Hello my Sweethearts and welcome to the August reading for Taurus Guy.
Now this is quite an interesting month because we have Venus retrograde for the whole month in Leo. Venus is of course the ruler of Taurus, so there are quite a few implications of the retrograde
Mercury goes retrograde at the end of the month and the New Moon is in Leo and this gives the whole month quite a cozy, laid-back feel. It’s an excellent time to focus on family, on entertaining, on relaxing together, and connecting on a deeper level.
With Mars in Virgo, it’s quite an exciting time if you are dating Taurus Guy, because he is definitely more amorous and more passionate, but it could be quite intense and if he’s feeling a little bit insecure and that jealous side of him could come to the fore. So, while he is in the mood for love, you have to be attentive and you may find him a little bit demanding.
Venus retrograde in Leo – the whole month
With Leo retrograde in his solar fourth house, Taurus Guy is not in the most sociable mood. In terms of going out, the phrase ‘the new out is in’ can be quite apt. He likes his own space, he quite enjoys his own company and he tends to want to do things around the home to improve his environment. This is actually an excellent time if you guys have been thinking of doing any renovations at home. This is a wonderful time for redecorating and improving your home and garden to make family life more satisfying, but it’s also a good time for you both to improve relationships with other family members too.
Often toxicity in terms of relationships with either of your parents, your neighbors or children can lead to friction in the relationship. So, a better love relationship with Taurus Guy is about improving the relationship you have with other significant people in your life. So make an effort to improve relationships with your family and to get on with his parents.
Although he’s a little bit lazy, it’s a good time for entertaining in the home as long as it’s not too stressful.
New Moon in Leo – 16th August
This represents an excellent time for a reboot in terms of emotional trust and stability.
In love, the New Moon in Leo signifies a more stable union and that you and Taurus Guy are committed to overcoming obstacles and moving forward in your relationship. It suggests that partnerships built on trust, mutual support, and shared goals with thrive and that determined efforts to resolve differences pay off. There’s the ability to balance and integrate different aspects of your relationship, such as passion and stability, individuality, and togetherness.
Family life is favored due to a harmonious and cohesive energy that is driven by a common purpose. The New Moon brings focus on the strong bond between family members, where each individual plays their part in achieving collective success and happiness. The New Moon period reflects the importance of teamwork, effective communication, and compromise within the family dynamic.
Mars in Virgo opposite Neptune – 23rd August
This is definitely a time when you need to be careful of friends-with-benefit relationships, so if you’re with Taurus Guy and you have a loosely defined relationship where you are basically friends but you are also being intimate, that situation will tend not to be workable. You guys will have to make the decision whether you’re going to go into a committed relationship or stay friends. So right now loosely defined relationships really don’t work it’s a case of committing to each other or leaving it be.
If you are friends with Taurus a Guy, right now you may feel you are getting really close to him, but you need to make sure that you can distinguish a caring and compassionate friendship from love. So if you haven’t been intimate, but you believe a relationship is developing, just be cautious that you fully understand what he wants and maybe it’s better to ask some questions to clear up any doubt over whether his feelings are passionate or platonic.
It may be better to have more privacy in terms of your relationship, so avoid hanging out with friends who could be giving you both unhelpful advice or feedback.
Mercury goes retrograde in Virgo – 24th August
After the 24th, there’s a note of caution if you and Taurus Guy mainly interact online, as you have to be very careful in terms of the way you communicate because Mercury retrograde is a time that is usually rife with misunderstandings and miscommunications. It’s important to be direct, say what you mean, and mean what you say.
Although Mercury only goes direct on the 24th, it is slowing down as it moves through Virgo and that means if you are dating or in a romance with Taurus Guy you may feel that things are just a little bit uneventful or even uneasy.
Romantic affairs aren’t really clicking and there are some difficulties in seeing eye to eye, however, there’s nothing to worry about, it’s just the fact that the retrograde planets are creating some obstacles and some challenges, so patience is really required right now. Respect is vital, you need to respect his boundaries, you need to respect his point of view and it’s not a good time to get into debates about heated issues.
Try to be as laid back as possible and when you hang out, avoid doing things that invite contentious issues.
