Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
Don’t get too locked down by this question, “Was it worth it?” I know you tend to think in tangibles, so it’s understandable that you may think about recent experi-ences in terms of their tangible value. But that’s just it: experiences can’t be tallied up only in dollars and cents. Some events in our lives are truly priceless, though they may have come at great cost. At best, thinking in terms of costs is a useful trick for assessing life’s lessons, but not for lamenting the experiences or lessons learned from them. Now you can look at what you have left as an impetus to gain more. Or to acknowledge your losses & gains, so you know what to avoid next time, much like learning to keep receipts for expensive purchases so you can return them or use the warranty. Life may not always dole out guarantees; but thank goodness for warran-ties, even the hard-earned intangible ones.
