Welcome to the Surreal World, Taurus. The sun shifts into Aries for a month, the ruler of your twelfth house of fantasy and illusion. It's time to dive deeply into your subconscious mind and mine for some hidden gems. Creatively, this is a time of divine inspiration, as you are able to integrate all the lessons of the past year into something quite brilliant. Everyone makes mistakes, Taurus: it's how you learn from them that counts. Out of the ashes of your struggles, you may have an idea for a charitable project or a business venture with a humanitarian or conscientious twist. Let your imagination soar. You CAN support yourself while making a difference for the world. This is also an important month for healing, as the cosmos are asking you to fearlessly face your demons. Changing your external world only brings temporary solutions. Be still, Taurus. If you want to effect change in your life, you need to examine your patterns. Why do you reach for that bag of cookies, the American Spirits, or the martini glass? Nervous habits stem from a deeper anxiety. This is the time to process and get to the roots of your pain so that you can move on for good. Working with a counselor or support group can help immensely. You might even try hypnotherapy or EMDR, both of which allow you to access even deeper parts of your own psyche. Friday's new moon may illuminate a Yoda figure you're meant to work with. PS: This may be someone you know from the past, or he or she may come from the recommendation of an old friend. Are you surrounded by too much stuff? Before you become a prisoner of your possessions, dive into a decluttering mission. Be ruthless with yourself about letting things go. Simplifying your life can have an epic impact on your peace of mind. Thank these trinkets for the memories; then, ship 'em off to the Goodwill or gift them to people who could actually use them.
