In January 2017, Taurus will probably be confronted with new people and new strategic decisions in the domain of work. This question will increasingly concern direct competitors, but not necessarily those who have their own businesses. Naturally, for Taureans who work for themselves the responsibilities will be several times greater, but their efficiency for positive development vectors will also prove to be greater. Those who do not work for themselves will lose the necessity to take drastic measures, but certain decisions will still fall to them, and here it will be necessary to do some hard thinking. On no account should you act contrary to the direction indicated by your immediate superiors. Even if you fundamentally disagree with their position, you must first attempt to dissuade those who determine your work plan. If this is possible (and this is possible, you just need pressure and a little bit of patience!), you will be able to choose independently the paths along which your current project (or projects) will advance. Under no circumstances should you stop halfway! Due to the influence of adversely configured celestial objects, at an unjustified stop you risk losing sight of all landmarks. If you "brake", you may never catch up with those who go ahead.
On the romantic front for Taureans in January 2017, it is unlikely that any particularly important developments will await, but this does not mean that it is logical to leave everything to take its own course, without considering possible consequences. There will be consequences in any case, but the type of consequences these will be depends on your personal decisions, of course. Do your best to engage when those near you are not in the easiest situation. The mere fact of this situation arising will probably irritate you. You will say, "It's your own fault", and you will be absolutely right, but this does not change the fact that the person needs help. If, however, you constantly poke at their mistakes, which they are already perfectly aware of, nothing good will be achieved, believe me. There is also no point in deviating from the direction assigned to you by those you have the strongest and most sincere feelings for. Even if originally the idea seems quite debatable, at least don't reject it out of hand. Think. Deal with the situation, and then everything will work out well, not only for you, but also for those who follow in line with you, so to speak, although sometimes the negative influence of Saturn may still come back and haunt you. Control outbreaks of baseless exasperation, and don't under any circumstances provoke your loved ones, as the consequences could be fatal to your relationship.
