August opens up with you living the absolute dream life in your domestic world, Taurus. You might even welcome a new pet or child into your home the first half of the month to add even more joy to your heart.
On August 8, Venus will be at a perfect trine to Jupiter, now in your 8th House of Shared Resources. There is a good possibility that you'll benefit from the finances of a family member, such as receiving an inheritance or major financial gift.
Career news is also exciting with a Full Moon at the top of your chart on August 15. You might be in the spotlight for a technology-related career endeavor that you've launched, or you might receive a special honor or award.
The real excitement, however, arrives starting August 18. Mars will enter your romance sector on this day, closely followed by Venus on the 21st. These two "cosmic lovers" will even embrace in a perfect conjunction on August 24, while also being perfectly trine Uranus in your sign from August 26-28. As if that weren't enough, a glorious New Moon lands in the same area of your chart on the 30th. Love is 100% in the stars.

MarkM: It will be less than 40 years and this country will fall apart as their oil revenues fall. There is almost no chance they will enter into the modern world and build competitive products or services. It is just the modern version of tribal rule and that part of the world has a 1000 years of Tribal history to overcome. In other words that is just the way it is.
