    Taurus

    Try not to get too down on yourself. It isn`t you, it`s everyone else! As the Stars change their position, you seem to be surrounded by unpleasant people and acts of meaningless antagonism. Stop and think about this -- maybe a shift in your attitude could make all the difference. In either case, don`t let what you can`t control stop you from going about your day. Getting some alone time to rest and rejuvenate is your best bet this evening.
