Diana's Monthly Taurus Forecast for August 2016
Until the 23rd your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past in the present or sharing. In some respects your gaze will tend to be more inwards and you may be pondering more, or feeling things more deeply. Listen to your instincts!
Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. There’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young people, lovers or pets. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
Until the 6th Venus beams a friendly, sociable light into the root of your chart. This can manifest in various ways. Overall, it encourages a more harmonious time at home and you welcome others into your space or are more the visitor to others. Or, it could be a venue where you all meet up. It could be a good time to appreciate family or tribal connections, or maybe you like where you are located. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside. Good for property search or relocation as long as other aspects are favorable.
From the 6th the position of Venus can mean a sociable more playful period perhaps making new friends or enjoying old associations. Maybe a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or more creative ways and there may be more frequent connections with children, younger people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying so, leisure, performance type activities are emphasized. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child.
From the 3rd Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So that may mean a de-clutter, or some kind of re-set is in the pipe-line. Or maybe ditching an ailing, stale or chronic situation thus clearing the decks for new beginnings . Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position emphasizes something shared, or over which you do not have sole control. Then a shift, a transition as emotions or intuition drive a change. You could be more sensitive to feelings or needs of others and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or strategic in your actions. For some Mars here may mean an intense or sizzley interchange with someone special.
From the 23rd there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play or creativity or empowering activities. Or to be more involved with those in party mood whether as a participant or a facilitator. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
Saturn is now in your 8th house. The 8th house is a transition house which usually involves clearing the decks to make space for new life. This may involve joint property or financial interests, or your own bad habits. You’ll become more aware over this time frame of who/what is of value, and in the process, you may have to let go of an aspect of a previous perspective, set-up or contract so that life can become more healthy, happy and fulfilling. Sometimes ditching or modifying a prior arrangement in favour of one which is financially, emotionally or physically more comfortable can happen but it will be gradual and you may still have to live within the parameters of the previous set-up for a while. Or maybe there’s a removal of certain resources or support system or lifestyle and you feel this as a lack. Either way you will slowly be transitioning into a fresh perspective which is closer to your true priorities.
Taureans born 28th April-1st May or with 9-11 degrees rising, or, will feel this energy the most over this period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is necessary to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused manner. Because of the long transit of Neptune through your 11th house, your view of some friends or associates may be distorted and you either over-value or under-value their true meaning in your life. Here is where you are most easily led into a false way of thinking. A special group you are involved with may cause you to sacrifice more than you should, or maybe they do not appreciate your talents enough or evaluate your situation properly. Certain so-called friends or group members may take advantage of you and you are blind to others who are more genuinely on your side or with whom you are more secure. Saturn close to Neptune by degree will help you clear the decks of false, negative or draining influences coming through friends or group contacts. Saturn also gives you the chance to become active in a good cause or to bring about social reform).
Jupiter, planet of potential abundance and growth will very positively influence your Sun sign until next September. This is a time when you may be appreciated more for yourself in a playful or romantic sense. At times it will encourage a more spontaneous, even self-indulgent, energy as you feel more the centre of attention. There may be admiring glances coming your way or you may be in the mood to take a risk or a gamble. You may grow through accessing creative or leisure activities which empower you and you shine in your own unique way. Children, animals and leisure or entertainment activities will be emphasized.
Taureans born from 11th-19th May or with 21-29 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
