If you feel somewhat down on yourself today, look for ways in which your worldview may have grown rigid, static, or outworn.

Human beings are funny in that we struggle and strive to get it all figured out, but when we finally feel like we have done so, life becomes boring, stifling, and irritating.

Look for new ways to reanimate your work projects and expand your horizons, for if you cling too much to routine out of a need for security, resentment may fester on unconscious levels.

Some of the world’s greatest inventors were ridiculed and not without a good reason. There was Benjamin Franklin, who found ways to create and harness electricity, outside in a thunderstorm flying a kite with a metal key attached to it.

Fortunately, he lived to tell the tale but he certainly appeared to possess more than one ludicrous notion. Even if something that inspires you doesn’t make sense to others, trust that you too could be ‘a genius at work.’

With the Moon continuing its transit of your solar sixth house part of the day, dear Taurus, you’re particularly attuned to imbalances and flaws around you. Ideally, frustration with these things fuels your motivation to come up with workable solutions.

However, a Sun-Mars challenge suggests some impatience. If you’re returning to a problem, it’s probably for a reason, but if answers are not evident, be patient with yourself.

Part of you is especially focused on the past or your inner world, and you’re not always emotionally present, which can lead to conflicts or misunderstandings. The Moon moves into Scorpio, your opposite sign, later today, and this tends to turn your attention to close relationships.

Today’s Quote: “It’s not that we have to quit this life one day, it’s how many things we have to quit all at once: holding hands, hotel rooms, music, the physics of falling leaves, vanilla and jasmine, poppies, smiling, anthills, the color of the sky, coffee and cashmere, literature, sparks and subway trains… If only one could leave this life slowly!”
