Today's Taurus Horoscope from Cafe Astrology
August 20, 2019
There is some tendency to close up or withdraw today, dear Taurus, making it better to work on your own just until you're more self-assured. There can be a conflict between your indulgent side and your responsible side, with neither coming out a clear winner! As the day advances, things flow, particularly on mental and emotional levels. You might sort matters out in your mind or with someone special and get to happy places and conclusions. An open-handed approach to domestic issues, sharing, finances, and intimacy is the most successful, and there is a tendency to focus on the most supportive, positive, and hopeful scenarios. People tend to cooperate with you, and family or intimate relationships can improve simply through connecting, reaching out, sharing good humor and anecdotes, and extending help or support. Family or co-workers can be cooperative and possibly quite helpful in terms of bringing new insight into your life. Cooperation with others helps fuel your motivation.

This Month: Taurus
Family relations and domestic matters are in focus and run smoothly in August, dear Taurus. You have the chance to repair troubled relationships, and you may very well grow closer to someone. Financial support for home improvement endeavors can be in the offing this month. Bringing more harmony and calm to your home life is a strong focus. Virtually every other area of your life will benefit in some way if you are at peace on the home front, and this seems to be your priority.
You can feel quite a bit of enthusiasm building, primarily along emotional lines. A feeling of support, whether you gain backing or enjoy helping others, is uplifting. Personal matters, intimate relationships, and family or household matters are in particularly good form in the first half of August. This is most notable as you come up with workable solutions to problems or reach out to connect and bond with people you care about. You can feel eager to put an obstacle behind you. It's a time for asking yourself what you can improve to make your life better all around.
You may feel inspired by your deeper connections with a person or project, private matters, family connections, and realizations or discoveries about psychological issues. Breaking through walls or taboos, practicing forgiveness, and releasing or sharing a burden can figure strongly.
With Jupiter's direct turn on the 11th, you'll gradually see improvements or forward motion with your intimate life or finances. You feel more confident about dealing with tricky emotions and complicated problems. Personal charisma increases. Leaving a bad habit behind feels right. The Full Moon on the 15th occurs at the top of your solar chart, reminding you of the need to pay special attention to your work or reputation. A responsibility or a call to action is likely now. While you could feel some pressure to perform, don't push yourself too hard.
Romance and pleasure-seeking are in sharp focus as the month progresses. Desires come on quickly and with great force in August and September. As Mars, Venus, the Sun, and Mercury all head into your joy sector, a shift of focus to more creative, friendly, and pleasure-seeking activities occurs. Surprises are in store, and they're pointing you in new directions! Unusual turns of events surrounding creative projects, romance, friends, and children are possible. Choose to grab invitations to go out and have some fun but try to keep one foot on the ground, particularly when it comes to money.
You are on fire in the personal appeal department in the last week of August, and there can be more than one admirer to juggle. You might bring great pleasure to someone's life or choose to chase a pleasure yourself. You are exceptionally aware of--and awake to--the world around you. Your courage builds, especially when it comes to sharing yourself with others, and creative enthusiasm is with you. You are heading into a very dynamic period for personal relationships and self-expression! Forward-looking, creative energy is with you, or events and situations make you feel vital. You're unlikely to encounter much resistance to going after what you want, on your terms! The urge to make a splash or to take a risk is strong. You approach others in new ways as you have your eye on making progress and improvements. Pastimes, pleasures, and people that break the mold are more attractive to you than usual.
After the fabulous New Moon on the 30th, you may revive or begin rewarding hobbies, enjoy healthier relationships with children, and possibly fall in love or enjoy new channels for expressing and enjoying yourself to the full. The 23-24 is especially strong for romance, but the brand new beginnings tend to come after the New Moon on the 30th and into September. It's all about finding and following your joy, and this abundant energy follows you next month, too.
This Year: Taurus
2019 Yearly Horoscope Overview
You’re in a wonderful period for self-discovery in 2019, dear Taurus. Uranus moves into your sign more consistently from March forward (last year you had a sneak peek of this energy), and Jupiter spends much of the year boosting your intimate world. The potential for growth and improvement is tremendous.
