On the whole, this period will be successful, although with respect to purely career-related accomplishments, a lot will actually depend on how well each particular sign worked last year. There will also be fundamentally new trends. For example, for the most part, 2018 will not be particularly good with respect to starting one's own business. Many signs, with few exceptions, could end up in a situation when opening their own business would bring them more disadvantages than advantages, in the most general sense. And in this regard even friends' help won't be of any use, although from the outside it will seem like there are both opportunities and possibilities. In this regard you need to treat the current time cycle with extreme caution.
On the other hand, 2018 will definitely bring a lot of positivity into your workplace. This could be the establishment of warm relationships with your managers or colleagues. Many will be able to progress together as a team, and if this team deserves it, all of its members will be truly happy. In short, this year it will be really possible to get satisfaction from moving up the corporate ladder. Of course, there are no guarantees, but Mercury in league with several other objects of the solar system (unique for each sign) indicates that there is a growing vector, at least potentially. In other words, you will definitely have to make an effort, but there is unlikely to be too much strain. Many could find themselves with a choice before them. Not a choice between career and family, but a choice between one career and another career. In this regard there won't be a wrong answer, you will just have to decide on something, to turn down one comfortable place in favor of another. This is not a case where it would be realistic to chase after two hares.
