Virgo Forecast for 2023: Work & Business
On the one hand, it is business as usual or a continuation of last year as you move into this new professional year but on the other hand, business is usual is such an anomaly from what you would normally expect that you could take for granted what a massive head start you have. Just starting the year with Mars in your career sector is a huge advantage and especially as the warrior planet of the cosmos returned for what is normally a six week visit in August. The retrograde turn that will keep Mars here until March is still underway and this is holding things back, potentially leading to the false impression that on the career front things have become stalled. At the same time, with Saturn in your work sector since 2020 and on his own since early last year, it is more of the same and possibly with a lot still being asked of you on the job front. However, change is on the way and it begins within the first 72 hours of the year.
It begins with Venus' early return to your work sector on 3rd January, ahead of the Sun who won't turn the solar spotlight onto your work situation, job matters and options until he returns on 20th January. This is just a day before Venus leaves, giving the planet of desire and attraction time to not only work with Saturn to exploit the hard work he has required from you over recent years, but she will also move into a friendly aspect to Mars in your work sector as she moves through. It is while Venus is here that Mars will turn direct on 13th January, something that will take the brakes off this new professional year. Once Mercury leaves your work sector on 3rd March Saturn will be on his own, but the hard taskmaster of the cosmos is all about to leave, with his departure on 8th March leaving your work sector empty for the first time since 2020, but not for long.
It is just a few weeks later that Pluto, the planet of change and revolution will return, or begin to transition into your work sector for the first time in our lifetime. This is something that will take time, with Pluto retrograding back out on 11th June, only to return next year when he will make this his home for the next 20 years. Where Saturn has been all about hard work, discipline and structure, Pluto will be looking at using this as the foundation for massive change over the coming years. Meanwhile, while Mars will do everything he can to fire things up on the career front before leaving on 26th March, his departure will temporarily leave it empty, with a chance to let things play out before Venus leads a new parade of planets through, starting with her return on 11th April and ending with Mercury's departure on 27th June. With all returning to find Pluto in your work sector for the first time in our lifetime, these will be some of the most important months of this professional year.