Jupiter in your solar eighth house until December is powerful for your intimate life. This is a period that’s potentially rich for enjoying private time, better self-understanding, or for developing a close relationship. It’s also a powerful influence for gaining others’ support, which can take the form of loans or moral support. Love is rich and deep in 2019.
But while you’re developing a rich, profound connection with a person or a project, you’re exploring your independence with Uranus now in your sign for seven years! You’re naturally a peace-loving sign, but with Uranus in Taurus, freedom may be more important to you than keeping the peace these days, and this is a radical change on some levels. People around you may feel as if they’re dealing with a brand new person at times in 2019 and beyond.
Uranus awakens your consciousness to areas of your life in which you’ve felt restricted. There may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations or past conditioning patterns. You are more inspired now, and your personality bubbles with bursts of enthusiasm. There can be a significant break from the past that propels your life forward. It’s important to watch for rebellious behavior — to aim to act rather than react. Uranus transits can be times when there is a significant new influence, person, or path in your life that rather dramatically deviates from your version of normal. Those born from April 20-27 are most affected by this transit in 2019, while this energy is stirring for the rest of the sign.
Your mental outlook, belief systems, studies, and personal interests continue to be in strong focus this year. In 2019, you’re challenged to get your daily affairs into order in addition to extra attention to your more lofty endeavors. There are details to handle! Skills development may seem a little tedious with all of your larger interests in play, but it can be very useful and rewarding, and perhaps quite necessary.
Use the power of Mars in your sign from mid-February through to the last week of March for moving personal plans and interests forward. Love and creativity are in especially good form late August through to the end of September. Feelings can come into your life very suddenly now — this can be like a starburst on an emotional level. Still, there are complications in love this year – things need sorting. All year, but especially after your birthday month, watch for overreaching. Chances are moderating behavior will help simplify your life.
Long-term friendships may be forged this year, particularly through networks, personal interests, studies, the internet, and long distances. There may perhaps be some conflicts between friends and lovers or blurred boundaries in a particular relationship. You have Saturn and Pluto encouraging you to simplify and improve your life this year, and Neptune inspiring you, all the while with Uranus exciting you and demanding changes. Saturn’s support of your sign helps keep you grounded and stable, even with all of the changes and new desires brewing now, which is comforting for you as a Taurus.
This Year in Love: Taurus
2019 Love Horoscope for Taurus
Saturn has moved out of your intimacy sector (since mid-December 2017) and is in harmony with your sign, dear Taurus, continuing in 2019. This is a huge relief for relationships and for your attitude towards intimacy, in general!
Jupiter transiting your partnership sector last year, and from November 2018 to December 2019, Jupiter moves through your intimacy sector, ramping up the intimacy level of a relationship further. So, you get two years of extra attention (with Jupiter, think expansion) to one-on-one connections.
While Saturn is no longer transiting a relationship-focused area of your solar chart, it’s in harmony with your sign until 2020, and this subtly boosts you up. In fact, this transit usually stabilizes your life, and it does have this effect to a certain degree. However, Uranus is set to shake up your life on some levels, too, so you’re in for a real mix. Uranus spends around 7 years in a sign, and is now in yours.
Uranus transits Taurus from May 15- November 6, 2018, and then from March 6, 2019 – years 2025/6. While it’s only near the beginning and in fact retreats from November 2018 to March 2019, it’s sure to make some impact on you, especially those born early in the sign of Taurus. In fact, this can bring a show of independence – a burst of “I need to be free” energy – but until March 2019, you may pull yourself back into your shell.
Going forward, though, from March 2019 forward, you’ll be more and more independent, in general. Tauruses are known for their rootedness and desire for peace and calm, so the electric Uranian energy in your life may throw a few people you know for a loop! Don’t worry, the important people will adjust and accommodate your new need for self-expression. Just try to avoid making unnecessary sweeping changes, and try to discern between rebellious behavior and fair behavior. Make sure you’re making choices instead of only reacting.
Because Mercury rules your romance sector, its retrograde periods can sometimes point to a slowdown or period of review for romantic relationships. This can range in intensity from a period of no real progress, to an easing of pressure, to a period of limbo, to a backward turn. In 2019, Mercury is retrograde from March 5 to 28 (in your friendship sector), July 7 to 31, and then October 31 to November 20 (in your partnership sector, so double whammy)…cont’d
