Yearly and Monthly Astrology Forecasts
Yearly overview and monthly forecasts for Capricorn on love, life, sex and career.
” This is an important year for the re-emergence of romance, passion and fun in the life of Capricorn. You are able to be spontaneous and experimental in love and so if you are single, you are exciting to know and ready to sweep a new partner off their feet even though you are a little shy of committing. In marriages, Capricorn is looking to challenge the perceptions and the routine and start being more open-minded about how you create excitement and bring that buzz back.
This is a year of breakthroughs for Capricorn and in making those life-changing choices you will have some tough internal questions to answers about what your values are, who you want to be and what you want from life. Much of this year is devoted to your identity and either exploring your identity or developing it and by extension that means your approach to love and relationships changes, in that you wants more fun and spontaneity.”
NOTE: I published a separate book with a compilation of all the yearly reviews
TAURUS MAN AUGUST 2018
Living with Mr Taurus
If you are in love with a Taurus Man, August will bring some relief if you have been at loggerheads about family related matters. It could be that you have been involved in disagreements about your children or your respective children and how to manage domestic issues from time allocation to where the kids spend weekends i.e. with you and your guy or with your exes. Some sense should now prevail and you may be able to resolve these matters or at least find clever ways to circumvent them.
Home life has not be very relaxing recently, in fact Taurus Man may have had to make many compromises and these have not sat easily with him. If you have recently moved in with Mr Taurus; he could have been rather irritable with the adjustments and you have to admit, even though you love him, he can be very set in his ways and when his little routines and rituals are disturbed to make way for you he gets a tad cranky. However, Mr Taurus is about to find that little part of him that does like to be flexible as he can sense that something new is brewing and it is rather interesting.
Mr Taurus is very curious in August – if you are dating, he will interrogate you as he wants to know what makes you tick. In fact, if you appear to be somewhat complex and confused he will become aroused intellectually as if he needs to get to grips with some of your issues and work them out. You may feel a little uncomfortable as you are put under the spotlight. Taurus Man can however smartly deflect questions aimed at the deep, dark private parts of his life with humour; there are some personal matters he does not want to be drawn on.
Taurus Man enjoys talking, in fact this month he may keep you up talking into the wee small hours as he is in a problem solving analytical frame of mind and there is this need he has to talk things though – he probably does not want feedback, he is thinking aloud and yet he needs you to be there paying attention.
Psychology, Honesty and Change.
The solar eclipse in August has a significant impact on family values and also a Taurean Man’s level of contentment and security. Taureans who find their partners do not offer some level of contentment or who do not contribute to their security (a key concern for Taurus) will find things reach a tipping point. Existing relationships which undermine who Taurus Man is at heart and which no longer reaffirm his independence and core values are certainly in question.
The key question you have to be honest about, if you are in love with Taurus Man, is how does he want you to change and do you want to change? Taurus Man is undergoing psychological changes right now, triggered by the eclipse, and some of these may manifest in him making what may seem as out of character demands and your own patience and tolerance can be tested. Taurus Man is always open to discussion however especially after the 19th of August when Mercury goes direct.
Taurus Man’s attitude to love is more sober and reflective this month with Taurus coming to terms with harsh realities and deeper psychological issues at play – it may be that these issues have come to light as you have both matured and become more savvy and/or just woken up or maybe the relationships is new and you are learning more about each other. Now, the question is, are the issues you see revealing themselves ones which you can deal with, are they worth dealing with, and do you want to deal with them?
Taurus Men are quite malleable right now – no matter what it looks like on the surface, he is open to your input and he is emotionally open to suggestions which can enhance your life as a couple and perhaps set some new precedents. By setting new precedents, I mean getting rid of relationships rules, like, “We don’t do that,” “that is not for us”, “we don’t do it that way,” etc.; do you still need these parameters, are the not holding you back?
In new and existing relationships you and Taurus Man must define yourselves as a couple and not be defined by anything or anyone else and so friends or family who seek to undermine the relationship or throw their penny’s worth in have to be given the cold shoulder.
Romance and Dating
Taurus Men are projecting a more mysterious persona, and they are attracted to people who seem to be in a journey. They are curious to know what you want from life and the more ideas and aspirations you have the more interested in you they become.
