Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Sometimes you just have to be still and know that somebody else is Lord or at least can or will handle something else. This is not a wholesale encouragement to embrace sloth, though you can do that on occasion (but never for long). I’m saying just the opposite. You run the risk of saying, doing and perhaps being too much this week, but you have options. When it comes to getting things done, you can delegate, delay or deal with it yourself. You can’t do all of one of these things with everything, though. You also have to watch your overall energy. You could extra-sharp now, in action, word and deed. So you want to find space to enjoy stillness, especially when your planetary patron, Venus, has her conjunction with the Sun on Sunday. Focus on “planting” new desires that yield with patience and determination.
