You are constantly in your own way today as you try very hard to make everything work out perfectly, yet somehow continually give off the wrong impression.

Attempts to assert yourself powerfully may get bungled and unfold awkwardly, even as you are careful to plan out every last detail.

Try to avoid feeling like a martyr and know that, even if it seems like the problem is that everyone else is against you, it is actually you who needs to have your own back more fully.

Even someone you believe to be negative can have numerous positive qualities.

Apply some careful consideration before drawing any conclusions about who you believe to be a positive or negative influence. If you look for what’s positive in others, then you’ll find such qualities with ease.

Pressures might continue early today, forcing an issue, dear Taurus, as Mercury and Mars form an opposition and bring a matter of tension or frustration to a head.

Work, responsibilities, and service can be in focus. As you are likely to feel especially sensitive to imbalances of power today, it’s best to be more mindful of situations that are potentially very tricky or competitive.

If you push too hard, you seem to lose out. There can be a lot of uncertainty or vagueness to manage, which can be especially frustrating if you’re seeking solid answers.

It’s easier to enjoy others without all the drama and disagreement later today. When tensions subside, you might think up strategies for reducing stress or dealing with problem areas so that they don’t fester. Your independent spirit comes full bloom.

Today’s Quote: “Don’t be in such a rush to reach a goal, that you reach the goal before you are ready. Sometimes, we learn such valuable lessons along the way. Sometimes, we learn more about ourselves and discover that we actually want something different. Put your heart into what you do, but don’t rush. Good things take time.”
