The first half of the year the focus will be on initiating new projects, gaining more visibility and taking more of a leadership role. New relationships are being established and existing relationships are becoming more supportive both personally and professionally. Your circle of friendships will be increasing as well as your finances will continue to improve.
The first half of the year will bring about many adjustments that if embraced will put us all on a better track for the second half because relational Venus or Shukra will be retrograde until January 31st, discerning Mercury or Budhi will be retrograde in February, ambitious Mars or Mangala will be retrograde March 1st through May 19th, then Mercury is retrograde again in June and Saturn will turn direct July 20th. Retrograde periods are important cycles to make any needed readjustments.
But there is a definite shift unfolding the 2nd half of 2014 as the Rahu/Ketu axis changes signs in July, Guru or Jupiter changes signs in June and Shani or Saturn changes signs in November.
The major changes during the second half will refocus your attention from relationships to your work and improving your health. Your home life will bring more contentment with opportunities to change residence or make improvements to your home. Career will expand as you become more competitive at your job or business. And many of you will seek at healthier lifestyle by eating better and exercising more.
