The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Taurus, enlivening your emotions. Your focus is on self-improvement now.

Emotions are loud and clear, and they more readily find a vehicle for expression. This is a time for acknowledging feelings that you may have set aside recently, but the energies of the day favor channeling emotions in constructive, helpful ways.

Your intuitive, compassionate side is emphasized and draws up to the surface later today, and with a new and perhaps more forgiving and kinder look at situations and people in your life, you’re likely to arrive at a nice feeling of peace or freedom.

You might enjoy coming to someone’s aid or otherwise offering a hand.

Let your shrewd instincts work for you if you’re trying to get ahead at work, at school, or in sports. Don’t downplay or deny the kind of competitive spirit that can serve you so well if properly acknowledged and nurtured.

Once you know the ropes, it’s an easy feat to swing into action that’s sure to attract positive attention.

There’s no need to be shy when you’re ready to go all out and shine. Others will appreciate and admire your initiative, but more importantly, you’ll thank yourself.

The Moon’s first visit to Taurus for the year is always a valuable chance to get your bearings, especially if the holiday period has thrown out your normal routine.

This is a chance to put your antennas up and get a feel for the new year and what might be on your over the horizon radar.

And that is what makes this visit so different, for there is a real sense of excitement and anticipation in the air. For just over the horizon Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos is making his way to Taurus.

Today’s Quote: “I think it’s important to get your surroundings as well as yourself into a positive state – meaning surround yourself with positive people, not the kind who are negative and jealous of everything you do.”
