Taurus Monthly Horoscope

January 2023

One of the most important events this month is something that you won’t fully appreciate just yet. It was Jupiter’s return to a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart late last month that saw him resume what he put on hold eight weeks earlier, which is the wind down of your current 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. You might be moving into a brand new year but not only is Jupiter still closing old doors but Uranus will remain in retrograde motion in Taurus until 23rd January. However these two planets, one the planet of luck and expansion and the other the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, share a common destiny. That destiny is the major new doors that Jupiter will open when he returns to Taurus in May, joining with Uranus for the first and only time here in our lifetime as you move into a new 12 year Jupiter cycle of expansion. While it might not seem like it during the early weeks of the year, you are preparing for some major new beginnings. Meanwhile, as is always the case the Sun is not only spending the first three weeks of January in an adventurous part of your chart but in harmony with Uranus. With Mercury in retrograde motion there until 19th January, this is a chance to take a journey into the past while also looking to the future and the journey ahead with confidence. While the Sun’s departure and return to your career sector on 20th January is the point in each year when the solar spotlight shifts onto your professional game, the new professional year will be well underway by then. It is on 3rd January that Venus will not only join Saturn in your career sector but just five days before he moves into the final two months of a three year visit. Venus will be here when Mars turns direct in your income sector on 13th January and until leaving on 27th January will take advantage of the dwarf planet Ceres’ first full month in your work sector. The year is getting off to a good start across the income, work and career fronts.

There is a little bit of everything and just what you need to get the year off to a good start on the romantic and relationship fronts this month. While Venus, the planet of love will leave an adventurous part of your chart on 3rd January, knowing that once she leaves she won’t be back until 2024, she will be working overtime to bring the spirit of romance and adventure together. This is the second time in as many years that Venus has begun the year here but unlike last year, when she didn’t leave until March, Venus is barely brushing the early days of the year, creating a sense of urgency. The spirit of adventure will have plenty of support after Venus leaves, making keeping that alive the key to also keeping the spirit of romance alive. This will get an additional boost when the Moon makes its first visit to your romantic sector for the year from 11th January to 13th January, with the potential to make these the most romantically charged days of the month. As the Moon moves through it will form a friendly aspect to the Sun and remaining planets in an adventurous part of your chart, giving the spirit of romance and adventure an additional boost. Meanwhile, the Moon will make both its first visit to your relationship sector for the year and the last while Uranus is in retrograde motion here from 16th January to 18th January. As always this is a valuable chance to check in and become more emotionally engaged, but in the early days of the year but with Uranus still in retrograde motion, there will be an overlapping of a desire to look to the future while still needing to look to the past. It is just five days after the Moon leaves that on 23rd January Uranus will turn direct, with a chance then to look to the future. Until then, the doors are still open to the past.

January 2023

When the Sun left your financial sector just before Christmas it took the solar spotlight off your financial situation and money matters while at the same time ending all planetary activity on this side of the financial fence until later this year. This is the side of the financial fence where the focus is more on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, allowing you to move into this new financial year with everything you need to stay on top of things. However, the money gods themselves have moved on and their resources have now been redeployed to the income side of the financial fence. This is where the focus has been since Mars returned to your income sector in August for what is normally a six week visit, but with a retrograde turn in October keeping him here until March. It was while the Sun and faster moving planets moved through your financial sector in November and December that they clashed with Mars, who in retrograde motion was already taking a back seat. This may have created some financial tension, but this is something that the warrior planet of the cosmos is already turning into motivation. As you move into the New Year it might feel like things have stalled and that is because they have, but for all the right reasons. Mars is slowing down and will come to a complete stop in order to turn direct on 13th January, something that will release the brakes and allow everything that has been held back to rush forward. It is 10 days earlier that two events will help you exploit the doors still open to the past, second chances and untapped income potential and prepare for the turnaround ahead. The first is Venus, the planet of money’s return to your career sector on 3rd January, beginning her mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. It is just minutes later that the Moon will return for its first visit to your income sector for the year from 3rd January to 4th January.
