<< Previous Week
Taurus: (Apr. 20-May 21): As your astrology horoscope week begins Taurus, the planet of communications and ruler of your money zone Mercury is slowing down. As Mercury slows down be aware of your thoughts, the information coming to you, and what’s happening around you and why are you procrastinating so much? As Mercury transit through your 5th house of love, romance, and self-confidence zone you want to keep your attitude in check. Taurus wants to be a stand out on the job, and is very competitive this week. If you feel you can’t stand out you might get upset. This sector also rules children and you are just as intent on having your children stand out in a crowd too. In love, you want to be noticed and perhaps meet new people. You could be thrown into a situation where you have to get know new people. You will go over these things again and again throughout the month of September especially during the 3rd Saturn-Neptune square. So blend in, don’t take things to heart and move on when a situation isn’t working out. It’s important not to put things off, or there could be losses and expensive repairs during the Saturn-Neptune square that plague you through November. Your inability or reluctance to spend on repairs impacts your peace of mind. The planet Mercury is after all the journalist planet, that gatherer of information. Mercury rules the sign of Virgo and is exalted in the sign of Virgo at 15° (where Mercury goes direct next month) the sign where it’s transiting now. In Virgo, Mercury needs to grasp and have a full understanding of everything before moving on. This is an extended period of time to get it right! Do a good job at your work, learn your job, take care of your health, stay organized, on top of things, and fix things. Don’t put things off or procrastinate. Get out and meet people if you’re single and make sure they have a good character.
The planet Mars in Sagittarius is Out of Bounds (Aug. 8-Oct.30). That means it’s time to put yourself out there in different ways and try something new. Think outside the box. Mars is fun in Sagittarius, your solar sector of joint finances, intimacy and overcoming obstacles and financial troubles; exuberant, active and enjoys new experiences, putting him or herself out there, enjoying all things religious, educational, spiritual, foreign and adventurous of course. In your solar sector of joint finances, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Your credit, ability to manage investments, and finances, and get out of debt requires some sacrifice and work, but is very possible. Taurus is a fixed sign and both Mercury and Mars demand flexibility and quick moves.
This suggests that everything that you do now has to be all encompassing, and comprehensive. You have to do a good job. It makes you want to understand things completely and thoroughly before you accept them as true. As Mercury in Virgo conjoins the planet Jupiter in Virgo at 26°, in your solar sector of love, romance, self-confidence. investments and your ability to win and dominate situations; there’s an element of luck, but also a stronger desire to grasp the bigger picture, and really understand something. If you are single approach the dating scene methodically. Work on dating up. Meaning date those who you share the same intellectual, education and financial abilities and background.
As the Sun enters the mutable sign of Virgo (Monday Aug. 22nd 12:38 pm EDT) you’ll want to be more flexible because the sign of Virgo is a mutable sign. The Sun in Virgo solarizes your romance zone, your competitive drive and your strong desire to do a good job and get noticed. Avoid excessive criticism, being too picky and cranky. The Sun here helps you to see your own mistakes and how you can improve. Your health, diet, exercise take a priority now, as well your job and work. It’s still a good time to acquire more clothes!
The planet of action or reactions Mars in Sagittarius conjoins Saturn in Sagittarius at 9° your solar sector of letting go, giving up and starting over. You can feel like giving up on your job if you can’t get enough recognition, an investment, or on romance if it’s not going anywhere. This can be a strong transit because Mars is in new degrees now, (Mars retrograded in April 2016 at 8°53’) so this brings new energy to an old Saturn issue from way back in December, 2016. Of course Sagittarius rules religious ideologies and foreigners. We have only to look back at the Spring to figure out what’s going on here when Mars was trying to catch up to Saturn then didn’t, now he has. This is a big powerhouse of energy and depending on your natal birth charts will need to take precautions. It can be violent and devastating. You’ve spent almost a year feeling like giving up, now don’t.
During the 4th Quarter Moon in Gemini at 2°11’ your financial zone and money zone, it’s time to wind things down. How? Maybe through thinking things through, getting your thoughts together, a new approach, or communicating less. 4th Quarter Moons are good for waiting things out, observing, pulling things together or collecting on your past efforts, works and deeds. There’s a New Moon Solar Eclipse coming up and you will surely start out or be led in a new direction. That being said an eclipse such as this New Moon Solar Eclipse on Sept. 1st is in effect up to 10 days before it occurs and 6 months after and is visible from central Africa, Madagascar and the southern Indian Ocean. Save a little, avoid spending too much on children, dating and romantic situations or your hobbies.
Romance takes center stage this week as the planet of love, money, wealth and beauty, Venus in Virgo inconjuncts Uranus RX in Aries 24°, for you Taurus natives this is very important, and there’s an awkward moment. Uranus rules age differences too. It can bring an embarrassing moment when you’re out with a new love and you bump into an ex. Or an uncomfortable moment of aggression when you or someone else jumps on something you said or did; more awkward moments! You don’t want to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and be accused of something inappropriate.
The ruler of men, the masculine counterpart in a female’s chart, the husband, boyfriend or masculine in a relationship, the planet Mars in Sagittarius squares Neptune RX in Pisces at 10°. This is another indication that many of you are walking around feeling guilty. Guilty over what. Or you’re feeling that you can’t get a hold on your finances, why? You’re a Taurus, that Suns sign rules money. This is a charged up transit where the lack of restraint (on Mar’s part) is possible. On the other hand, someone could be acting sketchy or evasive. There’s 3rd party involvement in some relationships and maybe cheating. It packs a punch when flirting is going on, leading to a “hands on” situation. Avoid wasting your money.
As Venus in Virgo conjoins Jupiter in Virgo at 27° in your romance, children, creative and winning zone, things turn out ok this week in spite of some crazy situations mostly due to fear or angst. Neither Venus nor Jupiter is able to be themselves in the sign of Virgo, so everyone manages, just manages and somehow it all works out. You can stand out in a crowd this week. You can find love and you can have a fun life.
As the planet of communications Mercury in Virgo conjoins Venus in Virgo 28°, he asks Venus in Virgo “What are you doing inside Taurus, 5th house?” “Are you bringing love, a child, a big win, more self-confidence recognition, or are you uncovering Taurus talents?” The planet of communications Mercury in wants to know what’s up romantically, or financially or why are you procrastinating, postponing or putting things off?
At weeks end the planet of love, money, wealth, beauty and matrimony Venus your ruler enters the sign of Libra your solar sector of work, employment, helpfulness, diet, health and conflicts, the sign she rules. Be diplomatic and get along with everyone. This favors love, romance, beauty, wealth, engagements and happiness and employment for Taurus.
