Your Taurus 2017 horoscope: What’s ahead for your Sun sign?
Adapted from The AstroTwins’ 2017 Planetary Planner
Taking care of business! That’s a big theme of this industrious year for you, Taurus. While it might not be the most glamorous era, you had your share of excitement in 2016. With expansive Jupiter in Libra and your sixth house of health and organization until October 10, your stability-seeking sign will be inspired to set your life on a firm foundation. A little “boredom” is welcomed, since curious Jupiter will happily fill those hours with new projects, learning and physical activity.
On October 10, Jupiter moves into Scorpio and your seventh house of committed relationships for 13 months. A new era of business and romantic partnerships begins, perhaps with a long-distance or cross-cultural twist. The last quarter of the year will be an interesting time for your closest ties, because while optimistic and adventurous Jupiter is here, structured Saturn will be finishing up a three-year tour of Sagittarius and your intimate eighth house that ends December 19. As starry-eyed as you may be about a new connection, stern Saturn will crack the whip, reminding you not to rush in or hand anyone the keys to the kingdom too quickly. You’ve learned from your mistakes (haven’t you, Taurus?), so give people a chance—but don’t forget to make them earn your trust! You’re worth the wait. And if someone DOES turn out to be more talk than action, at least you won’t have put yourself in a perilous position.
This year, the bulk of your luck will come from diligent, detailed work—the kind your sign specializes in.
This year, the bulk of your luck will come from diligent, detailed work—the kind your sign specializes in. Lucky and expansive Jupiter, the planet of abundance, will spend much of the year in Libra and your administrative sixth house. Your success hinges on a carefully crafted plan and well-timed execution, along with an eye for details. This is no time for taking shortcuts; rather, you’ll want to follow tried-and-true instructions and standard operating procedures. For many other signs, this would be a struggle but it suits the methodical Taurus nature just fine.
Lucky Jupiter is visiting your health and fitness sector until October, which could bring a burst of motivation to get your vitals in order, eat clean or kick a toxic habit. You might also get doctor’s orders to reduce stress or make a lifestyle change. With Jupiter in this healthy, efficient zone, you might also try a semi-prepared meal delivery service like Blue Apron, or use apps designed to corral life’s chaos into a streamlined system.
If you’re in between paths or launching a new venture, you might consider taking a “bridge job” to pay the bills while you go back to school for certifications, build your business or dabble in different areas to find your passion. The flexible hours and secure pay will take the pressure off and keep food on the table. The sixth house rules the service industry and also all things “green,” so if you’re switching fields, you might look into a solid path such as nursing, accounting or human resources. You could also move into the eco-friendly or wellness fields, perhaps even launching your own small business thanks to entrepreneurial Jupiter
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
Intimacy continues to be a serious topic as structured Saturn completes a three-year stint through your eighth house of emotional bonds and shared resources. You’re working through issues around trust, sex and all the ways you merge with another person—physically, emotionally and energetically. While you may have weathered some trials and even a possible breakup, Saturn has moved many Bulls onto terra firma. From this grounded place, you’re primed to meet a soulmate or take a mature new approach to long-term love. Two eclipses in your emotional fourth house could bring out a sensitive new side of you. Watch out in March and April when your ruler, romantic Venus goes retrograde. An ex or an unresolved drama could surface. This time, do the closure work for once and for all. Taurus Love Horoscope.
MONEY & CAREER
Get to work! Lucky and expansive Jupiter is in Libra and your systematic sixth house until October, a great time to roll up your sleeves and apply your hard skills to getting things done. Your work could involve the service sector, data, wellness or even an interim “bridge job” to pay the bills. With stern Saturn in your joint ventures house, you’ll want to be careful about mixing your money with other people’s. Learning to invest and put away funds for the long haul can be an exciting challenge, so work with a qualified and seasoned pro. In August, a lunar eclipse in your career house could bring a huge professional triumph or a change of path. Is it time to step into a leadership role…or to step down from a position you no longer love?
HEALTH & WELLNESS
Salud! Lucky Jupiter is visiting your health and fitness sector until October, which could bring a burst of motivation to get your vitals in order, eat clean or kick a toxic habit. You might also get doctor’s orders to reduce stress or make a lifestyle change. With Saturn in your internal eighth house, the saying “as within, so without” holds true, so look into the mind-body connection. Get your blood tests and checkups—and look for a doctor specializing in “integrative” or “functional medicine that blends the best of East and West. Simplify your life, spend more time in nature and work with a therapist and/or energy healer to move past any emotional blocks.
FAMILY & FRIENDS
You’re a provider and a giver, but this year’s stars call for balanced relationships. You can easily attract “user-friendly” types who zap your time and offer nothing in return. A February Pisces eclipse could bring an exciting new tribe or collaboration into your sphere. Link up with like-minded people and do some networking. A pair of Leo eclipses in February and August fall in your home and family domain, which could bring a major relocation, a home décor overhaul, a pregnancy or shifting dynamics with a female relative.
