Your innovation in the workplace will not go unrecognized this year, and you can expect professional growth no matter what area you work in, as long as you get your head down and work hard to show the people who matter what you are really made of!
The Sun enters Pisces on March 14th, and with it you might see your mind lighting up with brilliant ideas and new approaches to certain problems in your career. This will help you to put the extra creative spin on your outstanding work, and gives you confidence that you have done your best.
When Mars enters Scorpio from March 20th it brings a sort of focus and level of communication that will see you flying high if you have a desk job or work in marketing. Put in the extra hours at the office, and never be afraid to put forward those new ideas that could help to drive sales within your company.
When the Sun then passes through Aries from April 14th, you may find that you have to slow down the pace at work a little bit, contrary to your recent spurt of success. It might be the case that your personal life will start to become more of a focus, or it might be your own fatigue and lethargy that forces you into taking a break, or cutting back on long hours of overtime.
However, things will pick up for you pretty quickly again. The activity of Venus will bring you the opportunity to make further improvements in your career, as it passes through Taurus on May 20th. Tasks that have been long outstanding should now be wrapped up and delivered, especially if you work in the finance sector... If not you risk going round in circles without actually making any further improvement. Have faith that now is the time to hand in your work.
The first major obstacles in your business life may come towards the end of June. Although Venus' presence in Gemini will keep your creativity and innovation levels high, Mars will enter Libra on the 22nd and bring with it some uphill struggles. You may see conflict with friends and family who you previously felt support from, or you may find that plans at work just do not seem to pay off – despite careful planning.
All I can say here is that challenges are all part of your character building. If things happened too easily for you, you just might not appreciate them. These obstacles aren't likely to cause you any serious setbacks, but instead serve to remind you of how lucky you are to have come this far, and how important it is to balance your work life with other aspects, such as love and family.
One of the most amazing planetary forecasts of the year for you comes during August and September, when Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, and the Sun, all enter Virgo! This is a very favorable period for you in terms of financial gain and professional focus. You may reach a status of fame within the workplace at this time, due in part to all the extra effort and innovation you have brought to the company during the year.
However, you should be aware that this recognition could instead come from other places. You may find that your recognition, rather than coming from your boss, comes from your friends and family who want to congratulate you on recent advancements in your personal life, such as an addition of a new family member...
After a successful year in your career, and a mostly positive and favorable outlook for your work life, you wouldn't want to ruin it right at the end would you?
In November, Venus enters Sagittarius, and brings you another round of professional obstacles. These obstacles are actually molehills, but your own laziness will make them look like mountains. Only when you can conquer your own mental state will you find that the problems were never too great in the first place.
In terms of your career, 2016 is a great year for you, with some great periods of career growth and innovation in the workplace. August and September are the best times for you to advance.
