In October the planetary power began to shift to the upper half of your Horoscope. This month, from the 21st onwards, the shift is even more pronounced.

From the 12th to the 26th almost all of the planets (90 per cent) are above the horizon. The other times it is 80 per cent. So your career and outer ambitions are important now. Your 4th house of home and family is empty this month (only the Moon moves through there on the 5th and 6th). Your 10th house of career, in contrast, is ultra-powerful – especially from the 21st onwards. Career is the main headline this month. This is where the focus should be. The month ahead should be successful.

Saturn makes a major move (it only happens every two to two-and-a-half years) into your 10th house on the 21st. The Sun will move in on the 21st and Venus on the 25th.

Saturn’s move is very significant. It indicates more career responsibilities. Yes, these can be burdensome, but it’s generally a sign of success. The people who take more responsibility are the people who get promoted. The career will be demanding, for sure. But if you take up the burdens – don’t try to evade them – you will find unexpected help. Also you’ll be setting the stage for long-term – enduring – success.

Bosses are likely to be over-demanding, exacting, over-controlling and on your case. This is generally not pleasant. The best way to handle this is to give your boss more than is demanded. There is a spiritual law involved here.

Health is good until the 21st but afterwards (and for the next two years) will need watching. There are many planets in stressful alignment with you. You won’t be able to escape the demands of the career, but you can handle them in more energy efficient ways. Delegate wherever possible. Take short breaks when you feel tired. Spend more of your free time at a health spa or schedule more massages or other natural therapies. Keep the focus on the really important things in your life and let go of the trivia. (Marie Kondo’s advice about possessions applies to the thought process as well.) Your health planet spends the month in Sagittarius, your 9th house. Health can be enhanced through thigh massage (which will also strengthen the lower back) and liver care.

The month ahead is prosperous, with Venus in lucky Sagittarius (and the lucky 9th house) until the 25th. Earnings increase. You spend more (perhaps overspend) but you also earn more. You have a happy-go-lucky, optimistic attitude to finance. Perhaps you are too optimistic. After the 25th, as Venus moves into Capricorn, the financial judgement is more realistic, more conservative. Pay rises (official or unofficial) are likely.
