There is some tendency to close up or withdraw today, dear Taurus, making it better to work on your own just until you’re more self-assured. There can be a conflict between your indulgent side and your responsible side, with neither coming out a clear winner!

As the day advances, things flow, particularly on mental and emotional levels. You might sort matters out in your mind or with someone special and get to happy places and conclusions.

An open-handed approach to domestic issues, sharing, finances, and intimacy is the most successful, and there is a tendency to focus on the most supportive, positive, and hopeful scenarios.

People tend to cooperate with you, and family or intimate relationships can improve simply through connecting, reaching out, sharing good humor and anecdotes, and extending help or support.

Family or co-workers can be cooperative and possibly quite helpful in terms of bringing new insight into your life. Cooperation with others helps fuel your motivation.

A sharp-eyed reality check can interrupt your wild fantasies. Before decisively stepping forward, make sure you’re not taking any shortcuts. Call a time-out and dive deep into your psyche.

Examine your expectations with a magnifying glass. You may be dancing with fantasy or allowing the fear of rejection to shut you down. Power struggles and personal agendas can materialize, so watch what you say online and in real life.

Although feedback is nice, you’re free to keep your ideas to yourself today. Regardless of your busy schedule, grab a moment to recalibrate and stay on track.

Before joining Mars in the most fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart today, Venus is making the most of her final hours focused on home and family matters.

Having spent the whole of last week aligned with the Sun here, Venus is spending her final hours aligned with Juno, queen of commitment. This is a chance to turn Venus’ desires and expectations into firm resolutions, while tapping into a sense of resolve.

Today’s Quote: “Above all, don’t lie to yourself. The man who lies to himself and listens to his own lie comes to a point that he cannot distinguish the truth within him, or around him, and so loses all respect for himself and for others. And having no respect he ceases to love.”
