Being different from everyone else doesn’t bother you a bit. You have the courage of your convictions and may live a life that goes against social convention.

This is one of the things your friends admire most about you; just being in your presence gives them the courage to become more authentic, pursuing work and relationships that resonate with their true desires.

It’s possible one of your loved ones will be so inspired by your courage that they’ll break away from a toxic situation and make a fresh start today. Give them your blessing.

Some people like knowing that others have got their backs and will assist with any problem that arises. Others resent those who try to be problem solvers.

That’s a fine line you might need to balance now. You could know intuitively what somebody needs or how to offer the right kind of assistance or support. But it’s worth checking with them first that your efforts will be welcomed or appreciated.

Until August 19th, Mercury transits your family and home sector, dear Taurus, encouraging a reflective turn of mind. You’re likely to think and talk about personal and family matters more than usual.

There may be more activity, conversation, and animation on the home front now. It’s a generally good time for self-study, contemplation, generating ideas or plans for long-term security, and mental concentration or focus.

You may not always feel understood, although you are less inclined to reach out and keep in touch with others outside of your familiar circle.

You crave more peace and predictability. Today, someone might help you achieve your goals, or point you in the right direction of growth and advancement.

Advice about money or business can be valuable today. Plans may come together with finances, work, or other practical matters. The Moon spends the day in your social sector, encouraging you to take your mind off problems.

Today’s Quote: “No one should ever ask themselves that: why am I unhappy? The question carries within it the virus that will destroy everything. If we ask that question, it means we want to find out what makes us happy. If what makes us happy is different from what we have now, then we must either change once and for all or stay as we are, feeling even more unhappy.”
