Monthly Career Horoscopes - December 2019
This is a month when the ordinary meets the extraordinary and there is a crossover between the two. The ordinary is that the Sun will always return to your career sector just before Christmas and the solar spotlight will always be on your career and professional situation, matters and options in the last 10 days and the first three weeks of every year. What has also become ordinary is that you have had Pluto in your career sector since 2008 and Saturn since 2017, making this an already powerful time professionally. Even starting the month with Venus here is not unusual, with this her second mission to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and to steer things in a lucrative direction this year. It is in the early days of the month that the ordinary makes way for the extraordinary with Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your career sector by 3rd December. Jupiter returns once every 12 years to spend 12 months promoting professional growth and expansion, so even that alone is not extraordinary. What is extraordinary is that Jupiter will join forces with Pluto and Saturn, for the first time anywhere since 1982 and for the first time here in your career sector our lifetime. This brings the planets of change, luck and the planet that has the power to move mountains together in a way that not only changes the dynamics of this professional year but sets the scene for 2020 to be a professional year for the ages. Venus will leave on 20th December, two days before the Sun returns on 22nd December to shine the solar spotlight on a completely different landscape to what he had expected. This makes her time here a chance to raise the bar on your professional expectations and your professional wish list. Venus won't return in 2020 and by the time she returns in early 2021 both Jupiter and Saturn will be gone, so it is during the first 20 days of this month that your heart has its say. With Jupiter here until December 2020, Venus gives you the ability to set out on this journey with a wish list.
After Mars left your work sector last month the urgency and the pressure has dropped back to a more manageable level, giving you a chance to catch your breath before the Sun returns to your career sector next month, as he does every January. However, things aren't as low key as you might expect them to be and there are two reasons for this. The first reason is that while Mars left your work sector last month he didn't leave it empty. While only an asteroid Juno, queen of commitment is not only staying on but is here until September 2020. Juno falls in the Goldilocks zone, where she has the ability to keep work and job matters on track, but not to make demands. In the meantime, while Juno is providing a steady as she goes approach to work and job matters, with the fast and furious approach of recent months replaced by a slow and steady one, the professional gods still have one last wildcard up their sleeve. That wildcard is Venus' return to your career sector on 20th December, a month before the Sun is due to return. Again, Venus falls in that same Goldilocks zone, where everything is just right. As the planet of money, Venus returns to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and to steer things in a lucrative direction. However, Venus is not here to bring demands or to push you to keep your professional hat on over the holiday period, yet due to spend the rest of this year and the first two weeks of 2020 in your career sector, she brings plenty of opportunities. Top of that list is the opportunity to end one professional year and start the next with your professional confidence high, the ability to attract opportunities, to know what you want and to steer things in a lucrative direction. The Moon's return to your career sector on 28th December means that while it will leave on New Year's Eve, you will end the year with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled.
The Sun's departure from your work sector last month should have and usually does bring all planetary activity on the job front to a close for the year, except that is far from the case. Instead, even at the halfway point in November had you predicted how this professional year would end, it would be a slow winding down. At the halfway point in November Neptune will in retrograde motion in your career sector, Mercury was in retrograde motion in your work sector and the Sun just days away from leaving, with nothing to suggest that this professional year would come roaring back into life. Yet that it exactly what it did with Mars' return to your work sector on 19th November, just two days before Mercury turned direct and just four days before the Sun left. Instead of winding down, this professional year has caught its second wind and with Mars not leaving until the New Year, 2019 has saved its busiest month until last. For while the Sun put the solar spotlight on your work situation, job matters and options as it moved through and Mercury will continue to provide the intellectually savvy edge needed to work smarter until he leaves on 9th December, Mars is here to make things happen. This is Mars' first visit in two years and last for another two so he will be determined to make it count. Because Mars will be here over Christmas, New Year and the holiday period there will have to be some compromise. However, with Neptune still in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector and Venus returning next month, nothing is as urgent as Mars will try and make out. This does, however, mean that there will be continuity between one professional year and the next, with much of the momentum on the job front, in particular, being created now. This also means that there is no need to finish anything off, that you can carry things over into the New Year.
