August 2017 Monthly Horoscope for Taurus
Channeled Message - Yours soul's journey is quite deep at this time.

This might prove to be a difficult task for you in the beginning, but will make more and more sense as the month goes forward. Mercury will be retrograde in Virgo, another earth sign. You might feel a tug between your own earthly needs and spiritual connectivity. This is a great month to send your focus towards something you truly can call your own!
