Career, Work and Public Image for Taurus
Being essentially down-to-earth people, simple and uncomplicated, Taurus tends to look up to those who are original, unconventional and inventive. Taurus people like their bosses to be creative and original – since they themselves are content to perfect their superiors’ brainwaves. They admire people who have a wider social or political consciousness and they feel that someday (when they have all the comfort and security they need) they too would like to be involved in these big issues.
In business affairs Taurus can be very shrewd – and that makes them valuable to their employers. They are never lazy; they enjoy working and getting good results. Taurus does not like taking unnecessary risks and they do well in positions of authority, which makes them good managers and supervisors. Their managerial skills are reinforced by their natural talents for organization and handling details, their patience and thoroughness. As mentioned, through their connection with the earth, Taurus people also do well in farming and agriculture.
In general a Taurus will choose money and earning power over public esteem and prestige. A position that pays more – though it has less prestige – is preferred to a position with a lot of prestige but lower earnings. Many other signs do not feel this way, but a Taurus does, especially if there is nothing in his or her personal birth chart that modifies this. Taurus will pursue glory and prestige only if it can be shown that these things have a direct and immediate impact on their wallet.
Taurus Career Horoscope 2014 - Taurus Work Trends 2014
Mars Retrogrades March 1 to May 20—Expect Delays
I don't feel you will be short of things to do on the job in 2014. Mars will be spending an unusually long time in your workaday sector (solar sixth house), so you will be very busy with projects. If you are self-employed and hope to pick up lucrative clients for your business, you can do that quite easily in the first half of the year, and you will not likely run out of assignments. When one job finishes, another will come up, and this will be the pace all the way to July.
Mars will be retrograde for a time within this phase, however, from March 1 to May 20, and that might prove to be a frustrating period for you. You will find projects that you are working on will proceed slowly. If you make a major presentation to a group of clients and are awaiting word back during this phase, it may take an inordinately long time to get final approvals. In fact, that green light might not come until mid-May.
Everyone, of every sign, will be feeling this slowdown, as Mars is the booster rocket providing the energy and drive to all major endeavors. When Mars retrogrades we feel like we are walking through glue.
Uranus, the ruler of your house of fame and honors, will be moving in fast, direct speed from January 1, 2014 to July 22, 2014. Then, Uranus will retrograde until December 22, 2014, so career progress will move at a noticeably slower pace. You can still see gains, but it will take you longer, and you will have to work harder to see them. It is typical for Uranus to go out of phase for five months at a time (it does every year), so use that time to tweak your strategy and assess your progress so far this year. Uranus is an outer planet, and would not affect you like a smaller, more "personal" planet like Venus, Mercury, or Mars would do when retrograde.
