Taurus’ Life Horoscope
As the month gets started on the 1st and 2nd, you want to keep things light. Sure, there are times in life where you have to handle the heavy stuff. But right now isn’t really one of them. So instead of getting into a soul-searching, hours-long email exchange, turn the computer off and go for a nice long walk outside (be sure to leave your iPhone at home, too). Breathe deeply and let the surroundings carry you away! By the somewhat difficult 7th, you really need to do your best to be tolerant. Really, really tolerant. When your emotions run deep, they run really, really deep and that’s what appears to be happening on the 12th and 13th. Put on your goggles and dive on in! Is a coworker, a neighbor, an acquaintance or a thrice-removed cousin getting on your nerves on the 18th, 19th or 20th? Well, there’s just no way around their weirdness — except ignoring it! Your love life, your work life, your bank account — all of it is overflowing with wonderful goodness on the 25th, 26th and 27th. Now, that is great! You need to take an emotional risk, if you’re single, on the 30th or 31st. You need to take an emotional risk if you aren’t single, too.
Taurus’ Love Horoscope
If you catch yourself acting uncharacteristically when it comes to romance on the 1st or 2nd, slow down. Take a second look. Are you trying to rush things with someone you aren’t really sure you want to go out with? If you are, then why? What’s making you tick, right now? Identifying your impulses and emotional imperatives will give you a huge step up, as you navigate the nearly-always-challenging-in-one-way-or-another terrain of dating. Uh-oh! If you catch yourself being condescending or arrogant or petty or defensive on that vegan sushi date on the 5th or 6th, excuse yourself to go to the bathroom. Splash a little cold water on your face, then peer deeply into your own eyes. What’s up, honeybee? Remind yourself how nice a person you are, then head back out there. Get fit, in body and soul, on the 10th and 11th. How? Check out a few of the options available to you, from a gym membership to a bodywork session. Don’t take too many risks, when it comes to your bank account or your heart on the 15th and 16th. Another power struggle, the 20th? Really? Hm. Luckily, things will look way more romantic on the 25th. Socialize on the 31st.
Taurus’ Money Horoscope
Well, just because you think you definitely know what you want when it comes to your career, it doesn’t mean that you should be totally closed off to other possible pathways on the 1st and 2nd. After all, sometimes it’s the tiny, pebble-strewn back road, not the big, shiny (but traffic jammed) main highway that leads most directly to your destination. By the righteous 5th, 6th and 7th, you feel, well, righteous. The question is, would humility be a better approach? Take a nice long walk to clear your head on the 10th or 11th. While you’re busy getting all that fresh air, you could have a couple of major inspirations! A financial risk should be considered very, very, very carefully before ultimately most likely being rejected on the 15th. An internal struggle turns external, unless you really make an effort not to let it on the 20th. But maybe it’s not so bad to let your coworkers see that you aren’t quite okay with the status quo. You are pretty okay with just about everything on the wonderful, successful 25th, 26th and 27th. Communicate on the 31st.
