The workplace can often be a battlefield or a jungle. It's maybe the most apt description for the social dynamics involved. You have people fighting for scraps and willing to take anyone down. It's worth you're noticing this and not ignoring it, Virgo. This doesn't mean you have to become a beast, fighting everyone who gets in your way. It does mean you need to protect what's yours and take care of your domain. You're going to observe everyone around you and see how people are fighting. A good warrior gets to know their enemy, and that's what you're going to do. Yes, you need to see your workmates as your enemies, at least on one level. Once you see where everyone is, that's when you'll strike. Ask your boss for a new project or a raise. Reach out to someone about working for them. You're not going to bring anyone else down, but you are going to fight for what's yours.
This is what's going to take over the beginning of 2020, especially in the first few months. Yes, you'll be busy for the rest of the year, but this is when the big, crucial actions need to take place. Be prepared for great change as a result of your actions. You might well be in a very new, very good position after this, whatever form this takes. You're going to start this whole process in January, planning your attack and then following through with it. Start January 2020 with a careful analysis of what's going on in your workplace and what sorts of potential problems you see happening there. You might have an annoying co-worker who is constantly trying to compete with you or a project that seems doomed to failure. This is your tactical time. Then early February 2020 you develop a plan for how you want to deal with it. No, don't physically attack anyone. If it's a person you need to deal with, set up a time this month to talk to them (or their superior or HR). If it's a more nebulous concept like the direction of the company, see if you can offer your bosses a better idea, or at least warn them of your concerns. If it's more a concern about the direction of the company in general, then your attack is going to take the form of making an exit strategy. Sometimes the best offense is a good defense.
This leaves the rest of the 2020 year of the Rat for resting and reflection. This doesn't mean total inactivity, though. It does mean living with the results of your actions earlier. Maybe your workplace is more enjoyable and productive now. If so, bask in it and continue to thrive. If the answer you arrived at was making your exit (or at least planning for it), then you've got your work for the year. Springtime is when you'll want to hit the pavement, trying to find some alternatives. Expect this to bear fruit for you by June at the latest. This could be another full-time position, but it might also mean a social connection that is going to help you with your career sometime in the near future. That's a valuable thing to have, so nurture that connection as best as you can.
In 2020 you're built to thrive in the workplace and jungle and there's no reason you can't continue to. Keep up this pattern of resting, pouncing, and resting again and you'll be in good shape. You're priming yourself for the strongest year ever in 2021.
