Hold true to your deepest values, which means understanding them and yourself as fully as possible, along with using them as guides. Keeping your focus here will almost certainly enable you to see your forward path in far greater clarity. You can dispense with diversions and distractions that you might now recognize as such. This should help you get out of your own way, and make it much easier for you to reach your most important goals.

Written in the Planets
Mercury enters Taurus today — a placement that favors learning from experiences and travel. Do you have any plans of that sort during the next couple weeks? The planet of mind, communication and transit is moving swiftly right now, and will slide into Gemini (along with the Sun) on May 21. In the meantime, you might also notice the ways vision and touch influence your perception and thinking; this looks like a good time to get artsy.
A slow and deliberate mode of thought and communication also marks Mercury in Taurus. With Uranus still just inside the doorway of this sign, however, it’s possible that mouths could move faster than brains can fully consider, in certain situations. That said, if an innovative idea strikes you, can you move with it while it’s still fresh and exciting, rather than mulling it until the moment’s gone by? Mars conjunct the asteroid Chaos in Gemini could enhance motivation and mobility with particularly fertile-yet-unformed conditions in work and creative settings right now.
