Your ruler, Venus, aligns with energetic Mars in your romance and creativity sector today, dear Taurus, exciting your senses. Things can feel quite urgent and extreme, and you may want to watch for impulsive tendencies.

If you’ve been working up the courage to do something, on the other hand, you might take an important step today. You are on fire in the personal appeal department. You are especially aware of–and awake to–the world around you.

There can be excitement related to a creative project, hobby, or a relationship. It’s an excellent time to bring a more lively spirit to a relationship or an enterprising quality to a project. You or your creations are standing out.

Do watch for a tendency to stir the pot in your conversations, however. A Mercury-Pluto aspect also active today can lead to a foot in the mouth or a reveal that was not your intention.

Your self-confidence raises your standards when you recognize your true worth. Make connections with emotional allies who want to meet you on a meaningful level.

Enjoy sizzling encounters as the temperatures rise and pamper yourself to feel like a million bucks. Sparks could fly with an acquaintance; pump the breaks and pace yourself.

Create a picture of your ideal future and take things one day at a time. The more you value yourself, the more you magnetize others who want to share in your joy. The universe works fast when you’re having fun.

Just having the Sun, Venus, Mars and Juno spending their first weekend in a playful part of your chart almost makes it mandatory to embrace the weekend spirit.

With Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion aligned, this is fuelling Venus’ romantic focus and Mars’ romantic and creative passions.

The Sun might turn the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative at this time every year, rarely does he arrive with an army of support.

In the meantime, Mercury is making this an important day and weekend for having your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open on the home front.

Today’s Quote: “The only way to get through life is to laugh your way through it. You either have to laugh or cry. I prefer to laugh. Crying gives me a headache.”
