You will need to be on your guard over the next 24 hours, especially when dealing with people who envy your success and covet what you possess, be it something of a material nature or a social rank or a relationship. Don't let them take it.
Be aware of what is going on around you and be aware of how your actions can affect other people. This is a time of great opportunity but you must be on the ball mentally. Use your knowledge of human nature to get what you need.
You may not want to turn away someone who needs your assistance but the fact is you are snowed under with work at the moment and if you take on any more responsibilities it could all go wrong. Learn to say "no" - and mean it.
This is a good time for travel and social activities, so don't sit there wondering why life seems to be passing you by, get up and get busy. A special friend will become even more special if you include them in your plans.
It may at times seem as if you are being swept along by forces over which you have no control, and to a certain extent it may be true, but you can always influence the way your life develops. Knowing what it is that you desire will help.
This is easily one of the best times of the year for you but as Mercury, your ruler, turns retrograde today you must not take anything for granted. Remember too that actions always have consequences. Confidence is good - over-confidence is not.
Your powers of persuasion have rarely been higher but you still need to tread carefully when dealing with people both socially and at work. You may think you have won them over but can you be certain? The planets say not!
You will be challenged to do better and go further over the coming 12 months. By this time next year your name will be up in lights but make sure that a special relationship does not suffer as a result. Always make room for love in your life.
If you try to get out of something you previously agreed to take part in your reputation may crash. A promise is a promise, so do what is expected of you and do it with a smile - it won't be as tough or as boring as you fear.
Everything in your world is so positive at the moment that you can easily turn dreams into realities. However, because Mercury begins one of its retrograde phases today you must accept that even a Taurus can't do it all. Think quality, not quantity.
