Buckle your seatbelt, Taurus, because eclipse season returns this month. Thrills, chills and pas-sion are in charge after your ruler Venus moves into fiery Aries on the 3rd. You might notice that you feel more assertive than usual; totally let yourself go there. But tone it down just a notch as you approach the intense Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse on the 10th – because drama is sky-high. This eclipse hits your house of home, family, and domestic affairs, and this can cause some conflicts with the people your closest to. You can keep the out-of-control clashes to a minimum by deal-ing with feelings head-on, instead of letting them fester. Note: the weekend before Valentine's Day brings hotter, sexier energy than the 14th. By the Tuesday it's still pretty romantic, but a bit closer to the status quo. The 22nd is a hot spot in terms of tension and drama, thanks to a square between Mars and Pluto. Just a few days later a New Moon/Solar Eclipse touches down in your house of goals and friends. There could be a bit of drama with colleagues or your girl squad, but you can work it out if you look to the future – together.

Well, 2016 is now history, Taurus – admit that you're totally ready to get on with it. That will happen soon enough, but not before 8 January, when Mercury finally goes direct, allowing you to take action on the New Moon wishes you set at the end of last year. On the 12th the Full Moon wakes up your communication zone, bringing to fruition plans that you made about six months ago. It could be that a public relations or social media goal is finally taking shape in the real world. You might feel pretty emotional about it all, so give yourself safe space to express your feelings. Your ruler Venus will spend most of the month in sweet, watery Pisces, so there's always a sensation of dreamy romance around you, no matter what's going on – even if you're hard at work in your office. January's New Moon arrives on the 27th, and it's a stellar one for your professional prospects. In fact, this is one of your best moments of this exciting New Year – at least on the career front. You're not just the girl-boss – you're the boss of everything.
