Today's Taurus Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
August 04, 2020
With the Moon at the top of your chart for much of today, you have a strong sense of your practical priorities, dear Taurus. Still, transits today can lead to some overshooting. There can be great enthusiasm and big, beautiful feelings and passions stimulated today. Still, there is also a real tendency to overlook the beauty of the moment in search of even greener pastures. Aim to capture and enjoy an excellent opportunity without going too far with it. Plans made now may not work out later if you're overshooting. Promises may be well-intentioned but could be given in the heat of the moment or based on magnified feelings. Underlying tension and discomfort with the status quo can lead to unnecessary arguments or rash decisions. Take a deep breath, and wait until a better day to commit yourself to something big. It's best to channel your energy into something you love doing. The conviction behind your desires and ideas attracts excellent support. Whether to stick with tradition and familiar situations or branch out can be an issue later today. If a disagreement about a particular belief leaves you more than just mildly frustrated, consider whether it's triggering something deeper. Try to rise above it. Timing is off, but it's temporary.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- Mars forms a square to Jupiter this morning, and we tend to overdo or jump into action too hastily.
- We’re easily riled up, enthusiastic, or excited under this influence. Be watchful of making too much of a matter that doesn’t deserve the attention.
- We can be excited about our prospects, but perhaps too hasty, counting our chickens before they hatch, putting money into a venture that needs further review, or overestimating what we (or the world) can do.
- We may be so focused on what we think should be and lose sight of what is possible. A feeling of urgency may lead to coming on stronger than we intend.
- However, if we use common sense, this is a good time to stretch our imaginations and to entertain new possibilities.
- A Venus-Saturn quincunx this evening suggests we might feel torn between two equally appealing desires, situations, or viewpoints. Or, the dilemma could be between pleasure and responsibility, and perhaps not able to fully appreciate or deal with either.
- Mercury enters the sign of Leo tonight, continuing its transit of the sign until August 19th.
- The Moon continues its transit of Aquarius until 10:28 PM, after which the Moon is in Pisces.
- The void Moon occurs from 5:45 PM EDT, with the Moon’s last aspect before changing signs (a trine to Venus), until the Moon enters Pisces at 10:28 PM EDT.

This Month: Taurus
August 2020 Monthly Horoscope Overview for Taurus:
In August, great energy is with you for dealing with emotional or tricky areas, dear Taurus, and putting problems behind you. You can make some handy adjustments to your domestic world, or you're particularly enthusiastic about improving your personal life. If it takes a bit of extra energy to help you reduce stress all around, you're ready to put in the effort. Efforts made around the home, with domestic projects, and concerning activities with family, can lead to remarkable advances.
August asks you to acknowledge your feelings rather than push them to the side. Problem-solving skills are improved. You can quickly find solutions to problems that make you feel more secure, especially having to do with family and expenses. Thinking about the past can be quite productive and useful. While you tend to work behind the scenes more often than not in the first few weeks of the month, you're opening up to someone special and enjoying positive reactions.
The Full Moon on the 3rd reminds you of the need to pay special attention to your work or reputation. A call to action is possible, and while you could feel some pressure to perform, don't push yourself too hard. Pace yourself even with emotions running high. You might receive extra attention, or you might be in the position to take the lead. This Full Moon stirs your emotions, and a Mars-Jupiter square stirs your desires. There can be great enthusiasm, and big, beautiful feelings and passions stimulated now, but also some impatience, which you should keep in check for best results. Channeling excess energy into something you love doing can be a winning strategy now.
You tend to seek more security and enjoy a natural and smooth flow of communication with loved ones. Thoughts and conversations often turn to the old days, childhood, home, financial security, domestic pursuits, and personal affairs. You're in an excellent position to work out of your home or in home-related fields.
Your ruling planet, Venus, enters your communications sector on the 7th for a stay of a month, increasing your need and ability to share your thoughts and feelings with someone special. You're coming out of a lengthy Venus cycle that emphasized stability and security in your social and love relationships. This new cycle can serve as an important shift that's echoed later in August with Mercury and the Sun's move into your sector of joy. You're moving into a more sociable, curious, and chatty phase. You're bringing more charm and diplomacy to your communications.
Uranus begins its yearly five-month retrograde cycle mid-August. While Uranus was direct and in your sign in recent months, confidence in your pursuit of new experiences and expression of your independence has been evident. However, with Uranus now retrograde until January, more is going on inside you than on the surface. Use this time to get in touch with what is driving you, particularly if you've been feeling restless or on edge. Examine which fears or attitudes have been limiting your independence and personal truth. Plans may be put on hold or could slow down, whether this is due to circumstances or because you are not as quick to make changes or take personal risks.
The New Moon on the 18th brings fresh energy into your life for personal and domestic pursuits. You might consider this lunation a push to reconnect with yourself -- to check in with your feelings and comfort levels before pressing forward. A new start with family, home life, or living conditions and arrangements is possible now.
August transits help you find ways to satisfy both your need for new experiences and your desire to lay low and regenerate. This might mean a restful adventure or new activity that refreshes you.
Mercury and the Sun head into your sector of leisure, self-expression, fun, romance, and creativity on the 19th and 22nd, respectively. As August progresses, activities through which you can have fun, impress, create, and share are a strong draw. Others tend to respond well to your ideas and overtures.
While communications tend to be lighter or more playful, they can be rewarding and refreshing. Sharing your plans with someone and perhaps brainstorming to improve them can be rewarding. Developing satisfying rules or expectations in a relationship can be in focus. You're in a great position to apply yourself to something fulfilling and worthwhile, whether it's a hobby, project, or relationship. Your desire to create and share awakens.
