You’re in a good position to let go of grudges in the first half of the day, dear Taurus, or to connect well with friends, and come up with good ideas for handling your money or valuables. You seem to be able to satisfy both your needs to play it safe and venture out into new situations.

This is an important day for entertaining new ideas and seeking out more meaning from your experiences. You can be thoroughly invested in a project, study, or venture, and you can make tremendous progress with this kind of dedication and focus.

Later today, sensitive topics are likely to emerge, or something you hear or say hits a nerve. It may not be intentional, but the result is the same, and while a part of you wants to ignore it and move on, another part of you (or a person in your life) won’t let it go. In truth, addressing the issue can work in your favor.

Studying a problem and examining all sides of an issue can be an exhausting process. You could end up spinning your wheels and growing frustrated over your lack of progress, but your due diligence isn’t in vain.

Think of your efforts as seeds that are beginning to take root now. Soon enough you will see the fruit of your labor. Be gentle with yourself and stop trying to figure out everything all at once. Rest is essential for optimum mental clarity. Let yourself off the hook for being human like everyone else.

In her last full day in Taurus, Venus is working to leave you with a sense of what you want from the coming year. Whether it feels more like wishful thinking or a pipedream, dare to aim high and raise the bar in order to expect more.

It was this time last week that the Moon was making its only visit to Taurus while Venus is here and while she leaves tomorrow, the Moon will return every four weeks.

Today is all about listening to your heart and instincts, as it has been all week. Tomorrow Venus will join the Sun in order to bring things home on the income front.

Today’s Quote: “Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who are patient, and the best things come to those who don’t give up.”
