Dear Taurus, this is your career horoscope for 2017:
Moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector and magnetic Venus in your career sector has no doubt allowed you to move into the New Year with luck and the support of the professional gods on your side. However, that doesn’t mean that you’re off to a busy start or that this is a year that will be all work and no play. In fact, you have had a chance, between Christmas and the end of 2016, to confront some old beliefs, excuses and maybe question what you really want on the job front. You may even move into the New Year feeling tired and stressed, ready for a nice quiet year. However, what you have is a major year for job growth and success, but nothing as urgent as first impressions or tensions late last year may have suggested. With Jupiter, planet of luck and expansion not leaving your work sector until the 10th October and even then, with a support crew keeping things going until early December, you are running a marathon and not a sprint. The last thing the professional gods want is for you to throw yourself into the New Year. Venus’ departure from your career sector on the 3rd January allows you to move into the year with your professional confidence, desires and expectations running high, but then will give you a chance to let things settle. Mars only left your career sector just before Christmas, with your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit also fuelled from the get go. It’s not until the Sun returns to your career sector on the 20th January that you’ll have a chance to regroup and with the spotlight on your career situation, matters and options, take a slow and calculated look at where to from here. Mercury will move through from the 7th January to the 25th January and it’s then that you’ll have a chance to get your head in the game, spend time at the drawing board and finalise your strategies for the coming year. While there will be no more planetary activity in your career sector once Mercury leaves on the 25th February, with a lunar eclipse here on the 7th August fate will be lurking behind the scenes. While Jupiter will keep the wheels turning on the work front until the 10th October, in retrograde motion from the 6th February to the 9th June this will bring a chance to regroup and pull back. You’ve been in the fast lane since Jupiter returned in early September 2016, so this will be a valuable chance to pull over in the slow lane. The Sun will return to your work sector on the 22nd September and Mercury on the 30th September, in time to shine the solar spotlight on Jupiter’s final weeks and with a chance to get your head in the game. Venus will return on the 14th October, just four days after Jupiter’s departure but along with Mars, who will move through from the 22nd October to the 9th December, they’ll stay on to ensure every advantage is seized and there is no untapped potential.
