As you stagger, exhausted, to the end of 2023, no one would know. You persevere beautifully. You rise again in 2024, the triumphant butterfly. Success is swimming through your tenth career house as the new year begins.
So for January, I would definitely concentrate on some good-old fashioned ambition – the kind you used to have – on your work and career more than on a personal relationship. At least for the month of January and into February, when the planets are SO supportive in your professional arena!
In the meantime, when it comes to Chiron retrograde in your sign, self, and first house of body, in your life, it just hurts. You are, however, learning life lessons others would pay millions for. Chiron retrograde becomes Chiron direct Tuesday, December 26 – Boxing Day – and it doesn’t get any easier.
You may still be feeling a bit wounded and wobbly, but the wounds have made you realize you need to look out for yourself, and stop making everyone else the best versions of themselves. You need more me-first time in 2024. It will be risky and difficult, but it’s necessary. Remember how valuable you are – and now, not so secretly, vulnerable.
Your professional profile in the world, however, is extremely blessed in January 2024. If you need to change your job, find an agent, begin a new project, contact a mentor for a reference, give a presentation, this couldn’t be a better time.
You have a newly direct Mercury bouncing into your tenth career house January 13, joining the Sun and Mars and the Moon (New Moon January 11!) already pouring forth their energies. You may have felt as if you were practically ignoring your career, but, again, turn towards it again for this will the best time of the year to profit from it.
For in your tenth house – also ruling your public reputation – you have:
The ever-giver of life, the Sun
Your ruler, sexy Mars
Brilliant thinking-and-talking Mercury from January 13
A Capricorn New Moon on January 11
And revolutionary Pluto – UNTIL January 20, when Pluto finally leaves your tenth public house for your eleventh friends house. Finally. No more career shake-ups.
And your tenth house, traditionally ruled by serious Capricorn, rules:
Your public image
Higher-ups: the people with money in your world
What you are striving to be like
And sometimes, your mother
It’s like you’ve been traveling and working in a fog. You might have been attacked. Now the universe is urging you to strike out on your own, to trust your instincts, and to make new professional contacts.
It may not be so much a sentimental eating and drinking holiday as you might expect. It’s really OKAY not to feel the traditional holiday spirit this year…a familial dynamic comes to a crescendo on Boxing Day, December 26, with the full Cancer Moon.
Then, expect a new project in January, and more money in February.
The second week of January – wowie zowie!
You could even move into the spotlight with you as the news.
So be nice to your friends and play well with even a contact you might deem as insignificant – the assistant of an assistant for example, or someone from apparently “nowhere” – because she or he will tell everyone in the company how you behaved.
Which could lead to all sorts of repercussions, professionally and socially.
I know you hate to hear this sort of thing, so enough of that. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.
You have someone around you who has offered themselves but, strangely enough, you’re now more in the mood for friendship. You may just be emotionally exhausted, Aries, as you have endured and gone through a lot this past year.
Concerning love, your eyes have opened in a new way, and, in these next two years, they dramatically open again.
No more same old, same old. New lessons to be learned, with different consequences.
Now you will be free, Aries: to fly again.
So you will break free and you will doubtless travel somewhere life-altering, but some key belief in your life will also change. I can’t wait to hear what happens with you along these lines, Aries!
So, with being cheered on by the planets in your tenth career house and Jupiter just going direct at the end of the year – December 30, 2023 – in your second financial house, you will see more money roll in.
You are also being urged to go farther, stronger, and deeper in your life goals. You may ascend higher at work or even get wind of something else entirely from a friend and professional colleague far away, possibly in another country.
You find out that you are more popular than you even realize. This month your stars are telling you to reach high!
We can safely say your career will not be the same by the time Spring rolls around. And it looks good. Better than it’s been, actually – which is saying a LOT.
You have already come far in a new direction and you should be proud of yourself. You are opening your mind to the new, the untried, and the different. And it can only help you.
Just remember that change, even if it’s the best thing in the world for you, is traumatic in its very nature.
AND that old adage, ships are safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships were built for.
Remember this, and you will do fantastically. It’s up to you, Aries!
You are brave enough, strong enough, adventurous enough – and walk the path of the iconoclast well enough – that this will ultimately be a piece of cake for you.
People around you are swimming like crazy goldfish in two opposite directions – but isn’t everyone like this over the holidays?
By the end of the month, the water is crystal clear, and your choices are practically transparent. So positive that personal concerns will not concern you so personally anymore, and you will enjoy being treated like a star. This is fortune in the area of CAREER particularly. The line up in your tenth house of career, professional acclaim, ambition — even fame – is, in a word, awesome.
So, time to get cracking! Do not waste this golden window now through January!
That said, with the way you’re feeling now, it may feel like you’re being held up to scrutiny and pressure more than you can bear. And how can you possibly take anymore?
Give yourself a break! It’s the end of 2023. You are exhausted. You have done more this year than you ever thought possible.
In fact, you pulled off a coup right in the last two months of 2023 that still leaves me gasping with admiration. You did it, Aries, you did it!
Now, take a break.
You deserve it. Remember this: Me-first.
And now my dear Aries friend, I wish you a Merry Christmas! (Wished as a pagan.)
And THIS CHRISTMAS…
