You may take a rather stern or judgmental attitude toward a friend or acquaintance today, or a friend may act in a similar way toward you. You could be giving or receiving strict advice or helping to stabilize a friend who is in need of a support structure.

Meanwhile, you are probably turning a critical eye toward your hopes for the future now, finding a way to reconcile what you feel like doing with what you know you should do.

The words ‘sudden development’ tend to be received with unfounded levels of caution sometimes. You don’t mind ‘out of the blue’ occurrences as long as you see them as positive and manageable.

With Uranus in your sign, you will, at times, have to take the rough with the smooth where sudden change is concerned. But what’s coming your way now or shortly could have you punching air with delight.

Today’s energies are better for seeking ways to rejuvenate, dear Taurus, and not as ideal for locking something down. Sharing, learning, publishing, exploring, legal matters, or education might need extra attention to rules and structure this week and as we advance.

You’re no longer satisfied with waiting things out, and you’re more willing to do the groundwork to move things forward with Saturn now direct in your solar ninth house. It’s a good time to work on bringing expectations down to earth.

Reminders that you should be paying attention to the realities of a situation can figure strongly, but don’t let a small reality check discourage you.

Self-improvement endeavors can be in focus and successful as you go forward. Slowly but surely, you find new reasons to be optimistic about where you’re heading.
