Business Yearly for Tuesday 01 January 2019

   Aries   Mar 21 - Apr 19
Any indecision or perceived lack of motivation at the end of last year is completely blown out of the water in the early days of this year, with your whole professional game catching its second wind in the early days of the New Year. In fact, this might kick in during the early hours, with career forces that limped to the end of your 2018 professional year, shooting out of the gate as you move into 2019. You can thank Mars’ return to Aries on New Year’s Day for that, firing up your passions and fighting spirit from the get go. It is a solar eclipse in your career sector on 6th January that will ride the wave of enthusiasm this will create. As well as creating an opportunity for an empowered start to this new professional year, this also creates the potential for new beginnings. If you toyed with the idea of a change in professional path, you were looking at starting a business, beginning a project or just changing things up on the career front a little, what was on the back burner will scream into life in the early days of the year. While the Sun will leave your career sector on 20th January and Mercury is only here until 24th January, Venus’ return on 4th February will continue the momentum. With Mars returning to your income sector on 14th February and a Full Moon on the job front on 20th February, what begins in the New Year as a fresh burst of enthusiasm, is likely to see things come together in February. With Pluto in your career sector until 2024, Saturn until December 2020 and Jupiter returning on the 3rd December, there is no danger of starting what you can’t finish. A second eclipse, this time a lunar eclipse on 17th July will be an important milestone for events that began in the first two months of the year. While work and job matters aren’t active all year, as career matters are, once things start to move on the job front they will have some structures to build on from. The most active and the busiest months of the year on the job front will run from 18th August to 4th October. This is when Mars will move through your work sector and with the Sun, Mercury and Venus all moving through within those six weeks, this will create a short, sharp, active and very busy time on the job front. Everything that happens on the career and job fronts this year happens against the backdrop of strong and enduring forces in play on the career front all year, but get their real boost in the first two months of the year. This will culminate with lucky Jupiter’s return to your career sector on 3rd December, kicking off your luckiest, most auspicious, expansive and powerful professional year in over a decade.
 
   Taurus   Apr 20 - May 20
You have been through some busy and potentially exhausting professional years, first on the job front and last year on the career front. This has planted a lot of seeds, created a lot of momentum and set things in motion that will continue to play out this year. However, for the first time in several years, you may begin this new professional year wanting nothing more than some time off. That isn’t surprising, because the professional gods have taken themselves off on holiday as well. The last planetary activity on the job front in 2018 only ran its course in early December, which is late in the year and on the career front just weeks earlier. You begin the year with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses, with a chance to get your bearings before things take off again. This rather civil start to the year is reflected in what is happening on both the job and career fronts this year. On both fronts there is enough happening to give you more than enough scope to accomplish what you want, but not so much that your professional game dominates your life. You have been there and done that. Job and career matters are also having turns, creating some exciting pockets throughout the year. You won’t need to put your professional hat on for the first time this year until the Sun returns to your career sector on 20th January. With Mercury returning four days later but both gone by 20th February, this is a short opportunity to explore your options and to get this professional year off to an authentic start. It is Venus’ return from 2nd March to 27th March that will create some exciting weeks on the career front, especially with Mars kicking off the most lucrative months of 2019 on 31st March. It is while Venus is here that you will have the first of two Full Moons in your work sector, on 21st March. A second Full Moon on 19th April will capture all that has been building on the income, work and career fronts by this point. After that there is a chance to pull back and let things play out, with the most active months of the year on the job front, not kicking off until 14th September. Yet once things start to move on the job front opportunities will continue to open up through to 19th November. It is the final six weeks of that period, from 4th October to 19th November, that are likely to be the busiest.
 
   Gemini   May 21 - Jun 21
While the rest of us had a chance to take our professional hats off over the holiday period, there is a good chance that you will move into 2019 feeling like your 2018 professional year never ended. In reality it didn’t, with a spill over into the early days of the New Year. This allows you to hit the ground running, but then pull back and assess your options. You begin the year with Mars in your career sector and Venus in your work sector, creating an auspicious start to the year on both fronts. However, with Mars leaving on New Year’s Day and Venus on 8th January, this is more a case of your 2018 professional year spilling into the early days of this year. After that things dial back, with Venus’ departure ending 15 months of continuous planetary activity on the job front, while Mars will give Neptune, in your career sector since 2012 and Chiron, here since 2010, a chance to pull back. While this is a chance for you to catch your breath and create a firebreak between one professional year and the next, it also means that you start the year with a huge amount of momentum on the job and career fronts, which can now take on a life of its own. Apart from a Full Moon on the job front on 19th May, all the activity in the first half of the year is on the career front, as is usually the case. That wasn’t the case last year, which is why 2018 was so busy. Things become active again on the career front with Mercury’s return to your career sector on 11th February. Able to pick up from where Mars left off on New Year’s Day, this could see some exciting developments unfold between 11th February and 21st April. This won’t have the intensity of the final months of 2018, but you no longer need that. Instead, this is a chance to look at where you want to take things this year. After a busy two months on the career front, things will dial back and with dreamy Neptune now on his own here for the majority of the year, it becomes more about keeping the dream alive and on track. The pace will pick up on the job front from 3rd October to 9th December. After Venus leaves your work sector on 8th January, this is the three month period where the professional gods are focused on work and job matters. There wasn’t a moment of 2018 that there wasn’t planetary activity on the job front, with much of this year building on what has already been created. This will be a chance to look at something new.
 