July 2020 Horoscope Overview for Taurus:
You are curious and connected in July, dear Taurus. The Lunar Eclipse on the 5th reinforces this theme, but it also stirs the need for more distance from the mundane affairs of your life. You're easily enthused about your plans, projects, and ideas most of the month.
Venus, your ruling planet, has just recently turned direct after a retrograde period. As such, July brings smoother energy for self-expression. Even so, Mercury remains retrograde until the 12th, and Mars spends the month in the sign behind yours, and you're not quite as decided or confident as usual. You know your heart, however, and that helps all around.
The Lunar Eclipse on the 5th can bring to light a matter of spirit, adventure, or learning. There can be the fruition of a major project, something published, or a turning point reached in your studies. Epiphanies can be significant enough to change your perspective or even your life path. Announcements, awards, or completed projects can generate quite a bit of attention. Saturn's return to your solar ninth house gives you the chance to brush up on skills, boost your knowledge, and complete projects–things that will help support your work in the future. Until December, you're in a good place to process recent experiences and come to a clearer understanding of your place in the world.
After the 12th, more clarity comes, slowly but surely, to your projects and communications. You might have finished editing work, or word comes that moves things forward. Mid-month, if you’ve let something go or neglected a responsibility or errand, it can now come back to your attention. Aim to downsize or pare down rather than take on more. This is particularly important with Mars in the sign behind yours all month. Focus on detoxifying and cleansing: out with the old, in with the new. There can be some indecision, but it's necessary now as it's a time for reviewing plans.
You are more of a free agent this month, and you are likely to come up with more ideas and plans than you can count. However, you should definitely watch for committing to more of these than you can reasonably manage. Finances are clearer.
The last week of the month emphasizes more focus on family or home life. Even so, you're in excellent shape for instruction, guidance, advice, teaching, and sharing ideas. Your attitude is positive, and exceptional support can come from friends or networks. It can be a time of bonding through shared interests or ideas. Networking, courses, or extracurricular activities introduce you to new ideas, causes, and people that inspire you.
This Year: Taurus
2020 Yearly Horoscope Overview
This is another year when you’re breaking out of the usual routine, dear Taurus. And, you’re taking this to another level! Rule-breaking Uranus continues to transit your sign, encouraging a different approach to your life. Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto are challenging you to change your outlook and enrich your experiences. It’s a powerful time for new courses or training, as well as for your voice! People are interested in what you have to say and share.
Some of the heaviness of thinking, belief systems, attitudes, travel, or education is on its way out in 2020, freeing you up to enjoy yourself more deeply. You’re embracing desires you never knew you had and finding ways to pursue them. These can relate to new ideas, travels, approaches, and skills.
At the same time, a new theme is weaving its way into your life in 2020, and it’s all about a career peak or turning point. Saturn is making its way to the top of your solar chart, and by mid-December, Jupiter will join in for an almost year-long stay. This means business! Particularly for Taurus Ascendants, it’s a time for stepping up to the plate and taking responsibility.
Saturn heads to this important point in your chart on March 21st, but later (July 1st) moves back into your adventure/spirit sector until mid-December when it returns for a stay until March 2023! It brings your responsibilities to the “outside world” to light, and at times, to the test. It’s a pivotal period for you regarding the structures you’ve built and your career or reputation. This can be a time of harvest on career fronts, achievement, recognition, and new responsibilities. Others are taking you more seriously, which can be rewarding, but at times stressful. It can also be a time when poor past decisions come to light. It’s best to follow the rules and get organized during this significant transit.
Summer and Fall months are active for finishing up what you’ve started on educational or communication levels. There can be some backtracking, but it’s also a time of essential edits. You’ll be doing some work mapping out your future. You might also replace old ways of seeing life with new views, approaches, and visions.
All Taureans are feeling the newer transits in some shape or form. However, those most directly affected by the career influence in 2020 are born April 20-22 and with 0-2 degrees Taurus Ascendant. Those directly affected by changemaker, Uranus–who are feeling the need for a fresh new approach to life in 2020–are born April 25-May 1 and with a 5-11 degree Taurus Ascendant. You are moving towards a more authentic life path, and detachment from some aspects of your past is necessary. Fortunately, you often feel fresher, more energetic, or more expressive.
This is a powerful time for a new or renewed passion project. You’re looking for more meaning and motivation, and you’re likely to find it in 2020. You’re focusing on getting focused! Expanding a project or pursuit can be all-consuming at times, and mighty rewarding.
For early Tauruses, watch for overstraining and a nervous disposition. You’re not especially accustomed to this Uranian energy, and it can be taxing if you ignore needs for calm and detox from time to time.
You are changing in fundamental ways, and it’s exciting, but sometimes the people around you, especially those you’ve known for a long time, can feel alienated. This year is very much about personal growth, and 2021 will involve you more intensely with your work or status and material goals.
Career winds are shifting, but you may not feel quite “there” yet, having to take care of unfinished business before you begin fresh. Learn as much as you can this year, and put in the effort with things you genuinely love during this period of transition.
This Year in Love: Taurus
2020 Love Horoscope for Taurus
You are looking for freedom to express yourself, and you don’t want to feel confined this year with Uranus continuing its transit of your sign. Others haven’t experienced you quite like this! Independence tends to trump other drives in most areas of your life, including relationships to some degree. Relationships may be a little unstable as a result.
Jupiter’s transit of your spirit and adventure sector, and harmony with your sign, helps take some of the pressure off. This is a wonderfully supportive aspect, even if it isn’t explicitly connected to relationships since it boosts up your morale and allows you to have some fun even if you’re also working hard…cont’d