In dating, you and Taurus Man may be holding cocktail parties or entertaining at your home or at one of your respective homes. You may attend literary events or, if you have not yet met you may meet at a literary event, book launch or a recital. It is a month where Taurus is more involved with his family and so you may even be attending a wedding or milestone party with his family.
Taurus Man could be involved in prompting local tourism and if you are dating, one of your trips may be to a local museum or tourist spot where he tells you all the little secrets of his town’s past. Taurus Man may be more interested in history and culture right now and your dates may reflect that.
With the ruler of Virgo and thus Taurus Man’s 5th house retrograde until the 19th of August. Romantic affairs are subject to misunderstandings and miscommunications. He may get a time or date wrong or one of you could be caught in traffic or lose his cell phone; I know it is hard these days with so many communication avenues like WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat etc. to have any excuse not to communicate, however Mercury retrograde is still cunning enough to engineer a communication glipse which can make you question whether you have been stood up. So, be patient and do not jump to the worst conclusion, give him at least a few minutes to make his excuses when he does get back in touch.
Taurus Man has a hearty sense of humour but there are times when he cracks one too far and it can grate on you, so perhaps overlook a little insensitivity it probably sounded good when he thought of it in his head even if it turned into a lead balloon soon after.
You best dates tend to be spontaneous affairs rather that heavily orchestrated ones and so best to meet up and let the evening take you by the scruff of the necks rather than trying to stick to a pre-arranged schedule or have expectations of anything highly specific.
Taurus Man can be a little suspicious in August, and he reads the worst into many situations, not just in connection with romance but in general; a little habit you must take control of. Be honest and direct with him as if you are vague he will probably let his imagination run wild with some misinterpretations. Some of his mistrust is to do with insecurity issues which have roots deep in his subconscious rather than in reality.
Many relationships that start now will have a strong karmic bond – you may have met in a past life, and you may have extraordinarily acute ESP together.
If you and Taurus Man have set up home together and you may well be doing that right now as there is much action in the realm of Taurus’ domestic life, your attention may be drawn to issues around your home from repairs to improvements to discussions with your landlord or committee about rights and responsibilities. You may both move from a flat to a house and have more freedom in your home to do as you wish.
Taurus Man could be called to make decisions about their parents; he may have to assume the head of family role and take responsibility for some far reaching decisions.
As Mercury is retrograde until the 19th of August, any decision Taurus Man makes or anything he says before that time may not be set in stone and could be subject to change. As all signs are influenced by the vagaries of Mercury retrograde, it is good to avoid making promises, going on important trips and finalising any agreements during that phase.
After mercury goes direct on the 19th of August it will be ideal for any decisions you make in terms of home life; while it is good to have discussions and do research and planning before the 19th the final decision on any matter should be left until after that date.
There is a solar eclipse on the 11th of August and he effect can be a crystallisation of events relating to past relationships for Taurus Man. This eclipse can begin a powerful new phase of growth for him, almost a rites of passage time when he feels he can make some clean breaks with emotional ties or people from his past.
The eclipse also provides the impetus for any changes that are needed psychologically and gives Taurus courage to face up to some home truths – even though he may not admit it, as he is proud and admitting things to himself is often hard enough never mind saying it aloud and so do not go there; know when he is a little wounded and do not rub salt in it.
Taurus Man is not averse to change right now, but he with do the risk evaluation in his head. He tends to be a little funny about money – he wants to pay and he may be a little tense about his misses chipping in or lending. Taurus Man tends to want that traditional role of breadwinner and he is uneasy when you are more financially secure or have that extra bit of cash spare. He may spend on credit or scrimp in private to make sure he can keep up a chivalrous mode of treating you and being the provider. In some cases it can be quite defeating on a psychological level for a Taurus Man to be in an inferior financial position this month and you may want to avoid chatting about your raise or how you got a bonus. Remember Taurus are prone to material jealousy; no matter how they evolve they are always rooted in the material and money and financial achievement retains some significance for them no matter how spiritual or evolved they may seem.
