It is not so much that things got more challenging in the later part of December or even that Christmas got in the way of the closing weeks of your old professional year and more because of the protests that Jupiter mounted. Ever since Jupiter returned to your home and family sector in September an opposition with Uranus in your career sector became inevitable. This was always going to put your home and professional lives onto a collision course and bring work/life balance tensions or issues to a head. The fact that this happened over Christmas, simply made them impossible to avoid. Those tensions are easing back, but hopefully you have learned something from this, ready to make work/life balance part of your New Year's resolutions. This is something that won't go away, especially if ignored, but now you know the score can be easily managed. For manage this you must, for while your 2017 professional year gets off to a strong but measured start, once Mars returns to your career sector on the 28th January and Venus early next month, the year is going to take off on you. With Saturn in your work sector until the 20th December and Uranus not leaving your career sector until March 2019, this was always going to be a huge and busy professional year, but it's developments that Venus and Mars will trigger that will turn the period from the 28th January to the 6th June to some of the most extraordinary ever experienced. To start with hold back, at least until after Mercury's short double dip visit is over. Mercury will retrograde back into your work sector on the 5th January, over a month after leaving, but leaving again on the 13th January this is a short eight day opportunity to spend time back at the drawing board. It is during this time that the Moon will make its first visit to your career sector for the year, from the 5th January to the 7th January, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp at the time. With Uranus in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector, on both the work and career fronts measure twice and cut once, at least until the 28th January.
