Your Career Forecast: From Solstice to Equinox
Welcome to your winter Career Forecast, covering the period between the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2013 and the Vernal Equinox on March 20, 2014.
Navigating the Winter Roads
With eight planets (including Pluto) plus the Moon and the Sun occupying any or all of the 12 houses, a forecast can appear to contradict itself, but really it can’t—it is what it is. If you see one negative aspect, there may be two other more-positive aspects occurring simultaneously. That’s why looking at the overall picture and recognizing the obstacles and possibilities surrounding you can help you make informed choices about your career or any other aspect of life.
Planets in Retrograde (Retro Time Machines)
When planets retrograde it’s like a time machine that lets you theoretically go back so you can review and/or tweak things. You can’t alter the past, but you can take steps to get back on track if need be.
Here are the major retrogrades that, depending on where they are in your chart, may or may not affect your Career Forecast:
• Venus Retrograde in Capricorn on December 21, 2013 ending in Capricorn on January 31, 2014
• Mercury Retrograde in Pisces on February 6, 2014 ending in Aquarius on February 28, 2014
• Mars Retrograde in Libra on March 1, 2014 ending May 19, 2014 in Libra
• Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio on March 2, 2014 through July 20, 2014 in Scorpio
• Jupiter Retrograde in Cancer (since November 2013) goes direct on March 6, 2014 in Cancer
Now let’s take a look at your Sun Sign’s Career Forecast. Don’t forget to also read the forecast for your Rising Sign, if you know it.
Professionally, January is a great month. A new position or a promotion could be on the horizon. In February, Venus is in full forward motion in your career house, and that’s always good news. If you’re involved in a business partnership, you may need to reevaluate your commitment in March.

From January 11 through January 31, Mercury will occupy your career house and this works in your favor. If signing an employment contract, do so before January 25. Mercury Retrograde slips out of Pisces and back into your career house again on February 12 through the 28th, so don’t pick February as your time for new career adventures. In March, a business partner may surprise you.
Here’s the best news possible: There are two times in 2014 when your career gets the help of Mercury, your ruling planet, in your career house—January 31 through February 12 and again on March 17 through April 7.
Beginning December 21, 2013 and ending January 31, 2014, Venus retrogrades in Capricorn, your opposite sign. Work may slow down a bit just after Christmas. But January also offers a New Moon in Capricorn and a Full Moon in Cancer—days that surround them will work for your career. In March career matters start to pick up again once Jupiter goes direct in your sign.

Due to Venus Retrograde in your house of daily work, January may have its moments. However a New Moon in the same house on January 1 as well as an alignment on the 16th both look promising for new work opportunities. On February 6 Mercury retrogrades in your house of other people’s money. This mean you should wait to sign contracts until after President’s Day.
On January 30 there’s a New Moon in your daily work house, which is good career news. Mercury will retrograde first in Pisces and then Aquarius (in your house of daily work) between February 12 and the 28th—try not to rock the boat at work. Venus then helps your daily working life when she moves into the same house on March 5.
Mars in your sign (since December 2013 and through July 25, 2014) will push your life forward in many ways including in your career. However it does retrograde beginning March 1. Jupiter moves forward on March 6, when this planet of luck and expansion should improve your career life immensely. From February 6 through the 12th Mercury will be retrograde in your daily work house. Just lay low at work (or take the week off).
January 1, 15 and 16 are all great days that help get your career off to a great start and you may come up with some revolutionary ideas. There’s a Full Moon in your career house on February 14, which could go either way—just lay low and soak it all in. If you work in publishing or in the spiritual realm, mark March 6 as a day of expansion in your life.
The first New Moon of January could surprise you with an unexpected opportunity. The Full Moon on January 15 can help you negotiate the money side of your career. On March 6, Jupiter moves life forward again, which benefits your working life—the world opens up. Your career and wallet will both benefit under March 16’s Full Moon.
Since December 7, 2013 Mars has been championing your career house. It will continue to do so through most of your Career Forecast until it retrogrades on March 1 (though May). Still, the New Moon in your sign on January 1 is telling you that this is your year. If you’re looking for a business partner, January 16 is a great day for a meeting. After Venus goes direct in your sign on January 31, you start to feel more stable in your career.
Though currently retrograde, Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, will be in your house of daily work through the middle of July, 2014. New career opportunities abound during the Full Moon on January 15 in your house of daily work, and the New Moon on January 30 is the beginning of your personal New Year. You also have karmic Saturn which continues its long transit of your career house. It turns retrograde after March 2 (through July). This transit that will help you decide whether or not it’s time to stay or move on to another career.

Networking is your gift, and the New Moon on January 1 could help you parlay your social skills into a new job or career. Venus, also in Capricorn, will go direct on January 31 which is the same day that Mercury enters your sign—great news for your Career Forecast. The Full Moon on February 14 is good for love, but it’s even better for your daily working life. Mars continues to champion your house of joined financial forces. It will retrograde on March 1, so form any work partnerships before then (or after May).
