While you may want to make big changes to perceived personal flaws, you first have to see yourself for who you really are. That can be hard to do accurately.

Try to think about the way you look at strangers. How would you look when seen through that lens? You might not be as judgmental of another person as you are of your own issues! When you realize you don’t have to be so hard on yourself, it may make it easier to change.

Where you might believe you’ve something to prove, that may be unnecessary. You have, in some way, gained the credibility or recognition you need.

Consequently, you can reduce the number of responsibilities and obligations that seem to grow in size. You can probably win someone – or others – over by giving them a chance to connect with what you can do. In time, they will.

Jupiter currently encourages you to reach a little further with goal-setting or involving your career, dear Taurus. These days, the Sun wants you to shine in your personal life and with family or the home.

As much as you’d like to “go hard” in both areas, you realize that you won’t do either well if you exhaust yourself. Similarly, if you’ve expected too much from a project or venture, it is time to make some adjustments as the Sun faces off with Jupiter.

If you’ve been overshooting or expecting too much from yourself, you’re now ready to restore some balance. The Sun’s opposition to Jupiter has a way of establishing a turning point.

Putting pressure on yourself to reach great heights in a short amount of time will defeat the purpose, which is happiness. Also today, Uranus stations and turns retrograde.

This yearly five-month retrograde cycle turns some things inward as you get in touch with what drives you, particularly if you’ve been feeling restless or on edge.

Examine which fears or attitudes have limited your independence and personal truth. Plans can go on hold or slow down, whether due to circumstances or because you are not quick to make changes or take personal risks.

Today’s Quote: “The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”
