Again, it's an intense day emotionally as the Moon moves through emotionally volatile Aries and clashes with Pluto. The best way to handle the energies is to detox any bad feelings you have towards anyone or anything. Doing this ahead of the coming Full Moon eclipse is especially highly recommended! Every year comes with a slew of promises and pressures. Have you found out your number 1 challenge and opportunity in the year ahead? It's here in my free mini-guide that will help you to create, plan and predict your life.
The planets are quite nicely spread out across the top half of your chart right now, promising lots of good things. For one, your love life looks good, or as though it could get better. Financially and sexually, you have determined, assertive and sexy Mars helping you out, so chase whatever it is you want in either of those departments. You also have great stars for either travelling or booking your next adventure. And your career is on an upswing too. For more info about your week, call our Angel Card line: 1900 999 888
The start of 2018 is illuminated by a Full Moon in the communications part of your chart. This could see you tying up loads of loose ends and dealing with all the stuff you've been putting off. Once this is sorted, you'll feel an immense sense of satisfaction. Mercury's position forecasts money being discussed and divided up. There may be some confusion, but it's all straightened out by the 11th: that's when you'll be able to start thinking about what do to with any cash you have.
A definite fresh start is indicated mid-month. You want to expand your horizons: if you're thinking about taking up a hobby, signing up for a course or going travelling, now's the time to get planning.
As your ruler Venus changes signs on the 17th, your work or study comes into focus. Use your charm to get ahead and avoid confrontations with teachers or bosses if you can. Keeping your head down and getting the work done should be your main aim: someone may try to distract you: try to resist the temptations they throw your way.
As the Sun joins Venus on the 20th, you'll find yourself in line for a promotion or reward. It's nice to get the recognition you deserve, but don't take all the credit. Remember the people who helped you get to where you are today and let them know how much you appreciate them. It's also important that you're respectful to those in authority around this time - there'll be serious repercussions if you're not.
Feisty and passionate Mars leaves your opposite sign on the 26th. Emotions may be running high; use this to your advantage by engaging your significant other in some fun and games. Ignore their needs and there will be bickering galore! If you're single, you'll be looking for love in a very pro-active way.
Right at the end of the month, discussions about study or work lead to changes. Around the same time, the Lunar Eclipse in the home part of your chart points to family dramas. This won't last long though and you'll enter February in a beautifully calm frame of mind.
You are ruled by Venus, the planet of love and you're definitely the sign of the zodiac most associated with sensual touch. How incredibly romantic! But your symbol is a much-less-that-sexy... bull! No problem. The Bull side of your nature can be famously stubborn, for sure, but you can also bring out that Bull side of you when it comes to rolling around in the great outdoors and smelling the coffee. Get it?
It also must be said, Taureans have a reputation for being among the slinkiest between the sheets. If someone ever draws a ring around your belly button with melted chocolate and then licks it off, chances are they're a Taurus or have personal planets in that sign. What you want, in bed, at least, is for someone to make your skin feel good. You're not always the most overtly sexual of the zodiac, but you know what sensual pleasure is.
Your ruler Venus is all about The Pleasure Principle - in other words, anything which gives you pleasure, baby. Not that you're some hedonistic machine - far from it. In fact, you often err on the side of conservatism, which is just fine, but you know what you like and you know how to enjoy it.
As you might know, Venus also rules Libra. Venus in Libra is more about love whereas Venus in Taurus is more about money. This isn't to say that you are no good at love - not at all - but you are also good with cash. In fact, Taureans often manage save themselves nicely padded bank accounts. Of course, you could be reading this and simultaneously wondering where your next brass razoo is coming from. But rest assured that being born under the sign of Taurus bestows you with a certain cash sense which many others lack. Money might sometimes be tight but you are usually quite able to go out and make it.
You also have a refined and cultural side which makes you a fascinating person to be around. When you start talking about music and books and art, people around will prick up their ears and listen because you sound so impressive. Your mind just works well on these subjects. And if it's not quite art that floats your boat, then it's your innate sense of style and colour which draws people to you.
You're an aesthete and while I bet you sometimes wish you had more fire, others don't miss that in you at all - they like your steady nature. Taureans are fabulous because they are real and natural people and we could all use a little more 'natural'. in our lives.
