This second half of January has been far from fun even if events have proved purposeful, and this week is no exception. It may feel as if you are pushing a cart up a hill, but you are gaining strength in the process. You’re probably not going to get a free lunch out of anyone, and few people are giving out compliments but what you achieve will stand the test of time.
Friends and colleagues could also prove their worth now, and those who don’t should be relegated to the bin labelled “acquaintances” or even “frenemies”. And if you haven’t yet had a major declutter or at least a filtering exercise, it’s time you did.

I may be smiling but I'm still not budging
Getting away from it all is January’s theme. You could be taking a holiday, visiting friends and family or making the most of the post-Christmas go-slow, but ideally you should be creating a strategy for how and when you can achieve one or more of your long-term goals. Your first task may be to recognize where your energies and patience have been misplaced. On or near the 7th something’s gotta go, and it’s not just the Christmas decorations. You are going to make more progress if you streamline your life and although your personal happiness is paramount this cannot be at the cost of your career. The 12th is a day for reaching conclusions, first and foremost regarding work.
2017 represents the end of a seven year cycle for you. Jupiter’s entry into your opposite sign in October and Saturn’s arrival in Capricorn in December both mark a new beginning, so you should treat the bulk of the year as a seeding ground. Work diligently towards your ends, whether they be of a material, financial and professional nature or personal, romantic and family-oriented.
The February and August eclipses are the big game-changers, precipitating events that alter your course and reveal where your priorities lie. Much of what is taking place in 2017 lies underground, under the radar, so making decisions that prove workable is going to be a major challenge.
This pattern will start to shift mid-year; even so, you’ll need to be flexible in your planning and tolerant with other people’s vicissitudes.
Love and relationships
Relationships take work. So, roll up your sleeves and prepare to put in some long hours. Jupiter’s entry into the zone of relating in early October marks the beginning of a year-long phase of marital improvements and important romantic developments.
A new romance begun this year, especially in June, could lead to marriage, and you should have patience with struggling relationships because they could turn the corner later in the year. Intimacy is the big issue for many Taureans, whether a partner appears to be closed off or sexually unavailable or you feel your needs are unaddressed.
Do not suffer in silence. Bring that elephant into the light of the living room, and if, by September, there is no change, prepare to put on your walking boots.
Work, life goals and finance
With Saturn in the zone of shared resources for most of 2017 austerity is the name of the game, but from September you should feel the economic pressures easing. There are highs and lows career-wise, largely driven by the eclipses of February and August, although work should be plentiful and your reputation on the rise.
Be prepared for business partners and employers to be hard to please and far from generous, but this too will change as the year goes by.
Property is also on top of the agenda with some of you selling/purchasing a home and others using the home as a source of income or a work base - July and August are key months here. Hold onto those dreams, Taurus.
It will pay you to be flexible. Once other people see you are prepared to give a little, they’ll meet you half way. You have standards and a code you choose to live by but as we approach the 2020s you’re going to be tearing the pages out of your rule book.
You’re going to have to think outside the proverbial box and reframe your goals and priorities. In 2017 you may well come up against people who refuse to compromise, so you are going to have to do it their way or walk.
New influences will be coming in from the third quarter, so have the courage to end relationships and commitments that are causing you aggravation.

Although he is something of a slippery fish when it comes to marriage and long-term, romantic commitments... The moon and Saturn are closely conjunct in Capricorn so he's not quite the cuddly bear you think he might be.
