You’re still being called to step outside of your comfort zone and pursue what brings you meaning and purpose in life. A growing restlessness over the years has seen you rebelling against life as you know it to gain greater personal autonomy and live life as you see fit.
The start of the year sees you immersed in a deep internal dive to get to the root of what passions get you out of bed in the morning, and what stands in the way of you more proactively following those passions. If you’ve been wanting to go back to school, travel the world, undergo a specialized vocational training, or indulge new curiosities, there may be a few considerations (and evaluations) of steps taken to further your efforts.
Circumstances beyond your control may be what brings obstacles. Journeys abroad, for example, could be disrupted by COVID-19 restrictions. A dissertation or manuscript scheduled for publishing may need extensive edits, or a professional license program that could lead to career advancement may be deferred.
Then, there is your mindset overall, Taurus. What you believe is possible and how willing you are to take a leap of faith may be impediments to dreams fulfilled, too. As you unpack what’s stopping you, new insights are set to be revealed.
These assessments and delays may feel more urgent the first few weeks of the year, especially if connected to your work and profession. Misunderstandings and setbacks around your efforts to soar are likely. But themes in effect all year demand a concentrated discipline and focus on your legacy and vocation, anyway. Be patient as developments unfold; nothing will resolve until February.
In fact, I’ve been saying that February marks the real start to 2022. This is when that clean slate we all look forward to will feel fresh and ripe for new beginnings. What’s more, dear Taurus, is that this truly is your year. Cosmic events favor you. The only thing you need to do, then, is follow your north star. This will require courage. You can trust that you won’t be led astray.
The influence of the planet Jupiter may connect you with people who support your efforts the first half of the year; friends, new contacts, professional affiliates, and other organizations may become your best allies. Expect to align with right tribe and community – like minds and shared causes – that further you along a destined path!
Once we reach the spring season, the pace of life will pick up significantly. This time of year always sees you motivated and energized, and with eclipses forthcoming during your birthday season, you will step even further into your A-game.
A solar event on April 30th falls in your sign ushering in a personal new chapter. A lunar event on May 16th, meanwhile, brings conclusions in important relationships; you may be ending a chapter in order to focus on your own growth.
In between these eclipses, however, Mercury will retrograde bringing all kinds of confusion, setbacks, and uncertainties as they pertain to what and who is of value to you. You may have to make a few tough decisions. But remember, the Universe is conspiring on your behalf all year long.
The summer months should feel lighter once Mercury stations direct in June and eclipse season reaches conclusion. Energy from the two lunations will linger, but at least you will have found clarity and know exactly where you stand. In fact, the planet Jupiter’s ingress of the sign Aries before summer starts will see you practicing greater self-examination as it pertains to personal goals and ambitions. You may decide to keep life low-key as a result, which would be quite fitting as life becomes less ambitions and more intentional centering family engagements, affairs of the heart, and activities of the mind.
By the time we enter the fall months, busy days ensue. Doctor appointments, new fitness routines, projects at the office, ongoing obligations, and other chores/responsibilities will keep your plate full. But another Mercury retrograde phase mid-September brings disruption to you regular affairs. The best way to navigate schedule glitches, undiagnosed health concerns, and other interruptions will be to practice patience. October sees forward movement where there’s been setbacks, especially as it pertains to a child, an artistic launch, or even a romantic partner that has become a new part of your day-to-day.
Relationship matters will take on greater focus in October, too, and activities that involve important others coincide with another pair of eclipses. The first solar event on October 25th brings a new chapter in an important partnership while the lunar event on November 8th brings an end to a personal chapter.
You may decide to merge with another leaving your single life behind. This could also be interpreted as the end of a personal phase of growth as you begin to invest in new commitments. What’s more, energy will amplify in between eclipses around money, finances, possessions, and resources of value to you.
This period of financial focus may feel a bit “manic,” dear Taurus. You may be negotiating a business venture, purchasing property with a domestic partner, or sharing/dividing assets in a marriage. There will be a lot of moving parts and considerations, and you may find that stalls begin to occur during this end of year period through January 2023.
I would encourage you to look back to energy unfolding on the money front late spring/early summer and be patient as stalled efforts endure in the coming weeks. There may need to be concessions made and flexibility on your part. If you are managing multiple financial portfolios, or negotiating several financial contracts, be sure to shift your priorities when necessary.
Personal and financial security are very important to you, Taurus. And so, as matters amplify regarding independent resources and resources shared, there may be some anxiety you must navigate. If you can adapt and adjust during this choppy end of year period, you’ll move through it just fine.
Overall, 2022 ends on a relatively fine note, Bull – remember, this is your year. Commitments and financial contracts feature entering December, and so too does travel, passionate interests and, again, those aspirational goals! Let curiosity be a distraction that brings you meaning entering 2023, and if ever in doubt, just call on your friends.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, TAURUS!
