The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month. The 10th house rules your work and career. This transit could bring hard-won recognition. It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do. In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that.
The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.
If you are not quite ready to make the change, this is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time. getting into the second week of December through early February, the stars more favor BIG launches and important major steps!
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work. Past labors can show up now in major ways and new projects can start or be brought out to the world with brilliant support. Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. NEW opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.
Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.
The area of the chart that is accentuated now also rules your reputation out in the world. Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂
For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose. Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world all month and beyond through the year. Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change. It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.
Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe is going through something and he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way.
Mercury goes retrograde October 31 – November 20 and its post-transit shadow period lasts until December 9, 2019. See my Mercury Retrograde Surthrival Video for more info about this transit. From December 9, 2019 through through February 2, 2020 is one of the best, most wide open launch periods until 2021. Big launches, major decisions, huge steps, important plans, are all perfect for this window. So take advantage of this window for ACTION and FORWARD MOVEMENT! The rest of 2020 as we move into February is more focused inward and backward because of the string of personal planet retrogrades (Venus, Mars, and 3 Mercury).
There will be a couple of open points amidst the retrograde wall, the last few days of March 2020 and first week or so of April 2020 and a few days towards the end of July 2020 represent an energetic ‘coming up for air’ so you can set your sights on these times for important things that can’t be implemented sooner. After that, it will be December 2020 before there is any wearing off of the retrograde focus, and even that month is completely covered in Mars post-retrograde shadow period.
Do keep in mind that retrogrades can be awesome for many things (see my blog Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades for ideas of great ways to use your energy from Oct 13 through December 9), but for the big, never been done, launches, clarity and big decisions, the times when the personal planets are in direct motion tend to be better for launching your ships of dreams.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Aries Horoscope is more relevant for you.
