Taurus ♉ August 2020 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


Throughout the whole of July, not a single planet moved from where they were at the start of the month, with the Sun the only movement from one area of your chart to another in order to create any kind of variety. At the same time, there was a degree of pressure, making this a very different month. Mercury, who not only spent the whole of July but the whole of June as well in your communication sector will spend time in three areas of your chart this month. As Mercury determines where our head is focused, this brings some much needed variety.

After wrapping up a two month visit to your communication sector on 5th August, Mercury will turn his attention onto home and family matters before returning to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 20th August. The Sun will make that same transition, as it does at this time each year on 23rd August. However, not before a New Moon on 19th August will create an opportunity for new beginnings on the home, family and/or property fronts. Meanwhile Venus, who also spent the whole of not only July but June in the same place but May as well, is finally on the move.

Venus will leave your income sector on 8th August, wrapping up a visit that began on 4th April. Normally here for just 24 days, Venus will be working to make her final days as lucrative as possible. She will get a little help from the Moon, who will not only move through your career sector from 3rd August to 5th August but will create a Full Moon on 4th August. It was a month earlier that Saturn left and with Juno now in her last full month in your work sector, this could be a catalyst or trigger across the income, work and career fronts.

LoveTaurus August 2020 Love Horoscope

So far this year there has been no planetary activity in either your romantic or relationship sectors but that is about to change, on the romantic front at least. To start with, it is business as usual and the main focus is on communication, which your relationships will benefit from. Here there is a chance to benefit from the fact that Venus and Mercury, the planets of love and communication are both running behind schedule because of retrograde phases. This means that while the Sun left your communication sector last month, held back by a retrograde phase Mercury won’t leave until 5th August.

Mercury returned in late May for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit aimed at getting the communication lines open in a way that only the planet of communication can. With no planetary activity in your relationship sector, this has ensured that at least the communication lines are open. However, held back by her own retrograde phase Venus, the planet of love won’t even return to your communication sector until 8th August, where she will spend the rest of the month. Unlike Mercury, who is focused on communication across the board, Venus’ mandate is to give your heart and your relationships a voice.

The Moon’s transit through your relationship sector from 23rd August to 25th August will take advantage of this. However, it is on 19th August that things start happening on the romantic front and it will start coming thick and fast from then. Romantically charged lunar vibes will be in play until 21st August, which means that the Moon will be here when Mercury returns on 20th August, to begin the first planetary activity in your romantic sector this year. It is just two days after the Moon leaves that the Sun will return, turning the solar spotlight onto matters of the heart and all things romantic as he does at this time every year.

MoneyTaurus August 2020 Money Horoscope

For the first time since the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses in early May, you are about to get a real sense of their influence, without the distraction of having planetary activity in your income sector. By the time the North Node returned to your income sector in early May Venus, the planet of money had already been here for a month and a retrograde turn means that while the Sun and Mercury have come and gone since then, she is still here. Unlike your financial sector, where the South Node returned at the same time and there is no planetary activity, there has been constant planetary activity on the income front.

Until she leaves on 8th August Venus will be working to make her final days count and that means attracting income potential where she can, helping you to reap what has already been sown and where that is not possible to leave you with high expectations and a lucrative sense of direction. However, Venus’ departure will also end all planetary activity in your income sector and that is when the lunar nodes will be the only influence in play on both sides of the financial fence but also, for the first time since they returned more evenly weighted.

The lunar nodes or eclipse points are always in opposition and with the North Node in your income sector and the South Node in your financial sector until January 2022, they are constantly working to maintain a balance between money coming in and money going out. Until now this has been weighted towards money coming in and while that is something that you will continue to benefit from, you will also benefit from a chance to achieve a better balance. At the end of the day, no amount of money coming in will benefit you if it flows out the other end. The North Node will continue to attract money coming in but the South Node will become more effective in stopping it from flowing out again.

CareerTaurus August 2020 Career Horoscope

After a bit of work tension or job pressure last month when the asteroid Juno found herself under pressure from Mars, apart from a reminder to work smarter things are a lot more settled this month. After returning to your work sector in November for what should have been a two month visit Juno, the queen of commitment found herself thrust into the big time by her alliance with Mars and Saturn in your career sector and with Venus in your income sector. While Mars and Saturn are no longer there, Venus’ four month visit to your income sector will finally run its course on 8th August and the timing couldn’t be more auspicious.

Venus and Juno have moved into a friendly aspect three times over recent months, creating a real bond between income and job matters. Saturn was part of that mix until he retrograded back out of your career sector early next month. It is fitting then that the Moon should move through your career sector from 3rd August to 5th August, moving into a friendly aspect to both Venus and Juno as it moves through. Saturn might be gone but this is one last chance to bring income, work and career forces together. What makes this even more auspicious is the Full Moon this will create on 4th August, with the potential to act as a catalyst on all three fronts.

Juno is in her last full month in your work sector but won’t leave until after Mercury returns early next month, followed by the Sun later next month. That Juno will be able to hand over the reins to Mercury is significant, for when she arrived in November Mars was still there, which means that there hasn’t been a moment this year that your work sector has been empty. While Juno is only an asteroid and it can be argued that has only kept the seat warm, as the queen of commitment she has also maintained the same sense of resolve and commitment you began the year with and that there will be no cold start next month and that is a big deal.
