Taurus 2017

2017 Overview

Taurus Horoscope
While you are starting the year with a dream start as far as both work and career matters are concerned, making it clear that this is a powerful professional year from the get go, it won’t be as overwhelming as first impressions would suggest. With a lot playing out on the career front in the final months of 2016, much of what is already in motion or needs attention will play out in the first two months of the year. Lucky Jupiter, who will spend the majority of the year in your work sector, making 2017 your biggest year for job growth in over a decade, is playing a long game. Not due to leave until the 10th October and even then, with plenty of support to continue to bring things home right through to December, you’re running a marathon and not a sprint. Even Jupiter will spend from the 6th February to the 9th June in retrograde motion. Once the initial push to get this professional year up to speed is over, you will be able to pull back. So while first impressions suggest both a good and a busy professional year, the good part will continue, but the ‘busy’ part will drop off. While a major year for relationship building will begin with lucky Jupiter’s return to your relationship sector, that isn’t until the 10th October, giving you time throughout the year to explore what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. In the meantime, pay attention to a sense of adventure in play during the first six weeks of the year, for while it will taper off a little a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure will run throughout the year. It is in December that this will start to take form, with the door opening to a three year period where travel, learning and discovery won’t just be something you talk about, with a chance to do something about it. In the meantime, this is a year when work/life balance will become a lot more important, with a chance to take a balanced approach to your home and professional lives, able to see both as equally important. There may also be some unexpected opportunities on the home, family and/or property fronts. Don’t be surprised if you find you lose your taste for operating in the fast lane from late January or that this will remain the case for much of the first half of the year. The more you appreciate the importance of balance, the harder it will be to buy into a rush mentality.


When lucky Jupiter left your romantic sector in September 2016 he left you with more than enough romantic momentum and also enough support to keep the wheels turning and the romantic flame burning. For the most part this will be a slow burn, but a Full Moon in your romantic sector on the 12th March will rekindle that flame. This year comes with a warning, not that there are any challenges or obstacles to be aware of, for that’s not the case, but a warning that Venus, planet of love is running behind schedule. Held back by a retrograde phase in the early months of the year Venus, who will normally return to Taurus during or just slightly ahead of or behind your birthday month, will be a no show. Your birthday month will come and go and still Venus will be nowhere to be seen, meaning that you’ll start your new solar year with no inkling of what to expect on the romantic and relationship front and potentially feeling unsupported by the love gods. Don’t despair, Venus is on her way and when she finally arrives on the 6th June she will make up for lost time. Arriving long after your birthday month is over, this allows Venus to grab your full attention and until she leaves on the 5th July, this is when you’ll get your first real sense that she really has come with good news. This year the love gods are backing everything into the second half of the year and in fact, things start to move just 20 days after Venus’ departure. After spending just under a month fuelling your romantic and relationship desires and expectations and giving you the confidence to follow your heart, this year’s romantic developments will start unfolding on the 25th July. A romantic chapter can run for as little as five weeks or as was the case, with Jupiter in your romantic sector from August 2014 to September 2015, for over a year. With so much momentum already created, just a short update would have been enough this year. Instead, what kicks off on the 25th July will continue to gain support right through to the 22nd October. It is Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion that will make September and October the most romantically charged months of the year. It is near the end of this romantic chapter that Jupiter’s return to your relationship sector on the 10th October will kick off not just the most important relationship months of 2017, but your biggest and most important relationship year in over a decade. Support will begin flooding in just days later and will continue right through to late January 2018. During that time every available relationship god will be on hand to get this exceptional relationship year off the ground.


There are two dangers this year, but none of them provide any kind of threat other than to your confidence. The first danger is that two years into a three year financial boot camp there could be a danger of expecting another challenging financial year and therefore you’ll be preparing for the worst, in trepidation. The second danger is that expecting another challenging financial year, there will be the temptation to stick your head in the sand. Yet just like going to the beach and finding it safe to swim between the flags, there is nothing to fear and so long as you ‘swim between the flags’, this will be an empowering year. If you’re going to face financial challenges you will have by now, so it will be a case of having already got on top of money matters or you know what you’re dealing with. After leaving your financial sector in December, Mercury will return for a rare double dip visit from the 5th January to the 13th January. Retrograding back in, until turning direct on the 8th January, his smart head for money will come with 20/20 hindsight. While the Sun left your financial sector just before Christmas, this will bring a chance, in the early days of the year, to return to the drawing board and finalise your financial game plan for the coming year. Until Saturn leaves on the 20th December, as long as you continue to ‘swim between the flags’ and take a responsible approach to money matters, this should be an empowering financial year. Mercury will return on the 5th November and this time, not leaving until the 11th January 2018, he will stay on, providing the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game and make Saturn’s final weeks count. The Sun won’t return until the 22nd December, two days after Saturn’s departure and with a three year financial boot camp having ended two days earlier, but not due to be repeated for another three decades, this will bring a chance to regroup. While this makes financial and money matters a slow burn throughout the year, income matters a much faster burn, with a not so small window of opportunity for the money gods to work with. That window of opportunity begins with Mars’ return to your income sector on the 21st April, returning with the sledgehammer and the battering ram needed to smash through any glass ceilings. With a flotilla of planets following in his wake, Mars knows that if he can focus on smashing through barriers that the other planets can capitalise on what this opens the door to. That flotilla of planets begins with Mars’ return on the 21st April and ends with Venus’ departure on the 31st July, with the first six weeks and the final four weeks potentially the most lucrative.

 About Taurus

Taurus is good at good living. This luxury loving sign enjoys wine, relationships and parties, and is a superb host. Taureans enjoy comfortable homes, sumptuous feasts and well stocked cellars. Known to be immensely stubborn, Taurus is also a loyal friend and partner. Security, both financial and emotional, is very important to Taureans. Placid Ruled by the planet Venus, Taurus would rather make love than war, and prefers a good meal to a good argument. They are quite materialistic, but delight in sharing.

The trouble is that Taurus tends to be more gourmand than gourmet, and doesn't know where to stop. Sooner or later all that good living is going to have to be worked off with some serious exercise. Make sure you watch the calories because things get downright ugly when all that good living goes to the Taurean waistline.
