TAURUS (April 19–May 20)
Surprising creative opportunities appear August 3 around the trine of Venus to Uranus. You’ll need clear-eyed discernment to unravel reality-based viability vs. pure potential August 9 at the opposition of Venus to Neptune. A lot of the nervous tension you’ve had this year will ease when Venus enters Libra August 16. With the current long-term transit of erratic Uranus through Taurus (March 2019–February 2026), anytime planetary ruler Venus is in either Venus-ruled Libra or Taurus, things go smoother for you. Emotional maturity is your most attractive trait when Venus trines Saturn August 23 and opposes Chiron August 26.
