Bye-Bye, Taurus Sun

The Taurus sun bids of adieu with this insight: When the destination is in clear sight, the quest is made easier. This is not, however, usually the case. Most of the paths we journey will twist, dip and climb, making it impossible to keep the destination in our sightline. Look then through the lens of the heart, and let hope lead the way.

ARIES (March 21-April 19). All of the pressure on you lately gives you a short temper. Choose your battles carefully. The upside of this is that your high expectations will inspire others to be their best.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Not content to wait for instruction that may never come, you take the initiative. Because you are willing to try things that have not been demonstrated to you, you’ll wind up with both messes and successes.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Greed, jealousy and revenge may be perfect themes for the movie of the week, but they hold no appeal for you. You’ll avoid those people whose lives seem preoccupied with this kind of drama.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you fantasize about something, does that make it more or less likely to really happen? You’ll come up with strong evidence to support whatever assertion you believe.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Your goals will require both whimsy and organization. Whether you blow the seeds off of dandelions to send your wish to the winds or make a spreadsheet complete with deadlines, your aims are well within your reach.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Being on time will be crucial to the impression you make on others now. It may seem unfair, but people will decide what kind of a person you are based on your punctuality and other aspects of your timing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Even though you’re goodhearted, you’re not a saint. You’d like to know that there’s a return on your investment. Your engagement with others will have a lot to do with how appreciated you feel inside the relationship.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Your fortunes are many — a fact that’s easier to see when you run into those whose fortunes are few. Your problems always seem a lot smaller when you get out and experience the bigger picture of life.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your thoughts bounce, race, dance and generally carry on in an uncontrolled manner. You don’t have to communicate all that’s going through your mind, though. Later, you’ll be glad for what you didn’t say.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You have no desire to be pinned down, and yet your attractions, if followed, will most certainly lead to some kind of agreement. Agreements are, by definition, behavior inhibitors.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The right way has already been discovered. The new right way will only come from exploring all the wrong ways. A creative mind like yours won’t have any trouble thinking about what hasn’t been tried.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You are not afraid of looking foolish or worried about protecting your respectability, and that unconcerned fearlessness is precisely why you are so respected by those around you today.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (May 20). Because you see money as a form of communication and an acknowledgment of services rendered, it becomes easier for you to offer more value and accept more money in return. The next 10 weeks see you in passionate pursuit of a mission. August brings the prize. At the end of the year, keep to your budget. Aquarius and Aries people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 20, 1, 33, 24 and 19.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: “I can hear electricity dripping down the walls of my house. The high-pitched sound of my WiFi sometimes keeps me up at night. I distrust microwaves. I can’t talk on a cellphone without getting a strange electric taste in my mouth and feeling my head and ear heat up with the energy. I try not to think about these things so I can just live my life, but I can’t help but think that all these radio waves are not good for anyone and could very well be poisonous for me. Have you noticed that certain signs are more susceptible to electromagnetic fields?

Electromagnetic field sensitivity or (EMF sensitivity) is an increasingly common condition, though the scientific community is skeptical as to the claims of those who suffer symptoms. It has been my experience that while water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) are usually more sensitive to the emotional tones around them, it’s the air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) that are more sensitive to electromagnetic fields. It is likely that your high personal frequency allows you to perceive a wider array of vibrations. You can get grounded and spiritually recharged by spending time in nature away from devices.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Cher was born when both the sun and Mercury were in Taurus, the sign of distinct and strong voices. Her natal Mars and Pluto in Leo suggests a love of entertainment and a drive to delight. Her Capricorn lunar influence is a moon of longevity and business savvy. Though it’s been a while since the Academy Award winner was in a film, Cher’s planets suggest that there are still juicy roles in her future.
