Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Be sure that you’re alert and paying attention to the messages and “new instruc-tions” that the Cosmos is attempting to give you, especially toward the middle of the week. Yeah, if I’m making you sound a little like a wo/man from U.N.C.L.E. or an agent from a Bond movie, then roll with it. Maybe that’ll help you stay on point, if only for a corny chuckle or so. Regardless, you’ve been ready and now, ahem, get-ting more willing to make the shifts you need to make, but it’s gonna require you thinking outside the box. Fortunately, some help is on the way, but you could miss it if you’re caught up in your routine or groove. If you need more space and time to decompress without being on high alert, then directing your attention toward the weekend would be your best bet.