   Cancer   Jun 22 - Jul 22
While lucky Jupiter returned to your work sector in early November and the final two months of 2018 may have been busy, everything changes in the early days of the New Year. It may even feel like the professional gods have flipped a switch, setting everything in motion in the early hours of the year. Just starting the year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector is an advantage and as he is here until 3rd December, this is your most auspicious year for job growth and opportunities in over a decade. In fact, it is on the job front that you will find most of this year’s big opportunities. You begin the year with Mercury here as well and while he will leave on 5th January, this allows you to start the year with your head in the game. At this stage, with Uranus in retrograde motion in your career sector and Venus and Mars having gone into holiday mode towards the end of last year, you may even doubt that this really is the busy year this is destined to be. Yet from day one everything starts to change, making it important to use Mercury’s influence to work smarter from the get go. It begins with Mars’ return to your career sector on New Year’s Day, with your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit kicking in during the very early hours of the year. Uranus’ direct turn on 7th January will release the handbrake, just a day before Venus joins Jupiter in your work sector. When you throw in a total lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January, you have an explosion of opportunities opening up in the early weeks of 2019. Venus will leave your work sector on 4th February, Mars will leave your career sector on 14th February and Uranus on 6th March, bringing that initial rush to an end. With Jupiter in your work sector until 3rd December he can take it from here, keeping the wheels turning on the job front all year. While things will go quiet on the career front, you will need those few weeks until the Sun returns to your career sector on 21st March to catch your breath. This will kick off another busy two months on the career front, from 21st March to 15th May. However, nothing like the manic pace the first six weeks of this year will set. Meanwhile, while Jupiter will keep the wheels turning on the job front all year Venus will return to your work sector on 2nd November and the Sun on 23rd November to both make his final weeks count and take over when he moves on. Jupiter will leave on 3rd December, but there will be support to tie up loose ends, right through to the final hours of 2019.
 
   Leo   Jul 23 - Aug 22
To begin with, 2019 is doing a good job of disguising itself as an ordinary professional year and even as a fairly low key and quiet year. However for you, ‘ordinary’ means that with Saturn and Pluto in your work sector, the wheels are always turning and there is always a need to show up. Ordinary also means that you will begin the year with the Sun in your work sector, as will always be the case. This year you have the South Node on board as well and while for now, the impact has been minimal since its return in November, you’re about to find out what a game changer this has been. It is because the South Node is here and will be until May 2020, that the New Moon on 6th January will be no ordinary New Moon, rather a solar eclipse. It also means that the Full Moon here midyear will be no ordinary Full Moon, but a lunar eclipse on 17th July. This is going to give work and job matters a jump start in the first week of this new professional year and with Mercury returning a day earlier, on 5th January, you will have your head in the game, ready to manage and ride the momentum this will create and the potential for unexpected new beginnings. Both the Sun and Mercury will be gone by 24th January, but with Venus not returning until 4th February, it won’t be until then that the real implications will be felt. Venus will move through from 4th February to 2nd March and it is on her watch that the disguise is really blown off this year, with any pretence of being an ordinary professional year gone. Yet everything that happens on the job front this year is preparation for lucky Jupiter’s return on 3rd December. Joining up with Saturn and Pluto, this will kick off your most powerful and auspicious year on the job front in decades, if ever. An explosion of career potential starts with Mars’ return to your career sector on 15th February, just as Venus is exploiting your potential on the job front. This is Mars first visit in nearly two years, returning to fuel your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit and to fire things up on the career front. A Full Moon in your income sector on 20th February will create the full package, turning February into a stunning month across the income, work and career fronts. Yet on 6th March, just four days after Venus leaves your work sector and while Mars is still in your career sector, Uranus returns. Unlike the six months Uranus spend in your career sector last year, once he returns he is here until 2026. As Uranus reunites with Saturn and Pluto in your work sector it is game over, with the kind of forces never seen on the job and career fronts before now a near permanent fixture. The Sun, Venus and Mercury will all move through your career sector from 20th April to 9th June, lending their support to the powerful forces now in play. From this point on you will have continuous planetary activity in your career sector until 2026 and in your work sector until 2024.
 
