It’s showtime! Dynamic, lusty, assertive Mars moves into Pisces on Monday for the first time in two years. You’ll be more than ready to get 2017 underway, so much so that you probably won’t wait til New Year’s Eve to get rolling. When a planet is in your sign, it places its emphasis on you: your self-image, how you view yourself and important new cycles beginning in your life.
And in a rather sweet coincidence the Sun enters the eleventh house of your deepest hopes and wishes on Wednesday, a perfect setup for dreaming big and making progress. This is also the house of friends and networking, so if you want to achieve something important it would be beneficial to team up with someone else.
For instance, hooking up with an exercise buddy is a good way to start a fitness regimen. You can be held accountable by someone else and have fun in the process. A pal could introduce you to a new lover. A team environment could be the best way to launch a work project rather than trying to go it alone.
There is a little fly in the ointment, however. Mercury retrogrades in the eleventh house on Monday, indicating that friends and colleagues could flake out. There is the distinct possibility that you may need to weed out the true pals from the frenemies or slackers before progress can be made. Pay close attention to the company you keep in the weeks ahead.
And even though Saturday is Christmas Eve, it’s a fabulous day for career progress with a rare Saturn-Uranus meeting. You can take advantage of this aspect on Thursday and Friday but it reaches critical mass on the weekend. Your work life could be completely overhauled, as you change industries, land a new position with far more responsibility, or create a company that will enjoy enormous success.
Even if you are happy where you are and have no plans for big changes, tweaking your systems, habits and protocols can create a domino effect that will pay off handsomely down the road.
