August Horoscopes

by Henry Seltzer

Taurus Taurus Horoscope (April 20 - May 20)
Fixed Earth. Your ruling planet is Venus.

This is a month of dreaming your purpose into being, Taurus. From the very beginning of August you find yourself wandering among sacred spaces of otherworldly energies, while a week or so later, leading up to the mid-month Lunar Eclipse in your career sector, the practical side of your motivation holds sway. The good news is that these different impulses can work together quite successfully when you remember that this physical life is only a game that while you are playing for keeps is not to be taken so seriously that you exclude magical possibility from your process.

As the month begins, you are enjoying a nebulous freedom of action, honoring your ideals in a fresh new way, and responding to the deep call within you of family ties and attention paid to the roots of your being. With the August 1st Solar Eclipse New Moon taking place in your sector of home and family concerns, you are likely to be sticking close to home at this time, if not in actual physical presence, then psychologically. This is an amazing period for you, when your highest ideals are stimulated and when you are on the verge of breakthrough at each moment concerning what you intend for your future self. There is a fine line between idealism and self-deception and you must also beware at this time of too great a detachment from concrete practicality. Fortunately ñ or perhaps in the way of coming down ñ you are pulled back to reality at the time of the First Quarter Moon, taking place on Friday, August 8th. This Sun-Moon square that comes along between the eclipses represents a moment of tension in your process, and a time when you are deadly serious regarding your self-expression. Over the next few days you might feel stifled somewhat, as your ruler Venus conjuncts taskmaster Saturn, which counter-balances the wild-eyed enthusiasm that is also prevalent in your cosmic make-up right now. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of Saturday, August 16th, emphasizes the ideal once more, but now tempered with a dose of practicality so that you have the best of both worlds. This is a time of balance and of the full-flowering of the impulse that originated with the New Moon and that has brought you thus far in your process. You are also empowered to share your vision with others around you now, so that speaking and writing about your feelings will be very rewarding for you at this time. The remainder of the month represents a process of assessment of where you are headed in your life these days and in contrast, where you would like to be. There may be a series of somewhat painful recognitions that will come over you as you make adjustments to your vision, but much of what you imagined at the start of this period will also remain intact, as a goal at least. You will be getting a better handle on what you truly want over the next several months and refining your sense of purpose as you do.