   Virgo   Aug 23 - Sep 22
2019 is not a major professional year for you, in that there isn’t planetary activity on the job or career fronts all year and that suits you just fine. It was only in November that Mars wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your work sector and with a Full Moon on the career front at the end of November, you’ve had the thrust needed to bring your 2018 professional year home. You begin the year with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses and this is a huge advantage. This is a chance to catch your breath, get your bearings and even delay throwing yourself into this new professional year. As 2018 was such a busy year, even the professional gods are taking the first three weeks of the year easy. There will only be a slight overlap of activity on the career and job fronts this year, allowing you to focus on each separately. To start with the focus is on your work situation and job matters, with the Sun returning to your work sector on 20th January, as he does at this time every year. This is just over two months since Mars left, with work and job matters having had a chance to settle and play out, but with a firebreak that allows you to see the Sun’s return as a fresh start. There isn’t a lot of planetary activity on the job front, with the Sun here from 20th January to 20th February, Mercury from 24th January to 11th February and Venus from 2nd March to 27th March. However, these will be some of the best weeks of the year for work and job matters, along with Venus’ second visit, from 20th December to 14th January 2020. Now I hinted at an overlap between job and career matters. Held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus is late returning to your work sector and it is while she is still here that the first planetary activity on the career front will begin, with Juno’s return to your career sector on 11th February. Juno is not a major player, but she made a short visit here last October, while Mars was in your work sector and Venus was in your income sector, both making extended visits. With two Full Moons in your income sector this year, one on 21st March and the second on 19th April, this will replicate some of the conditions in play on the income, work and career fronts last year. Venus will leave your work sector on 27th March, wrapping up all planetary activity on the job front. However, it is just four days later that Mars will return to your career sector, taking what Juno has already started and firing things up. Just four days separate the end of a push on the job front and the start of this year’s planetary activity on the career front, which starts in earnest on 31st March and will then run through to 4th July. This is something that is normally months apart.
 
   Libra   Sep 23 - Oct 23
While 2019 isn’t an overly busy professional year and definitely not a challenging one, it is not exactly quiet or what you would call typical. A typical professional year, especially for your cosmic mates is no ongoing planetary activity in either of your two professional houses and then pockets of each year when things are active on either the job or career fronts. That has not been the reality for you for some time, for while Chiron returned to your work sector in 2010 and Neptune in 2012, Uranus had been there since 2003. Your work sector has been continuously active since 2003 and will be until Neptune leaves in 2026. When you have planets here for this long, they largely work in the background. At the same time, while your work sector has been continuously active, your career sector has not been, until now. The North Node’s return to your career sector in November puts this auspicious, lucky and positive energy in play on the career front until May 2020 and with Neptune in your work sector all year, this is an auspicious year on both fronts. However, as I said this doesn’t mean busy or challenging, for both are happy to work behind the scenes. They will, however, prove just how powerful they are when there is other planetary activity and in the case of the North Node, when the Sun becomes involved. You begin the year with Mars in your work sector, but as he will leave on New Year’s Day, the year might begin on a busy note, only to pull back. This is more a case of your 2018 professional year running into the early hours of 2019, something you are able to benefit from. Things will pick up again from 11th February to 21st April. It is during this period that the Sun, Mercury and Venus will all move through your work sector, but Chiron will also leave on 18th February. Here since 2010, Chiron has been holding things back, forcing you to continue to learn from the past. This has been important, but his departure will set you free to follow Neptune’s dreams. Once Venus leaves your work sector on 21st April dreamy Neptune will be on his own and apart from the Moon’s monthly visits, the most important being a Full Moon on 14th September, it will stay that way for the rest of the year. Yet in an auspicious case of good timing, Venus will leave your work sector on 21st April, the same day Juno returns to your career sector to kick off this year’s planetary activity on the career front. To start with this is more a chance to explore your options, with things really taking off with Mars’ return on 16th May. This kicks off some auspicious months on the career front that will run through to 12th August, with a total solar eclipse on 3rd July offering the North Node a chance to flex its muscles.
 
