Taurus | Horoscope Expert


Apr 20 – May 20

Someone sees right through you today and it's a humbling experience. That's the good part. Learning that your charm is nothing more than the sparkle of fool's gold will change you in ways the real thing couldn't. It goes without saying it's change for the better.

You are desperate to take a business trip and, happily, the details of an upcoming excursion are finalized on Monday. Where you're going doesn't even matter. You're looking forward to a change of perspective. You're also looking forward to getting out of dodge because tension around the office – as evidenced by events midweek – is at an unusual high. Thursday and Friday, share your frustrations with your most trustworthy coworker. You'll be surprised by what a casual conversation reveals. This weekend, if you find yourself shopping for work clothes, don't buy the first shirt you see.

August is for getting past old blocks in your mindset that hold you back. Here’s a gift: Your ruling planet Venus trines Jupiter on August 8. You have two positive creative influences that are guaranteed spirit enhancers.

On the eleventh, Jupiter's direct turn means fewer delays for the good stuff. In this light, if you thought a “direct motion while being unconventional” Uranus made things happen too quickly, you’ll love the planet’s retrograde now. Okay, half a second slower, but an improvement. Also on that day, Leo Mercury reinforces your communication and thinking strength.

The sun conjoins Venus under an Aquarius full moon between August 14 and August 15. The stunning combination lends great insight into which targets are worth your efforts.

The twenty-first is a lucky day to search and send out resumes if job hunting. Schedule interviews and meetings under fortunate stars.

From August 26 through August 28, ruling Venus trines Taurus Uranus to encourage an almost-guaranteed successful creative risk as well. You are good to go if you dare.

The August 30 efficient and earthy Virgo new moon helps you utilize resources properly in the 30 days that follow the phase. Don’t get too settled, however. Instead, get ready for changes in September. The positive powers of nature urge you forward and outward.
