Retrograde & RSO

Taurus Season is in full swing, and the practical magic this zodiac sign provides is ideal for bringing new levels of efficiency to all that you do. Finicky Mercury is solidly in its first full week of retrograde as it backs up through pragmatic Taurus from April 21 to May 14. Move through your missions with care! While Mercury in retrograde doesn’t sound like the best news out there, let us deliver a silver-lined perspective to you. For one thing, there couldn’t be a better excuse to embrace slow living. As you move through this week, consciously choose to trade burnout culture norms for mindful, deliberate activities.

Since Taurus is the zodiac sign that rules the senses—and the body—you’re invited to treat yours like the most sacred temple.

Be kind, be good, and be generous. Be the kind of person others want to see coming their way. If you have to fake it, then do, because this caring, positive vibe will grow, settle and become natural soon enough. The Six of Pentacles asks us all to be a little bit, well, nicer to each other this week. Make an effort. Pay compliments, offer support, listen, show up, share advice, and provide help. When you’re good to others, it makes you feel good, too. Plus, it stores up “good karma credit” in the cosmic bank. What more do you need? Just be kind!- Anisha Reindorf