   Scorpio   Oct 24 - Nov 21
Regardless of how your 2018 professional year ended, the pace picks up dramatically in the New Year, with massive developments across the income, work and career fronts in January. 2018 ended with no planetary activity on the career front and with Uranus in retrograde motion on the job front. There was nothing in the final weeks of 2018 or even the final hours of December to suggest the massive shift waiting for you on the other side of the New Year. It is as though the professional gods have been waiting for the old year to end, with the pace picking up dramatically on the job front within the early hours of the year. It begins with Mars’ return to your work sector on New Year’s Day, where he will fire things up on the job front until leaving on 15th February. If this was all, this would give you a busy start to the year, but not the game changing one you actually have. This is more the start of a ripple effect. Just six days later Uranus will turn direct here on 7th January, releasing the handbrake, which Mars will be fighting against in his early days. This is likely to result in work and job matters shooting forward. It is a day later that Venus, the planet of money will join lucky Jupiter in your income sector, kicking off some of the most lucrative weeks of not just this year, but in over a decade. If that isn’t enough to pack into the early weeks of this new professional year, a total lunar eclipse in your career sector on 21st January is likely to be a major catalyst across the income, work and career fronts. With Uranus leaving your work sector on 6th March, wrapping up a visit that began in 2010, there is a massive push to make these final months count. Things will dial back after that, only to pick up again on the job front with the Sun’s return on 21st March. This kicks off a period that will run through to Venus’ departure on 15th May. This is both a chance to look at new work and job opportunities and to bring home everything launched the first two months of the year. With Uranus gone work and job matters really will dial back, but with lucky Jupiter in your income sector until 3rd December, this will remain a lucrative year. Jupiter will be there to support and benefit from the career opportunities that will begin opening up on 21st June and will continue to unfold through to 23rd August. This is only a two month window, but it hosts all the planetary activity on the career front this year. A Full Moon in your work sector on 14th October could be a catalyst for both income and job matters.
 
   Sagittarius   Nov 22 - Dec 21
The year gets off to a fairly quiet start professionally and that is just the way you want it. You begin the year with no planetary activity on the career front and only a token amount of planetary activity on the job front. Just enough to keep you engaged, but not enough to force you to keep your work hat on 24/7. This suggests you are facing a fairly typical professional year, which means a lot of focus on work and job matters in April and May and then a lot of focus on career matters in August and September, but nothing in between. Instead, the professional gods will call on you to get your work hat on in earnest from 15th February and then keep it on until 2026. This makes it important to make the most of the relative quiet to start with. Things are set to become very busy, very quickly thanks to Mars’ return to your work sector on 15th February. With the Sun not returning until 20th April each year, this will see things kick off two months earlier than they normally would. While Mars will leave on 31st March, before the Sun returns, Uranus’ return on 6th March will see the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, return to pick up from where he left off from last year. Uranus returned last May, but three months later turned retrograde and then after just six months here, retrograded back out again. This time Uranus is here to stay, beginning a journey towards finding your sense of purpose and your true path forward on the job front, that won’t end until 2026. Things won’t be busy throughout that time, but while Mars is here they will be. They are likely to be busy again from 20th April to 31st May. This is just a short period, but as the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through they will try and pack a lot in. Knowing that Uranus will stay on to continue what they start, their focus will be on opening as many new doors and getting as many balls in the air as possible. The middle months of the year offer some respite, with a chance for work and job matters to step back and career matters to move forward, in August. Uranus will turn retrograde on 12th August, just eight days before Mars returns to your career sector. This kicks off a busy push on the career front that will run from 18th August to 4th October. It begins with Mars’ return and ends with his departure, but during that time the Sun, Mercury and Venus will all move through. As the only planetary activity on the career front this year, there will be a push to pack in and accomplish as much as possible during that time.
 
   Capricorn   Dec 22 - Jan 19
The professional gods have dialled up the near perfect professional year for you. This puts you right in the Goldilocks zone, where there is not too much and not too little, with the professional gods getting the mix just right. There are advantages to having planetary activity in either one of your two professional houses all year, ensuring you have at least one professional god on the field at all time. But it means that there is no respite. With Mars visiting both your work and career sectors this year, this means that when either is active it is likely to be busy, driven and potentially successful. Yet there will be periods in between where things are able to simply play out. You will get your first taste of this when Mars returns to your work sector on 31st March. It is just 10 days earlier that the first of two Full Moons in your career sector will fall on 21st March, which I see as the professional gods’ first shot across the bow. With Venus having just wrapped up all planetary activity on the career front for 2018 in December, you need these early months to let things settle. The Full Moon on 21st March is a wakeup call from the professional gods, alerting you to the fact that things are getting ready to wake up. By the time the Moon comes full circle and creates a second Full Moon on 19th April, Mars will have been in your work sector for nearly three weeks and there will be a second chance to capture what you didn’t during the first Full Moon. Mars will leave your work sector on 16th May, ending what could be some of the busiest six weeks of the year. However, with the Sun and Mercury returning on 21st May, they will return just days later to continue what he started. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus won’t move through until 9th June to 4th July, extending the reach of job potential out to the middle of the year. This creates a fairly short break before things start up on the career front. Again, where Mars kicks things off on the job front two months before they normally would, he is later returning to your career sector. Mercury’s return on 14th September makes him the first planet on the scene this year. This smart and intellectually savvy planet is here until 3rd October. The Sun and Venus will both move through during that time, with Mars returning on 4th October to take over. Where Mars gets things started on the job front this year, he will bring things home on the career front, not leaving until 19th November.
 
