It’s spring! The air is warmer, tiny buds are beginning to unfurl on bare tree branches, green shoots are poking up through the cold earth, and the world is filled with a fresh sense of renewal. It’s no wonder that, as the landscape changes around us, becoming more vibrant, lush and beautiful after the monochromatic tones of winter, we’re filled with a corresponding urge to update our living spaces. Spring cleaning is universal: It’s all about clearing the clutter from our homes and doing a top-to-bottom deep-clean, scouring all the nooks and crannies we’ve overlooked all winter long. And there is a definite link between our physical surroundings and our inner emotions; setting our homes to rights makes us feel more focused, confident and optimistic. But the actual process of cleaning is far more individual, based on the particulars of your Sun sign. What’s your cleaning style? How can you maximize your natural strengths from the Zodiac and avoid the pitfalls common to your sign? Read on to find out.
Practical Taurus takes a slow and steady approach to spring cleaning. You go about it in a simple, step-by-step manner, first assessing what needs to be done, then getting the various tasks in order in your mind, and finally starting on the most reasonable or pressing one. Since you have excellent endurance and follow-through, you’re sure to complete the job, even if it takes an entire weekend or longer to get your living space into ship shape. Your challenge with spring cleaning comes in when you’re in a lazy, self-indulgent mood and just don’t want to commit to that level of hard work. But this should be an easy issue to manage; you’re too sensible to let the mess spiral out of control for long. Since you see the value in keeping your home clean and organized, sooner or later, you’re sure to make it happen. If you’re having a hard time getting motivated, promise yourself a reward, such as your favorite sweet treat, for a job well done.
