For people born under the sign of Taurus, January 2017 will be a rather successful, productive time. You will need to focus the better part of your efforts on the work sphere, while personal questions will recede into the background. Naturally, nobody is stopping you from doing otherwise, not even the complete opposite. However, if you go against the key astrological trends, prepare for the most unexpected (not necessarily negative) consequences. The moon, the benefactor of Taurus, will be your most faithful ally, and will help you to make necessary contacts. There would be significantly more positive trends if Venus, who is capable of influencing Taurus far more strongly, were to take the moon's position. However, "the Celestial Princess" will be quite inert, and will not be able to help you in key situations. Instead, she will give way to the supremacy of Pluto, who is not traditionally configured in the most positive way towards the Zodiac sign of Taurus. The result will be ambiguous, and at certain moments the likelihood of a difficult situation arising will be high. But it should be emphasized here that at this current stage of your life there will not be any situations awaiting you which you will not be able to cope with.
In January 2017, Taurus will probably be confronted with new people and new strategic decisions in the domain of work. This question will increasingly concern direct competitors, but not necessarily those who have their own businesses. Naturally, for Taureans who work for themselves the responsibilities will be several times greater, but their efficiency for positive development vectors will also prove to be greater. Those who do not work for themselves will lose the necessity to take drastic measures, but certain decisions will still fall to them, and here it will be necessary to do some hard thinking. On no account should you act contrary to the direction indicated by your immediate superiors. Even if you fundamentally disagree with their position, you must first attempt to dissuade those who determine your work plan. If this is possible (and this is possible, you just need pressure and a little bit of patience!), you will be able to choose independently the paths along which your current project (or projects) will advance. Under no circumstances should you stop halfway! Due to the influence of adversely configured celestial objects, at an unjustified stop you risk losing sight of all landmarks. If you "brake", you may never catch up with those who go ahead.
On the romantic front for Taureans in January 2017, it is unlikely that any particularly important developments will await, but this does not mean that it is logical to leave everything to take its own course, without considering possible consequences. There will be consequences in any case, but the type of consequences these will be depends on your personal decisions, of course. Do your best to engage when those near you are not in the easiest situation. The mere fact of this situation arising will probably irritate you. You will say, "It's your own fault", and you will be absolutely right, but this does not change the fact that the person needs help. If, however, you constantly poke at their mistakes, which they are already perfectly aware of, nothing good will be achieved, believe me. There is also no point in deviating from the direction assigned to you by those you have the strongest and most sincere feelings for. Even if originally the idea seems quite debatable, at least don't reject it out of hand. Think. Deal with the situation, and then everything will work out well, not only for you, but also for those who follow in line with you, so to speak, although sometimes the negative influence of Saturn may still come back and haunt you. Control outbreaks of baseless exasperation, and don't under any circumstances provoke your loved ones, as the consequences could be fatal to your relationship.
