Monthly Career Horoscopes - January 2019
Moving into the New Year with your professional hat on has always been a reality for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of January in your career sector. Yet while it might be the norm to have the solar spotlight on your career and professional situation, matters and options at this time of year and until the Sun leaves on 20th January, but what this highlights is anything but. You have moved into the New Year with the Sun, Pluto, Saturn and the South Node in your career sector, the first time they have all been together here in our lifetime. To say that 2019 is destined to be a huge professional year is an understatement, yet in reality this is a practice run for 2020, which is destined to be a massive step up for this year, which is already a massive step up for previous years. The real implications of the South Node's return in November will be felt when this turns an ordinary New Moon on 6th January into an extraordinary solar eclipse. This brings the element of fate into play, as well as creating the potential for major new beginnings. A solar eclipse on its own can launch things forward, but it comes when there is a juggernaut of forces, just waiting for the right trigger. The Moon is in your career sector from 5th January to 7th January and with Mercury returning on 5th January as well, there will be a chance to get your head in the game, just as your professional instincts and imagination kick in. Regardless of when you are due to head back to work after the holiday period, this professional year gains some serious momentum from 6th January. Yet while the Sun will leave on 20th January and Mercury on 24th January, with Venus not returning until early next month, the best is still to come.
The professional year starts off on a quiet note and that is exactly what you need. It was only in early November that the South Node wrapped up an 18 month visit to your career sector, with Mars having wrapped up a nearly six month visit just days later. With Venus having only just left your work sector in early December, 2018 was an extremely busy year. Mars returned in May 2018 for what should have been a six week visit to your career sector, while Venus returned to your work sector in early August, for what should have been a 24 day visit. Instead, Mars didn't leave until November and Venus until early December, giving you little if any chance to ease back. The fact that you move into January with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses is a valuable chance to catch your breath and get your bearings. With so many planetary activity on both fronts last year, there is also still an enormous amount of momentum still playing out. With the Sun returning to your career sector on 20th January and Mercury on 24th January, this is when a whole new chapter will open up. Until then, ease into this new professional year as slowly as possible, with the Moon's return to your career sector from 7th January to 10th January the first time you will need to really start paying attention. This is both the Moon's first visit for the year and last before the Sun returns. With your professional instincts and imagination fuelled, the Moon will deliver the valuable clues, hunches and insights that can help you tie up loose ends from last year and line up for what lies ahead. You will get an intuitive read on work and job matters as the Moon moves through your work sector from 25th January to 27th January.
The professional gods are creating a massively busy, hectic and dramatic start to this new professional year, but fortunately the pace will drop back. In reality, this is less a manic start to this new professional year and more a case of your 2018 professional year spilling into the early days of 2019. For the last time in our lifetime, you begin the year with Mars and Neptune, the planets of dreams and passion in your career sector. While Mars will leave on New Year's Day, having spent the last six weeks of 2018 fuelling your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit, this gives this new professional year a massive head start. You also begin the year with the Moon, Ceres and Venus in your work sector, with your heart in the game and an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. Yet with Mars leaving your career sector on New Year's Day, the Moon leaving your work sector the next day and Venus a week later, after a dramatic start to the year, the professional gods will pull back. However, like the thrust needed to launch a rocket into space, once launched the real journey continues. Ceres will stay on in your work sector until 26th January, finally bringing 15 months of continuous planetary activity to a close, including the 13 months lucky Jupiter spent here. With Mars gone from your career sector, Neptune and Chiron will keep the momentum going, but ahead of the Sun's return next month will want to pull back. The Moon's return to your career sector from 10th January to 12th January will give you a chance to regroup and also adjust to a less manic pace. By the time the Moon returns to your work sector from 27th January to 30th January, it will be empty, with a chance to finally tie up loose ends.
Whatever impressions you had of what kind of professional year to expect in the closing days and hours of 2018, the professional gods are set to surprise you. Even the early hours of 2019 might reveal that nothing has changed. Yet in saying that, for the first time in 12 years you have moved into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector and for the last time for another eight decades, with Uranus in your career sector. With Mercury in your work sector until 5th January, you even begin the year with your head in the game. However, with Jupiter here until December and Uranus and Eris both in retrograde motion in your career sector, all the signs point to a slow start to this new professional year. Yet everything will change within hours of moving into 2019 and it is all thanks to Mars' return to your career sector on New Year's Day. Returning six days before Uranus is due to turn direct on 7th January and 10 days before Eris is due to turn direct on 11th January, Mars is about to change everything. Career matters are at a near standstill in the early hours of the month, but Mars' return will quickly bring things up to speed. With Mars not leaving until 15th February, the whole of January is set to be busy. Venus' return on 8th January will add to the excitement, with job and career matters both moving into an exciting new phase. However, the game changer will be a total lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January. This is set to electrify an already staggering amount of untapped potential across the income, work and career fronts. Across all three fronts, this has been potential that has been building for years. As far back as Uranus' return to your career sector in 2010, Saturn's to your work sector in 2014 and the North Node's to your income sector in 2017.