While this is an important month for work and job matters it is also a transition month, with Jupiter's departure in the early days of the month bringing his 13 month visit to a close, while handing the reins to planets that can bring things back to a more mundane focus. By 3rd December Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion will be gone, ending a 13 month visit that began in November 2018, designed to promote job growth, create opportunities and to lay down the foundations for future and ongoing opportunities. This is when the reins are handed to the Sun, who will always spend the first three weeks of December in your work sector. If Jupiter represents the extraordinary then the Sun represents the ordinary and if Jupiter has spent the last 13 months building the foundations for ongoing job growth, then the Sun is here to figure out the 'when, where and how'. With Jupiter gone there is even a chance to take some time out over the holiday period, though in a small window between 29th December and 3rd January. While the Sun will leave your work sector on 22nd December Mercury, held back by a retrograde phase and not returning until 9th December, is here until 29th December. This gives you time to work smarter during the final weeks of this professional year, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open. It is once Mercury leaves on 29th December that you will have no planetary activity in your work sector, for the first time in 14 months and a chance to finally take your work hat off. That should be the end of the story but it isn't, with the professional gods giving you a chance to catch your breath before things start up again in the New Year. It is Mars' return on 3rd January that will pick up from where Mercury left off and not leaving until the end of February, this is when the full implications from Jupiter's time here can be exploited. Mars will return a month after Jupiter leaves and even with the Sun and Mercury there for much of that time, it is more a chance to regroup.
There aren't enough words to describe just how game changing the developments on the job front this month are and that is saying something, because there are already powerful forces in play and has been all year. In fact, it was two years ago that Saturn returned to your work sector, joining up with Pluto who has been here since 2008. Just the fact that they are drawing closer to an alignment in the New Year is powerful and significant. However, it is the arrival of Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion that turns this into something extraordinary and something never seen here before. Jupiter returns to your work sector once every 12 years, spending a year promoting job growth, expansion and opportunities and this can be described as your luckiest year for work and job matters in over a decade. It was during Jupiter's last visit that Pluto returned in 2008, so the planets of luck and change have history and to a degree, Pluto has kept the legacy of the last visit alive. It was two years ago that Saturn returned and this has given you time to put in the hard work required to prepare for Jupiter's return. By 3rd December, when Jupiter is back in your work sector, you will enter a world where you have the planets of luck, change and the planet that can give you the power to move mountains, together in your work sector for the first time in our lifetime. This will not only have an impact this month but on the whole of 2020. By the time the Sun returns on 22nd December to turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation, job matters and options this powerful trio will have settled in but you will also have had another advantage by then. You also begin the month with Venus in your work sector and while she will leave on 20th December, not before fuelling your job confidence, working to attract opportunities and to steer things in a lucrative direction. More importantly, Venus will work to leave you with a wish list.
To begin with, it as business and usual on both the job and career fronts, as you would expect at this time of year. It has been months since this year's planetary activity on the career front ran its course and with the Sun not returning to your work sector until January, as it does at that time every year, all indications at the start of the month suggest that what you see is what you get. And what you see is no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses but you do have the Moon returning to your work sector in the early hours of the month. With the Moon here until 3rd December, this is when you might start to suspect that the professional gods still have a few wildcards up their sleeve. This should and is an ordinary visit by the Moon, one designed to give you an intuitive read on work and job matters. Returning so early in the month it means that this is not the Moon's last visit for the year, so there isn't even an urgent need or call to pay too much attention. However, it is during this visit and especially as the Moon sharpens your sixth sense and dusts off your over the horizon radar, that there will be a sense of anticipation. For your over the horizon radar isn't picking up developments in the New Year and instead, developments this side of Christmas. What this is picking up on is Venus' approach, ahead of her return to your work sector on 20th December. This is an early Christmas present from the professional gods, with Venus returning to spend the rest of this year and the first two weeks of 2020 fuelling your job confidence, attracting opportunities and steering things in a lucrative direction. However, this is not the only early Christmas present from the professional gods and it is not even the first, with that honour going to a Full Moon in your career sector on 12th December. This is the Moon's last visit for the year, with a chance to not only fuel your professional instincts and imagination but to bring career and professional matters to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point.
