Taurus Horoscope For July 2020

APR 20 - MAY 20


JULY 2020

Dear Reader:

Greetings from New York City, from my house to yours. I have been in quarantine since
March 17. Even so, I have not been binge watching TV shows—I have been using the time
to create surprises for you. I will have a big announcement in my Note from Susan Miller
in August, after these eclipses are over and Mercury has turned direct. There will be
other surprises coming down the pike, too. I have been using my time alone very

This month’s eclipse on July 4-5 marks the end of the Capricorn-Cancer series of eclipses
that have arrived every six months in pairs. The Cancer-Capricorn series rst began in
July 2018 and will end now. A new family of eclipses is staring up on the Sagittarius-
Gemini axis, and we saw the rst on June 5, a very tender, emotional full moon lunar

eclipse. Both Gemini and Sagittarius are focused on nding truth and justice, so the
emphasis will change from the Cancer and Capricorn focus on money, power, and



You have an interesting chart. For months, possibly over the course of two
years, you’ve been immersed in ninth house activities with one of the
following very much on your mind—international travel, publishing or a
broadcasting project (as writer/producer or subject), or an academic goal of
going back to college and getting that degree. Although this is traditionally
the area of your chart associated with distant foreign travel, these days that
does not seem possible given the pandemic outbreaks all over the world.

Alternatively, you may have been thinking about an immigration matter that
has been languishing in bureaucracy, perhaps waiting to get citizenship or a
green card or a visa. This pandemic has created havoc as governments locked
down, and now there’s a backlog. If you wanted to get trusted traveler
certi cation or qualify for TSA pre-check to speed your move through
security at the airport, that’s been on hold, too. It is a good thing patience is
your virtue, dear Taurus. There is an eclipse over July 4-5 that will fall in your
ninth house, ruling all the areas I have just outlined in this paragraph. This
eclipse will be the last one in the Capricorn and Cancer series, and eclipses in
this series will not appear again until 2027-2029.

Last month, in June, you came through two eclipses, and those lit up your
nancial eighth house, so you may have been thinking about doing some
money management over the June 5 eclipse (plus or minus ve day), or you
may have had surgery and been thinking about how much your insurance
company would cover.

The second eclipse of last month, June 21, was a new moon solar eclipse in
Cancer—a sign that has been strongly highlighted along with Capricorn over
the past two years. Each eclipse falls in different degrees, so unless the degree
of the eclipse matches, opposes, or is at a 90-degree angle to one of your natal
planets—or the Sun, rising sign, or natal moon—you would not feel it.
Fortunately, Capricorn and Cancer are both signs that blend well with your
Taurus Sun. This means that although initially you may have had dif culties,
you would be able to rise above them and even make changes work to your
favor. If your birthday falls on May 2, plus or minus ve days, you will be
especially favored by this July 4 eclipse. The same is true if you have Taurus
rising at 14 degrees, plus or minus ve degrees, or if you have the natal moon
or a natal planet in Taurus, Virgo, or Capricorn at 14 degrees, with the same
plus or minus tolerance.

The full moon lunar eclipse of July 4 might mark the arrival of papers to sign,
in which case you should hold off until after Mercury goes direct on July 12.
(Mercury started to retrograde on June 17 last month in Cancer, in your other
house of contractual agreements, and Mercury, no matter where it falls, rules
agreements and all communication.) Full moons tend to bring things to
closure, but the timing is off. This tells me you will be pressured to sign
quickly, but it will be vital to show the contract, lease, or any other legal
document to your lawyer rst. Tell your lawyer to take time with the
document—there is no rush. You will want to drag things out a little until after
July 12. You probably will have changes to make here and there in the
language of the agreement—and presto, it may take until July 12.

If you are out of work, you may nd work, and this might be an employment
contract. In that case and since jobs are hard to nd, especially in a pandemic,
you may have to sign it. The result may be that you will not be with that
company for very long, but at least you will have a job to trade against later.

Interestingly, Mars, the energy planet, moved into your twelfth house of
secrets on June 27, and instead of staying the usual six weeks, Mars will stay
in this house for six months, until January 6, 2021. You may be hired to work
on a con dential project and not be allowed to speak of it to anyone, not even
family. If someone has withheld a secret that would have been important for
you to know, the July 4-5 eclipse may bring it out into the open.

A rare and beautiful aspect will
occur on July 27, when Jupiter
and Neptune will be in perfect
harmony, 60 degrees apart,
signifying opportunity is at hand.
These two planets are very slow
moving and …your creativity will
be reaching an all-time high. ”
The twelfth house is also the area of the chart of healing, especially in the
psychological realm. This coming period, from now through early January,
would be an ideal time to see a therapist and talk over something that may
have blocked your progress, personally or professionally. Therapy opens your
perspective and can be very helpful in providing insights.

