2021: Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: The summary of the year resides here; details of the year are below.
The spotlight is turning to your career or life path goals in 2021, dear Taurus, and you’re ready to build or rebuild. You are doing your professional and public life quite differently, and you are capable of solid success.
It’s very appropriate to push your career forward this year and to put more of yourself into your work. The extra effort will be rewarded. However, it’s best to do so at a deliberate, steady pace.
Rule-breaking Uranus continues to transit your sign, encouraging a different approach to your life, particularly on a personal level. You could be presenting yourself in new ways with this exciting although somewhat erratic transit.
You’re known for your rootedness and desire for peace and calm, but with electric Uranus transiting your sign again this year, you’re surprising people. It’s a good idea to distinguish between rebellious behavior and authentic self-expression. Make sure you’re making choices for yourself instead of only reacting to others or your situation. Make it a mission to recognize your needs for calm and detox from time to time.
Jupiter and Saturn have moved to your sector of career and reputation. Certainly, these transits can bring more pressure to your life, particularly on public or professional levels, but also the potential for substantial rewards.
These transits bring your responsibilities to the “outside world” to light, and at times, to the test. It’s a pivotal period for you regarding the structures you’ve built and your career or reputation. This can be a time of harvest on career fronts, achievement, recognition, and new responsibilities. Others are taking you more seriously, which can be rewarding, but at times stressful. It can also be a time when poor past decisions come to light. It’s best to follow the rules and get organized during this significant transit.
This can very well mark a career peak or turning point. It can be a time to step up to the plate and take responsibility or take the lead and manage your life more fully.
There has been some heaviness connected with thinking, belief systems, attitudes, travel, or education, and some of this pressure is releasing in 2021.
You are moving towards a more authentic life path, and detachment from some aspects of your past is necessary. Fortunately, you often feel fresher, more energetic, or more expressive this year.
The year involves you more intensely with your work or status and material goals. Career winds are shifting!
Ideally, you begin 2021 knowing yourself a little better after Mars spent the second half of last year in your privacy sector. On January 6th, Mars enters your sign. Mars in Taurus (from January 6-March 3) is a time of increased vitality, courage, energy, and independence. Use this time well!
From mid-May through to the last week of July, you’re in a fine position with friendships and acquaintances or your social life, in general. You’re likely to come out of your shell more often, connecting with others through networks or with associates and groups to your benefit.
Venus, your ruler, turns retrograde every eighteen months or so, and in 2021, it begins its retrograde on December 19th. It can be a time of slowing down and reassessing some of your recent circumstances or decisions. Rest, reflect, and reconsider during this phase.
Special attention to your income, resources, valuables, and natural talents can be most important in 2021. Eclipses are encouraging you to get your assets sorted and to grow more comfortable with your talents. Near the end of the year, a new set of eclipses in your sign begins, setting a theme for the next two years when it will develop further. You’ll be exploring your independence and one-to-one relationships. The Lunar Eclipse in your sign in November is sure to open your heart to your needs along these lines.
Key Events in 2021 for Taurus:
Outer Planet Transits:
Jupiter square Uranus and sextile Chiron in January. These aspects can produce some rebellion and a strong desire to break free from limiting circumstances. While we should watch for abrupt moves, it’s also a good time to open our minds to new methods.
For Taurus, this can be a time of significant progress in the outer world and, for the most part, this progress supports inner growth and healing. However, tensions between your strong desire for personal independence and freedom and your simultaneous urge to pursue your ambitions are likely. Avoiding taking on too many new endeavors or responsibilities is vital for keeping things in check.
Jupiter trine the North Node of the Moon in February and Saturn trine North Node in April. These aspects increase our willingness to grow, learn, improve, and develop, moving past our fears. We are ready to embrace new methods and attitudes, leaving behind those no longer serving our growth. Our conscience is well-developed. We’re more inclined than usual to believe in the power of the group and of words to convey our message.
It’s a fine time for publishing, community involvement, teaching, guiding, and learning. Harmonizing through shared ideas and ideals can figure very strongly at this time.
For Taurus, you’re recognizing your need to get on top of your income, security, and personal possessions, and as you do, your attention to your career and responsibilities improves. You’re more able to focus and prioritize as a result.
Saturn square Uranus from February to December. Our needs for freedom and spontaneity seem to clash with a need for structure and stability. Rules and limitations are hard to tolerate, but without some lines drawn, life feels too chaotic. Attempts to assert our individuality, freedom, and originality tend to undermine our feeling of groundedness and security. Yet, we are not satisfied when we conform. There may be sudden and unexpected twists that force us to do something different or free ourselves from old habits.
For Taurus, you can sometimes do battle with your personal needs for more freedom, spontaneity, and independence. Occasional clashes with authority are possible. When you try to express your originality or individuality, you could feel a bit off-center and ungrounded due to a simultaneous and strong pull to get yourself secure through career or ambitions. This is a time to free yourself from certain old habits but also to establish new and healthy habits or routines.
Fortunately, we have the following influence helping to soften some of the rough edges:
Saturn sextile Chiron from February to November. This transit helps us feel competent, effective, and secure. We have a strong sense of both tradition and innovation. We are also more able to express our unique qualities or to go our own way, without stirring up controversy if we act in a professional, respectful manner. There’s no need for show-boating with this aspect. With humility and realism, the chances of success increase.
