Dear Taurus, this is your love horoscope for 2017:
When lucky Jupiter left your romantic sector in September 2016 he left you with more than enough romantic momentum and also enough support to keep the wheels turning and the romantic flame burning. For the most part this will be a slow burn, but a Full Moon in your romantic sector on the 12th March will rekindle that flame. This year comes with a warning, not that there are any challenges or obstacles to be aware of, for that’s not the case, but a warning that Venus, planet of love is running behind schedule. Held back by a retrograde phase in the early months of the year Venus, who will normally return to Taurus during or just slightly ahead of or behind your birthday month, will be a no show. Your birthday month will come and go and still Venus will be nowhere to be seen, meaning that you’ll start your new solar year with no inkling of what to expect on the romantic and relationship front and potentially feeling unsupported by the love gods. Don’t despair, Venus is on her way and when she finally arrives on the 6th June she will make up for lost time. Arriving long after your birthday month is over, this allows Venus to grab your full attention and until she leaves on the 5th July, this is when you’ll get your first real sense that she really has come with good news. This year the love gods are backing everything into the second half of the year and in fact, things start to move just 20 days after Venus’ departure. After spending just under a month fuelling your romantic and relationship desires and expectations and giving you the confidence to follow your heart, this year’s romantic developments will start unfolding on the 25th July. A romantic chapter can run for as little as five weeks or as was the case, with Jupiter in your romantic sector from August 2014 to September 2015, for over a year. With so much momentum already created, just a short update would have been enough this year. Instead, what kicks off on the 25th July will continue to gain support right through to the 22nd October. It is Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion that will make September and October the most romantically charged months of the year. It is near the end of this romantic chapter that Jupiter’s return to your relationship sector on the 10th October will kick off not just the most important relationship months of 2017, but your biggest and most important relationship year in over a decade. Support will begin flooding in just days later and will continue right through to late January 2018. During that time every available relationship god will be on hand to get this exceptional relationship year off the ground.
