Taurus August 2017 Monthly Horoscope
On August 25th, your ruler, Venus, enters fire sign Leo, and you can enjoy spending more time at home, with the people you view of as family, in the places you know best, and with the people who support you. In love, you can focus on an emotional connection with the people you care about, and crave emotional understanding from them.
On August 3rd, Uranus turns retrograde (appears to move backward) in fire sign Aries, the sign before yours, and over the coming months, you may struggle with making changes and letting go of issues from the past or subconscious issues, and you may feel restless but in a subconscious way. Don’t let that internal restlessness get the better of you and get in touch with your inner guide.
On August 25th, Saturn ends his retrograde in fire sign Sagittarius, and over the last few months, you may have struggled with deeply held issues, transformations, and serious matters, but now with the retrograde ending, you can feel less stifled and restricted, and work on clearing out the seriousness to make room for some light.
August brings with it a Mercury retrograde starting August 12th in fellow earth sign Virgo. A planet is called retrograde when it appears to be moving backward; it isn’t actually moving backward, it only looks that way from our view here on Earth. Retrogrades can throw things off, and with this retrograde, you can experience issues with your loved ones, feel more desperate for attention and affection, or get attention for the wrong reason. You may be more dramatic and immature, and need to work on tending to your heart and finding a creative outlet for your emotions. The Sun enters Virgo on August 22nd while Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, and brings more attention to the retrograde energy, but also shines a light where we need to see to help improve the situation. Mercury is retrograde in Virgo until August 31st, and goes back into Leo, and you may feel off emotionally, have problems at home or with family, or feel that you hit bottom with something. Mercury retrogrades in Leo for the first week of September, and we can start getting back to normal mid-September.
August also brings the second set of eclipses for 2017. Eclipses are similar to new and full moons, but amplified, impacting for up to six months before and after. Lunar eclipses are similar to full moons, and solar eclipses are similar to new moons. On August 7th, a lunar eclipse occurs in air sign Aquarius, and this can be an ultimate eclipse for reaping what you’ve sown when it comes to your goals and ambitions. If you’ve done things right, you can experience big rewards and opportunities, but if you haven’t or your heart isn’t in it, you may question things and think you should change direction. You can focus more on your direction and where you want the path you’re on to lead you. You may feel you hit a high point with something. On August 21st, a solar eclipse occurs in Leo, and you can work to improve matters at home, with your living situation, or with family or the people you think of as family. They may get an opportunity that you support them with, and you can work on both giving and receiving support. You may benefit from staying inside of your comfort zone, and you can work on starting something important from the ground up.