Small insights into his own foibles and motivations can mean big gains in Taurus Man’s personal power and after a period of doubt, an increase in his own security. Look out for the period of doubt, which could result is him being a little needy and talking himself down or complaining – Taurus like a little self-pity in small doses, luckily it does not often last long, it is almost like a type of indulgence.
Taurus Man needs to give himself a shake down; he almost needs a wakeup call where a reality is thrust in his face and he starts to make adjustments. You can help him by not criticising him directly, but by helpfully suggesting how others may criticize him or dismantle his arguments and your perspective on how he would prepare for that. You can almost act like his coach, which works a lot better than being blunt like and Arian or Sagittarians may be and telling him just what you think no holds barred.
Taurus Man understands himself a lot better this month, although this process happens over the month and you may be able to observe it if you know him well; if you have just met him he may confuse you and give out so many mixed messages you may feel the relationship is like an emotional lucky dip.
Taurus Man tends to put himself through the mill this month and it may be very intense being with him: that is why you need to have time with your family and your friends as you can get sucked into his issues and his moods where whatever he is going through takes over your life. Taurus Man can be a distraction this month and you need to have a free headspace where you can just re-centre yourself and not lose touch which who you are, what you need and what your focus in life should be. Taurus Man should be part of your life in August 2018 as it may not be that healthy for you if he is all of your life.
Good sex is about understanding yourselves better and recognising certain gut reactions to things which are either useful or not – it is a good time to analyse, understand and change these unhelpful and often self-destructive reflex emotional reactions.
Sex life can always be improved and yet you both cannot escape the influence your upbringing had on making some aspects of sex or intimacy difficult and you may never be able to fully eradicate or shut these influences out. It is vital now to accept any limitations and decide to work within them, rather than raging against them which may be taking too much energy and creating too much stress. Once stress sets in, confidence and the ability to get those improvements can go out the window.
As a couple you should have a wider definition of what good sex is – good sex can be the orgasm, something naughty or forbidden, something that makes you feel loved, something relaxing, something that feels like escapism etc. In August good sex has to be preceded by the sense of deep understanding; if Taurus Man feel you do not know him, do not care to know him deeply or are no that bothered about the deeper aspects of his emotional life he can be wooden in love. The more you show compassion the better sex life is.
Sex with Taurus this month also has to be about deep relaxation and so massages, foot massages, Indian Head massage and any relaxation technique even meditation, if you both enjoy that, before sex or as foreplay is very helpful.
Sex also needs a sense of adventure in August and so perhaps new locations, sex outdoors or a very unusual holiday or trip could get the juices flowing.
The moon waxes between the 11th and 26th making these the best times for new starts and enterprise. These dates apply to all star signs and so they represent a green light phase for new activities, although the dates 19th to 26th are even better as Mercury is direct as well. So, in terms of your communications, any joint contractual arrangements you have, logistics, local travel or buying and selling etc. wait until after the 19th for Mercury to go direct. The waxing period as just stated is ideal for progressive and ground-breaking goals, and there can be success within mathematics, economics, or philosophy (i.e., social sciences) – which could be relevant if you and Taurus Man work in banking, economic analyses and research or academia. This is also an ideal period for collaboration with others on artistic (especially music and fine art) projects and humanitarian goals; and so you and Taurus Man may want to increase your involvement with or expand your networks as related to the music, theatre or art world.

Health – Impatience is a big problem as is frustration and boredom; you must find constructive and positive ways to burn up all your energy. April will be good month to try new things, especially physical exercise and sports, as long as you heed the general advice of the month not to overdo it.
Love – If your partner is weak, this is a time when the relationship will struggle and where there can be arguments and silences. If your partner is a critical and bossy person, it can also be an awkward month for you.
Career – Money matters can seem like a murky labyrinth and so bet keep things simple and hold off on a major expense while you paper over the cracks for the time being.
Health – This phase is certainly full of change and variety. What there is a lack of, however, is routine and routine no matter how much we hate it can be a vital structure for us, which can give us an emotional or psychological anchor.
Love – Perhaps something your own child is experiencing now or a phase they are going through will allow you to relive your own experience and thereby put a positive spin on it and consign any neuroses that stemmed from it to the past.