   Aquarius   Jan 20 - Feb 18
While Jupiter left your career sector in early November, wrapping up a 13 month visit that will continue to have implications for years to come, the professional gods haven’t quite finished tying up loose ends. Venus spent much of Jupiter’s final months here and after returning in early August for what should have been less than a four week visit, is remarkably still here as you move into the New Year. A retrograde phase meant that Venus spent two months here before retrograding back out, only to return for a double dip visit in early December. Until she leaves on 8th January, Venus is a link to all that has transpired since October 2017, with a chance to bring things home. There will be no more planetary activity on the career front once Venus leaves, but with the North Node in your work sector all year, there will be more than enough momentum and a clear sense of direction. There wasn’t a moment of 2018 when you were able to take your professional hat off and while the North Node will keep your work hat on all year, apart from certain times during the year, this is more like having a compass or a GPS, giving you a clear sense of direction, but also a tailwind. Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector on 19th May, there will be no more planetary activity here until the final months of the year. It will begin with Mercury’s return on 3rd October and run through to early 2020, with the final three months of the year the best for career matters. The busiest months of any year on the job front are usually June and July, when the Sun moves through your work sector. Yet this year, this is more the epicentre of a much larger period, with things getting busier much earlier. It begins with Mars’ return on 16th May, with his first visit in nearly two years, creating what could be the busiest weeks of the year, before leaving on 2nd July. The timing is auspicious, because having the North Node here turns what should be an ordinary New Moon on 3rd July into a total solar eclipse. This creates the potential for major new beginnings. Venus will return on 4th July, creating a clear picture of developments on the job front this year. The solar eclipse is the epicentre, with the potential for major new developments and opportunities. Mars will spend six weeks here in the lead up to this solar eclipse, leaving just a day before, while Venus will return a day after to capitalise on anything this might trigger. Between the Sun, Mercury and Venus, they will take until 12th August to wrap things up.
 
   Pisces   Feb 19 - Mar 20
With lucky Jupiter in your career sector until 3rd December, this was never going to be an ordinary professional year, with active periods and then time in between when not a lot is happening. Of course, even if that was the case, just because the professional gods aren’t active doesn’t mean things go off the boil. In an ordinary year, the planets move through, stir things up, get things moving and then leave you to take it from there. Because Jupiter is in your career sector for the majority of the year he will be at your side, making this the most potentially expansive and opportune year for professional growth in over a decade. To start with things are still fairly quiet and while Jupiter has been here since early November, you are yet to really feel the full implications. However you can expect things to start moving in the early days of the year and not just here, but across the income, work and career fronts. It begins with Mars’ return to your income sector on New Year’s Day, with the warrior planet of the cosmos delighted to find lucky Jupiter in your career sector. On a mission to get the year off to a lucrative staff, Mars will work with Jupiter from the get go. Held back by a retrograde phase last year, Venus will finally return to your career sector on 8th January, just three days after Mercury leaves. As the planet of money, Venus will be delighted to find both Mars and Jupiter engaged, helping her in her mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. If that isn’t enough to get this professional year moving, a total lunar eclipse on the job front on 21st January should do the trick. With Venus and Jupiter in your career sector and Mars and Uranus in your income sector, this has the potential to be a catalyst for unexpected developments across the income, work and career fronts. Venus will leave your career sector on 4th February, but Jupiter will continue to keep the wheels turning all year. Things may settle down after that, not to experience another surge until midyear. Between 27th June and 23rd August the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars will all move through your work sector, creating the busiest and the most opportune months of 2019 on the job front. It is on 2nd November that the Sun, Mercury and Venus will begin arriving back in your career sector, ready to support Jupiter in his final weeks, before he leaves on 3rd December. Mercury will even stay on until 29th December in order to tie up the loose ends of what, by then should have been an extraordinary professional year.
