This Month: Taurus
Your personal life, home, and family are in sharp focus this month, dear Taurus. With Mars in your solar fourth all month and a Solar Eclipse occurring in the same sector on the 21st, your domestic life is especially busy. Projects around or on the home are favored, and so are activities with family and loved ones. Because the energies centered on this sector of your solar chart are so dynamic, you'll want to do something special, take action, and make changes. In fact, changes in your family dynamic or home life are necessary--and may be a long time coming--as the Solar Eclipse ushers in powerful energy for new beginnings in your personal life. This can also be a time that you indulge in a luxury item for the home, or when money comes through to fund a project.
Uncertainty or lack of structure in your career can seem to undermine your efforts to improve and enjoy your family and home life. However, in truth, your personal life and public life shouldn't be vying against one another, and that's what the current set of eclipses are helping you to see. It's all about balance. If you can let things flow instead of pushing for direction, you'll be able to see this not as a hurdle but a call to see things more clearly.
The Lunar Eclipse on the 7th gives you a window into your heart when it comes to where you ultimately want to head in your life. People are noticing what you do, but don't let that idea intimidate you! The truer you are to yourself, the greater the opportunities.
Until the 11th, playful or creative communications, learning, flirtations, and engaging learning experiences can figure strongly. Mercury's retrograde turn on the 12th can introduce some complications getting your intended message across. August is a powerful time for getting in deeper touch with your innermost needs and desires, but it's not always a straightforward process. People from the past can be a theme now, whether it’s about someone reconnecting with you or thinking (obsessing) about the past. Slow down a little, give people space, and then talk things through from September 10-29. There can be some backtracking affecting your romantic relationships and creative projects, but it also gives you the chance to rethink certain plans.
Venus is in your communications sector until the 25th, boosting the pleasure you take in connecting, sharing, and learning most of August. You may be verbalizing your affections very well now, or there can be a focus on loving chats and sweet talk. Some of you will find or enhance love through the phone or chat lines, or with fellow students or in the neighborhood. It’s also a favorable time for pleasant relationships with siblings. Particularly around the 9-11, you can enjoy an excellent rapport with friends. Your conversations are revealing.
Resentments and frustrations tend to rise to the surface more easily around the 14-16. Be conscious of inclinations towards mind games or other forms of manipulation and avoid them if you can. Attempts to over-manage your life can only lead to stress. Fortunately, you're battling these pressures less and less this month. In fact, you're slipping into a more moderate, reasonable way of approaching your relationships, work, and leisure time.
August can be an important time for boosting your feelings of security, and possibly more freedom or enjoyment on the home front. Some of you could be moving to a larger space or freeing yourself of clutter so that your living space feels larger. If you're in need of a fresh start with family, the cosmos are supporting you. Helpful aspects imprint the Solar Eclipse on the 21st, and since the effects of this eclipse last for months to come, the changes you make in your personal life will have long-lasting, positive effects on your life. This is an excellent time for applying yourself to a meaningful project or endeavor. It's also a good time for launches of long-term ventures or laying the foundation for a major project or business. Taurus is a sign very capable of making plans years in advance and eventually putting them into action successfully. There can be a sense of accomplishment from taking care of important details.
There is super energy for attractions and flirtations in August, particularly in the first two weeks, although things may slow down mid-month. Creative, romantic, and recreational activities are in stronger focus in the last week of the month, but you may not see forward motion on these matters until September.
You are better able to manage your time, and you find work or your routines more rewarding now. This is also an excellent period for sensible fitness and health programs. You may be handling financial matters, especially debts and taxes, logically and realistically now, although you may want to wait until later in September--after Mercury's retrograde--to make big money moves. Two eclipses occur in August, and while these do prompt significant changes, you'll need time to sort things out before pushing ahead with new plans.
This Year: Taurus
2017 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The bigger headlines for your year ahead have to do with work, health, and partnership, dear Taurus. This is also an important period for improving your home and family life. More joy can be discovered in your daily routines and your work in 2017. In October, you enter a brilliant yearlong period for rewards through partnership.
Work is especially available to you, and you come across well in job interviews if you need them. There is increased job satisfaction and vocational fulfillment, although the tendency to take on too much should be managed. Jobs involving handling others’ resources, editing, and researching can thrive in particular. Especially in August, you’re in a powerful position to make long-lasting and impactful lifestyle changes.
Health can dramatically improve, and you might find that you’re taking more pleasure in managing it. This is a good period for attention to physical fitness and health routines, as you are more aware of how these positively impact your energy and confidence.
