Taurus Monthly Love Horoscope

Your September Taurus Love Horoscope

It’s been a strained summer for many people’s love lives, thanks to Venus (your ruling planet) being in low-power retrograde since July 22. Good news, Taurus: On September 3, romance gets rocking again—or, at least it's no longer on the rocks—as Venus ends its six-week retrograde and turns direct (forward). At last!
Venus will remain in Leo and your sentimental fourth house until October 8, helping you make up for lost time. While Venus was retrograde, you may have noticed a slowdown on the romance front. Maybe you felt extraordinarily pulled to the past, reminiscing about when you met or pining for the one who got away or even just fantasizing about the best parts of an old connection. Your feelings may have ranged from nostalgic to sad, and there could have been some big emotional moments that were tough to paddle through. 
The fourth house rules home and family, and with diplomatic Venus askew here, it could have been tough to keep the peace. Partners who live together will feel less tension on the home front as Venus corrects course in this domestic zone. No more silly arguments over petty things, like how you squeeze the toothpaste out of the tube or dishes in the sink.
With communication planet Mercury retrograde in Virgo and your romantic fifth house for the first half of the month, it’s all the more essential that you practice patience with each other. This Mercury phase could also bring back a past love or extend some of the Venus retrograde pining a couple more weeks.
Getting your love life back into healthy, supportive terrain is your September mission. From August 27 until October 12, Mars is nestled in Libra and your sixth house of healthy living (AND loving). Couples may be inspired to get on the wellness wagon together. Enjoy the fall weather with bike rides, beach walks (they’re still open!) or even some volunteer work with a social twist. 
Couples could bond while handling the nitty-gritty details of life together, like making the Q4 budget or embarking on a household project together. Single Tauruses might meet someone through healthy pursuits or volunteer work. Be your friendly self at the gym or on the hiking trail. You never know who else is there!
With Mars in this analytical position, watch for a tendency to be overly critical of others or yourself. If you’re under a lot of stress, be proactive and get adequate self-care, building in plenty of downtime (massages, home facials, guided sound healings). And don’t be a stubborn Bull about doing everything yourself. There are plenty of talented, qualified people who’d be happy to step up and lend a hand—whether out of the goodness of their heart or for a small amount. Well worth it to keep you feeling balanced and whole.