There is another way this placement of Mars might work out. You may have
had surgery or soon will and will need to have physical therapy for weeks, as
well as frequent tests or checkups. Mars will retrograde on September 9, so if
you have not yet scheduled your operation or dental surgery, do so for the
second half of July or second half of August. If you have no plans for surgery
or physical therapy, it’s possible you will act as a surrogate for someone else,
and that would explain why you will be dealing with medical personnel for

Be careful when it comes to protecting yourself from the virus. Wear your
mask and gloves when out in public and maintain social distancing. Your
region may not have an outbreak, but this virus is tricky and is on a mission to
infect as many people as possible. It seems to be programmed with a kind of
intelligence—it hopes you will be sick of quarantine and make yourself
vulnerable. Find things around the house you can do to make it more
comfortable—become a mini-Marie Kondo (the author of the best-selling
books on tidying up at home). With a pronounced emphasis on the twelfth
house, don’t let the virus be the reason you are having more-than-usual
interface with doctors.

Jupiter is in your solar ninth house, and although positioned ten degrees from
the full moon lunar eclipse, it will be just close enough to help you a little, by a

Note: I would like Jupiter to be in closer proximity, but it’s on the border line
of being signi cant or not concerning the eclipse. Besides, Jupiter is acting
like a scout planet, which means that once the full moon appears, the rst
planet it will meet with is Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck. If something jars
you at eclipse time, take a breath—chances are, something good is about to
happen, too.

The good part about this eclipse—and it’s a big one—is that surprise planet
Uranus in Taurus will be in ideal angle to the full moon lunar eclipse in
Capricorn and also in supportive angle to the Sun in Cancer. In this mixed full
moon, Uranus will bring lightness by way of an unexpected communication or

If your birthday falls on May 2, you will feel this eclipse quite directly. The
same is true if you have Taurus rising 14 degrees, the natal moon in Taurus or
a natal planet in Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces at the
same 14 degrees. In all cases, allow a cushion of plus or minus ve degrees.

Eclipses are different from normal full or new moons, and they have a
different timetable for when they deliver their news. Mars will reach 14
degrees of Aries on July 22 and may unlock the message of this July 4 eclipse.
You might nd July 22, plus or minus four days, to be an important time, both
in your own life and in the news of the world.

The new moon of July 20 will be the second new moon in a row that will fall in
your third house of communication, travel, and contractual agreements. This
indicates this might be an important focus of interest. (Last month was a new
moon solar eclipse in Cancer zero degrees. This month a normal new moon
will arrive in Cancer at 28 degrees.)

This is a serious new moon, as Saturn and Pluto will be close enough to
directly oppose it from across the sky. Jupiter is near both Saturn and Pluto,
but he is on the fringe, possibly helping a little bit, but not close enough to
partner effectively with the new moon and Sun. You may feel temporarily
overwhelmed, and if you have a contract to sign, it appears to be quite one-
sided with little assurances or bene ts for you but lots for the other side. If
you are signing, you must show it to a lawyer, even if you can’t afford one.
(Work out a payment plan in advance.)

This is the house of short distances, so if you do travel (most likely by car or
rail), your trip would more likely be to go to see family than to see a client or
accomplish a career-oriented goal. No matter why you go, the trip will have a
heavy mood with pressure from other relatives. Or the trip may have a
serious reason—a favorite relative may be in the hospital, for example, or
having special treatments, and you’ll go to bring your special brand of cheer.
(Your presence would be very much appreciated.)

Taurus is ruled by gracious Venus, and this month, Venus will be in Gemini—
your focus will be to make money, clear and simple. It would be advisable to
see clients or management face-to-face, but since travel these days is not
always possible, agree on having a few Zoom meetings instead, the next best

Mars and Venus will be close enough to set off sparks, and Mars is Venus’
mythological lover. This bodes well for you, dear Taurus. Now that you know,
this might mean you won’t mind staying in after all. At the new moon July 20,
Uranus in Taurus will signal Mercury in Cancer, bringing surprising good news.

A rare and beautiful aspect will occur on July 27, when Jupiter and Neptune
will be in perfect harmony, 60 degrees apart, signifying opportunity is at hand.
These two planets are very slow moving and will be within range of each
other all year. (They will meet in the same aspect October 12. These two
planets will be even stronger in October, for they both are retrograde now, in
weaker position.) My point in telling you this is that your creativity will be
reaching an all-time high. To use this aspect, you must work hard at your
artistic expression.

