Taurus Career Horoscope for August 2014
Believe in yourself
One of the key issues of the month is the ability to sell yourself on what you're doing now or come up with a bolder plan for your professional life. Enthusiasm is a must, but it doesn't necessarily need to be seen by others. That's because August begins with the energizing Sun in expressive Leo and your 4th House of Roots. Convincing others of something is much less important than pumping up belief in yourself. Taking time for pleasure with family and friends is an excellent way to recharge your batteries. You might even come up with more creative concepts about your career when you're playing than when you're working.

Putting plans into concrete form comes more easily when mental Mercury enters earthy Virgo on August 15. The Sun's passage into this sign and your expressive 5th House of Creativity on August 23 combines charisma with precise thinking that enables you to present a complicated notion in a realistic form. Your alluring planet Venus joins generous Jupiter in Leo on August 17, which is creative, socially skillful and joyous. Imagining yourself in a more satisfying professional role is an inspiring first step toward making this kind of magic happen.
August 25 is a key date because of the New Moon in Virgo, which is excellent for training and developing fresh skills. But active Mars' conjunction with restrictive Saturn that day, and Venus' stressful square to Saturn on August 26, could put you in a bind. Any pressure felt at this time can either frustrate you or galvanize your commitment to your goals with a powerful display of power, passion and purpose.
