Resist the urge to go against the grain today. Sticking to the status quo will allow you to make progress with cautious, conservative types who can advance your agenda.

It’s smart to join forces with individuals who are coming from a different perspective. They have methods, skills, and contacts you need for professional and personal advancement.

Don’t forget to send a thank-you to anyone who goes the extra mile for you. An attitude of gratitude will not only strengthen these relationships, it will attract abundance in all forms.

When we believe we’re right and others are wrong, we can be seen as stubborn or unhelpful. We can even be seen as conceited or arrogant.

But when we’re dealing with individuals who seem to think they know what’s best for us or have all the answers about something we should do, then who is conceited or arrogant?

You may have had enough of others’ words and want to see some action. That’s the first step to making clear that you know what’s best for you.

The Moon spends all day in your communications sector, dear Taurus, and you tend to seek out extra mental stimulation and variety.

Fortunately, transits today keep you happily busy, interested, and engaged. Your ideas are particularly creative. Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle today.

While Uranus was direct and in your sign in recent months, confidence in your pursuit of new experiences and expression of your independence has been evident.

With Uranus now retrograde until January, more is going on inside you than on the surface. Use this time to get in touch with what drives you, particularly if you’ve been feeling restless or on edge.

Examine which fears or attitudes have been limiting your independence and personal truth. Plans may be put on hold or could slow down, whether this is due to circumstances or because you are not as quick to make changes or take personal risks.

Today, you might especially enjoy drawing up plans, particularly related to happiness goals. You may be able to put more energy into a group or team effort or to help others.

Today’s Quote: “One, remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Two, never give up work. Work gives you meaning and purpose and life is empty without it. Three, if you are lucky enough to find love, remember it is there and don’t throw it away.”
