Aquarius Forecast for 2019: Work & Business
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.
