Overview for this Month: Taurus (All)

January 2014

While your spirit for adventure is strong this month, dear Taurus, watch for some communication snafus. Travel, legal, or educational plans may not be moving forward at the speed you'd like them to be. The 15th brings some surprising news or a sudden rush of activity. Likely, money shared, borrowed, or loaned will be big topics on the table now. With your ruler, Venus, retrograde all month, there will be a stronger need to work on your people skills and manner, although it's also important to listen to cues to take extra time for yourself and more time to arrive at important decisions. Work matters require the most sensitivity with Mars raging through your sector of work, health, and routines. There is good energy for health and wellness routines, fitness, and motivation for organizing, sorting, and working on important projects. However, there can be times when you do these things to excess, not always knowing when it's time to call it a day. Pacing yourself will help you to make the most of this time. Thoughts might often turn to the past in January. You may not be feeling a clear direction at this time, but the thinking and review process that you do now can help you to move forward feeling stronger in February. As the month progresses, business matters become stronger. The New Moon on the 30th brings strong energy for taking charge.

Taurus (Born April 21 to 30) and Taurus Ascendant from 0 to 10 degrees Taurus:

January 2014 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until January 19th:

The Sun continues to shine its light on your solar ninth house now. This is a cycle in which you seek to expand your experiences and awareness, whether through philosophical thinking, higher education, travel, or simply activities that take you away from your everyday routines. You may feel a little restless if you don't find ways to explore. It's an excellent period for looking at your life from a different perspective--a broader one--whether you initiate this process or you make contact with others who stimulate you to think about your circumstances differently. Your energy is strong, open, and friendly right now, you come across well to others, and you are a little bolder and adventurous than usual.

From January 19th forward:

The Sun illuminates your career and reputation sector. More than any other time of the year, your focus is drawn to your "place" or standing in the outer world, and your reputation. This is the time when you are more interested in, and focused on, accomplishing something important. Your competency is something that you are especially sensitive to during this cycle. You want to shine. Your vision is practical right now, and you want to see tangible results for your efforts. More contact with authority figures is likely during this period. Recognition is likely to come your way whether you ask for it or not, and the responsibility that comes right along with it! Do what you feel is right, keeping in mind that you are at your most visible during this period in the year.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

All month:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It's a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.

Venus is retrograde from December 21st-January 31st:

Venus retrograde in general: As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are periods during which we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well. Venus retrograde cycles are good times for creating budgets and financial plans, and for re-thinking our personal relationships. Old friends and lovers may re-appear, perhaps complicating current relationships. We are called upon to deal with relationship issues from the past. Events occur that seem fated or pre-destined. It can be a real challenge getting close to a lover during this period of time. Unorthodox, experimental, and non-intimate relationships may be favored. Relationships that have been especially challenging may come to an end during this cycle. However, strong relationships will survive it, even if there are a few bumps and bruises along the way. For singles, this is a good time for "eyes wide open" or experimental dating. It is not a time when people recognize the need for another person to complete them, or some people may be questioning whether they are with partners who actually fulfill them. This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs in your ninth house of faith and adventure. An argument over personal philosophies of life can get you into hot water, or you could be reassessing your faith, during this cycle. It may be that your larger, broader plans and visions don't satisfy you very much these days. This is a cycle during which you might redefine these visions. Venus rules your sign, suggesting that you could be distancing yourself from others, and questioning whether others are truly good for you. An old lover might resurface in your life, complicating the present. With Venus as your ruler, you are especially sensitive to all of the Venus Retrograde issues described above. Venus also rules your work and health sector, and the desire for satisfaction and warm relations on the job is likely strong now, but hard to get. This is an excellent period for reworking your finances. Take your time when it comes to major decision making.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until January 11th:

Mercury continues to transit your solar ninth house. During this cycle, you are especially fond of exchanging ideas with others, particularly your personal philosophies. You are inclined to take a broader look at things now, rather than concentrate on the details. You are communicating with more persuasiveness, enthusiasm, and optimism at this time.

From January 11th forward:

Mercury transits your solar tenth house. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month:

Mars continues to animate and energize your solar sixth house. Energy and initiative for work, health, and other daily activities increase. You are self-motivated when it comes to these matters. If there are disagreements and disputes that erupt on the job now, they may be due to a feeling of stress or impatience, or they could come from your desire to get things done independently. It's best to apply energy productively to completing projects that are unfinished or even to get ahead of yourself. It's a strong period for feeling motivated for starting a new health or fitness routine.

Taurus (Born May 1 to 10) and Taurus Ascendant from 10 to 20 degrees Taurus:

January 2014 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life. Anything that broadens your experiences attracts now. A lack of superficiality finds you straight to the point, interested in the truth of things. It would be wise for you to consider scheduling a vacation, adventure of sorts, or a course that expands your mind. These don't have to happen now, but taking the time to recognize your needs for escaping the daily grind, taking a few risks, and feeding your spirit for self-expression through some form of adventure or higher learning, will help you to feel good about yourself. The only caution with this cycle is that you could lose touch with managing everyday affairs and important details.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

All month:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until January 18th:

Mercury transits your solar ninth house. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind turns to bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now.

From January 18th forward:

Mercury transits your solar tenth house. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now.

Taurus (Born May 11 to 21) AND Taurus Ascendant from 20 to 30 degrees Taurus:

January 2014 Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
 

January 2014

 

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until January 10th:

The Sun continues to highlight your solar eighth house. Your attention turns inward, as well as to close personal relationships on a deeper level. Personal transformations, personal power, and intimate matters fulfill you most during this cycle. There may be a strong focus on other's money, such as the resources of a partner, inheritance, banking and loans, or taxes. You are more intense in your mood and disposition, and perhaps even secretive, at this time of year. You are more in touch with the deeper and even primal elements of your own personality, and more able to see these things in others. This can be a determined and personally powerful time of year if you apply the energy of this transit constructively.

