Your Horoscope by Susan Miller
This will be a banner month for your career, for so much of what you’ve worked to achieve is coming to fruition. For three years, you’ve been operating under the watchful gaze of Saturn, the taskmaster planet that taught you how to reach for the stars through hard work and dedication to ideals. During the past three years, you have had continual feedback from experienced people to sharpen your game. When Saturn first came to your tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement on December 23, 2014, you began your course of training. Think back to where you were then, and where you are now. See how far you’ve come, and how much valuable experience you’ve gained. You are very close to being able to put that knowledge to very good use.
Saturn is leaving his position in Sagittarius this month on December 19 or 20 (depending on your time zone) and is not due to return until 2044. Visits from Saturn in any one part of the chart are rare, as we only get two to three visits in each of the 12 sectors of our chart. Over the past three years, Saturn was on the angles of your chart, specifically the points that corresponds to the southernmost point in northern latitudes, and in southern latitudes, the northernmost point. In other words, Saturn has been on your mid-heaven point, the area of your reputation and contribution to your field and the world.
Any planet that corresponds to the north, south, east, or west point on the compass acts super powerfully, like a wild stallion. Not only did you have Saturn, a planet known to strictly demand standards of excellence from you and concentration on your goal to the exclusion of everything almost everything else in the most important career sector of your chart, but with Saturn on an angle, he also acted with double strength.
My point in telling you this is that your life about to become smoother, easier, and less stressful when Saturn moves off that angle and into a gentler part of your solar chart. Saturn never sends rewards while the course of training is ongoing, but only after it is over. With Saturn leaving this month, you will receive your material or spiritual gift from Saturn as thanks to you for dealing with his vigorous training.
The reason I feel you will not be quite get instant professional relief is that the powerful new moon of December 18 in the very same area of the chart that you and I have been discussing may bring you a big career offer in the days that follow this new moon. The new position would come with hefty, great responsibility, but also power and status too. If you are self-employed, it would come from a prestigious, respected client, and accepting the offer would surely boost your professional profile in your industry. There would be a lot of work to do, so keep that in mind when you state your fee.
You have your solar tenth house of honors, awards, and achievement packed with planets, with the Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Mercury, plus the Sun and new moon. Venus’ presence ensures everyone loves you, so go for the gold, because doors will swing open for you. The offer is likely to come to you this month, within days or weeks of the new moon, and you may also get much publicity as well. You earned the acclaim you will receive now for all you learned and work you’ve done over the years working in your specialty. You are due for reward – this new assignment may be it.
Last month Jupiter entered your ninth house of international places and relationships, and this is where the golden nuggets lie. Keep developing your contacts overseas, and this coming year, make it a point to actually get on a plane to schedule face-to-face meetings. This will benefit you more than you can imagine at this juncture. Happily, Mars has just entered the same part of your chart to energize this part of your life further. Both Mars and Jupiter are in Scorpio, in loving angle to your Pisces Sun. You could not wish for a better situation. Mars will remain in your ninth house from December 9 to January 26.
If you don’t do any work with executives in foreign countries, there are other areas that are percolating along and could be equally profitable for you. Those include any work having to do with academia, whether you are going back to school to get your advanced degree or catering to the college market.
