July’s end brings a blow up, a 90 degree square off between Uranus in your sign and a royal personality in your fourth house of home and family. You’re in the right – so just cry it out, use your words, and all’s well that ends well. Love hasn’t deserted you – quite the opposite. You are adored.
But with Uranus now, you attract some crazy and startling vibes, like shots out of the blue. Ferdinand the Bull prefers peace and smelling the flowers, so walk away when you can. Those with a gripe need to be put in their place. Implementing lifestyle changes this August are crucial for calm chez Taurus. Long overdue, they bring joy. Go forward with them, whatever doubts or fears arise!
And you thought it was all over. NOT! Take your own steps, in your own time, and by mid-August you’re ready to take more risks. There follows a time of peace in your life. Enjoy, and use the freedom to love yourself. Treat yourself and do what you like.
The confused puzzlement of loved ones has been crazy, yes. But then, I have never seen so many retrogrades in my life. EIGHT.
That’s an insane number. Usually it is two or three, or even four.
Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto, Uranus, Chiron, Vesta. All in retrograde. This is why everyone is so combative. But you know what, Taurus? You’re going to use this to make your life FABULOUS. How? By flowing with it, staying home, not fighting the tides.
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You must see every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat. Getting it right this time.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
August is a strange and transformational month for you. It is not even the barest shade of grey. It is pure blacks and pure whites.
Stark outlines of what you are, what you used to be, and what you can still be.
The Ghosts of Christmas Past and of Christmas Future come gently knocking at your door. Which part of you is demanding attention now?
This will not be a scary experience, dear one, but a mind-expanding and ultimately creative and profitable one.
Keep a notebook by your bedside, just in case.
You will be thanking me after your first million.
Hey, you can afford to be generous now – you have fought the great battle and survived. The world is – or should be – at your feet. Call on your brilliant instincts and understanding to relax now. Hold out a hand to one who asks for it. For some of you lucky ones, this brings a true soul mate (back) into your life.
There is a terrific line up in your fourth house. Your most personal house. In here you have the life-giving Sun, wise Pallas, Mercury in retrograde from July 26 to August 19, and a solar eclipse new moon on Saturday, August 11. All positively affecting your home, property, and work spaces. There will be extra offers on hand which you did not expect.
Security coming for these areas:
Your real family
Ends and beginnings
Your sense of safety
Your garden or property
Your real estate
Your opinion of yourself outside work
Insecurity stops plaguing your house of friends and you are invited to come in everywhere!
You are being given the opportunity to shine in public again, and you want to look your best!
We are all waiting for you, you beautiful Bull…Applauding your (re) entrance. The lunar eclipse full Moon Friday, July 27, in your tenth career house guarantees this.
It is the longest eclipse of the century.
Extra power and success is provided by a knockout Mars in the same house. At this time closer to the earth than it has been since 2003.
With the full Moon and lunar eclipse coming up in your tenth career house you want to be ready for your close up. I can see how this has got your mind racing: is this for real? Can I trust that I will be heard and that my needs will be met? Is there a future? All YES. A professional matter will be resolved.
This full Moon lunar eclipse is in Aquarius in your tenth house of your life path and reputation. An eclipse means change. What kind of change?
You have sensed all the promise in your career – this is good change – but it is as if you have been waiting a while for it. Get ready.
Those around you, in close proximity, your siblings or an old friend who is like a sibling – may be acting strangely. But really, they are showing you their truth. Remember what writer Maya Angelou, who has her Chiron (the wounded healer) in your sign of Taurus says: When people show you who they are the first time, believe them.
Chiron can only heal by dying.
Remember the myth?
He gets shot in the thigh by Hercules (it’s an accident!) and he begs the gods to put him out of his misery. But because Chiron is immortal, his fate is to suffer for eternity.
When the gods let him die, let him cease being immortal, the wound that can never heal – heals.
Similarly, with you.
When you let a pain that feels like it’s been in there forever, go – it goes. When you stop feeling trapped by someone’s words and actions, you will give yourself your freedom.
All that your fourth house rules right now:
Abilities and traits passed down to you, mostly from your father
Your nurturing others emotionally
Your opinion of yourself separate from the business world
Look at the wounded dreams you have in any of the above ruled by the fourth house. You need to let them go now. So you can get to an even greater place.
When Chiron is finally allowed to die, he goes one better. The gods make him into a constellation in the sky!
That’s what you get when you do the work on your wound.
So let that wound die in peace, and go on to the new beautiful place you may not even have imagined.
See it all, yourself as eternal traveler, the world as your playground.
See your current situation differently. And it will be.
Mercury retrograde (July 26 to August 19) in the fourth house actually serves to strip bare the house it is transiting. Now transiting your home and early family. You see what seems to be, what you’d like it to be, and then you see what is underneath that, and its motivation.
Practically and materially it’s all GO ahead!
You are more in control than ever before. Even if things do not go your way! You are carving your own path, and a lot of responsibility rests on your shoulders.
So let go what needs to be let go. It is hard for you to leave the past behind. It will be an effort. But you will succeed.
The rest of August is a time for play and spinning out of control and for making your day-to-day more enjoyable. Also for learning lessons concerning your work, and, to a lesser extent, travel.
Your ruling planet, planet of love and beauty, Venus, is awesomely aspected most of August and this gives you a golden glow as well as protects you. You will feel good.
You will be getting “out there”, making your presence known.
Work delays can stir you to irritation but thank goodness this frustration is over after August 19.
And a ceasing of the difficult changes and challenging transformations you face being torn between what you feel you should do and then what you want to do.
In terms of your Beeg Plans Ahead the big picture will be extra clear after August 26, and then it is clear for you to move forward!
Only warning of August: mid-month, anxiety arises about shared resources. Money, property, leases, and the such. Don’t push and you will go much farther.
Time to call a truce to the doubting and worrying generally, dear Taurus. The voices have been pretty loud – in relationships, too, particularly concerning your security in relationships – I can hear them even as I type.
With loved ones, you want to know there is a future and that you can plan on it. Chiron, the wound that never heals, is ready to heal, babee.
When you let a pain that feels like it’s been in there forever, go – it goes.
You need to let it go now. So you get to an even better place.
That’s what you get when you do the work on your wound.
So let that wound die in peace, and go on to the new beautiful place you may not even have imagined. See it all differently. And it will be. Whatever you’ve been running from, you can finally stop to enjoy. Time to smell the flowers, like lovely Ferdinand the Bull.
Every moment this August is indeed a new moment. What did Heroclitus say? “You could not step twice into the same river, for the water is ever flowing.”
For the bull, who likes repetition, this is powerful – wonderful – change.
Is it time for your own private session?
And what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with YOU, Taurus.
With love, Madalyn
