Taurus: April 20 – May 20

So, this post got delayed by many things: First, I took way too long on Aries. Second, I had to take the equivalent of 4 tests in a month. All of those required driving anywhere from 2 to 4 hours away to take them. The stress of it all made me nearly sick to my stomach. I’m still awaiting results as I type this up. Third, I started moving and packing as I have to be out of my place by the end of May, which is actually the end of this week. It’s been a long couple of months. I actually gave away my light box in lieu of throwing it out or breaking it up (it was a cardboard box and some tissue paper) during the move. Sorry if my pictures aren’t up to my current standard. Hopefully next month’s pictures will be better, once I get resettled and make another one.

That being said: Here’s Taurus!

So the Taurus sign runs from April 20 to May 20th, and actually, my birthday also falls under this sign.
