Taurus August Horoscope

The focus on home and family is still strong until the 23rd. Review our discussion of this last month. On the 23rd the Sun moves into your 5th house and you begin another one of your personal pleasure peaks. This personal pleasure peak is a bit different to the one you had in April and May. There it was more about physical kinds of pleasures. This month it is more about leisure and creative kinds of pleasures. It is vacation time. Even if you are still working and not officially on vacation, there are more fun and leisure activities happening.

Though retrograde activity increases even more than last month – half the planets are moving backwards from the 20th onwards – finances don’t seem affected. Mercury, your money planet, is still moving at a fast clip. Like last month he moves through three signs and houses, showing that money and financial opportunity happen in different ways and through different people and situations. Until the 12th money comes through the family and family connections. You spend more on the home and family as well. From the 12th to the 30th it comes in fun kinds of ways, as you’re enjoying yourself or involved in leisure activities. You spend on fun things as well. It is a period of happy money and speculations are more favourable as well. On the 30th and 31st it comes through work and through social connections. There will be a brief pause in the financial life as Mercury has his solstice from the 28th to the 30th. He pauses in the heavens (in latitude) and then changes direction. This is what happens financially too – a pause and then a change of direction.

The family as a whole – and especially a parent or parent figure – prospers this month. Very happy career opportunities are coming from the 12th onwards. Love too seems happy from the 12th onwards. Love is complicated, however, as Pluto, your love planet, is still retrograde. There is still a need to seek mental and emotional clarity in love. Singles have options between love affairs – fun kinds of love – or serious committed love. But again, there is no need to rush into anything.

Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, will also have her solstice this month, from the 16th to the 19th. She pauses in the heavens and then changes direction (in latitude). So, there is a pause in your affairs and then a change of direction. This is a good pause – a pause that refreshes.
