Uranus in your sign goes retrograde Thursday, August 19, and allows life to calm down. You will feel an unprecedented peace, and implementing image (through lifestyle) changes this August are crucial for chez Taurus. Long overdue, they bring joy.
And you thought it was all over. NOT! Take your own steps, in your own time, and you’re ready to take more risks. There follows a time of relaxation 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.
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.
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 thousand.
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. Hold out a hand to one who asks for it. For some of you lucky ones, this brings a true friend (back) into your life.
There is a terrific line up in your fourth house. Your most personal house. In here you have:
Life-giving, awesome Sun
Brilliant thought-planet Mercury as of Tuesday, July 27
Sexy, powerful Mars
A generous new Leo Moon Sunday, August 8
Security coming for these areas:
Your real family
Ends and beginnings
Your sense of safety
Your garden or land
Your opinion of yourself outside work
We are all waiting for you, you beautiful Bull…Applauding your (re) entrance. Two full Moons in your tenth career house guarantee this. The first on Friday, July 23, the second directly following it, on Sunday, August 22.
With the full Moons 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 Moons are in Aquarius in your tenth house of your life path and reputation.
You have sensed all the promise in your career – this is good change – but you have been waiting a while for it. It has been stalled and halted. Now get ready.
Chiron retrograde in your twelfth house brings up the total opposite – your most private side, which no one else sees.
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.
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.
The wound is the place where the Light enters you. – Rumi. Born under your sister sign of Libra on September 30, 1207.
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 in the fourth house actually serves to strip bare the house it is transiting. Now transiting your home and 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.
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. Taurus hangs on longer than anyone.
The end of August is a time for play 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.
Work delays can stir you to irritation but thank goodness this frustration will be over.
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.
With loved ones, you want to know there is a future and that you can plan on it. 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.

So much rain, so much life like the swollen sky of this black August. My sister, the sun, broods in her yellow room and won’t come out.
But the poem for this August, 2021, for you and your horoscope this month, is An August Midnight by Thomas Hardy.
A shaded lamp and a waving blind,
And the beat of a clock from the distant floor.
Brilliant. As are you, my dear Taurus. Happy August!
