The first half of the day is better for reflection than decisive action, dear Taurus. A Venus-Saturn square points to some uneasiness, and criticism or a fear of criticism can lead to defensiveness.

People may not be lending you their support at the moment. There might also be some uncertainty about someone’s feelings towards you. Relationships, finances, and career-related matters are complicated today, and it may be difficult to state what you need directly.

Look for the lesson if things are slowing down, reaching a speedbump, or not going as planned. As the day advances, you worry less about problems and instead easily sniff out opportunities.

This is an excellent time for generating ideas or for developing a spark of interest in a new topic.

Your steady nature makes overreacting a rare occurrence, and you’re not likely to make a scene now. Your finely tuned reactions can see you through even the most complicated social scene today.

Set an example of thoughtfulness and deliberation that you hope others will follow; but whether they do or they don’t, your own behavior isn’t dependent upon the crowd.

Claim your calm, cool, and collected emotional tempo and put it to work for you. Don’t let people pull you into their storm; pull them into your peace.

Just three days after the weekend’s New Moon in Taurus, Mercury’s return yesterday brings you to a point where you are able to focus on the specifics.

The weekend’s New Moon was chance to take a blanket approach to committing to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, waiting for Mercury’s return to focus on the ‘when, where and how’.

Here for just two weeks and leaving during the final hours of your birthday month, Mercury brings you to the point where you can start working on a game plan and resolutions.

Today’s Quote: “Do not let the memories of your past limit the potential of your future. There are no limits to what you can achieve on your journey through life, except in your mind.”