Career – You may feel the need to put on a brave front as you are feeling vulnerable and quite touchy inside. This is not a day when you will be able to take criticism on board easily, and you should shy away from situations or people where you are likely to be put down.
Health – If something is not going your way, just drop it and forget all about it – this is not a day when plugging away gets you anywhere, mental breathers and a change of environment are what you need.
Love – You may meet someone who already has children, and you will be ready to embrace that happily. In new relationships, this is the period when Aquarians will feel accepted and assimilated into the family of their lover.
Career – Aquarians are not instinctive, in fact, you prefer to act in accordance with reason and critical evaluation, but now you can be rather emotionally and instinctively driven. Often your impulsive reactions to a situation are in contrast to what you consciously aimed to do, and the result can mean you taking a different direction quite suddenly.
Health – There is something nagging, something you know you should do, but are putting off – this may make you irritable and cranky – the best thing is to deal with the issue head on, or throw your efforts/energy into doing something constructive, especially if that relates to home or family to work off the tension.
Love – Issues that may arise could be to do with the time you spend with your family/friends relative to your partners, or it may be to do with your opinions being heard and taken more seriously, or perhaps it is the way you spend your time.
Career – Yes, Pisces are easy going and you like to be hands off in terms of mundane everyday affairs, but today you can be rather irritated and feel as if you do not do something, no one else will.
Health – Moderation is the key: you are highly motivated and enthusiastic, and yet you may attempt too much to prove something to yourself. It is a time when you are driven to take chances, and you want to challenge yourself, but you are not always wise in the way in which you go about this.
Bigger and better in 2018.
“2018 is a year where Sagittarians can rely on a little magic. ‘One dream, one soul, one prize, one goal, one golden glance of what could be’ – the atmosphere around you is more electric and also more supportive, you feel increasingly plugged in to a grand scheme. Sagittarians are magnets for new situations and circumstances which offer more than you even imagined. Flashes of light show the way as your intuition fires up and guides you onto surprising routes where you are joined by people who before seemed opposed to you, but who you now see are on the same mission. Inner contentment and peace can be found more easily now via both the people you meet and circumstances you find yourself in. ‘The day will dawn of sanity’ as Jupiter acts as your guardian angel offering you spiritual protection and you are able to rid yourself of self-destructive tendencies, deeply ingrained fears and the burden of guilt. The bell that rings inside your mind is challenging the door which your own fears and anxieties have kept locked to you for so long. The magic is in unlocking, releasing and shining light into the dark places in your life.”

Kindle, Kindle Unlimited, Paperback – on amazon now.
Love – You need to strike a balance in love between pushing harder for what you want and need while not becoming pushy and impatient – you need to bring positive change to your love life but you should make it a team effort not something where you are just fighting your own corner.
Career – No rest this weekend as you are eager to gain an advantage by putting in extra hours of work or brain storming.
Health – You tend to say things today which put others on the defensive, you look to disrupt harmony to get at the truth, you have an inner turmoil like mental eczema which you deal with by confronting people or issues.
Love – You have a more positive and confident attitude about sex, and you demand an energetic and animated your response from sexual partner. You know when to turn on the charm by saying and doing just the right things at the right times!
Career – Taurus have a greater sense of independence and you are strong-willed, and you have a knack for inspiring others to support your ideas and efforts. It feels good to be a free thinker and that is what inspires others around you and gets you noticed.
Health – Get active and use the energy of Mars to get the blood pumping in any way you can – the method is not important, the endorphins generated are.
Love – You may want to take a few small risks in love – now what you regard as ‘risk’ really depends on your personality, but a risk could be anything from trying a new way to meet a partner, breaking a rule you have set for yourself, i.e. no workplace romances, asking someone you hardly know out, etc.
Career – Using your talents for the common goal without expecting a payback can be the key to changing your life direction in a positive way for months to come.
Health – As Mars enters your 8th house you will see a burst of energy and you should use that to make a break from the past or tackle a regressive habit, and it does not matter how small or in what area of life they are – any routine or mind-set which you tackle now can have a greater impact on your confidence, well-being and life prospects than you think.
