A Mercury-Mars quincunx active today can generate some impatience or carelessness, dear Taurus, as someone may challenge your ideas.

It’s better not to take it too personally. Alternatively, the contrast is sharp between your need for familiarity and the allure of the new and unexplored.

It can be challenging to decide on any one thing without feeling like you’re missing out somewhere else. Even so, this week brings solid energy, as Pluto and Chiron connect, for finding ways to satisfy both your need for new experiences and your desire to lay low and regenerate.

This might mean a restful journey or new activity that refreshes you. Tonight, Mercury enters your solar fifth house and, going forward, there’s a distinct mental or verbal element to your creative and romantic worlds.

In strong focus now are activities through which you can have fun, impress, create, and share. Others tend to respond well to your ideas during this cycle that lasts until the 21st.

Civil discourse seems to be an increasingly elusive gem. An insensitive family member or friend might nitpick at one of your prized philosophies today.

They chisel away at your courage unaware, and you cannot quite find the right words to counteract it. It’s unlikely anyone is doing this to hurt you; they simply don’t realize the consequences of their words.

Stay true to yourself and forgo this battle. Everyone will quickly move on to other topics. Your position is solid whenever you take the high road.

Having the Moon in your communication sector is an advantage for Mercury, with the planet of communication on the move today.

Whether it is during his final hours in your home and family sector or as he shifts to focus more on giving your heart a voice, having the Moon on hand is an advantage.

Whether giving your heart a voice or ensuring the communication lines are open on the home front, this is a chance to give your emotional responses a voice.
