2017 Taurus Horoscope – Daily and Yearly
If there’s one theme to 2017 for you, as a determined Taurus, it’s discovering what are realistic objectives and what aren’t. You’ll also be giving serious thought to what you want to do and what is no longer of interest to you. This might seem obvious. But the fact is that as a Taurus, and what is termed a fixed sign, one of your strengths is your ability to organise your life based on your ideals combined with practical requirements and, having done so, to work hard to turn those objectives into reality. This single-mindedness endows you with a unique ability to focus on your goals, persisting even when faced with the most challenging obstacles.
While that resolve may enable you to achieve a great deal, it also means that you’ll run into difficulties when you need to alter those plans, either because circumstances shift or there have been changes in your own life. You value stability so much that you’ll sometimes even refuse offers because of the reorganisation they’d require.
Yet, with the powerful Mars having been in your sign for most of the last half of 2016 and remaining in Taurus until mid-February 2017, you’ve been in a process of questioning. You’ve had to examine exactly what you want to do and acknowledge that certain existing arrangements no longer serve or suit you.
This process continues as January begins and, in fact, with Mars powerfully aspecting the expansive Jupiter, and Neptune, the planet of both vision and illusion, in mid-January, what you learn could help you make important decisions. You’ll also be examining arrangements that haven’t gone as expected or disappointed you. With your ruling planet, Venus, retrograde, from 24 December 2005 until 3 February, minor reversals, surprises and personal insights force you to acknowledge various situations in which, previously, you’d insisted there was no problem.
Consequently, once you’ve ended the first two months of the year, you’ll not only have plenty to think about, you may even have an entirely new list of objectives, goals you’d like to achieve and experiences you’d like to make part of your life. Similarly, you’ll realise that there are arrangements – and certain individuals, you could well do without.
This makes sense since with Saturn, the planet of focus, the most practical planet of them all, actually accenting the structure of your life for all of 2017, you’re in a period of review. This raises questions about those areas of your life that you thought you’d never change: how you live, arrangements with family members. This also indicates a period during which you examine whether any habits developed in your childhood or any family attitudes influence or hamper you.
This process of asking questions won’t necessarily be a comfortable one. But what you learn will provide profound insights, particularly around the time of Taurus new moon on 27 April. Ideally, by then, you’ll have enough ideas and new objectives on your list of things you want to do that you’ll be looking ahead to the months to come – and even to the inevitable changes – with a certain amount of eagerness.
This sense of anticipation is wonderful. However, it’s important that you keep in mind that because 2017 is a year of analysis more than it is one of dynamic action, you may sometimes be frustrated. It might seem that every time you make any progress, you’re forced to pause and examine what you’ve done.
This particularly applies to achieving those long-term goals you’ve had in mind. While there will be no denying how much you’ve achieved, you won’t necessarily get as far as you had hoped. However, what you learn will be hugely valuable. These insights could even prevent you from making decisions that would cause you problems in the years to come. In fact, if there’s any one thing to keep in mind when you run into obstacles during 2017, it’s that they’re opportunities to learn in disguise.
Tempting as it is to force issues, then, view this as a year when you’ll not only learn from experience, but will spend time with those who can teach you – with loved ones, with colleagues and with partners. You will both benefit from what you learn during 2017 and strengthen your bonds with those who are most important in your life.
Taurus The Bull
April 21st to May 21st
Horoscope Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and the first of the earth signs. They represent the second stage in the evolution of man and his place in the universe, and is symbolized by the Bull.
In Greek Mythology, Orion the Hunter hunted Taurus the Bull as well as many other animals. The Greeks thought Taurus was Zeus in disguise. When Zeus first saw Europa who was the daughter of Agenor, King of Phoenicia, he fell madly in love and plotted to get her. One day while watching her picking flowers in this beautiful field, he changed himself into an all white bull. When Europa saw this white bull she went over and petted it thinking it very harmless. However when she decided to jump on its back, Zeus flew off with her to Crete where he ravaged her.
Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus which symbolizes love, aesthetics, eroticism and harmony. It is also ruled by the Second House which is the House of Finances and Possessions and represents the material things in life and what value we place on them. Taurus is also a Fixed sign which shows patience, endurance, and stability. They are very security loving as well.
Taurus Traits and Taurus Personality
Unlike Aries who is impulsive, Taureans never make snap decisions and they enjoy routine in their lives. Because they are ruled by the planet Venus they look for peace and harmony in their relationships. Taureans are also faithful and committed when in a relationship. Taureans are constant and it takes much to get them to anger but once they do they can become violent.
When Taurus gets involved with something they would much rather direct the action than be in the action. Taureans are not lazy people and because they are an earth sign they do well in any agricultural work. They are known for their practicality and responsibility and dislike change. Venus gives them a great appreciation of beauty and art. They stand fast and unwavering in their beliefs through difficult times. Taureans are very amorous and being creatures of routine are not given to experimenting sexually. Unlike Aquarians who fear commitment, Taureans like it and are very loyal. They can be very possessive and if you hurt them they can throw jealous fits. They need security in their relationships.
Luxury and comfort and very important to the Taurean and they will work hard to attain this. To them wealth is security and stability and it is more important to them than any other sign in the zodiac.

Taurus Birthstone / May Birthstone
Sun in Taurus folks are persistent and focused individuals when it comes to knowing what they want out of life. The person with Taurus Sun is dedicated, and though they take their time in business ventures, they can be quite successful. If patience and common sense are needed to complete an important project, a Taurus Sun native is a likely candidate to get the job done. Once the person with a Taurus Sun gets the job done, they usually spend the money they earned on things that are pleasing to their eye for beauty. They like to have beautiful things, modest but organized and good-looking homes, and possessions to show themselves and other people their social status.
The things to watch for with this placement are inflexibility and closed-mindedness. When the Sun in someone’s chart is in Taurus, the ability to get stuck in one opinion or one way of doing things is high. Taurus brings a stubborn streak, and when the Sun falls here, this obstinate tendency is one with the ego structure. The best thing to do with this is to be aware of it, as once the person with this placement is aware of the tendency to inflexibility, it is far easier to deal with. Without this insight, a person can get caught in a cycle of immobility.