Here are clues: Jupiter is in your ninth house, so this aspect may bring special
bene ts in several areas. You may see your literary work published—perhaps
a highly imaginative and carefully written novel—or you may compose or
produce a song that becomes very successful. One of the creative arts that
you express will have enormous possibility for success and could be related to
music, art, dance, literary work (including poetry and screenplay writing), as
well as all aspects of design.

Life is getting better for you now that Venus went direct last month on June
24. Venus is your ruler, so not only will your love life improve, but all parts of
life will also show an uptick. It’s hard to make progress when Venus is
retrograde when you are a Taurus, so this is a relief. Get past Mercury
retrograde on July 12, and you’ll be feeling even better yet.

Please Note: On October 1, 2020, there is a full moon in Aries 9º,
not Aquarius 9º. We apologize for this error in our 2020 calendar.

Last month brought two eclipses, the rst, June 5, may have brought a change
in your income, or you may have had to write a check to cover a large expense
that you did not anticipate. You may have paid for tuition, prepaid your taxes,
or received a large sum of money as a cash windfall, possibly money from an
insurance company or other outside source. The eclipse on June 21 may have
opened talks on a new venture or project centered on communication.

The emphasis on writing, speaking, editing, translating, coding or other

communication efforts will continue and reach culmination at the full moon
lunar eclipse, July 4-5 in Capricorn. You may nish your manuscript, see your
book published, compose a song, or write an important legal brief, scienti c
white paper, or column for a website. Or you may be getting ready to bring
your podcast series or app to market. If you are an agent, you might take on an
important talent to represent.

If an eclipse touches a natal planet, Sun, or natal moon in your chart, the
actions and news that occur at eclipse time are always important and form
landmark markers in your timeline. Mercury started to retrograde on June 17
and will go direct July 12, so no matter how much pressure you are under to
launch a new product or to sign a contract early in the month, you need to
wait until several days after July 12 to put down your signature.

At the July 4-5 eclipse, Jupiter will be within proximity of the lunar eclipse,
suggesting that events wrought by this eclipse will ultimately work to your
favor, something you will see either immediately or in subsequent weeks or
months in hindsight. Also, Uranus, planet of surprise, will be in ideal position
to support the full moon lunar eclipse and Sun, so something is likely to come
out of the blue that will bene t you. If you work in a creative eld, you may be
winding up an artistic project that will likely be well received.

Money will be slow to come to you because of Saturn’s position, a planet that
proliferates paperwork, red tape, and delays. That is not to say you won’t
make money, but for now, receiving it seems to be parceled out in small bites,
not given to you in one large bundle. It might be that someone who owes you
will have to make a payment plan with you.

Mars is now in Aries, lling your twelfth house of privacy, a place Mars will
occupy for a very long time. Usually Mars spends six weeks in a sign, but in
2020, Mars will spend six months in Aries, until January 6, 2021. The reason
Mars will spend such an unusually long time in Aries is that Mars will go
retrograde from September 9 to November 13, and it’s important to note that
Mars retrograde is considered a poor time to begin new ventures or initiate a
new relationship in love or business.

Mars in the twelfth house may bring you into contact with medical personnel,
perhaps on behalf of a friend or relative, for this part of your chart rules
privacy and con nement for the purpose of healing, covering such facilities as
hospitals, rehab centers, nursing homes, and physical therapy centers, for
example. If this turns out not to resonate with you—and you do not expect to
check into one of these institutions—then Mars in Aries might have a
different in uence, and you may be working on a secret project that requires
that you sign con dentiality papers.

Alternatively, the time Mars spends in Aries, June 27, 2020, to January 6,
2021, will be a superb time to investigate psychotherapy with a professional—
this period is long and could bring a major breakthrough in that time. Mars is

comfortable in Aries—it is the sign it rules—so Mars will be strong and helpful
to you during this six-month period. During the retrograde portion, you can
delve into your past and discover what might have been a troubling incident.

The new moon in Cancer on July 20 will bring your focus to a family-related
situation, possibly involving your sibling or parent, and may require you travel
by car or rail to see your relative.

At the same time, you appear to have a lot going on in your ninth and third
houses which involves writing, communicating, legal documents, academia,
and international projects and relationships. One of these areas will require
your full attention.

Mars will reach an important degree on July 22, in hard angle to the July 4
eclipse, and trigger news related to that lunar event. There is no doubt about
it—it’s a busy month that will keep you on your toes.
