An influence beginning now and lasting until September is particularly beneficial for your close relationships, dear Taurus. Now and in the months ahead you’ll be learning to understand a significant other’s differing viewpoints or customs.

There can be rewarding travel, education, or publishing that positively impacts a current relationship or that brings a new connection into your life. This can be an essential time for purging some of the beliefs or attitudes that no longer work for you or that have been holding you back, and this process may be prompted or motivated by a person in your life or a relationship itself.

There can be a wonderful exposure to a new perspective, lifestyle, or culture that expands your mind and opens your heart. Some of you may publish a creative work and meet with reward and success during this period. Today, aim to wind down and reflect, as a New Moon will occur tomorrow and prompt a new beginning or direction.

This is a critical day in the process of making your dreams come true. You have an opportunity to share your plans with others today, and what you say might have more influence on your success than you realize.

It’s as if someone is waiting in the wings to support your efforts and their involvement could streamline your advancement. But assistance will not be offered unless you can demonstrate your ability to follow through with your ideas.

A long lead up to tomorrow’s New Moon in an adventurous part of your chart, is giving you plenty of time to tap into all the very different factions in play.

Venus, in her final days in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, wants you to follow your heart and embrace a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure now. Yet Saturn, here for the next three years, wants to turn life into your school and a journey in its own right.
