This Jupiter in Aquarius cycle, which can only happen to you every twelve years, is going to open up new possibilities for success and achievement, Taurus – born as a result of obstacles and waiting games. This does sound like a mixed bag, doesn’t it, but then you have Saturn in Aquarius as well. This sign rules your career, unpaid work, vocation or degree. Consequently, to have symbols of both expansion and restriction in the same zone of your chart, can feel like a balloon ride with lead weights tied to the ropes. And yet – if you knew you were going to get away with the journey, you would still take it. Correct? If so, proceed to a Christmas finishing line.
If you work full-time or part-time, then your professional horizons will expand dramatically now. Expect an invitation to go forward, explore and trade on your gifts which may be almost impossible to refuse. New career territories, new jobs, new projects, new places and people…almost everything which is on offer now promises to take you away from what you know, and introduce you to possibilities which offer more of almost everything. As Jupiter has been retrograde, or appearing to go backwards, it is possible that August will return a lost chance to you. As I said, you also have some lead weights here. The issue may be that your current position is untenable, for whatever reason, so you have to take an alternative job. That can happen.
If you don’t have a job; if you are a full-time parent, or if work is secondary to your other mission in life, then this general message of hope and expansion will apply to your overall potential for success, rather than any fixed professional circumstances. You would expect there to be mixed feelings or opposition on the days that we see Leo weather pushing against the Aquarius weather: Monday 2nd and Tuesday 3rd August or nearby; Wednesday 11th August; Friday 20th August or thereabouts.
A sense of vision, hope, faith and optimism could take you to much higher ground now. Draw on your talents, your experience, your heritage, your connections – every gift and asset that you have. It is very important to have faith and believe, Taurus. No matter how immensely challenging a particular role, goal, project, person or organisation happens to be, there is a way out. And a way through.
And – never forget the dumb luck factor either. Jupiter so often puts you in the right time, at the right place, for benefits and protection which just lands in your lap. This may have happened to you in July. Yet, it must seem to you as if everything is a double-edged sword in 2021. This is correct. For every really thundering moment of good fortune, you find that there is some kind of condition attached.
Aquarian singer Justin Timberlake had this cycle on September 12th 2006 when his album Future Sex/Love Sounds was number one in the charts in the USA, the UK, Australia and Canada, making it his biggest global success. That was rather different to you now, as Saturn was nowhere to be seen, but the general message about appearing to do well – seeming to be on top of a mountain – is something you can take away with you, Taurus. That line ‘They can’t take that away from me’ may very well apply to one or two accomplishments now, putting you in a very big space on a very big stage indeed.
As for the Saturn side of the equation? That is your karma and also your hard work. For all that you are being shown tremendous natural advantages delivered to you by a rather benevolent fate, you also have to look at your C.V. now and understand that the burden of heavy responsibility and the need for tremendous hard work can’t be dodged. And at some point you are going to have to choose your priorities, Taurus. It’s a very real possibility that you could resign by 2022, and choose a different profession entirely. If you have a great many factors in Virgo and Capricorn in your personal birth chart, that’s really not out of the question, and signs would be here in August.
Finally, you enter the Virgo weather in August too. So, there is a new beginning here, either for or through the children in your life. Perhaps your son, daughter, godchild, niece or nephew. Maybe, younger people as a whole (so , a paid or unpaid involvement with infants or teenagers. Perhaps, Millennials). What the Sun in Virgo will do for you is make everything terribly public and obvious to others. This gives you a mirror to peer into. Others will hold up a mirror and reflect the details back. This way, you can see what sort of mother you are, or were. (For example).
The Fifth House of your chart, where we find the Virgo weather is also associated with sexual relationships which may end in step-parenting, pregnancy or perhaps with younger in-laws. This can be a one-night stand or a serious new passion. Again, the Sun will show you a mirror. This is an excellent time, in all cases mentioned above, to promise yourself that you will make a fresh start in September. It may be your daughters’ education (for example) or issues about vaccination for a godchild – or maybe the age group is rather older – adult sons, their children and so on – but you’re being steered in a useful direction.
