Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Here’s to the excavating and exhuming you’re doing this week. You might think there’s a Mercury retrograde with how things and people are be surfacing this week. (There’s not.) What is happening is a kind of Sankofa moment—where the way forward is to look back. You’re definitely moving forward—slowly, of course. But you got to do a little digging too as everything won’t fly up as quickly as you’d like. And this is less of an introspective moment; it’s about nursing your petty obsessions—you know that moment your curiosity about things in the past leads to something much more. It might be kind of scary to have your obsessions as guides, but that’s exactly what I’m advising this week, Taurus.  They will light your path like tiki torches to your own garden party of understanding and growth in the months ahead.
