Career developments that arose during the year-end holidays need swift attention. You may still be shaking the confetti from your hair as you wake up on the 1st, but you won’t have a moment to spare as your prepare to take advantage of this professional opportunity. You’re in a cycle of considerable financial favor, so you must act before Jupiter leaves Taurus later this year. The 12th and 13th will be ideal for holding meetings about your position. Your housing situation or a family member will consume you within four days of the full moon on the 9th. Fortunately, Mars will help bring resolution to any problems. But Mars is your ruler and will retrograde on the 24th until April 14th, so you need to work quickly to get through your to-do list. If you do face setbacks, take them in stride and be willing to adjust on a whim. The upside will be the new moon on the 23rd, when you’ll have the time to enjoy a sparkling social and romantic life.
