monthly Career Horoscope for leo

Because the Sun will always spend the last 10 days and the first three weeks of each year in your work sector, the solar spotlight is always on your work situation, job matters and options as you move into the New Year. This allows you to move into your 2023 professional year with your eyes open and a clear view of what is in front of you and on the road ahead. However, the Sun is not on his own so there are a lot of different influences in play along with planets with different agendas and timeframes. The most urgent of those planets is Venus, who will not only leave your work sector on 3rd January but won't return until 2024. Venus began last year in your work sector as well but didn't leave until March, with a much smaller footprint this year but still an important one. This makes it important to start the year listening to your heart, as Venus works to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. It is a different story for Mercury, who not only starts the year in retrograde motion here but won't turn direct until 19th January. This is buying you time and that includes time back at the drawing board but also once the Sun leaves on 20th January for this smart and intellectually savvy planet to spend on his own with Pluto. After 14 years Pluto, the planet of change and revolution will leave your work sector and while he will return a few months later and again next year, these will be trips back to tie up loose ends. Mercury, who returned early last month for what is normally a 14 to 15 day chance to work smarter, get your head in the game, ideas on the table and the communication lines open, will be the last to have contact with Pluto before he too leaves next month. It is after the Sun leaves that Uranus will turn direct in your career sector on 23rd January, something that four days after Mercury's retrograde turn will give this new professional year the green light.
