New ideas and promises today may not have much permanency, dear Taurus, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a good time considering different possibilities.

Your focus can be diffused, so it’s not an ideal time to make serious decisions or to do important fact-based work. You might have a hard time doing what you want perhaps because people who need help or support are taking priority.

There is a tendency today for people to resort to roundabout methods to get their way, and this can be frustrating. There may be some confusion about a friendship or group alliance as the day advances, but if you’re open to learning from others and your experiences, it’s a fabulous time for understanding and accepting differences, and getting to a better headspace for doing so. You’re heading towards a fine couple of days for clarity and commitment.

You are so concerned with losing control that you could hold the steering wheel too tightly today. Every subtle nuance of emotion is recorded in your body, increasing your fear and setting you up to overreact.

You must loosen your grip and lighten your attitude now or your extreme reactions could invite unwanted trouble. Carlos Barrios wrote, “Flexibility makes buildings to be stronger; imagine what it can do to your soul.”

As the Sun and Saturn both spend their first weekend in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery, they have very different agendas or timeframes to work with. The Sun, here for just a month, is playing a short game while Saturn, here until 2020, is playing a long game.

Saturn is looking at what you are able to achieve and experience from life over the next three years, whereas the Sun is looking at the small steps you can take now. Start with embracing the weekend and the holiday spirit.
