Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

People talk about how loyal and dutiful you are, making you sound like everyone’s St. Bernard.  And you’ll get to be that for someone dear this week, like a sibling or perhaps a friend who is like a sibling to you. Mercury going forward suggests that you’ll also have the wisdom and insight to say or do something helpful and perhaps even transformative. But it’s Uranus’ retrograde on Wednesday that may prove the most transformative for you.  You like to rescue and be the stalwart that never slips, but how much do you allow others to be there for you? That’s messed up, Taurus. Letting your underbelly show is not a sign of weakness. It’s an act of cosmic love, because we want you around for a long time. Getting support and love when you need it is one way to ensure that.
