I just realized that Venus is going to spend more than one–third of the entire year in my tenth house. The planet enters that part of my chart on May 30 and doesn’t leave until a week into October.

As a Capricorn with Libra rising, this is a comfortable transit for me. I identify a lot with the job that I do, and it’s important for me to come across as likeable at my place of work. By the end of the month when Venus actually conjoins my midheaven to begin this new phase, it is likely that I will have two new bosses. I can’t imagine a better time to turn on the charm!

“Café Astrology” offers the following interpretation of the typically brief transit:

“During this cycle, you are most charming and well-received on the job. Your responsibility and authority are likeable qualities now, making this a favorable period overall for schmoozing with those in a higher position than you, as well as for negotiations or social activities related to business. Venus is charming, friendly, and affectionate, and her presence in your career and reputation sector brings social opportunities to your career. You are coming across well at work now, and romantic opportunities, or simply more chances to socialize and network, are likely. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come though your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent, or, indirectly through your marriage partner. People who turn your head during this cycle are those who come across as especially competent.”

While I don’t believe that I’ve been particularly well-received at work during the challenging times I’ve experienced over the last several months, it’s going to be much easier for me to turn on the charm now that my manager has vacated her position. In some ways, I feel like I’ve been on a reality show, competing to be the last one standing. Now that I’ve reached that milestone, I’m ready for the sequel where I’m going to be star of the new season.

I’m optimistic about this upcoming phase of my life. I’m actually looking forward to returning to work tomorrow, and I wouldn’t have been able to say that just a few weeks ago. It will be a lot easier to be charming when I’m not under the thumb of someone who brought out the worst in me.
