Mercury breaks into Taurus helping set business on track. Taurus is the sign of the material world and money with a special emphasis on all things sensual, quality and luxury. Business has been hit hard lately so let this astrological omen symbolize the grit and determination to set things right, walking and working forward in hope.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). With the untangling of Gordian Knots, much relies on being in possession of the right tools. The intractable problem of the day will be solved with the equivalent of a sharp sword.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Desire keeps you moving forward in a way that getting what you want cannot. So even though it can be frustrating to live in a state of desire, it's the constant craving that keeps the world spinning.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don't let your time and energy get wasted by trivialities. Most of the small stuff can be conquered with love. Dial up the compassion and generosity and whatever was eating you will become irrelevant.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). What you think is the problem is not the problem. It's actually a solution of sorts, although not a very good one. Ask yourself, "what am I solving for?" and "how can I solve it better?"
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The world will assign you roles. Accept none of these appointments. You are your own casting agent. The role that's right for you is the one you assign yourself.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Perhaps it seems counterintuitive to help others when you yourself need help, and yet that is exactly what will bring you the most peace, resolution and happiness.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The way to peace of mind is simple. Don't argue with your thoughts. Accept that thoughts come and go, some helpful, some unhelpful and many untrue. If a thought causes you pain, you can choose another one.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). When you're already a full-time caregiver, anything you're asked to do on top of that responsibility can feel overwhelming. To avoid burnout, go easy on yourself.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Fear is a contraction; love is an expansion. When you're afraid, you're less than yourself. When you're radiating love, you're more than yourself.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Doing all the jobs yourself is neither necessary nor wise. As the CEO of your life, there are many delegations to be made. Get help wherever you can.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Wanting to change is half the battle. Once you make your mind up, solutions will come to you. It doesn't have to be hard. Doing one small thing differently will lead naturally to other changes.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You'll have a deeply emotional connection with other water signs — Cancer and Scorpio. These relationships are not always smooth, but they are worth the effort and will ultimately fortify your heart.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 27). With your stellar attitude, what you'll mostly experience is optimism, though you'll fully embrace the wide range of feelings that come, using each to your greatest benefit. You'll join a team and win a common goal. You'll be promoted to a position where you're able to serve and help more people than you ever have. Leo and Sagittarius adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 3, 20, 1, 15 and 48.
ASTROLOGICAL QUESTION: "Help! I messed up my home's feng shui and I need it back the way it was — spiritually. But I want the renovations to stay because they turned out awesome. What happened was we did some renovations in the first part of the year to the kitchen and dining area, and it seems like ever since we made those changes there has been a lot of bickering, arguing and negativity in the house. What should we do to clear the air and be more harmonious as a family?"
How intuitive of you to notice how shifting the feng shui of your home affected your family. It will be very helpful to invite the energy of Libra into your home. Libra is the sign of harmony and loveliness. The Libran symbol is the scales, representing life's delicate balance. Increasing the Libran energy in your home will bring more positive sharing, teamwork, friendship and diplomacy. Call on the soothing powers of Libra by with items that come in sets of two, such as candlesticks, salt and pepper shakers and bookends. Libra energy also flows where there is an equal distribution of furniture throughout the room, a well-planned lighting scheme and lots of art. Libran colors are lavender and airy blues. Also, soft classical music is a Libran enhancement. I hope your family members respond to the environmental serenity you create.
