Business matters are in favor, and work you did in the past or behind the scenes can come in handy. It’s also a time to apply your inner wisdom and experience to your work and feel particularly proud of yourself and your accomplishments. Taking care of old business or tying up loose ends makes sense now, and it can be freeing. The Moon moves into your sector of communication and the mind, stirring your curiosity.
TaurusYou can feel motivated to work harder toward your goals, dear Taurus, and a steady, step-by-step approach works best right now. While the Sun continues to transit an outgoing sector of your solar chart, it harmonizes with Saturn today, and it becomes natural to take things slowly but surely. You might decide to work on a meaningful project or take care of practical matters that strengthen or improve your life in small but measurable ways. Thinking about what’s best for you in the long run can help you make better decisions today.
