Ever since side-spinning Uranus entered your sign in May 2018, life’s been careening along at an unpredictable pace. And while you’re finally adapting to the progress, it’s been equally hard to get your hands on the wheel. The chaotic intensity could come to a climax this week, Bull—and perhaps in a very exciting way! On Monday, August 1, an ultra-rare summit between Uranus, go-getter Mars and the destiny-driven North Node may reveal a path that has Taurus written all over it. The trick to acing this? Release your stubborn resistance to change! This triumvirate will be liberating for you; if not full-on revolutionary. Bulls who have been flying under the radar could be vaulted into the public eye or pushed to a more prominent position of leadership. If you’ve been holding yourself back, look out world! Make the decision that works in YOUR favor. And remember: Without risk there is no reward.
Passion comes pouring in this Thursday, when mental Mercury sweeps into Virgo and turns on the creative taps until August 25. And it begins with indulging your senses. Incidentally, Bull, you don’t have to break the bank to do it! Your earthy sign gets thrills from simple pleasures like placing aromatic flowers around the house and filling the air with the irresistible smells of home cooking. This transit can also refresh a stagnant love life. Couples should pool your imaginative resources and explore your edges. Single? Test-drive a new dating app—or go on a “digital detox” and only meet people IRL. Throw yourself into your passions, and you’ll have a running start on meeting someone who shares at least one of your interests.
This weekend, you may feel like a hummingbird buzzing from flower to flower. Amiable Venus in your social sector teams up with dreamy Neptune in your collaborative eleventh house. More will be merrier and mightier, especially if you have a world-bettering idea you need to put a little more muscle behind. It doesn’t have to be heavy, though. Gather your squad for a “working brunch” in which you invite people to share THEIR thoughts about how to best get this idea up and running.
