Work and Career
Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year in your career sector, the solar spotlight will always be on your career and professional situation, matters and options as you move into each new professional year. However, it is not until the Sun leaves on 20th January that it will become clear that this is no ordinary start to the year, with things just heating up at the point when they are usually going off the boil. While it is not unusual to start the year with Venus in your career sector it is unusual for her to be in retrograde motion. Even Mercury who will leave your career sector on 2nd January will retrograde back in on 26th January. For most of January, it may appear that the brakes are on, giving a false impression that this will be a low energy year.
Instead, this is more a case of pushing the pause button as you wait for Mars’ return on 25th January. This is a day before Mercury retrogrades back in and four days before Venus turns direct on 29th January. With Mercury turning direct on 4th February, not leaving until 15th February and both Venus and Mars here until 6th March, it is towards the end of January and into February that things will really come alive. It is the Sun’s departure in January that is the point where Pluto, here from 2008 to 2024 takes over and moves things into maintenance mode but that won’t happen until March this year and not before giving this professional year a massive push.
Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector on 14th July, career matters will continue to tick over until Mercury returns on 7th December, Venus on 10th December and the Sun on 22nd December. This time Mars won’t be returning, with his time here from 25th January to 6th March more focused on getting this professional year up to speed than on bringing it home. It is Pluto that will keep the engines running in between. Unlike your career sector, there is no continuous planetary activity in your work sector and Mars won’t visit this year either. As he did in your career sector, Mercury will visit your work sector twice, first from 4th August to 26th August and again from 24th September to 11th August. The Sun will put the solar spotlight on work and job matters from 23rd August to 23rd September and Venus will work to attract opportunities from 5th September to 29th September.