For Taurus, past work can benefit your career or life path goals. You’re doing a lot of work on yourself and your relationship with your inner world, and this reflects back positively in your ability to manage your responsibilities and thrive or succeed in the outside world.
Changing your career path or locking things down can be in focus now, and it affects your sense of freedom and the expression of your personality. For some, becoming your own boss can be in focus.
Other influences and minor transits:
Sun conjunct Jupiter in Aquarius on the day of a Full Moon in Leo. This influence is in effect from January 26-28. It’s an opportunity period for your career, life path, direction, responsibilities, reputation, or status. Your home or family goals could prompt you to want to make improvements.
In the first two-and-a-half weeks of February, the sign of Aquarius is in powerful emphasis. A high number of points occupy the sign of Aquarius at this time, including the Moon on the 10-12. The New Moon on February 11th pulls all of this together. This brings an unusual amount of cosmic activity to your career and reputation sector. Activities, significant events, and opportunities can emerge related to your performance, ambitions, reputation, or career/business.
With so many influences in the sign of Aquarius, you have more power to direct your worldly ambitions, as well as more faith in your ability to perform, manage, and lead.
Venus is retrograde from December 19th. Venus is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn from December 19th, 2021, to January 29, 2022.
For all, love, finance, and pleasure matters are not straightforward during this period–it’s a time to review our attitudes, feelings, and satisfaction levels rather than forge ahead boldly into new love relationships or financial projects. It may be best to avoid any major decisions about love (and finances) during this cycle.
While Venus is retrograde for these six weeks, people are a little more cautious and tight-fisted when it comes to generosity with their heart and their money!
Because Venus is your sign/chart ruler, this is a time when others seem to misunderstand you, and/or find you hard to reach. More often than not, you turn to your past rather than look ahead to your future. Past actions come back to visit you, and for some, past lovers reappear, whether in the flesh or mind, to an unusual degree. Karmic circumstances are occurring now. It’s a good time to rethink matters, but try not to alienate others completely as you do.
Still, this cycle occurs in your sector of spirit, higher learning, and adventure, and you could be reviewing the pleasure factor or your satisfaction levels with your education, belief systems, or connection to spirit-lifting activities. There can be some backing up and changes of heart at this time.

2021: Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, Outlook, & General Trends
The horoscope on this page, Taurus Yearly, shows the trends and predictions for the year in more detail. Because outer planet transits are lengthy, there are variations in the timing of outer planet transits for each of the three decans of Taurus, and these are shown below the main, general forecast.
There are some repeat trends as well as new themes with you in 2021, dear Taurus. Every year, we see challenges and opportunities in different areas. It’s my hope that by understanding these areas of potential disruption and ease, you can make the most of these trends by seeking out the opportunities and managing the challenges.
Taurus people revel in the practical aspects of life and draw spiritual truths from this. Comfort and satisfaction are great themes in your life. Mental and emotional security are primary goals.
The following chart shows the outer planets and other points in relation to your sign, revealing whether they are harmonizing with or challenging Taurus:
Grey is neutral (no direct relationship, but can be picky, nagging),
Pink is challenging (the planet is in direct, challenging relationship to your sign),
and Green is easy and supportive (the planet or point is in a direct, harmonious relationship with your sign).
While Jupiter and Saturn are in challenging aspect to your sign, 2021 holds more harmonious energy for you, Taurus.

Overview: Harmony and Challenge of Outer Planets:
You have support coming from Neptune and Pluto again this year, dear Taurus. These long-term influences are on your side, and Tauruses are more imaginative and spiritual than usual but also driven and determined under these influences.
Taurus is a sign that is typically more interested in practical realities than intensive self-analysis, but these planetary influences suggest a greater interest in understanding the spiritual forces active in your life.
Chiron forms an awkward angle to your sign, and this can be a nagging background influence — from time to time, you feel the need to make adjustments, particularly in your private life.
You’re rarely comfortable making radical changes in your life, but now that Uranus is in your sign, you’re inclined to find it more important to rock the boat than keep the peace if you feel caged in, oppressed, or confined in certain areas of your life.
Pluto’s support of your sign highlights your strong willpower and your ability to make long-term plans, patiently working towards your goals. Pluto continues to assist you in opening your mind to new ideas and broadening your horizons. This is not always an easy task, but life experiences and higher education can be stronger and growing drives.
Tauruses naturally have an excellent ability to stick with things and follow through. This trait is most defined in years when Saturn supports you, but with Uranus in your sign and Saturn now in a challenging aspect to the Taurus sign, you’re not quite as structured. In fact, you can be doing some experimentation. Stop-and-go energy is with you in 2021. You’re doing some road tests, and there can be some bumps in the road.
You have the patience to nurture something into being, and this can relate to a project, business, garden, or relationship. In 2021, you may have to remind yourself of these talents.
This is a powerful year for embracing your ambitions, taking on responsibilities, and performing. Go big in these areas, but know your limits!
The modern ruler of your career sector, Uranus, is in your sign, and changes are very much on the horizon regarding career, reputation, and responsibilities. Consider new beginnings. This may, for some of you, point to a new field or job, but for many, it can be a time for reinventing yourself in your career.
