Taurus your january guide
1st-8th: Common goal. Get active in a group whose altruistic ideals are like your own, Taurus. On the 8th the Sun in your solar 9th forms a sextile to Neptune in your solar 11th, so your focus will aim you toward a common goal that involves helping others less fortunate than you are. Making a difference is at the top of your list of New Year’s resolutions, so go for it.
9th-16th: Plan to excel. Mercury conjoins Saturn in your professional sector (solar 10th) on the 9th, so set down your intentions for the year ahead. Creating a step-by-step outline that you can follow will allow you to excel at the job you do, and still allow time for you to be active in causes that you believe in. Your enthusiasm is at a high level, so strive to pass it on to others.
17th-23rd: Making an impact. With Mars conjoining Uranus in your sign on the 20th your passion and enthusiasm for a project you are undertaking could make you voice your opinions in a way that some will mistake for insensitivity. If you think before you speak, and then speak clearly and deliberately, you will have a great impact on your target audiences.
24th-31st: Togetherness night. This month’s Full Moon illuminates your solar 4th on the 28th, so make yourself fully available to those you love, and aim for togetherness. Why not arrange a potluck dinner and game night for family and close friends? Everyone you love can enjoy quality time, which means sharing a meal and competing lovingly.
