This can be a big month for career progress, Taurus, but you have to keep your eye on the road and watch out for bumps and detours. Lucky and profitable Jupiter just entered your sixth house of efficiency and productivity in September for the first time in 13 years. This big, helpful planet will be in this part of the sky until October 11, 2017, so you will have over a year of its assistance.
Work conditions can improve as positive changes are made with personnel (divas get dumped, departments are reshuffled), technology (the boss finally springs for some new equipment or programs), and you could also end up working with better clients or projects. Self-employed bulls may end up hiring some terrific new people who will help streamline your operation. For all Taureans, the next year is all about operating lean and on target.
If you’re unhappy where you work, a perfect opportunity to move on occurs on the 1st, when a new moon takes place in this part of the sky. It’s also an excellent time to enter into a business partnership, sign contracts, or hire an expert to represent you or your company. An auspicious Venus-Neptune trine indicates that whatever you do next, it should be more inspiring and creative.
But don’t take on more than you can handle. Pluto and Mars are in a tough angle to the new moon, indicating that you could end up putting in long hours at the office, something to consider. If you’re not going to have enough time left over for your lover, friends, kids or you, chances are you could burn out and become resentful. The 6th could be a tough day when you feel overwhelmed by the magnitude of your work demands.
And don’t expect new job opportunities, business plans or projects to take off like a shot. Perform due diligence when it comes to vetting prospective clients, partners and employees. Keep an eye on the 6th, 7th, 13th, 15th and 20th as these could all be stressful for one reason or another. Projects can go off the rails, you may realize that a coworker or employee doesn’t have your best interests at heart, or important details are overlooked. Keep calm and remain focused.
That being said, intelligent Mercury enters this part of your chart on the 7th, easing communications and making your mind as sharp as a tack. The 11th can be a groundbreaking day when you can come up with far-reaching ideas that will take your career or company to the stratosphere.
The new moon on the 1st also falls in your house of vitality, diet and fitness, opening up a terrific window of time in which you can battle the bulge and become much healthier. Just don’t expect overnight success, or go into triathlon-training mode if you’re so unfit that you can barely touch your toes. Mars might “over inspire” you to try to take on the world, which could quickly result in injury, especially mid-month.
Things really start popping around the 16th when the full moon occurs in Aries, your twelfth house of closure. This tends to be a reclusive place where we go within, nursing old emotional wounds and getting rid of the people and things in our lives that just aren’t working out. We all get a full moon like this every year, but what makes this one so different for you, Taurus, is that surprise-a-minute Uranus is nearby, which could cause you to act very suddenly. As in: a romantic breakup that’s probably been coming for awhile but you weren’t motivated enough to leave. I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it any more, so take this job and shove it.
But you could also very spontaneously decide to chuck a bad habit, or embark on a fitness regimen and diet. You might finally ask that person out on a date, vowing to not to spend another Saturday night at home alone. Packing up and moving to another part of the country may become so appealing that you take action on it.
Romance gets a big boost in the second half of the month when sexy Venus sashays into your eighth house of intimacy and libido. This is also soulmate territory, so singles could meet someone who’s the real deal over the next three weeks. Then the fiery Sun enters Scorpio, your seventh house of commitment on the 22nd, followed by Mercury on the 24th.
The 27th absolutely rocks for holding conversations about amour with a Sun/Mercury conjunction. Things could get a lot more serious two days later on the 29th when Venus meets up with the planet of longevity, Saturn. Couples could discuss pregnancies, moving in together, or getting married, whereas singles may create a short list of the qualities they want in a new mate.
Keep it handy. The month ends with yet another new moon on the 30th in your house of commitment, which opens up a brand new chapter in love.
