Taurus Weekly Horoscope

Blow out the candles and make one more wish—and then do your best to squeeze in one last day of celebration. Taurus season comes to its annual conclusion this week, but you’ve got until Tuesday, May 21, to bask in the heat of the radiant Sun as it wraps up its visit to your sign. As the sign of practical luxury, you’re encouraged to do something a little indulgent on Monday. The next day, el Sol blazes into Gemini and your second house of financial foundations and practical planning until June 21, accompanied by analytic Mercury (until June 4). Starting when your alarm goes off Tuesday morning, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and hunker down into a more grounded groove after a hedonistic 30 days. Less will definitely be more now, so embrace the beauty of simplicity. Your quality-minded sign instinctively prefers enduring classics over au courant trends. While the Sun was in Taurus, you probably experienced a barrage of brilliant ideas. Now it’s time to put the best of the bunch through the reality filter and decide which ones are worth an investment of your time. This solar power surge sounds the call for savvier budgeting. It’s not enough to pull down a healthy income if you burn it as fast as you earn it. Set a few financial goals (if you don’t already have half a dozen) and set up a special savings account for a couple big-ticket items. If you’ve got a timeline, do the math to determine how many months you have to save up the total, then have that pro-rated amount auto-transferred in each week. Don’t touch it—and don’t look at the balance often—and you’ll be amazed at how fast the funds will accrue. Singapore or Sao Paolo: Here you come!

If you’ve been an obsessive networker lately, Sunday’s balancing quarter moon in Pisces and your eleventh house of collaborations can help you be more discerning about how you spend your free time. You might THINK you need to give equal energy to work friends, and acquaintances, AND your inner circle, but that math doesn’t compute. While it’s great to have so many different people in your life, the truth is they don’t all deserve the same attention. Yes, you need to put in a certain amount of “facetime” with colleagues and industry folks, but you can set limits (they probably do!). There are also ways to interact with several folks at once—dinner events, group hangs—that won’t leave you exhausted and drained. The Pisces moon can put you back in touch with your heart and your feelings and triumph over that sense of obligation. By being a little choosier about who you spend time with, you lower the risk of growing resentful and then exploding in a passive-aggressive rage. On the other side of the scales, if you’ve been a little TOO insular, this is the week to widen your reach. Come out of your bubble and explore industry schmoozing opportunities, book or social clubs and even activist meetups that speak to your soul—always a valuable reminder for your caring sign.
