Taurus Forecast for 2018: Love & Romance
While all the focus is on your relationships this year, what planetary activity you do have on the romantic front is nothing to sneeze at. Unlike on the relationship front, where there isn’t a moment of 2018 where there isn’t at least one relationship god on the field, this year’s romantic focus sits in a band that starts on the 28th June and runs through to the 23rd September. This is a period of just under three months, but there is one special visitor this year. That visitor is Ceres, queen of nurturing, who makes her first visit to your romantic sector in four years, from the 28th June to the 6th September. The only other planets that will visit this year are the Sun, Mercury and Venus, but they will all arrive during Ceres’ watch and all starting with a deeper sense of what you want from love from the get go. It is when Venus, the planet of love meets up with her sister planet Ceres that the real magic will happen, from the 10th July to the 7th August.
Yet while romantic matters won’t dominate the whole year, there is a distinct pocket that you’re able to focus on. Relationship matters are a very different story, with lucky Jupiter in your relationship sector until the 9th November. Having only just returned in October 2016, moving into the New Year this is something you are still adjusting to at the start of the year. In Jupiter’s early weeks the Sun, Venus and Mercury all moved through, all doing their part to send you off on this new journey with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you. However, you start the year with both Mars and Jupiter in your relationship sector, making sure you not only have luck on your side from the get go, but your passions and fighting spirit fuelled. Mars returned in early December 2016 and won’t leave until the 27th January, giving you a solid start to the year. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships, both Jupiter and Mars will be determined to see you end the year in the kind of relationship you want. This really is a journey, with Jupiter in retrograde motion from the 9th March to the 11th July. This will be an important review phase. For it will be once Venus returns on the 9th September that support will arrive to help bring things home, something that will continue long after Jupiter leaves and right through to January 2019.
