This week comes the end of Aries season; On Friday morning, the Sun leaves the sign of impulsive Ram and enters dependable Taurus. If Aries season is a time to start new projects and go on adventures, Taurus season will be a time to stay resilient, tap into your determination, and commit to staying on track. You know who you are and what you're working for, and no one has the power to intimidate or distract you. Your stubbornness is a powerful force; Make more of it. In the meantime, find your weekly horoscope for each zodiac sign below.

Do not tend to be overly concerned with material possessions. You don't lead a strict lifestyle, but your identity isn't tied to the things you own either. However, this week you may find it surprisingly helpful to pay more attention to your possessions. If it's cluttering your space, spend some time sorting through what you no longer need and getting rid of; If there's some small material comfort you've been longing for, don't deny yourself. It may not change your life in the long run, but it may be exactly what you need at this moment.

If you've been feeling unlucky lately (maybe just the last few weeks, maybe longer), that's about to change. It's as if all the good things have been stored away, as if all the kindness in the universe has been waiting to reveal itself to you just yet. This does not mean that you will get exactly What You want exactly when You want it – the universe is weirder and more surprising than that – but it means you're about to turn a corner, and you'll find a brighter world on the other side.

You tend to be happiest when you are in the thick of things. This doesn't mean you want to be the star of the show per se, but you want to be where the people are and where the action is happening. You'd rather have too much on your schedule than too little. But this week it's time to take a break. The harder you push lately, and the more you push, the more you'll benefit from taking your foot off the throttle a little. Don't imagine giving up your vibrant and exciting life. You just rest and refuel before diving back in.

You are keenly aware of the feelings of others, and are keenly attuned to your friends' subtle signals and unspoken signals. Sometimes, this sensitivity makes you excellent at dealing with complex social dynamics and unfamiliar situations. Other times, it makes human interaction more stressful than it needs to be, especially when you start reading too deeply into people's comments and overthinking your actions. Try to stop worrying so much about what's going on in other people's heads. You're not a mind reader and you don't have to be perfect: trust that as long as you say what you feel and act in accordance with your values, you won't go wrong.

Everyday life can be boring enough already; Last thing for you What you want is for it to be boring or average. Why be ordinary when you can be amazing? Why stay in the middle of the pack when you can stand out? The more you try the harder it is However, in order to convince others, you are likely to be less successful. For now, at least, focus on doing your job well and showing up where you need to be, whether anyone else seems to notice or not. If you can operate under the radar right now, it will pay off in the future.

It's one thing to be open to the unexpected in theory, but quite another to put it into practice. The call to adventure always seems to come when it is least convenient; Exciting invitations come your way when your plate is already full. Timing is important, of course, but sometimes the best thing you can do is take advantage of opportunities when they arise. This week, consider taking a risk or two. If you trust your intuition and stay true to your principles, you may choose rashly, but you will never choose wrongly.

Lately, you have been bored with your life, your routine, and even your personality. You dream of making the kind of bold choice that could change your entire life, and you imagine how you could become a great, better, or just a better person. Different Than you are. However, for now, you will be happier not by trying to change yourself, but by working on being the person you already are more honestly and persistently. You do not need to develop new talents or a radically different personality. Work with what you have.

Your stubbornness and persistence are likely to be activated this week, especially if they have been dormant. Some people won't like this side of you – they'd rather you be nice and agreeable to the point of being a pushover – but you don't have to listen to them. It's true that you have to make compromises, just like everyone else. You are not the only person on Earth or the only person with important needs. When it comes to what's really important, you have the right to put your foot down, and the people who matter will understand.

You love a great gesture, a decisive moment, a powerful moment that changes everything. Change is inevitable, so you may be better off moving on. For you, life becomes more interesting when there is a little drama in it. There are times when change seems to happen overnight, but you will likely be disappointed if you rely on it this week. The key now is consistency: the slow and steady approach may seem boring to you, but make a little progress every day and the results will soon seem like magic.

No matter how committed you are to your work, creative projects, or community, no matter how much time you spend at work, you tend to worry that you're not doing enough. Even after you've done everything you can, you still feel like you could (and should) have done it more. So, this week, it's up to you to be a little stubborn about your right to set boundaries, rest, and take time to enjoy yourself. No one, not even you, can be productive everyone the time. Don't let anyone – especially yourself – convince you that relaxing is a waste of time.

You have a clear code of personal ethics: While you are willing (and often happy!) to break the rules that others try to impose on you, you are serious about following your own rules. It's easy to hold yourself to standards you'd never dream of holding your friends to, and to expect perfection from yourself even though you're generous with the people you love. But this week, make sure you're not being unnecessarily hard on yourself. Your ideals are beautiful and worthy. Just remember that you are human too, and deserving of compassion as much as anyone else.

Feeling everything deeply is a gift, but when every conversation is an emotional journey, or when every interaction with a stranger has the potential to be meaningful and profound, it's hard to get through your day. Your compassion threatens to overwhelm you, making it difficult to manage your life, let alone be useful to others. Try to focus on taking care of your physical self. Eat well, go to bed early, and take long walks in the afternoon sun. In small moments like these, you will find the much-needed relief from all the emotional stress.
