There can be some tendency to dwell on resentments or communications that rub you the wrong way, dear Taurus, with a Mercury-Saturn square active now. Once beyond that, you can be quite productive if you have something that captures your interest.

Still, energies of the day can bring out self-protectiveness, and there can be transportation or mechanical breakdowns and possibly missed connections to deal with. Make an extra effort to get over the smaller problems and challenges, as irritating as they are likely to be.

Aim to be patient if you’re feeling blocked, as inspiration will return shortly. Getting back on track can be a priority now, and can help free you up for more enjoyable activities later.

Also today, you may very well come across something that jogs your memory of an old relationship or problem area and you can have an “a-ha” moment that helps you out. There can be opportunities emerging now to heal or help others deal with complicated emotions.

Your pragmatic nature is at odds with your dreams today. You want your spiritual pursuits to have a practical influence in your life by making the world a more beautiful place.

However, you’re unwilling to set your immediate situation aside while seeking happiness in the future.

Thankfully, when you can mix the ideal and the real, your natural vitality is energized and even your most ordinary statements are dressed in poetry. Never lose your sense of wonder.

The next few days and in fact right through to the New Moon in Taurus over the weekend, there is a need to make time to hear yourself think. There is a surprising lack of urgency in the early weeks of your birthday month and new solar year, giving you more time to consider your options.

For now, with Venus and Mercury still in a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart you, there is something holding you back and this works to your advantage. This is also a chance to enjoy your birthday month without getting too far out in front of your skis.
