Emotions continue to run high today, but there can be less pie in the sky thinking and more intensity. Watch for a suspicious or possibly even controlling attitude towards others today, dear Taurus. As well, aggressive overtones in others tend to make you want to turn in the other direction. This is the time to conserve your energy, not to waste it. Be productive, helpful, and useful. Avoid power games and those playing them.
Love relationships and money can be big conversation pieces today, dear Taurus. Emotions escalate surrounding money and ownership matters, as well as your intimate life, and you will need to be discerning regarding the information you receive now. Financial, sharing, and ownership matters are stimulated by the Lunar Eclipse that occurs very early into the day tomorrow. Now and in the coming weeks, there may be some drama with regards to a spouse’s income, or your taxes, debts, and investments. It may be time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. Announcements may be made. There can be new money coming into your life as well, or a complete shift in money sources. For now, however, reason tends to be eclipsed by emotions. Take your time when it comes to making any important decisions.
One-to one relationships, negotiations, and circumstances that urge you to strike a compromise are themes today, dear Taurus, or at least are in strong focus on an emotional level. Your best bet now is to slip into another’s shoes and work from that new “place”. Diplomacy will get you just about everywhere now. Put your own personal agenda on the back burner and pay some homage to a significant other for maximum success today. Avoid the snares of power games.
It’s a strong day for putting the pieces back together, dear Taurus. Although you may second-guess your perceptions very early today, as you move forward, you are likely to be quite productive. Fix problems that will help free your mind, as tonight, you become more emotionally geared towards relating rather than producing. You are especially sensitive to the little flaws around you, and this can inspire you to take better care of your health, or to notice little aches and pains; it can help you to see problem areas in your daily routine that require some management, or all of the problems you see can make you cranky. Your attitude is entirely up to you!
The general atmosphere of the day can be on the tense side, dear Taurus, with a few bright spots. Certainly, conflicts can serve to motivate us to take action on important matters, or can lead to other fortunate events. However, today’s energy is more about stress and tension that basically leads nowhere fast. It’s not the time to push people or situations. Focus on what you have to do and save important conversations for a better day. You can be quite productive if you keep things light and tune out distractions.
The Sun enters Gemini and your sector of finances and values today, dear Taurus, where it will stay until June 21st. Your major focus is on material affairs and comfort issues during this cycle. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. Today, you could feel blocked, as if things refuse to go your way. It’s temporary, and it forces you to review your plans and make adjustments.
There can be some side-tracking in your life these days due to a basic yearning for something more than just mundane existence, dear Taurus, and this is especially the case today and tomorrow. It’s not a bad thing to yearn for more - in fact, without dissatisfaction, progress may never be made. However, if you are doing nothing about it except nurturing restlessness and tension, then this is going to interfere with your day-to-day happiness and practical affairs. You might also be experiencing some eye-opening and frustrating differences in values with people in your life that you weren’t aware of (or annoyed by) until recently. Something from the past could suddenly emerge and cause some initial discomfort. Ultimately, you’re freeing yourself up of excess baggage. Deal with whatever emerges so that you can finally put the past behind you. Information that surfaces now tends to boost your ability to make a decision or come to a conclusion on a matter that has been in existence for some time.
It’s a good day for surprising a special someone by doing something out of the ordinary - a little change can feel like a breath of fresh air, so don’t be shy to bring one on. Avoid major decision-making when it comes to money and personal possessions today, dear Taurus, as information is likely to come to light that changes your current perspective. Negotiations are unlikely to be fruitful today as both parties may be clinging too strongly to their position.
If you can manage it, dear Taurus, quiet time spent at or close to home will satisfy you most right now, as you are in a homebody type of mood. It’s not the most courageous of times for you, but this can be considered a pleasant respite from daily challenges. Gather your thoughts, collect yourself, and get in touch with your need for security and comfort, as this will better prepare you for busier and more outgoing days to come. Later today, it’s not the best time for clear thinking, particularly surrounding financial matters. It’s hard to know what to believe, and nobody is itching to help you out in the clarity department either. Watch for all sorts of sneaky behavior, such as bluffing, with friends and lovers. Defer potentially complicated conversations to the future.
This is a time for counter-intuitive solutions, dear Taurus, and it will be necessary to think creatively now. Avoid black-or-white decision making and instead consider a problem from a number of angles. If you feel that others are holding something back from you, instead of pushing the matter, draw upon your patience and let it play out. You’ll learn more from observation than from a full-on investigation right now.
Mercury enters your solar second house today, dear Taurus, and influences this sector of your chart until the 31st. During this cycle, you are likely to be preoccupied with practical matters, including finances and business. You are more interested in seeing real, tangible results from your efforts. You might attempt to learn more in order to earn more, and you are better at strategic planning with money at this time. Today, your mood shifts from insular to outgoing by evening.
You might feel driven to get what you want today (and in general these days!), dear Taurus, but save your energy right now for the important things. Be an informed listener and soft sell your own ideas or desires today for best results. You are not typically strong in the area of multi-tasking, as you prefer to focus on one thing at a time, but today you’re expected to branch out.
Take a second look at the fine print or think twice about making a purchase today, dear Taurus, as you may not have all the facts before you. A tendency to evade questions and to avoid conflict is present now as well. If you want to keep your privacy, you might state this fact rather than distracting others, which can return to haunt you later. There may be issues with boundaries today involving friends and/or money, or there may be a disappointment as someone or something fails to live up to your expectations. Otherwise, today is strong for getting around, making contact, and getting things done.
