13. What’s next month’s horoscope?
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) ☆☆☆
Sometimes you feel like all you do is take care of others in some way. Are you thinking, “When will it be me?” Only one person can make that difference in your life, and that person is you. Start establishing stronger boundaries. If you feel resentful, stop doing so much. When you honor your needs, others will stop and notice. They will start honoring your sensitivities as long as you do. No one wants to witness a raging Bull. Trust that fact. Motto of the Month: Look at your positive qualities, too.
