Taurus representatives, being a part of the Earth Element, should not expect any special benefits during the year of the Fire Rooster. On the other hand, no exceptional negatives are expected, and in fact this zodiac sign is going to be left to itself in many aspects. But in general, concerning the professional aspect of Taurus' life in 2017, this annual cycle is going to be successful for them, or rather, it can be successful, if Taurus is willing to use their head. It would require a serious preparation, this especially concerns those who are not self-employed. The crucial point is efficiency. Act as fast as you can, but of course, there's no need to sacrifice quality for the sake of speed. Besides, the decisions have to be reasonable and fast, instead of being just fast. This might turn out into a real challenge for many Taurus representatives, however, rest assured that you will be able to deal with it. The year of 2017 might easily become a landmark for your career, but at first you need to answer yourself - are you ready for this? Meaning, will your skills, in fact, be enough for a new position? If not, you, nevertheless, will be able to achieve the desired result, but it will be followed by such a crushing fall, that it will take you a lot of time to recover from it. So brace yourself, you have to learn how to repel any attack easily, regardless of how brutal it is. On the other hand, there's no need to get overworked, since it's not about the working aspect, it's about you.
It is crucial to note that the year of 2017 is not expected to bring Taurus representatives any significant "ups and downs" in terms of their career development, meaning that there won't be distinct moments, when it's necessary to pay particular attention to work, or when it will be reasonable to set your professional growth aside. The dynamics of a certain period will be determined solely by your own merits. The Moon, your supporter, will not be able to help you in this aspect, so at this point you will have to rely on Venus, being the patron of your zodiac sign. In other words, you should pay special attention to developing new contacts, in particular. If you have just changed jobs and you've been invited to a corporate event - do not ignore this invitation in any way. You need to engage in networking, even if you think otherwise. However, it will be quite unreasonable to start "office romances" or something like that. Such relationships are better to be postponed, so to speak, to the best of times, and at this point it will only hurt your career, and such relations can hardly "count on" any significant development either way. Also, there's no need to mix family and work, they both should be two absolutely separate aspects of your life. Otherwise (and it concerns in particular those Taurus representatives, running their own business), you will not achieve the desired position. In general, the year of 2017 is going to be filled with a lot of bright prospects, though there's no need to grab onto every single one of them. Focus on those, that are logical extensions of your current achievements. This is the most productive option.
