Taurus December 2017 Horoscope: Love, Money & Career


There is a good chance that you will start the month feeling over worked, exhausted and with a touch of work tension and job pressure. Yet once you clear the early days of the month all but a busy rush will drop back. For you not only start the month with Mars in his final days in your work sector, but wrapping up a push that began with Jupiter’s return in September 2016. There hasn’t been a moment since then that you’ve been able to take your work hat off, with Mars making a last push to bring things home. The problem comes from the fact that Mars begins the month in opposition with Uranus, in a nostalgic part of your chart.

Yet their last opposition here in our lifetime, is more a speed bump placed strategically at the start of the month to slow you down. For there is a danger of burning out before you can make Mars’ final days count. It is once Mars leaves that he’ll join forces with Jupiter on the relationship front, for the first time since 2006. Not due to leave until late next month, this is when Mars will pour the same amount of passion he had been directing into work and job matters, into your relationships. With Venus leaving on the 1st December, this makes it important to listen to your heart from the get go.

At the same time there is another major shift taking place. In the same way that Mars illustrates the shift from the work focus of the last two years onto your relationships, there is a shift from the financial focus of the past three years and onto more adventurous matters. This shift is still in its early days and won’t really begin until Saturn leaves your financial sector on the 20th December, ending a three year financial boot camp. The Sun will follow Saturn out of your financial sector and into your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 22nd December and Venus on Christmas Day.

Love 2017Taurus December 2017 Love Horoscope

While Venus will leave your relationship sector on the 1st December, just to start the month with the planet of love and guardian of your relationships on board is a gift. Held back by a retrograde phase earlier in the year, Venus should have been long gone. Venus might leave in the first 24 hours, but like a bell that can’t be unrung, she’ll leave you with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships from the get go. If this were the only advantage that you and your relationships have this month, this would still be an advantage.

But as Venus leaves, she will leave lucky Jupiter behind and here until November 2018, this is when the real journey begins. With the Sun and Mercury been and gone and with Venus’ input, you’re able to start that journey with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. However, the relationship gods still have one more wildcard up their sleeves, with Jupiter spending just eight days on his own before things heat up again.

On the 9th December Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returns to your relationship sector, teaming up with Jupiter for the first time since 2006. With Mars not leaving until late January, they will see out the year together and spend the first four weeks of 2018 fighting for what you want and need from your relationships. The Moon will move through your romantic sector from the 9th December to the 11th December, with romantically charged lunar vibes adding to the magic when Mars returns to spice up your relationships.

Money 2017Taurus December 2017 Money Horoscope

Seven words sum up what this month represents, and those seven words are ‘Saturn leaves your financial sector this month.’ On the 20th December, a three year financial boot camp comes to an end, and the hard taskmaster of the cosmos will turn his focus away from your financial situation and money matters. Yet as far as Saturn visits go you have got off lightly, with Saturn well supported and in a more benevolent phase. Still, he will continue to demand that you take responsibility and remain accountable until his departure on the 20th December.

The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of December in your financial sector, with the solar spotlight on your financial situation and money matters until the 22nd December. Yet Venus and Mercury will compliment the Sun and Saturn’s often black and white approach. Venus’ return from the 1st December to the 25th December will see the planet of money not only work to attract opportunities but to fuel your financial confidence, desires, and expectations. Mercury, in retrograde motion from the 3rd December the 23rd December, brings the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game.

With Mercury not leaving until the 11th January, you’ll have a chance to regroup over the holiday period, ready to make some smart game plan and resolutions for the New Year. In the meantime, while there is a lot less focus on income matters, a Full Moon in your income sector on the 4th December gets the month off to a good start. What makes this a potentially lucrative Full Moon is that Mars will be in his final days in your career sector, working to bring this professional year home.

Career 2017Taurus December 2017 Career Horoscope

Regardless of what planet is bringing nearly 16 months of continuous planetary activity on the work front home, there is going to be some urgency and a final push to gain as much momentum as possible. When that planet is Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos, then you need to buckle up from the get go. Mars won’t leave until the 9th December, but with Mars’ visits every other year always setting a manic pace, considering he is charged with bringing things home, this could get extreme. The biggest danger is burning out before you reach the 9th December, after which you can take your foot off the gas.

Fortunately, there is a speed bump at the start of the month, with an opposition with Uranus on the 1st December designed to slow things down. The problem is, in order to do that this might create some work tension and job pressure, with a need to view this as your friend. What you want is a pace that ensures you gain every advantage and as much momentum from Mars’ final days as possible, but without burning out before you can achieve that. Think of work tension and job pressure as static on a radio. When you have the right balance between knowing when to keep your work hat on and when to take it off, this will drop back.

You want to leave nothing on the floor though, with the 9th December a day of celebration. While Jupiter’s 13 month visit ended two months earlier, this is when you can finally pull back and let natural momentum take it from here. There might even be a chance to take your work hat off over the holiday period this year.
