Monthly horoscope Taurus August 2018
Written by Kurt Franz
August – Expect a Turnaround
The sun will still be in Leo, forming a square that’s sure to result in obstacles. This position will persist through August 23rd, after which the situation will change once again as the sun enters Virgo to create a favorable trine. Expect life to return to “normal” once again. You’ll feel a surge in vitality and a return of your personal initiative.
Mercury is more stubborn than the sun, and will remain in Leo throughout the entire month. However, the square it will form won’t in any way affect your mental capabilities; on the contrary, your brain will be firing on all cylinders. Just be as diplomatic as possible in all your endeavors so as to avoid any resentment as you will tend to want to implement your plans with an iron will during this time. Remember that everyone has a right to their own opinion.
In the Mood to Flirt
You can expect some positive news from Venus. It will still be in Virgo at the start of the month, which will put Taurus in a positive and cheerful mood. You will attract others, seek out companionship and conversations and look forward to all the good things in life. This would be a great time to flirt, and you might find gifts or small material advantages coming your way. When Venus enters Libra on August 6th it will form a quincunx aspect, indicating it’s time for a re-orientation. You should consider whether this is the case for you and, if so, strive to make a change. This might be a change in your relationships, for instance. Just talking things over can work wonders sometimes; all you have to do is find the courage to do it.
Mars will be remaining in Aquarius through August 13th, after which it will move into Capricorn and end its long square position; for you this will mean the onset of a more energetic and spirited time as it forms a trine.
