Summary Taurus Horoscope: An emphasis on home and career, with two major eclipses in these sectors. Mercury retrograde could see a romance or child-related matter come up for review. Saturn direct in your financial zone could straighten out a money matter.
Extended Taurus Horoscope: There’s sure to be lots of activity in your life this month, with two game changing eclipses, Mercury and Uranus going retrograde, and Saturn going direct!
The month begins with two major heavy hitting planets, Jupiter and Pluto, squaring one another on August 4th in your work, health and travel sectors. You might have difficulties with illness, travel, or work.
This aspect has occurred before- in late November 2016 and late March 2017– so think back to those times for clues as to themes that could emerge.
Then, the first eclipse will be a lunar eclipse on August 7th in your career zone. Luckily, this eclipse will reach out happily to good luck Jupiter in your work and health house, as well as stable Saturn in your financial sector, suggesting that you could get a raise or bonus at this time!
It’s also possible that you complete an assignment or job and get paid.
One thing to be watchful of, however, is the fact that energizer Mars will be zooming through your home zone, directly opposite this eclipse. It’s possible that things on the home front will be intense. Perhaps you will be busy with home repairs, children, or family members.
Some good days to address home and family needs are August 10th, 13th, 16th, 20th, 21st, 22nd, and 27th. Luckily, I don’t see any other negative squares or oppositions between planets in your home house this month!
In fact, the solar eclipse on August 21st takes place in your home sector, and it is the most gorgeous eclipse! It will conjunct motivator Mars and the fated North Node, reach out happily to Jupiter and Uranus in your work, health and closure houses, and trine stable Saturn in your financial zone!
You may move, buy or sell a home, or welcome a new addition to the family. It’s also possible you get a work from home position.
There is reason to suggest that you make any moves earlier than the eclipse, however, as on August 13th Mercury goes retrograde, and I think we all know to stay away from Mercury retrograde by now!
This time, the retrograde will take place in your love and children sector, so you may need to review and revise a romance, creative project, or child-related matter. I would avoid making any major commitments “official” during this time or signing any contracts. You could find down the road that whatever you committed to is not what you thought it was.
Mercury also rules your income sector, so it’s possible that a salary matter will come up for review as well. Mercury goes direct on September 5th.
Switching gears, you’ll be pleased to hear that your ruler, love planet Venus, is gliding through your communication sector this month, blessing travel, siblings, car,s and commitments.
Venus will make loving aspects to Mercury, Neptune, and Pluto respectively on August 10th, 12th, and 15th, so these are wonderful days to address communication needs.
Days I would avoid are August 17th and August 24th, when Venus will be angry with Jupiter and then Uranus in your work, health and closure houses.
Luckily, August 27th sees the Sun in your work and health house reach out happily to Saturn in your financial zone. Even better, on August 25th, Saturn goes direct in your shared finances zone, suggesting that a financial matter will speed up or become easier.
