Cue up Beyonce’s “Diva” on your headphones, because this month, you step up your professional game in a big way. When Venus retrograde enters your career house on the 2nd, you might have to deal with a change of plans at the office, but you do it with style. You get recognition for your grace under pressure on the 15th, when Venus is direct again. Who knew you had such impressive eyes on your work? Well, now you do.
The trade-off is that your patron planet, Mercury, will be retrograde from the 9th in your secrets zone, so you’ll have to keep whatever you’re working on strictly confidential for best results. While it might be tempting to leak, it’s likely to cause unwanted miscommunications or technical snafus. Think of it as a test of your self-control! Mercury retrograde moves into your groups sector on the 20th, so competition could spike. Lucky for you, Mars enters your sign on the 21st to give you extra willpower and energy to pull off a victory.
