Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Communication issues divide many a duo, so take advantage of these next three weeks, when expressive Mercury visits your partnership zone and helps iron out any wrinkles in your closest relationships. Dial down your telltale Taurus stubbornness for the sake of compromise. In turn your partner will likely be more open to showing you the same respect. Take stock of your platonic relationships, too: If a friendship has been more give than take lately (or vice-versa), start restoring balance today.
As people pull away, you become more possessive. It’s human nature, Taurus. Today, however, your challenge is to sit still and give those gun-shy types their space. Remember: Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Don't give chase or come up with excuses to text about matters that you can honestly resolve on your own. And hey, how about using this time out for a little self-development? Dive into one of your slumbering passions and your bout of obsessing will soon fade away.
Long boring meetings can wait! Today's dramatic dalliance of the moon and action-oriented Mars rouses your passionate nature. Bow out of anything your heart isn't into, Taurus. Push a deadline forward until next week, tell your Debbie Downer pal you'll get back to her over the weekend. Grab an upbeat friend or your S.O. and do something wildly spontaneous. See who's playing at your favorite live-music venue; head out of town and Google a route as you drive. Anything you've never done—and anywhere you've never been—is a good place to start.
Taurus: Romantic and social distractions are abound today, and you could be pulled away from your goals by an enjoyable conversation—or even an exciting flirtation. With the Sun and Mercury aligned in your partnership house, it's fine to make people your priority today. But don't let your responsibilities slip through the cracks. Silence your digital devices and let friends know that you'll get in touch on your lunch break. Or set up a dinner date and save all the juicy bonding until then. Try to rejig your schedule so you can handle the personable tasks today like brainstorming or making client calls.
Pack your bags, Bull, you're going on a guilt trip. A manipulative person could push your buttons big time today. Before you know it, you're racing around like a headless chicken trying to prove how much you care. But overextending yourself like that is a lose-lose proposition. Although you want to be supportive, it shouldn't come at your own expense. Have a conversation about expectations instead: Perhaps this person is demanding more than you can honestly give at the moment. They may be disappointed to hear a "no," but it's up to you to set new—and honest—limits.
Three’s a crowd this Saturday as romantic Venus and serious Saturn team up in your intimate eighth house. You're in no mood to share attention, so cancel the group hangs and enjoy some uninterrupted one-on-one time. Warning: The green-eyed monster could crash the party making you uncharacteristically jealous. This distrust may be coming from a past hurt, Taurus, not anything happening in the present. Safeguard your heart but don't put up walls. That said, not every attraction should be pursued. Saturn's measured influence helps you detour away from the destructive types, or anything that could damage an existing relationship. On Sunday, the only Scorpio new moon of 2016 powers up your seventh house of relationships and jumpstarts a stimulating six-month chapter for your love life. New moons bring the opportunity for fresh beginnings, so seize this opportunity, which won't come around again for another year. Got a simmering flirtation? Make a bold move. Couples can steer their relationship into deeper terrain. Relationships are dynamic, and to keep it strong you need to give it the kind of intentional nurturing it deserves.
