You’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately and pining after things you can’t have. Scrap those negative vibes and turn your efforts to something a little bit more productive.

Oh Taurus, we’re sorry to tell you but the cold chill ain’t over yet. In fact, you might catch the flu any day now. Maybe it’s best to go into hibernation and wait this one out. Grab yo’ snacks, grab yo’ wine, and heat up that electric blanket.

Things are finally picking up. People are starting to take notice of what you’ve been saying, rather than brushing your hardcore (and sometimes awkward) truths under the proverbial carpet.
