2020 is already a bit more than half-over, and August is here to remind you that you’ve made it through A LOT, Taurus. During a summer that’s felt unlike any other summer, the stars say it’s time to let go of some of the more challenging experiences you’ve had since the pandemic began. You have a tendency to hold onto things – even the harder things – with all your strength.
The Full Moon in Aquarius arrives on the 3rd, inspiring you to release unmet career ambitions that date back to January and February, before our world abruptly changed. This lunation shows you how to let go without losing hope, because there is plenty to be optimistic about, even if things will look different than you imagined six months ago. The Sun warms up your domestic zone for the first three weeks of the month, giving you every excuse to luxuriate in being at home. Venus, your lovely ruling planet, finally leaves your money zone on the 7th, after a rare, extra long stay (thanks to the retrograde of May and June). Now she’s caught up to speed, and she’ll sashay through your communication zone for the next few weeks, sweetening up your conversations.
Use the New Moon in Leo (on the 18th) to refresh, redesign and set powerful, positive intentions on the home front. This can relate to your family, your ancestral roots, or the actual structure that you live in. The Sun dives into your house of romance and pleasure on the 22nd, where it’ll heat up your love life for the next four weeks. If you’re a single Bull, this is the best time of the year to start swiping again – because socially distanced dating is actually kind of romantic in an old-school way.

July is here to make up for June’s challenges – and it’ll likely feel even better as the month goes on. Eclipse season ends after the intense Full Moon in your travel zone on the 5th. This is where you can let go of any unrealised dreams thwarted by the pandemic during the last six months.
If you had big plans to explore the world and couldn’t make them happen, this is a lovely moment to remind yourself that this is just a pause – not a complete stoppage. You’ve learned a lot about your relationship with the world and your opinions have shifted so much during the last two years. As this eclipse series officially ends, embrace that and reflect on the ways that your worldview has transformed. Mercury Retrograde ends in your communication zone on the 12th – and that’s a beautiful thing indeed. If messaging has been a hot mess since early June, there’s a good reason for that.
Focus on how you can deliver your truth without mincing words but also without coming off as overly stubborn – that’s the course-correction the universe encourages. On the 20th, the New Moon in Cancer (the second such lunation since June) is the perfect opportunity to set intentions for talking, thinking and texting. How do you want to use your voice during the next six months to best build upon what you’ve learned during the intense eclipse series of the last two years?
Basic facts have transformed into powerful wisdom, and now you can share it with the world via long-form writing, podcasting, or just a series of super fine Insta posts. Your career soars once the Sun powers up your professional zone starting on the 20th – this lasts for the next four weeks.
