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.
