For you Taurus August 2012 Mercury is currently affecting communications with your loved ones
Horoscope for Taurus August 2012 (Taurus 21 April – 20 May)
Family, Love and Relationships
Mercury is currently affecting communications with your loved ones in relation to your financial affairs. It turns direct on 8th August so potential delays and errors in these areas will ease. More importantly your Planetary Ruler Venus moves into Cancer on the same day, causing a shift in energy from enjoying light social situations and networking to valuing nurturance and protectiveness. Beautifying your home may become important during this period as you will feel quite sentimental and nostalgic. Your one-to-one relationships will take on a cosy feel, and you may feel quite clingy and more sensitive than usual.
From the 13th until 16th you may encounter disruptions and/or intense experiences in your love life, while you seek deeper fulfilment. A new romance may begin during this time and relationships may undergo change on some level. Take care with loved ones as conflicts may arise regarding travel, education, siblings or your neighbourhood.
The Leo New Moon on the 17th will be particularly good for you. New beginnings to do with home and family are indicated over the next two weeks. This will help you to consider what makes you feel safe and secure on a personal level and may involve reviewing any issues of intimacy. When the Sun moves into your 5th house of romance on the 23rd and contacts Mars in your relationship area, this will ramp up the romance and passion.
Business and Finance
The first Full Moon on the 2nd of August suggests that this is a peak time when you could suddenly be in the limelight. This may be due to a creative project which you have recently completed and is favourably viewed, after all the hard work of balancing opposing views and ego clashes. This may lead to an unexpected business opportunity or an improved public status. Alternatively, you may have to take on an unexpected task at the last moment. While this could be a good period for you, try to accept not everyone will agree with your views.
Between 13th and 16th tread carefully with work colleagues or people you encounter on a daily basis as conflict may rear its head along with any previously hidden tensions. Try to air your feelings diplomatically so as to avoid further fall out. From the 17th onwards things will improve and business partnerships will provide you with structure and support in the coming weeks.
Health and Wellbeing
Finally, the 2nd Full Moon in Pisces on the 31st brings the chance to balance your romantic relationships and recreational activities with your wider group of friends, groups and associations. Your social life may improve along with your happiness, particularly if you have been feeling isolated recently.