Regardless of what else has or still is developing professionally, you will always begin the year with the focus on work and job matters. That is because the Sun always has and always will spend the first three weeks of January in your work sector, shining the solar spotlight onto your work situation and job matters. Yet while the Sun provides the light, it is what that light reveals that makes each new professional year a different story and this year the story is a whole library of options. The year begins with not only the Sun in your work sector but Saturn, Pluto and the North Node. Saturn has just completed his first full year in your work sector and has now moved into his last full year. You now know what you are working with and to a degree, this year will be a continuation of that. The wildcard is the South Node, who returned in November to give you access to the past and untapped potential. A sleeper until now, it is the South Node's presence that will turn an ordinary New Moon on 6th January into an extraordinary New Moon. Mercury's return on 5th January will ensure you have your head in the game, as a formidable line up of forces gather to take advantage of the new beginnings and momentum this will create on the job front. Yet while the Sun will leave on 20th January and Mercury on 24th January, the best is still to come. Held back by a retrograde phase, Venus won't return until early next month. However, with Mars returning to your career sector next month, the timing couldn't be better. January is the month when everything starts to move, but next month will mark the start of a major coming together of job and career forces that will continue all year.
As much as possible, ease slowly back into things this year, for this is what the professional gods are doing. Last year was busy, so busy that chances are, it was only when you finally got to step back over the holiday period that you realised how exhausted you were. Hopefully, you have listened to your body and taken time out. Even the Moon's return to your work sector from 7th January to 10th January will bring a message to hold back. This is partly because you do need to recharge your batteries, but also because there is a huge amount that is still playing out. The reason why last year was so busy can be summed up in one word, Mars. Mars returned to your work sector in May, for what should have been a six week visit. Mars only returns every other year and these are always the busiest weeks in a two year period. However, Mars didn't leave until November, leaving exactly six months after arriving. This was a massive amount of time to remain in Mars' manic environment, something that chances are, became your 'normal'. It was only until Mars finally left and you got to take time out over the holiday period, that you were able to appreciate the toll this has taken. Yet a slow start to the year is not just a chance to recharge your batteries, because after six months Mars invested a huge amount that is still running its course. With the Sun returning on 20th January to begin a new chapter and Mercury on 24th January to help crank things up again, you need a firebreak. It could be that you are literally still catching up from work you weren't able to finish in 2018, due to the sheer volume or that things started, are still running their course and need to play out. Either way, there is a need to be ready to embrace the new opportunities this year holds when the Sun returns on 20th January.
There is a good chance that even if you got to take time out over the holiday period, the busy pace of the final six weeks of last year didn't abate. The final weeks of any professional year are usually slow and in fact slower than normal for you. You have had Chiron in your work sector since 2010 and Neptune since 2012, but by December they are either in their final weeks in retrograde or early weeks in direct motion. Either way, because a planet must come to a standstill in order to turn direct or retrograde, both spend December at a standstill. As the Sun doesn't return to your work sector until February, January is usually when things start to move, but still at a slow pace. Yet while Neptune did turn direct in late November and Chiron in December, this did nothing to slow things down. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos spent the last six weeks of 2018 in your work sector and this meant there was no slowing down. Mars will leave on New Year's Day, allowing you to begin the year with your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit fuelled and a huge amount of momentum from the get go. However, there will also finally be a chance to pull back. For the first time in 17 years, you begin the year with the North Node in your career sector and this will continue to provide a sense of professional direction and to attract huge opportunities for the whole of 2019. It was a Full Moon just before Christmas that has created enough momentum to drive the early months of 2019. Along with the momentum Mars has created on the job front, January is a month when you can almost sit back and ride the waves already created.
If you had sat down, in the final hours of 2018 and wrote down what kind of start to this new professional year to expect, by the end of the first day you would have to screw that up and think again. This is one year when first impressions are set to be shattered within hours, with the whole dynamics of not just this new professional year, but your professional game itself set to change dramatically. You begin the year with no planetary activity in your career sector and with Uranus and Eris both in retrograde motion in your work sector. With Uranus turning direct on 7th January and Eris on 11th January, both are at a near standstill. Any planet has to come to a standstill in order to turn direct or retrograde, so work and job matters are not only slow, they are literally at a standstill and everything points to it staying that way. With the Sun not returning to your work sector until March each year, all signs point to a slow start to the year. Except that is not your reality. Everything changes with Mars' return to your work sector on New Year's Day. As well as firing up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit, Mars will turn what should be the slowest month of 2019 into the start of the busiest six weeks since 2016. With Uranus leaving in early March and not due to return for another eight decades, Mars will waste no time in making his final months count. Venus' return to your income sector on 8th January and a total lunar eclipse in your career sector on 21st January will contribute to what is destined to an explosion of potential across the income, work and career fronts. On all three fronts, this is a trigger for developments building behind the scenes for years now.
