September announces its very potent presence with quite a powerful blast of cosmic energy, thanks to the Solar Eclipse on the 1st. This astro-event is also a New Moon in a sister earth sign, so you'll fare a bit better than the other signs. And because it takes place in your house of pleasure and romance, the developments it brings should be on the decidedly delicious side of things. The only caveat is Mercury Retrograde, which began just at end of August in the same part of your horoscope. This can bring back ex-lovers, but the trick is not to put too much stock into advances on the romance front. Even what seems very real can disappear in a heartbeat, the moment Mercury goes direct on the 22nd. Loveliness abounds on the 9th, when lucky Jupiter moves into Libra, the other Venus-ruled sign, for the first time in twelve years. A major work boon is coming your way, and it lasts all the way through the fall of 2017. The second of two eclipses, this one a Full Moon, arrives on the 16th. This one is a whole lot more emotional and less practical – it's all about friendship now, Taurus. There could be some drama with your girl-squad, but you'll understand what a real bestie is made of soon enough. September ends with a third lunation – this one a New Moon beckoning you to set some serious goals about work.

August is your month to stay out of the fray, Taurus. In fact, the more time you can book on a beach or some other quiet away-from-it-all locale, the better you'll feel. You're also inclined to spend time at home, so a staycation might be just the thing, especially near the New Moon on the 2nd. Family and close friends – the people that know you best – are the ones to have around at this special moment. In fact, if you've experienced any stress or tension with loved ones, this is a fantastic time to set things straight and heal those wounds – even the most ancient ones. This is also the day that Mars, the planet of action, moves back into your house of intimacy and transformation. Issues from last winter (especially relating to your lover or long-term partner) can resurface now. Two weeks later, on the 18th, you get a banner career day. This amazing Full Moon (also a partial Lunar Eclipse) will open you up to a myriad of opportunities to expand your professional life – tap into your social network for best results. This is not the time to go it alone, Ms. Bull. If you really want to get it done, a creative collaboration is key. After the 22nd the Sun moves into your house of romance and pleasure, capping off the last ten days of the month in the most delightful way possible. With your ruler Venus moving into Libra on the 29th, sweetness rules, even at the office.
