For the third year in a row you’re moving into the New Year with Saturn in your career sector yet that’s where the similarities end. A lot of water has passed under the bridge since this demanding and pragmatic planet returned to your career sector in October 2010, raising the bar and asking more from you than you thought possible to deliver on. But after the ups and downs, the challenges and the breakthroughs you’ve reached a place where you can rest on your laurels, ahead of Saturn’s retrograde turn next month, which will give you a chance to retrace your steps. In the meantime, it’s support from Venus and Neptune in your income sector and from the Moon during his visit to your work sector between Friday and Sunday that reveals how many options you have.
Your 2012 professional year is getting off to a dream start with Jupiter in your career sector and Mars in your career sector. With Jupiter in your work sector until June and Mars in your career sector until July you haven’t begun to tap into your full potential, but with support from a planetary line up in your income sector you’re able to move into the New Year with confidence and a real sense that it’s ‘game on’. Jupiter only turned direct last Monday so is slowly moving up to speed, while Mars is slowing down ahead of his retrograde turn in a few weeks time. On both fronts slow and steady will win the race, with a chance for a slow and measured start to your new professional year. Take some time off if you can, ahead of what is destined to be a busy year.
Mercury, planet of communication and smart thinking returned to your career sector on the 3rd November for what is normally a 15 to 17 day visit aimed at giving you the intellectual savvy required to play your A game, work smarter and to make informed choices, decisions and plans. Yet when Tuesday comes around, 2 months to the day since Mercury first arrived in your career sector, you’ll still find him there, though not for long. Due to leave your career sector on Sunday Mercury is giving you one last week, coincidentally the first week of your new professional year and the week which sets the scene for the rest of the year, to work with him to develop a game plan. Whether back at work or on holiday keep your thinking cap on and finalize your professional blueprints for the coming year.
You’re moving into your new professional year with no planetary activity in either of your professional houses, giving you a chance to take your professional hat off, for now anyway. This gives you a chance to get your bearings, take off over the holidays and even if you’re back at work or working through, to take things at your own speed, in your own way and time. However, with a Full Moon in your work sector next Monday that won’t be the case next week, with a need to make the most of this relatively quiet week. The Moon will return to your work sector on Sunday ahead of next Monday’s Full Moon, giving you a chance to listen to your instincts, hunches and cues before things come to a head and your new professional year really hits the ground and gets the push start it needs.
Moving into the New Year with the Sun in your career sector is a matter of course for you and having Pluto here as well has been your norm since 2008, so it’s very natural that your focus will be on your career goals and objectives for the coming year. However, it’s been a long time since you’ve been so well supported, not only on the professional front but on the financial front as well. It’s support from Jupiter in your income sector and Mars in your work sector that is a game changer, especially as this is support that will remain strong until mid year, expending the professional momentum well beyond the normal range. Mercury’s return to your career sector on Sunday will give you an additional edge, allowing you to think on your feet and play your A game, finding your groove.
Whether you’re working through the holiday period or on holiday this week you’re likely to have your professional hat on, but in a way that allows you to have the best of both worlds. With Venus and Neptune not only in your career sector, evoking your professional desires and big bold dreams for the future but support from Saturn in your work sector, guaranteeing the focus and determination to see things through, this is more about developing a professional blueprint for the coming year. This can be done at work or on holiday, with a need to let your imagination and your professional desires and dreams run wild. The only danger you’re likely to face is a lack of faith, with a need to believe in what’s possible, even if you have to fake it till you make it.
Moving into the New Year with Venus and Neptune in your career sector and Saturn in your work sector creates a unique combination of forces that provide the perfect ingredients for success. It’s Venus’ professional desires and Neptune’s dreams and fantasies that give you a sense of what’s possible, while Saturn’s hard grunt and determination on the work front ensures that if you can see it, you can find the blood, sweat and tears to make it happen. Yet it’s the alliance between these 3 planets that allows you to move into the first week of 2012 with confidence, but with Venus leaving your career sector at the end of next week it’s your heart, your professional desires and a sense of what’s possible that needs to lead the way forward. This is not a year for settling, but for aiming high.
Moving into the New Year with the Moon and Uranus in your career sector and Mercury, planet of communication and smart thinking in your work sector has given you a unique advantage, one that will allow you to find your stride and keep it, long after the conditions themselves have moved on. The Moon will remain in your career sector until Tuesday, ensuring that you move into 2012 with your professional instincts sharp and on the ball. With Mercury leaving your work sector on Sunday, working smarter and thinking on your feet will get your new professional year off to a nimble start. Whether on holiday, back at work or working through, spend this week defining your professional game plan for the coming year, remembering to keep it flexible and your mind and options open.
You’re moving into your new professional year with a unique advantage and whether on holiday or back at work you’re able to get a jump that will put you ahead of the game. It was Jupiter’s direct turn in your career sector last Monday that triggered the start of not only a comeback and rebuilding phase, but a chance to start over, this time with luck and hindsight to draw on. With the Sun and Pluto opening up new options open on the work front, the Moon’s return to your career sector from Tuesday to Thursday will both sharpen your professional instincts and put your work and career objectives on the same page. Mercury’s return to your work sector on Sunday will give you the tools to work smarter and to play your A game, with your new professional year starting in earnest next week.
You’re not only moving into your new professional year with Venus and Neptune in your work sector, giving you a strong sense of what you want but with some big dreams taking shape, but with support from Saturn in your income sector. This is bringing a new sense of confidence on both the income and work fronts, bringing a sense that this might be your year after all. However, it’s the Moon’s position in your career sector from Friday to Sunday that as well as sharpening your professional instincts will provide some clues to even bigger opportunities ahead. As the Moon comes full circle from last month’s total lunar eclipse in your career sector expect some important clues that at the same time will put the past and the future into context, with the penny dropping on a number of things.
Enjoy the relatively slow start to your new professional year, for when things start to move you’ll be on a roll. While it’s next week that your professional year officially hits the ground, as far as the stars are concerned, by Sunday you should be getting your first inklings that things are about to move. It’s the Moon’s return to your career sector on Sunday, ahead of next Monday’s Full Moon that will both sharpen your professional instincts and provide some timely clues and hunches. This is your sign that things are about to move, with next Monday’s Full Moon really getting your professional year off the ground. But it’s Venus’ return to your work sector later next week that will put things on a permanent roll, with a need this week to step back and consider your options.
While Uranus, planet of surprise and synchronicity has been in your work sector on and off since May 2010 and continuously since March 2011, this is the first year since 1935 that he’s been here as you moved into a new professional year, able to help you get off to the most authentic start possible. Here until 2019 Uranus is on a long term mission to open up your options and to bring unexpected opportunities from out of left field, which means taking your hands off the wheel while being ready for when and where opportunity might strike. It’s was the Moon’s return to your work sector on New Year’s Eve and his position here until Tuesday that is also making sure that you’re moving into the New Year with your finger on the pulse and your ear to the ground. Trust your instincts and hunches.
