Taurus Monthly Horoscope for July 2020


Taurus (April 19-May 20) — Many things that vexed and challenged you in the past are now revealing their gifts. Yet without trust, you will not be able to receive them. Fortunately, you’ve faced many experiences in recent years that have dismantled the blocks to intimacy, vulnerability and simply being yourself. Most of these were held in false or conditioned beliefs that had the effect of hardening you and emotionally distancing you from others. Take a moment and make a conscious inventory of what beliefs you’ve surrendered, given up, disproven, or which have mysteriously disappeared, since around late 2017. Many things have happened in that time, and you may not associate any of them with the way your ideas about life were being disproven. Yet you might try that out in hindsight, as a thought experiment. Many of those will involve some form of guilt being dismantled, which it will not take much inquiry to associate with religious guilt. This comes in many forms and disguises, which all point back to the same kinds of internally installed social control devices. Their purpose is always the same: to make people more manageable. Once the beliefs that support them start to dissolve, several different things can happen, one of which is that your life experience alters to more accurately reflect the truth about your existence. It can seem like the world is changing and you are adapting, but what is really happening is you are changing and what you witness reflects that. So remember, what is true comes from you, and makes the world you see. Focus your efforts there.

Sign Description for Taurus

(April 19-May 20) — Calm, collected and attractive on the outside, raging like a tempest on the inside, Taurus is the blacksmith shop of the soul. If you’re a Taurus, you’ve incarnated at this time for the purpose of being shaped and tempered. Just be sure you go gently on yourself even during the tempering process. And remember that such deep working out should be harnessed in the form of creative energy as well as sensuality. You need both.


While you’re famous for your supposed stubbornness, few understand that you’re trying to work out your inner complexities and don’t want to make a move or a decision until you feel you’re all sorted out. But there is always more to sort, and at a certain point you have to go with the experiment of living.

Change is challenging for you. It’s easier if you think it’s your idea, so make sure you keep coming up with new possibilities to keep yourself on the move. And speaking of ideas, change is indeed easier if you are connected to your creative process. You might need to finally move because you want to do something with your space.

Not enough room for an art space, yoga area, recording studio or practice room in your house? It’s finally time to go somewhere bigger.

Remember that confidence and digging in your heels are two entirely different things. You must handle your possessive nature carefully so as not to alienate others, and remember that as much as you might like to be ‘taken possession of’, this doesn’t really work for you. At a certain point you will need your independence.

Your sign is associated with the planet Venus, which is bright, beautiful and has an atmosphere of ammonia cooking at 900 degrees centigrade. It’s healthy to let some of that fire and passion out into the open. Taurus is a sign of the earth element, and is also a fixed sign, coming in the middle or peak of a season — which happens to be the season of Beltane, the pagan celebration of sex.

Your erotic nature is more promiscuous than you may want to admit, however, you also have a strong drive to bond with others. You must find a balance between the two. To learn more about yourself, look up the sign of your Venus as well as your Moon, two elements in your chart closely associated with Taurus.
