Welcome to August, Taurus. Last month left you focusing on self-care to avoid a total burnout. Pamper yourself so you can get back out there. Now that you’ve taken a bit of a breather, it’s time to get back out there.
However, during the full moon in wise and emotional Pisces on Tuesday, September 1, you may want to turn to a different form of self-care as well. You’ve been working hard through an incredibly difficult period in history. It’s important that you release pent up emotions. As an earth sign, you can appear calm on the outside, but that doesn’t mean that you’re not fed up on the inside. Go ahead and scream into our pillow or have a nice, long cry.
From Wednesday, September 9, to Friday, November 13, warrior planet Mars goes retrograde. Mars is all about fucking and fighting, so your life may feel a bit stagnant during this time period. Your sex life may slow down, and all of your projects (professional, personal, and political) may seem at a standstill. They’re not. You just have to look inward rather than outward. Examine the areas of your life that are causing you stress, and adjust your workload as needed. You are still on the proper course to reach your goals.
Speaking of goals, we can’t forget your love life. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the goddess of love, so you are an extremely sensual sign. However, you can also act slowly, so if politics or work are taking up most of your time, you may have left your sex life on the back burner. During the new moon on Thursday, September 17, in analytical Virgo, figure out what you really want from dating. Do you want to reignite the spark in your current relationship, or are you ready to see what being single is like in times like these? Use the energy of the new moon, which signifies fresh starts, in organized Virgo to start dating again with a plan.
A big date this month is Tuesday, September 22. It’s the fall equinox, which is a time to think about the future, however uncertain that may feel right now. Take some time that day to make a list or vision board about what you want to manifest this winter. It’s also the first day of Libra season, which is the sign of balance, partnerships, and justice. While Libra season is the perfect time to fight the power, it’s also ideal for setting your sights on a new crush. Have fun and see you in October.

We know many of you may be feeling worried, frightened, or isolated right now. Although the stars don’t have answers to the multitude of questions running through all of our minds, astrology may at least provide some comfort during times of uncertainty. We urge you to donate to one or all of these organizations if you’re able to; if you can’t, we created a guide to ways you can support the BLM movement other than financially.
