Taurus Monthly Horoscope July 2024

Chat 'em up, Taurus! You're in social spirits to start the month as the Sun visits Cancer until July 22, heating up your third house of communication and local action. It’s a buzzy time intended to expand your perspective, bolster your communication and inject some lighthearted fun into the mix. After a hardworking June, reward your productivity by enjoying everything from block parties to industry events to catch-ups with your crew. Wherever you go, make an effort to connect with like-minded souls (your inner circle will gladly make the intros). Some of the people you meet may become fast friends or collaborators before the end of the year.
Whether you’re escaping the summer heat at the beach house or hanging out at the park, you might want to stock up on snacks and fill the cooler. You could be playing spur-of-the-moment host fairly often. Keep your eyes peeled for community happenings like local restaurant week specials or pop-up vintage clothing racks. Even if they’re not quite as iconic as former J. Crew president Jenna Lyons’ impromptu NYC stoop sale, the world around you is abuzz with activity…and you’re invited! 
Cancer also rules nostalgia, making this a lovely time to get together with an old friend over a round of Batangas (2024’s easy-breezy “cocktail of the summer,” made with Coke, tequila, lime and salt) or to schedule that long overdue FaceTime catch-up with your college bestie. Sibling relationships could also come into focus during this time. 
Just be mindful about RSVP-ing “yes” to all the invites coming in. Are you genuinely excited about hosting the next group picnic, or do you just feel obligated to do so? Balance out your social demands with downtime. For Bulls staying in town, fire up your imagination by taking in a new gallery exhibit or checking out your local theater for this season’s marquee lineup. Go to a movie alone or with a laid-back friend. Never underestimate the power of art to soothe your senses.
Use these breathers as an opportunity to assess your true friendships and needs. Taurus, you can be loyal to a fault, a steady fixed sign who shows up for the “difficult people.” However, with sensitive Neptune making its annual retrograde through Pisces and your group-activities sector from July 2 to December 7, you might decide to pull back from certain relationships that are draining and feel one-sided. 
An important question to keep in mind as you sift through your existing relationships: Do you actually like the current company you keep? Neptune helps dissolve stagnant structures to make room for bigger and better. With Saturn and Pluto also retrograde for the rest of summer, it’s an ideal time for more reflection and prioritizing.
Neptune is often associated with escapism. Are you spending way too much time online, doomscrolling and swiping through all the feeds? Neptune’s reversal is an ideal time to cut back on your screen time and enjoy more mindfulness: time in nature, better sleep, beach reading. 
When the Cancer new moon arrives on July 5, your third house of communication gets a burst of fresh-start energy. An exciting project or partnership could unfold over the upcoming six months. Conversations today can move from talk to action, so be sure to follow up with an email or a DM. Refresh your digital profiles and stay alert for events where you can network with like-minded colleagues. Since new moons herald beginnings, you never know where an exciting chat might lead! 
This fresh start could also involve a physical move as you start to get more serious about your future. Has there been an aspirational location that’s felt out of reach? Instead of your routine stroll around the block, try walking or driving through your desired area for inspired visualization. With all this Cancer energy activating your third house of neighborhoods, you might come across the perfect starter home or beach house of your dreams. 
While you’re ordinarily hesitant to switch things up TOO quickly, a catalyzing Mars-Uranus conjunction on July 15—in Taurus no less—could break you out of your comfort zone. You might wake up ready to revolutionize your entire life. Take a beat, Bull! Bold action can do wonders, but if you try to change everything at once, you will wind up freaked out and overwhelmed.
As Mars and Uranus connect in your personal-style zone, your inner fashionista might feel an urge to overhaul your wardrobe. Whether it’s a vibrant pair of sneakers adding an edge to your date night look or refreshed “athluxe” staples that set your summer-casual work ‘fits ablaze, bold Mars and quirky Uranus are your rebellious partners in crime here to elevate your aesthetic sensibilities. 
