The biggest impact this month is less what is here or developing and more what isn't here. It was just before Christmas that Saturn left your work sector, bringing his three year push to a close. You are so used to being busy and to have Saturn constantly pushing you to stay focused, that this has become your normal. With the Sun and Venus both having left your work sector within days of Saturn, this has seen the focus on work and job matters drop back dramatically. You start the month with Mercury still in your work sector, but in his early days in direct motion in no hurry. At the same time, with Uranus turning direct in your career sector on the 3rd January and Eris on the 10th January, they begin the month stationary and in direct motion. All three planets in your two professional houses are either in their early days direct or retrograde, are all barely moving and all have their 'stop' signs raised. This is a complete contrast to not just last month, but the last three years. What you have is a chance to finally catch your breath. Until leaving your work sector on the 11th January Mercury brings a chance to keep your head in the game but is also giving you a chance to hear yourself think. This creates a very quiet start to this new professional year and that's exactly what you need, for it won't stay quiet. This pace will pick up dramatically on the work front when Mars returns on the 27th January. By then Uranus and Eris will have been in direct motion in your career sector for several weeks and the pace will be starting to pick up there as well. So enjoy this quiet start to the year and the chance to catch your breath before the next wave.
