Starting December, 20th, 2017): Intimacy Restored
Saturn transiting the eighth house during the last three years affected the intimacy of Taurus’ relationship. Raymond Chandler wrote that „the first kiss is magic. The second is intimate. The third is routine“. Taurus men and women – especially those having a long-term relationship – felt that true, during the last three years. From now on, once Saturn leaved the eighth astrological house, everything will go better, between Taurus and their spouse.
January 1st-March 8th: Happy Relationships
Jupiter, planet of growth, expansion, prosperity and good fortune, enters the seventh house, the astrological house of marriage and relationships. Many Taurus may commit to someone, move in with them, become engaged or even get married. I bet that the vast majority of Taurus will have a better love life, during this transit (now and also between July 10th and November 8th).
March 8th-July 10th: Need to Fix Relationship Problems
With Jupiter moving backward in the house of marriage and relationships, things become more complicated. There is still love, but you may confront some of the most common relationship issues. Maybe you spend more time apart than together and you start feeling neglected. Or maybe you spend all your time together, letting no space for privacy and individual growth. Or maybe you argue over money. The most important thing is to recognize that you have a problem and to discuss it honestly.
July 10th-August 6th: You Feel More Romantic
Venus, the planet and the goddess of love and beauty, influences your house of love and romance. The British novelist William Makepeace Thackeray made one of the most beautiful declarations of love: „When you look at me, when you think of me, I am in paradise“. The French novelist Stendhal made another one: „ If you don’t love me, it does not matter, anyway I can love for both of us“. Influenced by Venus, Taurus men and women will find their own ways to be even more romantic that those authors.
July, 10th-November, 8th: Happy Relationships
Jupiter is again direct in the house of marriage and relationships. I describe this influence above, for the period between 1st of January and March 8th.
October 6th-October 31st: The Art of Compromise
With Venus retrograde in the seventh house, you’ll need to master the art of compromise in your relationship. The magic words are „If you’ll do this for me, I’ll do that for you“. Both of you need to give up something, not just one of you. And both of you need to be happy. But not everything can be negotiate – know what your non-negotiables are before you start talking, and know what things you’re willing to be most flexible on.
November 8th-December 31st: More Intimacy
Jupiter enters the eight house, astrological house of intimacy. Last year, Saturn leaved this house and Taurus already saw their intimacy restored. Now, under Jupiter’s influence, Taurus men and women could have more partners, or spend more time with the one they already have. The importance of intimacy grows for Taurus and for their partners, deepening the emotional connection and strengthening their relationships.
