July is definitely going to be more on the 'intense' side than many of you would like. You're not usually a sensitive sign, but there you go - you can be and you will be. Some of you may even go so far as to shun people and social activities so that you can 'hole up' at home and take solace in your TV or books. While not the easiest and most comfortable month, July is a good time for you to recharge your batteries and work out the best way forward for you during the 2nd part of 2019.
One of the most important things to do this month is to not dig yourself a huge hole and then be unable to get out of it. In other words, avoid saying "yes" to everything and stick to a solid "maybe" or "if I can" response. Venus your ruler spends the majority of the month in caring Cancer and your friendship zone. There are those certain people who you can always rely on to boost your spirits and make you feel happy - no matter what the circumstances. They also know when to push you and when to back off.
Career wise, a Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Capricorn, your fellow earth sign and 9th house of higher education and thinking lights up the sky July 16. This lunar alert will signal that it's definitely time for you to rethink exactly where you are going work wise and if it's time to make that 180 degree turnaround or stay on the path you are already on. Many of you will finally receive the acknowledgement you are seeking from a higher-up, which will signal an important and very positive development in your career for the month and beyond.
Cosmic wrap up: Both the Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 2 and the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn July 16 combined with a retrograde mercury July 7 - 31 help to create a highly defensive attitude that promises to overwhelm you at times. Normally you don't take any criticism or snarky remarks to heart. July is the exception. Retreat! Don't get caught up in silly 'he said, she said' arguments. Head back to your couch!

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
November is set to be a good month for you bulls. Jupiter, the biggest planet in the zodiac and the celestial body responsible for opportunity, hopes and wishes sets off for his home state of Sagittarius on the 9th. In your 8th house of joint resources and projects for the next year, this will encourage you to get into doing what you really love doing and doing it the way you want to do it versus the way you think you should do it.
Jupiter will spend the year in your 8th house, which apart from being your joint resources and projects zone will also spark the investigator in you and pique your curiosity about all sorts of things. Some of you could even go way outside your comfort zone over the next 12 months and set off on uncharted courses and in ‘shark infested waters’. A much needed shake up is headed your way bulls. Embrace it. Take advantage of it. It will be here and gone in a flash.
If you’re set on launching a project, especially if it involves shared monies and personal partnerships – do yourself a huge favour and avoid the 15th – 17th at all costs. Both personal planets of the zodiac Venus and Mercury will be stationing on the 16th – waiting to change direction – Venus your ruler to move direct in your 6th house of hard work, health and well being and Mercury to start his final retrograde journey of the year in your 8th house of hard work and health. Starting anything new mid-month is not recommended at all bulls. Use that infamous patience of yours to hold off and let the cosmos do it’s ‘thing’.
Fiery Mars will square off with expansive Jupiter on the 19th, a giant boom of energy that just so happens to be in the neighborhood when all kinds of sudden events occur – for better or worse. In your case it could very well involve your love and sex life. Want to know more? Make sure you read up on my November LoveScope to find out!

Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The biggest cosmic news on the block this month is your ruler, Venus, the planet of love and relationships going out of phase or retrograding in Scorpio – October 5 – November 16. This retrograde occurs in your opposite sign of Scorpio, your one on one relationship zone and is sure to throw more than a few spanners in the works for all of you – single/attached/kinda single/kinda attached as well as issues with friends, family, neighbours and coworkers. Basically everyone you have a relationship with.
The best thing to do whilst Venus your ruler is out of phase is to deal directly with the person and with the problems as they come up. Don’t leave issues to fester and linger bulls. Now is the time for direct and swift action. Getting in front of things before they blow up in your face is also a good way to circumnavigate what is sure to be a stressful month. The other thing you have to avoid doing is trying to please everyone all the time. If you can’t seem to please/appease others, then stop trying so hard and let them come back to you when they have things worked out in their mind.
Do make sure you read my October LoveScopes to read up on what Venus retrograde is going to do for you bulls in the love department too!
Power struggles come up surrounding relationship issues on the 11th and may seem to be far more serious and intense than they really are Taureans. You are known for your stubborn silence – don’t let your stubborn silence get in the way of you making sure your opinion is heard and you also listen to what the other person has to say. Life’s too short to leave things angry between you and someone you care about.
The full Moon in your sign October 24 is a time to bring something full circle bulls. The Full Moon will get together with Venus and Saturn to make this a special day for you. Write it down in your calendar and see if you can’t do something special on the 24th. Astrologically you will with be gifted with the ability to be hedonistic and yet controlled enough to enjoy just a bit of everything without going overboard. A sense of moderation is in the air thanks to a month of Libra planetary activity. Take full advantage of it.
On Saturday the 27th you will get to enjoy the benefits of a Sun-Saturn sextile aspect – the stuff that solid handshakes are made of. If you’ve been negotiating and trying to rework a deal, you can start to rework and reshape it all over again on the 27th.
Your best October days are: 4, 12, 15 & 22
Your challenging October days are: 2, 10, 25 & 31
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
The New Moon in Virgo on the 9th transits your romance and creative zone, and with Venus the Goddess of love and relationships in Scorpio your opposite sign makes for a very social time indeed for you bulls. September is set to be one of the best months for you in 2018 so make sure you clear your schedule enough to make room for all the fun and games (and possible love connections you could make). Just make sure you read my September LoveScopes to find out what it means for those of you bulls who are single and for those of you who are attached.
