Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)

Although I would say that you’re normally gentle with yourself, I would ask you take extra care with yourself this week. I don’t want to make you sound all “precious” or make you feel like I’m treating you with kid gloves as if you’re made of glass (we know you’re not!); but the new moon coming up on Thursday requires mildness. Let’s say you were bold in taking some action last week. Then this week is the week where you round out that boldness with finesse and detail. It’s like a haircut. You can hack off the big parts, but you should take time to make things smooth. There’s a dynamic creative dynamo in you and it’s churning. But it requires a little time—rushing or browbeating yourself for not fully being into swing isn’t gonna help things go better or faster.
