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.

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.
