Celebrity Bucks resident Russell Grant’s weekly Bucks Free Press horoscope from Saturday, May 14:

A friend or colleague needs some compassionate and understanding guidance. You know what they are going through. You have lived this with them and can put yourself in their shoes. Emotions are raw. Compliments and cuddles will help others feel loved and needed. A request from a relative will need some further consideration. You will want to do what is best for everyone. It's a good time to develop your spirituality and for quiet thought and contemplation.

Big changes are ahead. This could take you away from all that is familiar. Starting a new life can be nerve wracking for you but the sooner you accept how it has to be, the quicker you will adjust to new circumstances. There are others going through this with you and the emotional support this provides will be priceless. When everyone puts their mind to it in a group situation, good progress will be made. Someone in power will offer their full and unconditional support.

You're hopeful and optimistic that something real will come out of a campaign you are supporting. You won't give up your support until changes are made. Someone you are dealing with can charm the hind legs off a donkey. It won't be easy to distinguish between truth and fiction and further research will be required. If you are still left feeling confused by the end of the week, don't dismiss the idea of talking to a professional.

You're inclined to turn down an invitation to a party or social gathering. This would give you a chance to talk to people you haven't seen for some time and it will feel good to get together again. You may need to find someone who shares your long-term aims as a joint effort will be more successful than a solo one. Your boss or a senior colleague will support your ideas and this should help strengthen your position.

There's a lot of work to be done. Even so, don't use this as an excuse to cut yourself off from your family and friends. Find a balance between work and play. A new romance may not be as warm or loving as you had expected but it's not going to be very successful if you don't have much time for it. A long-term partner expects to enjoy your company in the weekend. Don't let them down or they will find companionship elsewhere.

A quiet spell as the week begins is your chance to check goals you are working towards are still important to you. If not, make any changes you feel are necessary to bring you greater happiness and fulfilment. Taking on new responsibilities or applying for a new job will feel rewarding. You are making an effort to improve your life and your career. A group project will be fulfilling especially if you get involved from the start.

Friends will not take a lot of persuading to join in with your ideas. They know they will have a good time. In fact, it won't be long before you will be reminding yourself of how having fun together helps revive relationships. Good news around Wednesday will give you something to celebrate. All your wishes will seem to have come true as a tidy sum is received to enable you to afford luxuries you have always dreamed of.

It can sometimes feel as if it is taking you twice as long or twice the effort to get results compared with how you worked in the past. You will not want to fail and you may not have realised the standards you set yourself keep getting higher. Perseverance will always be necessary for you to achieve. Relationships are harmonious because you are keeping thoughts to yourself if these might upset other people.

You're confronted with a number of choices. It will feel as if these are being thrown at you from a few different directions. It will be hard to keep up with it all. Even if some hold a degree of risk you might decide it's worth taking chances. Luck seems to be on your side when things regularly go your way. Trust your intuition. It will lead you in the best direction. The latter half of the week will be quieter than earlier.

For a few more days there will be more of what you have already been experiencing: lots of activity and little time to yourself. Be prepared to continue a short while longer on matters that have kept you busy since the month began. They may be growing monotonous but to turn your back on them now would make you feel a failure. There will be moments later on when you just won't feel happy until you can shut the door on the world.

Delaying arrangements to offer a little help to a friend might upset some people but you know there is nothing to worry about. This isn't going to cause a problem. As it is, it will be left up to you what you do, when you do it and how. Since you enjoy the freedom of making your own choices, this will suit you down to the ground. If your intuition is telling you someone isn't being honest where money is concerned, trust your instincts.

Relationships and events will be somewhat unpredictable early on. By Wednesday you will find it easier to get into the swing of things. No matter what chores or tasks might await you then, you will feel ready to take them on and complete them. Are you single? You might get talking to someone in a queue or while travelling on public transport. This could be the first cautious step towards a rewarding romance.
