TAURUS WEEK 4 AUGUST
Taurus- Week 4, 27th August
Sun in Leo until 24th August, then Virgo
You are likely to be quite sharp intellectually, perhaps too much so. You may find that you are in conflict with other people because of your quick retorts. Some of your comments could well be quite cutting and cause others to react against you. You are not likely to be tolerant where you perceive people to be causing delays,
Love and Romance
You may feel distant or removed from those that you are closest to, or they may appear to be distant to you. This can be a time where your relationship is tested but this is not the time for starting a new relationship. Underneath all of this, you may well be feeling that you want to assert your individuality and be the person that you want to be.
Prosperity & Opportunity
You are not likely to be short of ideas when it comes to improving your material well-being. This abundance of ideas may well be a problem in itself in that you start projects only to abandon them shortly after in favour of something that looks to have more potential. You may find that opportunities come your way from all sorts of areas that you are involved in which may seem to be good fortune but in reality are because of past efforts.

Gemstone for August – Peridot
The ancient Romans wore peridot rings in battles as it symbolized strength and provided protection against the enemies.
Conversely, the ancient Egyptian priests ground the stone into a powder before mixing it with potent drinks to be used in ceremonies as they believed that drinking this concoction would bring them closer to nature. Peridot is regarded as a powerful detoxifying agent. The stone is also thought to improve blood circulation, enhance metabolism, strengthen the immune system and boost digestion. It also has the ability to eliminate stress and dispel apathy and exhaustion.
In modern times, wearing peridot jewelry can help increase financial solidity and contentment in your life. The stone is widely associated with prosperity, loyalty, love, honesty, faithfulness, and optimism. The notion that it reduces stress and eliminates negative thinking, can help enhance harmony, particularly in marriages and other human relationships. Essentially, experts in gemstone significance suggest that the stone can prevent jealousy and anger in relationships.
Furthermore, peridot can also help improve mental health and boost spiritual wellness. It is associated with the heart chakra, also green, and wearing it close to the heart is said to cleanse it of negative emotions, leaving the wearer feeling light, blissful and ready to love.