On a deeper level, the planet of action (Mars) and the planet of innovation (Uranus) have been leading the charge for greater personal freedom and independence, especially when it comes to your relationships and resources. Consult your personal agenda and pick ONE area to tackle next. Since you’re on a roll, what’s one activity you can let go of to open up space in your calendar? 
This isn’t the first time Mars and Uranus have come together in your first house of selfhood and fresh starts. They last united here in August 2022 as part of a combustible cocktail that brought dynamic change. This time, however, will be the last time that these planets meet up in Taurus in our lifetime, making it a significant turning point around your identity. 
Don’t be surprised if you start resisting entrenched social expectations and leaning into more authentic self-expression. You might even begin to draw a few ingenious souls into your orbit who mirror your emerging new style. 
A curious mindset will serve you well on July 21, when the second of summer’s two full moons in Capricorn arrives, helping you release any hindering self-beliefs or stagnant patterns. Look back to the first Capricorn full moon on June 21 (and the January 11 Capricorn new moon) for clues of what could manifest. Today is the follow-up to any exciting opportunities and seeds planted then. With the moon in your worldly ninth house, you could pack your bags—or a backpack. The no-limits ninth house emphasizes travel, study and personal growth. A budding business venture could take flight under these entrepreneurial moonbeams, or you could get a chance to speak in public or appear in the media. The only “requirement”? Be willing to take a leap of faith and seize the moment!
Need another reason to press “go,” Taurus? On July 20, right before the full moon, ambitious Mars moves into versatile Gemini and immediately forms a harmonious 120-degree trine to transformative Pluto. After blazing through Taurus since June 9, Mars shifts into your money zone, helping you profit from your uptick in courage and confidence.
Mars in Gemini is ideal for brainstorming and networking while Pluto can magnetize power players into your orbit. As Mars and Pluto travel through your money and career houses, you never know which novel idea(s) could take off. Who says you have to pick a lane? Opportunities that were floated months ago might find their right timing now.
Your home and family become the focus on July 22, when the Sun shifts into Leo for a month. As the Sun settles into your domestic arena, sneak in some restorative solo time—slip off for a meditative fly-fishing trip or bask in nature while catching up on your reading. Devote some of these long summer days to bonding with the most nurturing people in your inner circle. If you’ve been putting off a home improvement or personal creative project, Leo season is a good time to tackle it. A female relative, possibly your mother or a child, could figure into events now. 
But first, there’s an intense start: The Sun will immediately stare down shadowy Pluto in their once-a-year opposition on July 23. With the Sun heating up your home-centric fourth house and Pluto overhauling your career sector, you may struggle to walk the work-life tightrope. Taurus, you obviously have to follow this exciting new trajectory! But it can’t happen without much-needed time alone to recuperate, and that will be a balancing act. 
For example, a family member or close friend could selfishly demand your attention without regard for your boundaries. Instead of caving, set a clear limit, and do your best to communicate it without exploding or lashing out. No matter how angry someone makes you, do NOT go for the jugular. If you even suspect that someone could trigger you, reschedule plans for another day.
The need for quiet couldn’t be more timely as a period of deep soul-searching begins on July 26. Through December 29, “wounded healer” Chiron will be retrograde in Aries and your introspective twelfth house. Being strong, determined and relentless often solves your problems, but starting today, you may want to experiment with some different approaches. 
With Chiron reversing through your zone of closure, things can shift in radical ways, especially if you’re doing “inner work.” Everyone has a shadow side, and in this position, your explorations may accelerate. Old fears could emerge around your ability to provide amidst your transformation, especially after that immense breakthrough mid-month. 
Stay positive, Bull, even when things get a little heavy! If you start to feel overwhelmed, Chiron retrograde sounds the call to seek support. Work through any feelings of shame or failure that come up when you lean on someone. Beware a tendency to project your unresolved issues onto others. You might also heal old pain by helping others who are undergoing a similar struggle. No person is an island, no matter how resilient their spirit may be. Reach out and get the support you need.
