Dear Taurus, this is your general horoscope for 2017:
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.
