Taurus always gets tagged with things like “pleasure-seeking” and “materialistic.” That’s probably unfair, in most cases. You’re just as good at dishing out pleasure as you are at seeking it, and who doesn’t like a few nice things around? Sadly, there’s been just too much struggle in your life the last couple of years when it comes to those two very important parts of your life. Thankfully, 2010 marks the end of that long uphill struggle. Your pleasurable pursuits have been a little more restricted than you’d like over the course of the last two years or so. That’s over with now, so ... game on!
The big events this year will not so much be a matter of major happenings as they will be things that have been in the works and are slowly revealing themselves. In the last two years, you’ve put a lot of work into what makes you happy, while Saturn transited your solar Fifth House. Now that those pressures are finally being relieved, you’ll find you are finally gaining traction. Certainly, your love life and your career will feel the difference, but beyond that you’ll notice things going a lot better in other departments of your life. You may have already noticed some of these changes starting to kick in: the real results start happening around your birthday in 2010.
After a year when numerous possibilities opened up –- some good, some more challenging –- 2010 is going to be more a year of consolidation and advancement within your chosen career path. If you’ve faced uncertainty as to which direction to take things, this is good news. If you're unhappy with your current career path, take a look back at events of the past year. Possibilities opened up and contacts were made that will be of help in the next year -- even if you aren’t immediately aware of it. If you're looking for a promotion or increased credit in your work place, there are two time frames that will be most to your benefit: January through March, and September through October. These would also be excellent times to get your resume into circulation. Even if you are happy with your current position, there might be something even better out there. That, and having a choice, is rarely a bad thing.
As far as your actually money supply, Taurus has a certain reputation for being prone to over-spending, and there are two points in the year where this will be a serious possibility. June and July may see you shelling out more money than usual on things you may not actually need, like an overly lavish vacation. Secondly, the traditional pre-Christmas spending binge looks to be a little bigger than usual. Try to get that done early this year, and try not to overdo it. People naturally love you, Taurus –- you don’t have to buy that!
Regardless of where your romantic life is, the last two years have seen more than their fair share of stresses and strains. This has probably been due to material and circumstantial issues that have been largely out of your control. The good news is that you'll be getting a much better handle on where you stand in your own love life this year. Are you getting the love you want, and if not, why not? What can you do to change things? Ultimately, you’ll be able to rest assured that your reputation for being “good” at love and romance remains intact.
If you aren’t currently in a relationship, you can look forward to things changing this year. July through September will see a broadening of your social opportunities, with a real shot at a new romantic connection being made at that time. In particular, there may well be opportunities coming about either at your workplace, or because of what you do for a living (directly or indirectly).
In terms of the attention you receive from others, the first three months of 2010 see a distinct increase in the amount of attention you receive –- even, in fact, if you aren’t looking for it. A little ego-boost never hurt anyone, but if you're already in a committed relationship, be a little cautious. You may be tempted to cross a line or two. Some of the more constructive ways to use that energy is for business networking, and making social plans.
