Taurus season is, on its own, a time for the slow and steady approach to life’s curious quandaries. Instead of rushing headlong like Aries, Taurus takes a step back and patiently considers the most practical path forward. But patience is something the Bull possesses in spades — until something or someone prods him too hard, setting off a wild, kicking frenzy. If you’re playing toreador with Taurus, you will likely end up with a stinging backside.
Speaking of backsides, Taurus is the most sensual sign of the zodiac. Sex and self-care are very important to Taurus, and, without unfettered access to these, the Bull may become stubborn and even aggressive. Also crucial to his self-validation is a beautiful environment — Taurus wants to be in surroundings that reflect his own sensuality.
Do like the Bull this week: Chew your cud slowly as you consider the best approach to your endeavors. Be patient and curious. When the going gets rough, slough it off with a sweet roll in the hay or a lot of self-petting.
Don’t forget to read your Sun sign for the “big picture” and your rising sign for “where the work is.”
