Money might not be flowing as easily as it once did after Venus, your ruling planet, begins its retrograde motion in your 2nd House of Earned today.

Don’t let this be a source of stress. By stretching your existing resources as far as they will go, you can remain comfortable and secure.

Connecting with supportive friends will keep things in proper perspective. You’ve always put importance on material goods, but by talking to others who can manage to have fun regardless of how much money they have, you may learn some valuable lessons.

Some people believe that to make a point convincingly, they must speak loudly and bang a fist on a table for good measure. But there are times when actions speak louder and more effectively than words.

To show your passion or belief now requires you only to be seen to make a heartfelt, concerted effort toward what matters to you. That will be enough to reassure anyone that you mean what you say.

Your ruler, Venus, begins its six-week retrograde cycle today, dear Taurus, transiting your finance sector. During this cycle that lasts until June 25th, you’re inclined to perceive things a little differently, mainly related to finances, comfort issues, possessions and valuables, and self-worth or value.

You may be better off not making life-changing decisions related to these affairs until you’ve had a while to think things through. You might be learning to make do with less, or it may be a time for reviewing your attachments, finances, and budgeting.

These are not ideal days for buying new big-ticket items, but if you have an eye for good deals, you may find that people are parting with things they wouldn’t unload under normal conditions!

While you may not always feel confident and sure about your feelings during this cycle, it’s an excellent period for considering how your approach to attracting what you want has served you in the past, and what can improve going forward.

Money management can be a bigger topic these days, or you may be doing a waiting game with money. When this happens, you may very well discover new sources of income as you get creative about making a living.

You might feel as if you’re stuck or moving backward in spots, but it’s a fine period for collecting financial information, re-budgeting, and perhaps finding lost items. Taking extra time to figure out what it is you want is natural now, and anyone foolish enough to pressure you has their work cut out for them!

Also today, Mars begins transiting your solar eleventh house, and will continue this transit along a similar timeline as the Venus retrograde–until June 27th. This puts Mars in harmony with your sign, which can help relieve some pressure.

Today’s Quote: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.”
