This is another dramatic and amazing month for you, Taurus. While not so good for business as usual, it might be a fine time for mental gymnastics and inner investigation. Your transforming worldview is calling you to new understandings and novel, even startling, adventures, even though your explorations might better be described as of the armchair variety. There is much to be found on the inside of your mind and in the deep contemplation of your most sincere values. You are stabilizing sacred approaches to service in accord with spiritual concepts on natural law that arise from deep within you. You are also potentially headed for a mystical union with a like-minded partner, or partners, leading to concerted action vis-a-vis these bottom-line values that you are beginning to lean into. Your focus this month on resources, values, and finances has you looking for the deep meaning. This in-depth research involving inner priorities takes on an idealistic glow, and has an unusual capacity for bearing fruit in strange and wonderful ways.
The following was written by our resident monthly columnist Elodie St-Onge-Aubut of Ninth House Astrology
You are currently in the process of reframing what is possible for you especially in terms of travel or learning opportunities. The projects that you put in place in the last few years might unfortunately not be possible anymore due to travel restrictions or your own changes. You are faced with the arduous task of totally rethinking some of your long-term goals. The world has opened up considerably since early April but your priorities have shifted.
The month of August begins with an extensive list of things to get done. Dealing with logistical issues, writing emails, running errands for family members, and making phone calls seem to fill up most of your time. Venus is still in Gemini in the financial sector your chart, which means that a lot of the restructuring currently taking place is connected to your income. You want independence and you can have it. However you need to apply all of your ingenuity on creating new opportunities for yourself.
The Full Moon in Aquarius on August 3rd illuminates your vocational sector, your calling, and your place in society. This Full Moon is forming a T-square with Uranus in your sign and the Sun in Leo or your home and family sector. You might be feeling particularly restless, and there could be tension between your personal desires, your ambitions, and what is expected from you at home. Sudden intuitive realizations are also quite possible. The tension is natural of course, due to the current state of the world, and also partly due to shifting priorities. What was important to you last year is quickly becoming irrelevant as you follow new exciting ideas. With Mercury in Cancer and Venus in Gemini now moving direct you are starting to see things flowing in the right direction after a long hiatus.
Mercury enters Leo on August 4th emphasizing your roots, your home, and your family. Then, on the 7th, Venus enters Cancer softening your interactions with siblings and close friends. Venus in Cancer until the first week of September will bring a gentle influence to your communications. August could therefore be your opportunity to mend or restore frazzled connections. Mercury in Leo trines Chiron in Aries on August 9th, giving you direct access to some of your more hidden reactionary patterns. You can start to acknowledge and more consciously express your needs for independence.
Mercury squaring Uranus in your sign on the 10th can bring a last-minute change of plans. It is also, next morning, the Last Quarter Moon in Taurus, carrying an emotional charge to your sign. Be ready for surprises and don’t dig your heels in too deep. You may be prompted to change direction at a moment's notice. It could be harder to compromise, especially if you are feeling pressured.
Mars currently in Aries highlights hidden stressors that are difficult to identify. It's important to locate the sources of irritation at this time in order to remediate. Building tensions and power struggles are possible leading up to the 12th and 13th, as Mars in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. It's your cue to be proactive by finding physical outlets to release your pressure valve.
Mid-month, also, Venus and the Moon in Cancer are in square with Chiron in Aries, which potentially brings delicate conversations to the surface. This is a moody and emotional signature that can bring up difficult topics.
Mercury in Leo unites with the Sun for its superior conjunction on the 17th. The momentum carries you through to the New Moon in Leo on the 18th, when the Sun and Mercury trine Mars- Eris in Aries, and aspect Saturn in Capricorn, offering a massive dose of energy for your projects, and strong commitments, and yet also limitations. This could be good for solving lingering issues, and for bringing solutions and clarity relating to your home.