Things are deceptively quiet on the professional front this month, in a way that presents as a rise in job and professional confidence but a lack of urgency on both fronts as if you were waiting for something. That something is a lunar eclipse on the career front in the New Year, followed by Venus' return to your work sector just days later, over a month before the Sun is due. This is what the professional gods are waiting for, with January the month when your 2020 professional year will spring into life in a surprising and dramatic way. Yet behind the scenes, the main players are already here and there are a few practice runs. The reason for a lunar eclipse next month is that you still have the North Node in your career sector and will do until May 2020. This is not only providing a clear sense of professional direction and the momentum to keep things moving forward, but is already lining things up for next month's lunar eclipse. You will have a practice run when the Moon makes its last visit to your career sector for the year and before returning as a lunar eclipse, from 13th December to 15th December. This will provide clues on what the lunar eclipse might trigger but also on how to bring this professional year home. In the meantime, while Venus won't return to your work sector until two weeks into the New Year, Neptune is spending his first full month in direct motion here. Neptune only turned direct in the final 48 hours of November, so is at a standstill at the start of the month and will only very gradually start to pick up speed during the month. Even by the New Year Neptune will be barely moving, happy to wait for Venus' return and the push start she will give work and job matters. The Moon will move through your work sector from 3rd December to 6th December and just days after Neptune's direct turn, this will be a valuable chance to get your bearings. The Moon will come full circle on New Year's Eve and will end 2019 and begin 2020 here.
While things are likely to be relatively quiet on the job front this month it is for all the right reasons. The most active months of any year on the job front and therefore the busiest are usually March and April, when the faster moving planets move through. However, next year you have Venus returning in February to kick things off well over a month earlier and after that rush is over, you not only have Mars returning in June but will then spend the rest of 2020 here. In short, 2020 is destined to be a busy year, so if December is relatively quiet, embrace it. However, quiet doesn't mean that you won't be busy at work and that you won't have end of year deadlines to meet, just that the stars aren't contributing to this. Whether it is Eris, in her last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector or Chiron, turning direct here on 13th December, they are both barely moving. These are planets that are here for years if not decades, so operate in the background anyway. What you do have this month is a dramatic drop in work tension or job pressure, which had been pervasive over recent months. With the planets on the job front slowing down and preparing to become active in the New Year, this leaves you free to wrap up this year on your terms. The most important days this month will be when the Moon makes its last visits to your two professional houses for the year. The first will be its last visit to your work sector for the year from 6th December to 8th December. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, this will be a chance to check in with both Chiron and Eris. With both still retrograde then, this will also be a chance to reflect back over the year. The Moon will make its last visit to your career sector for the year from 15th December to 17th December and with no planetary activity here, this is a valuable chance to get your professional bearings. This will fuel your professional instincts and imagination during Chiron's early days in direct motion in your work sector and during the Sun's final days in your income sector.
While this is a huge month for income matters, opportunity and potential, as if not wanting to get in the way but still wanting to provide backup, this is a fairly quiet month professionally. With no planetary activity in your career sector, as you would expect at this time of year and Uranus in his last full month in retrograde motion in your work sector, there is no push from the professional gods. However, this does put you in a unique situation, in that in retrograde motion or not, this is the first time you have come to the end of a professional year with Uranus in your work sector in eight decades. Normally there would be no planetary activity in your work sector at this time of year at all, so it would just be the Moon's last visits to your two professional houses that has any input from the professional gods. Uranus did spend a few months in your work sector last year before retrograding back out, but he left in early November so was long gone by December. So how do you end a professional year with a major, outer planet in your work sector? As Uranus is the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected, the answer is that there is no way of knowing, only that this is your first chance to find out. With Uranus here until 2026, while this is the first time in eight decades that you have been in this position, it will not be the last and is now the new normal. Uranus is slowing down and after a Full Moon last month and being harassed by planets on the other side of the sky, he will be happy to stay in the back ground. You will have your best chance to sense how to play things when the Moon moves through your work sector from 8th December to 11th December. As well as giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters, coming full circle from last month's Full Moon this could bring some unexpected developments. The Moon's last visit to your career sector for the year, from 17th December to 19th December, will be a chance to fuel your professional instincts and imagination.
