There is a concerted effort, from around the solar system to keep your work hat off in the early weeks of the month, something even the professional gods are encouraging. The Sun, who will return to your work sector on 20th January to get this new professional year off the ground, will begin the year in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and he is putting his foot down. Even Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos is demanding time out to play. 2018 was a busy year for you, with a very real need to not only recharge your batteries, but reclaim a balance between work and play. For the first time in 12 years, you begin the year with lucky Jupiter in your home and family sector and as he is here until the final weeks of the year, this is the start of an auspicious year for things close to home. Jupiter returned in November, just over 10 months after Saturn’s three year visit ended. Where there were challenges in the past you now get to enjoy the benefits. Venus’ return to your home and family sector on 8th January will bring the planets of love and luck together here for the rest of the month. Home is not just where your heart will be, but some real opportunities for growth as well. Luck is smiling on home, family and/or property matters this month and will continue to all year. Meanwhile, this is also a year where you are able to take your financial power back, even if this wasn’t on your radar at the end of last year. This literally changes on New Year’s Day, with Mars returning to your financial sector to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit in the early hours of the month.
