The Financial and Career Year Ahead for Taurus
You lucky Taureans have a lot to look forward to in the next year as Jupiter, the planet of good fortune, growth, and expansion, shines down on you and your plans. Until June 4th when Jupiter enters your sign, it is time for developing proposals, devising your strategy, thinking things through, and deciding how best to move forward. Because from early June all the way through the end of May 2012, meaningful and favorable circumstances in a variety of areas are likely to come your way one after another, and you will want to be prepared. Your biggest dilemma may be deciding which ones to pursue!
The important piece to keep in mind to capitalize on this period of potential success is that you are your most valuable commodity. Your talents, your abilities, and what you can bring to the table better than anyone else are the assets that will help you be more prosperous in the year ahead. Furthermore, while Jupiter is in your sign, you may be gifted with insight and foresight of upcoming events, which if treated with respect may help you spin lead into gold.
If you are employed, there may be a big project that could become a significant stepping stone on your path to success by mid-July. If you are not currently employed, you will find listings increase as the summer gets under way. As mentioned above, future happiness will depend on how well you are able to sell yourself, without selling your soul.
Taureans are so very creative, and creative projects of all kinds are favored now and for some time. Even if you are not manually dexterous, doing anything that gives you satisfaction can be profited from financially. The more you are willing to put yourself into these projects, the more important they may become, perhaps eventually becoming a major source of income. You simply must have faith in yourself and your ability to create things of value.
Since late 2009 work hasn’t been much fun. You may feel as if you’ve been restricted and hindered by one challenge after another. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to change this year, but you can make the most of it by fulfilling your responsibilities well, avoiding gossip, and being a good team player, a role Taureans perform very well. Saturn, planet of restrictions, responsibilities, and obligations, is in your job house, and will remain there until October 2012, when things will drastically improve at work. Can we say, “new boss,” and maybe that new boss will be you!
Although it may seem obvious, networking will open many doors for you in the year to come. Social networks, friendships, special interest groups, and professional organizations are all ways to provide you with comfort, opportunity, training, and an escape hatch, if one should become necessary.
From now until early June, work on forming plans, making preparations, and getting ready for summer’s big push. Try to avoid becoming impatient or anxious during this time as it will only deplete your energies.
As we progress into June, the aspects turn more favorable to you and it is time for you to engage in putting your efforts into materializing the plans you have created. July is likely to be a busy time as you begin to reap some of the effects of your plans and hopefully begin to see some financial benefits from your efforts. Is the effort worth it? You will know by the end of July.
In August and September you may be traveling for business, pleasure, or both—in any case, be sure to bring your business cards with you wherever you go! October sees you laying a foundation for future growth, and patching up any missteps made until then.
From November through the end of the period, your creative juices come into full swing. During this time, having a creative outlet for your energies is extremely important for your success and the time when these creative endeavors should begin materializing significant benefits.
And finally, from early February to mid-April, you may find yourself feeling frustrated and impatient while Mars is retrograde in Virgo. Don’t let that get the better of you or cause you to discount your progress, because everything will turn right-side-up by early May when it becomes direct once more. By the time you celebrate next year’s birthday, you should be more secure, happier with your work, and more fulfilled by it, with perhaps an additional new source of income on the side.