From January 10th forward:

This month, with the Sun spotlighting your solar ninth house, your focus turns outward, away from the more personal concerns that have occupied your thoughts in the last months. More than any other time during the year, you are feeling most adventurous and willing to take a leap of faith. This is a cycle in which you seek a higher meaning to your life, and/or seek out new experiences that take you beyond the here and now, and beyond the mundane details of day-to-day life.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until January 14th:

Venus continues to grace your solar ninth house. During this cycle, your ideals in love are set high. You might become inspired by a loved one now, or someone might awaken a new perspective or way of thinking in you. You could also enjoy a trip, or a new adventure of sorts. In fact, you are attracted to anything that is non-routine and fare best when you are reaching out beyond your usual bounds. You might be attracted to people or even objects that are exotic or different in some way during this cycle. It's a good period for personal charm and attractiveness in general.

From January 14th:

Venus graces your solar eighth house now. During this cycle, a financial boost is possible, or you may gain financially through your partner. A deep and intimate connection made now could be revitalizing and even healing. You are more inclined to want to smooth over differences in a partnership concerning the sharing of power, intimacy matters, finances, and other emotionally-charged topics. Intimate relationships are intensified now. Either you or your partner want a deeper union.

Venus is retrograde from December 21st-January 31st:

Venus retrograde in general: As the planet of love and values, Venus retrograde periods are periods during which we re-assess what--and who--we value. It is a period that most astrologers consider inopportune for getting married or starting a new relationship. Major financial undertakings are not advised during this period as well.

This period is good for re-evaluating our relationship needs; but, again, major love decisions are best saved for after the cycle ends.

This Venus Retrograde cycle occurs mainly in your ninth house of faith and adventure. An argument over personal philosophies of life can get you into hot water, or you could be reassessing your faith, during this cycle. It may be that your larger, broader plans and visions don't satisfy you very much these days. This is a cycle during which you might redefine these visions.

Venus also rules your work and health sector, and the desire for satisfaction and warm relations on the job is likely strong now, but hard to get. This is an excellent period for reworking your finances. Take your time when it comes to major decision making.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Until January 6th:

Mercury continues to transit your solar eighth house. The ability to analyze and rationalize some of the deeper elements inside yourself and in your intimate life now can benefit you. This is also a good time for sorting out finances, particularly money shared or coming from other sources other than your own personal income. You might particularly enjoy discussing topics that you typically don't verbalize with someone special during this cycle. Anything taboo, mysterious, or puzzling can be especially fascinating for you just now. You have little interest in small talk. You are more aware of subtleties and nuances during this cycle, and you can use this increased insightfulness to improve your life.

From January 6th to 24th:

Mercury transits your solar ninth house. Not content to focus on mundane, practical affairs just now, your mind turns to bigger visions, thoughts, and ideals. You are open to expanding your knowledge base during this cycle, and communications from or with someone far away may be part of the picture. You are putting everything into perspective now, rather than compartmentalizing. Instead of simply shooting the breeze, you are more inclined to discuss broader philosophies now. Your inclination during this cycle is to think about the "big picture" rather than the mundane circumstances and details of your life. Missing appointments and other forms of forgetfulness could be part of the picture now.

From January 24th forward:

Mercury transits your solar tenth house. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until January 21st:

Mars continues to energize your solar fifth house. This brings increased energy and enthusiasm to romance, child-rearing, and creative or recreational endeavors. It can also bring some strife to these areas of your world in some cases. For the most part, however, a romance could pick up pace, you are self-motivated and inspired on creative and expressive levels, and your self-confidence is well-received by others during this cycle. You are more willing to take little risks and you are competitive in a mostly friendly way. In your enthusiasm to take the lead, try to be sensitive to and respectful of others' needs.

From January 21st forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar sixth house. You have more energy for work and your daily routines tend to speed up during this transit. Perhaps you have a larger workload than usual. It's a great time to take charge of your health. You have much energy at your disposal to pick up (or step up) a health and physical activity program. It might be hard for you to work with others in a harmonious manner during this transit, and disputes with co-workers are possible. If you are feeling especially angry, frustrated, or restless, it would be wise to find little projects and things to do so that you can channel excess energy constructively. If health is affected, fevers or infections are more likely.

Overview Horoscope:

While your spirit for adventure is strong this month, dear Taurus, watch for some communication snafus. Travel, legal, or educational plans may not be moving forward at the speed you'd like them to be. The 15th brings some surprising news or a sudden rush of activity. Likely, money shared, borrowed, or loaned will be big topics on the table now. With your ruler, Venus, retrograde all month, there will be a stronger need to work on your people skills and manner, although it's also important to listen to cues to take extra time for yourself and more time to arrive at important decisions. Work matters require the most sensitivity with Mars raging through your sector of work, health, and routines. There is good energy for health and wellness routines, fitness, and motivation for organizing, sorting, and working on important projects. However, there can be times when you do these things to excess, not always knowing when it's time to call it a day. Pacing yourself will help you to make the most of this time. Thoughts might often turn to the past in January. You may not be feeling a clear direction at this time, but the thinking and review process that you do now can help you to move forward feeling stronger in February. As the month progresses, business matters become stronger. The New Moon on the 30th brings strong energy for taking charge.
