2022: Taurus Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
Note: The summary of the year resides here; details of the year are below.
It’s now the time to feel considerably more confident about the future, dear Taurus. You’re gaining confidence in your ability to set plans in motion that will allow you to accomplish some of your most cherished hopes and dreams.
In 2022, you are planting seeds, so to speak, aiming to get started on projects that will reap the rewards in the future. With more contact with others, whether it’s about an expanded real-life group of connections or online, you are sure to come up with new ideas and gain inspiration. Others can point you in new directions.
There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically. A new communications project can excite you and bring you into contact with interesting, helpful people. A stronger awareness of others, a bigger emphasis on networking and enjoying friendships, and a hard look at the work you do are in store for you in 2022. It’s possible you’re exploring different relationship arrangements. You’re also reaping the many benefits from and increased respect for what you do. Your business income improves, and you now focus on going after your fondest hopes and wishes, not only material and career goals.
You’re finding more than the usual enjoyment from group associations, associates, networking, or friendships. However, from May to October, you’re beginning to find special value in some level of retreat. It’s a good time to explore and discover a stronger sense of self-reliance as well as connect with your intuition. It’s a brilliant time for work done behind the scenes or finishing up a major project.
Key Events in 2022 for Taurus:
Outer Planet Transits:
Pluto trine True North Node in February. This transit intensifies our passion to make a difference, a change, or connection. We can feel strongly connected to people or groups at this time.
It’s a powerful period for you, Taurus, to discover your passions for ideas, causes, studies, or a belief system. Helping or guiding others can figure strongly. Promotion is likely, and it can be most powerful. Transformative studies are possible. The people you meet play a big part in your future.
Jupiter sextile Uranus and semi-square Pluto in February. With these aspects, changes and innovations are exciting. We’re open to new energies, approaches, and attitudes. Fortunate events occur as a direct result of our willingness to entertain the unusual and to think outside of the box. We’re less tolerant of repetition and routine, and we’re resistant to obligations or limits to our self-expression. Good luck or money can happen unexpectedly, appearing in the nick of time.
For you, Taurus, friendships can form quickly or unexpectedly, and you’re turning over a new leaf on a social level. It’s also a time of brave new ideas and exciting prospects. For some, an online business is in positive focus.
Jupiter conjunct Neptune in April. With this fabulous alignment, idealistic and humanitarian goals or impulses surface. Themes now are making connections with others of a different background, a spirit of altruism and generosity, widening our minds through unusual or different experiences, expanded faith, and a feeling that anything is possible if we believe in it. We more easily make personal sacrifices for what we believe to be the better good.
Everyday, ordinary life doesn’t satisfy, as we hunger for a more idealistic life. This can certainly lead to disappointment or strong feelings of discontent and restlessness. We may need a reality check in order to keep our expectations realistic. However, it’s a period of greater compassion–when our guiding principle is to trust in people or the universe.
For Taurus, friendships can feel magical or confusing, and very pleasurable. Piscean or Sagittarius friends can figure strongly. More faith in the universe is possible through your connections.
Jupiter sextile Pluto in early May. We’re discovering our ambitions and motivations, and it’s an enjoyable, productive experience. It’s a time when we want to improve, grow, and bring something to the next level. As we connect with our hidden talents or desires, we begin to embrace new directions or pursuits.
Uranus conjunct True North Node in July. With this transit, we attract people or lessons into our lives that encourage us to detach from traditions or conventions that are keeping us from growing. It’s a good time to make pivotal friendships or group connections. We’re learning to be more self-sufficient while concerning ourselves with bettering the world around us.
Other influences and minor transits:
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.
The Sun aligns with Jupiter in Pisces and Venus aligns with Mars in Aquarius on March 5-7. It’s a wildly creative and optimistic time. We’re generous with our time and energy, and we can be quite reactive and affectionate, perhaps bolder than usual as we wish to do something special.
This period can bring an opportunity period for your social life or happiness projects/goals. Your personal magnetism or relationships can be on display in some manner, and creativity on business or promotional levels is in focus.
Mars is retrograde from October 30, 2022, to January 12, 2023, in the sign of Gemini (pre-retrograde shadow begins September 3). We can feel stuck on past relationships or situations, finding it difficult to move ahead.
Slowdowns, reparations, and reconsiderations are significant with money, personal possessions or belongings, or income. On a psychological plane, this can be about matters of respect and worth. The desire for more financial independence is building. However, you can feel hampered or restricted in these areas temporarily.

2022: 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 in addition to new themes with you in 2022, 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. With Uranus again in Taurus and the North Node in the sign most of the year 2022, the definitions of security are morphing and developing.
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).
The year 2022 holds mostly harmonious energy for you, Taurus. Even so, Uranus and the North Node in your sign, while harmonious, can be pressuring at times. And, the major outer-planet challenge is coming from Saturn, the task-master, and it’s on the heavy side. As such, you’ll find that the year challenges you to shape up in important areas, particularly related to responsibilities, career, or reputation.
Expansion, Growth, Hope, Improvement, Spirit
Saturn=Restriction, Structure, Simplicity, Realism
Uranus=Innovation, Excitement, Unrest, Rebellion, Change
Neptune=Inspiration, Spirit, Confusion, Dissolution, Enlightenment
Pluto=Upheaval, Transformation, Rebirth, Unearthing, Excavation, Power
Chiron=Vulnerability, Wisdom, Healing, Wholeness, Non-conformity
North Node=Life Lesson, Growth, Improvement, Challenge

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 continued 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 with Uranus 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 in a challenging aspect to the Taurus sign again in 2022, you’re not quite as structured. In fact, you can be doing some experimentation. Stop-and-go energy is with you. 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 2022, you may have to remind yourself of these talents since impatience can creep up unexpectedly.
This is a powerful year for friendships and your inner world. 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 possible 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.
