Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of each year in your career sector, the solar spotlight is always on your career and professional situation, matters and options as you move into the new professional year and this year is no exception. However, the Sun is not on his own and the other planets here, with their different agendas and timeframes add to complicity and different layers that combine to get the year off to a good start. By far the most urgent of those planets is Venus, with the planet of money, desire and attraction not only leaving on 3rd January but then not returning again until 2024.
This makes it important to listen to your heart from the start, as Venus works to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. On the opposite side of the scale is Mercury, who returned just after Venus last month for what is normally a 14 to 15 day chance to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. Instead, a retrograde turn late last month will not only keep him here for the rest of the month but into the first two weeks of February as well. With Mercury not turning direct until 19th January, this gives you a chance to hold back, something that you will ultimately benefit from.
It is just a day later that the Sun will leave, leaving Mercury at a standstill in his first full day in retrograde motion but also alone with Pluto and this is when those weeks spent holding back will be an asset. This has given you time back at the drawing board but also to hold back so that he can give Pluto his full attention and that could be a game changer. For after 14 years the planet of change and revolution is leaving your career sector in March, with a chance to use Mercury's intellectually savvy edge and the insight gained by holding back to start making constructive and planned changes, putting you in the driver's seat. Meanwhile, the Moon will give you more insight into career matters from 20th January to 22nd January and into work and job matters from 11th January to 13th January.
