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.
