Mercury may be retrograde which often can interrupt plans and strategies, but this week is still ambitious and productive thanks to strict Saturn and tenacious Mars.
The efficiency begins with a steady Taurus Moon helping us focus carefully on the meaning behind what we want to achieve. If we’re grounded in the right values that fuel our highest decisions, it’s an infinite supply of energy and support to help us achieve our goals. Taurus Moons help us find our center; our personal chore amidst the chaos, discomfort, and uncertainty.
It continues on Thursday’s trine when Saturn in Capricorn trines with Mars in Taurus inspires us to be proactive around all our responsibilities. So often we wait till the last minute or an invitation to really step in our adulthood. Let Thursday push you to think less with your inner child and more of your conscious adulthood. So essentially if you’re at choice between delaying or doing - do!
