Taureans are strong, loving, and grounded. These qualities will help them persevere through the manic changes that 2022 will bring. It’s time for the bull to put their game face on because challenges will be underway, but the obstacles of the new year are still no match for a headstrong Taurus because 2022 is the year you crack down on discipline. It’s a long year filled with shock and change – something you don’t typically warm up to very easily. You’re being tested to be more comfortable outside of your element and are learning hard truths when it comes to friendships and relationships. When you can focus on your needs and respect your own boundaries, you’ll easily get used to all the uncertainty that may come your way.
Taurus, Who You Really Are
Taureans are grounded, romantic, and headstrong. Comfort is highly important to the bull, so you’ve earned a reputation for being homebodies and recluses, but it’s only because you’re comfortable in your own solitary. It’s also because of a Taurus’ need for comfort and cosiness that they are seen as lavish and leaning towards a life of luxury, wealth, and material things, which is in line with the fact they’re ruled by the second house of possessions and materialism. You can be sensitive when someone disagrees with you, and you aren’t afraid to stand your ground.
Best not to get in the way of a Taurus as they will protect what’s theirs, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. That’s because they’re ruled by Venus, the planet of money, beauty, and romance. It’s important for you to feel validated in your personal beliefs, so you can be sensitive to change and uncertainty because you’re a fixed sign. And because of this, you yearn for consistency, so commitment is of utmost importance. As an earth sign, you’re strong on the details and are highly connected with nature and your surroundings.
Career and Money
The planet of finances will be in retrograde for most of January – from 1 to 29 – and it will be stationed in fellow earth sign, Capricorn. The structure of your financial plan should be taken seriously, so if you want to avoid any mishaps at work or disruptions to your streams of income, diligent saving and smart spending are crucial. This should be relatively easy for you, seeing as Capricorn energy will give you the comfort and structure you need to get through it. In fact, you will feel empowered as you work hard towards a goal, whether it be starting a new professional journey or putting in extra work, overtime, or a side hustle to maintain your lavish lifestyle.
On May 28, Venus will be moving into your sign, with you feeling more confident and comfortable about where you are financially, so it’s best that you take advantage of this auspicious time. Is there a business you want to start, but are worried about funding? Are you interested in pursuing a certain career, but don’t know where to start? This is the time to investigate these matters and get to the bottom of what you want in terms of profession. 2022 is all about getting your finances in check so you can fund your next big project that will be extra supercharged come Leo season, which will give you the confidence to launch your business or step into your new career goals.
Friends and Family
2022 is about to get really serious when it comes to your family, home, and origin. That’s because each eclipse season in the spring and fall is taking place in your native sign, so you may feel extra sensitive surrounding topics of structure in family. Beware of familial drama, which tends to happen during eclipse season. If you spend a lot of time at home, it could be time to take a step back and seek space for quiet reflection. You may yearn for a stronger connection with your family or simply learn to reconstruct what it means to be appreciated and comfortable at home. During this time, it’s important to ask yourself if you need to do a little extra housekeeping to feel truly safe and secure in your sanctuary.
When it comes to friendships, you may have a tough time navigating your social life. This could be due to a falling out or friendship drama, which is supercharged from January 18 to August 24, when Uranus takes you for a chaotic spin with Uranus retrograde. It could be time to sincerely reflect on whether you want to continue associating with your current friend group or if it’s time to move on completely.
Love and Romance
While Venus retrograde is teaching you valuable lessons when it comes to mapping out your needs and desires in your relationships, you won’t be feeling anything too heavy or harrowing since reflection and self-care are super important to you. With your willingness to look within and steer clear of any cosmic drama that may come your way, you’re equipped to really buckle down on what matters most to you so that your relationships can thrive.
You’ll find May and September to be particularly auspicious for your passionate love life as Venus will have you deeply connected and prioritised highly on your list. It’s important for you to care about self-care because reflection and shadow-work are thematic for you in 2022, so remember to strike a balance between making time for romance and nourishing your own self-love. If you’re single, it’s a good time to reflect on your needs in love as you will do for your friendships and family. If you’re committed, it’s likely you have a lot of unresolved strains in your relationship that will need a lot of investment to take care of.
Taurus, Your Year Ahead in a Nutshell
2022 is a great time to lean in on your personal growth. It’s time to be brave in the face of adversity, change, and disruptions. You may grapple with issues in your social life, but will be thriving as far as your public image and career goes. Take time reflecting on your deepest desires and challenge yourself to be inviting to new things to come.