Love – Friends can be of great support to you and may offer valuable advice, but that advice can be hard to take especially if it is about your love life.
Career – Cancer are not likely to walk away from a challenge, although knowing when to stand and fight, when to be stubborn and when to let the other person have a hollow temporary victory is essential. Backing down now need not be a defeat it could be tactical.
Health – Pick your battles and manage your energy well today as getting too heated or worked up about something small can be totally counter productive and will cause nothing by headaches.
Love – Trust and respect of each other’s values is vital this weekend – when trust breaks down, so does intimacy, and the sex becomes robotic and meaningless.
Career – “We don’t always get what we want, but we always get what we need,” as the song goes. It is important to get working with what you have rather than waste time fretting about what you want or over how you think things could be.
Health – Hard work now can lead to tiredness which in turn leads to despondency and so make sure you eat well – avoid heavy foods like pastry and red meat, eat more fruit and take Vitamin B12 and potassium.
Love – Virgo are very comfortable with their sexuality and you can actually help your partner or a new partner becoming more comfortable with their sexuality.
Career – Today it is all about doing what you enjoy and being creative – forget the details and run with the inspirational and expansive or creative ideas for your business.
Health – You feel enlivened by competitive situations and Virgo women especially, enjoy the company of men and debate with men. Your physical vitality is strong and you have good energy reserves improving stamina so that you can work hard and play hard this weekend.
Love – A good time to be busy and productive as a couple; work on goals and work to make family life better, more fun and more dynamic.
Career – A good time to put together letters, memos or presentations which need a combative and direct tone that can set an agenda rather than just covey information.
Health – Mars square ascendant is a great time for Libra as you become less of a people pleaser and are able to say, “Hey where is mine!” and thus you take back some ground lost by being too diplomatic.
Love – You can wear your partner out as you are very demanding – your high energy means you can just keep going and it can be annoying to you when your partner cannot keep up. It’s a hot kitchen with Scorpio, not for the faint hearted.
Career – Scorpio come on strong with opinions and ideas and you state your opinions forcefully and then assume others will go along with you, but you could get further if you are a little more open to listening.
Health – Scorpio have an obvious zest for life and you seek out experiences that are novel and varied. With an overabundance of energy you can become restless if you’re not constantly on the move.
Love – Sagittarians may be non-committal in new relationships as you are trying to find yourself – this can be frustrating for your new lover who will find it hard to read you and know how to please you.
Career – With Mars entering your second house being self-reliant and going with the decisions you make without looking back and without self-criticism is vital – hold your breath, close your eyes and jump.
Health – Avoid energy drinks and fizzy drinks with added caffeine and sweetener as these can make you very jittery and will keep you alert but not with an ability to concentrate.
Love – Your happiness in relationships is directly proportionate to your level of confidence – if you are in good shape in terms of self esteem you are happy now, but if self esteem is poor you are more combative and jealous.
Career – Capricorn are driven to accomplish what you guys set out to do no matter how hard. You throw energy at anything worthwhile today, quite relentlessly.
Health – You react fast to stimuli and so you need to take less of alternate therapies to get the same result. Avoid strongly perfumed products and any area with a powerful smell be it frying or roasting food as this can give you a headache.
Love – Private and passionate is the theme in love – you are more likely to be private about expressing affection i.e. you may act cool towards your partner in public, but behind the scenes at home you are red hot and ready to go.
Career – Other people respond to strength – nothing wishy-washy inspires or motivates – your strength of mind and soul is good to be around.
Health – Aquarians are plagued by a need to prove themselves in ways that are not ultimately very nourishing: so what if everyone thinks you have a cool car or a designer label? When you are alone, do those same things that give you kudos make you happy?
Love – You demand independence today and want to do your own thing without having to explain or be curtailed – you are going to do whatever you are going to do and cannot be talked out of it.
Career – Pisces can be quite stubborn and you are not willing “throw in the towel” once you have selected a position, however you have a strong sense of fairness and will back down if you can be convinced that your position is hypocritical in any way.
Health – Eat more carbs right now, especially bananas, sweet potato, brown rice, oranges, apples and navy beans to boost energy naturally.
