Taurus: When I lecture, especially in workshops, I use the examples of a couple of my Taurus lovers. Svelte, sensual, cautious, perhaps pedantic, still, there's always that sensual touch. Just works. Usually. Usually a cautious one, aren't you? Mars, Venus, Mercury, and, of course, the Sun are all in your sign here, before too long. This week. I'd step back and look at that comment from my lecture, that suggestion that a Taurus can fail to render a decision in a hasty manner. Between birthdays and inner planets, and Mars, there's a hastening, a quickening, a "hurry up and do this thing!" It's more of a sense rather than a statement. However, that urgency that your Taurus psyche feels and expresses? I'm not sure every other sign is as worried about the urgency. Part of the problem. You're in a hurry and it would seem like we're not. Therein is the main difficulty. The best things to do? Slow it down. Slow it way down. Crawl to an almost complete stop. Folks expect you react one way, since you're not giving in to the usual Taurus characteristics? Don't expect us to understand. Slow down. Please?
Gemini: Big, puffy, gray clouds blew in from the coast. Along with that came moisture. Clouds laden with water, and air, warm, damp, hot, humid, like a summer's day -- in Houston. Houston is the only place on the planet possibly more humid than Austin. Not that it matters much, this isn't about "A" town and superlatives, it's about that first real, sincere blast of summer heat, portends a long and hot summer, and it looks like, here in Gemini, it's starting now. Hot. Humid. Sticky damp, while, in theory, the moisture is good for the skin and hair? Yeah, practically, it's not. What's left of my hair just furls but then stray strands hang down and irritate me. That's not what this is about. It's more about that sticky humidity. Not comfortable, and the only relief is in the AC.
