This will be particularly true when the spirit-driving sun conjuncts innovative Uranus in determined Taurus on Monday. This aspect encourages us to persevere, reminding us of all the great things we can accomplish when we stay focused. Use this moment to really tune in to your inner power.  

Later on Monday, relationship-ruling Venus will sextile responsible Saturn, helping us find a real sense of comfort in our connections to others. It’ll be a beautiful time to kick back and celebrate the people who offer us stability and compassion. This aspect could also put us in an especially helpful mood, making conflict resolution and problem-solving a breeze. Don’t hesitate to lend a hand to anyone who asks for your assistance. 

Then, our emotions could start to teeter-totter when the mood-ruling moon waxes into her first quarter in dramatic Leo on Wednesday. This lunation is known to have push-pull energy; try to remember this and stay mindful of how you react to situations that are beyond your control. Having backup plans in place will help you navigate this tumultuous energy. 

It may feel easier to relate to others once reason-ruling Mercury speeds into easygoing Taurus later on Wednesday. When the messenger planet moves through the fixed earth sign, we’re able to ground ourselves and become more realistic about what we can accomplish. Stick to the basics to find a routine that’ll provide the results you’re seeking.  

You’ll be wise to pick your battles when pushy Mercury in stubborn Taurus squares transformative Pluto in independent Aquarius on Friday.

On Saturday, you could start to feel a bit more daring as sensual Venus conjuncts dynamic Uranus in affectionate Taurus. This aspect has the potential to ignite new flames and reintroduce intrigue in our existing relationships.

Have fun trying out new things — variety is the spice of life, after all. 

The Taurean theme of seeking pleasure in our surroundings could reappear later on Saturday, as the ego-ruling sun conjuncts abundant Jupiter in the fixed earth sign.

Fight against this negativity by channeling your energy toward making our world a better place for everyone.
