Of course, that only goes for Taurus in general. Your complete personal horoscope chart may see a lot of action also in 2016, because there the whole Zodiac and all the planets matter.
Minor PlanetsSince no major planet enters Taurus in 2016, we have to look at what the minor planets do. They are the ones passing through each Zodiac sign with some frequency.
The sun, Mercury and Venus do it annually. Mars does it every year and a half. There is also the moon speeding through the Zodiac every month.
The faster a planet's orbit is, the less significant is its influence – unless joining with other planets in conjunctions or other particular astrological constellations.
If any one of them happens to be in Taurus at the very beginning of the year, it has some significance for the whole year. So was the moon in the 2015 New Year horoscope. None of that in 2016, though.
Some Fun in the SpringNot until the 6th of April does a planet of any kind enter Taurus. It is Mercury, which usually enters the sign in the spring, since it is a close companion to the sun.
Mercury's entrance causes some intellectual stimuli for Taurus. Nothing fancy, but still brightening the days a bit.
Taurus can expect more conversations and contact with friends and other people than usual, while Mercury stays in the sign. That's until mid-June. It may also bring some small success in matters of the mind.
Next to enter is the sun on April 19, but its role in events to unfold is passive on its own. There is not much to expect from the sun's month-long visit to the sign – except that it will mark each Taurus birthday as it progresses.
Venus, also a companion to the sun though not that close, enters Taurus on the last day of April. It leaves Taurus already on the 24th of May.
While it is in the sign, it brings creativity and ease. Things go smoother than usual, and life tends to be rather pleasant. It's a pity that it doesn't last very long.
Benefits from the Achievements of OthersNo other planet enters Taurus in 2016. It's not much, but what can you do. Let's hope your personal horoscope has a lot more to offer.
There is much more going on in the other two earth signs, Virgo and Capricorn, which are linked to Taurus by trine aspects (120°). The trine creates harmony between the involved parties, a sense of moving in the same direction.
So, although nothing much happens to Taurus, it is possible to gain advantages from what Virgo and Capricorn go through and accomplish.
And Taurus has no trouble sitting back and enjoying the fruits picked by others, if that happens to be the case.
