August 2020

Throughout the whole of July, not a single planet moved from where they were at the start of the month, with the Sun the only movement from one area of your chart to another in order to create any kind of variety. At the same time, there was a degree of pressure, making this a very different month. Mercury, who not only spent the whole of July but the whole of June as well in your communication sector will spend time in three areas of your chart this month. As Mercury determines where our head is focused, this brings some much needed variety. After wrapping up a two month visit to your communication sector on 5th August, Mercury will turn his attention onto home and family matters before returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 20th August. The Sun will make that same transition, as it does at this time each year on 23rd August. However, not before a New Moon on 19th August will create an opportunity for new beginnings on the home, family and/or property fronts. Meanwhile Venus, who also spent the whole of not only July but June in the same place but May as well, is finally on the move. Venus will leave your income sector on 8th August, wrapping up a visit that began on 4th April. Normally here for just 24 days, Venus will be working to make her final days as lucrative as possible. She will get a little help from the Moon, who will not only move through your career sector from 3rd August to 5th August but will create a Full Moon on 4th August. It was a month earlier that Saturn left and with Juno now in her last full month in your work sector, this could be a catalyst or trigger across the income, work and career fronts.


Week beginning Monday 10th of August 2020

The Moon returns to Taurus on Monday and during the first three days of the week will fuel your intuition, instincts and imagination and sharpen your sixth sense. This is always an advantage but these monthly visits are also a valuable chance to check in, both with your inner voice and with Uranus, who is at a standstill ahead of his retrograde turn in Taurus over the weekend. This will also give you an intuitive read on the first week for several months where there are signs of movement, especially in daily life and the general pace of the more mundane aspects. The planets that are more focused on the big picture are all in retrograde motion but you will find that mentally and in the more mundane aspects of life, things no longer feel as stagnant. At the same time, while last week's Full Moon gave forces across the income, work and career fronts a lot of momentum it will take less effort to keep the momentum going.


Tuesday 11th of August 2020

Since Uranus returned to Taurus in March 2019 and until he leaves in 2026, the Moon's return every four weeks is always a valuable chance to check in. That has always and will always be the case but especially since Uranus' return and especially as he is just days away from turning retrograde over the weekend. As the Moon and Uranus align you will find it a lot easier to stay in the moment and that is when intuitive insight and eureka moments gain their real power. Without projecting forward or back this is all about what your gut is telling you now.

About Taurus

Information about your birth sign


Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac. A sensuous and tactile earth sign, ruled by the planet Venus. She was the Roman Goddess of Love, a beauty with a curvaceous figure, and a beautiful smile just like yours!

The symbol for Taurus is the bull, a magnificent, strong and normally placid beast, that will stand its ground with fortitude. These same qualities can be said of you. Normally placid, but not always!

Most of the time you're agreeable and adorable, but on those very rare occasions when someone pushes you too far, your temper can be explosive. We may have to wave a red flag at a bull for a long time before it charges, then we should get out of its way!

Bull-headed might apply to you, because once you make your mind up, all the persuasion in the world is not going to change it. If you're ever a bull in a china shop, it will most likely be because someone is hurrying you, not understanding that you need to do things at your own steady pace.

It may seem that you do things a little more slowly than others, but you apply yourself more thoroughly. The friend who reads a book and finishes it in a fraction of the time that it takes you, probably won't recall the details a year on, you will.

The mode of Taurus is fixed. In other words you need stability and may actively dislike, or feel uncomfortable with, any big or unexpected changes. You definitely prefer the devil you know to the one that you don't.

Venus gives you a love of luxury and material things. You like money, for the wonderful things it buys and the security it brings. You don't mind working hard if it means you can indulge yourself and your loved-ones. You'll choose quality over quantity every time!

Venus also gives you an appreciation of beauty and form. You have a good eye for art and a good ear for music. Your tastes are discerning and it's likely that you have your own musical, literary or artistic gifts. With that said, we're equally likely to find you working on a farm, or in a garden, florist, kitchen, bakery, accounts department or bank.

Taurus is the sign that rules our personal possessions. You can be possessive about those things which belong to you, and why shouldn't you if they're yours! Taurus rules farming, not just the bulls that inhabit it, and the foods that grow in the soil to sustain us.

You're a tactile person who delights in sensual pleasures. This makes you a lover of good food, and you probably know exactly the wine you'd like with it, and which dessert would be best to follow. You incline towards a sweet tooth, perhaps this is why the Venus figure is often depicted as slightly plump or well-rounded.

You get along best with the other earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn and with the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces. Much of this will depend on the sign Venus was in at the time of your birth. It's never far from the Sun. If you're not sure and you'd like to be, one of our astrologers will be pleased to take your call.
