Mercury moves into your career and reputation sector today, dear Taurus, and will influence this area of your solar chart until February 10th.

This is a period for communicating with more impact and thinking up long-term strategies that will move you closer to your goals. Your thoughts and conversations more frequently revolve around your responsibilities during this cycle.

You might also be communicating with more power. You are creating your luck with a Mars-Jupiter trine in the works and encouraging you to follow your heart with courage.

It’s a powerful time for making an intimate connection. The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, and you’re ready to make a real dent in your “to do” list. This transit is terrific for taking care of errands and chores.

As much as you want to start a game today, rounding up a team might seem as impossible as herding cats. But the lack of participation does little to squelch your competitive spirit, nor does it lessen your odds of accomplishing your goals.

When the chance to earn extra credit or overtime bucks arises, you’re ready to shift your energy and make a solo drive in the direction of practical productivity.

The week began with a total lunar eclipse putting the Sun and Moon in opposition, during the Sun’s first full day in your career sector.

While any professional pressure or work/life balance tension has since dialled back, today marks the point where there is a serious attempt to turn this into motivation.

With Mercury spending his first full day in your career sector and the Moon not only returning to your work sector but into a friendly alliance with the Sun, where there was pressure there is now confidence and motivation.