From March to the end of April, you’re in a period of relative retreat and perhaps limbo for some of you. This is a period for looking back before you move forward. While Venus is retrograde (exact dates are March 4-April 15 but there can be some haziness in the surrounding days), you are not as sure of yourself and uncharacteristically second-guessing your decisions. Rules and plans seem to be changing. Roadblocks and delays don’t help. Past loves can reappear, whether they do so in the flesh or memories fill your mind. Love may be complicated because of this, and you will need to decide whether or not they’re in your past for good reason. However, you’ll come out of this period seeing things with new eyes, and better off for it. This is a period for personal review when you could be reconsidering certain elements of your life and keeping more to yourself. Ideally, you get in touch with your heart’s desire after this review period and you move forward with more confidence and clarity.
There is a continued push to take care of your debts and to change your lifestyle to incorporate better habits. However, this year, you’re enjoying this process more. In fact, work and health pursuits are more fun and engaging than usual. You might thoroughly enjoy reworking your diet or doing some extra work if you have exciting goals in mind. 2017 is quite excellent for renewing or rekindling your desire to master your routines. In your enthusiasm, you may take on more than you can handle at times.
While 2015-2016 likely brought more opportunities to socialize and enjoy yourself, new relationships may not have been very serious or long-term in quality. The years 2017 and 2018 bring partnership opportunities of a more serious or involving nature. This influence begins in October 2017 and runs until November of 2018. There can be a relationship that brings much joy to your life – a connection that puts a bounce in your step. More freedom may be necessary for existing partnerships. You’re unlikely to tolerate stale or lifeless routines and dynamics in your relationships any longer. There is more focus on quality rather than quantity in your social life. There can be multiple opportunities in the relationship department – an embarrassment of riches for some!
Career and family need special handling, and coming to a balance of energy between the two is necessary this year. Great rewards come to you through keener attention to your home life and family, as difficult as this may be from time to time. Changing roles on the home front are possible, and you are more concerned and involved with family as well as domestic projects in 2017. You may be making more investments into your home and family, both energetically and financially speaking.
From mid-October forward, a yearlong trend begins that brings benefits to and from relationships. This is a powerful time for one-to-one relationships, counseling, marriage, common-law marriage, and business partnership. It’s an excellent period for bringing conflicts to resolution and for mutually beneficial arrangements. Helpful people come into your life now. In fact, the coming two years are particularly strong for support from others.
This Year in Love: Taurus
New! 2017-2018 Love Horoscope for Taurus
Saturn has been transiting a house in your solar chart that influences an existing partnership for those of you who are coupled. The resources of a relationship are in focus, and shared money may be an issue. It’s also about intimacy and sexual sharing, which might now be scrutinized. For those people not currently partnered, there can be changing feelings regarding intimacy nevertheless. This transit lasts until December 2017, so it’s not in effect for much longer.
Self-awareness is strong with Saturn in your solar eighth house (from 2015 – December 2017). The tendency to nurse a fantasy about a partner, yourself, or a relationship is lessened, which on one hand can bring up too much seriousness or possibly even a bit of bitterness in some, but on the other, it means you’re accepting people and yourself for who you are, and this is important for any serious partnership. There is less of an inclination to play or put up with emotional games. During this cycle, you have a chance to truly explore fears of rejection and power issues. There can be challenges with a partner over money and the sharing of chores or responsibilities – who does what, who doesn’t do what, who contributes more or who contributes less, etc. Certainly, the less flattering side of a relationship may show itself now.
Typically with Saturn transits, in the process of stripping away delusions and getting to a more realistic position, initially we can go to an unrealistically negative place. This is one of the reasons why Saturn transits are considered difficult, yet the rewards are significant once we find that balance – a place of truth.
Saturn moves out of your intimacy sector in mid-December 2017 and moves into harmony with your sign. This is a huge relief for relationships and for your attitude towards intimacy, in general.
And, with Jupiter’s move into your partnership sector starting on October 10th, 2017, you’re beginning a powerful, beneficial, supportive period for one-to-one relationships. These are the relationships that are defined by a commitment or in which one is implied. Jupiter’s transit of your partnership lasts until November 2018, and is wonderful for a fresh start with a person (or persons). This may be a business partnership or special friend, but for many, it’s a love relationship.
Close relationships are big headlines for you this year and next. This is about seeking out and finding joy in your closest relationships and getting in deeper touch with your needs from others. People help you during this period. You may be less independent than usual, but this is can be a wonderful thing, as you are opening up to others’ involvement in your life.
While Jupiter blesses your relationships and commitments, it forms fabulous aspects with Pluto and Neptune. This can mean attracting or enhancing a partnership through travel, higher education, shared beliefs, friendships, group associations, and community involvement….cont’d
