A Taurus Moon fosters a calming environment, which always tends to be more noticeable after the whirlwind Aries transit. However, the Sun’s quincunx with Neptune could stir a brief spell of volatility. Express.co.uk reveals your horoscope, star sign reading, astrology and zodiac forecast for August 17.
In astrology, Neptune is the psychic planet of inspiration, intuition, spirituality and compassion; the domain of dreams and delusions.
While in transit, it has a tendency to colour our view, which can lead to disappointment when the haze lifts and reality restores.
The Sun, on the other hand, represents power, and authority and can bear an impact on the areas involving personal goals and ambitions.
Holm Astrology said: “When Neptune is in transit to our Sun by quincunx, also known as inconjunct, it often speaks of a time when we need to or should make some alterations or adjustments to our plans.”

However, it continued, “Neptune can make us a little dreamy about what it is we want to manifest in our life.”
Neptune’s alignment with the Sun can make you feel drained of energy, especially when it comes to dealing with others, according to Cafe Astrology.
Cafe Astrology said: “We may feel slightly off or out of sorts, and there can be difficulties concentrating or figuring out our next step.
“These things are more likely if we’ve neglected our spiritual needs, and it makes sense to slow down and adjust.”
Insight Astrology said: “Abundance and good fortune are typically associated with Venus trine Jupiter, as are healthy and fulfilling relationships.”
To make the most of this energy, Insight Astrology advises putting trust in the process and thinking positively.
It said: “It’s a process that’s intrinsic to how we interact with the world. How we think, speak and act influences our reality.
“The realisation of this truth allows us to release old unnecessary baggage and step courageously into powerful self-expression.”
The Moon will transit in Taurus until Friday when it will enter Gemini at 1.05pm.
