TAURUS: August 20-27

Breve orazione penetra, an old Italian idiom, is translated as “short prayers pierce” or “concise prayers penetrate.” Extrapolate from that to come up with the meaning that “God listens best to brief prayers.” Next week, apply this idea whenever you ask for anything, whether you’re seeking favors of the Divine Wow or the help of human beings. Know exactly what you want; express it with no-nonsense succinctness.
