An Open Letter To Taurus For August 2021
How are you my friend? I'm writing this letter to you in the hope all is well. I know that your physical comfort and security is important to you. And quite rightly so. Also, high on your priority list is the quality and durability of your relationships. All these issues have been tested by the pandemic's overwhelming impact upon society. Very few of us have been able to continue our “ordinary” life as we would choose to live it. We have all had to make concessions to the needs of the time and accept the draconian restrictions imposed upon our personal liberties. Happily, things seem set to change. Therefore, I'll open my trusty ephemeris and try to decode what the planets may have in store for my wonderfully loyal Taurean friends.
Many of you will be (uncharacteristically) throwing caution to the wind in the eager pursuit of hedonistic gratification. Indeed, I suspect that many of you have had to endure a period of enforced celibacy and justifiably want to continue where you left off in a really hot relationship. Many Taureans will be delighted to learn their most intimate relationships fall under Jupiter's lively and enthusiastic influence. Interestingly, Mars adds spice to the recipe and — perhaps — just a little too much haste. To me, this suggests that while your “luck's in”, you mustn't take too much for granted.
While remaining cautiously optimistic, it might be wise to remember that circumstances change over time, and it could be more than your life and libido that has been put to the test. Therefore, ask yourself how you will react to going back to square one, or, being challenged with the task of reigniting the slowly cooling embers of passion burning within another heart. Needless to say, you are more than ready to react to any given situation, but please think twice before you respond by committing yourself to an overly ostentatious celebration, or, buying an expensive gift. Some problems cannot be fixed by simply chucking money at them!
Love and romance receive emphasis this week. While most things are going to your liking, I suspect a few of my Taurean friends might ponder about something which happened while you and your partner were out and about together. Did your partner pay too much attention to a third party, or, did anything unusual to stir your interest or arouse your suspicions? This could all be perfectly innocent, of course, but your horoscope indicates you are on high alert over something. On a significantly more positive note, you discover some deep intellectual interest or shared passion with your partner. This strengthens your bond and brings you closer together.
Turning to your career or business interests: something new and exciting happens in the world of work and has a positive impact on your future plans. Interestingly, hygiene becomes an issue. Could this be something to do with the enactment or observance of Covid-19 legislation? If you are in business for yourself, it might be worth keeping a watchful eye on your team members and perhaps offering a few helpful suggestions that will save you from problems further down the timeline.
Changing tack for one moment: you suddenly become aware — in the nicest possible way — that you're not doing justice to your appearance and decide to initiate some changes in the way you present yourself to the world. Splashing some cash on more attention grabbing cloths might be one option, or, how about a new tattoo or more body piercings? Another option might be something expensive to adorn your ring-finger: like an engagement ring, for example?
Mars, Mercury and Uranus energies combine to produce an idea — which is nothing short of a stroke of genius — to promote and enhance something to do with your social standing, personal wealth or political influence in the community. This might entail some really inventive business solutions or grabbing the headlines in the local media. Interestingly, I suspect an enterprising Taurean entrepreneur might consider starting up a local community radio station to publicize an issue that is of particular interest to them. This could be your way of manipulating of public opinion and growing support for one of your “out of the box” business schemes.
Other Taurus operating on a smaller budget may start a home based business focusing on diet, health, hygiene, or, cosmetics. However, I'm not discounting the possibility that a gifted orator might launch a successful political career this week, by joining a local branch of a democratic political party. The future is always malleable and amenable to manipulation by the perceptive and foresighted individual. Could this be you?
Things are looking good, folks. Mercury and Mars energies, complemented by both Uranus and Saturn, suggest creative achievements burst forth upon the world, hand fashioned by craftspeople and those gifted with some talent which necessitates manual dexterity and a creative appreciation of beauty and form. I'm thinking of people like Taurean sculptors, woodworkers; the creators of beautiful artefacts which both please the eye and fulfil some useful purpose.
Changing tack once again from things of tangible material substance to more etherial, emotional and maternal issues. Many of my Taurus friends stand upon the threshold of a new life. Rapid transformations teach new skills and life-lessons. Parenthood or adoption will challenge and reward many of you in equal measure. Your life and future has new meaning. You have long dithered upon the brink of some big decision, but now your mind is made up. Consequently, you take your courage in both hands and begin to pen a new chapter in your diary.
One final observation: this week is a time ripe for making transformations and news starts. The intrepid explorer in you will find fresh ways to make its mark and manifest itself in your life. Your business plans begin to manifest into actuality, and many of my Taurus friends will finally slam the door closed on grief and heartache. Take care of yourselves and stay safe. I wish you “God's speed” in all your future endeavours.
