You CANNOT wait for 2016 to end already, Taurus. Here's some beautiful news: you're not just getting your end-of-the-year wish – there's some delicious astro-icing on top. It starts with the mid-month Full Moon in your money zone. When you wake up on the 13th, you may feel some anxiety or concern about your finances, but trust that the stars are helping you figure it all out – finally. Something that's perplexed you over the last six months, especially relating to earning, spending and saving, can be resolved now. Just watch out for buying binges, because you might also be in the mood to drop some serious cash on something you totally want – but don't necessarily need. Mercury goes retrograde on the 19th, so try to do your holiday shopping early this year – and that goes double for booking holiday travel. Triple-check your itineraries just in case, even if it seems neurotic. If at all possible, try to make the Winter Solstice (falling on Wednesday the 21st this year) into a day of rest and reflection. The New Moon arrives on the 29th, on the same day that Uranus goes direct. This feels like a wakeup call, especially for your worldview and your desire to see more of the globe. If you can spend New Year's Eve on a tropical island – all the better.

This is a month you'll remember for quite a while, Taurus. Relationships are the reigning theme thanks to the late October New Moon in your partnership zone. You might be a bit obsessive about meeting someone if you're single. Attached Bulls could similarly and singularly focus on their lovers, to the exclusion of all else. But then BOOM – on the 14th, the Full Moon in Taurus arrives. This is your once-per-year opportunity to turn your attention back to yourself, with no guilt or regrets. Think back to the goals you set at your last birthday, and assess your accomplishments. If there is yet more work to do, no worries – you've still got time and this lunation will give you a major boost. After the 21st you shift from romantic love to sex – for the next four weeks it's all about getting your desires met. This powerfully culminates at the New Moon in your sexuality zone on the 29th. You're also preparing yourself for deep, abiding and essential change over the next six months – don't resist it.
