August brings fiery love when Venus enters Leo, and some very good luck when the goddess of love and Jupiter join in conversation. But Taurus holds the spotlight this month. Find the sign of the bull in your chart and buckle up. Weâ€™ve got some very big energy coming our way.
On August 1st, we jump right into one of the most important conjunctions of 2022. The North Node, the point of destiny, Uranus, the planet of the unexpected, and Mars, the god of war, will stack up in Taurus, the sign of comfort and resources. Thatâ€™s a whole lot to unpack, and weâ€™ll be doing just that until August 20th when Mars moves into Gemini. Weâ€™ve been experiencing the North Node/Uranus union since the middle of July, so consider how your life has been getting a good shake-up since then. Many people have found themselves making unexpected decisions that have come out of the blue but seem inevitable. For some, these nudges down the path of destiny havenâ€™t been comfortable. Uranus doesnâ€™t much care how we feel. It demands change, either through brilliant innovative ideas or shocking events blowing our lives apart. Now on the 1st, Mars joins this party, bringing his do-it-now spirit. Think of Mars when heâ€™s being good as the athlete and when heâ€™s not as the assassin. He packs a wallop either way.
Taurus is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, money, beauty, and comfort. This monthâ€™s super-charged shake-up will definitely impact the things that keep us comfy and feeling secure. It could bring an unexpected move or an out-of-the-blue business opportunity. For some, it might mean the sudden loss of something cherished but outgrown. Sometimes Taurus energy fosters clinging to whatâ€™s familiar long after we should have let go. Uranus and Mars will take care of that. Uranus blows things up, and Mars cuts things apart. There will be no clinging under their watch. Keep in mind that with the North Node involved in this mĂ©nage Ă trois these changes will ultimately lead to something better.
Almost as soon as the trio unite in Taurus, Venus moves into a harmonious aspect with them, softening the energy a bit. Venus, the ruler of Taurus, will be transiting the nurturing sign of Cancer. The goddess of everything that feels good will add her positive vibe to the drama-filled conjunction especially during the first week of August. Her support will end when she exits Cancer on the 11th. The first week of the month could bring unexpected new love or brilliant financial opportunities. Do be careful of over-spending and out-of-control eating (Taurus loves both) until Venus moves into Leo. Then get ready to add some spice to your romantic life while the goddess of love transits this sizzling hot sign.
The Moon becomes full in Aquarius on the 11th. Full Moons are about culminations and reaping the rewards of seeds already sown. The intentions you set during the New Moon at the end of July should be taking form around the time of this Full Moon. Use this phase as a time to be grateful for the harvest and take a break before setting new intentions on the 27th when we have a New Moon in Virgo, a perfect time to make plans for working on detailed projects or starting new health routines.
Venus makes another beautiful aspect on the 18th when she slides into a Trine, the most harmonious aspect, with Jupiter. Expect good luck to show up in the areas of love, money, and creative pursuits. Make the most of this energy by taking time to have fun and enjoy life. Find time for the people closest to you. Gather your friends and loved ones to visit art galleries or hike in nature. Venus will send her love your way during these very Venutian pastimes.
As we head into August, we should all prepare for profound changes to come our way. But with Venus in the picture, it should also be a month of fun and fulfillment. If your foundation starts to rock and roll, just catch the beat and dance your way through it. Your destinyâ€™s waiting.
