Aries (March 20-April 19)

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s a feel good Monday for you. Venus makes her appearance in Taurus at 2:25 AM, PST, giving you a dreams of Michelangelo. Very quickly thereafter, the god of lighting hooks up with Mental Mercury to super-charge your thinking.

Venus in Taurus loves to be touched. “Value” is her key word, especially valuing those she loves.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You are ready to solve the Rubik’s Cube in 7.64 seconds or less (and then you’ll want to try it blindfolded!). Nothing and no one is fast enough for your quick wit today. However Venus moved into neighboring Taurus at 2:25 AM, PST, helping you chill out with a good romance novel.

The giving and receiving of kindnesses assures that your hopes, dreams and wishes will be fulfilled during Venus’ stay in compatible Taurus.

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Expect your thought processes to be explosive with new ideas. The Aries fire of today’s electric communications meets with your Leo creativity to produce volumes of originality. The Moon is still in Leo, making this a home run in fire signs. Record your inspirations as soon as they occur, not because you have memory loss, but because your mind will move so quickly to the next thing. The shift of Venus from Aries to earthy Taurus may be a needed cool down for you. She’s slow and languid and loves to be comfortable.

Taurus is the ultimate attraction rather than promotion, which is the best of selling techniques for your charismatic charm.

Jumping to conclusions, finishing someones sentences for them, and reading between the lines could land you in creative, or confusing, territory depending on what is a “normal” mental speed for you. Today’s hot-wired Mental Mercury is loaded with inspiration and imagination, but the delivery system is a bit impulsive for your tastes. You have a beautiful and graceful helping hand from Venus’ arrival in Taurus at 2:25 AM, PST. Communicating through literature and poetry will flow easily from you for the next month.