Don’t freak out about a financial matter around the 12th bulls – as long as you ask for help and more importantly accept help from higher ups or experienced professionals who remain calm and advise you accordingly. You are the second sign of the zodiac and ruled by Venus the Goddess of money and tend to be vigilant over your cash flow situation. So before you let loose or have a meltdown – take a deep breath and make sure you know all of your options.
Saturn the planet of discipline and life lessons is scheduled to move forward September 6 and since Saturn is the kind of planet who just loves to stall, frustrate and delay even our best laid plans, moving forward with your financial or business oriented proposals may not be entirely possible. In fact, if what you’ve been planning is a very big, very bold money move this could be a time for you to do some stalling if you’re not ready and don’t feel prepared to put down a deposit or your hard earned cash.
Your Lucky September days: 7, 9, 12 & 16
Your not so Lucky September days: 8, 23, 25 & 30
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Your cosmic guide and ruler Venus, the Goddess of love and money shifts gears on the 7th, aligning in your 6th house of health and wellbeing. August is a good month for you to focus on what makes you happy and healthy. If you haven’t swiped your gym membership card in forever, now’s the time to do so. Or you can’t even remember the last time you did any form of exercise, this is a great time to pick up the pace (literally).
Plus with your ruler settling into peace loving Libra on the 7th, it’s a great time for you to exercise some compromise. You’re known for being stubborn and don’t let your pride get in the way of you achieving something that’s important to you. There is definitely hope on the horizon – even if it means you have to drastically change your mind and position on something or someone.
Financially this is a great month to sit down with a financially savvy person or even a trusted professional and work out a workable budget for yourself. Go over the numbers and be realistic about how much money is coming in and how much is going out. As a Taurus you usually like to buy pretty, shiny things for yourself and others however you have to balance your shopping out with putting money away for the proverbial rainy day.
Venus and Saturn the planet of discipline will get caught up on the 22nd and could send confusing messages your way and vice versa. Keep in mind that Mercury the communicator remains out of phase through the 19th in your family and domestic zone. Misunderstandings between family, friends who are like family, roommates and even neighbors could occur. Don’t try to fix things until Mercury moves direct. Just stay as neutral as possible and don’t enter into any ‘he said she said’ conversations.
Your most rewarding August days: 6, 18, 25 & 30
Your most unrewarding August days: 4, 8, 11 & 22
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Early in the month, the Sun and dream weaver Neptune will get into an easy, relaxing trine aspect, urging you to find a temporary escape hatch – just to ditch the ‘real world’ for a short but much needed break from what’s going on in your life. While this might only be a temporary respite, it’s good to take some time out from the stresses and strains of your life bulls.
The New Moon/Solar Eclipse on the 12th along with intense Pluto, the planet of extremes in your 3rd house of conversations and communication could very well activate an intense talk between you and some else (possibly a Scorpio). While words could fly in a rapid-fire way, you might not like the fact that things are changing and it’s happening out of your control bulls. While you’re a fixed and stubborn sign, this is one of those times when you should be open and willing to accept change and listen to other people’s opinions about things. Some of you have probably seen this coming for some time – don’t worry because you’ve got this for sure.
Your lucky days in July:5, 22, 24 & 28
Your unlucky days in July:1, 25, 26 & 27
Right before the New Moon in Gemini, your self-esteem and resources zone the Moon will spend time in your sign bulls. This planetary placement is going to urge you to express your feelings and even confide in people you would never normally confide in. There must be one person in your life that you can unburden your trials and tribulations on bulls?
Money and your self-esteem go hand in hand under the guise of a New Moon on the 13th and thanks to the planetary activity will be a lot easier to sort things out. The New Moon will make it alot easier for you and the person/people you are interacting with to come to some sort of workable solution bulls, so you might have to wait a few days after the 13th to really see where the land lies. An entirely new solution could occur to you and you might be able to nip things i the bud quickly and come to an amicable arrangement.
Mercury spends half the month in Gemini and the other half in Cancer. As the planet of communication and clear thinking it might be wise to wait until he’s in Cancer before making any procolomations or big plans. Mercury the communicator will square off with spontaneous Uranus in your sign on the 30th of June, so you have to ensure that you keep your cool bulls and don’t say or do anything that might not be able to be take back so easily. You might need to hit the gym or go for a run in order to work off frustrating but it will be worth it.
Your best days:14, 17, 20 & 23
Your worst days:7, 11, 20 & 23
Mercury the planet of communication and clear thinking spends 2 weeks in your sign from May 13 – the 29th. Luckily he’s in forward motion too after being out of phase in April, so any financial or otherwise transactions you’re handling should go well, as long as you avoid the 28th. If you’re not sure about the next step you should take, don’t make any rash decisions or sign anything important until you talk to a professional or someone you trust around the 18th.
More money matters seem to be in the stars for you this month. Conversations may not go easy on the 1st, 7th or 9th – even though money is one of your specialties. This doesn’t mean you won’t be able to come to an agreement, only that you may have to table the discussion until much later in May – mid-month. However you’ve never been famous for rushing so don’t start now.
The Full Moon on the 29th occuring in sassy Sagittarius illuminates your solar axis of finances, possessions and personal values. This could mean that you’re about to invest in a partnership, and if so, no matter what the reason, be it personal and or professional, before you sign up, be sure you’re sure. You’re a stubborn sign and known for hanging in there – sometimes well past the time when most would throw in the towel. However if it’s something that is stressing you out you have to ask yourself – do you really want this hanging over you for weeks/months to come?
YOUR BEST DAYS: 18, 22, 23 & 25
