You could be quite excited to move a personal interest forward, dear Taurus, but a delay or slowdown may seem forced on you now. With a Mars-Saturn aspect active today, the more you push, the more resistance you meet.

A discouraging remark or criticism might throw off your thinking, or an obstacle can appear, slowing you down. Watch for focusing on the short term rather than the big picture.

If you feel hemmed in or stifled from expressing yourself, consider that the actions you take to correct things may very well redirect your attention to essential details. Or, slowing down helps you center yourself.

Scattering your energy is not the answer since you may end up doing many things, but none of them especially well. However, you could feel quite inspired by collaboration. Someone may encourage you to pursue a dream.

Raising the volume of your voice isn’t an effective means for making your audience listen to your message. In fact, a shouting match only agitates everyone’s nerves. Perhaps someone refuses to heed reason on an issue, or they sense you are unwilling to budge.

It’s irrelevant who is right if you’re not stopping to hear each other out today. As you cool off and calm down, be mindful that progress rarely happens as fast as you want, and no rule or structure is meant to last forever. Practicing mutual respect paves the path to a peaceful middle ground.

An opposition between Mars and Saturn that has been building for weeks now has finally come to a head, with the Moon providing the right solution.

Mars is moving through your communication sector, where he needs an outlet or the pressure from Saturn could see you blowing your top and losing your cool.

As the Moon wraps up its monthly visit to your relationship sector there are a lot of strong emotional responses that could see the dam burst. It needs to, for this is what will release the pressure.

Today’s Quote: “Attitude is a choice. Happiness is a choice. Optimism is a choice. Kindness is a choice. Giving is a choice. Respect is a choice. Whatever choice you make makes you. Choose wisely.”