While this is a huge month for you personally with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto coming together in Capricorn for the first time in our lifetime, this is also the kind of professional month that falls right in the Goldilocks zone. There is just enough to get excited about but not enough to create demands or interfere with your ability to take your work and professional hats off over the holiday period. It is in fact 'just right'. What you have this month are the ingredients for a good month and therefore, for a good end to the year across the income, work and career fronts. They won't all come together at the same time, but each will contribute enough to the pot to go around. The month begins with the asteroid Juno, queen of commitment on her own in your career sector and she fits right in the Goldilocks zone. Juno returned 15 days before Mars left, with his departure last month ending a busy but also high stress period. Juno is able to keep the momentum going but without the demands that Mars was making on you and it is her position here that allows her to capture the other influences. The first of those 'other' influences is the Moon's return for its last visit to your work sector for the year and the Full Moon this will create on 12th December. As well as bringing work and job matters to fruition or to a head, turning and/or tipping point, the Moon will give you an intuitive read on work and job matters and will form a friendly aspect to Juno on the career front. It is that friendly aspect that will allow Juno to capture all that the Full Moon triggers, with the days either side of the Full Moon on 12th December likely to be good days for both job and career matters. Juno will be holding onto the energy of this when the third factor comes into play, which is Venus' return to your income sector on 20th December. Here for the rest of this year and into the first two weeks of 2020, Venus is making the final weeks of this year and nearly weeks of next year the most potentially lucrative. It is the Moon's return to your career sector from 19th December to 22nd December that will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled as Venus returns.
When the Sun left your career sector last month it was just two days after Mercury turned direct here, so while this kept the doors open it was supposed to be in a fairly low key way. After all, while Mercury does make fairly rapid turnarounds compared to other planets, he still has to come to a standstill in order to turn direct. With Mercury not leaving until 9th December, this gives you time to slowly get your head around your options and with Venus been and gone, to finalise your professional game plan and resolutions. Or at least that is what the picture should have looked like and did until Mars returned just days before Mercury's direct turn and before the Sun left. Where the Sun and now Mercury are wrapping up their annual visits, this is Mars' first visit to your career sector in two years and as the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos he is here to make things happen. With Mars not leaving until the New Year, the rest of this professional year and through to the early days of January will be spent in the fast lane. Once Mars leaves there will be no planetary activity on the career front until well into the second half of 2020 and with a lunar eclipse on the job front in the New Year, he is working to make every moment count. Fortunately, it was late last month that Mars had the same confrontation with Uranus in your home and family sector that every other planet returning to your career sector this year has faced. For Mars, this is the first time he has returned to find Uranus there in eight decades and he may have been slow to accept his work/life balance reminders. However, considering a need to keep your professional hat on right through the Christmas, New Year and the holiday period, those reminders couldn't have come with better timing. The Moon will make its last visit to your career sector for the year from 22nd December to 23rd December, making this a valuable chance to get your bearings.
Judging from how the month begins, the chances of taking your professional hat off over the holiday period are looking slim to nothing, with all indications suggesting a repeat of last year. Last December Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion was in the early weeks of a 13 month visit to your career sector and while other planets have come and gone in that time, as you move into the new month he is still here. However, where 12 months ago you were in the early weeks of new journey, as you move into the new month you are in the final days, with Jupiter gone by 3rd December. While this is not the end of the story, it is the end of the thrust to expose all the potential, set things in motion and provide every possible resource, allowing Jupiter to move on for other planets to exploit the potential. Those other planets are the Sun, who is here until 22nd December and Mercury, who will return on 9th December with the intellectually savvy edge needed to start making choices, decisions and plans and more strategic moves. With Mercury leaving on 29th December, this will give you the advantage of retaining an intellectually savvy edge through to the end of this professional year but then allowing you to take your professional hat off over the New Year. Yet while Mercury's departure on 29th December might appear to be the end of a chapter that began late last year, it is in fact just a chance to catch your breath and a very short one at that, with Mars returning on 3rd January. With Mars here until the end of February, it is during the first two months of 2020 that all this year's potential can be fully exploited. December can be seen as the month when Jupiter's 13 month visit ends but when the Sun and Mercury have a chance to pull things back, take care of the details and to wind things back, before Mars cranks things up again in the New Year. Meanwhile, with no planetary activity on the job front, the Moon will make 15th December to 17th December important days for work and job matters.
