Painting by Gregory Morss

Brace yourself for a wild ride, Taurus. 2014 brings about a fresh start in a new direction, one that you're ready to initiate. Expect assistance and support from the signs of Aries and Libra. Advertising, publicity and public relations favor you and you can stand to make enormous gains from these areas throughout the year. 2014 will be a year to remember as milestones occur and you're feeling in charge of your life, personally and professionally. March, July and September will be stand out months.

Your ruling planet, Venus, begins the year retrograde in Capricorn, your 9th House of publishing, overseas travel and highlights your spirituality. As January begins, it is best to take stock of your intimate relationships as some turbulence or frustration could ensue. Since Venus also rules money, art and what you do for pleasure, you could encounter some obstacles or reversals during this time. The good news? Venus moves direct on 2/1, in Capricorn, life suddenly picks up. Once February comes around, you will be in your element. You reap rewards via publishing and promotion from Venus (Your ruling planet) when it travels in the compatible earth element of Capricorn.    

Mars (Physical & Sexual Energy/Motivation) begins the year in Libra, your 6th House of repairs, maintenance and your daily routines until 7/25. You can get much accomplished when Mars is moving direct, Taurus. In 2014, Mars will turn retrograde on 3/1-5/19, creating a possible sudden reversal of physical energy, your motivation slows down or you could experience some sexual lethargy. During Mars retrograde in Libra, you could notice some past issues emerging with regards to your associates, where your health is involved or where repair and maintenance issues need to be addressed. This is a long transit of Mars. Mars transits Libra from 1/1/14 - 7/25/14. 

The good news? Mars enters Scorpio, your 7th House of marriage and legal issues on July 28th, strengthening your most intimate relationships. While it transits Libra, the emphasis falls on health, wellness and routines. Once Mars enters your 7th House on 7/28, the year begins the gain momentum. Expect powerful gains where money, your sex life and professional matters are involved.

Jupiter (Prosperity/Luck) begins the year in Cancer, a water sign that mixes well with your earth element. Cancer is your 3rd House of communications, siblings and short distance travel. Jupiter is referred to as the planet that brings expansion and good fortune into your life. With Jupiter in Cancer, (your 3rd House of communications) your way with words can propel you into the spotlight. Jupiter enters Leo, your 4th House of home, family, motherhood and issues from the past on 7/16-8/11/15. During this year long transit, you will see expansion in your home and family life. You could move, relocate or find that someone (such as a family member) moves in and your home life expands in ways you never imagined possible. 

Your ideal times for love in 2014 occur whenever the planet Venus transits an earth sign element. For you that would be when Venus occupies Taurus (5/28 - 6/23), Virgo (9/5 - 9/29) and Capricorn (12/10 -1/4/15). During these dates, you're feeling upbeat, less stressed and notice others will be more drawn to you. These are great times/periods for single or coupled Taurus. Couples can expect to get closer or make a serious commitment that is bound to last. Singles could meet a potential new love during these dates.
