TAURUS: July 31-Aug. 6

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): 19th-century English artist John Constable specialized in landscapes. The countryside near his home especially excited him. He said, “The sound of water escaping from mill dams, willows, old rotten planks, slimy posts and brickwork, I love such things. They made me a painter, and I am grateful.” Take a cue from Constable. Spend quality time appreciating simple scenes and earthy pleasures that nourish your creative spirit. Give your senses the joy of being filled with vivid impressions. Immerse in experiences to thrill your animal intelligence.
