TAURUS (April 19-May 20)
What's happening in a relationship is an expression of a process within you—one over which you might seem to have little control. That, however, is not true. To establish your dominion over your own mind, the first step to take is to observe yourself carefully. In particular, keep an eye on what most would call "unconscious" processes, feelings, ideas, and expectations. Those have power over you to the extent that you withdraw awareness. You will have power over them to the extent that you raise your awareness. Once you start paying attention, you're likely to notice that there are specific ways that you're seeking freedom from a certain kind of confinement that has grown old for you. I would define confinement as a need to remain stable in a certain element of your identity, seemingly for its own sake. But now you are changing in ways you cannot contain in any previous personality construct. You are waking up; you are finding yourself—you have tasted a measure of freedom and you want more. You may be wondering if you can have all of this without upending your life as you know it. That is a question you can only answer through experience, though it's clear that certain long-standing factors of your existence could use a little friendly shaking up and shaking loose.
