Happy New Year! As you enter the year, you’re in a new cycle, between eclipses (with a stellium of planets in your sixth house of work, daily routines, and life) and rearranging the structure of your life, work, and daily routines. You may be starting a new job, new project, or perhaps new routine, and this calls for a careful transition as you implement new structures that support the life you’re building and the work you’re doing.
Over the past 18 months, you’ve been working relentlessly hard. Now you’re at the end of a phase of transformation, transitioning into a new phase as the Cancer full moon and lunar eclipse align on January 10. You may not have all the answers, but work by a process of elimination. Let go of what doesn’t work and you’ll be left with what does. You’re stepping over the threshold, building a life that gives back to the world and works for you as much as you work for it.
With Mars in Sagittarius, be fueled by your passion and creativity, and be willing to explore new ways of looking at old problems. Seek solutions and you’ll find them. Brainstorming sessions could be extremely productive, but put ego aside to focus on the greater task at hand rather than get caught up in office politics.
Venus, the ruler of your professional sector, is in Aquarius and highlighting your professional partnerships. It could be easier for you to align with others who can offer you the logistical, financial, tangible, or intellectual support you need. Part of being a good leader is being humble enough to listen and rolling up your sleeves when necessary to get the job done. Lead by example and you can inspire the support you need.
