Your Taurus Monthly Horoscope July 2018 means this is the time for catching up with local gossip. Research and learning are well starred too as your mind is hungry to chew on a book or twelve. This is a great time to learn something new. Your brain will be sponge-like in its absorbency for information. You will find you are able to settle down with a book and find it hard to put down. Local trips are enjoyable as you find you have many invites to neighborhood events. There is much running due to running errands or bargain hunting. From July 23 the focus falls back inside your home and you are drawn to snuggling up on the sofa or pottering around the garden. It feels like you need to ground yourself again and get closer to your roots, whether that is about connecting with family or just doing tree pose barefoot in the garden.
The June 28 Full Moon 6º Capricorn gives you itchy feet for escaping to somewhere far-flung. This could mean planning some sort of esoteric study which will open your mind up to infinite possibilities. You want to feel boundless but also contained safely in a pod, like being on the London Eye or some such big wheel tourist contraption. If you can’t afford to travel anywhere you might find instead that you bring distant cultures to your own doorstep by making friends with a foreigner. Whatever you do, you will have dreams of distant shores or even historical places that transport you back in time. Forwards or backward, mental or physical it doesn’t matter as long as you are on an exciting voyage.
Taurus Monthly Love Horoscope ~ Venus in your home sector means that you are less likely to want to go out and socialise this month, so the chances of singletons meeting anyone new are low unless you like postmen. On the other hand, if you are coupled up you will probably feel so loved up that you don’t even want to leave your boudoir of love.. Enjoy this time to do some home cooking, chill in the garden or even some light decorating.
Mars Retrograde ~ June 27 until August 28
Mars reeving backwards in your career house can be a double-edged sword. You get a extra boost of ambition here, but it can also make you unduly scheming or even ruthless. However Mars retrograde can be useful in that you should be daring and pioneering in terms of pushing yourself out there into the world. It’s always good to have courage! This transit is a lot easier to handle if you are self-employed. You will have the motivation to try new things without anyone holding you back. The only thing that does actually hold you back is the fact that Mars can be quite defensive while retrograde so you might not take public criticism too well. You might choose to leave a job when Mars goes direct after a build up of frustrations in the workplace. Mars often means brave new starts, sometimes too impulsive,. However with the retrograde you know that you really have looked at all options and you are not being too rash in your decision. I would wait until Mars turns direct before you make any leaving announcement, you want to say goodbye holding a good reference! From Aug 13 Mars moves into your 11th house and yoga or martial arts are suddenly attractive at this time. Putting up with sore muscles can be challenging too as the body stretches into alien shapes. Mars retrograde should make you quite brave and game to try anything however. By the time it goes direct, Mars cannot help but propel you into new territory due to the pioneering energy it built up while it was retrograde.
The Summer Solar Eclipses

August 11 ~ Solar Eclipse 18º Leo .Events in your daily life can bring up long buried feelings, seemingly from nowhere in the next 6 months. It may be very helpful to take a trip somewhere that is meaningful to your ancestors.

You may actually move house, especially if this eclipse falls very close to the IC itself.
Taurus Monthly Horoscope ~ August
Your Taurus Monthly Horoscope for August 2018 stresses that this is a time of connecting with your roots. Your home and personal territory become really important and the tendency to look inward while spending time in your home sanctuary is something your soul is crying out for at this time. If you own your home outright then you might want to focus on making it more secure or creating a ‘safe space’ within it, away from noisier family members. It benefits your health to honor ancestral lineage, if your immediate family seem alien to you, maybe you can feel grounded by looking back in time. Enjoy feeding your roots, because after Aug 23 it’s party time and you will feel more like being the social butterfly while the sun is lighting up your fun zone
The July 27 Lunar Eclipse 4º Aquarius can make you really popular as you are hyper-sensitive to the mood of the world around you. You know just what the people need so that they will lap up everything you put on their table. Business should go exceedingly well then during the whole of this month, peaking at the Full Moon itself. The only negative thing could be that your private thoughts and emotions have a tendency to spill out involuntarily into the public arena also. That includes social media too, so watch those tweets! Your reputation might be at stake if you have been harboring any raw, politically-incorrect opinions that might offend the sensitive public ear.
