TAURUS FORECAST

(July 22 – August 22, ’19)

Home is where your heart is this month — family, domestic and property matters will be taking top priority.  Tend to your creature comforts and put your base of operations in solid & secure condition, particularly around 7/27, 31 (New Moon) & 8/11.  You may feel an urge to build, remodel, redecorate, landscape or start a garden.  An opportunity to buy real estate or refinance may arise on 7/25, but wait until after 7/31 (when Mercury turns direct) to do anything about it.  Some positive financial options will be arising on 8/7-8, 11 & 21.

Be prepared for some disruptions or interruptions on 7/29, 8/2-4 & 16; some different perspectives will present themselves, so be open to alternatives.  Take some time out from your household projects to deal with your professional or public responsibilities on 8/14-15 (Full Moon).  After 8/17, a burst of creative energy will be pushing you forward into some uncharted territory; utilize the next 6 weeks to get a new project, business venture or love affair off the ground.

LONG-TERM FORECAST:  You’ll be experiencing a renewed spirit of adventure, expansiveness and optimism while Pluto is in the sign CAPRICORN (20082024).  During this inspiring 16-year cycle, you’ll be exploring new territory, extending your vistas and communicating with others on a global scale – the world is your playground!  Travel, education, writing, publishing, marketing & promotional matters will take top priority.  Your belief systems will undergo a transformational process, as you’ll be investigating higher levels of consciousness and seeking greater understanding of your place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Maintain a positive outlook, stay in integrity with yourself and your ideals, and – most of all – tell the truth!

While Neptune transits PISCES (2012-2026), a subtle shift is taking place within your social life.  During this 14-year cycle, outgrown friendships & alliances will be dissolving, making way for those who deeply share similar interests, ideals, visions & spiritual values. Expect some mystical, magical connections! You may find yourself participating more in music, art and cultural activities during this transit.

Now that Uranus is in TAURUS (since 5/15/18), you’ll begin to express yourself in more original, unconventional ways and live with greater freedom and spontaneity in your everyday life.  During this 7-year cycle, you’re being challenged to get off the beaten path, step out of your comfort zones and explore alternative approaches in living your life.  Do things differently!

Travel, education, writing, publishing, philosophy & religion, politics, international affairs & marketing will be taken more seriously while Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17−12/16/20).  Foreign destinations may have a special appeal for you, as well as serious studies, perhaps involving different religions, cultures or languages.  You may choose to incorporate yoga, meditation, tai chi or acupuncture into your regimen.  During this 3-year cycle, you’ll be inspired to re-evaluate your belief systems, restructure your modes of communication and practice what you preach.  It’s the time to solidify your understanding of the world and develop greater trust in the universe!

With Jupiter now in SAGITTARIUS (11/8/18—12/2/19), it will be advantageous for you to join with others in mutually-beneficial financial or contractual agreements.  Make sure your alignments are with those who share similar values and ethical standards.
