As sensual Venus and robust Mars square today at 5:12 am EDT, we may receive fiery flashes of emotions that erupt suddenly with great force and then quickly recede. However, communicative Mercury’s sweet link to Venus provides a positive outlet for releasing the dynamic energy and tension. Heated debate and contentious conversation can be productive, so long as we maintain cool-headed, objective, and respectful. We must guard against saying something in the heat of the moment, for what seems right in the moment may prove outrageous in the long run.
You may struggle to find the right balance between the need to accomplish something and the need to relax today. It’s possible you’ve had even more energy than usual lately, perhaps from being cooped up in quarantine. It’s important you establish positive outlets for blowing off steam and exerting willpower, so you don’t accidentally alienate those closest to you or disrupt the serenity of your home life. Instead, use this as an opportunity to channel all your kinetic energy into a new project or practical skill.
Like so many people around the world, you may currently feel held back from accomplishing your goals and executing long-term plans. Fortunately, as a Taurus, you could find relief about any spoiled plans by directing your energy into creative works or finding ways to connect with those closest to you. Embrace the possibility that this period of seclusion and downtime will bring you into alignment with new information that ultimately changes your goals in ways that better serve your long-term well-being.
Beware the temptation to spend erratically right now, for you may not be thinking straight during these turbulent times. Emotions are running high, especially in the arenas of activism and the collective of society, and arguments with friends or associates could wind up wounding your sense of security or self-esteem. As a result, it will be all too easy to slip into a pattern of self-soothing by overspending. Instead, set up structures that allow you to self-indulge responsibly. You’ll thank yourself later.
Your natural amiability and sensitivity may be challenged at work today, and you might need to find a creative way to manage asserting yourself while keeping a friendly demeanor. Alternatively, a pushy boss or authority figure may try to trample over your good mood or take advantage of your kindness. Your magnetic charm is enhanced right now, so let that work for you but not at the expense of losing what is rightfully yours. Float like a butterfly and sting like a bee!
Being that you are such a social creature by nature, you may be surprised at how much you enjoy spending time in solitude or working behind the scenes today. This is an excellent time for using the energy you might ordinarily spend socializing on creative endeavors or expanding your areas of knowledge or study. You may be especially inspired in whatever you choose to pursue, so use this to your advantage. What you do now could unlock parts of yourself you never knew existed.
The line between business and pleasure may be blurred today as passions are stirred, with your work and professional lives colliding. You are not typically an impulsive person, but even you may buckle under the pressure of the day’s cosmic energies. What you believe is a good idea right now may only lead to heartache and regret down the road. Allow cooler heads to prevail by avoiding making any moves while you’re under the influence of this fervent influence.
Your talents for arbitrating conflict and mediating between opposing parties will be put to the test today as you face pushback in a close partnership. If you can successfully navigate challenges to your opinion with grace, you will impress influential people in your sphere. Allow tension and conflict with others to inspire you toward more sophisticated solutions for achieving social harmony. Do not stifle yourself or others; instead, allow space for a friendly debate and a meeting of the minds.
Find a creative way to satisfy your need to expand your horizons and explore the new and exotic without leaving your to-do list behind. A new acquaintance may prove positively fascinating, and you might be so enchanted by this person that you’ve put your commitments on the back-burner. You don’t need to choose between the two — you can manage responsibilities while leaving room for your well-being. Remember, you can always delegate some of your tasks to others. You don’t have to do everything alone.
Do not allow good news about a loan or sudden sum of money allow you to throw caution to the wind and spend everything you have in the name of a good time. If there’s anyone who loves to wine, dine, and indulge in a good time, it’s you, but be sure not to squander your lucky financial prospects on cheap thrills and momentary pleasures. Instead, see this as a cosmic blessing that sets you up for when you really need it later on.
Intense energies are running high between you and someone in your family today, but there is a thin line between love and war, especially if you are contained in such close quarters with each other. You may be simultaneously enjoying more one-on-one time with them, while also becoming entangled in frequent flare-ups. Ensure that both of you have the space and time to spread out and make personal choices that benefit each other individually so your interactions remain peaceful. Absence makes the heart grow fonder.
You will benefit from a harmonious working environment today, with support from colleagues and projects that allow you to prove your value to your organization through even the simplest of tasks. Try to guard against speaking too bluntly or forcefully in your tone, as your enthusiasm could be taken the wrong way by others. Instead, channel your extra mental energy into honing your skills and absorbing new and relevant information. By doing so, you continue to position yourself as a necessary asset to your company.
You could find yourself struggling to maintain the proper balance between enjoying yourself and remaining responsible today. You are probably in the mood for fun, love, and celebration, and you should certainly find ways to enjoy the summer after such a stressful year. However, overindulging could leave you in a regretful and resentful mood later on, so find a way to take care of business while also enjoying some fun in the sun. You can have — and deserve to have — the best of both worlds.
