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. Home and property play a huge part in this. (You have generous Vesta in your second money house so you will not lose out.)
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, brilliant Mercury, your ruler beautiful Venus (going into retrograde already on Saturday, July 22) and a new generous Leo Moon on Wednesday, August 16, the same day adoring Juno enters your fourth house. All positively affecting your home, property, and work spaces. There will be extra offers on hand which you did not expect.
Emphasis now in these areas:
Your early family – and roots
Endings and beginnings
Your sense of safety
Your real estate
Your opinion of yourself outside work
We are all waiting for you, you beautiful Bull…Applauding your (re) entrance. The full Aquarius social Moon Friday, July 27, in your tenth house of career and reputation guarantees this.
With an Aquarius full Moon 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.
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.
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.
The retrograde of your ruler Venus (July 22 to September 3) 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.
You will feel good. You will be forgiven for wanting to act like a couch potato at times this month. You need rest in your (newish) home.
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.
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.