Things might get off to a slow start this year, but then this is the norm for you or at least it has been. January is not an active point of any year on the job or career fronts for you, but that is about to change in a big way. Uranus spent six months in your work sector last year, in what was a chance to get a feel for what was possible and also to set some things in motion. Uranus retrograded back out in early November, but will return in early March, staying here until 2026. By this time next year, Uranus will be a fixed feature. The year begins with Juno in her early days in retrograde motion in your work sector. While Juno is a tiny player and does not have the ability or the desire to create a busy start to the year, she is keeping the wheels turning. With Mars returning next month and Uranus just weeks later, once the big boys arrive to really drive work and job matters forward, you will be ready. Juno is the queen of commitment and she was here at the same time as Uranus last year, so is helping you remain committed to things you began then. This makes it important to move into the New Year having something to commit to on the job front, even if it is just a belief, principal or idea. The less you can take action the better, with Mars returning next month to kick things off. The Moon's return to your work sector from 15th January to 17th January will be a chance to touch base, giving you your first intuitive read on work and job matters for 2019. Likewise, you will have a chance to do the same on the career front, when the Moon moves through your career sector from 23rd January to 25th January.
After Venus left your career sector in early December, there has been no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses and it remains the same this month. After a Full Moon in your work sector in late November and Venus wrapped up four months of planetary activity on the career front just days later, more than enough momentum has been created on both fronts. January is a month where there is no call from the professional gods to reinvent the wheel, you are able to get your bearings and play things on your terms. While the Sun doesn't return to your work sector until May each year, with Mars returning in late March, things will kick off earlier this year and will stay busy throughout the middle and into the later months of 2019. In other words, make the most of a relatively quiet start to your professional year, using this as a chance to get your bearings, to let things play out and with no planets in either of your two professional houses, to play things the way that you want to. On both the job and career fronts, the ball is in your court, with plenty of momentum to tap into and use as you choose. This makes the Moon's visits to your two professional houses a lot more important this month. The Moon will move through your work sector from 17th January to 19th January. This first visit for the year is a valuable chance to get an intuitive read on work and job matters and to get your bearings. Likewise, the Moon's return to your career sector from 25th January to 27th January will be your first chance to get your professional bearings for the year. This will also ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled during the Sun and Mercury's early days in your income sector.
You begin the new professional year with the perfect conditions. There is enough momentum and support across the income, work and career fronts to get this new professional year off to a good start, but not in a way that is demanding or frantic. You begin the year with the Moon, Venus and Ceres in your career sector. This will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go, you know what you want and how to steer a massive amount of momentum. Venus had returned to your career sector in early September, for what should have been a 24 day visit. Instead, returning during lucky Jupiter's final months, Venus slowed down, turned retrograde and refused to leave. To still have Venus here as you move into the New Year means you still have access to all the momentum and untapped potential created during Jupiter's 13 month visit. The Moon will leave on 2nd January, Venus six days later and Ceres on 26th January, finally bringing 15 months of continuous planetary activity to a close. The Moon's return from 27th January to 30th January couldn't come with better timing, with a chance to immediately tie up loose ends. You also begin the month with the North Node in your work sector and after a powerful Full Moon there just before Christmas, this is a force that will keep work and job matters on track all year. This is a lucky and auspicious force, setting the scene for a good year for work and job matters. The Moon will move through your work sector from 19th January to 21st January. Coming full circle from last month's Full Moon, this could trigger some unexpected developments. Meanwhile, while Mars will leave your income sector on New Year's Day, he leaves behind the potential for a lucrative start to 2019.
This year begins with a lot of promise, but unlike other years where things haven't lived up to that promise, this month is set to exceed that promise and then some. All that promise comes from the fact that, for the first time in 12 years you move into a new professional year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector. Not due to leave until December, this is the start of what has the promise to be an expansive, opportune and auspicious professional year. Since Jupiter's return in November, the Sun has been and gone, while Mercury has refused to leave. Mercury will leave on 5th January, leaving Jupiter on his own for the first time since arriving. This allows you to begin the year with your head in the game from the get go. Yet Mercury's departure should mark the point where Jupiter should be on his own until later in the year and it should then become more about the journey. Instead, held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus finally returns on 8th January, teaming up with Jupiter to create some of the most auspicious weeks of the planet of luck and expansion's time here. As the planet of money, Venus returns with the ability to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. On its own, this would be enough to make this a stunning professional month. Instead, with Mars returning to your income sector on New Year's Day and a total lunar eclipse in your work sector on 21st January, this will see an explosion of potential and opportunities across the income, work and career fronts. What makes this so potentially game changing, is that together this is tapping into and triggering potential across all three fronts that has literally been building for years. If you have been waiting for your ship to come home, then this is the month you've been waiting for.
