Taurus (April 20-May 20): The same guidelines that were put in place to keep order and create safety are stifling your freedom and limiting your joy. Investigate whether rules can be broken or bent to suit you.

Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20): Your many responsibilities will require you to be outgoing. Your heart remains light, even as you deliver a substantial message.
