This year, you accomplish the most by concentrating on task after task rather than seeing the massive idealistic picture, and you’ll have incredible success. If single, you search for your soul mate and he or she comes along when you least expect it. If attached, you’re as happy as a bug in a rug. TAURUS stabilizes you.
