn’t any worth or value. You want to feel useful and that’s why you aren’t planning on wasting any time doing nothing. You’re thinking of the future, planning ahead and finding ways to inspire others to work towards a special goal.
The wise advice and support of an older relative will be particularly helpful if you are learning new inter-personal skills or hoping to develop your talents. Their faith in you will give you the confidence you need to move a decision forward. Any attempts to broaden your experience through learning, training or study will bring profound satisfaction. Burning the candle at both ends will take a toll on your health. Eat nutritious food and get more rest.
Background developments will bring some tension. There is a lot of gossip in the air. If what people are saying is true, this could mean it’s time to make some changes. There are times when you respect the need for confidentiality. You also like everything to be open and above board. If you sense there’s something secret going on that everyone should know about you won’t stop in your effort to discover the true facts.
The helpfulness and generosity of a new friend or neighbour might come as some surprise. It’s not often you’re on the receiving end of such kindness. If you’re single, it will be qualities such as loyalty and compassion that mean more to you than how much money a potential partner makes. A family matter is making you nervous. If you’re worried about an older relative’s extravagance, spill out what is on your mind.
You aren’t happy with a situation that is causing a lot of contention. It’s going to get worse unless someone steps in and eases the tension. Although you can see this argument from both sides it’s important to be objective when encouraging two warring parties to resolve their differences. When you are tied up with social and work matters you might forget to inform your partner of a change of plans. Once your schedule is clear, make them your priority.
A relative will step in and help you out of a dilemma. They could have told you that you’ve made your bed and now you should lie in it but that isn’t their way. You will be grateful for their help and because they aren’t reminding you that they told you so, you can learn a lot from their example. You crave travel and long to explore unfamiliar territory. If you can’t get away, which you probably can’t, booking a weekend break for later in the year will give you a pleasant change to look forward to.
