Profession and Finances
Jupiter guarantees a good financial position throughout 2016 with this continued transit through your 2nd house up until September. Its close proximity to the Moon and your North Node as the year starts is further testimony of ample opportunity to increase your financial position. These combinations are usually lucky but you need to be careful not to allow your desires to get out of hand.
Mercury is principally your income and profit planet ruling the 2nd and 11th houses of your horoscope. Its position in your 6th house as 2016 starts warns against excessive expenditure which could be a result of an easy flow of income from the Jupiter and Moon contact. Although you may earn a lot of money, spending more than you earn will of course be a problem so try to balance the income and outgoings in the next few months.
Confusion over your shared resources is also a possibility with Neptune in your 8th house and kicking off the year with a square from Venus may show unreal expectations. Others may also deceive you with this combination so do be careful especially in work matters to make sure you study in a detailed fashion any contracts offered. Venus is your career planet and being in hard aspect to Neptune indicates a fuzzy sort of combination highlighting your inattention to detail and looking at the world through an unrealistic prism.
And speaking of work, you have somewhat of a rebellious and progressive nature this year even though the first month or so may be a little quiet. This can be expected as Venus moves to the conjunction of Saturn around January 9. The trine aspect to Jupiter from Venus on February 10, the trine aspect to Saturn on April 19, its transit into your 11th house of profits and good business connections on May 24 and in particular the excellent conjunction to Jupiter in your 2nd house of finance on August 28 are all particularly notable dates when your professional life can hit significant high points this year.

One of your biggest tasks in the coming 12 months will be dealing with work colleagues who may wish to dominate and manipulate the professional relationship you have with them and the onus is on you to be aware of this and to diplomatically handle these toxic sorts of characters.

Be careful of secret enemies through this period.
Speaking of Saturn in your 5th house, it’s important to stick to more conservative ways of investing. Real estate is probably a better bet. Do things in small measured ways financially and you are likely to come out on top. Investments, dealing with these workplace issues and also generally attaining a better financial position will be a challenge for you in December as Mercury, finance ruler transit your 6th house of debts and financial obligations. This is well countered by Venus transiting your 7th house indicating that you should rely on other people who are trusted advocates and allies. A new partnership can start just before Christmas and this , as I mentioned in your romantic segment is further testified by the Venus trine Jupiter on December 25.
Karma and Luck
Taking care of family responsibilities can indeed have a positive effect on your karma throughout January and February.
