Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
With Mercury correcting his retrograding course on Sunday, here’s your chance to clear the air, though there may be a lot of foul effluvia up in the mix right now. You may have to retrace your steps or maybe even swallow some pride, but you can make this work. Your sign isn’t often discussed in terms of the compassion you can actually show. It’s no accident that the Buddha’s birthday, Wesak, is celebrated of-ten during your sign’s season. It’s because when you get beyond the nitty-gritty of material existence, as you know all too well, there’s something else there…or from a more Zen point of view, there’s nothing at all.  That “nothing” reflects that beyond the clusters of hurt and pain we see, our own or the other person’s, there an open field of possibility. That’s a renewal point. Embrace that.
