You may need to spend some time doing your own thing early in the month Taurus. Or there could be a need to take better care with your privacy, secrets or information that is sensitive for some reason. Jupiter and Uranus are in opposition on the 2nd and you might find someone being pushy with you or digging for information. Being fair minded and looking out for your own best interests is a good idea.
Your ruler, Venus retrogrades in Aries from the 4th, your 12th house. Again we see the theme of solitude, secrets or privacy come up for you. Perhaps you are less forthcoming with others about your love life, or less inclined to share too much information about your self with a new romantic interest. Spending time indulging yourself is appealing, but mostly in the privacy of your own home. Rather than go all out for fancy spa treatments, you would be happier with a DIY job or to relax on the couch and watch movies or read a good book. Get as much alone time as you can with this Venus cycle, or keep to just you and one other special someone.
Mars enters Taurus on the 9th, your 11th house of friends and collaboration. You will be in the mood for socialising, or perhaps to help friends out with things they need done. You are also more likely to work with someone now towards a common goal that benefits you both.
A Full Moon in Virgo on the 12th is in your 5th house. Romance, love, your children and your creativity are all in the frame. Something is changing, being transformed or coming to an end in this part of your life. The Sun and Pluto team up with this moon and bring your 9th house into the picture. You may be looking at travelling with a lover, or with your children. Study could also be on the cards and perhaps you meet someone through your university or college that sparks a romantic interest. Watch for a clash today with Saturn in your 8th house. Whatever is changing, coming to an end could be a struggle for you or someone else. Alternatively the 8th house also rules contracts and agreements so there could be an issue here around a divorce, child custody or a break up where agreement is hard to reach.
Mercury enters Aries on the 13th, your 12th house. Your 12th house is very important for the remainder of the month, which is somewhat at odds with Mars in your 11th house. While you have the energy for socialising, and working with others, you are a closed book while doing so. There may be a need for secrecy, or you just aren’t able to share things now because you aren’t even sure yourself what you think or feel. The Sun follows Mercury into Aries on the 20th and this puts the spotlight on all 12th house issues. Do you need to take steps to guard your privacy? Is it time to update passwords, cull email lists or check your social media privacy settings? Have you found that someone has let you down with information and it’s time to shut that leak down?
A New Moon on the 27th also falls in Aries and your 12th house. A new chapter or fresh beginning is now underway and it may involve solitude, a search for better ways to protect your privacy, or signal that much of what you are doing in the coming six months is secret or requires absolute discretion. This moon teams up with the Sun and Venus also in your 12th house so you could be cozying up to a new romantic partner or just trying to get as much alone time as you can with your current one. A clash between the moon and Saturn also occurs today and again your 8th house is causing the problems. Someone is ending, or a contract or deal could be contentious. Information you would rather not get out could spill into the public arena or just spread further than you would like.
Jupiter and Pluto clash on the 30th and this sees some issues for you around your 9th house. Something about your daily routine is causing problems for you now. Time could be hard to come by, or money. This will make studying difficult or plans for an overseas trip could get upended because you haven’t committed to saving the money, or taking the necessary steps to make it happen.
Mercury moves into your sign on the 31st and your 10th house. While this is good news for your communications around career and business, it will retrograde from the 9th April so it’s not the time to sign a deal or make any big changes. You will find communication is going ok, but as each day passes there will be more delays or cross wires leading into the retrograde. Leave all your big purchases or commitments until early to mid May when Mercury is direct again.
4th - 10th July
People are letting their emotions run them this week showing empathy helps you to get them to see things from your point of you. If you take a dispassionate approach to people’s concerns now, you won’t win them over to your side. Partnerships are difficult to negotiate with Venus and Uranus clashing. If you remember to keep your approach warm and inviting, you will do much better.

Friends may be instrumental in the big moments surrounding your love life this year Taurus. A Full moon in Virgo during March, is the standout period for your romantic and creative life in 2017 and much of what happens then, involves your friends. A friend may introduce you to someone special, or you could find yourself re-evaluating a friendship and finding it turning into a romance.
For the rest of the year you are very career and business focused, and it seems romance plays second fiddle to other priorities.That doesn’t mean there won’t be other chances to enjoy your love life or make time for it. Late July and the first two weeks of August help you to speak your mind in a key relationship, or to find a connection with someone who is very easy to talk to. For the rest of August it’s going to be a bit hit and miss with Mercury retrograde in your 5th house. You might want to concentrate more on your family, particularly around the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21.
Mars amps up the action in your 5th house from early September and then Mercury and Venus also enter the picture by mid September, making for a lovely romantic period right through until mid October. To start over in a relationship, or to prioritise meeting someone new, aim for the New Moon in Virgo on September 20th.
The asteroid Pallas is also in your 5th house in October, however it is retrograde over this month. For singles, there may be a rethink about how mature a love interest is, or a desire to find someone with more maturity than past partners. Those in relationships find there is an imbalance either between the intellectual aspect of the relationship or around goals. This could be where your New Moon start over in September sees you become much more particular about the intellectual or spiritual qualities of your partner, or someone with romantic potential.
Late April through to early July are the big money periods for you, although there is some good news coming right at the end of the year too. Mars enters Gemini, your 2nd house from April 21 giving you the drive to try and get more cash and sort out your finances. But it’s in May when money becomes a bigger focus as the Sun enters Gemini on the 20th, then 5 days later a New moon in Gemini spurs you to start a new money related project, or make fresh goals.
The Sun in Gemini, and Moon in Gemini, team up today so mark this one in your calendar to make initiations and resolutions around your finances. You could also sign a new contract or agreement which brings in more money, or be starting to see the rewards from a project you’ve been working on which will raise your bank balance.
Mercury joins in from June 6th and just after Mercury leaves, Venus enters Gemini in early July making this three month period very important for your finances. You will see some sort of results from all of this around December 3 with a full moon in Gemini. The first money from your earlier project may be coming in now, or you get a clear idea of what sort of return you can expect from an investment, or as a result of the efforts you’ve made to improve your financial position.
Your work or business life occupies a lot of your time this year, although family will also be a huge priority for you. There may be some issues for you in February as your career prospects take off, but you are also preoccupied with family matters, particularly around February 10th as a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo falls in your 4th house of family.
Something is wrapping up nicely in a family situation now. This brings a sense of relief, or accomplishment, however make sure you aren’t putting career matters too far down your list. Mercury is in your sign now for 19 days. The communication planet will be back again in April, however will spend most of that time retrograde, so you want your most important career initiations and tasks ticked off during the March cycle of Mercury in Taurus.
April 26th bring a new moon in Taurus,your 10th house, and friends are instrumental in your success. Perhaps you are launching a new business venture with a friend and if so, this is the date to be getting very close to having everything in place for your big idea. Do all of your work towards this goal in the 4 months before this new moon. Mercury will still be retrograde, however it is in Aries and your 12th house of secrets.
It will pay to not talk with outsiders about what you are planning. Mercury comes back for another visit to Taurus on May 15th and by now is direct and in your 9th house. Perhaps what you are working on involves foreigners, people based internationally, or will require you to travel over long distances.
Another stand out period for you in career and business comes August 7th with a Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Aquarius. Family are important at this point and perhaps you find them helping you to move up the ladder, or they are taking part in your venture. I don’t see any money aspects on this day, so any help from family doesn’t appear to involve cash or other financial support. The remainder of the year is about plugging away at your goals and just getting on with things. While that may not sound terribly exciting, the ups and downs you've experienced over the last few years have played havoc with your emotions, your money and your career. You get a break from that roller coaster in 2017 and can finally get back on an even keel. Something you will appreciate more and more as the year unfolds.
