There are some backroom deals taking place between the major planets in the solar system, which is important to be aware of. On the surface they are playing hardball, both with each other and with us mere mortals. Yet behind the scenes they are not only working together, but in our best interests. So if it feels like you're being challenged, either personally or professionally, it's because someone up there believes in you.
No matter how busy you think you are, make the time to embrace today's playful, romantic and creativity charged lunar vibes. The Moon's first visit to a playful part of your chart for the year comes just 11 days before the Year of the Rooster is due to begin. That's important, because for Taurus the Rooster is a year that is especially auspicious for matters of the heart. There is nothing like some playful lunar vibes to warm things up.
The Sun's final days in your financial sector are all about having your eyes open and head out of the sand. Yet with Mercury on board and especially all your history with him since early December, you've got the smart head for money needed to make it count. While you have until early February to finalise your financial game plan and resolutions, you've got to have an authentic starting point.
Despite the fact that 2017 is going to be dominated by work/life balance issues, with your home and professional lives of equal importance, this isn't the challenge it has pretended to be. Yet, there are times when it will feel like you're caught between a rock and a hard place, but work/life balance will work to your advantage. You will work better and stay on track for longer, if you put equal effort into your home and work lives.
While the Moon won't return for its first visit to your communication sector until tomorrow, there is already support in place to ensure the communication lines are open. Yet with the Sun now just three days away from your relationship sector you need every bit of support you can get. Not because there are challenges ahead and in fact the very opposite, with the path cleared for something special.
In the lead up to the Sun's return to your work sector in three days' time, make the most of any chance you can to keep your work hat off. This is giving you a chance to get ready for some busy times ahead, taking care of any housekeeping first. This is also a chance to look more to the big picture and that might include some major reflection. The kind of big questions you should be considering is how you earn your money, knowing that 2017 is the most potentially lucrative year in over a decade.
There are three planets who are not only having the biggest impact on 2017 individually, but collectively as well. This is making 2017 a huge year for professional gods and relationship building, but the third spoke of the wheel is communication and that is the glue that is holding everything else together. All your relationships are set to become a lot more important, making it more important than ever to ensure the communication lines are open.
Having Mercury back on board is helping you to the make the Sun's final days here count, but it is also a vital resource in preparing for some busy times ahead. Mercury not only brings the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, but brings 20/20 hindsight to the table. With life about to get much busier from next week, a smart head for money is the key to working smarter.
There is something about the Moon's first visit to your career sector for the year that is likely to trigger a new sense of confidence. Yes, this ensures your professional instincts are sharp during the Sun's final days in your income sector, but it goes beyond that. Your professional instincts are likely to be picking up on developments across the income, work and career fronts, developments that quite frankly you don't normally see or expect at this time of year.
What if the things you thought were problems or challenges, were actually opportunities? This reality could be starting to dawn on you, especially when it comes to the work/life balance tensions that came to a head in the final weeks of 2016. 2017 is a massive year for professional gods, but where you've been forced to pull back, work smarter and pace yourself, you're likely to find that this is working to your advantage. You might need to thank the roadblocks that have acted as timely speed bumps.
Now that the New Year and all its hype is behind you, you're starting to get a feel for what kind of year 2017 really is and chances are you'll like what you sense. Even any challenges in the later part of 2016 are likely to make sense, seeing this as life simply challenging your excuses. For the reality is, 2017 is a huge year that holds the potential for adventure, travel, going new places, learning new things and in general living life and all its experiences to the full.
As things settle down on the professional front you are now able to settle in for the journey itself. You've had a chance to return to the drawing board and by now should have a good read on the job and career conditions ahead. It's time now to turn your attention to the money. It is Mars' return to your income sector next week that is set to kick off the most lucrative months of 2017. If I were glass ceilings hovering over you right now, I would be very scared.
