Reflections of Taurus Season

The final day of Taurus season brings quiet moments of reflection. May we find clarity and peace, knowing that each day is a blank page waiting for our unique imprint. Our lives are our masterpieces, every page a development. It doesn’t have to be positive to be good — in fact, the best stories are about people of passion making their way through mess after mess.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It feels honorable to abide by limits you set for yourself, but there’s a full range of emotions that could come from abiding by limits set by another. Make sure you know your own reasons before you enter into this dynamic.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Avoid gambling of all forms today, not because the cosmic omens portend a loss but because they indicate overconfidence, which in many ways is more dangerous. It sets you up for outsize potentials.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). Being a generous person, it feels unkind to hear someone’s proposal and jump straight to ask, “What’s in it for me?” It would be worse to proceed half-heartedly, without the gumption to follow through, so definitely put your interests front of mind today.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll plan ahead and save money because of it. It is also possible that buying ahead can have you spending needlessly, though, if you are not well informed on your subject. Do research, and if you’re not sure, wait.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You have so much to gain that it’s worth the risk of rejection. In fact, you’ll keep putting yourself in a position to hear the word “no” because after the first time, it really doesn’t hurt anymore.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). It’s the ideal time to break away, get autonomy, assemble your crew, and determine the schedule based on your own needs. You did what they wanted last time — and the time before, and the time before that. It’s your turn to do it your way.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You will notice the same kind of change that had you trembling in fear a year ago now seems to excite and motivate you. This evidence of the strength you’ve developed is truly something to celebrate.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone is expecting something so unreasonable from you, it’s a setup for letdown. Most likely, the expectant one is you. When you give yourself the grace of doable goals, you also get the opportunity to exceed your own expectations.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). A supersize challenge beckons. Approach as separate individuals and it’s insurmountable. Bond together with one intent and the mountain will shrink against the joint effort, then become a hill, mound, mere pile, until it diminishes into flatlands.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’ll get puzzled looks. You’ll field questions you can’t answer. The moral of the story is there’s no story — not yet — just speculation. Reject the pressure to make one up. Wait until the truth rides in.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your compassion will have you holding back in some way. Maybe it’s an opinion you won’t share, or a correction of some sort. You’ll never be sorry you led with this part of yourself. Even when it loses, kindness wins.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you try to stop what’s in motion by meeting it directly and pushing back, you just might sprain a wrist. Try a side step or a move that will redirect what’s coming at you. All energy goes somewhere. Can this be dispersed?

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 19). Like a well-crafted story, life will be lush with twists and turns, challenges and triumphs. You’ll embrace each chapter with courage and curiosity, for it is in these moments that you truly discover your talents. More highlights: a favor returned with so much extra, you can make a dream come true on the interest. Travel and transportation upgrades. Sagittarius and Capricorn adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 2, 22, 1, 19 and 31.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: The legacy of Malcolm X continues to inspire generations of activists seeking social justice and equality. Born Malcolm Little, he later adopted the surname “X” to represent his lost African ancestral name. The civil rights leader was born under a tenacious Taurus sun and a fiery Aries moon. Aries moon people have the spirit and boldness of warriors. “Every defeat, every heartbreak, every loss contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time.” — Malcolm X
