The practicality of this sign is to the liking of the Yellow Dog, and so the current time cycle will in many ways make a strengthening of your financial standing possible. Another rather important aspect is your ability to work, and, as a result, your earning potential, will depend directly on how comfortable you are. In other words, freelancers and businessmen who have an established business will get special advantages.
However, in this regard there is one principle-based aspect. Your efforts and achievements could come to nothing if you... fall in love! It sounds quite strange, but the position of Venus with respect to Mercury is clear: at the current stage overly strong feelings are quite inadvisable for you. Future relationships could easily prove to be 'empty' or, quite the opposite, you might really meet your 'significant other'.
It isn't possible to predict the outcome, but it's not necessary either. Just be prepared for the fact that you will have to choose between your heart and your duty. Fortunately, a benchmark or, shall we say, the textbook choice between the chance to earn well and the chance to passionately tie your life to another person (even if it's just temporary) will be the only real difficulty for Taureans for the whole of 2018. You will even periodically get lucky, which many other signs will be deprived of.
Although you shouldn't count on a blatant 'freebie', don't be surprised when a hopeless situation unexpectedly develops to your advantage. You shouldn't lend money to anyone now, not even for interest or under 'royal' conditions. However, if you yourself are in need of additional funds, don't hesitate to approach friends and loved ones. First of all, they will be happy to help you. Secondly, this will be a truly appropriate step from the perspective of purely economic realities. Thus, on the whole, the year of the Dog will be really favorable for your sign.
