The year always begins on a busy note for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of January in your work sector. With a solar eclipse here on 6th January the tip of a very large iceberg, with some seriously powerful and busy planets in play on the job front, there is every reason to assume that life will soon become all work and no play. Yet while Jupiter will not want to get in the way of any real opportunities and developments on the job front, from his position in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, the planet of luck and expansion is acting as the fun police. Jupiter is not only the planet of luck, but the largest planet in the solar system and he can definitely pull rank. Jupiter is here until December and with Saturn spending the whole year in your work sector, they will work together to maintain a balance between work and play all year. With major developments continuing on the job front and new developments on the career front next month, this is something that needs to be taken seriously. Venus, the planet of love’s return to join Jupiter in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 8th January, will make this relatively easy. So too will Mars’ return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on New Year’s Day. It is Mars’ return to your career sector next month that will kick off what will become a major period of expansion over the coming months, so will eagerly work with Jupiter and Venus to ensure life doesn’t become all work and no play. Mars returns on a mission to fuel a passion for adventure and a hunger for life’s richer experiences. Meanwhile, a total lunar eclipse in Leo on 21st January could trigger some exciting and unexpected developments.
