While your year gets off to an incredible start on the professional front, you will find that this is not as daunting as it may have appeared in the final weeks of 2016 or as demanding. For the first time in 12 years you have moved into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector, but not due to leave until October and already slowing down ahead of a retrograde turn in early February, after a push to get things started, the pace will drop back. It was over the last two weeks of December that work tension and job pressure is likely to have run high, especially if you tried to push through without taking time out to recharge your batteries.
That has all been sorted now and hopefully you’ll move into the New Year committed to working smarter. Venus’ departure from your career sector on the 3rd January will see that professional focus drop back even further, with a chance to let things settle until the Sun returns on the 20th January. Instead there is a chance to focus more on your social life this month, with Venus and Mars offering a rare opportunity to make this a priority in a way that you can have fun with it.
While Mars will work to foster personal and professional networking, Venus will be out to have some fun, creating some serendipitous conditions. If you haven’t already there is a need to take money matters seriously, though if you moved into the year with firm financial resolutions, you will have a chance to head back to the drawing board from the 5th January to the 13th January. In what is going to be a busy year, make the most of the fact that the Sun, as is always the case, will be spending the first three weeks of January in an adventurous part of your chart.
Taurus January 2017 Love Horoscope
To start with there will be little sign of help from either the professional or money gods and every indication that the professional forces that had ridden roughshod over Christmas, would continue to claim your full attention this month as well. However, things will start to shift in the early days of the month and while there is no way that you’ll lose the professional advantage you begin the year with, it does start to lose its stronghold. Matters of the heart get a boost with Venus, planet of love’s return to a social and serendipitous part of your chart on the 3rd January, where she will remain until early next month. Bringing the laws of attraction and synchronicity in play, Venus’ only visit this year is likely to trigger some of the most serendipitous weeks of 2017, with fate working hard in these early weeks to put you in the right place at the right time.
Because Venus will return for a double dip visit in April, it could be that events this month won’t be fully appreciated until then, with fate working in disguise. It is during this time that the Moon will make its first visits to both your romantic and your relationship sectors for the year. Moving through your romantic sector from the 15th January to the 18th January and through your relationship sector from the 20th January to the 22nd January, neither visit is likely to reveal anything you don’t already know and are more likely to confirm the desires and expectations you moved into the year with. With no challenges on either front, this is more a chance to listen to what your emotional responses are telling you and the whispers from the love and relationship gods during that time.
Taurus January 2017 Money Horoscope
For the third time in as many years but also for the last time for another three decades, you’ve moved into the New Year with Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos in your financial sector. Yet now in the third and final year of a three year financial boot camp, if you were going to have challenges you will know about them by now. Not due to leave until the 20th December, Saturn has the majority of 2017 to help you take your power back and get money matters to where you want or need them to be.
Yet most of this is likely to be revising what you already know. While the Sun left your financial sector just before Christmas, chances are you’ve moved into the New Year not quite ready to finalise your financial game plan for the coming year and may even be frustrated that you can’t. This block hasn’t come from you but the money gods, for with Mercury retrograding back in for a short double dip visit from the 5th January to the 13th January, this will offer a brief chance to return to the drawing board. In retrograde motion until the 8th January, for just three days Mercury’s smart head for money will come with 20/20 hindsight and this is what you’ve been waiting for.
This finally gives you a chance to learn everything you can from the last two years, ready now to make a financial game plan that better reflects where you are now and how to make Saturn’s final months count. Even if you did move into the year with a financial game plan, there will be a chance to revamp that game plan, during Mercury’s double dip visit. By the time the Moon moves through from the 22nd January to the 25th January, you’ll be ready to commit to your financial game plan for the coming year. In the meantime, coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, the Moon will move through your income sector from the 9th January to the 11th January, just as your new professional year is taking off.
Taurus January 2017 Career Horoscope
Moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector is not an everyday experience and instead was last experienced 12 years ago. Yet to also move forward with Venus in your career sector is an even rarer experience, especially at the same time. Mars only left your career sector just before Christmas, so your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit has already been fuelled, with a clear sense of what you want from the get go.
With Mars not returning until late January and Venus leaving on the 3rd January, not to return until 2018 either, the early days of the month are crucial for having a sense of what excites you. Don’t worry about the ‘when, where and how’, for with Jupiter in your work sector until October there will be plenty of job growth to keep your professional passions and dreams alive. It is the Sun’s return to your career sector on the 20th January that will usher in a more objective phase and if Venus and Mars’ mission was to reveal the ‘what’, then the Sun will return with a chance to focus on the ‘when, where and how’.
With Mercury not returning until early next month, but then spending the majority of February here, this will give you plenty of time for the follow through. Moving into the New Year with Venus in your career sector and Jupiter in your work sector makes the Moon’s first visit for the year extra important. You’ll have an intuitive read on work matters from the 18th January to the 20th January, while you’ll start the month with your professional instincts sharp. Moving into the month with the Moon already here, after leaving on the 2nd January there will be time for a second visit, from the 27th January to the 30th January. The first visit will be during the ‘what’ phase and the second through the ‘when, where and how’ phase, triggering a New Moon on the 28th January.
