Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
According to poet Alexander Pope, “Blessed is he who expects nothing, for he shall never be disappointed.” But this might be a hard week to have low or no expectations, because expectations, high or low, can be the only thing that keeps you going sometimes. You may have an almost desperate need to know things are either improving or going to stop from getting any darker. So as much as you would like to be that Zen master who can feel comfortable with “nothing,” you need a different way to manage disappointment or at least the fear of it. It’s true that disappointment can be directly proportionate to our expectations, but sometimes what makes the difference between high or low are reason and research, rather than dreamy wishes, thoughtless willful actions or falsely feeling free of our attachment to any expectations.
