Taurus - August 2019
Hello, beautiful bulls! Big changes are coming to Taurus world in August, as Uranus’s erratic energy links closely with some important lunar activity! The new Moon of the 1st celebrates family life, and significant alterations in your domestic world are likely. These should in general be positive, but with the Moon in square with Uranus during these early days of the month, unexpected disputes with awkward relatives could arise. A second new Moon blesses us on the 30th and the focus is your love life. Contact from Uranus is more positive here, sending you surprise declarations of love, and romantic encounters in the most unusual of places! Just be mindful that Uranus will turn retrograde on the 12th, and is currently moving through your sign, so whether what is coming is good or bad, you will probably find it hard to accept the newness at first. This is especially true for April-born Taureans, as Uranus is, of course, hovering right over your natal Sun right now.
With the Sun directing positive vibrations towards home and property matters until the 23rd, these first three weeks of the month are excellent for buying and selling, property renovation and making money from family heirlooms or businesses. The days of the 3rd to 14th are especially beneficial for acquiring extra household cash as the Sun trines Jupiter, although you do need to be careful around excessive spending here in this part of your life. Take care also around signing property-related contracts between the 12th and 20th as Mercury conflicts with Uranus; you may feel you know best but it’s really important you listen to advice and check any small print. Your home is truly your castle under the influence of the Sun’s authoritative influence, and you will want to protect your property and everything inside it to the best of your ability. This is a good time to review security measures and ensure all your possessions are safe.
The full Moon on the 15th lights up your career zone, and offers you a chance to finalise important projects and finally receive the recognition you have been hoping for. Others are more likely to pay attention to you now and observe and assess your work, so make sure everything is in order. If you have been cutting corners, you may be exposed at this time, hence it’s important that you ensure you are following policies and procedures to the letter, even if these seem pointless. The full Moon illuminates even the dark corners of your world, the places you don’t really want to go to, so you may find yourself in the middle of a spell of soul-searching now, as you are forced to be honest with yourself about whether your current career is truly the one for you.
Venus arrives in your house of leisure and pleasure on the 22nd, and will soon have you partying like there’s no tomorrow as your social calendar busies up! With Venus and Mars also conjunct here after the 23rd and into early September, enjoying life will probably take a rather hedonistic turn, and having a good time will be an emotional and impulsive experience. This is also a very creative time for you, in which taking on a new pastime or leisure activity will involve using your inventive and artistic talents. If you have children, the days after the 25th are particularly useful for talking through their problems with them, although you need to take care that your protectiveness doesn’t get in the way of allowing them to learn from their own feelings. Have a fantastic August!
