August Monthly Horoscope - Taurus


Dear Taurus, you might encounter some sudden obstacles or frustrations on the 1st when it comes to your career. As uncomfortable as it is for you, change is the name of the game right now; rash actions or inflexible perspectives could both slow you down. As Venus enters your 6th house on the 6th, you’re inspired to do your daily work with love and to better take care of your health. However, Venus squares Saturn (the 9th) and Pluto (the 26th) this monththis month, beware of workplace conflict and avoid overworking yourself in search for perfection. The value you’re searching for is already in your possession! On the 7th, Uranus retrogrades in your 1st house, marking the start of a 6-month period where you might have sudden shifts in your attitudes toward your life path, your appearance and your self-expression. The Leo Solar Eclipse on the 11th shakes up the areas of family, home and inner security for you. Right now, this is connected to how you and others are mirroring each other on the path of life, reflecting each other’s desires and attachments. Issues around possessivity, control or material exaggerations might have the purpose to redirect you towards establishing a secure base within yourself and expressing your creative inner child in a healthy way- playful, but not completely irresponsible, generous and warm, but not excessively lenient with others. Mars retrograding in Capricorn on the 12th might bring up higher education, travel or publishing issues that you’ve encountered this May, encouraging you one more time to reflect on what planning and commitment really mean to you when it comes to expanding your horizons.

On the 18th, the Venus-Mercury sextile might give you the opportunity to improve your work or family relationships, smoothing down old conflicts through communication and compromise. Mercury going direct on the 19th eases your house of home and family, removing blockages and maybe allowing some progress with the changes that were seeded on the Eclipse! On the 23rd, the Sun enters your 5th house, marking a time where romance and creativity take center stage in your life. Especially with the Grand Earth Trine on the 25th, this is a great time to invest responsibly in creative projects and in self-development, with an emphasis on things that you’ve already initiated in the past.

The Pisces Full Moon brings to a conclusion what you’ve started this March regarding friendships, social involvements and personal dreams. A solid preoccupation for your self-growth and enjoyment (hopefully without falling back on excessive comfort) can ultimately help you make a meaningful contribution to society. How has this manifested for you since March? On the 27th, Mars goes direct- gone are the days of low energy, frustrations and delays in your studies, travels and career! Enjoy this relieving August end as your batteries get recharged to their full potential!
