This is a great day for taking some extra “me time” and pampering yourself, dear Taurus. While this morning’s energies tend to find you a little restless, it’s best to avoid the temptation to overdo or overindulge.

Others’ demands on you may feel a little excessive. Or, you may be attempting to please someone and at the same time striving for independence.

However, you’d do yourself the biggest favor by pacing yourself. Excess has a price even if the payment is deferred. You’re better off keeping things even and smooth now so that you don’t start off at a disadvantage tomorrow.

You are in the process of reinventing yourself yet you don’t want to move too fast. You have an idea in mind but no step-by-step plan yet. Unquestionably, you are committed to making the most of your life.

However, the thought of rushing ahead into uncertain situations sends you running back to the present moment. You’re not interested in wasting time on several false starts.

Your preference is to think of all the contingencies first, and then take the most reliable path to success. Orator William Jennings Bryan said, “Destiny is not a matter of chance; it’s a matter of choice.”

As you move into the final days of the year there is already a definite sense that the year you’re about to move into is very different.

While you always end and start each year with the Sun in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, with Saturn in the early days of a three year visit, this won’t end when the holiday period is over.

This is not just a phase you’re passing through but a new and more adventurous approach to life from this point on.
