Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

For as far back as we’ve been able to document civilization, your sign’s eponymous symbol, the bull, has been associated with the embodiment of desire.  Desire’s a funny word, though.  The root for the word is Latin: de (from) + sidere (the star or the stars.) Yes, you’re reading correctly: it seems someone believed that desire either was from the stars, or we shoot our desires toward the stars.  Either way, you’ve got your work cut out for you this week, Taurus.  It might be hard to figure out how to embody your desire, because you have no clue where your desires are stirring from or you don’t know where they’re going to lead you.  So here’s a little advice: start first with owning them, rather than dismissing them or thinking you can starve them.  They will pave the way for a fresh direction to emerge in the next month or so.
