Virgo Forecast for 2019: Work & Business
2019 is not a major professional year for you, in that there isn't planetary activity on the job or career fronts all year and that suits you just fine. It was only in November that Mars wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your work sector and with a Full Moon on the career front at the end of November, you've had the thrust needed to bring your 2018 professional year home. You begin the year with no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses and this is a huge advantage. This is a chance to catch your breath, get your bearings and even delay throwing yourself into this new professional year. As 2018 was such a busy year, even the professional gods are taking the first three weeks of the year easy.
There will only be a slight overlap of activity on the career and job fronts this year, allowing you to focus on each separately. To start with the focus is on your work situation and job matters, with the Sun returning to your work sector on 20th January, as he does at this time every year. This is just over two months since Mars left, with work and job matters having had a chance to settle and play out, but with a firebreak that allows you to see the Sun's return as a fresh start. There isn't a lot of planetary activity on the job front, with the Sun here from 20th January to 20th February, Mercury from 24th January to 11th February and Venus from 2nd March to 27th March. However, these will be some of the best weeks of the year for work and job matters, along with Venus' second visit, from 20th December to 14th January 2020.
Now I hinted at an overlap between job and career matters. Held back by a retrograde phase last year Venus is late returning to your work sector and it is while she is still here that the first planetary activity on the career front will begin, with Juno's return to your career sector on 11th February. Juno is not a major player, but she made a short visit here last October, while Mars was in your work sector and Venus was in your income sector, both making extended visits. With two Full Moons in your income sector this year, one on 21st March and the second on 19th April, this will replicate some of the conditions in play on the income, work and career fronts last year. Venus will leave your work sector on 27th March, wrapping up all planetary activity on the job front. However, it is just four days later that Mars will return to your career sector, taking what Juno has already started and firing things up. Just four days separate the end of a push on the job front and the start of this year's planetary activity on the career front, which starts in earnest on 31st March and will then run through to 4th July. This is something that is normally months apart.
